In the Beginning
This UN82MU8000 television peaks out with a 84 overall rating which is derived from a secret formula created by us to evaluate televisions objectively. A 82 inch screen and 4K resolution are factors that go into this rating. The features this TV has to offer are 82-inch Screen, Smart TV, Built-in WiFi. This is only just a limited set of course. Check the specs page for all of them. Every single person has different needs and desires as far as the hardware specs of a television. It is because of this that everyone's personal rating of a TV will be different.

Screen Quality Matters
This TV has a resolution of 3840x2160 pixels. It is also known as 4K resolution. Resolution is used to convey to quality of the display on the TV. The higher resolution means a higher quality picture. The resolution of the screen is a central feature because it determines if the picture on the screen is clear or fuzzy. Though vertical refresh rate, type of backlighting and screen size does play a small part in determining the quality of the picture, too.

The Ins and Outs
The means by which the content is delivered to your Samsung TV is vital to quality. This TV has 4 HDMI ports , 3 USB ports , 1 audio-out port , 1 RF cable input , 1 ethernet port and WiFi. Having enough HDMI ports is important when connecting your devices. Four ports is enough for most consumers. Older style composite inputs are hardly supported by manufacturers for a good reason, it is considered old technology by today's standards. The slightly more advanced component inputs are much more common on televisions because of the fact that they are able to transmit up to 1080p resolution. Having wireless capabilities offers a great way to get through your home router to the Internet. This opens up an endless world to explore through your TV. Having an Ethernet port gives you a faster way to get online. Connecting through an Ethernet port is more reliable and will almost always be faster than going wireless. All in all, the hardware of a TV is just as vital as the size and resolution of the screen. Video in connections, WiFi connections, and even the audio out connections can limit the type and quality of TV shows and movies you can watch. Choosing the correct TV is impossible without knowing the specs. You should make it a point to check out the entire TV, not just how big the screen is!
