Samsung KS9000 SUHD 4K Ultra HD 240MR Smart LED 2016 TV Review (UN65KS9000, UN55KS9000)

 

After releasing several thoroughly reinvented 4K TVs in 2015 in the form of their now famous SUHD lineup, Samsung has continued their new branding choice into 2016 with the next generation of SUHD 4K ultra HD smart TVs with HDR and quantum dot color...

Excellent HDR specs ; Superb peak brightness ; Some very deep rich blacks ; Great smart platform ; Physically beautiful ; Very good color performance

Weak viewing angles ; No 3D support ; Lacks USB 3.0 ; We’d prefer full-array LED backlighting

The bottom line is that the Samsung KS9000 is one excellent choice for a 2016 4K HDR LCD TV if you haven’t yet bought one and are looking for a premium model or want top-shelf HDR technology. However, if you’re not worried about the best in high...

Samsung UE65KS9000 review

 

Samsung's latest flagship TV is stunning … but very expensive

Incredible picture quality ; Best ever HDR ; Great smart features

It's so expensive ; Curved screen is divisive ; No 3D support

The Samsung UE65KS9000 is a stunning TV and one we'd recommend to anyone who can afford the near-£3000 asking price. The Samsung UE65KS9000 is a stunning TV, and one we'd recommend to anyone who can afford the near-£3,000 asking price. Disclaimer: This...

Samsung UE65KS9000 review

 

Another fantastic 4K HDR TV from Samsung that suggests LCD TVs aren't going anywhere any time soon

Sharp picture ; Realistic colours ; Improved OS ; Stylish

Lacks All4 and Demand5 ; Needs a soundbar

A great reason for continuing to stick with LCD. Once again, another effortless five stars for Samsung

Samsung UA65KS9000 review

 

With 4K and HDR, it's tough to get close to a telly as stunning as this

Excellent picture, whether in 4K, HD or SD ; Smart functionality means 4K and HDR programming is easily available ; Stunning looks will grace any living room

LCD tech means occasional slight light-bleed issues ; No 3D functionality

A splendid TV: 4K, HDR and superior smarts in a beautiful svelte package.

Samsung SUHD 65KS9000 HDR LED TV Review

 

Top-notch performance with high resolutions HDR content looks life-like and natural Excellent smart TV interface OneConnect box for easy connectivity Good looks

Expensive Weak upscaling abilities Streaming apps are occasionally buggy Remote buttons are a bit stiff

The Samsung 65KS9000 SUHD TV is without a doubt one of the best TVs you can buy today. Although it's Rs. 4,40,900 price tag is likely to scare a lot of buyers away, discerning videophiles and television enthusiasts are unlikely to find a TV that offers...

Samsung KS9000 (UE65KS9000) UHD 4K TV Review

 

Samsung's 65-inch KS9000 is a stunning TV, delivering deep blacks, outstanding contrast and better-than-ever colours. The only question mark over it is...

Great blacks & contrast ; Capable of high colour accuracy ; HDR looks stunning ; Dimming system is mostly effective ; Excellent processing ; Impressive screen uniformity ; Great smart features ; Very low input lag

Dimming system blooms off-axis ; Occasional stuttering motion ; Doesn't track Rec.2020 well ; UK catch-up services missing ; No 3D

The Samsung UE65KS9000 is very close to as good as it gets in TV technology at this present time. The looks are gorgeous with a 360 degree design ethos and a striking curved screen and chassis, while the connectivity options are bang up-to-date and...

Another brilliant Samsung TV - beautiful, sleek and slim in design and the picture quality is great with extra features that further enhance viewing such as the sports mode. It is big - and took a little getting used to (have had it just over a month...
