Samsung UN55HU9000

 

Samsung says the curve increases immersion, but the UN65HU9000 feels no more "immersive" than any big, flat, excellent-performing TV. At times I was distracted by the distortions the curve introduced, but for the most part I never noticed it. The curve...

The UNHU9000 curved 4K LED LCD has an excellent picture with deep black levels, accurate color and great bright-room viewing qualities. Its styling is drop-dead gorgeous, and the curve lends a unique, futuristic look. The feature set is...

Aside from reducing reflections somewhat, the curve provides no benefit to image quality, and in fact introduces subtle distortions. The HU9000 is also more expensive than most 65-inch 4K TVs, including Samsung's own flat versions. The high resolution...

The Samsung HU9000 has straight-up great picture quality, design and features, but the gratuitous curved screen adds very little to the viewing experience and way too much to the price.

Samsung UNHU9000 review

 

Samsung has poured millions into research and development for its curved TVs, and millions more into marketing under the slogan, "The Curve Changes Everything." Ironically, in my experience the curve changes pretty much nothing, except the price.

Samsung UN55HU9000 4K 120Hz Smart LED TV

 

The Ultra Clear Panel does a lot to improve the picture quality on the 65HU9000. The most noticable improvement is the reduction of reflection and absorbsion of ambient lighting. These Ultra Clear Panels take care of that problem without creating a...

Colors can really pop on the 65HU9000. More important though is the source content since the picture quality depends upon the resolution the content was filmed in. Displaying true 4K content is going to get the best picture out of this TV hands down....

Samsung HU9000 (HU8500)

 

This is Samsung's second-generation Ultra HD TV. After releasing F9000 last year, Samsung has decided to launch several Ultra HD ranges this year. HU9000 (HU8500 in Europe) is the flagship model and as you might have noticed by now, Samsung believes...

Picture quality ; 4K Netflix looks great ; Upgradeable with One Connect ; HDMI 2.0 and HEVC

Curve has no advantages ; Black level worse than last year ; Audible fan noise from One Connect ; High input lag ; Smart TV clutter

We were happy to see that Samsung went back to the drawing board in 2013 and designed a Smart TV interface with focus on simplicity. Unfortunately, Samsung has started to add gimmicky features on top again. The key here is the make the Smart TV...

Wi-Fi does not work couldn't get the wireless to work at all even calling Samsung, they don't know anything! And reflective if you are way off on the side and there is a reflection coming from the other side of the screen, I guess it's the curve, best...

Elegant design beautiful picture

 

Strikingly sharp looking TV. Beautiful picture. Good sound even without the sound bar. Although I have a Denon receiver that I will run it through. The one con for me is that it will pickup light distractions. You will have to turn off lamps and...
