Absolutely love my new 65 inch KS8000! It takes a little bit of tuning to get it just right, but when you do, oh man, it is like nothing else in terms of picture quality, color, sharpness and brightness! I went online and found a good set of calibration recommendations (including white balance and custom color settings, which are indicated below), then I checked/tweaked brightness, contrast, sharpness, color, etc. using the Disney WOW Blu Ray. The results are just fantastic! This is what I ended up with: (Movie Mode) Backlight: 6 Brightness: 45 Contrast: 96 Sharpness: 34 Color: 52 Tint: G50/R50 Digital Clean View: Off Auto Motion Plus: Off Smart LED: High (Low is also good) Dynamic Contrast: Off Color Tone: Warm 2 Gamma: 0 Color Space: Custom White Balance 2 Point R-Offset: -1 G-Offset: 0 B-Offset: 0 R-Gain: -1 G-Gain: 0 B-Gain: 2 White Balance 10 Point 10%: 45, 40, 35 20%: 28, 24, 29 30%: 16, 17, 17 40%: 1, 3, 17 50%: -2, -2, 10 60%: 1, -1, 12 70%: 0, 1, 11 80%: 1, -2, 9 90%: 0, 0, 15 100%: 0, 0, -9 Color Space Red: 30, 8, 2 Green: 26, 48, 6 Blue: 0, 6, 44 Yellow: 51, 51, 7 Cyan: 24, 48, 50 Magenta: 33, 13, 49

Great 4K HDR TV for the price

This is my first 4K TV, and I've had it for a month now. I had to return a TV due to stuck and dead pixels on the top left of the screen. My first impression of the TV is that it has a slim profile and an almost invisible bezel. It has a bright display and 4K content looks great on it. 1080p below looks decent as long as you don't sit too close to the TV. I recommend sitting a certain distance depending on which TV size you have. I also suggest changing some of the settings to your liking; there are some guides online. Turn off the SAMSUNG logo light for a more immersive experience. It kind of bothers me when watching in a dark room. While you're at it, turn off the HUD pop up everytime you turn on the TV. The remote that comes with the TV looks nice. Only issue with it is that it doesn't have an exit button. You have to press return/last or the home key to exit a window. The Apps are buggy at times, you have to hold the return button for 5 seconds to reset an App. The Apps won't load properly and might require a reset. There was an instance when the Home key on the remote won't work. The button underneath the TV doesn't have a Home option so the fix is to turn off the TV, then unplug it for a minute. Another issue is the options in the HUD becomes invisible, like you can select an option but you can't see anything. The fix for this is to reset the HUD under settings. Another problem is the back panel separating from the edges. It's probably due to the glue they used, my second TV came in with a bit of separation but I can live with it since it's minor. The first TV didn't have this issue so it must be a bad batch. The One Connect box works fine, the only reason I could think of not having this built in on the TV is to make the TV thin. I bought this TV for gaming, and I can definitely say that 4K HDR looks amazing. Input lag while on Game Mode is such an improvement from my previous TVs. Overall, I would recommend this TV. 4K HDR is still in its early stages but if you want a TV in today's line-up that is capable of delivering great picture quality then look no further.

Good design, mixed screen performance and flaky software

By 

from San Francisco Bay, California, USA

Pros

  • Bright display

Cons

  • Poor quality

Best Uses

    Great design, mediocre build and picture quality. This is a very light and minimalistic tv. It has little visual weight and fits (relatively for such a large device) unobtrusively into our space. I really like the remote and one box design (though I really wish they would run power through it as well, so you only have one cable out of the display and additionally hollow out a foot so you can route the cable through it. Fit and finish are mediocre (if you look closer at the bezel), e.g. ours came with multiple blemishes. The smart hub interface is better than older TVs, but is lacking compared to inexpensive external options out there. Apps are laggy and buggy (they often hang, features such as CC do not work), so does the entire interface. The tv sometimes hangs with only a power cycle resolving the issue (hint: it would be great to allow a forced restart of apps from the UI, instead of having to get up and unplug the tv). Image quality is very mixed. The screen is bright, colors look good and it generally works well in non-dark scenes, but dark scenes or off-center viewing is pretty bad. Dark scenes suffer from both washed out blacks and very uneven backlighting.

                  Cons

                    Best Uses

                      I looked at other 4k tv"s and this one was definitely the best picture for the money. As far as the features go, I haven"t got to use them all yet. I took away one star because the remote is a little quirky. There are only a few buttons on it and it took a bit of fiddling with it to get to the point where I was comfortable with it. Plus it was half the price of a competitors tv.

                      Cons

                      • sound volume

                      Best Uses

                        Everything worked fine. If I could have had some more personal technical sense, it would have helped me set the Smart TV up. The only con was the sound system and with other soulds I the room is hard for us to hear. We have to put it on 90 to 100 to hear the words. One surprising factor was not the TV, but the wall mounted bracket (not Samsung) was not exactly just a bolt on. So if you are going to mount on the wall, make sure the kit you buy has the right components to fit the model Samsung TV you bought. Programming was good for the apps, but when I went to get the PBS app, they (PBS) have not built an app to work with Samsung's TV, and that required me to hook Amazon Fire TV back up to my new Samsung set. Now it works fine. I wish Samsung would ask PBS to expedite the App so I can clean up my installation.
