Guys, is there any 40" or 43" alternative to this TV in the Samsung lineup? Or at least what comes the closest.

I know the mu series isn't much better (actually pretty sure it's slightly worse), but I believe there should be reviews for some 40/43" screens. Iirc their starting price is ~$550 for the mu6300 and $700 for the mu7000 [both of which are replacements for the ku63/7000 series, neither of which came close to the ks8000].

Seems like the sony x800d is still the best small 4k tv to get (though it is lacking brightness and local dimming), assuming that the mu6300/7000 still have judder with 24p content. The 800e seems lackluster due to Sony using an IPS panel this time around.

Guess I don't have to worry about the 2017 version of my KS8000 being better. I'll be looking to upgrade in 2018/2019.

Samsung MU8000 LED TV vs Samsung KS8000 LED TV

The 2016 KS8000 performs better than the MU8000 overall.

The KS8000 has a higher native contrast ratio for dark scenes
The KS8000 gets significantly brighter for HDR and SDR
The KS8000 has a wider color gamut, and can display a larger color volume
The KS8000 is better at handling reflections
The MU8000 has better motion handling due to the faster response time

If you can find it, the KS8000 performs better and is available at a lower price.

I have exactly 109cm of space for the TV. The KS8000 is rated at 109,4cm. Okay with a little maybe it would be just fine. Now however the TV is not existing in my country.. I dont want to go Sony and Android but maybe I would be forced. Now all the drama with the different model number(US-> UE -> Easter Europe then biggrin.gif etc.)

My 1080p TV died and it is not worth the repair. I really wanted that KS8000 and to pair it later on with a Scorpio with some couch gaming from time to time. I should have pulled the trigger on the that deal lol

Thanks guys!

Edit: God damn this naming scheme. Found UE-49KS8002, should be the same thing.

Hallo, I'm considering buying the UNKS8000 (EUKS7000 here in Europe) since I found it at a very reasonable price. I need some advice from current owner since my primary (99%) use will be as a computer monitor 49" for programming, as audio workstation, video editing and a bit of gaming and I'm a bit concerned mostly about the pwm flicker "issue" I read in some reviews and the associated motion blur, considering in game and pc mode filters cannot be enabled. Alternative would be Sony XE900 which is available at almost twice the price.... so it's not an easy choice.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I've seen no reports of flicker here, and there are quite a few owners of the 49" that use it as a monitor. thumb.gif

Not sure about the flicker since I don't have any issues with it. I guess some people are more sensitive to it? As for motion blur, it's a 60Hz VA panel so there's some blur with fast motion gaming but I rarely notice it these days.

@manight, I just want to say Thank you! Indeed the KS7000 is like the KS8000 in US, which explains why I was not fond of the price of the KS8000 in Europe(which would be the 9 Series). You saved me some money thumb.gif
