A Closer Look

  • Everything looks super-sharp, no matter the source.

    A Closer Look
  • Stay in touch.

    A built-in camera pops up for easy Skype™ sessions with family and friends, or for controlling your TV with gestures. When it's not in use, the camera stays hidden to keep the beautiful, clean curve of your TV.

    A Closer Look
  • It's like you're there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable Picture Bought this TV last December and the picture quality is incredible. The sound is OK but then I have a Samsung surround sound which enhanced the sound beautifully. There are plenty of features if you want them but I find the cursor a little erratic when accessing the internet. Other than that it's the kind of thing you would expect from Samsung, brilliant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TOP NOTCH Being an avid movie & sports watcher this Curved UHD TV delivers way above my expectations. Picture quality is awesome, so awesome you sometimes feel your watching 3D as the picture comes to life. Immersive to say the least. So many features allow more fun than just watching TV with the Apps web browser built in camera. Thank you Samsung for making this TV. Anyway I'm off to watch my new telly now. Go get yourself one of these you will not be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good product My Review The smart hub is not senior friendly, not the best to hold and operate in aged hands and fingers The product finish does not help in this aspect. .I would require double the siize in an easily handled softish grippable case, is there such a thing ?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best TV i have ever owned A fantastic television I cannot believe how good the picture is. Connecting Xbox One and Sky HD just shows how good the pur colour is and deep blacks. I would recommend this tv just make sure you spend some decent money on an HDMI cable. Transformers Age of Extinction is 3D is a must to watch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding television The picture on this television is just absolutely lush. Even without 4k, normal HD and blu ray images are crisper, brighter and more vibrant than before. My only gripe is the lack of 4k content available in the UK to stream at the moment, this is not anything against the TV itself, its hard to find anything bad to say. love the curve, this does seem to be a hot topic for debate as to whether it actually improves the viewing experience. For me it just gives the whole Tv a more sexy look...I love it!! Delighted with my purchase.
