Samsung Q8DN

 

Samsung Q8DN review: another outstanding LCD TV with direct lighting and local dimming. If your budget doesn't stretch to the Q9FN, check this out.

Spectacular high-contrast HDR pictures ; Vivid, precise HDR/WCG colour ; Potent audio

Currently looks a bit expensive ; Occasional backlight distractions, especially with off-axis viewing ; No Dolby Vision

Provided you’re sensible with your expectations, and maybe don’t mind waiting for its price to drop, the Samsung QE65Q8DN is another truly outstanding 2018 QLED TV.

Samsung Q8D (QE55Q8D) review: is it as sensational as the Q9FN 4K flagship?

 

Samsung's Q8D QLED TV is an impressive 4K screen that's more than a match for most HDR sources and makes a phenomenal gaming display

Excellent peak HDR brightness ; Convincing black level performance ; Superb gaming mode

No Dolby Vision HDR support ; No Freeview Play ; Q9FN is brighter and better value

Samsung QE55Q8DN review

 

Samsung's new screen makes its excellent direct backlight technology more affordable.

Excellent black performance for a non-OLED ; Vibrant but natural colours ; Superb detail and edge definition ; Neat gaming features ; So many apps

Loses the great OneConnect box ; Not as bright as the Q9FN ; Easily bested for sound quality

A Q9FN with the brightness dialled down, the Q8DN is an excellent alternative - if the price is right

Samsung QE65Q8DN 4K HDR QLED TV review

 

Samsung's flagship flatscreen for 2018, the QE65Q9FN, is the best 4K LCD TV I've ever experienced. Its combination of astonishing brightness and the sort of black levels only OLED TVs used to manage make it a dream to watch. The lure of the QE65Q8DN on...

Samsung QE55Q8DN review

 

Majestic QLED

Great for HDR content ; Easy to use interface ; Brighter than any OLED rival

Sound not up to scratch without soundbar

£2k is a lot of money for a TV, but the Q8 is worth every penny

Samsung Q8DN (QE55Q8DN) review: QLED brilliance for less?

 

Samsung's Q8DN boasts all the usual QLED plus points, but the price puts it up against the very cream of the crop

Excellent bright-room performance ; Low input lag; great for gaming ; High peak brightness and colour volume serve up stunning HDR

Narrow viewing angles ; Over-aggressive local dimming in dark scenes ; Priced too close to the superior Q9FN flagship QLED

However, there is a big but and we cannot lie: when the markedly superior QE55Q9FN can be bought for only £100 more there’s simply no reason to pick the Q8DN. If prices tumble and the Q8DN is heavily discounted then it may definitely be worth...

Samsung QE55Q8DN television review

  (Rating Hidden)

With only one range above it in Samsung's 2018 line up, the 55-inch QE55Q8DN (sometimes called the QE55Q8DNATXXU) should be one of the best TVs available. The QLED display should be crisp and dazzlingly bright, the interface accomplished and easy to...

The Q8DN is undoubtedly a very good LED LCD TV that has many of the attributes of its bigger brother the and also some foibles that slightly detract from the overall package. Our main concerns are the local dimming being a tad slow in some scenes and...

great picture and sound

 

easy to set up picture quality did not disappoint and sound very good stand could have been better so thinking of putting on wall as i feel the the tv which is a 55 inch could easily be toppled over.
