Best 4k Gaming TVs To Buy Right Now: Top HDR, UHD for Xbox One, Project Scorpio and PS4 Pro

It isn’t a mystery why 4k televisions have become a widespread "must have". Having four times as many pixels as a 1080p TV, the results are a much more detailed and richer image.

KS9000 65" here! Was worth it and will stay in this house until I get super rich one day! Might have some value in reselling it as well due to the 12-bit HDR and 4K and good input lag :)

Question to KS9000 users: what settings do you use on PS4 Pro? Do you use RGB and 2160p Full Range on both HDR games too? I read somewhere YUV with Limited Range should be the only way to see full 12-bit HDR. But this was most likely a PS4 Pro issue, not the TV set's.

I have the 65 inch KS9000 and I use RBG with full range.

The hell is a 12 bit panel? LOL

Thanks for the info! What kind of settings do you use? Do you just put the Game mode on? I think the HDR looks better on YUV and on limited range and colors set to auto instead of native (it messes up the HDR dynamic, I think the native tries to reproduce the HDR for non-HDR content, just like HDR+ or something).

I'm also experiencing huge brightness issues with games when using Dynamic Contrast. It's pretty painful in The Witcher 3 on RGB, but the black look so washed out on YUV so I put blacks to low on RGB and adjust the brightness on dark areas.

But overall the image looks brilliant. Upscaling is really good on the TV so 1080p games on PS4 Pro' 4K framebuffer look great on KS9000, despite the internal rendering resolution being lower than 2160p.


The panel has capability to do 12-bit range of HDR, which is a pretty significant improvement over the typical 8-bit range from previous "HDR" sets. Basically more shades and more vivid colors.

I have the ks9000. It's great. But it's not 12 bit hdr. It's 10. And the tv doesn't upscale anything when in game mode. I like your enthusiasm for this great tv. But please do your homework before singing it's praise.
On a different note: this whole article is so poorly written, it's a joke. They too should have done their homework

Thanks for your reply!

It has been said that technically KS9000 is capable of 12-bit HDR, even though it is not out there yet. It is considered a 10-bit panel as of now and you are right about that. I meant the 10-bit in games, and 12-bit in other applications (non-game mode) in the future, I communicated that poorly. According to Digital Foundry, at least the KS8000 is upscaling the image, however, they did not specify on which mode. (they probably meant only PS4 Pro on 1080p mode and that is from the menu as that is supposed to change the buffer too.

I checked out the AVforums and such globally and locally, and it seems that there is a lot of post processing and scaling going on with the tv all the time, but it is hard to say how much and when. For example when the frame buffer is 4K on the console, I guess the TV won't affect the internal resolution, which is what the scaling chip does in the console by using checkerboard or temporal scaling (like in Ratcher & Clank.)

To be honest, I'm not entirely satisfied with the KS9000, I'd like a much faster UI, better tuning options and a much better HDR indicators of when it is 8bit and when 10bit and how can I know it without physically measuring it (which I'm not too keen to do, not interested in calculating pixels).

Just to note, I'm not a technical person and am piecing stuff together just by myself. And as this is not a test, I don't think I need to do too much homework, just trying to awoke discussion. As of now, nobody has answered my question about the ideal settings either...

Got a 55UH9500 (55uh950V depending on where you are). Love it!

If anyone is having issues on which one to get I recommend if you want informative info .
Me I went with a Samsung KS9000 awesome .

JeffGUNZ377d ago

What's the difference with the KS8000 and KS9000?

XXanderXX377d ago

From the info provided the 8000 has a slight streak of flutter when things are thrown or moving quickly. Aside from that my main care was that it was right size ,had everything I need for gaming for when Scorpio release

I got the 55" Samsung KU6500 for my room. It's a very nice upgrade from 1080p, and games on XB1S are notably better. I'll be getting a 75"-85" top of the line around Black Friday to go with the Scorpio. Damn!!! I can't freaking wait!!

omegaheat378d ago (Edited 378d ago )

I have question. I don't have an Xbox One S, I have the original fat model. I have 49 inch LG 4K UH6030. I know that's nothing to brag about, but the picture on it is amazing. I decided one day to turn on the HDR feature and I noticed that my games look far superior whenever I use it. I don't experience any of the lag that I hear people describe either. I guess the tv set is a diamond in the ruff for its price. I thought only the Xbox One S could benefit from HDR, so why does it also help games look better on the original Xbox One? This is also why I decided to wait for the Scorpio.

tmisellati378d ago

I have a LG 49uh6500 and the games looks fantastic on it , especially if the HDR is on. I think the input lag is around 20 ms even in the HDR game mode.

Donnie81378d ago

Dude that tv has a great picture. People always say Samsung's budget 4k tv's are better but I don't think that's true at all. LGs budgets sets are great and outperform Samsung's line in picture quality, hdr is a draw and after the January update lg is pretty much even or better in input lag. But honestly almost any 4k set looks amazing
