The mu6500 is identical to the mu6400 in technical ability, but features that centre-piece-worthy curve, and is truly one of the best and most capable tvs in the price range. The mu6500 brings some of samsung’s previous flagship models’ (ks9500) capabilities and features, but at an extremely competitive price. Pros – crisp, clean image, even from a non-4k input- good colour palette and represenation- sleek, sturdy design- easy to use os/software – low input lag in game mode, even in hdr (~20ms)cons – hdr performance won’t blow you away like higher models can (peak brightness of 370 nits)- as with all led lcds, blacks aren’t perfectly uniform, can be a little grey (if this is a priority, see oled tvs)-significant price difference between 6400 and 6500 simply due to the’ curve’ is questionablethe mu6500 features uhd upscaling software, which does an impressive job of taking a non-4k signal, and working its algorithmic magic to make the image shaper, cleaner and overall more satisfying. The panel itself is a va panel, meaning richer, better contrast and black levels (only noticeably beaten by the much pricier oled panels), but has slightly limited viewing angles compared to ips panels (va panels are perfectly fine for a small-medium room/sitting close to the centre of the tv, roughly within a 60° cone, and excel in lower light conditions). The mu6500 comes with samsung’s ‘one remote control’, which is one of the smartest, simplest tv remotes currently used (2017/2018). It’s compact, but not too small, can control a multitude of attached devices (so no need for 5 different remotes for different inputs/sources), and the layout of the buttons just feels ‘right’ – when you’re not using the voice controls that is. Connections can be found on the rear of the tv:3 hdmi sockets (all 4k/60hz/hdr compatible)2 usb portsethernet input & wi-fidigital optical outcomposite/component connectionstldr; within this price bracket, you’ll struggle to find a tv with better performance and features than the samsung ue5mu6500, other than the non-curved sibling, the mu6400.
Great picture and sound ,easy set up especially if you also have a samsung phone.
This telly randomly turns off for 10 seconds every now and again. Nice quality screen, not gone on the ui but for gaming this has been a good telly.
Recently purchased this tv from another site but thought i would leave a review as i had read through all the reviews on here before purchasing. The image quality is superb as to be expected. I have messed with all the settings and they’re pretty easy to follow and get the picture you want. Works great with netflix 4k hdr over cabled connection. For gaming this tv allows 4k @ 60hz which is great and the same for 1080. Initially i could not get 1440 above 30hz but after changing some settings the tv now displays 1440 @ 60hz too, which is ideal for games that are more taxing. The motion rate is also fantastic and there’s next to no judder on fast pans which is something i have found with other tvs. Overall fantastic and a steal at its current low price. Hope someone finds this useful.
Features of Samsung UE55MU6500UXXU 55-Inch Smart UHD Curved TV – Silver
I like to watch netflix and you tube on this but also ordinary tv well worth the money.
Love how easy it is to use this tv in particular with a laptop, it detects and has a knowledge of history pre shutdown.
Great tv works well with ps4 pro, easy to set up and integrate with everything. Only use it online, not with aerial link, so don’t know how good the receiver actually is.

Very good to install, and easy to put up on wall, only took me 30mins, xbox x is so cool in 4k and in dvr, also really good piece.
I have given this tv 5 stars because its a bargain and excellent value for money. The first one delivered was in a very battered box and the screen was damaged so had to be returned. We then had to order and pay for a second while we wait for our refund . When that turned up the box was in not a lot better condition. But to our surprise the tv works fine. . Once you have spent far to much time registering with samsung, opening an account so you can use the smart bits, giving them all your personal details so they can probably bombard you with other adverts. The tv is excellent value for money. . The menus are easy to use (not like some other gadgets we own) and once you have registered the tv connected to the wifi and the sky box extremely quickly. . I have one criticism its the whites are very bright. When watching in a darkened room and you go in to the menu any panel the has a white background is dazzling. This might be able to change but i havnt found anything yet.

Ordered – friday 15:00delivered – saturday 9:30mu6500 – one of the best gaming tvs for 2017.
I must confess, i have no previous experience with large hd or uhd screen and therefore i might be a little biased. Arrived the next day, easy to set up, looks gorgeous. Youtube has never looked so good.
HDR and UHD capable
Looks good was easy enough to set up once i got the smart control unit open to insert the batteries, as it was rather stiff and awkward to get the cover off.
The first thing to say is that this tv has a va panel, which means better contrast and more faithful reproduction of dark colours. It’s noticeably different to ips panels, which you usually find in lg tvs. If you watch a lot of tv in low lighting conditions then va is the way to go. The downside is you get narrower viewer angles, but since this is a curved set it’s good for focusing on a single viewing position like a sofa. The curvature of the screen is subtle, but still looks really good. It’s the aesthetic look of it that’s won me over. The other thing to mention is there’s no headphone (or 3. 5mm audio out) port, which is a strange design decision. I connect my wireless headphones via digital optical cable, so it doesn’t affect me, but for others it might be a deal-breaker. To get around it, you could get a cheap, usb-powered digital optical to analogue audio converter (such as the prozor dac digital spdif toslink to analog stereo audio r/l converter adapter).
The best price around for this tv. Great picture and fabulous clarity.
Very good quality,great picture view and good image quality,i recommend this great tv.
