The KS8000 and KU6300 are two great Samsung TVs. This is a Samsung KS8000 review as well as a Samsung KU6300 review. Both of these TVs have 4k resolution (UHD). The KU6300 is often advertised as an HDR TV, but it doesn't have a wide color gamut and lacks the brightness and contrast needed for the Ultra HD premium certification. The KS8000 is a worthy upgrade to the KU6300. Not only does it have a 10bit panel with a wide color gamut, but it has local dimming and is considerably brighter. The KS8000 won't compare to an OLED TV, but for the money it's hard to beat. See the side-by-side comparison in this video and decide for yourself.
A quick review of Amazon's new Echo Dot 2 (2nd Generation) with a comparison to the Amazon Echo and some home automation. I have the Echo and Echo Dot working with Samsung SmartThings and Nest Thermostat. I also compare the Echo Dot 2nd Gen to the Echo. The New Echo Dot works very well for playing music since it has an aux port. If you ask Alexa to play music, by default it will play from Amazon Prime Music but it also works with Spotify, Tune-in and a few other music services.
