The One Connect is here - but with lots of issues

07 Jul 2014 | Rasmus Larsen |

Samsung has released its new Evolution Kits that allow owners of old Smart TVs to upgrade to the 2014 features. However, many buyers of the One Connect experience major issues.

Two new Evolution Kits

Samsung allows buyers of high-end Smart TVs to upgrade the hardware each year with the so-called Evolution Kit. The 2014 versions are now available throughout the US and Europe.

Samsung has released two Evolution Kits:

Smart Evolution Kit (Full HD)

  • Multilink Screen
  • SmartControl touch / motion remote
  • Works with 2012 Smart TVs (ES7000, ES8000, ES9000, and E8000) and 2013 Smart TVs (F7000, F8000 & F8500)
  • Model name: SEK-2000

    One Connect Box (Ultra HD)
  • Motion control with finger precision
  • Smart Hub 2014 start bar
  • Multilink Screen
  • HEVC support
  • HDCP 2.2 content protection
  • HDMI 2.0
  • USB 3.0 output
  • SmartControl touch / motion remote
  • Works with F9000
  • Model name: SEK-2500U

    Many buyers experience problems

    As last year’s F9000 model did not offer HDMI 2.0 and HEVC, which are essential for 4K playback, many owners are looking to upgrade via the One Connect, but buyers are experiencing major problems.

    Buyers are reporting issues about installation, faulty cables, image flickering, bad picture quality and a missing Netflix app.

    Samsung recommends that you install the last software before upgrading. Sometimes the latest software has to be downloaded from Samsung’s website and installed via USB. Samsung is also working on fixing the other issues and will release a software update in July that will bring back the Netflix app.
