A $18K Luxury in Your Home?

It is flashy and definitely a centre piece for your home.

Think of a home entertainment system and several brands come to mind - LG, Panasonic, and Sony. Now think of one that is fed with an overdose of steroids and think Samsung.

This time Samsung spares no expense in fine tuning and perfecting this premium range of SMART SUHD TVs. With the use of nano-crystal technology, Samsung has managed to achieve better colour reproduction, brightness and contrast. So expect more vibrant and accurate colour representations with any other UHD TVs!  

The SUHD TVs are all equipped with state of the art features such as, Peak Illuminator and Precision Black. While the Peak Illuminator helps enhance your TV watching experience by making the images incredibly clear even under bright light, Precision Black amplifies contrasts so that more details can be seen during darkly lit scenes; like those in Batman’s Dark Knight.

For those wondering about how those unsightly wires and cables are going to look, well Samsung has the One Connect Box to solve that issue. Only one cable connects the TV to the One Connect Box, while all other cables are connected to the TV via the One Connect Box that can be hidden away.

Some really awesome features of the SUHD TV include mirroring your Smartphone’s display when connected and as it is a SMART TV you are able to seamlessly surf the Internet with its built-in Octa-Core processor. Apart from the brilliant and high contrast displays, Samsung’s SUHD TV aims to keep you connected; in keeping up with Samsung’s vision of making all their products IoT (Internet of Things) capable by 2017.

So if you are looking for a SUHD TV that looks just as awesome as its display, look no further. However, with great design and technology comes an even greater price tag. They range from S$5,499 for the 55” JS9000 model to S$17,999 for the top of the line 78” JS9500 model. With prices shooting off the roof and such large screens, this piece of luxury might not be for everyone considering the shrinking house sizes in Singapore.

One of a kind curved sound bars to complement that curved TV of your yours, but at a price of course.

Apart from its SUHD TV debut, Samsung has also launched an array of home entertainment gadgets that include an Omni-Directional 360 audio speaker and curved sound bar. The curved sound bar deserves a mention not only because it is curved and complements the curved TVs aesthetically, but because of its Bluetooth capability which allows you to stream music directly from your phone like a wireless speaker. The sound bar comes in different sizes ranging from 48” to 78”, prices start from S$799 but just like the SUHD TVs, prices are steep compared to regular sound bars that can costs as little as S$300.
