    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loaded With Features This TV is awesome. It is easy to setup, controls other components, looks fabulous mounted with Samsung zero gap mount. The clarity of the picture is something to behold. The Q8C is dynamic with 4K movies, games, or DirecTV programs. Progtams lesa than 4K look awesome thanks to excellent upscaling. My wife and I had bewn looking at TVs for a while and this one offers thw most bang for the buck. The apps make it easy to have a smooth transition from one activity to another. It is easy to setup, beautiful on it's stand or mounted. Future forward and ready for technology uet to come. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from first class home entertainment I have had this tv now for about 8 weeks and the performance is brilliant , easy to control and set up ,and being a curved tv is good in a corner of a room, streaming the apps is quick and easy although we do have a fiba optic network, the picture on this is vibrant colours as well as the black and white shades , and just one optic and one mains lead coming from the tv itself is good neat and tidy thanks to Samsung, best top of the range tv s on the market .

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Product Amazing! The Samsung QLED tv is definitely the first in technology. I am able to see up to a billion different hues and shades of color in my screen. Its virtually frameless so that you can focus on the pictures. It does not matter which angle you are sitting to experience the colors images. I believe it is the smartest television out in the market. It has a console that gives you the ability to connect online, view different apps and I can pair with my smart devices. I give it a 10, a Masterpiece. In my personal opinion, Ive never experienced a picture quality so clear and vivid. Anything i view whether its live HD tv or blu ray movies, the picture and sound is incredible. I am fascinated with the curvature, I initially had my doubts, yet I can confidently say while standing in any part of my living room, I am able to view the image, and most importantly admire the sleek design. I highly believe that the ease of use of the single remote control and layout of the menu makes this wonderful experience more interactive as if I'm in my own little movie theater. Its Perfect and I would highly recommend it [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Best Alternative to OLED Picture Quality: Watching HDR 4k content is like looking through a portal. Go to a store to see it in person. On default settings, it’s not much brighter than OLEDs, but in dynamic mode it’s extremely bright. Even in sunlight it felt a too bright. When watching in darkness it hurt my eyes. It uses edge lighting, which doesn’t have true blacks like an OLED. Instead, it uses 12 dimming blocks that control how much of the light it lets through. The only time I could find fault in the black levels was late at night viewing a mostly black scene. I could see splotches where more of the back light was visible than in other areas. That was the areas dimming differently, and is only noticeable in dynamic mode. Design: This is a very sleek TV. The bezel is VERY thin (5/16”), and the thickness is only 3/8” at the edges. The stand is also very sleek and thin, and it hides the power cord and the almost invisible cord that goes to the One Connect box. The curve is very subtle and provides a 0-degree viewing angle across the whole screen. It’s great if you sit primarily in front of the TV, but you should get the flat model if you have a wide room. Remote: The remote's very slim and sleek looking. It uses Bluetooth and the TV controls all my devices, so the remote functions like a universal remote. The remote is simplistic and doesn’t have all the buttons needed, but it uses onscreen commands for some of the buttons it doesn’t have. Sound: The speakers are impressive and can get quite loud. It has better bass than most TVs, but a sub-woofer is still deeper. I was also able to connect to Bluetooth speakers. Smart Features: This TV has tons of apps. Samsung has a phone app that functions as a remote and lets you stream media stored on your phone. With my Samsung S7 l could mirror the phone’s screen to the TV, and I could stream what’s on the TV to my phone. I watched TV in bed on my phone. It can also just stream the audio, great for watching TV late at night. Value: This has been the hardest part of my review, and why I only gave it 4 stars. At the time of this review these QLED TVs cost twice as much as what last years versions are currently selling for. At the store, I had to look closely to see any differences (the interface and smart features seem the same), but I could tell that Samsung has improved on it’s already great Quantum dot technology. The new QLEDs are brighter and the HDR colors are better than they were on last year's models. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Next Generation Visual Entertainment Upon opening the box, it was apparent that this is a Quality product. After connecting the 1 wire connection to the television, I powered it up. Almost instantly my Galaxy S7 notified me that there was another device seeking to communicate with it. This Television recognized my cell phone and was ready to share my Samsung account information, including the wireless signal for my home. This saved me a huge amount of time attempting to configure everything on it. Once connected to the internet, first thing I had to do was compare it to my older TV. The picture quality was above and beyond what I have been used to seeing. Streaming at 4K without the slightest lag was amazing. All of the colors were so vibrant, I could not tell if it was actually a picture, or looking out of the window next to it. After the comparison, I proceeded to mount it on the wall with a thin Wall Mount to complement the thickness of it. This thing is about the thickness of #2 lead pencil, so why use some bulky wall mount? The bezel isn't much thicker than the lead within that pencil, which brings up the point of almost not have an edge or almost an Infinity display like the S8. The clean Connection Hub keeps wires away from view of others allowing it complement the clean bezel around the edge. The ability to use my phone and a remote control, share the screen with my Galaxy, use my phone as a remote speaker or share pictures from your phone with ease make this the TV that everyone will enjoy using. It is not just a Television anymore, it is the home entertainment device. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from incomparable to others I had been very eager awaiting the new Samsung tv, considering Samsung is a common house hold name and their reputation speaks for itself. I knew I would be receiving a good and considerably big box item, but the moment it reached my footstep, I couldn't believe how lightweight just the packaging alone was. Moment's after unveiling my new tv, i felt relieved knowing that mounting or simply moving it around my place wouldn't be an additional burden. I am delighted to announce that sorting the cables and receiver was quite honestly the easiest part. Very easy to understand, and discreet to hide, (no more dangling wires). With my all in one remote I navigated through the home page swiftly, and instantly started enjoying my HD experience. Needless to say, QLED technology is something i've never experienced before. Whether it's playing fifa on a gaming system or streaming the videos you just took from your Samsung smartphone instantly onto your television screen, you can rest assure the quality will be nothing short but breathtaking. Going back to a proper location for the television, I was first curious to see the way the screen curves would affect the accuracy in quality. So i moved in certain angles finding its weak spot, fortunately I can be literally anywhere in my living room, including standing to the side of it, and still have the best seat in the house. I personally believe the curve edge provides my home and my style a more bold appearance. I am pleased with my decision and am positive this is a tv that will keep me entertained for many years to come. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Display, Sound and Design. Design: The Samsung QLED TV is a masterpiece! With its beautiful and well crafted thin borders measuring 0.8 CM, it produces an elegant presentation.The curve displays a luxurious look that will engage you and create a one of kind viewing experience. I own the Q7C 55’ model, which is a decent size but thanks to its thin borders and attractive design it displays like you have a much bigger panel. The QLED also features no inputs behind the television other than the smart connect hub which connects all your input platforms. It then connects to the TV through one HDMI that hides through the stand and above all, keeps all the wire clutter away from your TV and creates an invisible connection. Picture Quality: The new metal quantum dots technology brings the QLED colors to life; its shades and brightness levels of colors give a stunning picture and a realistic look. The QLED creates a vivid contrast image, bringing dark colors and bright colors to an extraordinary image. Out of the box the QLED has decent default preset settings but once the settings are set correctly, the QLED can produce a stunning 4k picture. Testing the QLED with a PlayStation 4 Pro and an Xbox One S really surprised me, both consoles pushed HDR content at a 4k resolution, and let me tell you, the results were stunning! Video games on the PS4 Pro look superb and very detailed, while 4K movies on the Xbox One S looked astonishing. Sound Quality: The Sound quality on the QLED is especially fantastic. The TV speakers will not replace any surround sound system, but it produces a rich sound with a deep bass, for such a thin television it's quite surprising. Smart TV and Control: In one place you can access your content platforms such as Netflix, Hulu, Youtube, Spotify, etc, as well as your settings, input sources, devices and search for content through all your connected platforms creating a brilliantly easy viewing experience. The One Remote features a microphone where you can speak commands, request TV shows without numbers or button clusters. Cons: Colors and contrast can become dull at certain viewing angles.The smart remote does rely heavily on the smart hub, so essentially, all your functions would be controlled through the television settings. Overall: The QLED TV's stunning and remarkable picture quality can easily engage you! Its bright and deep colors create a life-like viewing experience. This one of kind luxurious presentation is like placing an art masterpiece in your home. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
