Samsung KU6500 Review – 4k UHD Smart Curved LED TV Series (UN65KU6500, UN55KU6500)

 

Samsung first released the follow-ups to their excellent and popular 2015 SUHD TVs in the form of the 2016 SUHD KS-Series (Series 8 and Series 9) HDR 4K TVs, and now they've done more or less the same for their 2015 JU-Series 4K UHD TVs through the new...

Tizen smart OS is better than ever ; Good display brightness ; Samsung’s upscaling engine as good as ever ; Decent contrast ; Great design aesthetic ; Reasonably priced

Fab design. Fab picture. So easy to use.

Curve design means viewing angles not quite 170 degrees.

Samsung UE55KU6510

 

A nice looking TV with good picture.

Issues with apps, very flaky with NowTV and severe flaws with satelite reception where freeview worked for a few weeks and then disappeared forever. Would not recommend the set.
