The $1,000 price drop is probably why the Samsung TV is on Amazon’s list of fastest-selling electronics today.

The set, which was introduced in 2020, comes with the following features:

* Crystal processor 4K;
* Voice remote with Alexa and Bixby;
* 4K HDR (High Dynamic Range), which adds realism and vividness to the 4K picture;
* 4K AI upscaling that promises to make high-def look even better.

What do the critics say about the Samsung 4K TV?

“The TU8000 is a good value TV that offers a decent performance for the money, but can’t shake some of the limitations of its more humble spec list,” writes Tech Radar, which gives it four stars out of five. “Brightness and color saturation take a knock compared with Samsung’s pricier QLEDs, but its detailed picture, fantastic smart TV system and strong upscaling performance still offer plenty to like.”

“The TU8000 is a dependable mid-range TV with a good amount of upside—particularly if you’re a fan of the Samsung brand and can’t imagine yourself investing in any other manufacturer,” states

“Samsung’s 65-Inch TU-8000 Series TV is a great all-around set that supports modern video features and has Amazon’s Alexa built inside,” adds Rolling Stone.

The set has received a 4.7 star rating with consumers at, based on 1,309 reviews.

“So I went to every store I could over last 8 months to view the picture and quality of different brands and models,” writes one ‘verified buyer’ of the TV. “I came to the conclusion that for the most part I liked Samsung models best for picture quality and clarity. I then researched the different Samsung models and chose the 4K UHD 7 series due to price, Picture Quality as well as having Alexa built in. i have been using it for 2 weeks now and we love it. I cant get over how i feel watching shows or movies and the feeling i get, I feel like i am there with them, so real like. My opinion there. Easy to set up, easy to connect, set up took 30 minutes and most done by myself only needed my wife to hang it on my telescopic arm so no reason to be afraid of the 65 inch size. I highly recommend this unit to anyone.”
