Great picture quality, but the curved screen is a flat-out gimmick

 

Although it does help reduce reflections somewhat, the curved shape of Samsung's UNHU9000 4K TV does nothing else to improve image quality, and in some ways actually impairs it. And it costs a whole lot more than a flat TV.

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 UN78HU9000F

 

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...

A Review of the Samsung UN78HU9000 Curved 78-Inch 4K Ultra HD 120Hz 3D LED TV

 

As one of the first 4K TVs from Samsung to come equipped with an HEVC decoder, the Samsung UN78HU9000 was way ahead of many UHD TV models in being a piece of technology that's ready for the future.

One excellent viewing experience ; Packed with display enhancement technologies ; Future-proofed design ; Full connectivity ; Excellent built-in speakers ; Great Smart TV UI with Smart Hub and remote control ; Beautifully large screen

Too expensive ; Side-angle viewing isn’t as great as it could be ; Lacks full-array LED backlighting

In terms of features and overall quality, the HU9000 goes the whole nine yards without failing in any way but you could probably settle for something cheaper and still be very happy.

Love the clarity of the picture

 

Great TV with great features - only caution I would give someone is be aware with the curved screen if you have a lot of windows in the room the TV will pick up a lot if reflection from those windows. I think if I had known that I would have got the...

Absolutely No Regrets

 

I had a 50 in Samsung 4K 3D TV bought about 8 months ago. It was a fantastic TV and it was the biggest that would fit in my TV armoire. I finally bit the bullet, got rid of the armoire and sold the 50 in to get a bigger TV. I bought this one. I think...
