Recycling Batteries Responsibly

  • The European Directive on Batteries and Accumulators aims to minimise the impact of batteries on the environment and encourage the recovery of the materials they contain. In the UK, regulations on the recycling of batteries and accumulators (rechargeable batteries) were Introduced in 2009. The Waste Batteries Regulations aim to significantly increase UK collection and recycling of used portable batteries from 3% in 2007 to 25% by 2012, rising to at least 45% in 2016.

  • The battery symbol on a product or on its packaging indicates that the product must not be disposed of with general household waste. Instead, it is the consumer’s responsibility to dispose of their waste batteries at a designated collection point so that they can be recycled. The separate collection and recycling of batteries at the time of dispo sal will help to conserve natural resources and ensure that they are recycled in a manner that protects human health and the environment. A comprehensive list of battery recycling centres can be obtained from: www.recycle-more.co.uk

  • All Samsung products that are subject to the Batteries Directive are compliant with the UK battery and accumulator Requirements. In accordance with national law, SAMSUNG Electronics (UK) Ltd is a member of an approved batteries producer compliance scheme. This scheme collects, treats and disposes of batteries on Samsung’s behalf.

As of Sept 14

Got this despite many bad reviews and all I can say is wow. A couple of things to help you decide. Price is high for this but I wanted to be able tostream 4k as there is still not much content.

The uhd video pack 1 does not work with this. The only thing I can gripe about is how to set it up. The quick set up guide they give you is blurry and hard to read. Once it is done update to latest firmware and you should be good to go. The tv seems much faster and more responsive. The hand gestures have been hard to get used to and arnt as sensitive as the older version.

The 1st Upgrade

I was exited to get this update for my UN55F9000A UHD. After I installed it I found that my portable hard drive wasn't functioning. I'm waiting for this to be corrected as I'm writing this.

I'm happy with the new Smart Hub. It seems to be more user friendly. The new smart remote is also very good, but I wish it was of the same material as the original. This review is only a 1st draft and will be amended as I enjoy my UHD in the coming months. I am not happy about one thing. The up-conversion of content to 4K is not as good as I had hoped with this upgrade. I haven't compared it to the 2014 model, but I don't notice much improvement from the 2013. This needs to be addressed as the competitors do a much better job, at this time at least. I will add more in the future as my portable hard drive issue is corrected and I use more of the features of this wonderful UHD.

SEK 2500U Performance

The 2014 UHD kit did not work properly on 1080P and below resolutions (e.g., very poor/gray blacks and overall lack of contrast) until the new firmware 1140.

3 was released the last week of June. Now that upconversion is working properly, the picture is far superior to what the original F9000 one connect provided. The new processor (Quad Core +) almost doubles the processing power of the original one connect. As well as speeding up the Smart Hub apps, it obviously has a major impact on upconversion. HD Television and Blu Rays are upconverted with significantly more detail, depth, and contrast. Amazing results. I personally would have paid the price of the SEK 2500 for this benefit alone; and it was mainly advertised for providing HDMI 2.0, hev.265, usb 3.0, etc. (which I obviously appreciate for streamed 4k content and hopefully/eventually a 4k player via HDMI 2.0). Netflix and YouTube 4k videos look good; but their quality obviously isn't the same as what Samsung provided on the free demo drive last year. Unfortunately, despite what the manual says that came with the SEK 2500U; there is nothing available during the "change out" or after that allows the files on the demo drive to be converted to something that will play on the new one connect. Only other con is that the current Netflix app does not do 5.1 audio correctly (I'm sure Netflix will "fix" this problem)

1 year warranty!!

Went to buy the SEK-2500U at a Samsung Experience store in London to use with my UE65F9000, but they only offer 1 year warranty. I have a 5 year warranty on the TV that I bought 6 months ago, so I end up reducing the functional warranty by 3.

5 years. If the new box packed up in July 2015 then I end up with a very expensive white elephant in my lounge. I would recommend it if Samsung can get a decent warranty on the new unit.
