Samsung’s UE65KS8000 is a fantastic 4K UHD Smart television, housed in a sexy bezel-free metallic body that will drop some jaws before you’ve even turned it on. The picture quality is amongst the very best there is, while the sound with inbuilt subwoofers doesn’t let the side down. All in all this is a top telly, and one for the Christmas wish list.
Utilising the latest HDR (High Dynamic Range) technology, the UE65KS8000 produces imagery of the highest standards – with twice the brightness and sixty-four times more colours than a regular UHD screen. The picture is noticeably fantastic, with images coming through in incredible detail and depth – it almost feels as though you’re watching in 3D. The colour spectrum is truly stunning, with over a billion different colours on display. The UHD upscaling of this model is incredible, making even SD content look amazing on the huge 65-inch display – quite a feat. If you were going to be super picky the picture quality does drop off when viewed from tight angles, so if you’re going to watch sports or movies with groups of family and friends, you may need to draw straws for the best seats.
Sleek, flat screen models such as this often produce disappointing soundscapes, but not so the UE65KS8000. There are four down-firing inbuilt speakers with Dolby Digital Plus and they cope admirably with big film scores or booming live concerts. The audio is satisfyingly well balanced but if you do want to add a home cinema system or soundbar there’s the usual digital audio output and HDMI ARC.
With Wi-Fi, an Ethernet port, four HDMI sockets and three for USB, you can’t accuse the UE65KS8000 of a lack of connectivity options. Samsung also has a nifty feature called the One Connect mini box, which houses all your ports for good cable management whilst also allowing you to upgrade the box (rather than the whole TV) to accommodate new connectivity standards as they’re developed. Samsung’s Tizen operating system is easy to use and the Quad-Core processor makes multitasking and navigating channels a breeze, while Smart Hub allows you to get online to access apps and streaming services such as YouTube, Netflix and Amazon Instant Video. Finally, the easily-programmed supplied Smart remote permits you to control all your devices with the one handset.
Why you should buy it: UK buyers looking for an extremely sexy, massive TV offering next-level picture quality, superb sound and a massive array of cool Smart TV features should stop what they’re doing and give the UE65KS8000 a look.
