Great picture quality, but the curved screen is a flat-out gimmick
3 July 2014
Summary: The Samsung HU9000 has straight-up great picture quality, design and features, but the gratuitous curved screen adds very little to the viewing experience and way too much to the price.
Pros: The UNHU9000 curved 4K LED LCD has an excellent picture with deep black levels, accurate color and great bright-room viewing qualities. Its styling is drop-dead gorgeous, and the curve lends a unique, futuristic look. The feature set is well-implemented and comprehensive, with best-in-class connectivity and upgradeability, a superb remote, and just about every conceivable extra.
Cons: Aside from reducing reflections somewhat, the curve provides no benefit to image quality, and in fact introduces subtle distortions. The HU9000 is also more expensive than most 65-inch 4K TVs, including Samsung's own flat versions. The high resolution is very difficult to discern, especially with non-4K content.
