Samsung UE65KS9500

 

The £3,800 UE65KS9500 is Samsung's flagship 65-inch TV for 2016. It's chock-full of headline-grabbing features: an unprecedented, HDR-friendly peak brightness of 1,400 nits, a direct backlight system with local dimming, quantum dot colours, a curved...

Samsung 65KS9500

 

Samsung normally makes the first big TV technology splash at every CES by hosting an exclusive, invite-only event two nights before the show actually begins. And it did the same again this year with an event at the Keep Memory Alive Center in Las Vegas.

Superb picture and sound from this pricey curved Samsung...

Superb HDR image ; Notably subtlety in colour palette ; Very detailed ; Smooth motion

No TV yet has delivered quite such an extravagant demonstration of what the Ultra HD, HDR and wide colour spectrum technologies can achieve

Samsung UE65KS9500 review

 

Samsung's flagship UHD/HDR TV sets new standards

Stunning HDR picture quality ; Appealing curved screen design ; Good sound quality ; Effective HDR upscaling

Some HDR backlight issues ; Striping with UHD Blu-rays ; Curved screen distorts reflections ; No 3D support

The UE65KS9500 produces hands down the most dramatic demonstration of what new HDR technology is capable of. Its brightness in particular is unprecedented, which helps it deliver a much fuller sense of HDR's expanded light range and colour capabilities...

Samsung KS9500 Review – SUHD 4K Ultra HD 240MR Smart LED 4k TV (UN55KS9500, UN65KS9500)

 

While not quite the flagship 2016 SUHD 4K HDR TV from Samsung's so-far excellent lineup of models for this year , the KS9500 is definitely a worthwhile contender for any serious home entertainment setup. Offering nearly the same specs and quality as...

Excellent peak brightness ; Superb High Dynamic Range ; Tizen smart OS works wonderfully ; The TV looks great ; Color performance is fantastic ; Deep, rich black levels ; Amazing contrast ; Great motion control performance

VA display panel means poor viewing angles ; No 3D support ; Local dimming is mediocre ; No full-array LED backlighting ; Curved screen adds almost $200 pointless dollars to price

A few minor to moderate flaws aside, the 2016 Samsung SUHD KS9500 delivers some of the best picture performance we’ve seen in any 2016 LCD 4K HDR TV and is only beaten out by a few Full-array LED models and LG’s 2016 OLED 4K HDR TVs . This TV is one...

Samsung UE65KS9500 review: Curved 4K HDR excellence

 

Samsung's flagship television delivers astonishing HDR picture quality - and it's pretty good at everything else, too

Dazzling HDR presentation ; Superb gaming responsiveness ; Effective anti-reflection screen filter

Occasional motion stutter ; Posterisation in some HDR scenes ; Curved screen catches reflections

It might not emerge from our stringent tests with a completely clean bill of health, but then few TVs do – and make no mistake, the Samsung UE65KS9500 is one of the best TVs we’ve reviewed, especially if you can find it cheaper than its original £2,899...

Samsung KS9500 (UE65KS9500) UHD 4K TV Review

 

In our exclusive review we take a look at Samsung's flagship KS9500, which not only has all the features found on their other SUHD models but adds a...

Excellent greyscale and colour accuracy ; Great black levels and contrast ratios ; Impressive local dimming ; Effective video processing ; Good backlight uniformity ; HDR content looks stunning ; Incredibly low input lag ; HDR+ feature is interesting ;...

No flat option ; No 3D support ; Occasional banding on pans

The Samsung UE65KS9500 is everything that you would expect from a modern flagship TV, delivering an irresistible combination of design, build quality, features and performance. The look of the KS9500 is very attractive, with a surprisingly slim form...

Test: Samsung UE65KS9590 (65-Zoll-4K-TV)

 

Zunächst zum wichtigsten Kriterium, zum Bild des Fernsehers. Der Samung bietet ein sehr gutes 4K-Bild und dank des deutlich erweiterten Farbraums ein tolles HDR-Bild mit starken Farben und tollen Kontrasten. Mit der Funktion „HDR+“ können Sie normales...

Tolles Bild von allen Quellen ; HDR+ holt mehr raus ; Satter Ton ; Flottes OS

Keine Zifferntasten an der FB

Fazit: Der Samsung UE65KS9590 überzeugt im Test mit einem sehr guten Bild und sattem Ton – allerdings muss er ein paar Federn bei der Ausstattung lassen, was ihn einen Platz in der Top-Fünf der Bestenliste kostet. Warum das aber kein Beinbruch ist,...
