Spectacular SUHD with 1900 PQI
The television of tomorrow is here today, presenting the JS8500 Samsung’s all-new premium SUHD TV, designed to excite all your senses. Using ground breaking Nano Crystal Technology, the backlight panel emits radiant light to create outstandingly precise and rich colours. Experience a spectacular range of shades, along with the deepest of blacks and most pristine whites that come to life in the most magical way.

Surround your senses and be part of the action
Samsung’s revolutionary Curved TV shows you the finest UHD picture quality, depth and detail a UHD screen can offer. Immersive viewing makes you feel as though you are right in the middle of the excitement. Also, the gently curved UHD screen gives you uniform and balanced viewing from all areas of the screen.

Lifelike viewing with automatic depth enhancement
Flat images come to life for a surreal viewing experience with Samsung’s Auto Depth Enhancer. Your Samsung Curved TV will give you a greater feeling of depth by applying different levels of contrast enhancement to different areas and objects of the screen, making your entertainment more immersive and enjoyable. You truly have to see it to believe it.

The leading Smart TV platform now faster with further UHD streaming, catch-up and games services
Use the latest apps to access the best UHD content on Netflix and Amazon with further providers coming soon. Instant search for content makes it faster to find the programmes and movies you want while you are still watching TV.

UHD upscaling enhances the quality of all of your viewing
Thanks to the Samsung UHD Picture Engine, you can enjoy various kinds of content with near UHD-level picture quality, even if it’s not from a UHD source. Samsung’s innovative processing enhances broadcast TV shows and movies as well as video on demand and more. That means not only does it process UHD sources at crisp 4K resolution, it even converts lower-resolution content to a level of clarity that’s almost like Ultra High Definition.

Peak Illuminator Ultimate for the most amazingly bright images possible without using additional power
Peak Illuminator Ultimate saves energy in black areas and uses this to make bright images even brighter making them more amazing than ever before. This technology uses saved power to create additional brightness.

Your TV and mobile devices in perfect sync
Samsung Easy Sharing makes it easy to share content between your TV and mobile. Whether it’s a fun video or that must-see TV show Samsung Smart TV picks up the signal when your device is close and seamlessly plays the content perfect for the big screen. It works the other way around, too, so you can move about your house while viewing your favourite content on your device.

A more detailed picture made for UHD resolution
Samsung’s advanced UHD dimming technology brings the ideal level of contrast and colour to your UHD viewing. The higher resolution of UHD also means that the picture requires more processing for a highly-detailed image. That’s why Samsung UHD dimming technology has been developed to process black and white as optimally as possible and produce colours that are far more vivid.

Of course, at £999, the JS8500 is hardly cheap even by 2016 standards, but considering its initial asking price was £1,549, a saving of £550 isn't something to be sniffed at. It's the entry-level set in Samsung's premium 4K SUHD series, too, so you get a...
Bottom line Overall, the Samsung JS8500 is a stunning TV that's still a great buy a year on from its initial release. Its picture quality is superb no matter what type of content you're watching, and its excellent suite of catch-up apps means you've always got someth...
2016-11-14 22:50:20
If the spectre of 'another curved TV' isn't welcome, the appearance of this, the most affordable TV from Samsung's SUHD line-up, certainly is. For the UE48JS8500 – available in the US and UK selling for $1,499 and £1,649 respectively – represents the late...
Good Superb colour, Smooth motion, 4K detail & upscaling, Good internal audio...
Bad Black crush, Lacks processing speed, No desktop stand swivel, Separate connections box...
Bottom line Nano-crystals or quantum dot? Call it what you will; the march of LED-backlit LCD TVs continues on this 48-incher with blistering colour to spare, though this decent value SUHD TV is not quite the finished article...
2018-04-06 08:51:38
While the UE48jS8500 has to make do with one of Samsung's One Connect Mini boxes to provide the bulk of its ports, between this and the ports on the TV itself you've got all the modern connections you'll need. This includes four HDCP 2.2-compatible HDMI 2...
2016-11-14 22:50:59
Samsung's been all about curved TVs lately, but the company still knows how to craft a handsome flat-panel option. The Samsung UN65JS8500 (MSRP $3,999, online for $2,999) is not only Samsung's best performing flat TV this year, it's one of the sleekest, s...
Bottom line This top-tier Samsung makes good on its promise, but asks a high price As a member of Samsung's SUHD line, we expected top-notch performance from the JS8500, and we weren't disappointed. Other than a couple of small drawbacks, this TV delivers on its...
2019-12-18 08:10:45
The UE65JS8500 is the 65-inch model in Samsung's entry level SUHD TV range, although take the term entry-level under advisement as typical online prices (November 2015) are around £2,200. For that fairly substantial sum of money you do get some degree of...
Good Great colours, Good contrast, Excellent processing, Tizen Smart TV platform now as good as any, HDR, Low input lag, Future-proof connectivity, Price now very competitive...
Bad Some mild uniformity issues, Weak viewing angles, Haloing present with dimming system...
Bottom line For its current online prices, the 65-inch Samsung JS8500 makes a compelling buy for its combination of great pictures, on-point Smart TV features – including 4K streaming services – and it is relatively well equipped to tackle the future with its HDR sup...
2019-12-18 08:10:45
If you were tempted by our glowing review of Samsung's £5800 flagship UE65JS9500 TV last month, but weren't willing to break the bank to get it, then we have some good news – the Samsung UE65JS8500 could be just the TV for you. The UE65JS8500 belongs to...
Good Pin-sharp picture, Well judged, nuanced colours, Great upscaling ability across the board, User-friendly interface...
Bad Stand could be sturdier...
Bottom line With more sizes, resolutions and competing TV technologies than ever, choosing the right TV for your needs is becoming increasingly complex.However, if you're after big-screen thrills, consider 4K a must-have and can stretch to £3000, we can't think of a...
2016-11-14 22:50:59
The Samsung 65-inch JS8500 is the kissing cousin of 65JS9500 that I reviewed last year. On paper, the JS9500 has a couple of extra features (like full array backlighting), which make it the flagship.Both UHD (Ultra High Definition) TVs deliver remarkable...
Bottom line The JS8500 may not be at the very tippy-top of Samsung's 2015 line of 4K SUHD TVs, but if you don't hanker for a curved form factor, then this 65-inch flat screen model's quantum dot LED TV delivers dynamic picture quality. And it really excels when displ...
2016-11-14 22:50:59
Okay, remember all the times over the past couple of years that we said Ultra HD is about more than just resolution? The jump from an HD to UHD resolution isn't going to be as obvious as the jump from SD to HD, at least at popular screen sizes in the TV r...
Bottom line There's a lot to like about Samsung's UN65JS8500 UHD TV. It offers very good performance for all types of viewing environments, with a highly accurate Movie picture mode that doesn't demand advanced calibration. The new Tizen OS smart TV platform is easy...
2016-11-06 03:24:11
This more affordable 4K LED backlit offering from Samsung has some excellent features. The difference between the JS9000 series is that the screen is curved on the JS9000 and flat on the JS8500. The JS9500 has higher Clear Motion Rate, full array LED back...
Good Contrast, Color, Black Levels are excellent for an LED TVStrong LED edge lighting produces top notch light flowthrough for more threedimensional images images, 4K Up scaling and conversion from HD signals, Game Mode does a great job cutting input lag, Oct...
Bad Side angle viewing for 2D content (degrades at 25 degrees), Even worse side angle viewing for 3D content, AutoMotion Plus really causes elimination of too much natural background blur (but at least it can be turned off), Smart Touch Remote lacks many butt...
2017-11-05 01:46:22
For part 3 (refer to parts 1 and 2) of our review of the Samsung UN55JS8500 4K SUHD TV, we conducted a series of video performance tests to see how well it can scale standard definition source content up to its 4K display resolution. Take a look at some of the test results...

Here we are the day after Thanksgiving, full as a one could possibly be before falling deep into a food coma and I seem to be one of the few people willing to show up because everyone else is apparently too busy doing their Black Friday shopping. Honestly...
Bottom line Another TV that I can easily sum it all up to as “awesome”. I love it, everyone else here who took part in testing it loves it, and we think you would love it to. You just have to be willing to spend around $1500 to get your hands on one. This may be you...

The UE55JS8500 is the 55-inch model in Samsung's curved JS8500 range, there is also the 65-inch UE65JS8500 and the 48-inch UE48JS8500. The JS8500 range is the entry level SUHD TV, which are designed to offer a degree of UHD future proofing. As such they u...
Good Gorgeous design, Great connectivity, Tizen UI is smart, Highly impressive dynamic range, Ultra-low input lag, Generally great screen uniformity...
Bad Some key apps missing from Tizen, Dimming system could be better, Some slight dark screen uniformity concerns...
Bottom line Well it's a thing of beauty, if you value looks, that's for sure. The curve of the screen is quite gentle and the base stand swoops in tandem with it to provide a super-sleek design. The JS8500 also features great connectivity with no less than four HDMI...
2015-09-11 11:18:51
What is the Samsung UE55JS8500? Despite sitting quite high up in Samsung's 2015 TV range, the UE55JS8500 is actually the company's entry-level 'SUHD' model. Its SUHD status means it enjoys a native UHD resolution, Samsung's new Nano Crystal colour technol...
Good Mostly outstanding, next-generation picture quality, Easy-to-use smart TV system, Plays HDR content, and plays it well...
Bad Curved screen can distort reflections, Backlight clouding has to be worked around, Doesn't deliver so potent an HDR impact as Samsung's more expensive JS9500 series...
Bottom line Samsung UE55JS8500 – 3D Picture Quality The UE55JS8500 is a mostly exceptional performer with 3D sources, making it a shame the set doesn't ship with any free 3D glasses. The combination of extreme contrast, high brightness, UHD detailing – it upscales 3D...
2015-09-11 11:18:51
Like the step-up UE55JS9000, the Samsung UE55JS8500 is equipped with a curved screen, 3840×2160 UHD (ultra high-definition) resolution, native 10-bit LCD panel, edge-lit LED backlighting, Nano-Crystal quantum dot technology to achieve wider colour gamut...
Bottom line Samsung seldom put a foot wrong with their TV offerings these days, and in the UE55JS8500 they've crafted an enticing proposition for viewers wishing to board the High Dynamic Range train. The SUHD television boasts superb video processing, fluid motion h...

Samsung always has to go one better.While every other manufacturer seems happy sticking ‘UHD' (‘ultra high definition') loud and proud on its 4K TVs, Samsung's flagship sets gain an extra letter to form ‘SUHD'. Officially, the ‘S' is arbitrary, but ‘super...
Good Subtle and stacked with detail, Striking colours and contrast, Tidy sum of apps, Strong sound...
Bad 3D glasses sold separately...
Bottom line Samsung has served up a screamer, and amazingly it's not even at the very top of the 2015 range On reflection, maybe ‘S' should stand for ‘special.' £2600 might be a high price to pay, but if ever there was a telly worth selling a kidney for (there isn't...
2015-09-11 11:18:51
The UE55JS8500 marks the first of Samsung's three flagship SUHD ranges, comprising nine models in total. Like the brand's Galaxy S smartphone range, the acronym's arbitrary ‘S' stands for whatever you like. Samsung says these sets redefine what TV is cap...
Good Superb detail, Natural, realistic colours, Intuitive, user-friendly OS, Rich, full sound, Lots of apps...
Bad No 3D glasses supplied...
Bottom line Overall, the Samsung UE55JS8500 is a dream to use.Both fantastic to watch and enjoyable to listen to, it is a beauty to behold. Perhaps that ‘S' in SUHD should stand for ‘success'. Or even ‘special'.Read all our Samsung news and reviews...
