Samsung 8000 and 9000 Series TVs review

Samsung chops its 2016 TV range into affordable and expensive product lines which come with, sometimes-haphazard, price increases. At the top are the 8000 and 9000 series models.

​The Top 6 TVs in 2016

Over the past few months we’ve reviewed most of the best TVs on the market. Here we summarize which you should buy next and why. All of these are 4k Ultra High Definition TVs which support High Dynamic Range (unless otherwise stated). They will last you for years. All prices listed are for the 55-inch variants for the sake of comparison and also because it’s both a “sweet spot” price point and size.

​Review: Hisense’s amazing ULED TV beats Samsung’s entire range

It all started back at the Australian Grand Prix. We spent a day walking past an amazing TV display in the Paddock thinking they were OLED TVs thanks to their amazing colour reproduction and, what appeared to be true blacks. Only later did we find out this would be Hisense’s new TV range and that it would cost a fraction of what the major brands charged. Since then we’ve seen Hisense all over Formula 1 thanks to its Red Bull team sponsorship and the recent European Championships football tournament where banners surrounded every match played. We’ve finally spent the last two weeks finding out whether our early impressions were justified and the answer is a resounding yes.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
