Samsung UN65KS9800

The KS9800 isn't attempting to master your home theater—it's here to say you don't even need it. This TV is so beautifully bright and colorful (without detail loss or clipping, a key point), it can fight off any and all incoming ambient light to present a detail-rich picture no matter the environment. If you want to really see the difference between HDR and SDR, this is the TV to buy.

Samsung UN55KS8000

Samsung's KS8000 is an outstanding option if you're looking for blazing bright, colorful HDR performance and don't mind giving up the advantages of full-array local dimming. While its edge-lit backlighting occasionally creates shadow tone aberrations, it's an otherwise stellar performer dressed in a sleek silver suit and polished to a sheen.

Samsung UN65JS8500

The JS8500 is a great performer, but at $3,000 it's pricier than competing models. However, much of what you're paying for is the JS8500's HDR compatibility, something 99% of today's content won't even show off. The "shirring" finish and sleek metal edges also push up the price. But if you're on the hunt for a UHD TV that's exceedingly future-proofed and super stylish, the JS8500 has very little competition.

Samsung UN55KU7000

While they're definitely not the most impressive HDR sets on the market, taken as semi-affordable 4K options the KU7000 series is a solid choice, boasting ample brightness, good color saturation/accuracy, and (mostly) good motion handling. They're a great choice if you're sure you want quality 4K and don't mind a little HDR on the side.

Samsung UN50KU6300

This isn't the TV to buy if you're looking for really impressive HDR performance. It's not very bright, and the added color saturation doesn't extend much beyond standard performance. However, for a slice of all the snazzy new 4K/HDR content out there, the KU6300 won't hold you back—and it looks great playing everything else.
