Samsung UN55KS8000


The KS8000 series reviewed here is currently Samsung's least-expensive SUHD TV for 2016 , promising improved picture quality over the company's cheaper 4K TVs. In our tests its image was impressive in some ways, but not up to the overall level of some...

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.

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...

  (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 KS8000 Series TV Review


These 4K/HDR TVs are some of 2016's most valuable options. Bring your sunglasses!

Samsung KS8000 SUHD 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV Review (UN49KS8000,UN55KS8000, UN65KS8000)


Price: $1,797.99 - $2,799.99 on Amazon

Excellent HDR specs ; Superb peak brightness ; Tizen has improved ; Physically beautiful ; Solid color performance

Weak viewing angles ; No 3D support ; Lacks USB 3.0 ; We’d like full-array LED backlighting

The Bottom Line for the KS8000 is the same as it was in our review of the KS9000. This is an excellent HDR 4K LCD TV, if you haven’t bought such a TV yet, then definitely go for this or the other 2016 SUHD models instead of for their 2015 cousins....

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 KS8000-uhdtv: uitblinker in beeld, geluid en design


De KS8000 van Samsung is een prachtige uhdtv die hdr kan weergeven. Juist die hdr-weergave zou nog wel wat beter kunnen, want de backlight heeft slechts acht dimming-zones. Wel komt de hoge maximale helderheid van pas bij veel licht in de kijkruimte....

Goed contrast ; Prima kleurweergave ; Mooi design ; Lage inputlag

Afstandsbediening kan beter ; Geen koptelefoonaansluiting ; Hdr-weergave voegt weinig toe

Test : Samsung UE55KS8000T, le téléviseur qui assure le spectacle


Ce téléviseur Samsung UHD de 55 pouces fait partie du haut de gamme de la marque. Et s'il n'affiche pas la courbure des K9000, il embarque les mêmes technologies premium capables de délivrer une image prodigieuse.

Offrant de nombreuses fonctions multimédia, agréable à utiliser grâce à Tizen OS et pilotable à la voix, ce téléviseur de 55 pouces vaut surtout pour sa qualité d'image, la profondeur de ses noirs, la générosité de sa palette colorimétrique et sa...

Samsung UE55KS8000: stijlvolle UHD TV met indrukwekkend beeld


De nieuwe KS8000 van Samsung is zowel op designvlak en beeldkwaliteit een prachtige televisie. Door de bijzondere voet met een Y-vorm die ver naar achteren staat lijkt de televisie te zweven boven de kast. Een erg mooi effect. Net als alle andere...

Goed contrast Mooi design Prima kleurweergave Zeer goede beeldkwaliteit via HDMI Zuinig met energie Beeld blijft erg goed zichtbaar bij invallend licht Zeer makkelijk om vanaf smartphone naar TV te streamen

Hoofdtelefoonaansluiting alleen via Bluetooth
