Amazing picture quality, although the sound isn't quite as impressive
Samsung has come up with another excellent UHD 4K television with fantastic, next-level picture quality, decent speakers and a ton of cool Smart TV features to wow your friends.
The sleek Samsung UE65KU6000 has a fabulous non-curved screen replete with all the latest image technology. HDR (High Dynamic Range) looks marvellous, and with UHD Dimming and PurColour pictures come through in striking contrast, with a vibrant colour palette and stunning levels of clarity. The darker areas in particular are impressively detailed. The four-step UHD Upscaling brilliantly enhances standard resolution content, sprucing up old movies to wondrous effect.
The two 10 W RMS speakers cope well with mid-range frequencies but struggle with the extreme ends of the sound spectrum. Although dialogue comes through clearly, booming, heavy-stringed movie soundtracks in particular lose their dramatic impact. Fortunately you have digital audio and HDMI ARC outputs to plug in a soundbar or home cinema system.
Samsung Smart TVs have a reputation for being packed with excellent features, and the UEKU6000 continues this welcome trend. There’s an inbuilt Freeview Tuner, while extended PVR allows you to pause and record live TV with a USB storage device. Console-free HD gaming will keep the gamers amongst you entertained for hours. The Tizen operating system is intuitive and Smart Hub delivers an excellent range of online services such as Netflix and Amazon..
- Fantastic picture quality
- Plenty of features
- Brilliant upscaling
- Sound could be better
- Could do with a fourth HDMI slot

Why you should buy it: The picture quality is simply brilliant but the UE65KU6000 definitely needs a soundbar for the optimum cinematic effect. UK buyers will not be disappointed with its amazing range of features.
