    Samsung KS8500 reviews

    KS8500-Series 65"-Class SUHD Smart Curved LED TV is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Could not be happier! We received out Samsung 65 SUHD curved tv last week, and I have nothing but good things to say about both the product and B & H. The television is absolutely phenomenal, and has a level of clarity that is beyond anything I have ever seen. I couldn't be happier with the tv. B & H was professional and performed exactly as they promised, having the tv delivered on the day it was supposed to and in perfect condition. The price, product and experience with B & H were great, and I will trust them with future purchases. Great job guys!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What an Amazing Display! While I was window shopping at an electronic store, I fell in love with it. I was comparing all the TV's but this one stood out from the rest. First I was tempted to return it because of the price and even without turning it on. But when I turned it on, I knew it was staying. It's worth every penny. Curved is the way to go. What an amazing display!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best TV Ever Outstanding Picture quality. Simple to set up. The only improvement would be a stand rather than legs for better stability in earth quake country.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product This is my third Samsung TV and the picture is great as always. I use this TV with my Harmony universal remote and with one touch I turn on the TV, cable box and sound bar. The only complaint is that the included instructions are not that great. You have to go on line to download the full instructions.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome TV The Samsung 8500 series tv has an awesome picture and sounds good with it's own speakers. The curved screen adds dimension and cuts out glare. Easy setup with the one connect box which eliminates having to get behind tv for every connection. Highly recommended

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome TV! Really like this TV! Only issue I have with it is some mildly noticeable gray streaking in the corners when video is dark. Voice command option isn't all that great so I don't use it. Remote control functions well as a universal remote.
    Date published: 2017-03-14
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Television! I upgraded from a 4k non HDR set I had purchased last year. What an incredible difference, and HDR gaminbg is absolutely amazing on my PS4 Pro and Xbox 1s. Shipping was lightning fast all the way to Alberta Canada.
