Samsung UNKS8000 series: The cheapest SUHD isn't a super value proposition

 

Samsung's KS8000 has a lot of things going for it, but its image quality is eclipsed by some less expensive sets that perform better.

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 UN65KS8000

 

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...

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...

Samsung UE65KS8000 review

  (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.

Very easy set up and a highly effective single remote that works on the b/ray player, Apple TV and amazon fire. Fantastic picture quality. Extremely pleased.

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.

Samsung UE65KS8000

 

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