Pro No input lag issues
This is one of the best TVs that can be used for gaming as it manages to deliver absolutely excellent motion control with no noticeable motion blur problems. Input lag measures around 20 ms in FullHD, 4K or 4K+HDR modes. This means that the action on the screen will not be blurred out nor will it lag behind the actual controller input.
Pro Superb contrast and color reproduction
The Samsung KS800 does not disappoint when it comes to picture quality. The TV has a 10 bit panel with excellent color gamut coverage, meaning that the picture will look detailed and colors will look natural without any banding issues, especially if HDR content is displayed. Contrast and color uniformity is also excellent for a LCD TV making it a good choice for very dark rooms, as no backlight blooming will be visible.
Pro Easy access to inputs
This TV has a small external box called OneConnect that has all the HDMI and USB connections for the TV, making it easy to access them, as you do not need to reach for the back of the TV that is especially useful if the TV is mounted to the wall.
Pro Very thin
The TV is only 3,8 cm thick, making it one of the thinnest TVs in the market.
Pro Beautiful design
The TV has an impressive design, with almost non-existent borders, high quality finish and even the back of the TV is well designed, meaning that it can be a wonderful centre piece in the living room interior. Its stand has a chrome finish.
Pro Variety of input formats supported
The KS8000 TV supports all resolutions up to 4K and signals up to 60 Hz. In addition, HDR support is there as well. Chroma 4:4:4 sub-sampling is supported as well, meaning correct color information for photo editing.
Con Big footprint
This TV will not fit all TV tables, as the stands are mounted on each side of the TV, creating a wide footprint.
Con External sound system may be needed
The sound of the TV is above average, when compared to other sets, and can even be enough for small rooms, but for larger living rooms it is recommended to use an external audio device.
