Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the money Needs to be piggybacked into old one connect box so you end up with 2 boxes as this one needs to plug into a usb port which most TV's with the one connect box don't have. Then you need 2 controls to operate tv. One to operate tv and one to operate the evolution kit effectively making it an overpriced set top box for a TV that by all rights shouldn't need one

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Important Read this first Do not buy this product without reading the Samsung forums and other reviews on this product. What the website does tell you, is that if you use this product it needs to work through your correct Sek3500 or original One Connect box, as it needs to go through an HDMI connection. I have a 55HU9000W and it was the so called top of the range and all connections went through One Connect box, so to use this item, I need to connect it to my original One Connect box. So in reality it is a very expensive media player connected to my One Connect box.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Class action n should be taken Wow, so surprised to see such a name like Samsung could mislead so many people and get away with it. Just for the record I own a UA65F9000 which I paid $4500 from JB HiFi 3 years ago. I thought I bought a 4K not so. Im in the market for a 4K player and now a new TV. Will not be dealing with Samsung for the rest off my life.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DOESN'T WORK WITH F9000 Wish I had looked at the other reviews first before purchasing. Although the user guide states compatibility with the F9000 UHD TV, as with the other reviews, it does not connect to the TV, there is no one connect port they are using a newer EVK port to hdmi. It has to be plugged into the other one connect box so you still need the remote control for that one to turn the TV on and off. So much for buying a future proof 4k/UHD TV, it cant even play 4k because it doesn't have the right codec. Ripped off! But I'm sure its great for TV's with a hdmi port on the TV.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a true evolution kit. As people have said its an addition to your current box not a box upgrade. Takes one more nic, one more power. Doesn't work with logitech remotes so need 2. No hardware upgrades so still tied to original/sek2500/sek3500 features depends on what you connect it too. . Shouldn't be called a sek4500 at all. Turns into $$$ media box. Next tv will not be samsung .(have about 6)..

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It is what it is We got two, for older TV's for the kids playroom and our master bedroom. The only reason we got it, now all the tvs work the same (the new Q7, and the other 4k TV, the two older models) Works fine on a plain non upgraded 2012 or 13, 7100, and 8000. No upgrade or evolution kit on either one! We wanted control of Netflix, Amazon, etc, with the updated profiles and controls due to kids. Picture quality is fine with us and the older TV's, the weather and news for us, 4k is not that impressive anyway. Kids won't notice anyway, Disney does not look any different. What is REALLY disappointing, the remote has no IR codes that can be copied (say to Logitech Harmony Remotes, tried multiple ways) Open forum post on Logitech Harmony forums. For this kind of price, for a media player that is not 4k, this is INEXCUSABLE. Almost as bad as that assinine volume warning everytime I turn up the volume on my note 8. If that warning is present on the Note 10, I will NOT be buying anymore Samsung phones. No "do not show this again" on the volume of the Note 10, no Note 10. Maybe a patch can be released to allow IR control of the SEK 4500 by other remotes. For the price of this thing, a patch for IR codes is the least you could do If I can get the Harmony hub to control it, I would give it better rating, and better review

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Info on something Samsung can't or won't explain I purchased a UA55F900 UHD tv with the hope of watching 4K when it was transmitted. Hope turned to joy when Foxtel began transmitting in 4K last year. I upgraded my Foxtel box and to my suprise the info on the tv screen said it was not compatable with my TV. After confusing and contraditory communcation with Samsung and much research I discovered the original One Connect Box did not have HDMI 2.0 capability. Samsung assured me that an SEK4500 would fix the problem but with a bit more research found that unless you had a SEK3500 it would still not work. Samsung were not helpful at all. I have now purchased a second hand SEK 3500 and guess what! I can now get 4K. No thanks to Samsung
