Samsung has been working on curved TVs recently, but the company still knows how to make beautiful flat-screen TVspanel option.

Not only is it Samsung's best-performing flat-screen TV this year, but it's also one of the most stylish and sexy displays the company has ever made --
Full of all "SUHD" features like quantum dots, HDR, and 4 k resolutions.
While it doesn't quite fit the level of the company's flagship product, js9500suhd, the price of the j8500 is much cheaper and the cost you pay is much cheaper than it is.
The biggest difference is that the j8500 uses an edge

But you are still enhanced. nano-crystal)
Tizen OS smart platform, mini version of one connect and smooth silver finish.
Overall, this is a very shiny package.
But while the j8500 is a great performer, it's priced at $3,000, much more expensive than competing models.
However, most of the fees you pay are HDR compatibility for the j8500, and 99% of the content today won't even show off.
The "shirt" finish and smooth metal edges also pushed up the price.
But if you're looking for a very promising ultra HD TV
The j8500 is proven to be very stylish and competitive.
The series information j8500 series has three screen sizes. There are three screen sizes for the tablet j8500 SUHD Series: 48-inch version (
Samsung un65j8500, MSRP: $2,499), a 55-inch version (
Samsung un55j8500, MSRP: $2,999), and a 65-inch version (
Samsung un65j8500, MSRP: $3,999).
You can find discounts for each of them online, ranging from $1,500 to $3,000.
The j8500 TV is the same except for the screen size.

The tablet j8500 is probably the smoothest and sexiest SUHD option in the lineup --It also knows.
The rear housing is also striking.
Like curvedJS9000, the j8500 has a "shirt" rear finish.
Clean, wavy gray finish is a popular place to depart from the usual charcoal --
Colorful plastic, made a TV that looks as good from the back as from the front.
The j8500 also includes the one connect Mini, a smaller version of the Samsung one connect box.
If you don't know, most of Samsung's products
The Crust 2015 TV comes with one connect or one connect Mini, an external box that holds part or all of the audio of the TVvideo ports (
Connections usually found on the back of the TV).
This can make it easier for home theater to be placed, and if you choose a wall, the externalized port is easier to accessmount the TV.
As for the Mini, it uses a hybrid method that will be high
Priority connections such as HDMI and USB, while retaining options such as component/composite and coaxial on the TV.
On the Mini you will find four HDMI inputs, two USB inputs and Optics (digital)audio out.
Live the components, composites, coaxial and analog audio on the TV.
Finally, like the flagshipJS9500, the j8500 includes Samsung's smart touch control, a curved black remote that includes an on-
Screen cursor, voice recognition, and backlight keys.
Whether you're surfing on a channel, playing with picture controls or browsing a smart hub, it's a great accessory.
Smart Hubs and software get hot: If smart TV needs to do one thing to win people's support, then it's out of the spotlight on the screen.
I mean, they need to be easy to use, neat, and-literally—
The screen has not been covered.
Samsung's Tizen operating system
This aspect of the smart platform is doing well, although it still does not compete with the dedicated third platform --party set-
In terms of ease of use and content access, popular options such as Apple TV, Roku and Chromecast.
When you press the "Smart Hub" button on the remote control, fast
The selection bar pops up at the bottom of the screen.
This is a great starting point, especially since the bar can be customized to reflect your favorite app.
If you're using Netflix or HBO Go all the time, they end up staying at this bar.
If you want to go through the full selection of the app/game, or use a web browser, you have to be full screen, but there is a PiP (picture-in-picture)
Options so that you can at least focus on your programming.
But as a 4 k TV, the real claim of the j8500 for smart TV fame is that it allows you to stream 4 k content from apps like Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, and YouTube.
4 k content is still not much, but it is better than nothing.
At present, thirdparty set-
Top options are still playing catch-up on 4 k streaming-
Even though Amazon's 4 k

A 4 k Smart TV like this is still one of the simplest and simplest 4 k streaming methods.
Samsung's standard software interface does not break this pattern, but it is only used as a user.

There's a lot to do in inch j8500.
Like most TV makers, Samsung has adopted the "trickle drop" effect from its flagship TV to more affordable models.
In this case, the j8500 inherits many of the best aspects of the flagshipJS9500, including the nano-crystal (quantum dot)
Color and excellent Backlight dimming algorithms enhance contrast and help the content pop up from the screen.
I read a lot of content and I was very impressed at the beginning.
For example, our blue light
The light of the Dark Knight looks great, especially when the Crusader of the cloak is in the front and in the middle, serving justice in the satisfying black levels and bright highlights.
I also watched scenes of some themed art films on Netflix: 4 k shots of natural landscapes such as flowers, mountains and oceans.
Even in movies.
The most subtle picture mode
Colorful and vivid without any stripe or loss of detail.
The success of the j8500 is largely due to its HDR compatibility.
The high dynamic range is a content format that is still on the market, but the bits and demos we see here and there are very impressive.
HDR will eventually provide more color and brighter highlights than the current standard requires, HDR-for j8500-
The hardware is ready to give it a big advantage.
But there are also some shortcomings.
Because j8500 is superbright, HDR-ready edge-
LED backlight, all of its light is emitted from the left and right sides of the screen.
This is the case with many modern LED TVs, which often lead to ugly "flash" or edge bleeding in dark, dark scenes.
Fortunately, however, the dimming of the j8500 is good enough, which is not a problem here.
However, a careful audience may notice that there will be a small bright color on the edge of the screen in any given case.
This is not a big problem, but it can be distracting once in a while if you look at things in a mailbox (black bars)
At the top and bottom of the screen.
This is more of a 4: 3 problem (

In addition to the problem from the edge --
However, the LED design of the j8500 is more or less perfect.
Samsung's usual blur/jitter reduction mode Kit complements its refresh rate of 120Hz (
Called Auto Motion Plus)
Generate stable motion performance.
The no-assist performance of the TV is good, but the discerning audience still wants to jump between different motion modes/custom settings from time to supplement the content.
For example, you will want a movie 24 p content setting different from Monday Night Football.
Finally, what about the upgrade?
This term is used to describe how well TV is converted.
Parsing content (
720 p, 1080i or 1080 p)
Fill 4 k screen-
This is a basic skill for almost every 4 k TV as most of the content is still limited to 1080 p or less.
Fortunately, the j8500 is as good as the rest of the Samsung SUHD Series, with only lower performancerez content (

Of course, you 'd better stick to 1080 p in stream or Blu

Before real 4 k content becomes more common, the time pattern is usually enjoyable.
VerdictAs is a member of the Samsung SUHD Series and we expect to be ranked in the top
We are not disappointed with the performance of the j8500.
In addition to a few minor downsides, This TV has delivered on its promise in lush, vibrant colors, a satisfying black level, smooth movement and a clear 4 k resolution. The edge-
The lighting design makes the shade tone and uniformity better and this tone and uniformity may not be appropriate if you like to watch on the pitch
Room in black but everyone else was nice.
But if there is one thing that needs to be really addressed about the j8500, that is the price.
While it promotes excellent performance, content does not take advantage of the real advantages of televisionin-the-hole—
HDR compatibilityfor some time.
Judging by the limitations of today's content, the performance of the j8500 is very similar to options such as the ony X850CandVizio M series, both of which are now much cheaper.
On the other hand, in terms of its slim and sexy design, they have nothing on the j8500.
When more HDR content is available, the j8500 will be put into operation.
It takes today's content to a small touch-up—
Thanks for HDR-
Brightness and color-
While it won't shine completely for a while, it still looks great by today's standards.
If you're looking for a stylish striker
In the face of the options, keep the j8500 in your short list.
