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 2018 4K HDR LCD TV Review (QN65Q8FN, QN75Q8FN)

 

Excellent display brightness, Full-array LED backlighting with local dimming, High performance on contrast and black level, Incredibly good color performance, Great motion handling, Beautiful design, Decent price

Not nearly as high contrast as Q9FN, Poor native audio power, Weak on viewing angles, Local dimming could be better, Samsung won’t add Dolby Vision support

We really like the Samsung Q8FN and consider it to be a slightly better overall value than the Q9FN because it comes so close on important performance metrics while costing a fair bit less.

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

Picture quality degrades at an angle

Samsung Q8FN 4K UHD TV review: A great TV and a comparative bargain

 

It doesn't come with the One Connect breakout box you get with the Q9FN, but it offers nearly the same performance as higher-end model for $700 less.

Excellent color ; Lots of peak brightness to make HDR pop ; Affordably priced for a quantum dot TV

Doesn't support Dolby Vision ; Doesn't include the One Connect breakout box

Of all the 65-inch TVs I’ve tested in the $2,000 to $2,500 price range, the Q8FN is easily the best. Actually, it can hold its own with the finest TVs at any price point. The HDR is vibrant, the colors true, and the blacks very dark. The only caveat is...

2018 Samsung Q8F QLED 4K UHD TV review: Samsung's QLED TV tech gets better

 

Samsung is bringing the heat to OLED with big improvements in their QLED line of TV's. This is the 65" Samsung Q8F QLED 4K UHD TV review.

Stunning 4K UHD-HDR ; Deep blacks and rich whites ; Pretty great sound for a TV ; Wonderful smartTV interface ; Good build quality ; Solid performer and stands up to OLED easily ; Priced below $3,000 it may be steep but it is worth it

Price may be steep for some ; Samsung opted for a plastic back, would have liked to see a more premium material

Without a doubt, the Samsung Q8F QLED 4K UHD TV is pricey, even though it’s not their flagship. If you’ve reached the end of this review, then you’re probably the person who is considering dropping the cash for this type of investment. In the end, it...

The Samsung 65-inch Q8FN QLED TV manages to stand out among this year's excellent TVs with a premium design, rich feature set and performance that's on a par with the best premium TVs on the market. It offers great color, excellent HDR performance and...

Superb picture quality ; Impressive black levels ; Great 4.1 sound ; Full-array backlight

No OneConnect box ; No Dolby Vision support ; Minor light blooming

The Samsung 65-inch Q8FN QLED TV is a premium 4K TV that not only offers great picture quality and superb 4.1 sound, it can even compete with OLED displays, thanks to the best black levels we've seen on an LCD display.

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...

Samsung Q8FN (Q8DN) review

 

Q8 is a scaled-down version of Q9FN with fewer dimming zones. Q8 also features 4K, HDR, Tizen & Samsung's One Remote.
