Samsung UN78JS9500 SUHD TV Review


The JS9500 is, by far, Samsung's finest TV to date.

The JS9500 is a remarkable feat in television design and engineering – easily Samsung’s best TV to date. It produces some of the most enchanting images I’ve ever laid eyes on – the sort I have a hard time looking away from – and it is a showpiece that...

Samsung UN78JS9500F


The JS9500 is Samsung's most potent Jedi warrior, its most expensive TV for 2015 and the one with the best picture. Its main advantage over our favorite TV of the year, LG's EF9500 OLED TV , is light output: it can get brighter.

The Samsung UNJS9500 series produces one of the best pictures of any LED LCD we've tested, with excellent contrast, deep black levels and superb color and video processing. It can get brighter than OLED TVs. The redesigned Smart TV system and remote...

The ultra-expensive JS9500 costs around the same as OLED TVs that deliver overall better image quality. Unlike OLED, its picture suffers when seen from off-angle, and blooming is visible in some scenes. It's only available with a curved screen.

Despite being an excellent example of LCD TV state of the art, Samsung's high-end JS9500 loses the picture quality battle against OLED TVs.

Samsung UN78JS9500FXZA


Samsung's flagship JS9500 series of curved 4K LED HDTVs have a striking design and multitudinous features, but the screen we tested showed significant light bloom.

Loads of connected features. Attractive design. Accurate colors. Very low input lag.

Very expensive. Distracting light bloom in very dark scenes.

Conclusions Samsung's JS9500 series is striking looking, comes packed with features, and its color accuracy certainly fulfills the company's claims about its nanocrystal technology. However, it can offer good contrast and deep blacks only alongside...

Samsung's best LCD TV brings a full array of nanocrystal LEDs


In a bid to beat the vaunted picture quality of LG's OLED TVs, Samsung created the JS9500, its best SUHD TV for 2015, which offers a full-array local-dimming backlight.

Best Overall TV I have ever owned!


I wanted to wait to write a review until I was able to put it through the tests with my newly acquired Samsung UBD-K8500 4K UltraHD Blu-ray player, and i can honestly say, it does not disappoint. Watching true UHD content with HDR is absolutely...

Best TV Ever


This Samung TV has the best picture that I have ever seen. It was super easy to set up and get watching. It has 3-D that is really stunning. The capability to upscale to UHD is great but it can also upscale from 2-D to 3-D and it does it pretty well....

Best picture fir a large screen TV
