Samsung UE49KS9000 review
|Review: April 2016|
In a nutshell: The Samsung UE49KS9000 is one of the very best TVs you can buy in the under-50-inch size. It's a real design icon with its slim-edge curved screen and metal stand. Picture quality from this UHD 4K TV is superb, with quantum dot technology and edgelit local dimming enabling a huge dynamic range and wide colour spectrum. It's a superb screen for watching UHD programmes via Netflix 4K and Amazon Instant Video, as well as for high definition gaming, thanks to its low lag times. However, the tight curvature means that the optimum viewing distance is 3 metres, and demands that the viewer be seated central to the screen.
Best buy: Samsung UE49KS9000 from Hughes (£929.00)
For more details, please see our full review of the Samsung UE55KS9000 UHD TV. The 55-inch version is the same as the 49-inch model, except for its size and the amount of curvature (the 49" version is more tightly curved than the 55" version, because the viewing distance is expected to be closer.)

The 55 inch model has been out for a few weeks now, so we expect the 49 inch version to be available within weeks. However, Samsung does seem slow getting its TVs to market this year.

Bought this tv on the 23 July and I must say it's brill, the picture is very sharp indeed takes a little getting used to. The only thing is I wished they made the bezel out of metal like last year's k 9000 model, & the smart remote works much better than last year's just feels a bit plastic. Apart from that, well worth a look.
