Our take on the Samsung UN55F9000

by Steve Kindig
Samsung

4K Ultra High Definition — watch it, play it, stream it

Movie theaters have switched to 4K projectors in recent years, and now you can enjoy amazing 4K picture quality at home. Ultra HD TVs with 4K resolution offer four times the detail of 1080p HDTVs. Some major TV makers offer media players so you can download and watch true 4K content for the best possible picture. Netflix® is already streaming some of their content in 4K, and other services plan to offer 4K video later this year.

Samsung UN55F9000

4K Ultra HD TV, Samsung-style

Some things are worth the wait. Samsung's 55" UN55F9000 isn't the first 4K Ultra High Definition TV, but it's definitely the most versatile. It offers the super-sharp 3840 x 2160-pixel picture detail that other 4K TVs do. That's four times the resolution of a regular "full HD" 1080p TV. And Samsung made sure that their video processing, connections, and LED backlight are equally state-of-the-art.

Fantastic 4K picture, no waiting

As Samsung was developing the video processing circuitry for the UNF9000 models, they made 4K upconversion a top priority. True 4K content will be scarce for a while, but that won't keep you from enjoying the spectacular picture this TV produces. Samsung's Super Resolution Engine automatically upconverts any signal to match the screen's 4K resolution. All of your current video sources — Blu-ray player, cable or satellite TV box, game console — will look better than ever.

Samsung One Connect Box

The UN55F9000 includes Samsung's One Connect Box, which has inputs for your video components. A single cable connects the box to the TV, for a clean, uncluttered look. As new 4K standards emerge, the box can be upgraded to maintain compatibility.

One smart solution for easy hookup and upgradability

Instead of connecting your Blu-ray player, cable box, and other sources to the TV itself, you connect them to Samsung's One Connect switching hub, which is included with each UNF9000 TV. It has four HDMI inputs, two USB ports, an Ethernet port, and an antenna jack. A single cable connects this box to the TV, for a clean, uncluttered look.

This year Samsung introduced a clever way to keep their most advanced TVs on the cutting edge. It's called Smart Evolution, and it lets you upgrade the TV's "brain" — its main processor, graphics processor, and memory — to support future formats and features as they become available. It's especially important for a 4K TV, because as new 4K standards emerge, this Smart Evolution design will allow you to replace the One Connect box for an easy upgrade.

Samsung's Micro Dimming Ultimate backlight

While typical “local dimming” LED backlights have only a few dozen controllable zones, Samsung's Micro Dimming Ultimate system has several hundred, producing images with startling realism and depth.

The building blocks of a lifelike picture

Ever watch a movie and struggle to see objects in the shadows? That's because typical LCD TVs have a hard time accurately displaying scenes with both dark and bright areas. It's the TV's backlight that determines how realistic the picture contrast and black levels will look. Micro Dimming Ultimate is Samsung's most advanced backlight technology. It analyzes each frame of video to optimize the illumination over the entire screen surface for each scene. The 55" UNF9000 has 576 independently dimmable zones.

Beauty on the outside, brainiac on the inside

The UN55F9000 is one of Samsung's smartest Smart TVs ever thanks to a 1.35GHz quad-core processor. That's more horsepower than most tablets have. Besides surfing the web you can do things like multitask or use one app while downloading another. Whether your connection is wired or wireless, you can do a quick web search while you watch movies and TV shows, and enjoy TV while you chat with friends and family online. Along with built-in apps for services like Netflix®, Hulu Plus™, and YouTube™, you can download new ones from Samsung's large selection of apps.

Samsung's Galaxy phones and tablets add handheld viewing and control

Samsung's AllShare™ Play lets you wirelessly access and stream content from any compatible device. If you have a Galaxy S3 smartphone or Galaxy tablet, you can share movies, photos, and music via the UN55F9000. Your Wi-Fi® network lets you do things like "toss" photos from your phone or tablet to the screen with the swipe of a finger. Or push streaming video like Netflix movies from device to screen.

Sending content from your phone to your TV is cool, and going TV-to-phone is even cooler. Just download Samsung's Smart View app and use the TV View feature to mirror whatever's on the UN55F9000's screen on your Galaxy S3 phone or tablet. You can leave the room anytime without leaving your entertainment behind. Think of it as whole-house television you hold in your hand.

Ultra-HD 3D (via HDMI 1.4): With Ultra-HD 3D you get 4x the resolution of Full HD 1080p while watching 3D. Samsung The TV utilizes Bluetooth-enabled active shutter glasses (four pair included) for an ultra 4K 3D viewing experience when coupled with a 3D source, such as a 3D-ready Blu-ray player or an HD 3D broadcast from satellite or cable providers (connected via HDMI 1.4). The Samsung LED-LCD TV automatically adjusts the overall picture to provide an optimal 3D effect. The Samsung 3D TV also offers a unique feature that allows you to intensify your 2D viewing experience by up-converting it to virtual 3D. In addition, you can adjust the overall 3D perspective (+/-5) and overall 3D image depth (1-10)

Note: 2010 Samsung IR 3D glasses and3D glasses from other manufacturers are not compatible. Some 3D modes may not be available depending on the format of the image source. PIP, Auto Program, and some Picture Adjustment functions will also be disabled in 3D mode.

Included 3D Glasses (4 pair): The Samsung LED-LCD TV includes four pair of 3D active glasses with built-in Bluetooth. Samsung's 3D Active Glasses (SSG-5100GB) offer a comfortable fit through its lightweight frame and flexible noise- and ear-pieces. The Samsung 3D Active Glasses are powered by a single CR2025 3V lithium coin-type battery (pre-installed). The battery can last up to 150 hours when powered on. The Samsung's 3D Active Glasses provide a viewing range between 6' and 19.5' from the Samsung 3D-ready TV.

Note: If the 3D glasses move outside of the recommended operating distance, the signal from the TV will be disconnected and the display of the 3D glasses will turn off after several seconds. If you lie on your side while watch TV with 3D glasses, the picture may look dark or may not be visible. When viewing 3D video under fluorescent lighting (50-60Hz), you may notice a small amount of screen flickering.

LED Edge-Lighting w/ Micro Dimming Ultimate + Precision Black: Samsung's LED Edge-Lighting technology w/ Micro Dimming Ultimate + Precision Black maximizes the contrast between lights and darks to create a picture that is as true-to-life as possible. The television's white LEDs are arranged along the left and right edges of the screen and a proprietary light guide is used to focus its luminance inwards towards the middle of the screen for a more uniform brightness.

  • Micro Dimming Ultimate: Samsung's innovative Micro Dimming Pro technology scans zones across the image and adjusts brightness to deliver deeper, darker tones and brighter whites. It also eliminates the "halo" effect and any kind of image distortion that can happen with diffused lights. The Ultimate version of this technology optimizes the quality to new heights by scanning 2x the number of zones in the image.
  • Precision Black (Local Dimming): In addition, Precision Black Local Dimming produces an even greater increase in contrast and black levels by dimming individual LEDs behind dark areas of the picture thus making blacks darker without affecting brighter elements of the picture.

Ultra Clear Panel: Sometimes you can't keep sunlight or house lights from shining right on your TV screen. With Samsung's Ultra Clear Panel, you can still get an amazing picture even with reflective light. Ultra Clear Panel absorbs most ambient light and virtually eliminates reflections. Ultra Clear Panel also helps make colors more vibrant with deeper blacks and enhanced contrast for crisper images and excellent shadow detail.

Auto Motion Plus: Auto Motion Plus removes blur and judder from scenes with large amounts of rapid movement to provide a clearer picture. Auto Motion Plus reduces blur so that action movies, sports and video games have enhanced clarity. Advanced panels and unique backlight technology combine with proprietary algorithms to reduce the response time and yield a more accurate image reproduction with faster onscreen motion. Auto Motion Plus can be set to Clear, Standard, Smooth, Custom, or Off.

Clear Motion Rate 1200: Clear Motion Rate (CMR) is Samsung's more comprehensive and accurate measure for how well the LED-LCD TV can display fast-moving images. Previously, motion clarity was expressed simply by the refresh rate, measured in Hz. CMR, however, takes into account all three factors that contribute to motion clarity: panel refresh rate, image processor speed and backlight technology. CMR is measured by determining the thinnest line a TV can display in a moving image. The thinner the line, the higher the CMR rating, and the clearer the picture you'll enjoy on the screen.

  • Panel Refresh Rate (Hz): Samsung's screen refresh rate (240Hz) significantly improves motion detail and resolution by sampling the image more frequently, leading to smoother, more fluid movement.
  • Image Processor (Auto Motion Plus): Samsung's proprietary Auto Motion Plus image processing technology is faster and more responsive than conventional image processors, as it interpolates intermediate frames to smooth out the image.
  • LED Backlight Technology: Samsung's Edge-Lighting Backlight technology regulates output precisely in synchronization with the screen refresh to lessen the time it is lit, reducing ghosting and motion blur.

Wide Color Enhancer Plus: Wide Color Enhancer Plus allows you to see picture color the way the director originally intended. Witness the entire RGB spectrum brought to life on your screen to bring you exceptionally vibrant, yet natural-looking images faithful to the director's original intent.

Picture Control: You can make the following adjustments for an optimum picture.

  • Picture Sizes: You can choose one of the following screen sizes.
    • 16:9: Sets the picture to 16:9 wide mode.
    • Zoom 1: Vertically enlarges the size of the picture and allows you to move the enlarged picture using the arrows on the remote.
    • Zoom 2: Vertically enlarges the size of the picture more than Zoom 1 and allows you to move the enlarged picture using the arrows on the remote.
    • Wide Fit: Proportionally enlarges the picture to fit the entire screen without changing the aspect ratio.
    • 4:3: Sets the picture to 4:3 normal mode with pillars on the left and right of the screen.
    • Screen Fit: See the full image with no resizing when HDMI (720p/1080i/180p) or Component (1080i/1080p) signals are inputted.

This feature allows audio to be sent from the television to your A/V receiver through the same HDMI cable already being used to send audio/video to the television. This eliminates the need for extra cables connected to the TV. ARC allows audio from the TV tuner, Network connection, inserted USB device, HDMI inputs, or any analog connected device to be heard through your ARC compatible AV receiver via the television's HDMI ARC input. The audio from the TV's tuner, network connection, and USB port can pass as Dolby Digital or 2ch PCM. HDMI and analog connected devices will be output as 2ch PCM only.

Note: Both the television and the receiver must support ARC for this function to work properly. When connecting an A/V receiver that is compatible with Audio Return Channel (ARC), connect it to the TV's HDMI 3 input. If connecting a system that is incompatible Audio Return Channel (ARC), an additional audio connection via Digital Audio Out (Optical) is necessary.

SoundShare: The TV is compatible with the SoundShare feature found on some Samsung Crystal Surround AirTrack active speaker systems (sound bars). SoundShare makes a wireless connection between the TV and the speaker system via Bluetooth. Once the two are paired, you can control the volume and mute the sound by using the remote control from the TV or the speaker system. If you change the AirTrack from TV mode to another mode or turned off, the TV audio will resume playing from the TV's speakers. SoundShare can be found on the Samsung HW-F450, HW-F550, HW-F551, HW-F750, and HW-F850.

The Smart Touch Remote's mic even lets you use "natural language" to search for content on the TV, your network, and online apps. To use Voice Control, you must pronounce words and phrases clearly and correctly in the language (English/French/Spanish) you selected.

Simply use your hand to control TV functions by swiping (moving your hand left or right) to navigate and grabbing (closing your hand or making a fist) to select. The motion control function can be affected by user's location, motion posture, or ambient brightness conditions. The built-in camera's angle is adjustable to compensate for the television's mounting height (high on wall or low on stand). Make sure the palm of your hand is open, flat, and facing the TV when making "swiping" movements (not too fast or too slow). If your hand moves outside of the camera's view, motion control will be deactivated. Your room should be well lit room (50-500 Lux) with the light illuminating you. Use the TV's gesture control environment test for best performance.
  • Face Recognition: The built-in camera also recognizes your face and logs you in to your profile, giving you instant access to your favorite apps, your personal Skype address book, and more. In order for Face Recognition to function, the TV's built-in camera will take a snapshot of your face and a thumbnail image of your face will be stored in the TV for logging-in purposes. The TV can store up to five face recognition profiles.
Note: Samsung recommends using the Voice & Motion Control function within approximately 5-13' of your TV. The motion control's range may differ depending on the angle of camera or other conditions. Voice Control performance levels will vary based on the language spoken. Some TV and menu functions will require the use of the included IR remote control.

No going back

Written By Opumayaquem, Philadelphia, PA on Thursday, March 06, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Super sharp, very easy to setup and use, and superb dashboard tying together cable box shows and internet based content (e.g. Netflix, M-GO, YouTube, etc.) The best part is the online integration with 3D content from Netflix, and mobile device control of YouTube searches and videos. The TV picture is without equal (other than the 65" screen).
Pros:
Picture, Internet application integration, Ease of use, Remote control of external cable box
Cons:
Lack of 4K content available currently

Best tv we have ever owned!

Written By Anonymous, Palmyra, VA on Saturday, February 15, 2014
 
The picture quality was the best we have ever seen. The TV was easy to set up and has a lot of features that we are learning to use. The sound is not that great though. We would think they would figure out a better way for the sound. We would give this TV 5 stars, if not for the sound. The salesperson at Crutchfield was very knowledgeable and took his time with us with all the questions we had about TV's.
Pros:
Easy to set up and has a lot of really nice features.
Cons:
The sound is not that good.

Best TV Ever

Written By RobertT, Troy, VA on Wednesday, January 29, 2014
 
Samsung has hit a home run with this TV. Best picture and color I've seen in years. Sound is very good, best I've heard from a thin flat panel. The menu is very easy to use and understand and to navigate to all the things this TV can do. If you are in the market for a new TV, this is the one.
Pros:
4K resolution
Cons:
none

This TV is amazing. The picture quality is incomparable to anything I've seen before on a television. Calling it a "smart tv" is under-estimating it; its genius. Everything I hoped it could do, it does & more. Best purchase made in 2013.
Pros:
Picture Quality Clarity Ease

Excellent picture!

Written By Samsung UN55F9000, Germantown, MD on Tuesday, October 15, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This is the best picture quality of any TV I have had. It is a 4K TV and even though there isn't 4K content yet, it upscales the content up and it looks gorgeous. Noticeably sharper then others. The sound is also very good. There are plenty of smart features and internet hookup without having any extra device. I haven't used much of these features yet to comment on them enough. I bought the TV for the picture quality. Everything else are just extra pluses.
Pros:
Excellent color and sharpness. Also controls to can easily adjust the picture to any way you wish (moe color saturation, less saturation, sharpness, brightness, etc) Lots of smart features I am still learning. 3D capable- cool to have
Cons:
Only one so far- sometimes in the middle of a show, a dialog box pops up telling me I can use voice controls. This is very distracting and I don't need the a dialog box on the TV to pop up to tell me this. Its in the instructions booklet. It doesn't happen very often- but it is annoying. There probably is a way to stop the TV from doing this I just haven't had to time to read everything yet. So not sure.

Huge Step up over 1080p tvs

Written By Dan, New York, NY on Saturday, October 12, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I have a Samsung 55 8000 tv so I had a great tv to compare this to. The 9000 is a huge step up. Not as great a difference between sd and hd but 4k v 2k is pretty significant. If you can get to a best buy to view it go see for yourself. As for buying it, I'd definitely recommend Crutchfield. Savings on tax at this price is pretty significant.

As far as the speakers, I have klipsch 5.1 with sw 112 sub so I have never used the tv speakers.
Pros:
Clarity, load from off time
Cons:
Tv is very heave compared to 8000, tv itself is thicker than 8000 model and the stand on the 9000 is kind of annoying. The stand is actually very deep and needs placement under pretty much the whole tv. I have an ultra slim wall mount so I'll be wall mounting it soon but if I didn't already have the wall mount I'd say go buy one since the stand kind of makes this into a dlp tv, in terms of depth anyways.

How long is the "one box" cable? [ Socalgreenman  Jan 31, 2014 ]
6 answers
  • I assume the question refers to the cable from the box to the TV, and that cable appears to be 8 feet long, or a little longer. It was difficult to measure the cable length in my current configuration. Love the TV! [ STANLEY ALLEN   Feb 05, 2014 ]
  • 14.2 inches [ MARK   Feb 04, 2014 ]
  • I would say it is about 6 feet long. Definitely buy this TV, the picture is absolutely amazing!! [ Christopher   Feb 01, 2014 ]
  • long enough to be entertainment unit friendly but would have to be located near if unit is wall mounted (6ft) [ David   Feb 01, 2014 ]
  • It's 10 feet. But I find this to be an odd question. My first reaction was when I saw this was, go check the warehouse. Unless you asked me the question in order to drive me to your website. [ John   Jan 31, 2014 ]
  • The cord is approximately 10 ft. in length. It plugs into the TV about 7 inches from the bottom, allowing most of that length to be used to get to wherever you wish to hide the box itself. Hope this helped. [ ALBERT H   Jan 31, 2014 ]
does this tv have multiple tuners so i can split the screen and watch two channels at the same time? or picture in picture? [ mark  Dec 16, 2013 ]
2 answers
  • Mark, I.ve got the tv in question and i'll tell you that it's one great tv , because I've got two others that don't even come close. I am still learning about the tv myself as of right now I can't tell you weather it has picture in picture, but it's a great tv. John [ JOHN   Dec 18, 2013 ]
  • Hi Mark...I believe this TV does have multiple tuners, and two channelsat the same time should be a possibility...as to picture in a picture,,Idoubt it, Neither of the two scenarios interest me,,,BUT there shouldbe someone with an answer. Crutchfield is darn good,,but Samsungis a terrible resource!...India or Manila is a joke...I have consideredSamsung Corporate....that might work. If so I would be interested.Good Luck, Adrian W [ ADRIAN   Dec 16, 2013 ]
