Samsung JS9500 SUHD 4K TV review

 

Move over Galaxy Note 4, SUHD is Samsung's next big thing

Stunning picture ; Measurable improvements ; Ultra-slim bezel ; Tizen-developed Smart OS

Refresh rate ; Going to be expensive

Samsung's first SUHD TV is wildly impressive and even has the numbers to support it. In spite of that fact though there are still too many unknowns (ahem, price) to guarantee that it's worth its inevitably expensive price tag.

Samsung UE78JS9500

 

The UE78JS9500 could just be a home cinema fan's dream come true. After all, it takes the ground-breaking high dynamic range (HDR), native UHD/4K resolution and Tizen smart TV features of the recently tested UE65JS9500 and shoves them into a...

Spectacular, next-generation picture quality ; Good Smart TV system ; Future-proof connections and processing

It's prohibitively expensive ; Traces of blooming around bright objects ; Crosstalk with 3D

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

 

LAS VEGAS -- The eternal rivalry between Korean TV giants Samsung and LG has a new front: SUHD vs. OLED.

As we mentioned Samsung didn't announce pricing on this or any of its other 2015 TVs; it typically waits until March, right before the TVs ship, to do so. We're fairly certain the JS9500 will come at a hefty premium, albeit probably not as expensive...

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

 

Was looking to replace my 58" Panasonic Plasma and after researching all the 4K TV choices this one definitely fit my tastes. Wouldn't buy any other brand. Looks great on my wall even from sitting 18' away

Very impressive TV

 

Great picture, a lot of good features, Having 3D available for all programs is a big plus. The curve pulls you into the TV for a stronger viewing experience.
