Samsung UE55KS9000 4K HDR TV 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


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.

Slim design. Easy to set up.

Really bad picture judder. Makes watching TVs drama very poor. Changing settings does not seem to solve the problem.

Samsung UE55KS9000


The sheer quality of the image and the style/design.

It is very complex to operate and the controls take time to get used to. It is expensive.

Great picture quality

Samsung UE55KS9000


One day in, picture is stunning and surprisingly the sound is good even with home cinema system switched off. Easy to connect other devices, even those that are not Samsung.

Nothing so far.
