Samsung 2014 4K Flat Screen TV’s

Samsung have a wide range of 4K televisions released in 2014. There are curved screen sets and more traditional flat screen sets. It can be a bit confusing to differentiate the different ranges so we have produced a summary of the main features available and what is included with each so that you can make a more informed decision before you buy.

So, if we start with the Samsung 2014 flat screen ranges, these are the HU 6950 and the HU 8550.

There is one slight anomaly in that, Samsung also released the HU6840 for the Black Friday sales and this model is currently still available. With a very similar specification to the HU 6950, apart from the remote control, the HU6840 model is selling approximately $100 below the price of the equivalent HU 6950 model. You can read our comparison here.

So, getting back to the two main ranges, perhaps the most significant difference is that the HU8500 is a 3D television, with Active 3D, whereas the HU6950 does not have 3D.

To make it easier to appreciate the features of each range, we have summarised them in the table below.
