Samsung UE55JS8000 review
|Review: November 2015|
In a nutshell: The Samsung UE55JS8000 is a 55-inch Series 8 TV with a flat screen, and is simply the best TV we've reviewed in 2015. With nano crystal technology and a super-bright screen bringing natural colours and incredible shadow detail, it creates the most realistic images we've ever seen on an LED television.
Samsung has given us just what we wanted in time for Christmas - a Series 8 television with a flat screen. The JS8000 is exactly the same as the JS8500 curved TV, but with a flat screen.
Call us traditionalists at S21, but we still prefer flat screens over the new-fangled curved designs, and this JS8000 is the best we've ever seen from Samsung. A top buy - if you can afford it!

Stunning freeview HD images, looks very stylish when switched off, I didn't want a curved screen so chose this, I'm so glad I did, I also paid 1k brand new 5yr warranty, my only dislike is the short mains cable and the one connect box, the latter been great if your hanging the TV on the wall, I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this TV.

What a ridiculous comment.
This was one of the few flat screen options from Samsung, which you bought and now state would be better curved.

Plain daft - if you want curved buy curved don't complain about a flat screen not being curved.
