Samsung UN49KS8000


The KS8000 series reviewed here is currently Samsung's least-expensive SUHD TV for 2016 , promising improved picture quality over the company's cheaper 4K TVs. In our tests its image was impressive in some ways, but not up to the overall level of some...

The Samsung KS8000 has a good picture for bright rooms, accurate color and superb video processing. Samsung incorporates unique devices and smart home control features, tied together with a simple remote and interface. The design is sleek and minimalist.

It's more expensive than some TVs that perform better. It also lacks analog video inputs.

A bright image and plenty of smart extras will help the Samsung KS8000 gain some followers, but its picture falls short of the competition.

Samsung KS8000 SUHD 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV Review (UN49KS8000,UN55KS8000, UN65KS8000)


Price: $1,797.99 - $2,799.99 on Amazon

Excellent HDR specs ; Superb peak brightness ; Tizen has improved ; Physically beautiful ; Solid color performance

Weak viewing angles ; No 3D support ; Lacks USB 3.0 ; We’d like full-array LED backlighting

The Bottom Line for the KS8000 is the same as it was in our review of the KS9000. This is an excellent HDR 4K LCD TV, if you haven’t bought such a TV yet, then definitely go for this or the other 2016 SUHD models instead of for their 2015 cousins....

If you fancy getting your hands on Samsung's mostly excellent 2016 TV tech but don't like curved screens, the UE49KS8000 is for you.

Samsung UE49KS8000 review


A stunning all-round performance from Samsung's flagship flatscreen TV

Bright screen ; Great HDR performance ; Stunning picture quality across all sources ; Punchy colours ; Plenty of subtle detail ; Stable picture

Blacks could go a touch deeper ; Some 'blooming' noticeable with HDR content

Samsung’s flagship flatscreen delivers a stunning all-round performance

Samsung UE49KS8000 review


Flat, 4K, surprisingly affordable, and really rather good

Strong design ; Genuine HDR experience ; Good value ; Outstanding SDR picture quality

Some HDR backlight issues ; Colour striping with HDR ; No 3D support ; Some missing apps

The UE49KS8000 continues Samsung's dedicated pursuit of the ultimate HDR experience with its high brightness and powerful colour technologies. There are one or two stumbles along the way, but overall no other TV around today offers the same level of...

With just the 9-series above it, the Samsung UE49KS8000 is a high-end 2016 4K HDR TV. It can't quite match its larger 55-inch sibling for sound quality, but it's still pretty pleasing to the ear. Can it make up some ground with fantastic picture quality?

Samsung UE49KS8000


Takes a little getting used to, coming from a plasma the screen appeared a little washed out but am getting used to it now HD looks like UHD and UHD is simply stunning The sound is a bonus too - the TV is quite thick so there are some fairly beefy...

screen seemed wishy washy at first but may be needed running in Unfortunately the quality of the TV shows inadequacies in the source so can be frustrating - but that is down to the quality of the TV
