Samsung KS9800 Review – SUHD 4K Ultra HD 240MR Smart LED TV (UN65KS9800, UN78KS9500, UN88KS9500)

Samsung Curved UE78KS9500

 

Nice TV, a tad pricey, although I suppose it is a78" screen. HD & 4K Picture quality is outstanding. Worth the investment. Can't really comment pn the sound as it's hooked up to a home theatre system.

Can't think of any?

Expensive
