Samsung Q8 series: Samsung's awesome TV design meets a great picture


It's not quite as good as OLED, but Samsung's Q8 TV finally matches excellent image quality with the company's class-leading design and features.

The Samsung Q8 series serves up excellent image quality, with deep black levels, prodigious brightness, accurate color, superb video processing and powerful high dynamic range performance. It has sleek, modern styling and best-in class features. Its...

More expensive than many TVs with similar image quality, and not THAT much cheaper than an LG OLED. Bixby can't compete with Alexa or Google Assistant.

Samsung's Q8 has the image quality, design and cool extras to make a compelling alternative for high-end shoppers who don't want an OLED.

Good TV, but there are some things to be aware of.


This TV is very bright and when viewing 4K content almost appears 3D. Sound is good, not tinny, but if you want big base, you will need an external speaker. To connect to an external amplifier, if it only has analog speaker connections can only be done...
