A Quick Look at LG’s 55″ UH6550 60Hz Smart LED TV
The UH6550 is part of LG’s 2016 standard lineup up 4K Ultra HD LED TVs. There are four other series in this lineup which include the UH6500, UH6150, UH6100 and UH6090. LG also offers a premium line of 4K TVs known as their Super UHD 4K LED TVs which offer better performance and features.
65″ KS8500 Curved SUHD 120Hz Smart LED TV
I recently did a hands on evaluation of the Samsung 55″ UN55KS8000 and the 65″ UN65KS8500 (this review). Both of these models are part of Samsung’s 8 Series for 2016. Furthermore, both of these models are technically identical. The only true difference is in their respective physical designs – the KS8500 has a curved screen – the KS8000 has a flat screen.

SUHD HDR 120Hz Smart LED TVs
Samsung’s KS8000 is the entry level series of their latest SUHD premium 4K UHD lineup. This new 8 Series is currently available in 49″, 55″, 60″ and 65″ screen sizes. In this review I evaluated the 55″ model; however, this review can be applied to the other models as well since their only difference is screen size.
65″ P Series HDR 120Hz SmartCast LED Display
When Vizio’s first generation of P Series televisions hit the market in late 2014, they were met with mixed reviews from consumers, enthusiast and industry experts alike. These TVs generated reports from users of picture quality and functionality issues (see review of P652ui-B2 here for more info). However, Vizio did work to correct many of the issues via firmware updates.

LG’s 2016 4K Ultra HD LED TVs feature a two tier lineup of standard models and what the company is calling the Super UHD LED TVs. So you may be asking what sets these two lines apart?
65″ X850D 120Hz Smart LED TV
The XBR850D is Sony’s entry level series in their current premium lineup. It is available in 55″, 65″, 75″ and 85″ screen sizes.
When compared to last year’s popular X850C, it does offer an improvement in screen brightness, but it also falls a bit short in a few crucial areas of performance when compared to its previous counterpart. Read on to learn more.
65″ X930D 120Hz Smart LED TV
Sony’s latest lineup of premium XBR displays is heavily focused on HDR (High Dynamic Range) technology for its substantial increase in picture quality when compared to standard dynamic range TVs. HDR brings a whole new visual experience to television viewing in the comfort of your own home in the form of increased contrast with a greater range of peak brightness (highlights) and black levels, in addition to a wider color gamut for a rich and vibrant color spectrum, as well as better picture detail.
Product Spotlight of Sony’s 75″ XBR910C 120Hz 3D Smart LED TV
With the release of 2016 televisions on the horizon, big discounts on all remaining 2015 models are on the way. And if you are looking for a large screen display, and I mean very large, as in 75″ diagonally; then I suggest you keep your eyes on the Sony 75″ XBR75X910C.

See the rankings of what I considered the best TVs of 2015
Last year my top five TV picks for 2014 consisted of three 4K UHD models and two 1080p models. This year my top picks for 2015 contain only 4K models. It’s not that I chose to exclude 1080p displays, it just happens that my favorite TVs were all of the ultra HD variety. This comes as no surprise to me since the best performers in this year’s lineup all contain each manufacturers best technology built in; and lately this has been the trend of manufacturers as they make the transition from 1080p to 4K as their best performing models.
A Quick Look at Samsung’s 4K SUHD 65″ JS8500 120Hz 3D Smart LED TV
Samsung’s SUHD models are the company’s best performing premium lineup of HDTVs. When first released, the SUHD Series only consisted of curved screen models which didn’t appeal to consumers that were interested in flat panel (non-curved) designs.
