OK I know it's Sunday and we're all chillin today while enjoying our beloved TVs with the 2018 Olympics tuned in. I'll add some more to spike the thread.

Here's just a few of the changes Samsung incorporated into the successor to the very popular 2017 MU8000 series TV.

2018 upgrades and enhancements:

- New dimming scheme called "Supreme UHD Dimming"

- Color decoding method Samsung dubbed "Dynamic Crystal Color"

- 2018 video processing "UHD Remastering Engine"

- Tizen now includes Bixby Voice Control

- Additional audio decoding CODEX' and dual subs built-in

Footnote:, once they launch and the peak luminance and other attributes are tested and measured we'll know more about possible upgrades for the NU8000 UHD TV series.

Changed items:

- The new table top pedestal stand is now T-Type, with a neck that feeds into the the back side where it forms a "T" shape that support the TV from a single point vs. the 2017 MU8000 independent A-shape forked feet that are placed near the l/r edges of the display

Dropped items:

- Say good-bye to the "One Connect box", this year Samsung engineers located all inputs/outputs and power connection on the back and side of the 2018 NU8000.

- One less USB port, two USB ports this year

- No more DIRECTV RVU tuner built-in

- "Smart View" was dropped

Samsung just announced the 82" NU8000 series and I've updated out site to include the UN82NU8000.

Along with today's announcement Samsung also added three more 2018 TV series, the NU7100 and two curved series, NU7300 and NU8500.

That's a nice price on a great 65" set.

I'm loving my 65" LG OLED

I have been a Samsung person for the past 2 tvs but still find it hard to buy one today if I want the 4K upgrade. There has got to be a DV solution somewhere. If Samsung does the HDR Plus technology then say a player, say Oppo, takes the DV signal and translates it to HDR Plus, that would be acceptable. This way, Samsung still does not have to pay the DV licensing fee and Oppo, who already does would simply translate it.

Great idea, but sorry to say it's not likely to happen. Hope you will make the trip to NY to participate in our 2018 TV Shootout evaluation event.

The Samsung NU8000 (2018) comes with a pedestal stand that makes it look more practical, based on your setup. The picture quality excels in the mid-to-high range and is excellent when it comes to gaming. It comes with FreeSync support and auto-detects PS4 and Xbox consoles—automatically turning on game mode with lower lag time. The TV has an ultra-thin array that helps bring out better contrast between the black and the whites. The smart TV also comes with Bixby voice. You can also for a Samsung QLED TV, one of the newer series that offers some amazing features.
