Launched in the year 2022, the UN65BU8000 is a 65" 4K TV from Samsung. It comes with a 10-bit VA, IPS-ADS panel. It can display a max resolution of 3840 x 2160 with a refresh rate of 60 Hz and pixel density of 68 ppi.

Picture Quality

After screen size and resolution, the very next specification of a display that defines picture quality is its Color Gamut.

This TV doesn't come with a color gamut specification, so we have to take a guess.

Now, since the TV features amassive 65 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! It will produce color accurate images.

What Color Gamut means ?

Color gamut specification of a display is a measure of the range of colors that it can show.

A display with poor color reproduction will produce undersaturated colors that will spoil the immersion.

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

But don't worry, below is a chart that will help you choosing a TV with good color accuracy.

Color Gamut Chart

After color gamut, the static contrast of a TV also impacts its picture quality.

Why its important?

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 will look dusty as shown below.

Example of a display with low contrast ratio

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

Also, static contrast ratio and resolution go hand in hand when it comes to details. To put it into perspective, a TV with low contrast ratio will show both dark gray and black as black, so lesser detail overall.

If given a choice, always prefer a FHD TV with high contrast ratio over a 4K TV with low contrast ratio.

This TV is rated with a static contrast ratio of 8000:1., enough to achieve deep blacks and eye-catching visuals. For the record, it also comes with local dimming backlight technology which is a plus.

HDR is also supported on this TV in form of HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma), HDR10+, HDR and HDR10.

Coming to brightness, it is capable of producing a peak luminance of 250 nits, powered by Edge LED backlight.

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 gaming or use it as a PC monitor, make sure to take a TV with the lowest input lag and response time.

The input lag on the Samsung UN65BU8000 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 ?

This lag is the latency at which key-presses or mouse movements changes the content of your TV. Though, this won't matter much if you aren't into competitive/FPS games like call of duty.

For best of both worlds, get a TV that has an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.
