SUHDTV

At this year's CES 2015, Samsung went beyond OLED TVs and introduced nine different models of SUHD TVs for the coming year that all incorporate nanocrystals to enhance the LCD backlights, resulting in brighter images with a wider color gamut than the traditional LCDs we've seen in the past. For more, check out CNET Editor David Katzmaier's first take of the Samsung JS8500 series.

SUHDTV benchmarks

Although Samsung was eager to extoll the virtues of the SUHDTVs, don't forget that they still won't beat the picture quality of OLED. They're still LED LCD TVs, after all, with all of the flaws of that technology.
