Samsung UE65KS8000 review: Serious 4K HDR performance for under £1,500


A giant UHD-premium TV with great all-round performance - and gamers and sports fans will love it

Gorgeous design ; Great 4K and HDR image quality ; Best-in-class input lag

Best viewed head-on ; Backlighting is visible in a dark room ; No Dolby Vision

In summary, whilst not a world-beater, the Samsung UE65KS8000 is a good all-rounder, suitable for gamers, sports fans and those wishing to dip their toes into HDR. If you’re looking for a king-sized 4K HDR TV for under £2,000, then this is one TV you...

  (Rating Hidden)

This jumbo Samsung may set you back a pretty penny, but the 65-inch UE65KS8000 offers almost anything and everything you could wish for. As one of Samsung's highest-end TVs of 2016, you'll get top specs, including 4K HDR, but can it deliver the...

Samsung UE65KS8000


1080p is outstanding on normal freeview transmission and 4K will blow your mind, Sound quality is fantastic, 65"screen is amazing.

There are two remotes and the so called smart remote is more a pain, stick with the normal remote and you'll be fine.

Samsung UE65KS8000


Great picture for the money compared to OLED rivals.

Sitting about 10ft away from the screen with normal broadcast TV (ie. not HD) the pictures never appear to be in focus. So too much work for the processor to do to fill in all the missing information.

The picture is fantastic, although the default settings are the usual Samsung style overly-saturated HDR types - we prefer the "movie" setting.

Fantastic tv, but does take quite a bit of setting up to acheive natural and realistic colours. Onscreen menus are easy and intuitive to use.

Not a criticism of this actual tv, but it's worth remembering that a screen of this size needs the highest resolution input possible. 4K/HD images look fantastic, low resolution (older movies) look trrrible!
