The Bottom Line Despite excellent all-around picture quality, the Samsung UNF9000 4K TV offers almost no improvement over cheaper 1080p TVs that cost much less. The excellent yet expensive Samsung UNF8000 is a tour de force of LED LCD TV design, features, and picture quality. The midlevel price and outstanding quality of the Panasonic TC-PST60 series make it our strongest TV recommendation ever. The excellent yet expensive Samsung UNF8000 is a tour de force of LED LCD TV design, features, and picture quality.
