Samsung JS8500 vs. the Vizio M-Series

Samsung JS8500 vs. the Vizio M-Series

1: I’m stuck between two 4K Televisions: Which is the better purchase, the Samsung JS8500 55”or the Vizio M-Series 55”?

Excellent question! To start off, let us take a look at some of the specifications for each model.

Samsung JS8500 is a 4k, Ultra High Definition television with up to 4 times the resolution of typical 1080p resolution and 64 times greater color range and expression than conventional 8-bit HD and Ultra HD televisions. In fact, the maximum resolution for this model is 3840 x 2160.

The Vizio M-Series is also a slim, 55” 4K Ultra High Definition Television with App functionality similar to that of Samsung’s Smart TV. The clear display from the Vizio M-Series is the same as Samsung JS8500 at 3840 x 2160; however, Vizio uses 64 Active LED Zones to adjust their LED backlight to provide the display’s black levels, contrast, and colors. This is different than the LCD display Samsung uses in the JS8500 model, which uses the better-quality Nano-crystals to provide a better variety of color variations and contrast.

This offers the viewer a much more dynamic contrast across an LCD display panel and provides bolder images, better color range, and seamless access with Smart TV (Samsung’s Apps platform). In addition, this 55” 4K television by Samsung is incredibly thin and perfect for watching action films and sports with the super smooth display via a refresh rate of 240 (240Hz).

2: So, which one should I buy?

There are a few small differences between these two models you should consider during your purchase—and deciding which one to buy will be up to your intended usage for the television (gaming, watching television, streaming videos through Apps, sports, etc…).

For example, Vizio’s Clear Action 960 is comparable to Samsung JS8500’s processing, and delivers a similar 240Hz refresh rate that Samsung offers. Vizio’s Spatial Scaling Engine upscales HD and Full HD shows, sports, and gaming into near 4K clarity.

However, for gaming purposes, Vizio’s M-Series offers an impressive 120 frames per second—The Samsung JS8500 only offers 4K resolution of 60 frames per second and does not support even 1080p resolution at 120 fps for gaming.


One major difference that will undoubtedly be under consideration is, of course, the price: the Samsung JS8500 can be up to $500 more expensive than the Vizio M-Series. This price may be worth it due to Samsung’s Nano-crystal technology. However, to almost all viewers, a difference is unlikely to be noticed at all, as 4K resolution is high quality no matter what type of backlight is used. However, for gamers, the frames per second are much more inferior on the Samsung JS8500, and the Vizio M-Series would be the best purchase.

For those who do not wish to spend an extra $500 for Nano-crystal technology in the display, the Vizio M-Series would also be the better purchase. In the end, it is up to the buyer to take into consideration the specifications and information provided and decide which Ultra HD TV will be best for them. Good luck!

3: Is the Samsung JS8500 capable of 3D features, and if so, how good is it?

Yes, the Samsung JS8500 does feature 3D viewing options. In fact, this model provides excellent viewing of 3D film, with little to no crosstalk (also called image ghosting, or the 3D version of blurring or distortion due to perceptual factors).

The 3D viewing feature is available on all three sizes of the Samsung JS8500, with the 48”, 55”, and the 65” and the purchase of this Samsung model includes one pair of 3D active glasses (model SSG-5150GB). In my personal opinion, the 3D picture is greater on the Samsung JS8500 than almost any other model, due to reduced glare via the Ultra Clear Panel screen, the Nano-crystal 4K display, and the 240Hz refresh rate which offers exceptional motion onscreen without digital stuttering or–just a smooth picture.

I definitely recommend this Samsung model for its 3D features—in fact, I would personally buy it. It performs incredibly well and will offer you millions of additional colors during viewing than an ordinary 4K television using LED can.


4: What App and streaming capabilities does the Samsung JS8500 have and is there a 4K TV with better features?

The Samsung JS8500 has built-in Wi-Fi and uses “Smart TV” to deliver a host of options for entertainment. With Smart TV, you can stream movies, television shows, music, and more, with the app functions that allow you to connect to Netflix, Hulu, Pandora Radio, etc…

Smart TV also allows you to browse your favorite websites with the web browser that is offered, essentially turning your TV into a computer in some ways. Smart TV also allows you to multitask and switch between apps and stream content with the on-board quad-core processor built into the TV.

Not only does the JS8500 have Smart TV, but it also contains “Smart View 2.0,” and screen mirroring technology. This means you can use the large display of your television instead of your portable devices (e.g., smartphone or tablet) to watch content or perform other functions such as viewing photos, watching a film, going on social media, and anything else you can think of.  In addition to all of this, you can connect and sync with Bluetooth wirelessly, and use a smartphone, tablet, keyboard, or headphones to the television.

Another option that is similar in price is actually the Samsung JS9000—this updated model contains the same options as the JS8500 but offers a curved display screen, which creates a more cinematic feel. It also has the same specifications as the JS8500 but with some updated features and additions such as Peak Illuminator Pro, better sound, and better viewing angles with the curved display screen. Personally, being around the same price, I would upgrade to the Samsung JS9000 and get these extra features and display.
