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.

Samsung Q8FN / Q8F Q8 2018 TV

 

The Samsung Q8F / Q8 is a 2018 QLED TV with great picture quality, especially in a bright room due to the high peak brightness and excellent reflection handling. It performs very well for any usage with great motion handling, an excellent response...

Excellent wide color gamut ; Feels responsive due to low input lag ; Great motion handling

Samsung QN65Q8FN LCD Ultra HDTV Review

 

Quantum dots in Samsung's near-top-of-line QLED TV allow it to deliver exceptionally rich color. Add in a full-array backlight with local dimming and the QN65Q8FN amounts to a winning proposition from a picture quality standpoint.

Excellent color rendition; Deep, detailed-looking blacks; Full-array backlight with local dimming

Potentially confusing screen GUI and remote; Unreliable voice command feature; No Dolby Vision

Samsung Q8FN QLED TV (QN65Q8FN) review

 

Samsung's 2018 QLED TVs continue to impress

Extremely bright HDR pictures ; Exceptional contrast ; Good smart TV system ; Strong audio performance

Limited viewing angle ; Some mild backlight blooming ; No Dolby Vision ; Pricey in the UK

Inevitably, the Q8FN (Q8DN in the UK) is not as good as the Q9FN, as it only uses around a tenth as many backlight dimming zones as its illustrious sibling. Compared with pretty much all other LCD TVs, though, the Q8FN is still a fantastic TV that...

Consumer review (richersounds.com)

Great TV with wonderful attention to detail

 

The quality extends well beyond the TV itself - which of course has all the capabilities and wonderful picture quality you'd expect - even the packaging and installation workflow materials were perfect, and the automated installation went perfectly. It...

Consumer review (johnlewis.com)

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...
