UN55TU8300 from Samsung – The screen

The Samsung has a correct and well-calibrated image quality, but you have to do with a limited native contrast that is suitable for daytime viewing; forget about home theater programs in the dark.

With regard to the display, the company proposes a Ultra HD 4K resolution. Whatever the characteristics, it is still a beautiful screen. On this point, don’t worry.
Samsung chooses a frequency of 50 Hz, we’re looking at a high-end TV. Perfect image and exceptional synchronization in game or movie mode.
