Samsung UE55KS9000 review

 

Samsung dazzler shoots for the HDR stars

Truly spectacular HDR pictures ; Stunning curved design ; Much improved smart interface ; Excellent SDR performance

No 3D support ; Backlight striping with HDR ; Curved screen is divisive ; No 'Evolution Kit' support

With the UE55KS9000 Samsung is aiming to get maximum impact from the high dynamic range (HDR) technology that's sweeping the TV world. Throw in UHD resolution, an improved smart system and gorgeous design, and the £2,099 price starts to look more than...

Samsung UE55KS9000 review: 4K at its finest

 

With its superb picture quality and excellent HDR, Samsung's KS9000 is a force to be reckoned with

The DX902B isn’t as streamlined as the Samsung KS9000, but its picture quality is just as, if not more impressive and you're also less likely to run into viewing angle problems because it’s flat. As a result, the DX90B just inches ahead in my...

Samsung UE55KS9000 review

 

With 4K and HDR, it's tough to get too close to a telly as stunning as this

Excellent picture, whether in 4K, HD or SD ; Smart functionality means 4K and HDR programming is easily available ; Stunning looks will grace any living room

LCD tech means occasional slight light-bleed issues ; No 3D functionality

A splendid TV: 4K, HDR and superior smarts in a beautiful svelte package.

Samsung UE55KS9000 review

 

This stunning Samsung shows there's plenty of life left in LCD TVs...

Bright, vivid HDR capabilities ; Stunning picture quality across all sources, well-judged colour palette ; Stacks of fine detail ; Crisp, sharp edges ; Smooth movement ; Improved smart TV interface

Blacks could go deeper ; Some backlighting inconsistencies with HDR ; Curved screen not for everyone

It’s not without its compromises, but the UE55KS9000 delivers a stunning picture for the money.

Samsung UE55KS9000 review

  (Rating Hidden)

Part of Samsung's top ticket 9-series range, the curved UE55KS9000 promises pin-sharp pictures and vibrant colours with 4K HDR. It certainly shows off its premium pedigree with exceptional sound, but can it match this quality when it comes to the...
