At first, both Jet email and online tracking information was not complete but their Help Desk provided the rest within an hour of my inquiry. The Fedex delivery was first rate and the TV is superb (4.5/5 stars). Overall, the Jet transaction was very smooth. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Love the TV!
Walmart shipping to the store for pickup....not so much! Picture-wise this TV exceeded my expectations! I was most surprised by the great sound quality! While it does have all the basics of a good Smart TV (apps, wifi, etc.) it has fewer features than a similar model bought 2 years ago. I use the music apps or satellite provider's music channels and on my older TV I can turn the picture off while it's playing. This one doesn't do that....but you can connect Bluetooth speakers or headsets to it! Just a word about Walmart....if you live in the sticks and need the item shipped to the store you shouldn't be in a hurry....or expect anyone to give you accurate information about when your order will arrive. Their tracking systems suck.
Colors are vibrant, and picture is clear. You can actually see blemishes on people's faces. Easy to view from all angles. A little difficult to operate since there are so many features but worth the effort. You feel you're at the movies. Not too difficult to set up, instructions are clear. And you can call for support with any questions. Shopped around compared other brands. Settled in Samsung because of crystal clear picture and reliability. I have another Samsung which I also love. Worth the extra month to go with quality. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
An incredible HD experience
Outstanding UHD TV! I bought the curved 65" MU8500 about a month ago. I am thrilled with the vibrant 4K experience. I have a 2007 Toshiba LCD flat screen and the Samsung blows it away! It's a little pricey, but well worth the experience. The sound from the set is pretty good, actually, but I recommend getting a nice sound system to go with this. I got the Bose soundbar and bass unit and it sounds amazing. Would I recommend this Samsung MU8500 tv to a friend? Absolutely!
TV delivers great, clear picture with numerous apps. Easy to use and the connection hub is great at minimizing all of the cords that go to the tv. TV is also very quick to turn on and boot-up. I bought the curve version, but really can't tell the difference between curve and non-curve, but very clear picture. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Too Soon To Rate the TV
Less than a month so far so Good. Too early to comment for the Performance but for physical quality there's a something to improve. It has a NOT Very attractive legs (stand) for the TV. Cheaper TV one has a better looking stand. I wish I can replace it . [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Excluding the frustration from the tv not supporting 1080p but everything 4k I connect to hdmi 2.2 has screen flickering issues.
Every thing with the tv works fine except for the one connect hdmi. I had to have a new one sent and it's very frustrating. I just bought the new Xbox one x and when conneted to the one connect box the tv flickers and then goes to black screen for 5 seconds then returns to picture.i will see if the new one context box makes any difference and update my review upon arrival.
As a Samsung fan I was supremely disappointed with this TV.
The accessibility is so limited. Chief complaint is that small features are made difficult to access: namely "game mode" taking 15 clicks of the remote to turn on or off. It would be so simple to make features and shortcuts more easily available but they're not. Accidentally log into your Samsung account on the TV and your bombarded with "editors choice" and you other unwanted "smart" features that you cannot log off to get rid of.
Lastly, and probably most pertinently for a TV: the pictures settings look terrible. Honestly game mode (raw unfiltered visuals) look much better than any default or tinkered graphics overlays that the TV offers. (I just use them at night to filter out blue light, but the edges look shoddy).
