AND THE BEST FLATSCREEN 4K TV IS

SAM­SUNG HU8500

HWM (Singapore) - - TEST -

Let’s get this straight: there’s re­ally no per­fect 4K TV at the mo­ment. We’ve given the nod to the Sam­sung HU8500 (the one we tested was the 65-inch UA65HU8500KXXS) sim­ply be­cause it made the fewest mis­takes. In short, we noted ex­cel­lent up­scal­ing, very good black level re­sponse, and a good set of smart TV fea­tures. The pretty HU8500’s abil­ity to up­grade its hard­ware shouldn’t be ig­nored too. The Pana­sonic AX800’s im­age qual­ity is equally good, but its UI is be­gin­ning to look dated and its speak­ers are a tad weak. The LG UB980T is also a good TV, es­pe­cially for day­light view­ing; and it has the best 3D per­for­mance. Its slightly weaker black lev­els and back­light con­trol are what held it back. If you don’t need 3D or pre­fer an An­droid UI, the Toshiba L9450 is worth con­sid­er­ing. It has very de­cent im­age qual­ity, though the UI is a bit clunky. For non-hard­core users, its sen­si­ble price tag is an­other big draw.
