ABOUT THIS TV

Samsung UE75BU8500 400x400 Image Samsung UE75BU8500

The UE75BU8500 is a 75 inch 4K TV from Samsung, launched in the year 2022. It comes with a 10-bit VA, IPS-ADS panel. It can display a max resolution of 3840 x 2160 @ 60 Hz with a pixel density of 59 ppi.

Picture Quality

After screen size and resolution, the next important spec of a display that impacts picture quality is Color Gamut.

Samsung has not provided a color gamut rating for this TV. But don't worry, we have other means to guess that. Now, since the TV features amassive 75 inch screen, it won't come with a cheap panel, so here we can assume its equivalent sRGB coverage to be 90-100% or above. Undoubtedly The color accuracy on this TV should be Lifelike! Meaning it is capable of producing color accurate images AS IT IS intended.

What Color Gamut means ?

Color gamut spec of a display is a measure of the range of colors that the TV can show.

What this means is, this specification tells the ability of a display to produce accurate colors. A TV with low gamut coverage will miss out on some colors (such as deep red), the result would be a "washed out" picture quality.

It is specified in different units - sRGB(most popular), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 etc. It is upto the manufacturer which one they choose.

But don't worry, below is a chart that you can use to choose a TV with good color accuracy.

Color Gamut Chart

Other than color accuracy, the static contrast of a TV also impacts its picture quality.

Understanding Static Contrast

A TV with high enough static contrast ratio will produce natural deep blacks while a TV with low contrast ratio (<1000:1) will produce images that may look dusty as shown in below image.

Example of a display with low contrast ratio

As you can imagine, this will rob your experience considerably.

Also, a TV with high constrast ratio allows you to see more details. So, resolution and static contrast ratio go hand in hand in a sense.

This TV features a static contrast ratio of 8000:1., good enough to achieve deep blacks and eye-catching visuals. The panel comes with local dimming backlight technology which is a plus.

HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma), HDR10+, HDR and HDR10 are also supported on this TV, so that's a plus.

Coming to brightness, the peak luminance the TV can achieve is 250 nits. The backlight used on the panel is Edge LED.

Gaming Performance

If you are planning to use your TV only for content consumption, you can safely ignore these specifications. But if you are also going to use the TV for playing games or use it as a PC monitor, you would want to get a TV that features the lowest input lag and response time.

The input lag on this TV is 8 ms and its minimum response time is N/A. You will love this TV if you are a gamer.

What is Input Lag and Why it matters ?

This lag is the amount of time at which key-presses/mouse movements changes the content of the TV. For casual Non-FPS games, input lag doesn't matter much.

For best of both worlds, look for a TV that comes with an input lag and response time of < 20ms.

Ergonomics and Dimensions

Now, coming to ergonomics — a VESA mount with interface size of 400 x 400 mm is provided for wall-mounting. However, there is no Swivel, Tilt or Pivot feature support on this TV.

Vertically, the TV measures 75 inches and horizontally 66 inches.

It is 1 inches thick. It weighs 31.4 kilograms, another 1.1 kgs if you include stand.

Hardware and Audio

The chipset of this TV is powered by Quad Core CPU. However, we could'nt find any specification on the RAM on the TV's specsheet.

The Operating System on this TV is Tizen 6.5.

For display connectivity, Samsung has provided three HDMI 2.0 ports on this TV.

For connecting USB devices, you will have two USB 2.0 ports. Other connectivity ports include — 1x Satellite In (F-type female), 1x Antenna (RF) (female), 1x CI+ 1.4 and 1x Ethernet RJ45.

Wireless connectivity options on this TV include Wi-Fi (5Ghz + 2.5Ghz), Wifi-Direct, Bluetooth and DLNA.

Now, speaking of speakers, it is packaged with 2 x 10W speakers.

Speaking of power usage, on average, this TV consumes about 156 Watts. On standby, it takes 0.5 Watts.

Both 110V and 220V outlets are supported on this unit.
