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.

                  Just received this unit last night, could not get it set up because we do not have a cable box (straight coaxial cable from the wall) after talking to support tech it was determined that we had to get a box. Called our cable company to request one, could not get one until 03/08/2017, so having to wait until the box arrives to finish setting up.

                      This television is awesome. It has a beautiful picture and because of the lighting you have a great picture in any light. There is on color fade when the blinds are open in the room. Also the TV is not just a smart TV it is a very smart TV, you can speak to it and it will answer you back. I am very impressed with the quality that went in to making such a nice product. I also like the smart remote that works with all our devices. If you are considering purchasing a new TV please take a look at this on you won't be disappointed. The TV we replaced this one for was about 12 years old and although it was a flat panel TV you can just imagine our suprisse at the advancement in technology!!! We have already recommended it to 2 of our friends. Everyone that sees it is really impressed.

                        Best Uses

                          This a great TV. I like the picture quality the most. I tried another brand first, but returned it for this one. The Smart TV functions work great also (no buffering with my WIFI). I dropped the features from 5 to 4 stars because of the remote. The remote is hard to use in a darkened room. The various buttons set flush with the remote so using by touch is difficult. I use a Home Theater with this TV. I do have to use the Home Theater remote for those functions but it works well, The TV setup was easy to accomplish, The apps are working well, I highly recommend this.

                                        This is a very amazing 4K TV - it has the best enhanced HD picture & the 4K Picture is stunning to view. The features it has covers every feature one would want. The remote is super simplistic and did take some time to get good at using it for settings - adjustments. Our former Sansung HDTV control with all the buttons worked also and make adjusting settings easier to perform.
