More Amazon Black Friday deals: Curved 55 inch Samsung KU6600 4K HDR TV at a huge discount
Stephan Jukic – November 23, 2016
Samsung released its KU6600 mid-range 4K HDR TV back in April of this year for an initial price of roughly $1,300 and even a few weeks ago this fairly high quality 4K semi-HDR TV was still selling for around $1000 in its 55 inch version.
Now, the KU6600 has also been swept up into Amazon’s massive outpouring of 2016 Black Friday 4K TV deals and is being sold by the online retail giant for a final price tag of just $647.99. This comes together due to a BF sale price of $749.99 combined with a $100 Amazon gift card that in effect gives you a sort of $100 discount for buying more stuff from the site itself. Since Black Friday deals are applying to so many cool smaller items on the Amazon.com website anyhow, the extra $100 card will be a useful bonus aspect to this special Samsung 4K TV deal.
As for the KU6600 itself, this is one model we’ve only just begun reviewing but we can already say that it’s one very solid mid-range performer, particularly for fans of HDR console gaming. The KU6600 is very similar to its KU6500 and KU6300 cousins in that it offers superb black levels, some of the best contrast we’ve yet seen in any 4K LCD TV and deliver some excellent color performance. This TV doesn’t quite offer the same full HDR package as its SUHD and KU7000 cousins but it does have compatibility with HDR10 standards and does offer 10-bit color for a much larger range of RGB color values and thus much better display realism.
Then of course there is also Samsung’s excellent Tizen smart TV platform, which is present in this TV in its newest version and gives users of the KU6600 access to a huge range of streaming media apps, Amazon Prime Instant Video, Netflix and many other apps for 4K content streaming in both SDR and HDR.
For a 55 inch name brand HDR TV, this is a fantastic deal indeed and if you want a new but highly affordable 4K TV to replace your old home theater system, the KU6600 is one of the better choices available during Black Friday 2016. Check out this deal right here on Amazon.com’s site.
