Sam­sung HU9000 Se­ries LED UHD Curved Screen TV Re­view (Model UN65HU9000)

NOVO - - PRODUCT REVIEW - Suave Ka­jko

Tele­vi­sion tech­nol­ogy has been ad­vanc­ing at a rapid pace over the last sev­eral years and there are no signs of slow­ing down. It never ceases to amaze me that ev­ery year a new gen­er­a­tion of sets raises the bar on pic­ture qual­ity and at the same time im­proves on the fea­tures of pre­vi­ous year’s mod­els. And I’m not talk­ing about slight im­prove­ments in pic­ture qual­ity - the im­prove­ments have been quite dra­matic from one gen­er­a­tion to the next. Well-equipped TVs of to­day also come jam-packed with fea­tures such as smart TV func­tion­al­ity, 3D pic­ture ca­pa­bil­ity, down­load­able apps, built-in in­ter­net browsers, mo­tion/voice con­trol and curved screens. And let’s not for­get about 4K res­o­lu­tion.

fea­tures

Sam­sung is one of the small group of com­pa­nies at the fore­front of tele­vi­sion de­sign and of­fers one of the most di­verse TV line-ups of any man­u­fac­turer. Sam­sung’s HU9000 Se­ries LED TVs, in­tro­duced in 2014, rep­re­sent the com­pany’s high­est per­for­mance sets, promis­ing the ul­ti­mate pic­ture qual­ity and most im­mer­sive ex­pe­ri­ence to date. In the fall of 2014, Sam­sung sent me the 65-inch curved screen UHD TV (UN65HU9000 model, priced at $4,499) for eval­u­a­tion and I be­gan en­joy­ing it im­me­di­ately. The HU9000 Se­ries of­fers two other screen sizes - 55 (UN55HU9000) and 78-inches (UN78HU9000).

The UN65HU9000 is so rich with tech­nol­ogy and fea­tures, that it might make your head spin. First, it of­fers the pin­na­cle of pic­ture res­o­lu­tion - 4K or 3,840 x 2,160 pix­els. That’s well over 8,000,000 pix­els, or four times the pixel count of 1080p TVs. This amazingly high res­o­lu­tion al­lows for finer de­tails, greater tex­ture and an al­most pho­to­graphic pic­ture. 4K con­tent is still very limited at this time, but Sam­sung did sup­ply me with the UHD Video Pack (CY-SUC10SH1), a 1TB hard drive loaded with 10 movies and even more doc­u­men­taries.
