Samsung UE49KS8000 review

 

A stunning all-round performance from Samsung's flagship flatscreen TV

Bright screen ; Great HDR performance ; Stunning picture quality across all sources ; Punchy colours ; Plenty of subtle detail ; Stable picture

Blacks could go a touch deeper ; Some 'blooming' noticeable with HDR content

Samsung’s flagship flatscreen delivers a stunning all-round performance

Samsung UN55KS9000 review

 

Flat, 4K, surprisingly affordable and really rather good

Strong design ; Genuine HDR experience ; Good value ; Outstanding SDR performance

HDR backlight issues ; Color striping with HDR ; No 3D support

The UN55KS9000 continues Samsung’s dedicated pursuit of the ultimate HDR experience with its high brightness and powerful color technologies. There are one or two stumbles along the way, but overall no other TV range around today offers the same level...

Samsung UE65KS8000 review: Serious 4K HDR performance for under £1,500

 

A giant UHD-premium TV with great all-round performance - and gamers and sports fans will love it

Gorgeous design ; Great 4K and HDR image quality ; Best-in-class input lag

Best viewed head-on ; Backlighting is visible in a dark room ; No Dolby Vision

In summary, whilst not a world-beater, the Samsung UE65KS8000 is a good all-rounder, suitable for gamers, sports fans and those wishing to dip their toes into HDR. If you’re looking for a king-sized 4K HDR TV for under £2,000, then this is one TV you...

Samsung KS8000

 

This is the second generation of Samsung's "SUHD TVs", a made-up term for Samsung's souped-up LCD displays. S for Super or Smart? Who knows, but the 2016 models come with a revamped version of Samsung's Tizen operating system. The KS models are the...

Good light homogeneity ; HDR and DCP-P3 support ; Picture processing of 4K and HD ; Tizen simpler and streamlined ; Brave choices (no analog ports and new remote) ; One Connect Mini box ; Low input lag

Too few dimming zones affect HDR ; Narrow viewing angles ; Micro-stutter ; Remote feels a little cheap ; Light bleed top/bottom on specific colors

Samsung KS8000 represents upper mid-range in Samsung's "SUHD" line and boasts picture features such as HDR (high dynamic range) and close to full coverage of the DCI-P3 color space. The TV’s slim profile looks great and it will surely fit into most...

Samsung UE65KS8000 review

  (Rating Hidden)

This jumbo Samsung may set you back a pretty penny, but the 65-inch UE65KS8000 offers almost anything and everything you could wish for. As one of Samsung's highest-end TVs of 2016, you'll get top specs, including 4K HDR, but can it deliver the...

Samsung UE55KS8000 review

  (Rating Hidden)

With just the 9-series above it, the Samsung UE55KS8000 is getting mighty close to the top-of-the-range and it has the price tag to match. It certainly shows off its premium prowess with sound quality - there's few which sound better - but it must also...

Samsung UE55KS8000 UHD 4K TV Review

 

If you're a fan of Samsung and want a flat screen Ultra HD 4K TV with HDR, then the KS8000 is essentially their flagship flat model.

Great blacks and contrast ratios ; Impressive colour accuracy ; Effective local dimming ; Excellent video processing ; Good backlight uniformity ; HDR content looks stunning ; Incredibly low input lag ; Attractive design ; State-of-the-art smart features

Disappointing out-of-the-box greyscale ; Occasional bright edges ; No 3D support

That very much depends on your priorities but if you're looking for a high performance Ultra HD TV with a flat screen, then the Samsung KS8000 should definitely be on your short list. The TV is attractively designed and well built, with a great set of...

Samsung UNKS8000 series: The cheapest SUHD isn't a super value proposition

 

Samsung's KS8000 has a lot of things going for it, but its image quality is eclipsed by some less expensive sets that perform better.

The Samsung KS8000 has a good picture for bright rooms, accurate color and superb video processing. Samsung incorporates unique devices and smart home control features, tied together with a simple remote and interface. The design is sleek and minimalist.

It's more expensive than some TVs that perform better. It also lacks analog video inputs.

A bright image and plenty of smart extras will help the Samsung KS8000 gain some followers, but its picture falls short of the competition.
