Samsung UN88JS9500 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 UN88JS9500F

 

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 UN88JS9500FXZA

 

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...

Consumer review (samsung.uk)

Disappointing

 

It looks great in the shop, but at home I have yet to be impressed by the picture quality with 4k Netflix vs standard HD. I bought the hype but have yet to find it was money well spent.
