Samsung UN48JS8500

 

The JS8500 is a very good performer for an LCD TV, and its color accuracy, video processing and most other picture quality aspects are excellent. Its black levels are also relatively deep, but not as deep as some of the other TVs we've tested such as...

The UNJS8500 is Samsung's highest-end 2015 TV with a flat rather than curved screen. It delivers very good picture quality, with relatively deep black levels, accurate color and solid video processing. It's the least-expensive TV compatible with HDR...

Despite the nanocrystal-powered color and HDR compatibility inherent in Samsung's SUHD name, the JS8500 doesn't offer appreciably better image quality than many less expensive TVs. It has lighter black levels than some top competitors, an issue...

The Samsung UNJS8500 SUHD TV has a very good picture for an edge-lit LED LCD, but not good enough to justify the price.

Samsung JS8500 SUHD TV combines nanocrystals, flat screen

 

Samsung's new SUHD TVs promise improved LCD color and brightness, and the only one with a flat screen is the JS8500 series.

A Review of the Samsung JS8500 SUHD 4K Ultra HD LED 3D TV Series (2015 Flat Screen Model) – UN48JS8500, UN55JS8500, UN65JS8500

 

Samsung has been one of the top manufacturers of 4K TVs since they came into existence and their 2015 lineup of new TVs is not only no exception, it goes beyond even the quality of 2014's 4K TVs to deliver a newly defined ultra HD viewing experience.

Superb Tizen OS ; Exquisite color thanks to quantum dots ; Full connectivity package ; Great dynamic range

No full-array backlighting

The Samsung JS8500 doesn't offer the absolute best technologies of the JS9500 SUHD flagship 4K TVs but then again it also costs a couple thousand dollars less. Furthermore, this TV now also offers HDR compatibility and is thus an excellent, relatively...

pretty cool tv

 

really is nice when I put in a Blu-ray movie. 3D is kinda cool when im playing games and stuff. holding your finger on the dot button allows you to point at the screen and do stuff just like a wii remote. very colorful tv

though the tv is great for movies and stuff, its a little big for gaming, plus its not as fast as my small monitor. otherwise its a really nice tv

Free TV

 

Think I am gonna get one as well...hopefully free too?

A guy I know purchased this TV and ended up having to RMA it because it was broken upon delivery. When he RMA's it, they ended up sending him 2 TV's by accident. When he called them about the additional TV, they just said to keep it ; He basically got...

Menu is a little finicky and the colors are a little washed out but nothing a few setting changes can't fix

Great all around.

 

Looks good, great pictures and features. I am happy with the set. It's a 48 inch version and just the right size for my needs. The sound is better than expected as having read "professional" online reviews, I had not anticipated it to be that good. If...

This SUHD TV is AWESOME!

 

I bought this about a month ago, and so far I have been impressed. Set up was easy, the picture is freaking awesome right out of the box, the sound is pretty decent, might get a sound bar down the road, the remote at first I thought it was so so, but...

Excellent Picture Quality.

 

I was looking for a TV that could double as a computer monitor. I own 5 HD tvs (6 now). The other TVs have a blurry display when connecting my computer with an HDMI cable. I researched TVs and this one is highly recommended. Display is crisp and sharp...
