Samsung are synonymous with quality performance TVs and this model carries on the tradition. With a slimline design, the thin black bezels minimize any distraction from the on-screen action and ensure that this high end TV complements any contemporary interior. The chassis is home to 4 HDMI ports, 2 USBs, and a couple of useful jacks, but still remains svelte and sleek.
The rich range of hues and shades supplies a limitless luminosity that creates a realistic picture quality. Blacks are deeply black while whites are crisp and clear, and details infinite. The image upscaler creates dazzling pictures without the extravagant brightness required by some models, thus allowing a comfortable, yet exhilarating, viewer experience.
Samsung’s Tizen platform offers functionality with stylish approachability. Netflix, Amazon, and Hula are all preinstalled along with plenty more ready-to-access on-demand services. Controlled via the user-friendly interface, Samsung bring live streaming, gaming, and the drop-dead gorgeousness of the movie theater into your living room.
This larger than life TV is easy to recommend!
This well-designed TV from popular tech manufacturer LG sits equally comfortably on a cabinet or mounted on the wall. Stable, robust, and sleek, the 82’’ model carries itself efficiently and produces an impressive image quality.
Offering rounded velvet blacks, the VA panel allows for a decent contrast level and produces a bright, clean white. We loved the vibrancy of the colors – the HDR really coming through with an inspired luminosity. In ‘game’ mode, the image becomes even brighter, and with the refresh rate of 120Hz, it allows an unsurpassed smoothness of the rolling content. The bleeding is non-existent, and the color tones remain crisp even in the fastest action scenes.
The smart platform is LG’s WebOS, which, as we’ve talked about before, provides a nicely intuitive user experience. With helpful suggestions on the home screen and pre-installed on-demand streaming services, the app store will keep anyone occupied forever.
There’s nothing not to love about this impressive LG TV.
Samsung have done it again – a chic, and stylishly svelte TV that’s perfect for any home. The unobtrusive frame holds the 82’’ screen steady, whether wall mounted or placed on a stand, and the V-shaped feet are well-spaced, keeping the whole unit stable.
You’d be forgiven for thinking you’d been transported to the movie theater as you become immersed in your favorite film. The contrast ratio is outstanding, providing the blackest of blacks, through the full, vibrantly realistic color gamut to crisp, clear whites, and the uniformity across the screen grips you tight. Samsung have designed this to be an impressive games machine, too, making full use of the lower-than-low input lag, smooth-rolling picture, and high responsiveness.
The smart platform – Tizen, welcomes you in, providing an easy-to-use interface that’s friendly and intuitive. Samsung are known for offering a vast variety of high quality apps, so you’ll always find what you want to complement the preinstalled streaming services.
If you’re looking for an 82’’ TV offering value for money and an impressive performance, this model is well worth considering.
