Trending in today’s world of competitive technology are 4K Televisions. What better way to watch your favorite game then on a Samsung 4K Ultra HD TV. The Samsung UN55JU6500 is new model for 2015. Its main feature is 4K UHD (Ultra HD) resolution.
It is sized and priced to be a sensible entry to the super-detailed picture that 4K TVs are known for. With 4K UHD resolution you’ll enjoy a picture with 4x the detail of Full HD. Watch and play your way with the advanced Samsung Smart TV platform that lets you quickly and easily access your favorite content.
And it’s not just that the 4K screen has four times the pixels of HD. This set also features advanced video processing and backlighting to ensure outstanding color and contrast. TV makers have basically stopped trying to improve 1080p TVs and are throwing all of their efforts into making sure that their 4K models offer the best lifelike picture quality with all the bells and whistles.
The Samsung JU6500 doesn’t look like a budget TV. It has a nice design with a small half inch charcoal black matte borders, which surrounds the screen. Additionally, the TV is quite thin… about 2.5 inches which is good for wall mounting. The stand is very sturdy, and the footprint dimension is about average.
Edge lit LED backlit LCDs are not the ideal picture technology (even in 4K). However Samsung’s clear coat screen is a big plus. Images are clear and color information is accurate. Over time, some light bleed is likely to occur – noticeable during very dark or black background scenes.
Colors pop very well for an LED TV and Samsung has the brightest LEDs (peak whites) in the industry if you need a very bright screen. The ultra clear panel technology in this screen helps to absorb ambient light… an excellent feature. Lastly, the JU6500 includes a wide color enhancer plus technology for an expanded color pallet.
The JU6500 does not get the new Tizen OS Smart Hub of the top JS models, but instead gets a similar Smart Hub suite to last for years with the same basic design. Samsung hit the mark with their user interface and intuitive navigation. This time around you will see the Game tab as one of the major smart TV pages. The On TV page allows for individual logins. This means different members of the family can have different recommendation settings. This is a big plus for a home with multiple TV users. The Smart Hub for the JU6500 includes a full web browser as well.
The quad-core processor greatly increases the speed of the Smart TV function and browsing. It is a welcome addition since processing speed and multitasking were slow before the upgrade to the quad-core.
The speaker package contains two 10W speakers without a subwoofer. Yet, can still carry a punch without the sub. However the accuracy of sound does tend to get distorted at levels beyond the norm. For premium sound quality I’d recommend the Samsung HW-J550 2.1 Channel 320 Watt Wireless Audio Soundbar (2015 Model) to compliment this awesome 4K Ultra HD TV.
Overall, the Samsung JU6500 LED TV is a win win, and have captured the interest of 4K TV enthusiast all over the country. At around $1000 we think this is an exceptional offering for its value.
Since the inception of 4K TV, 1080p & 720p TV’s are more affordable now than they have ever been. However the disparity in picture quality is very apparent with 4K vs 1080p. In my opinion 4K is the future of television. What do you think?
