Samsung KS8500 SUHD TV Review: An Investment for the Future

With 4K content becoming more readily available, the time to buy a 4K TV may finally be upon us. But the new format is still a long way from becoming the standard, especially in the wild world of cable television, meaning that any 4K TV bought in 2016 is still primarily an investment for the future.

It’s daunting to pick any consumer electronic device, let alone one that may not live up to its full potential for years. Like most OEMs, Samsung wants consumers to buy into its ecosystem for the coming television revolution. With its latest 8 Series TVs, like KS8500 I spent the last month testing, it’s making one hell of a convincing argument. At $1400 for the 55-inch model, though, it is a serious investment for most people and thus the ultimate question becomes: is it worth it?

Tomiply says:

You’re using Dynamic mode? That’s the least accurate mode. Every TV calibrator out there recommends Movie mode for this TV. If the colours look dull to you in that mode, then it’s just because you’re not used to it. It’s the most accurate mode compared how movies and games are mastered.

Sebas Ramiro says:

That modem is prehistoric, buy your own modem and stop renting.

Chandy Motörhead says:

Hi, what’s the picture calibration of your tv?

Sahebzada Qazi Arshavin Quraishi says:

Seems like it’s a good 4K TV.

Marcus 713 says:

Does it has 3D?

Ashley Clifford says:

Although the picture quality is great you fail to mention light bleed and the back panel separation issue with this range of TVs.

Tinashe Gumbe says:

Is it the Tizen Operating System that’s running on the TV?

Marcus 713 says:

I have one but the 3D glasses i have dont work. DO i have to buy a pair or is it a special pair?

mary madigan says:

What brand of sound bar would you recommend for this TV?

sk8erjon316 says:

Canadian it’s double the price what you pay 1400 n 2 thousand is a steal for this

MrEverisforever says:
