Samsung QE55Q8C QLED

 

Samsung Q8C QLED review: Samsung's QLED technology meets a curved screen – with intriguing results.

Exceptionally bright, colourful HDR pictures ; Very watchable in ambient light ; Pretty design

It's rather expensive ; Backlight striping around stand-out bright HDR objects ; Banding with some HDR colour blends

Exaggerated backlight striping issues may be a distraction for dedicated home cinema fans. But for more casual users the Samsung QE55Q8C is a beautifully designed and uniquely talented TV that’s just about ‘out there’ enough to justify its £3000 price...

Samsung Q8C review: 4K HDR QLED 55-incher is the best choice for those who still hanker for a curved TV

 

Samsung QE55Q8C is the best curved TV you can buy but it's far more than just an offbeat shape

Dazzling 4K HDR performance ; High quality finish

No Freeview Play ; No Dolby Vision HDR support

Samsung Q8C 4K TV review: Spectacular QLED quality on a curve

 

There are times where the Samsung Q8C's pictures look genuinely spectacular, leaving you in no doubt as to QLED's potential as a TV technology. The

Boasts a lovely cable free design ; Exceptionally bright and colour-rich HDR pictures that hold up unprecedentedly well to bright room conditions

Curved screen will be divisive ; Backlight flaws are apparent with HDR content ; It’s not cheap

There are times where the Samsung Q8C's pictures look genuinely spectacular, leaving you in no doubt as to QLED's potential as a TV technology. The way its pictures still standout in ambient light make this particular set uniquely well qualified for...

Samsung Q8C QLED TV (QE55Q8CAMT) review

 

Samsung's QLED goes curved with intriguing results

Bright, colorful pictures ; Beautiful design ; Good smart system ; Resilient to ambient light

It’s relatively expensive ; Curved screen is divisive ; Some backlight banding ; Limited viewing angle

Thanks to the combination of Samsung’s new ultra-bright, ultra-colourful QLED technology and some remarkable screen filtering, the Q8C’s pictures look amazing, even in a typical bright living room environment. That being said, those looking for the...

Samsung QE55Q8C review

  (Rating Hidden)

This is one of Samsung's top-of-the-range TVs for 2017. And while the price tag may be eye-watering, the curved QE55Q8C is suitably impressive. But can the performance live up to the stunning good looks of this TV? We took it to the Which? Test Lab to...

Samsung QE65Q8C QLED 4K HDR TV Review

 

Samsung have promised a lot with their new QLED range of 4K Ultra HD LCD TVs but can the Q8C deliver the full potential of HDR?

Detailed accurate picture ; Local dimming effective with SDR ; Wide colour gamut ; High peak brightness ; Low input lag ; Easy to setup and use ; Great set of features ; Well made and attractive design

Local dimming can struggle with HDR ; Optimal viewing angles could be wider ; Expensive

The Q8C is more a series of refinements than anything ground-breakingly new from Samsung. As a result they have redesigned the look of this LED LCD TV and expanded their feature set, whilst also upgrading the Smart TV platform, the One Connect box and...

Samsung QLED Q8C/Q8 TV

 

The Samsung Q8C is a versatile curved 4k LED TV with a great design and good build quality thanks to its brushed metal finish. It gets decently bright, and it can reproduce one of the widest color volumes we've tested, which is great for HDR....

Very good color volume for HDR ; Low input lag for gaming ; Great handling of reflections

Picture quality degrades at an angle

Samsung QE55Q8C review

 

The Samsung QE55Q8C is a premium-build curved version of the Q7F. It uses identical QLED technology to produce amazingly bright, colourful images, and has a bigger sound system delivering 60W of total power. It's an amazing TV on every level, but its...

The Q8C is almost identical to the Q7F except that it's curved, with a premium all-metal build, and has a beefed-up audio system. We'd give it an easy 5 stars if it weren't for the vastly inflated price. You can buy last year's equivalent model, the...
