New for 2013-2014. Samsung’s top of the line, first generation of 4K Ultra HD TVs from Samsung. A 4K Ultra HD TV provides 3840 x 2160 resolution, which is four times the resolution of Full HD. This allows you to sit closer to a larger TV and get the immersive movie theater experience. Most movie theaters now use a 4K projector, so in effect you will have movie theater resolution in the home. The Samsung UN65F9000 4K 65-inch LED backlit TV is also 3D ready and comes with 4 pairs of Active 3D glasses. It includes Samsung’s best Precision Black Local Dimming with the Micro Dimming Ultimate LED edge backlight technology. It uses special edge mounted LEDs to enable the controlled lighting of variable size areas. This feature was seen on last year’s highly rated F8000 Series of 1080p TVs. This provides for better picture, deeper blacks, and contrast whether watching 2D or 3D. With this HDTV you can use the included 3D glasses with 3D Blu-ray players, and watch 3D specific programming as they come available on cable and satellite. The Ultra Clear Panel eliminates reflections, and boosts the contrast ratio. Included on the UN65F9000 4K is 1200 CMR (clear motion rate) anti-blur technology along with 120Hz to provide blur free, clear motion. This 4K Ultra HD TV has several new ways to interface with the TV, including Gesture control (using your hands), and voice control. Its built in camera has face recognition to bring up your profile, or use Skype. DLNA CERTIFIED┬« connectivity lets you remotely access music, video, and photos. The 4K display has over eight million pixels of resolution (regular 1080p HD has only 2 million pixels).

To assist the Smart TV functions, the remote control has a touchpad, and a microphone (for voice commands).

Smart-Review Commentary: For 2013-2014, The 65-inch UN65F9000 4K is Samsung’s first generation LED 4K TV and comes fully loaded. This model is almost identical to the F8000 Series except that it has 4K resolution. 4K Ultra HD resolution will give you 8 megapixels of screen, versus only 2 megapixels in regular HD. This is the future of TVs and in the next couple of years, 4K will be the new standard, just as 1080p are now. 4K Ultra HD is the same resolution as the movie theater, and will give you a more immersive experience, as the pixels are 4 times smaller, and you can sit much closer to the TV. Native 4K content is just emerging. Sony sells a 4K player which can download movies, Youtube already has 4K content. Netflix has announced 4K content in 2014, and we expect others to follow. Samsung Includes the One Connect Box which allows only one cable to connect to the TV, and to allow for future 4K upgrades as they become available.

Some other notable features are a Quad Core Processor, which will greatly speed up the Smart TV features, allow multitasking, and allow new features. Includes 4 pairs of 3D glasses. The Micro Dimming Ultimate adds special algorithms and scanning technology to give you a better more uniform picture with higher contrast, and can make letterbox bars inky black. This is Samsung’s best version of edge local dimming. Samsung has added many new ways to communicate with your TV. Voice control (you control your TV by speaking commands), Gesture Control (move your hands to change things on the screen), and a touchpad on the remote which allows you to change channels, change apps, voice control, or use the web browser. The F9000 4K comes with two remotes, a traditional universal and a Smart Touch Remote. This is an Evolutionary TV, which means that it can be upgraded in the future to new 4K standards as they emerge (future proof). The UN65F9000 4K has received excellent reviews. We believe the Samsung UN65F9000 4K to be one of the top 4K Ultra HD LED TVs for 2013-2014 and is a SmartReview Top Pick.
