Samsung is one of the most respected names in the electronic biz, so it comes as no surprise that their HDTVs and flat screens are some of the best on the market. If you’re in the market for a new Samsung TV, these are some of your best options.


1. Samsung UN65HU9000 Curved 65-Inch 4K Ultra HD 120Hz 3D Smart LED HDTV

Motion and voice controls are both supported by this Samsung TV. Do note, however, that to get the best effect from a curved TV, you need a rather large living room.
