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 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...
