Great picture but software seems lacking.
Posted by: TYTY from: on
The software was reported to be up to date on the TV, but I could not get the TV to allow me to reduce the total channel list to just my favorites. The procedure to do that is well described in the e-manual but the TV did not respond accordingly. Samsung support tried to do it via remote control and could not do it either. They thought the issue might be occurring via my Magnavox DVD player attached to the TV. That should never be the case. On another occasion, I was watching the TV and suddenly it switched to DVD player mode all on its own. I was not holding the remote and the DVD player was off. Other aspects of the user interface with the software functionality struck me as not completely natural and intuitive certainly not obvious, or as direct and simple as I felt they should be. Because these issues arose in the first few days I had the TV, I was able to exchange it for an upgrade to a different brand. I have had no such problems with the new TV, even with the same Magnavox DVD player attached to it in the same way.

Nice screen, technical problems
Posted by: JustinA from: on
The screen is beautiful. I mean really great. The blacks are black, contrast is really good. It's a fantastic TV from the screen standpoint. However, the new Tizen based apps are really buggy. They constantly stop working and you have to reset the TV to get them going again. Also the remote is Bluetooth and it looses pairing all the time. You have to constantly pain the remote over and over again. All in all, I'm happy with the TV but think the software problems should not be happening at this price point.

THE BEST TV ON THE MARKET
Posted by: ai3n10 from: on
I love the OLED's but the 65KS9800 is way more worth the price tag then the OLED. The Full Array Backlighting makes the TV great for ANY lighting environment. around 5 O'clock every day the sun shines into the room and partly hits the right part of the TV. Even with the sun hitting, it makes little to no change to the picture which is AMAZING!! The black levels are also noticeably better then any other TV (besides OLED) that I've seen while pumping out amazing/Vibrant colors. And the NFL on there looks almost better then being there. If you want the best tv for the best dollar, this is the way to go

An amazing TV - bought despite the one negative review. Clearly a firmware update fixed the lines described. Picture incredible. Connectivity excellent. One minor irritant is the if connecting tv to sound by fiber-optic cable, you cannot use tv remote to change volume - have to use sound remote. Rest of system and inbuilt software is great.

While the picture is great, and getting around with the smart hub is easy, the smart hub has went blank on 2 occasions with in the first 2 weeks I had it. I've had it 3 weeks as of this review. The first time the smart hub didn't populate info. Geek squad came back out and reset the smart hub, and set it backup. The second time I called Samsung, and was advised to reset the smart hub, I explained that once that was done I would need help to set up the smart hub again as this was the second time and wasn't sure how to set it back up. So the Samsung agent ask me to unplug the TV and wait 30 - 40 seconds, as soon as I plugged it in the smart hub was back (that didn't work the first time for Geek Squad). The Samsung agent explanation was that its electronic (the TV) and they have glitches sometimes and that maybe I should just unplug and plug the TV once a week. WHAT. If this was a PC I'd say it had a bad hard drive, but may be it just needs and update pushed out, as i was told by a store employee that I wasn't the first person this has happened to. If it continues it goes back. To bad because when it works it great.

Crystal Clear 4K
Posted by: Reactor from: on
Finally purchased my first 4K TV due to the high number of movies being released in 4K form. Use the TV everyday and still amazed at the high quality picture. Blacks are black and colors are vibrant.

Amazing clarity and depth of vision gives me the feeling of being there. With the sound bar the feeling of being there is amplified! Old movies look so much better now and I see details I did not realize were there.

Good TV but has issues
Posted by: astonecold83 from: Danbury CT on
Let me start by saying that I'm huge fan of Samsung TV's but I feel that Samsung dropped the ball this year in performance on their line up's.
I purchased the KS9800 in early July to replace the KS9500 which I had purchased earlier in the year.
First impressions were great. Easy set up, Awesome picture with stunning and bright colors, black levels are excellent and as close as it gets to an OLED, HDR performs great and the Tizen operation system is easy to use and looks good. Since this set is an FALD set, there is not a noticeable amount of backlight bleeding but occasionally you can still see a spot here and there when viewed at an angle. The moth display does reduces glare but doesn't eliminate all the glare.
After 2 days of using this set....I came accross the following issues:
Auto Detect HDMI feature is painful specially when using a AV receiver. I would have the universal remote set up to work with the AV receiver and the DirecTV STB and once the AUTO HDMI would detect a new source, it would override the previous set up and attempt to work with the new source. Tuning off the new source did not default back to the original set up. Which means, if I wanted to use the remote with the AV RECEIVER again, I had to redo the set up. To fix this, I had to unplug the HDMI for other device such the Apple TV so that the remote would keep it's original set up.
Next issue and the most important issue to me is the handling of fast motion. I personally like to have the AUTO MOTION PLUS feature enabled as I do like how life like the a movie can be. Having this feature on will also give you the Soap Opera effect which some like and some don't. While watching the beginning 5 minutes of Fast and the Furious on Blu Ray, I noticed that the set had issues with keeping up with the fast moving and switching scenes. The picture would all of sudden flicker and cause digitalization. To test this out further, I started watching the same movie and scene on VUDU (btw...the VUDU app itself has issues and sometimes doesn't work and you cannot re-install the app and need to do a smart hub factory reset to get the app working again) and the same issue appeared. So I tested other movies and sources like a 4K UHD Blu Ray and Netflix and the issue remained including while watching a normal TV programming like DirecTV.
This for me was a deal breaker so I asked for replacement unit which I received this week. Upon setting up the second unit, I came accross the same issues. For some bizzad reason, this set has issues with handling fast moving/switching scenes which is weird for me as Samsung's promotes that it handles motion well with it's Motion Plus 240. You can turn the AUTO MOTION PLUS feature off but I felt that I was loosing something a feature that I personally want to use.
Other issues that I found included
VUDU App issues and no UHD support
Local Dimming still needs tweaking. The picture can go from bright to dark and bright again depending on the scene. Noticeable a lot during Star Trek TNG opening theme.
The "fast start" feature on this set is always enabled. Previously you could decide if you wanted this feature on or off. By having it on, the TV does boot up faster but it appears that it never shuts down correctly which causes issues with the apps not shutting down correctly.
On occasions there is a noticeable haloing. Very detectable during credit scenes with a black background.
Overall, good and bright picture with great black levels. This TV has great potential but needs some work and attention.
Because of this and some other reasons, I decided to skip Samsung this year and go with the Sony 940D.

Awesome TV... best I've owned
Posted by: nickname from: on
I've had the TV for over a month now and am still impressed. Great picture quality and quick Smart TV functions for Hulu, Netwflix, etc. I wasn't sold on the curve, but have found that it does draw you into the picture - really digging it.
Only unexpected downside I can think of is a bit of reflection on the screen from lights at night or windows during the day (compared to my ancient Sharp LCD). However, for the most part it is totally forgotten when I don't look for it and focus on the amazing picture.
