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...

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...

Samsung Q8DN (QE55Q8DN) Review

Some 50Hz frame skipping and judder on some material ; Slow local dimming switching with some material ; Local dimming can be aggressive in highest setting clipping detail ; No Dolby Vision support ; Expensive when compared to competing screens with...

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.

Great Picture. Excellent Price.

 

I've had this TV for almost 1 month now and have finally managed to get my head around the various picture settings. The TV will give you an excellent picture but you may have to play around with the picture configuration and adjust it to your various...

Great TV. Just missing the Smart Hub

 

I have been using this for a week now and loving the TV. Picture quality is great, apps are very good and very quick. Only thing missing from this model is the Samsung smart hub but not too much of an issue unless mounting on the wall.
