Looking to buy the award-winning Samsung UE49KS7000 UHDTV? Here are the best UK prices and deals you can get in 2017
The Samsung KS7000 hits the sweet spot for quality and value across UHDTV sets in January 2017.
This superslim, bezel-free TV set has an UltraHD Premium certificate which means that it meets the very highest technical standards set down by the UHD Alliance, including a peak brightness of at least 1000 nits. (Nits are based on candle-light, incidentally – 1 nit equals 1 candle).
This means that its 4k panel can reproduce the full high dynamic range of the UHDTV standard with accuracy and intensity: blacks are darker, whites are brighter and the colours and greys in between are sharply delineated.
The KS7000 utilises the so-called ‘Quantum Dot’ technology that’s exclusive to Samsung. In a nutshell this means that it can display far more colours than the standard UHDTV set: over 1 billion, compared with 16.7 million. This allows more lifelike images that some describe as more like looking through a window than at a screen.
Perhaps the slickest thing about the KS7000 is that in order to keep the main panel as slim and fuss-free as possible, the set has a separate unit to connect its input, which can be tucked out of sight and prevent the usual spaghetti of cables cascading out of the screen.
The KS7000 is available in 49-inch, 55-inch, 60-inch and 65-inch screen sizes. This deals round-up will focus on the most affordable 49-incher which has the model name Samsung UE49KS7000.

It concluded: “The 49KS7000′s overall picture quality and UHD Premium credentials elevate the display as our number one choice in its price class – it’s a veritable HDR hero.”
