Samsung UE55JS8000 review

 

The Samsung UE55JS8000 is a 55-inch Series 8 TV with a flat screen, and is simply the best TV we've reviewed in 2015. With nano crystal technology and a super-bright screen bringing natural colours and incredible shadow detail, it creates the most...

Samsung has given us just what we wanted in time for Christmas - a Series 8 television with a flat screen. The JS8000 is exactly the same as the JS8500 curved TV , but with a flat screen. Asked by Jack from UK on 10th Mar 2016 Reply

It has a stunning picture and the sound quality is good, although that is improved with a sound bar.

There isn't a direct one-touch button to switch the subtitles on and off and it has a rather complicated menu structure.

Screen is excellent.

Doesn't automatically switch to DTS or Dolby sound. Very slow when starting up, due to external HDMI one connect box. USB connections slow to respond. Weekly TV guide does not update beyond 7 days - very annoying.
