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.

Exellent product from Samsung as always


This Q-LED is amazing. The colours are much more natural and the clarity is really crisp. So please we went with the Q Rather than an OLED by a different manufacturer. Samsung are masters at what they do.

Great value tv


This smart tv is very easy to set up, although the sound is no better than most it transfers through ARC nicely. The only problem I had initially was with connecting wirelessly, where it gave me a very unusual IP address. Connect through cable sorted...
