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.

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.
