    Samsung KU6500 reviews

    KU6500-Series 49"-Class UHD Smart Curved LED TV is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 317.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Upgraded from 60inch samsung plasma, well worth it I decided to get this tv upgrading from my previous samsung plasma 60inch, took it home, set it up and this thing is a stud. The upgrading on it makes things look way better. I haven't played much with the settings yet, but I keep it in sport mode mostly. It connected to my wifi easily, and I was streaming 4k videos from youtube within minutes. This really showcases it. I plan on getting netflix next or amazon to check a few more 4k shows. Definately reduced glare from my previous tv. I played tron legacy on blu ray and it looks crazy insane with the cgi used. Big upgrade from the 1080. For the price, this can't be beat, everyone loves it so far as do I.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good TV, Nice Features But Deep Blacks Suffer This is a good TV with a nice resolution, picture, sound and features. I am missing my old Plasma though quite a bit as the deep/dark blacks suffer with this TV. My old Plasma blew this out of the water for sure. The 4k picture though is quite nice but finding content is always a challenge. The remote on this unit is really small and I am not a big fan as it lacks some important functionality. The curve is a nice niche feature but honestly I wish I would have gone with a flat screen as I get bad glare off the curved screen and this is frustrating at times. Overall a decent set but I wish I would have gotten more for what I paid.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This TV Rules!!! This is my fourth Samsung tv that i've bought and my second smart tv. The apps and smart functionality has been updated and makes everything so much easier. Day two of having the television and me and my wife are watch GoT via HBO Go and my son turns off the tv. On old smart tv you had to wait for everything to load and then go back into the app and start over, this one i just turned it back on and it went right back to where we were watching!!! The screen is beautiful and you can see the screen great from anywhere in the room. It links to my bluetooth speaker perfectly as well. My friends have all been wowed and i would recommend this to anyone looking to buy a new tv!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice set, but the curve is not for everyone. We have had the set a couple of weeks. The quad core processor and sound are 5 star. The curve takes some getting used to, my wife says she likes flat better, I like the curve, but, it is not as big a thing as I thought it would be. The unit is attractive, sturdy, and appears to be well made. The size works well in the 20' x 20' room. The remote and user interface are easy to learn. The programs we have watched in HD really show off the back lit led screen. All in all I would buy again. I recommend this TV with the proviso that you make sure your wife wants a curved screen.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow I only had it for 11 days and what an upgrade from my HD plasma tv. The picture is so sharp and being curve enhances the depth. But what really stands out is the remote, it does everything so easy. Heck I should read manual, it might even do more than I am aware of . I just started using it and without instructions and it made sense. It's not a big universal remote, but a simple to use device that runs all the smart icons. I use TIVO for my recording from cable. I just keep getting blown away with this TV. Sound is good, but I added a sound bar for movies.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Purchase I bought a VIZIO 50 and boy it was a waste it was so slow and glitchy so I returned it and got this one - I thought one inch smaller not a big deal, well it kind of is because it is actually 48.5 and it is curved it looks quite smaller than 50 flat. BUT it is absolutely worth it - TV is great and upscaling is astonishing The web browser is very fast! I am using it with ROKU Ultra 4k - it is perfect match colors are wonderful and it is NOT an OLED tv but blacks are quite cool too! Well, I am completely satisfied with my purchase! It works great with Playstation! Even though I would prefer conventional remote control (it is small and nice, but sometimes you want all those buttons right there. I still definitely would recommend this TV

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent New 4K UHD tv FROM Samsung After ten plus years of regular use (at least 4-6 hours every day) our old Samsung LED TV died. If your family is like mine, you understand how difficult it is to go without a TV. We purchased the 55” class UHD TV trying to stay ahead of the technology curve and we couldn’t be happier. Our new Samsung can Wi-Fi into my home network, but I opted for a wired connection. That way we can watch some of the 4K programs available on YouTube and elsewhere. Awesome quality and terrific interfacing with my external sources like a cable box and a sound bar. You can’t go wrong for the price. We love it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this tv. Got this tv about three weeks ago, it was easy to set up and to get going. The picture is great, the best that I have ever had seem. If you are looking for a tv to buy, you should take a look at this one.
