Great Tv. We are really enjoying this Tv, it has great color and the quality it’s outstanding.
Must get if you are looking into replacing your current tv. We were told they don’t make the carve tv any more and this is the only one they make.
Get it!!!Dec 25, 2020 21:14
Ive been wanting a curve tv for about a year, and I finally got one. It is all I thought it would be and more. No regrets, just happiness. Love how I can view at even the side angles.Jan 23, 2021 21:39
The Curve Television is Great!. Love the quality & picture. Sound is great, app & remote are easy to useOct 22, 2021 18:41
Love it! I bought my first Samsung curved tv in 2016. It was a 65" Quantum Dot. Loved it too. We moved to Florida and the guest room was large do we decided to put another large 65" curved into that room. However, we didn't think we needed another Quantum dot for just occasional guest use do I started researching and found this model. I have to be honest, there is only very subtle differences between this model and our quantum dot. It is a fantastic tv. Beautiful picture. Sound isn't the greatest so we added a Samsung sound bar and presto, beautiful system. For $1600 we got the 65"Curved tv, a Samsung sound bar and all the cords and hookups in an install install kit that the Geek Squad put in perfectly! Highly recommend all these products and services. That's twice Best Buy and Samsung have come through with a great system. We will buy from and use them againMay 22, 2021 07:28
I love anything Samsung and thus I love this TV. I am bias so my opinion shouldn't count :) but yeah! Samsung RULES!!Mar 12, 2021 16:22
Fantastic buy! Technology made easy. Combined with Samsung bar series brings the TV aliveDec 25, 2020 20:39
Goes perfect on our corner tv stand! Couldn’t be happier!!Nov 06, 2020 15:39
I am still learning to know all the capabilities of this TV but it does not stop surprising me every day with the qualities it has.May 14, 2021 18:02

This is my first smart TV and I went all out and got the big TV 65 in Samsung. Every TV that I've ever owned since there was flat screen televisions I've always had Samsungs. I don't know why but I just prefer the clarity and the quality of the television.
The Smart TV has made me completely wireless. I don't have to pay for cable because basically because I'm an Amazon prime member I have pretty much anything I want to watch between Samsung TV and prime. I do pay for Netflix but it's not exactly as good as what I can get for free. The television is awesome. I'm still learning it and it's been a month. I'll probably be learning it for a while. I made a good decision.Jul 24, 2020 22:22
Beautiful tv pic quality is nice crisp clear happy with my purchase I had a Samsung T8000 this tv is a lot better decided to go ahead and spend the extra money it was worth it !Nov 27, 2020 19:51
This TV is a nice bright tv. The colors are great. The black levels are ok but even though it is a QLED, it’s a 60 Hertz QLED. I would not recommend it to the mid-level gamer or heavy movie watcher. I don’t like the remote. I prefer LG’s Magic remote over the Samsung smart remote.Aug 04, 2020 06:33
Great image quality ( ethernet connectec)
Sources of content used so far: netflix, youtube, youtube TV, xbox, xbox 4k dvd, disney plus, appleTV
This TV has most of the apps
Potent and clear sound
TV menu/ dasboard sometimes slow to respond / laggy when remote control imput placed tha’s why 4/5 startsJul 25, 2020 06:33
My 65 Samsung QLED was purchased with my 85 QLED and the 65 went straight to the loft! The image is clean clear and extremely sharp!
I did have Geek Squad installed the surround sound system in it so that it looks factory! So the sounds pouts you in a mind of a movie theater!Feb 02, 2021 22:32
Love the quality of the color. Would like the remote to have more of the functions visible so I don't have to figure out which button is the guide or information. Reminds me of an Ipod. Looks nice but i'm more interested in function. Also would like a little more extensive quick use guide.Jan 16, 2021 17:01
I’m a little biased when it comes to Samsung products. My TV is just an upgraded version of the one I had so this is 2020 and the previous one I had was 2017. The remote is even a little bit better because now it has where if I just want to switch from watching Netflix or Amazon prime I don’t even have to head out an additional button. Colour contrast everything is just amazing. I love the remote because all my devices or Samsung so it just work with all my devices in the house.Jan 05, 2021 21:54
I had this tv since December , the picture it’s nice the sound it’s good and also have a lot of free movie included it’s so nice to have snug screen like 65 inchFeb 12, 2021 21:06

I can SEE Again! This 65" Samsung replaced our 32" in our Living room. Our old Entertainment center had doors that could only accommodate a 32" TV. In the pic you can see one of the doors as I had to chop up the old entertainment center and reattach the top so the 65" would fit. I HIGHLY recommend getting a swivel stand for this TV. It really helps as the tiny feet that come with this model are fairly useless... We do have a 55" Samsung that is 7 years old in the Master bedroom. The older, 55" Samsung's picture is MUCH sharper/colorful than this new, 65" SAMSUNG. We paid for the GEEK SQUAD delivery, set-up and tune-up for our new TV so that is not the cause of the less sharp picture. Regardless, I can actually now READ/SEE the TV Cable guide, the score of games and where the football actually went so it's a HUGE improvement for our household;) I think my housemate, James is VERY happy that I can now read the score and see the guide. It's ot bad for a SAMSUNG budget TV. I may pay for better TV technology in the future but for now, this TV has been quite fun, even though not as clear/sharp as our older SAMSUNG. The remote is curved, comfortable, responsive and practical. Due to the increased TV size (almost home theater like) I realized I have been missing SO MANY smaller details in film and T.V. Now that I can see again, we purchased DISNEY, HBO-MAX, NETFLIX, etc. We LOVE our new, 65" SAMSUNG!!! Get a BIGGER TV, especially if you are older with failing sight and you won't be disappointed!!Jan 23, 2021 02:11
Great TV! This purchase hit a sweet spot at Best Buy. I researched various 4K TV’s and this Samsung was what I was looking for with great spec’s! I also was very pleased with our previous Samsung TV. Best Buy also offered a package deal with a Samsung sound bar. The other factor was the $100 give card Best Buy offered! Loving our new system!Jun 20, 2020 11:05
I’ll be completely honest this tv is good but not great. Probably can find a better one for cheaper. The colors are great but the corners sometimes aren’t completely black. Watching when it’s bright in a room it’s hard to see as well. Constantly changing the color settings. The almost see less edges are really nice and the quality tooSep 18, 2020 17:07
LOVE the TV...BUUUT, the Samsung streaming system and app is TERRIBLE and overly complicated. So, ended up having to buy a Google Smartcast ($40 or so) device to plug into it...them everything worked fine (thanks to the knowledgeable associate that turned me on to that little device). I would've returned the TV otherwise... now I'm happy.Dec 18, 2020 15:48
I bought this tv May 12, 2020. I don’t know why it’s saying August. But I’ve had this tv for over a year now and it still works great with no issues. Definitely was a great buy and I got it on sale! The hisense in my room is starting to act up so I will be getting another one of these to replace it.Jun 13, 2021 13:48
purchased it on a whim and loved it ever since! quality of the tv is good and sturdy. same goes for the video quality if you have a good enough internet connection. it is preferable to use a ethernet cable to have a much better connection but wifi can work the same if not to far from the modem. multiple apps support the samsung TV and a vast variety are free. it of course has access to Netflix and Hulu along with Disney+. overall it is an amazing TVJul 24, 2020 17:38
This TV is amazing. I recently replaced my guest room tv with a 43’ 7000 version of this tv, and vowed to replace every tv in the house with a samsung tv. The TV is super smart, and many of the other accessories that you needed before, you no longer need. My Bose surround system hooked up via Bluetooth. My phone, and I-phone streams directly to the tv using airplay (no need for Apple TV). This tv is really something special, and its one of their lower end TVs.Aug 28, 2021 18:51
When watching, you almost feel like you're in the room with them. Setting the wallpaper up with a picture of the wall before hanging the TV is almost scarey. It makes the TV disappear, almost. It's never been so easy to cast your phone or computer to it. The only thing disappointing was from sales. Wish he had thought to mention that my old bracket was too small to hold it and up sell me extenders. Oh and the screws are bigger as well. Another up sell he missed. Unfortunately, going to Walmart for those.Jun 20, 2021 16:34

I’ve had this tv for a few months now. Hasn’t been any issues. Although, I wish I would have saved up more money and got the Q80T with the full array backlight. You can tell the difference between edgelit. You really have to mess with the setting to get the “almost” perfect settings in filmmaker mode “once I figured that out.” If you are watching older movies they appear to be a little bit darker, you have to keep messing with the settings is one of the things I don’t like. Other than that, I haven’t had any issues with the quality of picture, sound is great (very loud on amplify) and great bass, color is amazing! I’ve never lost Wifi connection on this TV referring to other reviews I’ve read. Motion rate is 120 which is great, but you have to dive into the settings and make some adjustments in custom picture quality mode and put the “blur reduction” and “judder reduction” on full 10 under (custom). This seems to almost completely get rid of any lag for the most part on faster moving tv or movies. “LED Clear Motion” only seems to darken the screen and doesn’t really help much with “motion!” Also, it’s not the best in bright rooms.. you will have a little glare during the daytime with light coming through the windows. Best in dark rooms. If you want to pay a little less for a very good quality tv I would by this one over the 60T, but if you want the best of the best, like I said, I wish I would have saved up more for the “full array backlight” on the Q80T. Overall great tv though!Jan 09, 2021 10:11
Samsung is always the leader in screen technology, which is why Apple uses Samsung to manufacturer their iPhones. So it was no brainer to get a Samsung TV. So far I was not disappointed. It’s a smart TV and easily receives signals from different apps and I can seamlessly share screen from my MacBook and PC computers. This smart TV is easily able to recognize what type of device it’s connected to. In addition, the advance chip enhances fluidity of movement of ok’d movies which makes it seem it’s HD. This was my first flat screen TV and I’m glad I bought it.Nov 06, 2021 14:43
I was between this tv and the Sony x900h. After reading reviews on the Sony I probably should of went with the Sony. But i am happy with this Samsung. I’m no expert on color or black levels and all those extras but I can tell when I have a nice picture and this met my expectations. Also the speakers are ok,they’re loud enough but I still went with a sound bar.Oct 16, 2020 15:58
If you’re a movie, sports fan and just all out visual freak of nature then, you can’t go wrong with the QLED from Samsung! I have both the model i’m writing this review on and the non QLED model and you can easily see the difference. The gaming mode feature makes games run a lot smoother without having to deal with lag.Dec 14, 2020 08:05
My purchase of the Samsung, 65” Class Q70T Series QLED 4K UHD Smart Tizen TV with the top line mounting bracket for wall mount was definitely the best purchase I’ve made in quite a while. The guys that installed were in and out in 15/20 minutes and everything operating exceptionally well. Would recommend this purchase to anyone with limited wall space but looking for a larger TV that doesn’t take away from the rest of the room.Mar 06, 2021 10:55
Purchased the 65 inch Q70 for our living room. Picturw is excellent as is the refresh rate. Movies look like you are there watching. Also purchased the Q70 soundbar. Bass is subtle when needed an thunderous if u prefer that. Cannot wait to hook uo my Xbox Series X. That I also putchased from BestBuy!Dec 05, 2020 09:04
So I got this tv about a month ago and so far it’s been pretty awesome! Plays my ps5 perfectly, with the HDMI 2.1 port. Shows and movie ms look great. My only complaint would be it’s brightness, and by that I mean it’s lack of brightness. Other then that great TV.Dec 11, 2020 16:46
Great size, light weight. Great resolution and apps. Happy with new purchase so far. Only complaint is that it doesn’t stay connected to wifi like my other devices and I have to reset the network on the settings on the tv and re-enter my wifi information. Doubt it’s a tv issues but it is quite annoyingJan 22, 2021 16:42

I did a lot of research before buying, and it paid off.
My watching use cases are movies, sports, and YouTube, and often in a room that is well lit, but never blacked out.
As such I wanted 4K QLED (instead of OLED, which is known to be excellent in black out conditions), with decent motion handling, good brightness (to account for ambient light in the room), and as minimal glare as possible.
This tv has overachieved vs the expectations I had before buying in each of these departments. In particular, viewing angles are wider than I expected them to be.
Definitely add a sound bar if you care about listening to what your watching.
Go Bills!Jan 06, 2021 07:50
This tv is so sick!! I was going to shell out the $4,000 for the same thing but the 8k and read some reviews before purchasing that were claiming this tv was just as good if not better than the 8k version. Obviously I was a little skeptical but I got this one on sale for $1,800 Black Friday (less than half price of 8k) so I jumped in it and it was WELL WORTH IT!! The quality is incredible!Dec 25, 2020 17:28
I have been using Samsung 8 Series in my Living and Media rooms and but I wanted to try out the Qled for my bedroom so I have finally made up my mind keeping in mind the price difference to see how different It would be and I must say It is different TRUST ME on this. I have been doing research for almost 3 months, reading all the reviews and all but in the end its worth it. I know its pricey and all but its a one time bitter sip and after that you will enjoy watching TV.Mar 25, 2021 09:30
So I'm happy that I bought this, I was really looking for a TV that was suitable for me, that is a good gaming TV with a great image (without burning). the transfer to the QLED 8T series was magical. And this is the first time that I have a television that does not require a third party platform to transmit television. It's much easier, it saves energy (hence $) by running a device, and the streaming performance is 10 times better (fewer interruptions or errors I got from apps like funimation on PS4). So i'm happy I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest feedback as I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest feedbackMay 22, 2020 11:07
Love it!I want to television for a bright room, this adorns the living room now. The qualities is as expected and I don’t really see much glare in a setting that it currently is, happy with the purchaseDec 25, 2020 21:11
Samsung’s Q80T with the quantum dot technology and it’s 4K processor does deliver excellent out of the world experience. The first thing we did when we got this TV was to connect to our son’s Xbox console. We were quite impressed as the clarity was outstanding and the halo and blur that we were experiencing on our old unit was no longer present. One of the primary reasons we got this model is because of its Real Game Enhancer+ option and we are completely satisfied with Samsung’s promise. Packaging: The QLED TV came nicely packaged. To avoid having your prints on the new TV, Samsung has a special film with foam on the edges. So, when you pick up the TV to place it on a stand your will not have your prints on the TV. This is amazing and wish other manufactures would include in their packaging. Setup: The floating plate is very slick and strong. It holds the QLED perfectly. The instructions to attach the stand provided in the box are simple to follow. Once the QLED is turned on the interface to set is up is also quite easy. You simply turn on the unit and follow the steps. To activate their Voice assistant, you must have a Samsung account. I prefer Samsung’s AI over the other brands (responds very well to my voice). The remote is quite small so you must be a little careful where you store it. Experience: As mentioned earlier – out of the world when it comes to gaming experience. For the past few days we have also been watching various shows and movies due to stay at home order. If you want a TV with better viewing angles then this is the model for you. I personally did not notice any image degradation when viewing from different angles. This Samsung Q80T TV does provide very good picture – deeper and more uniform blacks when we watching Gravity. Felt like we were in the scene with the actors. Very smooth motion with low input lag. Amazing feeling. The contrast on the QLED is quite impressive. Everything pops brilliantly bright where it needs to be. the sound coming out this TV is quite astonishing. This QLED built in 2.2.2 speaker system with output of 60 watts of power. The only minor issue I discovered is searching for the apps. After downloading the apps you will have to add them to the bar. They do not automatically populate. Other than that they have several apps besides the most common ones. Overall excellent QLED by Samsung for gamers and for watching movies and shows. I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest feedback.May 07, 2020 16:26
I have been using this TV for about 3 weeks and It has exceeded my expectationsJul 10, 2020 16:18
Incredibly vivid colors and a pretty decent sound but a good soundbar with woofer and satellite speakers completent the great cinematic experience. Smarter hub and redesigned slim remote are a definite plus. Another huge plus: new streaming apps like HBOMAX and DISNEY PLUS are just a few clicks away eliminating the need for a streaming media device saving you a couple of hundred dollars (Nvidia Shield is the only one who offers both platforms. Other TV brands do not have this advantage! Most importantly for us: we didn't want to hang our TV on our rare stone work above our fireplace and most models have at least a 12 inch footprint. Too big. This TV'S awesome stand in the center protrudes out the back at a low 35 degree angle profile making it possible to push the TV stand couple of inches in the console compartment above the mantle giving us a footprint width of about 11 inches. This allowed us to securely place our TV on the mantle and save our stone from possible install damage and TV position permanency. Overall great TV with a good, slim, clean rear surface. One thing Samsung has not tackled yet though is glare. Your living room lights reflect as prismatic linear lines on the screen and the only ones we found not affecting glare are the spot lights above the fireplace. After a while though we kind of block them out and Edison vintage brown glass light bulbs cut down some of the glare.Nov 07, 2020 13:20
The QN85A upgrades your home entertainment experience with super charged 4K, an anti-glare screen, and an ultra-high contrast picture. These Advanced-Premium Samsung models feature a breakthrough matrix of Quantum Mini LEDs that focus light precisely where needed for breathtaking contrast. With the QN85A, our most advanced Samsung 4K TV processor powers Next-Gen Gaming capabilities, a new generation of apps, and sound that moves with the onscreen action. And with HDR10+, colors are adjusted scene-by-scene to enhance what you watch.
This TV replaced our 2016 Samsung (top model at that time), and let me tell you…the picture is outstanding. Paired with a compatible Samsung soundbar provides outstanding sound quality.
Depth of colors are outstanding. No blur while watching football. You can see grass blades! Dynamic color contrast. I prefer the QLED over the OLED because there is less of a chance for burnout.
If you like to customize your picture, it is loaded with options to do that. We had difficulty hooking up our antenna but is likely our issue and not the TV.
We had Best Buy mount the TV on our wall. It really makes this TV stand out. With a Total Tech Support membership, you get two years of Best Buy coverage for free. We are protected in the event something where to happen, which is a nice peace of mind to have.
If you want a TV with great features, clarity and outstanding contrast without breaking our budget, this is it. We always buy Samsung TVs because their picture quality is second to none.
We will be a satisfied owners for years to come!Oct 30, 2021 12:30
I am really in love with this tv the picture and clarity is magnificent. I paired it with the Samsung HWQ 950a sound bar . The sound without a sound bar is still worthy the purchase of the tv. I am enjoying it so far. It works real well while watching football and all sporting events. I will say if you purchase you want be disappointed.Oct 18, 2021 18:34
TV is awesome and puts out great quality 4K especially for my Xbox Series X! Even ha da buddy buy the same tv and in love with the tv. Can’t go wrongSep 04, 2021 08:45
My husband and I absolutely love this TV. The HDR is amazing and the range and depth of the blacks is excellent. The TV software allows us to quickly switch from watching Netflix, to watching something on cable, to playing video games. One of my favorite features is the art mode as it allows to fit better in the room when not in use rather than having a giant black rectangle on the wall.Apr 22, 2021 22:27
I’m a Samsung nerd and used to be a Samsung tv sales rep. I bought this to replace my Q80r, which I love. The picture looks really good, way better than my Q80r. But the blacks are slightly off at some angles and the anti glare is almost non existent when compared to prior years models. You can tell it’s there when you shine a light at it, you see the slight rainbow effect but it’s not at all the past years anti glare. The local dimming is also very good and far superior than prior years as well. But it’s just a huge let down. I would not be as upset if they stated it didn’t have any anti glare, but that’s one of their selling points they are pushing. I would recommend the tv, but I would tell people the anti glare is not a selling point for this model, maybe the Q90a, but I don’t know if the anti glare is better for that model.May 15, 2021 10:54
My wife and I absolutely love the 65"Q85AA Samsung Neo QLED 4k Smart TV. I primarily utilize it for gaming, and there is no noticeable input lag and the picture quality and HDR looks amazing. My wife primarily uses it to stream shows and the 4k is stunning. The black/dark colors have great depth and the color really pops. Our favorite feature is the Samsung built in software. It works great to quickly switch between apps and the navigation is intuitive. I'd highly recommend this TV if you are looking for an excellent TV that will work in a variety of situations.Apr 05, 2021 22:01
This Tv is so vibrant and bring new life to our living room.
No reflection, color is clear but sometimes the sound fade away may be due to some misadjustment.Jul 02, 2021 19:13
This tv just blew me away with the colors, the wide angle views, the sheer crispness of the picture quality just melted my face! Ok thats all I have to stay, oh and it looks sleek and elegantly simple, my 65 inch definitely looks good in the living room and its a perfect match made in heaven with my Xbox SeriesXMay 21, 2021 08:44

The TV was very easy to setup. In fact, when powering it on, the TV played some soothing music while walking me through the process... nice touch! The process involved installing the SmartThings app, which unfortunately requires setting up a Samsung account (minor gripe). The app automatically detected my TV over Bluetooth and allowed me to easily setup the Wifi and basic settings through my phone.
Unfortunately, the TV only has 2 HDMI inputs. For most people, this should cover their cable box (or streaming box) and a game console, but for me, I needed a 3rd input for my BluRay player as well.
## Picture Quality
From the early reviews for this TV, I see some owners had an issue with the picture quality. I've installed the latest version of the firmware and have not noticed any issues. This can be done by pressing the small "Settings" button near the bottom of the remote, then navigating to Support > Software Update.
I've owned a couple Samsung TVs and have always been impressed with their picture quality. The 7-series for 2020 does not disappoint. Colors are vibrant and the picture is very clear.
I found the TV's default "Standard" setting to be a little to washed out. Here are the settings I like, which doesn't mean you'll necessarily like them, but they're here for anyone that wants to try them:
Press the Settings button towards the bottom of the remote, and navigate to Picture > Expert Settings.
Apply Picture Settings: All Sources
Picture Clarity Settings: Auto
Contrast Enhancer: High (can make some scenes look washed out; sometimes I prefer it Off)
Film Mode: Off
Color Tone: Standard
... the rest of the settings I left at default
Also, go to Settings > General > Eco Solution and bring up the "minimum brightness" to about 25. I found the TV got too dim at times on the default setting (it adjusts based on the ambient lighting in the room).
Almost every Samsung TV I've owned has an issue with the "Auto Motion Plus" feature, particularly when watching programs on ABC (I'm not sure why) where the picture randomly jerks harshly. I'm happy to say that I have not noticed this behavior on this TV.
Gamers: don't forget to enable "Game Mode" in the settings. The "Auto" setting has worked well at detecting when I switch between my Nintendo Switch and my Apple TV box.
Apple TV 4K owners: Samsung seems to go into a different picture mode whenever HDR is enabled, which I find annoying as it ignores all of my settings above (this also happened on my previous Samsung TV). In the Apple TV settings, I usually set the Display Mode to 4K SDR 60Hz (which turns off the HDR output).
As a "cord cutter," I really appreciate the work Samsung has done implementing a free streaming service they call Samsung TV Plus (which is esentially a rebranded version of Pluto TV). Samsung TV Plus is directly integrated with the TV's built-in guide (which is also free) and shows free streaming channels after your antennae's local broadcast channels. So you can go channel surfing seamless between Over-the-Air stations and streaming Internet stations. The TV also highlights available on-demand movies and TV shows that are also free. So kudos to Samsung for creating and integrating a free streaming service that doesn't require yet another subscription!
I rely on apps heavily, in particular Netflix and YouTube TV. Netflix works on about every Smart TV known to man, but YouTube TV is hit or miss. I was happy to find that YouTube TV is available on this Samsung TV! Therefore, I can use YouTube TV without needing to switch inputs to my Apple TV box (but I find the Apple TV box to be faster and more responsive than the built-in apps).
Other apps I noticed available in the TV's app section include Disney+, Apple TV service, Hulu, HBO, Sirius XM and more. Of course, these services are not free and require a subscription.
If you have an iPhone or iPad, you'll also be happy to know that this TV supports AirPlay 2, so you can mirror or "cast" videos and photos from your iPhone directly to this TV. Previously, this could only be done if you owned an Apple TV box, but this is something new that Apple's partners are offering.
Sometimes while using the built-in apps, I have found the TV to get laggy and takes awhile to "catch up" with key presses. Usually power cycling the TV helps... I have not resorted to pulling the plug from the outlet yet, but that's my backup plan. Hopefully this can be addressed in a future firmware update. If you are using a streaming box like Apple TV or a Roku and simply just using the TV to switch inputs, this probably won't affect you.
Overall, I found the picture quality to be great on this set and appreciate the built-in cord cutting features such as the free Samsung TV Plus. Built-in apps can be a little buggy, but hopefully this improves over time with future firmware updates.Apr 13, 2020 18:11
I replaced my old LG 65inch because it color got washed out and dark after 4 years with this one. Wow! This one is great, it inexpensive, easy to connect via airplay with my old MacBook 15, sound better than my old tv, more responsive, and smarter too. I curbside pick the TV into my truck, push the TV from drive way into the living room, unboxed and attached the stand, download the SmartThings app, and enjoy. I did all by myself because it light. I would recommend this TV.Jan 19, 2021 04:58
I purchased this TV UN65TUu7000FXZA a week ago online and picked it up at my local store and even though it was curbside delivery I was very pleased with the experience and the worker was very helpful in helping me load it since I recently had back surgery done. I left it on for about 3 days before I even thought about adjusting any of the picture settings to give it a proper burn-in time. Straight out of the box this thing is huge and I had to tie it down in my sister's SUV because it was actually too large to fit with the rear door shut. I got it home and followed the unboxing video that Best Buy has on their site for help unboxing it and the video was very accurate, I love the little sponge things on each side of the screen that helps with not getting fingerprints on the screen as well as protecting it from damage. I tried to download the Smart Things app but couldn't get it to work so I just used the on-screen input. I logged into my Wi-Fi no problem and since I already had my antenna hooked up it automatically found all the stations it could, although I'll be adding a second antenna since it didn't pick up a few of my local stations with this particular antenna, and then I went through and finished the registration on-screen without a hitch. I like that Samsung added a lot of extra free channels all in a neat and organized way to find pretty much any kind of program ..you wanna watch although the extra channels are not A-list channels they do offer a great variety to watch. This thing is super clear even before I adjusted it for my Xbox One S, I did however have to turn game mode off for my games because it had a lag from what was actually happening to what I seen on the screen I was getting killed a lot on my games, but I think this is more my Xbox's fault than it is the TV Since I don't have the higher powered Xbox One X. The built in apps are great I've only used Netflix so far but it's very responsive although I did find if you leave the TV on for more than a day and it goes into screensaver mode when you start watching Netflix again there is a definite lag on the voice and picture sync, the easy fix to this is just turn off the TV for a few minutes then turn it back on and voila it's perfect again. The remote is not too bad although if you have large hands like me you might have problems with some of the smaller buttons like I've had. Also there is a small lag from when you hit a button and the TV responding to that command I ran into it while I was setting the TV up initially but I've gotten used to it now and it's not that noticeable. You will definitely need a friend to help you get this out of the box and on a flat surface to either attach the standard legs or to put brackets on it for a TV stand like I have. It's not very heavy but it is a little cumbersome to do by yourself and trust me you don't wanna hurt your back trying to be he-man even though it's not very heavy. Overall 5 stars, I had a 50inch Vizio that I upgraded from and this thing blows my old one out of the water hands down without a doubt. The controls for adjusting the picture is nicely organized and it has an abundance of settings to choose from. I would highly recommend this TV to friends and family alike especially for the price. I could have gotten an 2018 model for about 150 dollars cheaper somewhere else but I figured if I'm buying new go ahead and get a 2020 model instead I'm glad I listened to my instincts and got this one. Oh and I have a 1200 watt Kenwood surround sound system and I'm not even using it because the TV speakers even though they're only 20watts will blow your socks off on how clear and precise everything sounds I just wish I could hook my subwoofer up just for a little more bass.May 05, 2020 03:49
GREAT DELIVERY SERVICE ON TIME!!!! I REALLY LIKE THIS TV ALTHOUGH I WAS TRYING TO GET THIS TV TO BE MUCH SHARPER IN PICTURE BUT I DID MY BEST USING THE SETTINGS BUT THIS IS ONE THING I DO KNOW MY OLD TV WHICH IS A SAMSUNG 42' TV SHOW A MUCH CRISP AND SHARP PICTURE THAT LOOK'S EXCELLENT THAT I LOVE SO MUCH ALTHOUGH IT ISN'T A SMART TV BUT FOR SOME REASON I AM NOT UNDERSTANDING WHY THIS HUGE 65 INCH NOT SHOWING A MUCH BETTER PICTURE THAN MY OLD 42' SAMSUNG I GUESS I GOT TO GET USE TO IT MAYBE I DON'T KNOW MAYBE THAT'S ITOct 06, 2021 19:24
I bought this 65 inch 7 series Samsung back in March of this year(2021) and I’m still pleased with my purchase. The picture is beautiful, and looks great regardless if I’m watching Netflix, Hulu, music videos on YouTube or whatever. I paired it with a sound bar, and I couldn’t be happier.Sep 04, 2021 06:56
This was my first TV purchase in 20 years and my first Smart TV purchase. I'm subscribed to quite a few streaming services and I figured given the low cost, and all that I could access without cable, it would be a worthwhile purchase.
The TV has a sleek profile and is light. I'm not too happy with the legs. I had two other people try to push them in further, and they won't go (see the pic). I REALLY don't like the remote -- it's not very ergonomic and doesn't have voice command. It's really dreadful to use. And I find that the software/processor lags. It took 2 installs of the Disney+ app to get it to work. Sometimes Amazon Prime video just stops playing. Setting up the TV was just painful; because every app needs to go in and set your login information. But I guess that is to be expected.
The picture quality is great. TV speaker sound is ok, but for movies or sports, you definitely want a soundbar. I had one that was 5 years old, never used, and I hooked it up to the TV via Bluetooth. Works great. I do have to re-pair the soundbar every time I turn the TV on though.
Overall I'm satisfied enough with the TV. As far as how it operates, I put it in the 'average' category. But you get a lot of TV for less than $500 here so that definitely counts for something.May 23, 2020 13:08
I absolutely love my Samsung TV. It was a very user friendly setup and the quality of this TV is more than I expected! It really brings movies and shows to life with the size of the picture, sound and visual display. I really am glad that I switched to Samsung and I highly recommend Samsung TV’s for anyone who is in the market to buy.Nov 05, 2021 16:54
great size tv for the price, this will be the 3rd Samsung tv I owned, I still have my mid range Samsung 55” KS8000 to this budget rage 65” TU7000, you prob ask why compare a budget rage to mid range tv, well the KS8000 is from 2018 and TU7000 is the 2020 version, so my guess is that after these year technology should caught up by now.
first about the 65TU7000 the design of the tv I thought was beautiful the bezel of the monitor was fairly thin, it’s simple setup all you need to add are the two legs that you attached under the tv. the tv also been fully updated to the latest firmware 1082, fully tested on using different applications, and playing video games for hours. now let’s see what my Pros and Con for this tv.
- easy installation is what I like about samsung tv for the past few years now
- have the ability to setup your tv using your phone, by download loading samsung app
- Operating System (OS) looks beautiful and clean
- fairly slim design tv with color with a hint of black and grey.
- the tv have the ability to recognize which console is being plug in hdmi (even gives the screen a logo of the console on OS)
- input lag on this tv is very low. so it feels quick and snappy, a lot lower than LG tvs.
- automaticity switching the tv on game mode when console is plugged in
- samsung finally have apply air-play where you can connect your apple device to watch it on big screen, if you own an apple device this feature is such a huge plus! considering you won’t need to buy apple tv.
- while the design of tv is fine, I was thrown off of how the color of the feet of the tv was way off from the main body, it came with light grey colored plastic feet, and it just look weird after the installation
- the OS of the tv was still slow even after the latest firmware was installed
- 2 hdmi input was a big let down it’s kinda hard to decide which one to plug since most people have more than 2 hdmi devices in their homes.
- about apple air-play the application also then to lag when you transfer a video from your phone to watch on apple air-play the video will eventually stutter and that was bothering me and had to stop the movie using air-play
- not knowing if HDR is on was kinda hard for me to like this tv, the tv also just doesn’t give me that vibrant color I would hope for during HDR mode, made me question if HDR was even activated until I saw on picture setting that is indeed on HDR
- picture quality I thought was ok, seems to be on the softer side, colors like was mentioned above wasn’t as vibrant as I would hope, the black level was also weak, this will show when you watch movies with black bars on them, the black bar doesn’t look black at all.
was hoping for more advance setting for the picture quality but i’m glad that I didn’t not see any cinema effects section during the settings. was hoping that these 2020 tv would be better that would have better technology, I was planning on replacing my samsung KS8000 in the bedroom to this, but after spending time on this my 3 year old KS8000 pictures quality still beats this tv, it might not have the latest features that this TU7000 have but the OS
of my 3 year old tv is way faster than this 2020 model, the KS8000 also have much better black level, TU7000 back lighting is not that great, I think this 65” TU7000 is a great tv for those people that doesn’t care or pay attention to things that I listed but only cares about having the 65” size in their house.
gaming on this tv is prob the only plus for me, it runs great you can feel the low input lag helps , but even gaming with HDR wasn’t great at all, colors just wasn’t poppin as I would hope. run as good as my 55”KS8000, overall I think for the price and feature it has is still worth the purchase, but i’d only recommend this tv to those that doesn’t care about little features it might have, for this people that colors matters then i’d recommend adding extra 100+ to get a better samsung tv.Apr 13, 2020 13:46
Step up to the world of Crystal UHD from Samsung. Elevated color and clarity offer you a picture that has to be seen to be believed. Add in smart features that make watching TV even easier, and you have a TV that is essential.
Easy To use, great remote with Voice Control - HDR performance met expectation. If you are looking for a non-OLED/QLED tv, this is the one for you!Jun 25, 2021 18:20
Me and my wife love this 75" TV goes good with my PS5 voice control is awesome I had to buy a 65" for the mancave this TV is awesomeOct 22, 2021 15:25
Amazing clarity, incredibly thin and light, purchase was easy. If I needed another, I would get this one.Oct 29, 2021 16:27
Like it a lot! Still learning a lot about using it!
Can be confusing! Need a tech to show me!

But I guess once I bought Tv & all!
Didn’t care about showing me how to use tv!Oct 22, 2021 17:21
My new Samsung TV looks great feels good to watch movies on a 65 inch screen almost feels like you’re in a theater.Jul 30, 2021 17:13
The picture is great, I love the size. It is perfect.Oct 29, 2021 17:45
Love the quality of this tv. Super amazing I also love how thin it is really pops out on our wall. Perfect touch to our homeAug 22, 2021 20:01
Good value for the price. Picture pixelates a lot during fast motion and could be brighter for my taste but serves its purpose, it also has a lot more glare Han my old tv. You get what you pay for.Jun 23, 2021 13:41

We've only had this tv for about 4 weeks and so far we love it. Beautiful picture and easy to navigate the app menu. One feature I really like is the one piece center stand. We also bought the sonos arc sound bar and it fits perfectly under the tv.Nov 07, 2020 16:51
Absolutely amazing TV. Stunning picture quality, great brightness, and a solid OS (Tizan). Also, ambient mode also keeps it from looking like a monolith in the living room. Finally if all that's not enough, our cat loves it too!Jun 25, 2021 21:50
This t.v. Is absolutely amazing. Picture is very sharp, I also have a 2019 Q60 Samsung sound bar hooked up. If you are looking for a new tv I would highly recommend this one. P.s. you will definitely want 2 people to help you set it up tv with stand is very heavyNov 28, 2020 03:01
Great set. I have an older 4k UHD 65” Samsung downstairs. This 8K system is brighter and sharper. The menu has many more features and more responsive than the older unit.Feb 19, 2021 16:48
Longtime Samsung product buyer. Great picture and vibrant colors. Upgraded from 4K to 8K and I didn’t expect to see that big a difference between the two, but it is very clear. The images that are not even 4K pop more than they ever have even with the 4K tv. Black are as black as any other tv on the market. Did notice the lines that people complained about, but only because of the reviews I was looking for them. Not the distraction to me when watching tv or gaming that others have stated it being. Maybe it’s just me. Either way, I’m happy with my purchase for now.Oct 21, 2020 15:45
This 65" Samsung Q800T is a great product. It has all the newest features and I have added my favorite apps. The picture and sound quality are excellent and the processor is second to none. I also added the Q850T sound bar and a Sony UltraHD Blu-ray player. I am very pleased with all three!Apr 09, 2021 16:02
Excellent tv best 8k Qled best best best best best best best best best.Dec 26, 2020 09:48
This is the most expensive thing I have ever bought. And worth every penny! This is my first 8K TV. The picture is outstanding, the sound is outstanding, brand is superb! The experience was a blast getting her in here, the moving of these things was a blast. And now I just need to use them. There is no wrong way to eat a reese's. But for whatever my needs are I know Samsung will fulfill it. This sucker will be my screen for the next generation systems when they come out later, hopefully this year (With the pandemic and all).
Hopefully I am able to shake some stuff to the core with this one. Wish me luck!May 04, 2020 02:05
