Samsung UN49KS8000

 

The KS8000 series reviewed here is currently Samsung's least-expensive SUHD TV for 2016 , promising improved picture quality over the company's cheaper 4K TVs. In our tests its image was impressive in some ways, but not up to the overall level of some...

The Samsung KS8000 has a good picture for bright rooms, accurate color and superb video processing. Samsung incorporates unique devices and smart home control features, tied together with a simple remote and interface. The design is sleek and minimalist.

It's more expensive than some TVs that perform better. It also lacks analog video inputs.

A bright image and plenty of smart extras will help the Samsung KS8000 gain some followers, but its picture falls short of the competition.

Samsung UE49KS8000 review

 

Flat, 4K, surprisingly affordable, and really rather good

Strong design ; Genuine HDR experience ; Good value ; Outstanding SDR picture quality

Some HDR backlight issues ; Colour striping with HDR ; No 3D support ; Some missing apps

The UE49KS8000 continues Samsung's dedicated pursuit of the ultimate HDR experience with its high brightness and powerful colour technologies. There are one or two stumbles along the way, but overall no other TV around today offers the same level of...

If you fancy getting your hands on Samsung's mostly excellent 2016 TV tech but don't like curved screens, the UE49KS8000 is for you.

Samsung UE49KS8000 review

 

A stunning all-round performance from Samsung's flagship flatscreen TV

Bright screen ; Great HDR performance ; Stunning picture quality across all sources ; Punchy colours ; Plenty of subtle detail ; Stable picture

Blacks could go a touch deeper ; Some 'blooming' noticeable with HDR content

Samsung’s flagship flatscreen delivers a stunning all-round performance

Samsung UE49KS8000 49 Inch Smart 4K Ultra HD TV PQI 2300

 

Beautiful picture at 1080p or full 4k. The picture tweak menus are easy to navigate and the universal mini remote works very well

Not all the apps are available yet (bbc, itv catchup apps). Also setting up the universal remote shows up a few minor bugs where it can lose track of what audio device to associate with what source

Samsung UE49KS8000 49 Inch Smart 4K Ultra HD TV PQI 2300

 

I am genuinely amazed by the picture quality from SD and HD sources ; Coming from a 10 year old plasma I was worried about motion blur and black handling, neither are an issue ; 4k content via my existing amazon prime subscription ; One connect box...

I played with the expert picture settings and achieved better results than default... Don't rely on new features to automatically improve things ; Having such a good looking TV makes you want to put away the large and unsightly audio...
