      Comments about Samsung 78" Black Curved Panel LED SUHD 4K Smart HDTV:

      Sorry I meant to write terribly. As in, I'm terribly impressed, in fact blown away with this piece of technology. Calling it a TV is just an a complete understatement. It is also an insult as this machine is just so much more. Our old Samsung 55" had performed admirably for 6 years and has now been relegated to the bedroom but we were missing the smart element that this model performs in the easiest way possible. Out of the box set up is pretty much a matter of seconds. The in built picture modes are excellent and with the smart controller changing anything is simple. All the built in Apps and quick access to Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime etc really make this system buzz. If you haven't watched Narcos or Orange is the new black in 4K it is a life changing experience comparable to but exceeding the launch of HD. We opted for the curved design and it is absolutely beautiful. In fact this piece of equipment surely is the future of home electronics, we just don't yet realize it and we've only scratched the surface of its capabilities, oh and by the way its really good for watching TV........

      • Did not meet expectations

        Comments about Samsung 78" Black Curved Panel LED SUHD 4K Smart HDTV:

        I am really disappointed this year in the delivery by Samsung. So far I had two different sets of the KS9800 and both of them did not handle motion flow really well and have very bad local dimming issues. Fast moving scenes causes the picture to look digitalize. During normal viewing, at times you can see little bright spots flickering. TV has issues with the Auto HDMI connection and every time it detects a new HDMI, it overrides your previous settings.

              Whatever the cost is of this TV --it is worth it. No glare!!! Viewing from all angles and the picture is spot on!! User friendly and the sound is good with just the TV speakers. Added surround sound and it is even better. Everything you would want from a TV. Words just can't describe the viewing experience. Love this TV!! No regrets!

              Great upgrade from UN65JS9500

              By 

              from RI

              Pros

              • Bright display
              • Realistic color

              Cons

                Best Uses

                  Comments about Samsung 78" Black Curved Panel LED SUHD 4K Smart HDTV:

                  Love this TV! I had the UN65JS9500 which is also a great TV.

                  Here are the advantages of this TV over the 2015 model:

                  1. Much Better Viewing Angles.
                  2. Much Brighter than last year.
                  3. Local dimming as good as last year, with some deeper blacks; however zones seem less than last year (maybe it is me) I don't know how to count /test individual zones.
                  4. Love the new Software. Connects all your HDMI devices seamlessly. Very easy to use, fast and very user friendly.
                  5. Noticed due to the the "moth eye" the screen has much less reflections than last year.
                  6. Only Quad Core processor vs last years 8 core; however it seems faster and smoother (doesn't matter).
                  7. IOT - TV connects to smart devices; however this feature is not active yet which I am not happy about (says coming this summer)

                  Disadvantages - Reasons not to upgrade from 2015 UN65JS9500

                  1. No 3D (I could care less about this; however, some of you may).
                  2. 2016 Only has Quad core processor vs last years 8 core (though this is also an advantage, see above)
                  3. No Camera; however I never liked or used the Camera
                  4. Can purchase last years model for less money, possible Firmware upgrade to new 2016 software.

                  After spending more than 2 days with this TV, I will update this review.

                      Comments about Samsung 78" Black Curved Panel LED SUHD 4K Smart HDTV:

                      TV works great with 4K downloads, 4K DVD's, Blu-ray DVD's, and Standard DVD's. It does not upscale cable TV HD channels very well. They are equal to or less than what you see on your HD 1920X1080 TV. The HDR function is great if the DVD you are watching was generated using HDR. If you watch a standard HD TV channel using HDR, the color is not accurate and does not look very good. I could not connect my Cable TV coaxial cable to my AV Receiver and then back to the TV because the TV would shut-off after 30 minutes. I now have the Cable TV coaxial cable plugged directly into the Samsung TV box. I now run a digital optical cable from the Samsung TV box to the AV Receiver to get the high quality sound. Using the work-arounds, the TV has great color, wonderful contrast and high resolution when using 4K, Blu-ray, or standard DVD's, plus 4K downloads from Netflix

                          Received my 65 inch KS 9800 this week. Picture quality is sharp. Streaming 4K looks great. Overall the TV is a work of art. Tv has crisp black levels and impressive brightness. Amongst the best tvs on the market. Only set back is the expensive price tag, overall I would say it's worth it.
