Samsung UE65KS9000 User Review

  • Ian1970
    Outstanding
    Review of Samsung UE65KS9000 tv by Ian1970, Sep 15, 2016.
    I recently took delivery of this behemoth. The picture is outstanding with Ultra HD blue rays. Normal blue rays are upscaled brilliantly too - in fact, I can barely tell the difference between full HD and 4K. Contrast levels are excellent, though not as good as OLED - but then OLED TV's are double the price. HD Freeview channels - picture fairly good, though slightly over processed. SD - not great, but then it never usually is. Easy to use. Sound is perfectly acceptable for normal programming, but most people including myself will hook it up to an AV amp or soundbar. There is a optical out for my trusty old 5.1 amp. Smart functions are good. Two negatives - the TV is very heavy - I wanted to mount it on the wall, but I didn't want to take the risk due to its weight. Also, because it is heavy and so thin, it does not seem very sturdy and can flex - so be careful moving it around - i.e. 2 people. Otherwise and excellent product. Shop around, I've seen it as low as £1890 and as much as £2700.
    This item was purchased for 1999 from avdeals.co.uk in 2016. The reviewer still owns this product.
