Video: TV Contrast Ratio
by Steve Kindig

Learn about contrast ratio — what it means for a TV's picture quality, and how to use contrast ratio numbers when comparing TVs.

4K TV resolution is the next big thing in HDTV technology, but what does it mean? Crutchfield expert Steve explains how 4K gives you 4 times the resolution of 1080p, and how that affects the detail and depth you experience as you watch.

The F8500 series plasma TVs from Samsung are the finest they've ever made. In fact, at the recent Consumer Electronics Show, while OLED and 4K TVs were grabbing the headlines, the F8500 series was definitely the most talked about "real world" TV.

Samsung's 4K Ultra HD TVs offer four times the detail of 1080p TVs. Plus, Samsung made sure that their video processing, connections, and LED backlight are equally state-of-the-art. And they made 4K upconversion a top priority so your 1080p sources will look better than ever.

Samsung's JS9000 4K TVs offer the same color technology and Smart TV features as their top-tier 2015 models, but in smaller sizes that fit into more rooms. These gently curved models come in 48", 55" and 65" sizes.

Samsung's JS9500 4K SUHD TVs are their top models for 2015, and for good reason. They give you incredible detail, amazing contrast, and the latest in Smart TV technology.
