Just about every single TV, even the cheapest $200 TV, will have HDR enabled software. The MU8000 would provide a far better HDR experience than this SJ8500 as well. It is a true 10 bit panel (unlike this TV), it has 4 times the contrast ratio, it has about double the HDR brightness, and it has better uniformity. The MU8000 outperforms this TV is just about every single possible way and it can be purchased for less money.

This not a really good deal. It would be a stretch to even call this a mediocre deal.

PS The TCL you refuse to buy is also a better TV and cheaper than this.

If you do not even realize basic information like, the MU8000 has HDR, you would be the one here without any credibility. (Also your belief that a mediocre TV for $650 is a price mistake, further proves you have no credibility in this department)

FYI, yes the SJ8500 is very low nit, low contrast ratio, 8bit panel. Here are the panel specs since you clearly do no know how to look them up yourself. It is not 10bit, like the MU8000 is.

If you want to see HDR performance information on the MU8000, you can view it here

You could also just go to samsung.com and see for yourself. You questioning if the MU8000 has HDR, means you do not know what HDR is or how it is implemented on TVs.

I am not sure why you are defending this TV, but it sucks and is not a good deal.

Not a price mistake. Just an average quality TV at average price. It has been selling for $700-800 since August of last year. It has been in the $650 range several previous deals. Being that it is now May of 2018 and retails are trying to dump 2017 stock, this price is not surprising.

The most surprising part of this deal is that it is still being listed for $650. You can get better TVs (Samsung MU8000, TCL P607, TCL 6) for less. You can get significantly better TVs (Sony X900E, Vizio P) for similar price if you get lucky and wait for a better deal.

I recently got this tv from Buydig. If you're not a professional calibrator, producer, etc. don't listen to the reviews. It's more than capable for the average viewer. HDR content looks amazing, the picture is bright & vivid, and the sound from the speakers are decent unlike a lot of other TVs. OS on the tv is also amazing. The remote is so useful if you never experienced a smart media remote before. Voice recognition for the remote is very good.

Is that a price mistake? list price of 1999?

I didn't know you could get an HDR tv for so cheap.

From what I can tell that Samsung does not have HDR (I also can't find it in stock except on Amazon 3rd party for $999), I won't buy a TCL. That Sony is also $999. No idea about the Vizio....

This is a really good deal though.

I picked up the TCL 6-Series and it has excellent blacks, I would suggest that TV as a serious alternative, unless you have a bright room and like the LG experience.

And that's where you lose your credibility. I think you're mistaking this with another LG Panel but this is a 10-bit panel. The MU8000 makes zero mention of HDR so it probably... doesn't have HDR.

The TCL 6 series has more than double the brightness of the LG SJ8500 and would perform much better in a bright room.

How well does it hang flush to the wall? I want to mount it with an ultra slim mount and want to know if that will work? I ask, as the TV seems ultra thin and then thicker at the bottom. Are the screw holes in the thicker part, I assume?
