Samsung UN65JS8500


The JS8500 is a very good performer for an LCD TV, and its color accuracy, video processing and most other picture quality aspects are excellent. Its black levels are also relatively deep, but not as deep as some of the other TVs we've tested such as...

The UNJS8500 is Samsung's highest-end 2015 TV with a flat rather than curved screen. It delivers very good picture quality, with relatively deep black levels, accurate color and solid video processing. It's the least-expensive TV compatible with HDR...

Very disappointed


TV was delivered, and although the power light was on, there was no picture or sound. After several days of dealing with a frustrating customer service department at Samsung, we returned the television, and bought a Sony. We are much happier now.

Phenomenal Picture


Crisp and clean images. Samsung has once again exceeded my expectations with their product. Setup was extremely easy and hookup of a/v equipment was simple to figure out. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone.
