You will find it well suitable for what you have planned for it. That price is a steal I paid the same for the 55 inch 2 months agoThe 65U8 is £590 in Costco at the moment.
I’m interested in it to replace a 5 year old budget Samsung (MU6120)
I’ve never messed around with the Samsung and It’s been ok for me for general viewing in a brightly lit room.
Is this ok out the box to replace it? For just causal viewing for my wife the majority of the time and my 3 year old daughter on Netflix and Youtube.
I know I’m on a site where everybody wants their tv perfect
The U8GQ is rated at max 1000 nits peak brightness with its IPS pannel, while the US version U8G gets the better VA 1500 nits pannel. The Samsung AU9000 is rated at 350 nits, so even the EU version should be noticeable brighter.I'm wondering how good it is at upscaling SD/HD tv channels.
Also how does it handle motion in football ?
What's the screen like for reflections ?
No its just one more feature we lowly EU citizen don't get, so HDR modes are all locked to 60hz max.It's possible that the tv cannot process the bandwidth required for 1080p 120Hz HDR?
There is a setting on the Sky box for reducing judder in apps. I haven't tried it myself as I use Netflix built into the TV rather than Sky.Evening all. I had this tv (65") delivered yesterday. Have a 2tb sky q box connected. We seem to be suffering from a sort of judder/motion issue when watching netflix or prime via the sky box. If we're watching channels on sky we don't seem to have an issue. Does anyone have any ideas to some setup changes that could help? Has anyone else encountered anything like this.
The anti glare is brilliant compared to the old panasonic that it's replaced and I'm more than happy with the picture quality. No issues watching the football or the golf. Just films via apps on thr sky box.

The upscaling on the U8GQ via vidaa os/processor is actually good, yet they used a cheaper mid range processor, which means any extra load on the CPU results in stuttering/frame skips. So as example if you want to use the TV's Plex app and play 1080p content you get frequent frame skips. In contrast if you use the better optimized internal media player via USB/DLNA than it runs smoothly.
The motion options are very good, with 5 presets and a custom option, so the "Sport" preset will work fine.
The screen has some "mild" anti glare coating, that reduces/diffuses light a bit, but still has visible reflections so color/contrast is retained. In HDR mode the screen is usually so bright that you wont notice any reflections.
This is always greyed out and not available whenever HDR comes on with 4k content?There is gamma calibration under advanced picture options. Adjust it to 5% = 6, 10% = 5, 15% = 4, 20% = 3
Yes, but gamma adjustment is send/assumed by the source, so should not really be changed.gamma calibrations there but it doesn't do much.
