Samsung's UN85S9 won Best of CES in the TV category

LAS VEGAS--Samsung's UN85S9 TV is an immediately impressive and unusual television with its large frame and tilting screen. It has an Ultra HD resolution (3,840x2,160 pixels) and promises a full LED backlight with local dimming (currently U.S. only). It should have an excellent picture as a result.

Off-axis

Off-axis viewing isn't as impressive as on an OLED but the TV is so large that you would need a huge room for this to be a problem.

Back

The Samsung UN85S9 features a metallic back that's quite chic, and if you look in the top left corner there appears to be a cover to conceal the connections. This TV is designed to be the centerpiece of any room.
