Samsung UE65JS9500 4K TV review: High Dynamic Range master

 

According to Samsung, the 65-inch JS9500 is more than just a UHD TV; it's an SUHD TV. It's tempting to imagine that the extra S stands for "super", although Super Ultra High-Definition might sound a bit much, and Samsung's marketing division is keen to...

SUHD technology delivers 4K pictures of extreme brightness and colour, ideally suited to the upcoming HDR era; smart system works well once you get used to it too; easily upgraded to support future formats and connections

Expensive for an LCD TV; curved screen could be divisive - certainly its reflectivity could be an issue with light sources directly opposite; occasional light bloom around very bright objects (has the potential to be exaggerated by certain HDR sources)

While the Samsung UE65JS9500 isn't quite perfect, if you can install it so that you're not too affected by its reflection issues then its picture strengths far outweigh its flaws.

Samsung UE65JS9500 review

 

For Samsung, 4K is yesterday's news. Old hat. Water under an ultra high-definition bridge. The brand is already on to the Next Big Thing. What's more, this Next Big Thing isn't just something creeping into ‘concept corners' at technology shows. It's...

Dazzling HDR pictures; non-HDR content also impresses; improved Smart engine; external connections box; premium build

It’s very expensive; curved design is divisive; no native HDR content yet, not much 4K either

Samsung UE65JS9500 review

 

Introducing the future of television

Ground breaking picture quality ; Tizen interface is effective ; Feature-rich smart TV platform ; Upgradable connectivity

It's very expensive ; No native HDR content ; Limited native 4K content ; Curved screen is divisive

With its high dynamic range (HDR) compatibility and native 4K resolution the UE65JS9500 is almost too futuristic for its own good given the current shortage of native HDR and 4K content. But it's also so damn brilliant that we'd recommend you save up...

Samsung UE65JS9500: The finest 4K Ultra HD TV around?

 

The heady combination of a 4K picture with high dynamic range images makes this an outstanding television.

Uniquely future-proof ; Stunningly bright images ; Currently unique HDR feature

Curve won’t suit all ; It’s pretty expensive ; Onscreen reflections

Samsung UE65JS9500 review

 

If you value outright detail, this pricey 4K TV might be worth a splurge

Lavishly detailed ; Solid, neutral colours ; Good depth ; Strong contrast ; Clear sound ; Future-proofed ; Easy to use

Bezel can be distracting

Another showstopper from Samsung. Believe it or not, this pricey telly is worth every penny

Samsung UE65JS9500

 

It's become pretty much customary now for Samsung to try and set the TV pace every year by being first to market with its new flagship TV. And the Korean company has thrown everything at the 65-inch Super UHD UE65JS9500 – it has HDR (high dynamic...

Incredible HDR picture quality ; Tizen OS is slick and helpful ; Upgradable connectivity and processors

It's not cheap ; Native UHD and especially HDR content in short supply ; The curve won't suit everyone

Samsung UE65JS9500 (JS9500) SUHD 4K TV Review

 

Samsung's JS9500 is their flagship SUHD 4K 3D LED LCD TV, which includes 10-bit video, supports high dynamic range and has a wider colour space thanks...

Extremely wide dynamic range ; Impressive local dimming ; Superb backlight uniformity ; Reference image accuracy ; Excellent video processing ; Extensive features and upgradability ; Great design and build quality ; Very low input lag

Un-defeatable frame interpolation in 3D ; Limited viewing angles ; One Connect box is noisy ; Expensive

Samsung clearly intend the JS9500 to be their definitive statement on the future of Ultra HD and a demonstration of the kind of performance an LED LCD TV is capable of delivering. We certainly support the idea of using Ultra HD as a way of delivering a...

Samsung UE78JS9500 (JS9500) SUHD 4K TV Review

 

Samsung's massive 78-inch UE78JS9500 SUHD 4K TV not only includes almost every feature you can think of but it also proves just how immersive an...

Wide dynamic range ; Highly effective local dimming ; Impressive backlight uniformity ; Reference image accuracy ; Excellent video processing ; Extensive features and upgradability ; Great design and build quality ; Very low input lag

Un-defeatable frame interpolation in 3D ; Limited viewing angles ; Occasional banding ; One Connect box is noisy ; Expensive

As we mentioned in the introduction, the Samsung UE78JS9500 is more of an aspirational product, with a price tag that will mean it's out of reach for most people. However it does give a tantalising glimpse of our Ultra HD 4K future and many of the...

Samsung JS9500 (SUHD)

 

In 2015, you will have to relate to a bunch of new picture-related concepts. In addition to all the new operating systems introduced by Samsung and competitors, you will see words such as "HDR" and "Quantum Dots”. Samsung has grouped several...

Great picture quality ; No clouding/bleeding ; HDR and wide gamut is promising ; Tizen is a new beginning ; Improved remote control ; Low input lag

Micro stutter ; Tizen has too many bugs ; Curved ; Red spots on panel ; Poor choice of materials for high-end TV

Samsung’s 2015 flagship TV impressed us with great picture quality. It gave us a hint of what to expect from HDR and expanded color spaces but be aware that you need HDR content, which is non-existant right now. The TV had very good backlight...
