Samsung’s flagship TV for 2014, the HU9000 Curved Ultra HD
TV is without a doubt one of the best looking tvs in the market today. From its silver brushed metal of the base stand, to its thin bezel, to the ribbon of chrome around the edge, the HU9000 is a metallic beauty and with its curved screen, one with curves.
Though not as prominent as you’d expect, the curved screen is there for a reason (no, it’s not just an eye candy). The curved screen helps deflect reflection. The expansive 65 inch screen is gorgeous, and will have any gadget-aficionado lusting over it.
The screen resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels equates to an eye-popping Ultra HD (UHD) viewing experience, where the old adage of ‘seeing is believing’ is proven, once again. Even if you do not currently have UHD content to play, the HU9000’s UHD Upscaling feature seamlessly converts standard definition content to UHD. I watched the Matrix trilogy and had a ball when the action sequences came into play.
The HU9000 is packed with proprietary Samsung technologies like Auto Depth Enhancer, UHD Dimming, PurColor, Wide Color Enhancer Plus, which all result in a great tv watching experience that makes it hard to turn this thing off once you have switched it on.
The HU9000 is powered by a Quad Core Plus processor which ensures seamless switching between TV, apps, web-browsing, streaming content and enables faster multi-tasking. Samsung’s Smart Hub interface greets you when you turn on the TV, and it clubs everything you love into one place. The interface is clean and simple, and you should be whizzing around it in no time. The HU9000 takes on next-generation multi-tasking with its Quad Screen feature, transforming your TV into four screens, while the Screen Mirroring feature allows for your laptop or mobile device’s screen to be projected on to the TV.
The HU9000 comes with a pair of remotes (a standard Samsung TV remote and a touchpad-equipped motion-sensitive remote, four pairs of 3D glasses, a built-in pop-up camera (for Skype and gesture-recognition), and a OneConnect box. The OneConnect box is Samsung’s solution to future-proofing the HU9000, with buyers able to enjoy future UHD and Smart TV advancements without having to buy a new TV by simply upgrading or replacing the OneConnect box with a new one.
Your media connectivity needs are taken care via a myriad of options including 4 HDMI connections, 3 USB connections, Built-in Wi-Fi, 2 AV Composite ins, and 1 Optical out.
Yantrick’s Verdict: Beautifully designed with stunning picture quality and a host of features that makes it almost impossible to turn it off, Samsung’s HU9000 Curved TV is a gadget that we all want but, at Rs 900,000, one that only a few can have.
