65″ MU8000 120Hz Smart LED TV
Samsung’s UN65MU8000 is part of the companies mid-tier line of televisions for 2017. The MU8000 is classified as a premium model, and replaces last year’s premium SUHD KS8000 model. However, the MU8000 is not in the SUHD class which was last year’s top-tier lineup, and has been replaced with the new QLED displays.

The price of 4K Ultra HDTVs have been steadily dropping since their introduction a few years ago. Even models with the latest HDR (High Dynamic Range) technology can be had at an affordable price, including the model under review here – Samsung’s 55″ KU7000 and is currently available for only $899.99.

Samsung’s KU6300 Series is very popular among consumers, and has received very favorable customer reviews at a prominent online retailer. The current 6-Series lineup is available in a whooping seven screen sizes (40″, 43″, 50″, 55″, 60″, 65″ and 70″) with pricing starting at just under $550.00.

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.

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.

Samsung 65″ JU7100 120Hz (240Hz effective) 3D Smart LED TV
Samsung’s JU7100 and JU7500 are the top tier series in their 2015 standard 4K line-up before moving to the premium SUHD series. If you are concerned about picture quality and features of the 7 series versus SUHD series, don’t fret. You will still obtain excellent picture quality and a very good feature suite with the 7 series, although it still will not match the performance and features of the SUHD series.

The JS9000 falls in the middle of this line-up and is the focus of this review.
