Samsung QE55Q9FN

 

Samsung QE55Q9FN review: OLEDs are great, but LCDs are brighter. And this is the best 55-inch LCD TV we've ever reviewed.

Fantastically bright, colourful HDR pictures ; Unprecedentedly deep and uniform black levels for an LCD TV ; Good sound quality

Loses shadow detail in very dark scenes ; Limited viewing angles ; No Dolby Vision support

The Samsung QE55Q9FN combines unprecedentedly bright HDR peaks with the deepest, most consistent black levels the LCD TV world has ever seen.

Philips 803 (55OLED803 ) review: this might just be the best Philips OLED TV yet

 

It may not be for purists, but for the price, and with some seriously vibrant imagery on show, this fantastic Ambilight flatscreen is a great option for the rest of us

The P5 image processor with SDR-boosting Perfect Natural Reality is fantastic ; Three-sided Ambilight really adds something ; Great audio for such a thin screen

Limited catch-up TV options ; Only two HDMI inputs are fully specced for 4K ; No Dolby Vision HDR support

Samsung QE55Q9FN review

 

Samsung's flagship 55inch QLED TV could be an even better bet than an OLED

Bright and vibrant picture ; Deep, detailed, uniform blacks ; Lots of apps and features ; Power via OneConnect box ; Good motion

OLEDs go even blacker ; Sony does better motion ; Viewing angles aren’t perfect

The Q9FN is a stunning achievement from Samsung and a worthy rival to the best OLEDs around

Great picture spoiled by excessive local dimming

 

Really pleased with the QLED TV that I bought to replace my 10 year old Pioneer Kuro. I think that the picture is as good as the Kuro and it has very good black levels as well as very bright highlight areas. I do find that the FALD is a bit aggressive...

Great picture and user interface!

 

The TV looks fantastic, the one connect box gives the whole thing a clean look. Setting up was easy and the picture is great (I had to turn down the motion control setting a tad to bring up the picture quality). The user interface is quick and the...
