  • High Dynamic Range support
The Samsung UE65JS9000 is a 65-inch TV with edge LED lighting. As well as a native 4K resolution, it also supports HDR playback and runs on Samsung’s shiny new Tizen-based operating system. In terms of design it’s relatively simple, with a silver frame that accentuates the screen’s curve.

We’re pleased to report that it delivers a genuinely next-generation viewing experience that’s tough to live without after you’ve seen it. The impact of HDR is irresistible, though we need to stress that there’s very little HDR content in existence. Colours look incredibly vivid and dynamic, yet natural, making non-HDR clips look lifeless by comparison. It retains a spellbinding amount of shadow detail, while dark shots and picture areas also look splendidly black. There is a touch of backlight clouding, however. 3D picture quality is great too, and you can use the screen for gaming.

Audio performance is fairly average in comparison. The down-firing speaker system does a good job of making sound appear locked to the correct parts of the screen, and delivers a large-scale soundstage. Dialogue is generally clear and authentic sounding too, though there’s a lack of detail in the treble register, and the bass register can start to sound congested and overwhelmed when the going gets tough.

Price: £3,999
