Samsung UN85S9 Review: Massive 85-Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV

 

Ready to splash down just under $40,000 for a TV? Of course, this isn't just any ordinary TV, it's the Samsung UN85S9 Ultra HD “4K” television and at 85 inches, it's absolutely huge. Its sheer size alone will make sure it totally dominates any room you...

Spectacular Ultra High Definition 3,820 x 2,160 pixel viewing quality that’s perfect for 4K content, Blu-Ray and Ultra HD TV programs ; full array local dimming backlight for massively improved picture quality ; 120 Hz Refresh Rate that creates...

It costs 39,999 dollars! ; In practical terms, the Ultra HD 4K Benefits of the screen resolution will be lost as far as most TV content goes. ; You can get nearly identical viewing quality from numerous models of 1080p/HD TVs at a tiny fraction of the...

Samsung UN85S9AF LCD/LED Ultra HDTV

 

The UN85S9AF is a hyper-expensive flagship for Samsung, and more of a technology demonstration than a product for the masses. But the money, as they say in Hollywood, is up there on the screen to see. Also, rounded edges would be more attractive....

Accurate color; Superb resolution; Near state-of-the-art black level and shadow detail; Huge, bright picture

Samsung UN85S9 Ultra HD Television Reviewed

 

The future of television is Ultra HD. Samsung has been among the first to enter the fray with the company's UN85S9 Ultra HD set, which comes with a hefty price tag. Jerry Del Colliano evaluates.

Remember the first time that you heard about an electric car? It was pretty amazing. Engineers were making dreams into reality in ways that could make our world's dependence on fossil fuels a thing of the past. The entire idea was awe-inspiring in ways...

Samsung UE85S9 review

 

When I was first told I would be doing an exclusive test of Samsung's UE85S9 TV, I suspected my review would be built around just one thing: the jaw-dropping £35,000 price tag.

Ultra HD pictures look magical; impressive upscaling; sound quality is insanely good; the design is a work of art

Marginal haloing during dark scenes; occasional bluish noise over fine details; I can’t afford one
