Samsung 8K QLED TV – 85-inch Q900 – Hands On Review



Samsung gave us a day to put its Q900 85-inch 8K TV to the test, and we did our level best to poke holes in its performance. In the end, the TV proved it is worthy of its existence, even if 8K content is nowhere to be seen.

    So is it correct to say that the Q900R can't show 8K native content? The inputports don't support 8K and the built-in video codecs can't decode 8K internet streams? So it is a 8K display with a highly advanced 4k/Full HD upscaler to 8K?

    Great video. Hope Samsung implement new processor on next 4K Q10fn
    A q9 successor with better upscaling, shadow details and dimming…plus hdmi 2.1
    Looks like 2019 could be a good year
    Mini led on top will be awesome but that’s too much asking at a descent price…

    This looks fantastic, and not that bad of a price either for a first-gen product £5k for 65'' version. Still a lot, but doable. My concerns are with HDMI 2.1, I can't in good conscience pick it up without it, and I'll need to see it do 4k 120hz & VRR. Or they could've added USB-C as a stop-gap to it as well until they sort it out. Otherwise, can wait until next version, np. GPUs don't have HDMI 2.1 yet either. For me it would be for gaming, even at 4K raising render scale to 200% looks unbelievable, and can only imagine how much better it would look with double the pixel density. Insane! Best thing – even if you game at 4K the extra PPI STILL makes a big difference, a win all around.

    Still artificially created LED light from non glowing material. (harsh and poor quality light)
    Bring back the natural phosphor glow from the Plasma tvs then we can talk about natural looking colors.

    really they are only styling the pig some here

    What I want in a tv is <5ms pixel response time, HDR, 240 hz refresh rate, freesync or g-sync, 3-D, and 4K. 8K is pointless now and for at least 3 more years.

    So Samsung starts making 8k TV beacuse Sony, LG (zf9, c8, af9 or w8) make better 4k tv's and they have the special contract for a t.v. manufacture to supply consumers with 8ks. A market they can dominated beacuse they get a from the rest of the competition.
