Samsung releases pricing for its massive 85-inch S9 Ultra HDTV, do you have a spare $39,999?

Samsung's S9 UHD TV is finally given a price and launch date

During this year's CES trade show in Las Vegas we saw a massive 4K Ultra HD TV from Samsung. The beast was perched in a welded metal frame and boasted a massive 85-inch 4K compatible LCD.

The 85-inch monster will hit store shelves (or floors, more likely) at the end of this month and will retail for a reported $39,999, making it one of the most expensive televisions on the market. Also expected to release soon is Samsung's Smart Evolution Kit which will retail for $300 and will connect to Samsung Smart TVs via Bluetooth to keep them updated with the latest software and firmware.

 

Also set to release around the same time is the HW-F750 Sound Bar, which features old school vacuum tube technology for a true HiFi sound experience. I do not know about you, but paying $300 for a device that updates my TV just seems a bit excessive. For $39,999, I would expect my TV to at least be capable of updating itself through it's built in Wi-Fi or Gigabit Ethernet connection.
