Our take on the Samsung UN55HU9000

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.

Curved screen + 4K picture detail = more cinema-like TV

Samsung UN55U9000

If you've been to your local multiplex recently, you probably saw a movie in 4K on a curved screen. Now Samsung lets you experience that amazing picture depth and detail right in your living room.

In addition to its super-sharp 3840 x 2160-pixel picture detail, the UN55HU9000's screen is gently curved to provide a slight wraparound effect. The curved surface reduces reflections from ambient lighting on the sides, and also improves image quality for viewers sitting off to the sides.

Together, these features create the ultimate immersive viewing experience, enveloping you in spectacular color, clarity and detail. And unlike last year's curved designs, the UN55HU9000 can be wall-mounted.

Ready for 4K content right now

Samsung made sure that this set's video processing and connections are as state-of-the-art as the screen. The UN55HU9000 is one of the first Ultra HD TVs to include “HEVC” decoding, which means it'll be able to display 4K Netflix® content with no additional gear needed. And this TV will be ready for what's coming further in the future, thanks to Samsung's One Connect Box, which houses the inputs and outputs and most of the TV's processing brains. Simply replacing this box will keep UN55HU9000 owners up to date on Ultra HD format standards as they evolve.

Samsung Ultra HD media player

Samsung's UHD Video Pack media player.

Samsung's UHD Video Pack (sold separately) lets you instantly make the most of your Samsung Ultra HD TV. Only a little bigger than a smartphone, this 1-terabyte hard drive comes pre-loaded with several full-length movies and nature documentaries, all in spectacular full 4K resolution. Simply connect it to the TV using the supplied USB cable and start enjoying the best picture you've ever seen.

True 4K content will continue to be scarce for a while, but that won't keep you from enjoying a remarkable picture. Samsung made 4K upconversion a top priority as they developed the video processing circuitry for the UN55HU9000. Their UHD Upscaling 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.

One smart solution for easy hookup and upgradability

Samsung UN55U9000

The UN55HU9000 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.

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 comes in the box with the UN55HU9000. 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.

Samsung has 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.

Smart TV times 4

Quad Screen feature

The Quad Screen feature divides this TV into four screens. Watch a golf tournament on one screen while searching the web for current standings on another. Then watch a video tutorial to master your swing while navigating your Smart TV panel on the fourth screen.

Tablets and smartphones can run circles around many older Smart TVs, but they can't do all the tricks that the UN55HU9000 can. Samsung's super-speedy Quad-Core Plus processor supports a new Multi-Link feature, which lets you place live TV side-by-side with other apps, like YouTube™ or a web browser — you can browse the web without having to interrupt what you're watching.

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 UN55HU9000. 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 UN55HU9000's screen on your Galaxy S3 phone or tablet. You can leave the room anytime without leaving your entertainment behind. Think of it as a whole-house TV system you can hold in your hand.

Video Features

Ultra-HD 4K Resolution w/ UHD Upscaling: The Samsung HU9000 series LED-LCD TV has a display resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 (4K) and will display all video at that resolution; regardless of input signal. The Ultra-HD TV even offers "HEVC" decoding, which means it'll be able to display 4K content from online movie & TV show providers (like Netflix). 4K provides 4x higher resolution than current 1080p high-definition TVs, ensuring a truly immersive experience for all your favorite movies and TV shows. UHD Upscaling delivers the complete Ultra-HD picture experience with a proprietary process including signal analysis, noise reduction, UHD upscaling, and detail enhancement to seamlessly upconvert SD, HD, or full-HD content to Ultra-HD-level picture quality.

Ultra-Clear Panel w/ Curved Screen: The Samsung Ultra Clear Panel absorbs ambient light, reduces reflections and lets the picture come to life. It displays deeper blacks and enhanced contrast for crystal clarity and reduces glare, so you can see clearly and enjoy more detail. Samsung's curved screen is supported with proprietary technology that creates an accurate picture with exceptional color, without any picture distortion. It has a dramatically improved field of view that creates a panoramic effect and helps the picture feel bigger.

LED Edge-Lighting w/ Local Dimming: Samsung's LED Edge-Lighting technology w/ UHD Dimming + Precision Black Local Dimming 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.

  • UHD Dimming: UHD Micro Dimming precisely scans an incredible amount of zones across the entire image and adjusts brightness to deliver deeper darks and brighter whites. It virtually eliminates the "halo" effect and image distortion, so you'll enjoy a crystal clear picture
  • Precision Black Local Dimming: Experience sharper contrast with Precision Black Local Dimming. It dims LEDs behind the darkest area of the picture for greater contrast and darker blacks, while the brighter elements remain as bright as they should be.

Clear Motion Rate 1440: 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 (120Hz) 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 + PurColor: With Wide Color Enhancer Plus, you'll witness a wider spectrum of colors on the TV screen, just like the director intended. You'll enjoy enriched colors while watching your favorite movies, and shows, even if it's older, non-HD content. PurColor allows the TV to express the most shades of color as nature intended for optimal picture performance. Most TV's focus on the adjustment points of primary colors Red, Green and Blue. PurColor focuses on primary and secondary colors Magenta, Cyan and Yellow.

Auto Motion Plus & Auto Depth Enhancer: 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. Auto Depth Enhancer is innovative picture technology that analyzes regions of each image and automatically adjusts the contrast for a greater sense of depth. As a result, everything you watch has incredible detail and appears more natural.

One Connect Box: The Samsung HU9000 series LED-LCD TV includes Samsung's One Connect Box which connects to the television via a single 10' proprietary cable. The One Connect Box is fitted with all of the TV's RF, video, audio, USB, LAN, and IR Out connectivity. The One Connect Box provides high definition and standard definition video inputs, as well as a built-in HDTV tuner.

SoundShare can be found on select Samsung active soundbar speaker systems (sold separately).

Quick impressions from the Lab

Comment by Cooper Advisor,

An everlasting impression

Written by Cooper, Advisor, on 6/8/2014 12:55:00 PM

I am normally a plasma lover, but this television but the UN55HU900 left a lasting impression on me. To start, the curvature design makes a true difference in delivering a more immersive experience. Then, it's coupled with the best video processing I have ever laid my eyes on. This 4K TV delivered a picture so impressive, even a true videophile (such as myself) was impressed!

After seeing in person the difference the 4K processing makes to even 720p content, along with the sleek curvature design, I was left with a viewing experience unlike anything I'd seen before. This is a must-have television for anyone who wants top performance and take a step into the future with ultra-high definition technology.

Amazing picture, issue with SmartHub Apps

Written By olgerm, San Francisco, CA on Wednesday, July 09, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Great picture quality and features. Easy to use. Everything you would expect from Samsung and a UHD TV. The 3D is a fun option, especially since my cable provider offers 3D options on-demand.
Pros:
Curved screen is a nice feature and looks great in the living room. Ease of set-up and use is a plus, expecially with the smart remote. Looking forward to getting the HD Media Player to fully enjoy the 4k resolution.
Cons:
Hooked TV up to my Bose reciever and apeaker system. Works great with the exception that apps from the SamartHub current arte only supported with audio thru the TV speakers, not external speakers. After speaking with the support team at Samsung I was told this was a known issue that would be resolved with a firmware update sometime in the future. A mild annoyance, but not a deal breaker as I still access most of the same apps thru my Apple TV.

4K TV review

Written By Paul B, Lancaster, PA on Tuesday, July 08, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This TV is amazing, easy to set up and picture if fantastic. UP scaling from 1080i TV looks better than no upscaled. When matched with a 4K DVD player picture from a regular Blue ray is improved, waiting to receive my 1TB hard drive with actual 4k (not upscaled movies on it) to see how native formate 4K looks. #d movies are amazing as well
Pros:
The best set on the market, the upgradable control box (unknown how much that will cost to up grade in the future though) or if it is hardware or software upgrade is a plus.
Cons:
I wish the control box that controls the set had a few more HDMI inputs, on it so I did not need to use a switch box to control PS3, PS4, Playstation, but this is a minor.A tad expensive, however this is not unexpected for early adoption of curved screen and 4K

Awesome

Written By John, Tarrytown, NY on Monday, May 05, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This TV is really AWESOME. I'm sold on the curved screen which really makes the difference bringing you into what you are watching. Although there isn't much 4K content, this TV makes what's out there so much better due to all of the video processing that Samsung brings to the table. Also the applications in Samsung's SMART tv system is over the top. I was also really pleased that it has a "real" web browser that works as good as my laptop. The only disappointment was the HDMI Audio Return Channel ARC feature. It's not a fault of Samsung since they are following the HDMI specification but if you turn this on in your home theater system it makes the receiver a "slave" to your TV meaning that the audio from the TV is the primary source to the receiver and there is no way to make the receiver the primary audio source unless you re-select the receiver input after everything is on. Samsung wants you to connect all your inputs, cable box, DVD, etc, to it's OneConnect box instead of connecting to the receiver then to the TV via HDMI. So one work around is to connect an optical cable from the Samsung audio out to the receiver to get audio from your receiver when you are watching content from a Samsung application such as Netflix for example. I also like the OneConnect box for any upgrades in the future. The TV price is up there but if you want the best, it's worth it.
Pros:
Awesome picture, never seen better.
Cons:
None

2 questions already asked

Yes I am writing to ask about an articulating mount for the curved tv which one will work with the unit? [ John  Aug 26, 2014 ]
1 answer
  • I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: A great option for a full motion articulating mount for that TV would be the VFX220. http://www.crutchfield.com/I-rXYEc111/app/cart/EmailCart.aspx?emKey=1133279 If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy Staff  Aug 27, 2014 ]
i purchased a Onkyo TX-NR 929 from you recently and plan on using it with the Samsung UN 55 HU 9000. My question is do I connect my Blue Ray and Direct TV to the Onkyo, and use the output on the Onkyo to connect to the Samsung smart box? [ Robert  Jun 03, 2014 ]
3 answers
  • Robert, I think how you connect things is based on how you want your Remote Control to work. I eventually eliminated the HDMI relaying through a home theatr receiver because of HDCP syncing issues that caused many family members to have to power-cycle the home theater receiver to get the sound back. I am now taking the digital sound out of the television itself. [ Zzyzx Oh   Jun 05, 2014 ]
  • Yes that is what I would do. The reason is that you want the Onkyo processing all of the audio which it does best and passing the video to the Samsung for it to process. Also best not to turn on the video upscaling on the Onkyo. Let the Samsung do all of the video processing which it does best. In addition, when you use a Samsung video application to play a movie for example, the Samsung will need to pass the audio to the Onkyo, You can try to see if the HDMI reverse auto channel works for you but if not just use an optical connection from the Samsung to the Onkyo for the audio and you will be all set.

  • Unable to answer questions. I switched to a different model because of a size issue. sorry! [ VERNON   Jun 04, 2014 ]
