Samsung MU9000 – UN55MU9000, UN65MU9000, UN75MU9000 Review

Type: LED Resolution: 4k Refresh Rate: 120 Hz Screen Size: 55″ – 75″

Samsung 4K MU9000 TV models come in three screen sizes of 55 (UN55MU9000), 65 (UN65MU9000) and 75 (UN75MU9000) inches in comparison to the 49, 55, 65 and 75 inch MU8000. We definitely agree that ‘less is more’, however, in comparison of the different, yet same, Samsung TV models. The ‘value’ with price always makes the difference.

The Samsung MU9000 is Premium 4K Smart TV with capital ‘P’! excellence in color contrast and level of black tone richer and deeper thanks to Triple Black Extreme technology in place and with a Motion Rate 240 with native 120 Hz processor, providing a smoothness of image transition.

Best for premium color and black uniformity and abundance of color shades with smooth flow of action with the Motion Rate 240 Hz processor that brings the sports of baseball, football and basketball to an awesome ‘armchair reality’ in your living room. Perfect for sports enthusiasts and all movie aficionados. .

We suggest considering 55-inch MU9000 sporting 240 Hz processor over the similar price of the 65-inch 120 Hz MU8000. With faster refresh rate, low input lag, and richer blacks and wider color gamut of Samsung’s MU9000, value will be sustained for a longer time. Why quibble over a few inches?

The first thing to look at in considering a TV, or perhaps the first thing that attracts to then looking deeper into the TV is the overall look of the TV. Both the 55 and 65-inch MU9000 4K TV models are flat panel screens and come with V-shaped metal stand for sturdiness on tabletop as well the signature sleek, clean 360 degree ‘design’ that is found in all the MU series TVs, from the MU7000, 8000, and 9000 series, making aesthetically beautiful flush-to-wall mounting. The thin metal border will not take away from the brilliance of color image on screen.

Picture Quality

Now to get beyond the ‘pretty face’ to what matters with the higher end Samsung 4K MU9000 TVs: The picture quality! The MU9000 color brilliance is derived from Color Drive Extreme technology which produces a wide color gamut of shades of color to make for a very realistic image view with little color banding that could come when colors go from light to dark. Black tones are deep and rich with Triple Black Extreme and makes for the all important contrast ratio to be rated quite well. The native refresh rate is 120 Hz and enhanced by Motion Rate 240 bringing blur to a minimum. Color diminishes when viewed twenty degrees off center. Up-scaling of lower resolution content also sharp.

Sound Quality

Sound: it is what keeps Samsung techs up at night. The bad volume and harmony of the sleek, thin high tech TVs. When volume decibel is kept in mid-range it is ‘just average’ and we do recommend purchasing external speakers or at the least a sound bar to enhance clarity.


The MU9000 is as perfect as can be without having to purchase the latest of TV perfection in the Samsung QLED, quantum dot, technology. Such beautiful prices for so much Samsung technological expertise packed into fifty-five or sixty-five inches of space!

This premium MU9000 is a flat panel TV and premium MU8500 is a curved panel with a noticeable price jump for the sixty-five inch screen. (want vs need) The fifty-five inch screen, however, of the MU9000 is – HOW MUCH? ‘WOW’ – what an amazing price for the smooth transition of images with native 120 Hz processor with Motion Rate 240 built on that, and such realistic color detail due to the UHD Re-mastering Engine optimizing color and contrast ratio, and yes the black tone is rich and deep by the Precision Black feature, which is by another name called local dimming. Local dimming means that when there is a dark scene the backlight panel will adjust light so black tones retain dark tone and not ‘grey out.’

With local dimming the TV can be viewed in average lighting or dark room settings, as is the case of the versatile premium Samsung MU9000. This is luxury TV viewing and, even with largest screen, price is not so ‘crazy.’ It’s really quite affordable and gives stature to your work efforts to be able to say YES to this premium TV. The good news is, if this isn’t quite right for the budget, there is a Samsung MU model that is ‘ju-ussst right.’

Smart Features

The MU9000 has many great Smart TV features including that of the fast quad core processor 2017 Tizen operating system and Smart Hub platform that enables very easy navigation from the popular apps such as Hulu, Amazon Video and Netflix to streaming content via the external devices connected to TV, by way of four HDMI ports three USB ports found on the One Connect Box that connects all devices with one single cable from box to TV.

There is ability to also download many apps from the Samsung store. Screen mirroring feature allows for mirroring content seen on Smart phone or tablet to TV or from TV to Smart phone or tablet. The Smart One Remote is simple and universal, and voice activated that works on all devices attached to the MU9000. There is very low input lag and that makes this ideal for video gaming. Kudos for Smart TV!
