Samsung UN65JS9500

 

The JS9500 is Samsung's most potent Jedi warrior, its most expensive TV for 2015 and the one with the best picture. Its main advantage over our favorite TV of the year, LG's EF9500 OLED TV , is light output: it can get brighter.

The Samsung UNJS9500 series produces one of the best pictures of any LED LCD we've tested, with excellent contrast, deep black levels and superb color and video processing. It can get brighter than OLED TVs. The redesigned Smart TV system and remote...

The ultra-expensive JS9500 costs around the same as OLED TVs that deliver overall better image quality. Unlike OLED, its picture suffers when seen from off-angle, and blooming is visible in some scenes. It's only available with a curved screen.

Despite being an excellent example of LCD TV state of the art, Samsung's high-end JS9500 loses the picture quality battle against OLED TVs.

Samsung UN65JS9500FXZA

 

Samsung's flagship JS9500 series of curved 4K LED HDTVs have a striking design and multitudinous features, but the screen we tested showed significant light bloom.

Loads of connected features. Attractive design. Accurate colors. Very low input lag.

Very expensive. Distracting light bloom in very dark scenes.

Conclusions Samsung's JS9500 series is striking looking, comes packed with features, and its color accuracy certainly fulfills the company's claims about its nanocrystal technology. However, it can offer good contrast and deep blacks only alongside...

Samsung UN65JS9500 SUHD TV review

 

The JS9500 is, by far, Samsung's finest TV to date.

The JS9500 is a remarkable feat in television design and engineering – easily Samsung’s best TV to date. It produces some of the most enchanting images I’ve ever laid eyes on – the sort I have a hard time looking away from – and it is a showpiece that...

Samsung JS9500 and JS9000 SUHD 4K TVs review - At the pinnacle of LCD TV tech

 

Based on quantum dot technology and running Tizen OS, Samsung's "SUHD" 4K TVs are the company's highest-end 4K TVs. Does the semiconductor material really make a difference? Here's our review of the flagship JS9500 and JS9000.

There’s a lot to like about Samsung’s JS9500 and JS9000 SUHD TVs. Both have features filled to the brim; but more importantly, their image quality is top notch too.

Review of the Samsung JS9500 SUHD Curved 4K ultra HD LED LCD Smart TV Series – UN65JS9500, UN78JS9500, UN88JS9500

 

When it comes to Samsung, you can almost always count on some serious quality and this trait especially applies to the manufacturers 4K ultra HD TVs . As the company with the largest market share of the market and some of the longest running experience...

Ready for HDR and next-gen 4K content ; OneConnect box offers future proofing ; Quantum Dot nano-crystal color enhancement ; Superb vibrancy and overall quality in display ; Excellent connectivity ; access to wide range of 4K content sources ;...

Very expensive TV ; Curved screen adds little or nothing to visual value

If you have the money to spend on it, the Samsung UN65JS9500 SUHD 4K TV is probably the single best 4K home entertainment option available on sale today. It’s your gateway to the next generation of 4K ultra HD content.

Samsung UE65JS9500 4K TV review: High Dynamic Range master

 

According to Samsung, the 65-inch JS9500 is more than just a UHD TV; it's an SUHD TV. It's tempting to imagine that the extra S stands for "super", although Super Ultra High-Definition might sound a bit much, and Samsung's marketing division is keen to...

SUHD technology delivers 4K pictures of extreme brightness and colour, ideally suited to the upcoming HDR era; smart system works well once you get used to it too; easily upgraded to support future formats and connections

Expensive for an LCD TV; curved screen could be divisive - certainly its reflectivity could be an issue with light sources directly opposite; occasional light bloom around very bright objects (has the potential to be exaggerated by certain HDR sources)

While the Samsung UE65JS9500 isn't quite perfect, if you can install it so that you're not too affected by its reflection issues then its picture strengths far outweigh its flaws.

Samsung UE65JS9500 review

 

For Samsung, 4K is yesterday's news. Old hat. Water under an ultra high-definition bridge. The brand is already on to the Next Big Thing. What's more, this Next Big Thing isn't just something creeping into ‘concept corners' at technology shows. It's...

Dazzling HDR pictures; non-HDR content also impresses; improved Smart engine; external connections box; premium build

It’s very expensive; curved design is divisive; no native HDR content yet, not much 4K either

Samsung SUHD smart TV (JS9500) review

 

Samsung's JS9500 holds a lot of promise and wastes some too

One Connect box offers clean set up and upgradable hardware ; Tizen OS is well designed and holds promise ; UHD resolution

Not enough UHD content and upscale engine leaves non-UHD content looking grainy ; Limited support with non-Samsung smartphone and tablets ; Thick panel, especially considering it works with a secondary computing box

Samsung UE65JS9500 review

 

Introducing the future of television

Ground breaking picture quality ; Tizen interface is effective ; Feature-rich smart TV platform ; Upgradable connectivity

It's very expensive ; No native HDR content ; Limited native 4K content ; Curved screen is divisive

With its high dynamic range (HDR) compatibility and native 4K resolution the UE65JS9500 is almost too futuristic for its own good given the current shortage of native HDR and 4K content. But it's also so damn brilliant that we'd recommend you save up...
