Customer Reviews: Samsung UN85S9 85-Inch 4K Ultra HD 120Hz 3D Smart LED TV [Funny!]
Amazon.com ^ | November 25, 2013 | James O. Thach "@JamesOtisThach"

Posted on 12/13/2013 12:41:08 AM PST by Slings and Arrows

My wife and I bought this after selling our daughter Amanda into white slavery. We actually got a refurbished. It's missing the remote, but oh well-- for $10K off, I can afford a universal, right? The picture is amazing. I've never seen the world with such clarity.

Amanda, if you're reading this, hang in there, honey! We'll see you in a year.

The most helpful critical review

It makes those abused animal commercials with the sarah mclachlan music playing so much sadder when the one-eyed pug is 4 feet tall.

I wonder what kind of sweet TV I could trade for my 14 yr old Shih Tzu Charlie?
He’s a real good dog but the rare times he’s actually awake he’s often scratching himself relentless.
Loves to cuddle though....
Any takers?

They better PRAY they can get some kind of extended warranty...panels like to fail, and warp VERY, VERY easily on those thin samsung tv’s....trust me—I worked on them for years—till about 6 months ago.

They have the kid back, so they're in a good position to negotiate.

There was an expensive Ultra HDTV on display at the mall, outside a store front where the shoppers walk.

I told my wife: If al Qaeda attacks, I’m going to rescue this TV and you use your body as a shield.

Then we sat, but there was no al Qaeda, or at least no attack.

I read the whole review after my comment—VERY likely BOGUS!!

Anyway....I’ll stick with my 44” pana LCD projo HD set....I got it for free, and fixed it. 3.5 years later.....I still use it a lot.

And I GUARANTEE ...the sound is a LOT better than ANY flat panel!!!

Last Samsung TV I bought was like 7 years ago. It was a HD Tube set that hade a very narrow, space saving yoke.
That design didn’t really help with the focus of the widescreen at all.
The overall picture itself was incredible but the picture dynamics sucked bad.
Returned two completely faulty ones before I went for the incredible Sony 34in widescreen HD tube set.

Do people in the US still have old broadcast TVs?
I thought all came by digital cable or satellite.
My wife bought a conventional TV when I moved here (Philippines) but we now watch only satellite, connected to audio/video jacks. The pic is a bit out of focus, so I plan to buy just an LED monitor with audio, and give the TV to some poor people.

Is there any broadcast 4k content even available? I'm not even sure there are players that can do 4k generally available.

IIRC that's what Patrick Norton and Robert Heron said on HD Nation/Tekzilla just a week or so ago.

Since 1997 the US has had "new" broadcast TVs that can pick up the new HD broadcast standard: ATSC. It ran side-by-side with good old NTSC until 2009, and since then, it is the only TV standard broadcast over US airwaves.

It still uses the same VHF and UHF antennas as the old days, however reception range is lessened compared to analog.

Since I dumped cable TV (even for just locals), ATSC is what I use: I have rabbit ears feeding my 46" HDTV. I get everything but NBC… surprise surprise, guess what company is owned by Comcast, and thus doesn't care to do over-the-air broadcasting well?

TV set makers want to transition us to a non-backwards compatible ATSC 3.0 system starting a few years from now, but they'll get tremendous blowback. Most Americans only transitioned to HDTVs in 2008 or 2009.

You pretty much lost me with the new technology. I do not know how that works in rural areas.
My business was radio electronics, but as a side line I sold the old 12 foot dishes that picked up C band sat transmissions. OK, that was 30+ years ago. I am now happy with my G-sat Ku band system.

Sorry, in my effort to be thorough, I was confusing.

Quick answers to: "Does the US still have old broadcast TVs?"

Yes. But ones made before 1999 or so will need an inexpensive converter box, since the picture format has changed from analog to digital.

(Hopefully that's a lot clearer.)

Don't give it to the poor. They have all the best TV’s. Give it to someone that works all the time and only gets to watch TV on occasion.

We are still using my grandmother's TV. She passed away in 1994, and the TV was a few years old then, so I think it is over 25 years old. It works fine. I see no reason to get another. I do not actually know how well it receives broadcast; here in the mountains, I doubt there is much signal anyway.

The glass panels being developed and sold probably won’t pose the same problems, because they are much stronger than they used to be.

I just got a 32 inch Pensonic (not Panasonic) at NCCC Mall in Davao City. It is 720p, but good enough till later, when I start using it as a computer monitor. I have Cignal satellite service. Lots of good movies, but no hockey. I have to stream that on my new Mac Book Pro, with retina display. It works for me.

I am not so much into TV, but I have G-sat which is all I want. I could, however, use a better monitor. I assume that monitors, as in computer, will work OK for TV, as long as they have Video and audio input jacks.
