The UE55HU8290 supports Wi-Fi, as do most of the other TVs of this age and spec.

We compared this TV to all the other TVs which support Wi-Fi and we think the Toshiba 58L9363 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Display

Quite Fast High Frequency Rate

At 1,000 hertz, the Samsung UE55HU8290 has a quite fast high frequency rate compared to most of the other comparable spec TVs that came out around the same time as this TV. The average high frequency rate of 4K and 8K TVs that came out around the same time as this TV is 840Hz, and the high frequency rates range from 50Hz to 3,000Hz.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 1,000Hz refresh rate TVs currently available including because of their better review scores, the Samsung UE55HU8200 (£679.99), or the LG 55LA970.

If you want a faster high frequency rate then you might want to look at the TX-48AX630 (1,200Hz and higher rated), the TX-55AX630 (£951.39) (1,200Hz and higher rated), or the TX-40AX630 (£639.09) (1,200Hz and higher rated) all from Panasonic.

55 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 55 inches television.

We compared this television to all the other 55" TVs and we think because of their better review scores, the Sony KD-55X8505, and the LG 55UB850 are also worth considering.

If you are looking for a larger display diagonal then you might want to look at the LG 60UF770 (£1,199) (60" and higher rated).
