No more blurry images during action scenes and sports plays. The TV also has an innovative scanning feature that automatically brightens whites and deepens earth tones. Halo effects are eliminated to deliver stunning and vivid picture quality.
The Smart TV uses voice-activated commands to operate via the microphone installed inside of the remote. Hand gestures are also a new advancement that permits users to navigate through menus to easily find what entertainment options the TV offers.

Sound quality is phenomenal and you won’t have to deal with clunky hardware. Superior sound plays through four speakers installed inside of the panel, but hidden from view. The set uses a 120W speaker system and a built-in subwoofer. Extras include a webcam at the top of the frame that can be disabled when not in use. A full web browser is included and the television has Wi-Fi access. The set is also 3-D compatible.
If you’re looking for honest reviews of the Samsung UHD S9 Series Smart TV, you may want to avoid most online shopping sites. Many reviewers have created spoof reviews about the monstrous Ultra HD set. Reviewers have poked fun at what they consider a ludicrous price tag with jests such as “I was going to fund my daughter’s wedding in Hawaii, but figured this Samsung TV would last much longer” and “Did you see it comes with FREE Batteries?”
Although it’s fun to drool over the 85 inch Samsung set, most people will likely wait for a significant price drop. As one reviewer states, “I’m coming back from the future to write this review and you can buy this TV for $699 in 2015.” If you still want an Ultra HD set, you may want to consider the more cost-effective Samsung UN65F9000 65-Inch 4K Ultra HD 120Hz 3D Smart LED TV and Toshiba 58L9300U 58-Inch 4K Ultra HD 240Hz 3D Smart LED HDTV.
