Introduction to the Samsung UN85S9AF LED Display

Reviewing the Samsung UN85S9AF is far from a simple task. The entire construct requires around 4 people to stand upright. This 85" behemoth is a self contained home theater experience – it stands on its own and although it can technically be wall mounted, this really breaks from its design statement.

Apparently, Samsung discovered that many of its customers prefer to use the built in stand – which is why they've invested a great deal in the built-in stand designs. When Samsung first showed off this design at CES in Las Vegas, I really didn't like it. From afar, it looked like a folding beach chair or scissors. However, when the UN85S9AF is right next to you, the feeling changes. The design is elegant and looks much better in person than it does on the Vegas show floor or in pictures.

The frame of the display is heavy and robust and not only hides connectors and cables (an external connection box connects through a single dedicated cable that runs through the frame) but also includes an impressive array of speakers that work wonders even in larger spaces and also serves as invisible center, front right and left speakers in situations where you prefer to refrain from additional speakers.

The panel's actual bezel is quite thin and the top frame hides a small camera that can be clicked in (privacy) and out as needed (for skype calls).
