The Samsung UN65HU9000 makes the leap into curved 4K LED TVs, and it’s an impressive leap. This model has all the high-quality features you’d expect, including a Smart Touch remote, 4K upscaling, a quad core plus processor, Active 3D, and four HDMI 2.0 inputs. The screen is curved to help improve side viewing angles and to better immerse you in the viewing experience. We were impressed with the deep, vibrant colors and the crisp contrast, thanks to the powerful LEDs that bring out the black levels and peak whites. While the side angle viewing has improved from earlier Samsung 4K models, there’s still room for more improvement, but we expect Samsung is working on that.
