Amazon offering a Major $302 Cyber Monday Discount on A KS8500 SUHD HDR TV
Stephan Jukic – November 27, 2016
Samsung’s 4K HDR TVs in the 2016 SUHD lineup are some of the very best high dynamic range televisions we’ve yet laid eyes on for this year or 2015 and we say this with utter seriousness. All of the 2016 SUHD TVs offer a remarkable performance uniformity that allows even the smallest or “lowest” numbered models to perform with nearly identical levels of display performance, high dynamic range rendering, smart functionality and upscaling capacity.
With this in mind, we can say that the Samsung KS8500 curved 4K HDR TV in the 2016 SUHD lineup is just about as good as its pricier cousins the KS9000, KS9500 and even the flagship KS9800 HDR TV. Aside from the edge-lit backlighting of the KS8500, it offers specs that are remarkably close to those of even Samsung’s flagship model, which costs a lot more.
Thus, the Amazon.com Cyber Monday discount on the 65 inch KS8500 makes it all the more valuable an offering in terms of quality delivered per dollar spent. This 4K TV is now selling on Amazon for the remarkably low price of $1,597.99 for the huge 65 inch model and quite frankly, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better offer on such a top-shelf 65 inch 4K television with full Ultra HD Premium HDR specs priced at this level.
The KS8500 not only offers full HDR color and 10-bit color coverage, it also delivers some of the deepest LCD TV black levels we’ve yet seen in any non-OLED high dynamic range television to-date. More importantly still, like the rest of its 2016 SUHD TV cousins, the KS8500 outputs a stunning level of peak brightness, making its deep blacks look all the more rich when they display. At 1400+ cd/m2, the peak brightness of this model is 400 cd/m2 above the standards stipulated by the UHD Alliance’s UHD Premium standard for HDR TV display.
Yes, the KS8500 comes with the curved display technology we were never really fans of, but in this case, since it’s not being used to justify higher TV pricing, no harm done.
This is a genuinely great Amazon Cyber Monday 4K TV deal and worth looking into if you’re after that serious new HDR 4K TV investment at a decent price.
