    Great price.

  •  

    Are the 10% off ebay gift cards available from anywhere at the moment?

    Great deal. Got the NU8000 for $1439 last month and love it

    From memory, this 2019 model

    Audio has been downgraded from 2.1CH(40W) on the NU8000 to 2CH(20W)
    Wifi has also been downgraded from 2.4GHz/5GHz (802.11ac) to 2.4Ghz (802.11n)

    Not sure about picture quality but I'd guess its similar, any thoughts on the tv?
    Kicking myself for missing out on the NU8000

      Can’t speak for the audio as I’ve got a sonos plugged into it but the RU8000 I’ve got definitely has 5ghz capability.

      This or LG OLED?

      • +3 votes

        That's not a fair comparison. The LG OLED is the companies flagship models whereas these are Samsung's mid tier LED.

          Cool, thanks

          •  

            @stockastics: If your looking for premium models compare the LG OLED with the Samsung QLED. I know most people on here are bias towards the OLED but the new Samsung q90r looks beautiful in store and the blacks are phenomenal for an LED.

            •  

              @F-22: No HDMI 2.1 tho.

              •  

                @serpserpserp: No that's correct but as far as I'm aware 2.0b will still allow you to run everything the TV can output. The main advantages of 2.1 are 4k @120hz (not sure that the TV can do 120hz anyway) and 8k which since it's a 4k TV is redundant. There is eARC too but not sure if the TV can benefit from it. There may be other advantages that I'm not aware of.

                •  

                  @F-22: Reading a little further about the q90r and lack of 2.1, there are reports that the Hdmi 4 port on the TV has a subset of the hdmi 2.1 features including 4k @ 120hz limited to 4:2:0 chroma. The limited chroma sample may affect gaming but not movies. There's also speculation that eARC may be pushed out via software update.

      That interesting. With 2.4ghz wifi it’s probably going to struggle with 4K content.

      • +1 vote

        Thats not really the main disadvantage of 2.4ghz. The main advantage of using 5ghz is all the additional channels available to work with. 2.4ghz only has 3 non overlapping channels, using the same channel or overlapping channel as a neighbouring ap will impact performance. This is mostly important in dense environments such as corporate environments that have multiple APs or are I a building with many other networks. If you live in the suburbs 2.4 isn't that bad provding your neighbours aren't using the same channel or overlapping channel. 802.11g or n would be more than adequate to stream 4k. Yes the newer standards have theoretically faster speeds, however, these are only possible if you sit very close to thr AP.

          Having said that though it's pretty much inexcusable for manufacturers to not add support for 5ghz these days.

        • +1 vote

          I find in real world applications that while the 2.4ghz wifi works at a greater distance, the 5ghz wifi has a higher bandwidth until it doesn’t work anymore. I can run a video at 4K on my 5ghz network at the back of my house, but on my 2.4ghz it won’t run 4K at that distance.

          •  

            @Burnertoasty: It's certainly true that the 5ghz frequency can reach higher bandwidth due to bonding 20mhz channels together but i would have thought that you should still have enough bandwidth with 20Mhz channel to stream 4k. Perhaps you have someone using the same 2.4Ghz channel nearby?

            How far is it from your AP?

            •  

              @F-22: 2.4ghz works fine for 4k in the same room, but go a room away and 4K is better on 5ghz. But inversely the range drops off of the 5ghz very quickly.

              •  

                @Burnertoasty: Ok yes, distance is going to be a factor with wireless, the further away the lower the modulation it will have to use and in turn the lower the bandwidth.

      For picture quality, the RU8000 -

      • "Isn't particularly bright as an LED-backlit LCD, showing a peak of 366.1cd/m2 in the Movie picture mode with the backlight pushed to maximum, significantly lower than last year's NU8000 (554.41cd/m2)."
      • "It shows very good contrast with a 0.04cd/m2 black level in the same mode for a 9,153:1 contrast ratio, an overall improvement from the NU8000 (6,160:1) due to the previous model's disappointing 0.09cd/m2 black level."
      • "Nearly every color, including white, is spot-on, with only green running a bit undersaturated. This is a very balanced, accurate picture without calibration."

      Although - "You can bump that contrast up to 14,687:1 in Dynamic picture mode, which pushes peak brightness up to 440.61cd/m2 and black level down to 0.03cd/m2" at the expense of color accuracy.

    •  

      so NU8000 is better?

  •  

    Bought myself an NU8000 (the 2018 equivalent) in one of the recent deals and I'm in love with it. If this is an upgrade on that, then it's a steal at this price. Not sure the differences between the models though, so hopefully it's not a downgrade as OCD Completionist is suggesting.

    How about a 75"?

  •  

    Have a Hisense 65" p8 is this an upgrade, equivalent or downgrade

    •  

      Probably in the same class

      Here is a comparison of the P8/Hisense H9E Plus vs the NU8000. Hisense H9E is the overseas equivalent to the P8

      •  

        Nice comparison, thanks. How similar are the HiSense across markets? (E.g. TCL gimp their TVs for Aus) Samsung has HiSense beat in almost all areas, no Dolby Vision but HDR10+

        • +1 vote

          Similar across markets, major difference is the Operating System, they had to change it for certain markets can't remember the reason why though, been a while since I read about it.

    • +1 vote

      I would say the P8 should be better on the PQ side and higher NITS over this Samsung? (Not the NU8000)

    •  

      also worth noting samsung has 12 months warranty vs hisense with 36 months. consumer rights is all good, but still more of a battle than a warranty

    Good deal on UA65RU8000WXXY, I love my UA65RU8000WXXYYZZ

    Waiting for 75"

    My Nu8000 has been retired to the back rumpus room as I have replaced it with the far superior Hisense 3 yr warranty 65PX 200hz motion Oled that is available for around $2100. It is a stunning LG panel the thickness of a $2 dollar coin. Led can never get anywhere near the blacks and whites of Oled and before anyone retorts with that they are not bright enough … well, the numerous settings allowing dynamic brightness makes this TV far better than the Samsung NU/RU for sure. Also the NU/RU are on the same level as the Q6 Qleds which I feel are the Qleds for people who wish to say "I have a Qled" but can't really afford a true quality Qled like the Q9. IMO, go for the TCL x4 on sale now …they are a steal… or spend a bit more and take the plunge into the Oled pool !
    PS the great prices on Hisense ULed 65p7 should also woo the cost conscious …. and not to mention the 3 year warranty !
    PPS if you can get a Panasonic Oled 65 cheap as I have seen recently on Ebay, then go for it also !!

    •  

      What is the peak brightness on these things? How is the upscaling of 720/1080p content and is the reflectiveness of the panel really that bad? Does it have any input lag on gaming at 4k or 1080p (ie. the Nintendo Switch)?

    •  

      A TV costing over 30% more is better than the Samsung ru8000????

      No way…. We landed on the moon!

  •  

    So this TV be good enough for AFL? upgrading from about a 6 year old average plasma

    •  

      Should be since it has great motion handling

    Is this tv suitable for three back rumpus rooms?

    • +1 vote

      Judging by the comments, yes, clearly. Now we really need to know is whether it is suitable for 4 or more back rumpus rooms.
