Samsung UE48JS8500 review

 

Samsung's 48-inch JS8500 SUHD TV is an absolutely superb television with outstanding picture quality, superior audio, great Smart TV and stunning looks. Packed with high-end features such as nano crystal technology and HDR support, it's future-proof...

This Series 8 TV is now realistically affordable, and is definitely the best Samsung TV we've reviewed this year, apart from just one thing - the curve. But this is partly a matter of personal preference, so feel free to ignore us if you like. Asked by...

Samsung UE48JS8500 review

 

Entry-level SUHD provides an ultra-colourful backdrop

Superb colour ; Smooth motion ; 4K detail & upscaling ; Good internal audio

Black crush ; Lacks processing speed ; No desktop stand swivel ; Separate connections box

Nano-crystals or quantum dot? Call it what you will; the march of LED-backlit LCD TVs continues on this 48-incher with blistering colour to spare, though this decent value SUHD TV is not quite the finished article.

Picture calibration is difficult but necessary. Probably would not purchase a curved screen in the future because of the viewing angle.

Had to take back as the mini hub broke. Could not be fixed so got a voucher for a replacement. Would not recommend a TV with a hub for connecting HDMI links.. The replacement model I got did not have a hub. Annoyed as the know how voucher was only...

Picture and Features (connectivity for hard drive and memory stick storage)

Remote control set up. The Smart remote is an excellent device, but I'm having to use 3 different remotes to use all the options. On my old TV my sky remote worked everything.
