Review: 9 Series Samsung TV From [A-Z]
If you really care about TV, you probably want a really big one. Now, I thought the 65-inch Samsung TV that was just delivered to my apartment was pretty big, but the guys who brought it to me said it was “mid range.” No matter what you call it now, it’s a big upgrade from my old 40-inch TV, and when people walk into my apartment, they’re blown away by it. It is the 65-inch curved Samsung Series 9 JS9500 4K SUHD TV.
If you want to spend a few thousand dollars on a top-of-the-line TV, you probably already know a few things about them. Nano Color is one of the best things about this model from Samsung. Nano Crystal technology gives you more colors, contrast, and brightness, and as soon as you turn it on, you can see that the images are so clear and sharp.
The curved shape is based on the shape of the human eye, and it does make you feel like you’re closer to the action. The beautiful shape would look great in a room full of designer modern furniture. When you’re right in the middle of the screen, it doesn’t feel like you’re looking at a TV. Instead, it feels like the TV is looking at you, which makes for a great viewing experience. Redefining what it means to watch a curved TV
Out of these, the Series 9 SUHD curved Smart TV is India’s best option. It has screens that are 55 and 65 inches (our review is based on the 55-inch).
Samsung’s new SUHD range has two new technologies: Quantum dot display and HDR 1000. The company says that the Quantum dot display uses a 10-bit panel to show 64 times as many colors on the TV (while other SUHD TVs use an 8-bit panel).
This not only lets you see more shades (like in pictures of sunrises and sunsets or landscapes), but it also makes the colors more vivid.
HDR, the other new technology, is being added to different brands of TVs because it gives images more depth and sharper quality.
HDR 1000 is a step up from “normal” HDR because it has 1000 nits of brightness instead of 500 nits or less, which other HDR-enabled TVs have. When combined with Samsung’s curved display panel, these two technologies make for a much better experience than a standard SUHD TV.
We tested the TV with a Tata Sky HD, an Xbox One, a direct USB playback for audio and video, and online sources that streamed videos.
As expected, the Samsung TV was great at everything, including boosting the resolution of HD content to 4k. But when up-scaled, SD content from TataSky was not as clear as it was on other 4k TVs.
But, from a distance, it was still good enough to see. The curved screen adds to the overall experience, which isn’t very different from last year’s curved TVs, if you saw those.
When compared side-by-side with LG’s new OLED range, the Series 9 SUHD TV holds its own in most test situations.
Even though this is Samsung’s most expensive option, it doesn’t have 3D capabilities.
We don’t think many people use it, but if you want 3D, this is not the right TV for you.
The viewing angles on the curved screen are now better on the 2016 range. This was one of the problems we had with the curved TV range from last year.
Samsung has made changes to both the technology and the look of their SUHD line. Even when it is curved, the TV is very thin and the screen has no edges.
The back is made of brushed metal, which gives it a unique look.
It comes with a new T-shaped stand that attaches to the back of the TV. Not only does it look great, but in a dark room, it makes the TV look like it’s floating in the air.
We like how the Samsung logo in the middle is backlit. It glows while you watch TV, but it doesn’t get in the way.
The remote has also changed in a big way. Samsung has included a new remote called OneRemote. It is a universal remote that can control multiple devices without needing any extra IR blasters.
The design of OneRemote is simple, with only a power button, navigation pad, selection buttons, smart menu, volume, channel change, and a voice command button.
The remote can be set up to work with different types of set-top boxes, game consoles, and DVD/Blu-ray players.
Even though the idea of a simple universal remote sounds good, we didn’t find it easy to figure out how to control the extra devices without a tutorial.
The OneConnect box system is the same as last year’s SUHD series, but the cable length is now longer so that it can be placed more comfortably.
To keep things simple, you only need one cable to connect the TV to the box. The box has HDMI, USB, and optical inputs to connect source devices.
This solves the problem that slim TVs have less ports and that you can’t get to the ports when the TV is on the wall.
In the end, the Samsung Series 9 feels like a step toward the future of TV. This TV is smarter than just having a pretty screen. Brains that let you relax and watch whatever you want in a matter of seconds, and it looks great.
