How does OLED compete with Ultra HD? Easy – just add a curve.

Beautiful OLED ; Looks great

Why curved? ; Expensive

Samsung KE55S9C OLED TV review

 

It's curved, it's got an OLED panel and it costs a cool £7000. It sure looks like the future, but can Samsung's new flagship justify its sky-high price?

Stunning picture ; Multi View saves fighting for the remote ; That curve

Very expensive ; No 4K

A TV with a twist: bold design, a great picture and neat features – for a price.

Samsung KE55S9C

 

A fabulous first step and a memorable design – for a price

Properly dark blacks ; Punchy, vibrant colours ; Excellent connectivity and features ; Clean, crisp image ; That curve

Could do with more detail and subtlety in the lightest and darkest areas ; High price ; No 4K ; That curve

Our experience with the Samsung KE55S9C was an enjoyable one. It made a great first impression, and it only got better. As a sign of things to come, it has us very excited.

Samsung KE55S9C (S9) Curved OLED TV Review

 

It's taken longer than we'd hoped but has OLED been worth the wait and does it live up to its early promise?

Absolute black levels ; Reference dynamic range and contrast ratios ; Reference greyscale and colour accuracy ; Excellent video processing ; Reference 3D performance ; Reference features and smart platform ; Gorgeous design ; Superb build quality ;...

Curved screen will divide opinion ; Can't be wall mounted ; Input lag too high for serious gamers ; Motion resolution is 300 lines with Motion Plus off

It may have taken longer to arrive than we had hoped but OLED has certainly been worth the wait. The Samsung KE55S9C lives up to all its early promise, producing the kind of black levels that enthusiasts have only dreamed about before. It can also do...
