Sound thinking

The result of this placement is that the set can produce deeper bass than usual, which in turn leads to a more solid and punchy sound that works just as well for action movies as it does for soaps. With a set of this size though, I think you’d be nuts not to twin it with a proper surround sound system.

Slender moments

In terms of power draw the set sucks in less than a watt on stand by, but takes a relatively hefty 209W or so in Dynamic mode or around 150W in the Movie mode, which operates with reduced brightness.

Verdict

The UE55C9000 is a difficult TV to score, because it’s basically more of a statement product, than something that’s going to sell in big numbers. Obviously, it’s the design and slimness of the set that pushes the price up, and there really is no other TV on the market that is as aesthetically pleasing.

It’s no slouch when it comes to performance either, as it has incredibly good picture processing (especially for SD upscaling), deep black levels and 3D performance. However, the back light inconsistencies and the poorly thought out touchscreen remote are rather annoying given the huge asking price. Still, if money isn’t an issue for you and you want a telly that really is a picture, then Samsung’s UE55C9000 is definitely the one to buy. ®
