Samsung Q900 8K TV hands-on: Yes, this $15,000 TV has a great picture


But it's not because of all those extra pixels.

Samsung’s 85-inch Q900FN 8K TV Lands In The U.S.


Samsung's Q900FN will begin shipping in October, making it the first 8K TV available in the United States. But with no native 8K content available is this just a gimmick? Read on.

Samsung Q900/Q900R 8k QLED Review (QN55Q900RAFXZA, QN65Q900RAFXZA, QN75Q900RAFXZA, QN82Q900RAFXZA)


The Samsung Q900R is a great 8k LED TV with impressive picture quality. It can very bright both in SDR and in HDR. Although it has a VA panel, it has wide viewin...

Wide viewing angles, great for a VA panel. 8k resolution. Great local dimming and dark room performance.

A lot of dirty screen effect is evident on the screen.

The Samsung Q900 is a great TV for mixed usage. It has an impressive picture quality with good dark room performance that also remains accurate when viewed from the side. It has remarkable motion handling with very little motion blur and fast-moving...

Samsung Q900 smart TV review: This 8K TV will make you forget all about 4K


Samsung's best TV yet shows what's possible with 8K video. It also upscales lower-resolution material with aplomb.

8K UHD native resolution (7860 x 4320 pixels) ; High pixel density improves overall image with source material of every resolution ; Excellent remote control and overall industrial design

Very minor rendering issues with 4K UHD content ; No Dolby Vision support ; Upper-crust price tag

There are a couple of reasons to buy Samsung’s Q900: It future-proofs you in terms of resolution, and it’s the best LED-backlit LCD TV I’ve tested to date, despite the minor issues I discussed above. When it comes to rendering highlights and details,...

2019 75" Samsung Q900R QLED 8K TV review: An amazing TV experience


It's 2020, but we've only had the 2019 75" Samsung Q900R QLED 8K TV since mid-December, and it is a beast in so many ways.

Samsung's AI 8K Upscaling is great ; Xbox One X gaming is amazing ; This is the best display I've seen on a 2019 Samsung TV ; Built-In sound is fantastic ; Samsung's user interface is wonderful to use ; QLED just gets better in contrast and color ;...

Might be pricey for some ; The 2020 Q950TS is better (though more expensive) ; Heavy, large and awkward ; Takes 2-3 people to setup and you have to be very careful ; I wish the stand was like the Q90R

Now, congratulations if you’ve made it this far. This was a very difficult review to do. Why? Well, because I’ve already experienced the 2020 version of the Q900R, which is the 2020 Q950TS. The new flagship from Samsung runs circles around the Q900R....

Review: Samsung QE65 Q900R | 8K VS 4K TV: Technical Knockout Samsung QE65 Q900R


Is Samsung's smallest and cheapest 8K screen better than an ordinary good 4K TV? We review the Samsung QE65Q900R!

With true 8K resolution, the Samsung screen offers a fantastic, 3D-like image experience.

The difference from today's 4K screens is most evident in real 8K video material, which is currently in short supply.

With 33 million pixels and dazzling 3000 nits of brightness packed into a “small” 65-inch, the Samsung QE65Q900R can adorn itself with the title “The world’s smallest 8K TV”. The value of the extra pixels is best expressed with real 8K material, of...

Samsung QLED 8K 75-inch (Q900R) Review


While 4K TVs are becoming more popular than ever, TV makers such as Samsung are looking ahead to the next screen resolution which is 8K. I was able to test one of Samsung's QLED 8K TVs for a few weeks and it's a great TV but with a price tag that is...

Amazing 8K picture quality ; Wide viewing angles and bright display ; One Connect box makes it easier to connect devices to the TV ; Can easily upscale 1080p & 4K content to 8K ; Tizen interface is easy to use and navigate ; Offered in multiple screen...

Very expensive (twice or more than the cost of 4K TVs) ; No 8K content available ; The TV is very heavy (be careful when moving the TV)

The Samsung QLED 8K TV is a great option for those in the market that want a future-proof TV that offers amazing picture quality, lots of apps and has a simple yet elegant design.

Samsung Challenges OLED Supremacy with Next-Gen QLED


Samsung's QLED technology will get much better in 2018, if the gorgeous, richly colored displays we saw at CES 2018 are any indication.

Samsung QE75Q900R Review | Trusted Reviews


Samsung QE75Q900R review: delivers the most detailed, sharp and colourful pictures of any 75-inch TV, even when you're not watching native 8K content

Fantastically dynamic and punchy HDR pictures ; 8K resolution is mesmerising with native 8K content... ; ...but upscaled non-8K sources look outstanding too

Currently no native 8K content ; Limited viewing angles ; Some backlight instability in Standard preset

8K's influence isn't quite as dramatic at 75 inches, but it's still there and significant

Samsung QE85Q900R review: A stunning 8K TV and watershed moment for technology Review | Trusted Reviews


8K has arrived and it's far more than just another number

Native 8K pictures are like nothing you've seen before ; Brightness and colour are out of this world ; The upscaling processing makes 4K look better than it does on 4K TVs

Some occasional backlight issues ; Some occasional colour fading issues ; Sound is a little swallowed

The Samsung QE85Q900R is a watershed moment for television technology
