Samsung UE55JS8500 review
|Review: November 2015|
In a nutshell: The 55-inch version of Samsung's JS8500 SUHD television is outstanding. At this size, we can start to appreciate the benefits of the curved screen, and the Series 8 gives us everything we could ask for - from nano crystals to HDR. It's fallen significantly in price since the start of 2015, although it still costs more than £1500. But it's worth it!
The Samsung UE55JS8500 is the 55-inch version of the 48-inch UE48JS8500 we reviewed in detail earlier. Everything is the same, except that at a screen size of 55 inches, we can start to appreciate the benefits of the curved screen, and its disadvantages become less apparent. Hence, we're giving the 55-inch model a full 5 star rating!
Update (November 2015): a new flat-screen version of the Series 8 TV is now available.
