More Information

Open a window, see the world

  • The 55-inch, 4K Ultra HD screen on the KS8000 presents UHD content in mesmerizing, razor-sharp detail. With a native resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4 times that of 1080p), this TV will thrust you into the centre of all your favourite movies, TV shows, and live sporting events.
  • Colours are bright and contrast is dynamic, thanks to the KS8000's use of quantum dot technology and HDR1000, which work together to offer the best of both worlds. Quantum dot nano-crystals produce pure white light that allows for more accurate colours, while HDR1000 adds lifelike depth and nuance to things like creeping shadows and bleeding sunsets.
  • Don't say goodbye to your library of 1080p movies and TV shows either. The KS8000 uses an advanced picture engine to present 1080p content in a way that enhances the picture for optimal brightness, colour, and contrast.
  • Motion Rate 240 lets you view every detail of action with an excellent level of motion clarity so when you're watching the big game, you'll see every breakaway, slap shot, and body check without ghosting or motion blur.
  • The Ultra Black feature powers rich contrast full of deep, saturating blacks and bright, lifelike colours even when you're watching TV in a well-lit room. That means lazy summer weekends can be spent binge-watching your favourite shows, even when the sun is slanting in from outside.

Get smart

  • The KS8000 runs on the open-source Tizen operating system, which provides an easy and intuitive interface to share content between the TV and compatible mobile devices, access an ever-growing library of popular apps, and even enjoy multi-screen viewing.
  • The redesigned Smart Hub at the centre of the operating system means an endless stream of interactive content is just a simple button-press away. Once the TV is connected to your home Wi-Fi network you can instantly jump onto popular streaming services like YouTube, Netflix, Vimeo, and CinemaNow.
  • You can also play a large library of cloud-based games without the use of a gaming console, check the local weather, or even browse your favourite social media networks and websites via the built-in web browser.

Connect more

  • Built-in 802.11ac Wi-Fi opens the door to a world of entertainment choices. Just connect to your home network and you'll enjoy content from mobile devices, popular apps, and streaming services. With access to web-browsing and social media, it's also a cinch to keep up with the latest news.
  • The KS8000 also features 4 HDMI inputs, allowing you to connect an array of HD devices, such a gaming consoles, Blu-ray player, and cable box. Additionally, 3 USB ports let you plug in thumbsticks to share things like vacation photos and videos with friends.
  • DLNA certification means you can share audio, video, and photos with other DLNA-certified devices across your home network. So go ahead, wirelessly send your awesome Instagram snaps from your smartphone to your TV and let everyone view them on the big screen.

Other features you'll love

  • Dolby Digital Plus creates a cinematic atmosphere with up to 7.1 discrete channels of hi-fi surround sound. Connect your own home theatre speakers and relive some absolute classics like Jurassic Park. When you hear that thunderous roar of the T-Rex, you'll feel like you're back watching it in theatres for the first time.
  • The included Samsung Smart Control remote uses Bluetooth connectivity, making web browsing and app selection fluid and intuitive. You can scroll and move the on-screen cursor with the touchpad.
  • This TV is ENERGY STAR certified, which means it'll help reduce your energy bills and give your wallet a bit of a break.

Love the TV. The Netflix streaming app comes out crystal clear and 4K content is superb. Not a gamer but hear this is one of the best gaming tv's in it's class. Watching Planet Earth 2 on this tv is a treat.

Awesome TV

What I love about this tv, great picture quality! Good deep blacks and bright colors. Clear and sharp picture. The remote is one of the best I have ever used, it uses only a few buttons to easily control all the features on the tv with most individual buttons doing more than one function. The remote programmed to both my Onkyo receiver and Bell network with ease, push power and everything comes on and can be operated with the tv remote. Smart features work well and act fast. I have both a console and pc hooked to the tv and my tv broadcast signal is wireless, all work great. Console or pc gaming on this tv is exceptional with great picture quality and 120 hz refresh. Once set up a device (which is a breeze) the tv remembers your settings so turning on a device aromatically switches the settings over to it. Their is a very slight brighter area along the very top edge of the screen, so minor I do not notice it. I have it wall mounted above a cabinet and it looks sweet. I have had the tv for several months and are very satisfied for the money.

Great Picture but Wi-fi Connectivity is terrible

Picked up this TV Dec 28-2016 and have been pleased with the setup, the remote and the picture but the wifi connectivity is non-existent to weak. All my other devices (Apple TV, Chromecast) at the site of the TV work fine and my wifi analyzer shows that I have good signal. Have spent a few hours with Samsung support trying to resolve this issue with no luck. I am about 30 feet from my wifi router and the TV and router are on separate floors. I have no issues with any of my wifi devices, anywhere in the house, even at far greater distances. The first Samsung rep old me I had to be within 20 feet for it to work, the second said it must be within 15 feet and the last said the tv must be within 10 feet of the router to have good connectivity. They all tell me this distance is specified is in the user manual. I downloaded the user manual and there is no mention of distance required to router. What is the point of wifi if the router has to be in the same room?? After the last call, they said my only recourse was to install a wifi booster in the same room as my tv or go hardwired (pretty hard for most of us with finished homes). And what does one do if you have three TVS in a home, a repeater beside every TV? They shouldn't advertise a TV as wireles when it has to be within 10 feet of a router.

Great 4K TV!

I have had this TV over 1 month and its the best 4K TV of 2016. The picture is so clear and when using a device that supports the HDR feature, the image will look incredible. With quantum dots nano crystals provide rich image details which make it look like unbelievable due to the details of the picture so sharp and clean. The TV only needed adjusting the settings and nothing more than that.

Terrible Build Quality

Third samsung product in a row that has been a lemon. Never again. I just recently purchased this set and had found out that the rear panel was protruding away from the bezel on both top corners. I thought it was purely cosmetic damage untill I had turned off the light while the unit was on and there was light bleed all over the rear bezel where the rear panel joins. Tv did a whiteout also while playing on the ps4 pro and had to reset it. Terrible build quality for a premium tv! Thinner the set and less material = less quality!

Awesome physical form and picture quality, but weak internet connection intelligence.

I waited several months for this TV to go on sale, and finally got it at a discounted price during Cyber Monday week. Setup was a breeze, the easiest I ever did out 4 flat panels, so far. However, I almost returned it the next day. Problem was a continually loading screen while trying to stream regular (non 4K) content on YouTube and Netflix. It was bad. Beyond bad. I did several WiFi speed tests, and found I had up to 19 Mbps on the main floor where I had this unit. All this while, my older 600 series 1080p Samsung smart TV was streaming like a champ. On day three of owning this TV, I popped back into Bestbuy. The salesperson I spoke to figured I might not have enough WiFi bandwidth, not necessarily a lack of connection speed. On getting back home, I disconnected all devices from our home router, to no avail. Then I tried upgrading my Wifi speed from 25 to 50 Mbps, but the ISP could not do this. Next, I tried connecting an Apple TV box to it, but this unit 'enslaved' the Apple TV under the guise we of 'setup', and the choppy loading screens persisted. Finally, I connected a Chromecast and declined setting it up for the TV to take control of it, and voila, all the streaming problems went away. Now I have the Chromecast permanently connected, and stream via it without any problems. This shows Mr TV is not smart enough to ask only for the required connection strength when streaming regular HD content. The only reason I didn't return this unit was the great discount on a TV with an amazing form factor that blended in with my postmodernist interior design. Regrettably, I have a lowly Chromecast permanently tethered to a gorgeous looking TV.

Stunning picture quality

Samsung UN55KS8000 has an exceptional picture quality. Colors are seen very rich in this TV. Watching 4K and HDR content from Netflix and YouTube are amazing and levels of details and picture sharpness blow your mind away. Smart features (Tizen OS) looks good and moving between apps work seamlessly and without any noticeable lags.

  • from Charlottetown

KS8000 is great

Coming from a older same series number samsung. This is a definitely an increase in visual fidelity. Brights are bright and the darks are pretty dark. The darks may not be as dark as an oled but I dont think its worth the cash to jump to oled. As stated in one of the reviews above the manual is a bit weak. It does not give you any information on some of the new options within the menu that has to do with picture settings. Browser meh i have a laptop who cares. Overall I love it and its probably in the top 3 for tvs.

great picture on TV and 4K player better than expected would advise people to buy this model

Very Good Picture quality, great Smart features!

Picture quality on this TV is very good. I've been watching old X-Files shows on Netflix and there is a noticeable difference in picture quality on this TV as opposed to my old 1080p 50 inch Phillips. The response time is amazing, TV comes on instantly with almost zero wake time. Navigation between cable, YT, Netflix etc. is very simple and quick. Remote Paired without problem with my Rogers cable box, and TV paired easily with my Beats bluetooth headphones. Instantly recognizes my Beats headphones and gives me an option to switch audio from speakers to headphones which is convenient when I want to watch TV late ate night and don't want to disturb the wife. Narcos in 4K on Netflix looks very good, especially the outdoor scenery, very vivid. Remote has a built in microphone for Voice commands but I have not yet explored all that you can do with it. All in all there is a noticeable improvement in picture quality and the Smart features of this TV. Not great for web browsing but excellent for Netflix and YT. Haven't tried a Blu-Ray disc yet but I suspect the picture quality will be very good. Not worth the regular price at Best Buy but well worth it when there is a good sale on. After 4K, can't go back to 1080p.

Great TV, but not the absolute best

I've had this TV for a couple of months now and love it! The HDR and 4K look amazing. Also, the TV looks very sharp and is super thin. However, the motion rate and edge lighting could be better. Overall, this TV is the best in its price range, but there are better ones if you are willing to spend the money.

Not what I expected and somewhat disapointed for price point.

Recently purchased this TV. The paper manual very weak, very little useful info but there is a better e manual on line. The 4K demo picture in store stunning, normal video not so much. Factory video default settings not as good as normal LG HD TV. Fuzzy blurry image and slow refresh rate jerky image in fast moving image. But some menu options can improve. I used Avitar DVD movie to compare between TVs. Difference between TVs was striking, older HD TV much better. Factory default sharpness was zero increasing improved the blurry soft image. There are also settings to improve judder and speed up jerky refresh rate bringing it almost on par with a LG HD TV. I do not know why factory defaults so bad. Would not sync to Visio sound bar on HDMI ARC. Support was no help and said use optical. Optical worked first time. but after multiple tries HDMI ARC eventually did. (Took two days of trying). Netflix works well as does U tube except for the Mr clean ads. But browser is awful. Browser Interface from remote is very akward and does not support flash or some other features so will not play some video or other content from web. For normal HD video content you will not see much difference over good HD TV and perhaps not so good. Also had problems with antenna input. Sending video from sat rx via cable on chan 3. Image was distorted with black bars top and bottom so needed to poke around with settings on zoom to get full screen. You will need to play around with lots of settings to get usable TV. Paper manual very poor use the on line one. To compensate for the awful browser I hooked up a PC. TV displayed PC output OK. Is an OK TV but you will need to invest considerable time to set it up so it is usable. 2nd support call was not returned. Would not buy another one.

This TV is so amazing . 4k blue ray is stunning video games are brought to life on this TV. I cannot say much more then if you can afford it buy it . Much nicer picture on 8000 series then 6000 or 70000. Can't wait for Xbox one s or Scorpio to play some 4k gaming on this beast. Amazing TV.
