The Samsung UN55JS8500 is the 55 inch model in the 2015 SUHD line-up from Samsung and is a great combination of design, features and picture quality.  In the US this is a flatscreen model whereas in the UK, it has a curved screen – No idea why there should be this difference, but do be aware – and you may notice the difference in our review video below.

Samsung UN55JS8500 Appearance

This is a truly great looking TV.  It is the entry level model of the SUHD range from Samsung which are their top of the range televisions.  No one is quite sure what the “S” in “SUHD” stands for and Samsung are remaining enigmatic, apparently preferring to create an aura of mystery around this moniker.

Samsung UN55JS8500 SUHD 4K TV Styling Features

Slim and Stylish Brushed Silver Bezel

The styling is high class with a textured brushed silver finish to the narrow bezel surrounding the screen and just a discreet SUHD in the top right corner.  The rear has also been styled with a ridged texture that is quite different but shows great attention to detail.  And the slim T-shape table stand is straight and sleek, again in the brushed silver finish.

Video Review of the Samsung JS8500

Here you can see a great video review of the JS8500 from Marks Electrical in the UK.  Note that, as previously mentioned, the UK model is curved, whereas the US model is flat.

SMART JS8500

With it’s built in SMART TV functionality, you are ready to enjoy streaming 4K content from Netflix and Amazon out of the box.  All you need is a good internet connection and you can connect either by WiFi or by ethernet cable to the LAN port.
Smart Tizen TV JS8500

JS8500 Smart RemoteSamsung have changed their Smart interface this year to one using the proprietary TIZEN system which has a comprehensive and intuitive menu system.  This is much better than their old Smart interface which was a bit clunky.

Added to this, they now have a Quad-Core Processor which provides a more fluid browsing experience and faster response when you want to switch between apps, streaming content and other media inputs.

This is a much more satisfying user experience, letting you access your favorite program choices, live TV, video on demand, apps, and social media in one easy-to-browse navigation experience. (although, it is not as good or intuitive as LG’s WebOS2)

The sleek Smart Remote Control has a touchpad to make navigation easy and quick, lets you give voice commands with the built-in microphone, or use the remote like a mouse and simply point and click.

 

JS8500 Connections

Most of the connections are housed in the Mini OneConnect box that you can position where you like and this has a single cable that goes into the back of the TV –  a neat connection solution – especially if you want to wall mount.

The mini OneConnect box is equipped with 4 HDMI 2.0 ports, (1 DVI, 1 ARC, 1 MHL), compatible with HDCP2.2 capable of 4K at 60fps and 4:4:4 chroma, digital optical out, and 2 USB 2.0 on the side of the box.  This enables you to de-clutter the connections to your TV with a more streamlined approach to making audio and video connections to external TV components such as AV receivers, blu-ray players etc.

On the back of the TV itself are a USB 3.0 port, component and composite in, wired LAN (ethernet), RF aerial input,  a headphone socket and the connection socket for the mini OneConnect box.

Nano Crystal Color

The SUHD range is Samsung’s top end for 2015.  These TVs are equipped with the latest picture technology to squeeze every last drop of  picture quality from the LED panels and will process HDR (High Dynamic Range) content when it arrives later this year.

Nano Crystal Color is Samsung’s version of Quantum Dot technology which gives a brighter, more true to life, picture with a wider range of colors than before.

You also get “Peak Illuminator Pro” which gives greater LED illumination in bright areas of the picture so you can enjoy greater picture detail.

Precision Black improves the contrast with deep black levels and bright whites. And the contrast enhancer improves the depth of vision across the screen.

And even if you don’t have access to much 4K content yet, the built in Upscaling gives enhanced details and optimized picture quality to standard HD programming.

Out of the box, the picture settings are pretty good but there is an effective range of calibration controls that can be used to improve the picture settings.

The standard 2D performance gives brilliant, next to natural colors due to the excellent video processing and deep blacks.

The JS8500 has Active 3D with bright and accurate images but only one pair of 3D active glasses (SSG-5150GB) with the set.  The supplied glasses can be worn over prescription glasses and use button cell batteries which keeps the weight down.

SONY XBR-65X930C Review

Sony have refreshed their range of 4K televisions for 2015 and the XBR65X930C is their top of the range 65” 4K TV. One of the main reasons that you might choose 4K is if you want or need a larger screen — 55 to 65 inches or more, that benefits from the increased detail that your get with higher resolution.

Sony XBR-65X930C Overview

The Sony XBR-65X930C is a fabulous hi-spec model that has the famous Sony wedge shape providing superior sound quality.  You immediately notice the difference – the screen is bordered by two black vertical panels that include powerful front facing speakers and built-in subwoofers. Audio is crisp and clear, thanks to the Sony XBR-X930C’s Hi-Res audio.
This TV oozes quality – sleek and stylish – and can be placed on a unit or wall mounted (nb mounting kit not included, but VESA compatible – take a look at the Chief XSMU ). The supplied table top stand consists of “legs” at either end, but they can be moved towards the middle if you want to place the TV on a unit that is narrower than the TV – this is a well-thought-out design feature.
The 65-inch screen is a great size for 4K viewing. Some may find anything smaller than 60 inches to be too small, but they are also unwilling to purchase one quite as large as a 75-inch TV.  So, with the Sony XBR65X930C, you get the optimum size for your viewing enjoyment.  And one of the benefits of 4K is that you can sit closer to the screen and benefit from a more immersive experience.

Sony-XBR65X930C-65-inch-4KTV-on shelf

XBR65X930C Picture Quality

Sony are renowned for their picture quality – maybe you remember the Trinitron CRT sets? This XBR-65X930C is no exception. Color accuracy is courtesy of another Sony signature technology, the TRILUMINOS display with the widest color range ever and dynamic color correction for accurate, consistent colors. With Edge LED backlight and local dimming your get accurate colours and a bright and vibrant picture.
And thanks to Sony’s X-tended Dynamic Range technology, contrast is also better than ever, getting peak brightness as well as the deeper blacks.
Sony definitely excels in the 4K field, so we should expect that the Sony XBR65X930C will overdeliver and it does not disappoint. The X93C is equipped with the new and powerful 4K Processor X1 engine. The result is heightened accuracy in color and greater clarity, whether it is playing 4K video or upscaling HD video – Blu-ray movies actually look as if they are native 4K

Sony X930C Smart TV

Sony have incorporated the Android smart OS into their 2015 smart televisions so that you can now take advantage of video streaming directly through through the TV. This is very important as streaming boxes don’t currently have 4K capability so built in apps are the only way to access online 4K content. Sony includes apps for Netflix, Amazon Video, Youtube and more are regularly added with software updates.

Sony XBR65X930C-Android 65-inch-4KTV-Smart TV
If you are already an Android user, you’ll find the interface familiar and can add a huge collection of apps, games and content from Google Play
The X930C also includes built in Google Cast which means that you can output photos, video and other media directly from your mobile device and enjoy them on the large screen.

And it is wireless AC compatible for top wireless speed with the newer ac routers as well as having the usual LAN ethernet connectivity for wired connections.

Another advantage you can enjoy is the Voice Search feature which helps you find the program that you want to view.

Recommendation

If outstanding picture quality is important to you, then the Sony XBR65X930C is one of the top performing LED 4K Televisions available this year.  Gorgeous 4K resolution, a dramatic combination of enhanced color and contrast, and powerful front-facing speakers.  All of your HD movies and shows are upscaled to super-clear 4K. Even 4K streaming is enhanced. Add in Sony Android TV with apps, voice search and Google Cast for an ultimate smart TV experience.

This 49 inch 4K TV from LG has an elegant Cinema Screen Design and is fully equipped with Smart webOS and Passive 3D with Magic Remote and 3D glasses included. Brimming with quality and features, the UB8500 Series puts the stunning clarity of Ultra High Definition, or 4K, into more compact screen sizes of 49″ and 55″ at an affordable price.

Our LG 49UB8500 4K Ultra HD TV Review

There is no reason that you can’t get top quality along with a lot of features for a good price. Innovative IPS or “In-Plane Switching” panel technology distinguishes the LG 49UB8500 from the rest of the pack, making it stand out as one of the leaders in entertainment products. In Plane Switching panels give a wider angle of view which makes them ideal for family viewing.

Besides the panel, the LG 49UB8500 has the Tru-4K Engine Pro which will upscale HD content to near 4K quality – in fact you’ll probably find it difficult to tell the difference.

Like an upgrade to content that’s not upgraded – and that means that you don’t need to wait for movies or your other media to be created with 4K technology in order to enjoy it.

LG 49UB8500 4K Ultra HD TV ReviewYou can go ahead and use whatever media that you currently have. LG’s exclusive Tru-ULTRA HD Engine converts your SD/HD video to near 4K standards. This enhancer will ensure that you get great quality every time you watch one of your older technology items.

The High Efficiency Video Coding or HEVC is what’s used with 4K technology. With 4K, it’s going to keep on advancing and keep on creating marvelous ways for consumers to enjoy their entertainment.

This is an important feature for a 4K television. You need the decoder in order to view future content as it changes. It has the new WebOS platform for better tracking of what kind of content that you want to see.

When you watch certain fast paced things on a larger television, such as sports – or you’re playing your video games, you can sometimes get a jump. This television prevents that with the UCI or Ultra Clarity Index that’s just for LG Ultra HD televisions.

And the connectivity with this LG 49UB8500 is fantastic – You get 1 HDMI 2.0,  3 HDMI 1.4, 1 USB 3.0,  2 USB 2.0, together with 1 Component, 1 Composite, 1 Digital Audio Out (optical), 1 PC Audio, 1 LAN, and 1 Headphone socket.

LG UB8500 Benefits

You’ll be able to go through shows and movies for your selection and applications as well. Since each customer is different and has different content they prefer, this model allows users to set up the home screen with media that’s favorited.

Oh – and the Ultra HD Cinema 3D televisions can also turn 2D into 3D for an extra enjoyment – particularly if you have children who love 3D movies.  With built in Passive 3D – just like they use in the cinema – you can enjoy 3D movies right in your sitting room with lightweight theater-style glasses.

Plus, this television comes with a magic remote. Using this remote lets users do more than simply change the channel. You can use it to control your music, the movies you want to see and even games. The remote can respond with touch or voice commands.

And if the 49″ is not quite big enough for you, check out the 55″ model, the LG 55UB8500 here

Picture Quality

This UHD 4K LED TV gives an amazing picture compared to regular HD resolution – it’s a bit like the difference between DVD and Blu-Ray – once you’ve experienced it you can really appreciate the difference. Even though native 4K content is a bit thin on the ground at the moment, LG’s exclusive Tru-ULTRA HD Upscaling engine will make non-4K content look better than any HDTV will.

LG-55UB8500-500

Passive 3D

LG’s 4K TVs come equipped with Passive 3D as opposed to active like in most other TVs. With the higher 2160 line resolution that you get with 4K, passive 3D is ideally suited because there are enough lines to give great resolution. And this means that the glasses required to enjoy passive 3D are much cheaper and do not need a power source. So, no batteries and no charging and no running out of power part way through the movie.  This is the same technology as cinemas use – which means that you can use the 3D glasses that you get from a movie theatre.  If your kids have lots of friends who come round to watch 3D TV, this is a massive saving.

Note: Passive 3D produces a 3D effect by interpolating each horizontal line, presenting one line for you left eye and one line for your right eye.  So this reduces the overall resolution available by 1/2. BUT – on a 4K TV this means you’re only stepping down from 2160 lines to 1080 which is Full HD anyway so the quality is great – particularly on the smaller 4K screen sizes of 49″ and 55″ in the UB8500 range.

Futureproof

One thing to be aware of is that the software in this TV is being updated regularly.  So, when you get it out of the box, one of the first things to do is connect to the internet and run the upgrade to get the latest firmware installed.  A few customers reported issues until they did this, and surprisingly, the LG support team were not fully up to speed on this issue.  But now you know, so you won’t have a problem and will skip any learning curve there.

Internet Connection

TP-LINK-TL-PA6010KIT-AV600-Powerline-Adapter-Starter-KitWhilst on the subject of connecting to the internet, you can connect this LG 4K TV using wifi or ethernet.  Wherever possible, do connect with an ethernet cable as you will get a more stable connection and avoid any interference issues that may occur with wifi.

If your router is a distance from your tv and you don’t want to trail cables around the room, then a good option is a highspeed Powerlink Network Adaptor that uses your electrical wiring circuit to extend your broadband to a new area of the house without additional cabling.  You can get the TP-LINK TL-PA6010KIT AV600 Powerline Adapter Starter Kit, Up to 600Mbps, Gigabit Ports, Plug and Play, Power Saving Mode  from Amazon for about $60 – check current price here

SMART TV

And – you also get a Smart TV as well. The LG webOS is innovative, intuitive, and responsive and is widely considered to be the best Smart tv software interface on the market today.  And if it’s user friendly, you are so much more likely to use it so it”s easy to enjoy premium on-line entertainment streamed directly to the TV.  You can access Netflix, YouTube, Hulu Plus, etc… all streamed directly to your television via wifi or ethernet direct connection.

The LG 55UB8500 4K Ultra HD TV comes with a Magic Remote Control and voice recognition control too. Users love the Magic Remote saying that it is awesome, allows you to move a cursor and make selections like on a computer.  The cursor follows your hand movements and is connected by Bluetooth so you don’t have to point at the screen. It’s simple yet effective.

The HU9000 TV is packed with the latest technology and features

Here are some that you should be aware of relating to the screen and picture :-
Samsung’s curved screen has a  proprietary technology that produces an accurate picture with exceptional color and without picture distortion. And the curve improves the field of view whilst also creating a panoramic effect which in turn, makes the picture seem larger.

Samsung UHD HU9000 Series TVThe Samsung Ultra Clear Panel absorbs ambient light, reduces reflections and lets the picture come to life. It displays deeper blacks and enhanced contrast for crystal clarity, reduces glare, so you can see clearly and enjoy more detail.

Samsung’s UHD Upscaling is a proprietary process using technical wizardry with signal analysis, noise reduction and detail enhancement.  Basically, it adds pixels to the original content to fill the “gaps” and display a beautiful 4K picture.  Behind the scenes this will up-convert SD, HD or full HD content to 4K UHD-level picture quality.

With Wide Color Enhancer Plus, you’ll enjoy enriched colors while watching your favorite movies and shows, even older, non-HD content.

And with UHD Micro Dimming and Precision Black Local Dimming this TV adjusts brightness and contrast to deliver deeper darks and brighter whites across the entire image so you’ll enjoy a crystal clear picture.

Samsung’s Auto Depth Enhancer is a new picture technology that automatically adjusts the contrast for a greater sense of depth so that everything you watch has incredible detail and appears more natural.  And the PurColor feature enables a clear display with all shades of color as nature intended for an incredible picture.

Some UHD terms explained

UHD Upscaling

UHD Upscaling uses a proprietary process including signal analysis, noise reduction, UHD upscaling and detail enhancement to seamlessly upconvert SD, HD or full HD content to UHD-level picture quality.

This means that your existing media will look good on this great screen as the internal processing will enhance the quality that you see.  Samsung’s upscaling does a good job of upscaling the HD content, but bear in mind that the original information is just not there for it to do real 4K so it extrapolates to fill in the missing pixels.  1080p content e.g. Blu-Ray will upscale better than SD quality because there is more information there to start with.  Whilst the algorithm makes a decent guess of what 4K should be, it is obviously not true 4K.  But, having said that, it does work well, and will generate a better picture than standard HD

UHD 4K Standard Future Proof

4K is still in it’s infancy for consumer televisions.  Samsung have made it a priority for their customers to be able to stay current as UHD 4K standards continue to advance.

Not only does the One Connect Box (optional extra) update your TV with the newest software and features, it also makes your TV ready for any and all possible 4K formats.  The HU8550 series TVs are compatible with the One Connect Box for upgrades in the future so that the evolution of UHD 4K will never leave you behind.

UHD Dimming

UHD Micro Dimming precisely scans an incredible amount zones across the entire image and adjusts brightness to deliver deeper darks and brighter whites so you’ll enjoy a crystal clear picture.

Precision Black Local Dimming

Experience sharper contrast with Precision Black Local Dimming. It dims LEDs behind the darkest area of the picture for greater contrast and darker blacks, while the brighter elements remain as bright as they should be. Sit back and enjoy the picture.

Wide Color Enhancer Plus

With Wide Color Enhancer Plus, you’ll witness a wider spectrum of colors on your screen, just like the director intended. You’ll enjoy enriched colors while watching your favorite movies and shows, even older, non-HD content.
