Snapshot: Samsung S9 Ultra HD TV

The world’s best, biggest Ultra HD TV is a Samsung

At CES 2013, Samsung blew away attendees with a whole suite of new TVs. Its 2013 TV line-up includes LED, LCD, plasma, and OLED variants, and we’re sure that just like in previous years Samsung will cover a wide gamut of prices.

Up at the higher end of the price range, you’re able to buy extremely high quality TVs. You’re also able to buy extremely large TVs, too. Combine the two and the price goes through the roof.

This is the reason we’re simultaneously looking forward to and wincing at the price tag of the Samsung S9, an Ultra HD LED TV that’s going to be available in 85-inch and 110-inch sizes.

The S9’s massive LED-backlit LCD panel is going to have a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels, far in excess of the current 1920 x 1080 pixel standard of Full HD that’s currently top dog. We’ve seen two Ultra HD TVs so far — the Sony ‘4K’ Ultra HD BRAVIA, and the LG 84LM9600 — but they’re still rare and pricy.

The design of the S9 is just as impressive as its Ultra HD credentials. It’s mounted on a two-legged easel, with a rakish tilt — you’re going to have to have a lot of space to put it in your living room, although we presume it will also be wall-mountable.

Samsung isn’t going to be the one that brings Ultra HD price tags down to affordable levels. The 85-inch S9 will be out soon, and we fully expect it to carry the same price as Sony’s $25K BRAVIA. The 110-inch S9, booked in for some time in the future, will be far, far more expensive.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
