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 UE55KS9000

 

The 55-inch UHD UE55KS9000 TV is the first model from Samsung's brand-new 2016 range. It boasts a revamped version of Samsung's Tizen-based smart TV system and, for the first time ever in a TV (rather than professional monitor), it manages to deliver...

Samsung UE55KS9000 review

 

This stunning Samsung shows there's plenty of life left in LCD TVs...

Bright, vivid HDR capabilities ; Stunning picture quality across all sources, well-judged colour palette ; Stacks of fine detail ; Crisp, sharp edges ; Smooth movement ; Improved smart TV interface

Blacks could go deeper ; Some backlighting inconsistencies with HDR ; Curved screen not for everyone

It’s not without its compromises, but the UE55KS9000 delivers a stunning picture for the money.

Samsung UE55KS9000 review

 

With 4K and HDR, it's tough to get too 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 UE55KS9000 review

 

Most of the time the UE55KS9000 is a stunning TV, delivering all the thrills UHD and HDR can offer. But the edge LED lighting system isn't foolproof and there's no 3D support

Samsung UE55KS9000 review

 

Samsung dazzler shoots for the HDR stars

Truly spectacular HDR pictures ; Stunning curved design ; Much improved smart interface ; Excellent SDR performance

No 3D support ; Backlight striping with HDR ; Curved screen is divisive ; No 'Evolution Kit' support

With the UE55KS9000 Samsung is aiming to get maximum impact from the high dynamic range (HDR) technology that's sweeping the TV world. Throw in UHD resolution, an improved smart system and gorgeous design, and the £2,099 price starts to look more than...

Samsung UE55KS9000 review: 4K at its finest

 

With its superb picture quality and excellent HDR, Samsung's KS9000 is a force to be reckoned with

The DX902B isn’t as streamlined as the Samsung KS9000, but its picture quality is just as, if not more impressive and you're also less likely to run into viewing angle problems because it’s flat. As a result, the DX90B just inches ahead in my...

  (Rating Hidden)

Part of Samsung's top ticket 9-series range, the curved UE55KS9000 promises pin-sharp pictures and vibrant colours with 4K HDR. It certainly shows off its premium pedigree with exceptional sound, but can it match this quality when it comes to the...

Samsung KS9000 (UE55KS9000) UHD 4K TV Review

 

Samsung launch their 2016 Ultra HD 4K TV line-up with the KS9000, a curved edge-lit SUHD model with quantum dot, support for HDR and an updated smart...

Excellent greyscale and colour accuracy ; Great black levels and contrast ratios ; Impressive local dimming ; Effective video processing ; Good backlight uniformity ; HDR content looks stunning ; Incredibly low input lag ; Attractive design ;...

No 3D support ; Occasional bright edges

The Samsung UE55KS9000 is an attractively designed and well made TV that offers a host of cutting-edge features at a decent price. The 360 degree design works well, resulting in a TV that combines a minimalist approach with a degree of visual flair....
