Answered 65nu7400 or 55nu8000?


Novice Member
I'm looking at one of the 65nu7400 or 55nu8000. It has to be one of these models so the 65 nu8000 isn't an option.

Between these two, bigger or better for a family lounge? Obviously the 8000 is the better set but is the bigger size of the 7400 worth the "downgrade"?

Viewing distance is around 2.5-2.8m, mostly watching hd tv and films (sky/Netflix), gaming via pc streaming, occasionally sport (but that's a low requirement). This will be my first foray into uhd via Netflix

At that distance, personally I would go for the 65NU7400.

You likely won't notice the additional performance of the NU8000 at that distance. Perhaps the increased brightness would help for HDR content, but even then the NU8000 is considered the first 'acceptable' HDR set, it's still not a 'good' HDR set.
