The TVs were also recognized for their rich and detailed HDR capabilities, slim design and the more intuitive Smart Hub. In addition to earning the top-five spots in the Consumentenbond TV testing evaluation for 2016, this is the seventh consecutive year that a Samsung TV was awarded with a “Best Product” distinction from the outlet.
HD Guru, an American news and reviews website that focuses on televisions, awarded the Samsung UN65KS9800 with a “five out of five” rating, noting, “For anyone looking for the best flat-panel TV money can buy, the UN65KS9800 has to stand as one of the primary considerations.” Of the UN65KS9800’s picture quality performance, HD Guru also shared, “So far, it stands as the best of the 2016 4K Ultra HDTVs we’ve reviewed to date.”

For the Smart TV functionality, T3, a prestigious global technology media outlet, rated the Samsung UE55KS9000 with a “five out of five” rating. The outlet noted, “The Smart TV platform has had a spruce-up this year and there’s now a more sensible system of launching apps and other features along the bottom of the screen.” Of the UE55KS9000’s design quality, T3 also highlighted, “There’s a lot to admire about the design and we loved spending time with it.”
