Back at CES in January, Samsung appear its 2017 band of exceptional UHD TVs, dubbed QLED. Yeah that name looks a lot like OLED, but don’t be fooled: the appendage of the Q makes all the difference. QLED TVs are still acceptable LCD TVs that use an LED-based ablaze source. The Q stands for Quantum dots, a technology that Samsung has been application in its exceptional UHD TVs for several years now to advice aftermath the added blush area of the Ultra HD spec. You can apprehend our aboriginal adventure about Quantum dots here.
So what’s altered about this year’s TVs to affect Samsung to do abroad with the antecedent “SUHD” name and embrace “QLED” instead? Well, to be honest, some of it is aloof business allege (Samsung has said it would like added manufacturers to embrace the QLED name to announce the use of Quantum dot and LED technologies). However, Samsung has fabricated improvements to its Quantum dot technology, abacus a new metal actual that’s advised to advance blush accurateness and luminance efficiency. In agreement of blush performance, Samsung says that the new QLED TVs aren’t aloof able of breeding the DCI P3 blush space, but that they’re able of 100 percent blush aggregate aural that space–which agency that the TVs can accurately authentic the colors at a array of accurateness levels. If you appetite to apprentice added about the accent of blush volume, watch the aboriginal few account of this video from the association at Portrait Displays who advance the CalMAN arrangement software that we (and appealing abundant everybody else) use for our affectation evaluations.
The 2017 QLED calendar consists of three series: Q9, Q8, and Q7. All three alternation use bend LED lighting with bounded concealment (Samsung did not acquaint a full-array backlit archetypal this year), and all abutment the HDR10 (and HDR10 ) and HLG Aerial Dynamic Ambit formats, but not Dolby Vision. All three alternation additionally abutment DCI-P3 color, accept a 120Hz brace amount to abate motion blur, and affection Bluetooth and Samsung’s Acute Hub acute TV platform. The top-shelf Q9 Alternation has a collapsed architecture and uses Samsung’s “Infinite Array” bend lighting alone forth the abandon of the screen, while the Q8 Alternation is a arced architecture with bend lighting forth the top and bottom. Otherwise, their achievement specs are identical. (The step-down Q7 combines arced and collapsed designs and allegedly uses a beneath able-bodied apostle system.)
The Q8 Alternation includes awning sizes of 55, 65, and 75 inches. The 65-inch QN65Q8C that I advised carries an MSRP of $3,499.99.
Setup and FeaturesIf you like the anatomy agency of a arced TV, I anticipate you’ll absolutely like the QN65Q8C’s appearance. Samsung put a stronger accent on architecture with this year’s flagship offerings, and they absolutely do attending nice. The QN65Q8C has no bezel, aloof a about quarter-inch atramentous bound aural the awning itself. The alien bend of the awning has a brushed argent finish, and the analogous basement bend is basically an angled bar that extends aback abaft the awning and again comes avant-garde to the avant-garde and attaches to a long, thin, hardly arced stabilizing bar. The bend elevates the TV about four inches off the tabletop, which is a acceptable acme to anticipate abounding of today’s soundbars from blocking any allotment of the screen. The absolute behind is additionally brushed silver, with analogous panels to awning any and all gaps, for a clean, seamless look. This 65-incher weighs 58.4 pounds after the bend and measures 4.2 inches abysmal (factoring in the curve); Samsung offers an alternative $150 no-gap wall-mount, although I’m not abiding a air-conditioned humble arise is account the advance back you put a arced console into it.
Most of the QN65Q8C’s inputs abide on the abstracted One Affix box, which connects to the TV via a proprietary cable. This year, said cable is a actual thin, ablaze fiber-optic cable that comes formed in a small, white, elastic puck. The cable measures about 15 anxiety long, giving you lots of adaptability to locate the One Affix box far from the TV. Add in the cable’s nigh-invisibility adjoin the wall, and it’s addition way that Samsung has focused on creating a apple-pie attending about your TV.
The One Affix box contains four HDMI 2.0a inputs with HDCP 2.2 archetype protection, three USB inputs (two 3.0, one 2.0) for media playback and the affiliation of borderline devices, an RF input, and an optical agenda audio output. This year Samsung additionally confused the LAN anchorage and the EX-Link ascendancy anchorage to the One Affix box; they aforetime resided on the TV itself. Now the alone access on the TV are the One Affix anchorage and the adeptness port. The TV additionally has 802.11ac Wi-Fi for a wireless connection, as able-bodied as Bluetooth to wirelessly affix peripherals like headphones, speakers, and keyboards.
The small, Bluetooth-based alien ascendancy is about identical in admeasurement and on blueprint to aftermost year’s exceptional remote, and it has the aforementioned brushed argent accomplishment as the TV. There are 10 ons in all, additional a aeronautics wheel. The alien lacks backlighting, but it appearance articulation ascendancy (for both TV functions and agreeable searches) and the aforementioned aloft volume/channel ons that I admired on aftermost year’s UN65KS9800; the ons are like little levers that you advance up and bottomward to ascendancy aggregate and approach changing, and you can calmly feel them in a aphotic room. Maybe it’s aloof my imagination, but I acquainted like all the ons were a little afterpiece calm this year. I generally begin myself accidentally hitting the Home on back I meant to hit the Bottomward on that sits aloof aloft it.
As usual, this Samsung TV is loaded with avant-garde account adjustments, including two- and 20-point white antithesis adjustment, assorted blush spaces, an adjustable backlight, a abounding blush administration system, and babble reduction. This year’s Gamma ascendancy reinforces the TV’s HDR nature, with options for HLG and ST.2084, as able-bodied as BT.1886 for SDR content. The TV switches automatically to the actual gamma approach to clothing the agreeable actuality displayed, and slider controls are accessible to acclimatize the gamma accurateness aural anniversary mode. For motion becloud and beating reduction, the Auto Motion Additional card includes options for Off, Auto (which includes smoothing/frame interpolation), and Custom (with absolute becloud and beating controls). You can additionally accept how advancing you appetite the bounded concealment action to be through a card advantage that’s now succinctly alleged “Local Dimming”–the Low advantage provides the darkest atramentous akin and the best advancing dimming, and the Aerial ambience produces the brightest image–it’s the absence advantage back the TV switches into HDR mode.
Speaking of HDR, the QN65Q8C will automatically about-face into HDR approach back it detects an HDR source, and the QLED models absolutely accept three HDR account modes to accept from: HDR Standard, HDR Natural, and HDR Movie. Back aing alien UHD sources like an Ultra HD Blu-ray player, you charge to accomplish abiding that the TV’s HDMI UHD Blush is enabled for the HDMI ascribe you use (this can be begin beneath General settings, in the Alien Accessory Manager section). In my analysis sample, UHD Blush was enabled for HDMI 1 and 2 out of the box. As with aftermost year’s UN65KS9800, this TV includes Samsung’s HDR technology that allows you to force the TV into HDR approach with SDR sources–and, as with aftermost year’s TV, I absolutely didn’t use HDR that much. Yes, it makes a absolutely ablaze image, but it aloof doesn’t attending accustomed or authentic to my eyes.
On the audio side, the TV appearance a 60-watt, 4.2-channel front-firing apostle system, and the card includes three complete modes (Standard, Optimized, and Amplify), with a seven-band equalizer, a antithesis control, and a adjournment adjustment. You can change the audio input/output formats and brace your TV with Bluetooth speakers. The complete affection is admirable for a flat-panel TV; I didn’t accept to advance the aggregate too aerial to get acceptable dynamics, and vocals did not accept that hollow, nasal affection that’s so accepted in today’s TVs.
Samsung did not decidedly redesign its Acute Hub Web belvedere this year, and that’s a acceptable thing–since I absolutely admired what the aggregation did with it aftermost year, as advised in the UN65KS9800. Abiding there are some accessory differences, but the basal blueprint and aeronautics elements are similar. Hitting the remote’s Home on brings up the aboriginal row of the Acute Hub toolbar, which includes casework like Netflix, Amazon Video, YouTube, Google Play, and VUDU, as able-bodied as options for Settings, Sources, Sports, Music, Internet, and more. Back you highlight a authentic service, a additional row ancestor up that takes you added into the agreeable options for that service. For instance, if you annal over to YouTube, you’ll see absolute links to accepted or recommended clips. If you’ve active in to Netflix, you’ll see your afresh beheld shows and movies. It’s all actual glossy and accessible to action after actuality anytime confusing to the agreeable you’re currently watching on the screen.
Cross-platform chase is accessible via both articulation and text. For instance, I batten “Lego Batman” into the remote’s microphone, and got options to hire it through Amazon, YouTube, VUDU, and FandangoNOW.
In agreement of UHD-friendly apps, Netflix, Amazon Video, YouTube, Google Play, and FandangoNow all affection UHD content, and Samsung has assuredly added the UHD adaptation of VUDU. Netflix, Amazon, YouTube, and Google Play action HDR agreeable in the HDR10 architecture for you to watch, but VUDU alone offers Dolby Vision HDR, which won’t assignment here. The apps launched quickly, played reliably, and consistently enabled HDR back they were declared to.
As with antecedent high-end models, the QN65Q8C offers a accepted alien ascendancy action area you can calmly set up the alien to ascendancy your cable/satellite box and added sources, after the charge to attach an IR cable. You can do this during antecedent setup, or the TV will auto-detect back you’ve absorbed a new accessory via HDMI and ask if you appetite to set it up. I affiliated an Apple TV, and the QN65Q8C calmly articular it and set up the alien control. It additionally added an Apple TV figure to the Acute Hub toolbar so I could cross anon to that antecedent after accepting to cull up the Antecedent menu. I approved aing three altered Blu-ray players at altered times: the Oppo UDP-203, the Sony UBP-X800, and the Samsung UBD9500. The TV accurately articular them all as Blu-ray players and created a Acute Hub card advantage for them, but it alone set up the alien to ascendancy (strangely enough) the Sony player. The alien did not ascendancy the Samsung or Oppo players.
PerformanceAs always, I began my official appraisal of the QN65Q8C by barometer the assorted account modes aloof as they appear out of the box, to see which one is the aing to accepted advertence HD standards. As I expected, the Cine approach was the best accurate, but I was afraid that the out-of-the-box numbers weren’t bigger (see the archive on folio two for added info). Usually, Samsung’s Cine approach is aing to advertence standards after too abundant acclimation required, but this TV’s Cine approach had a college best gray-scale Delta Error of 17.96, and the Delta Errors for the blush credibility were additionally in bifold digits. I estimated from the numbers that I was ambidextrous with a luminance issue, as both the gamma and blush luminance were way off target. Again I noticed that the QN65Q8C’s Cine approach is set by absence to the “Medium” Bounded Concealment approach instead of the darker “Low” mode. The simple act of switching the Bounded Concealment approach to Low resulted in abundant added authentic altitude after-effects beyond the board. The blush temperature was still a little too air-conditioned (or blue) with brighter signals, but the best gray-scale Delta Error fell to 5.5, and the blush credibility abstinent decidedly better, with cyan actuality the atomic authentic at a Delta Error of aloof 3.3. So, if you buy this TV and about-face to the Cine approach (as you should), bethink to additionally go with the Low Bounded Concealment ambience for the best accurateness (and atramentous level).
Should you accept to accept the QN65Q8C professionally calibrated, you can adore alike bigger results. I was able to punch in a actual aloof blush temperature, get a gamma boilerplate appropriate at 2.2, and lower the max gray-scale Delta Error to aloof 1.1. Plus, Samsung’s blush administration arrangement accustomed me to punch in awful authentic blush points. (A agenda to calibrators and DIY enthusiasts: the 2017 adaptation of CalMAN supports auto arrangement of all Samsung QLED TVs, so you don’t accept to accomplish all the adjustments manually. I didn’t accept the all-important cables to do this.)
Samsung says that one of the improvements owed to the new Quantum dot technology is an access in “luminance efficiency,” which translates into bigger accurateness and a bigger atramentous level. The TV’s brightest account approach with SDR agreeable is the Dynamic mode, which abstinent 187 ft-L (644 nits) with a full-white 100-IRE pattern. Compare that with aftermost year’s UN65KS9800 full-array console at 182 ft-L. Of course, the Dynamic approach is additionally woefully inaccurate. The added authentic Cine approach abstinent a still-high 95 ft-L (330 nits), which is abundantly ablaze for watching TV in a ablaze room–too ablaze for movie-watching in a dim to aphotic room, though, so I bargain the accurateness to about 45 ft-L during the arrangement process. The TV’s cogitating awning does an accomplished job abnegation ambient ablaze to advance adverse in ablaze examination conditions, so the sports and HDTV shows that I watched during the day looked fantastic, with affluent abyss and blush and abundant detail.
While the QN65Q8C is actual bright, it’s not as ablaze as the brightest LED/LCD TV I’ve abstinent to date. That account belongs to Sony’s XBR-65Z9D, which maxed out at 210 ft-L in its brightest SDR account mode. With HDR signals, the QN65Q8C didn’t absolutely get to the 1,500- to 2,000-nit ambit that Samsung says is accessible with the QLED line. It abstinent 1,180 nits at 100-IRE in a 10 percent window, while the Sony Z9 abstinent 1,800 nits. But it is a lot brighter than my 2015 advertence LG OLED at 436 nits.
Another declared account of the bigger Quantum dot tech is that blush assimilation holds up at added examination angles, and that accepted to be true. I begin that, with brighter TV shows and sports, the QN65Q8C’s examination bend was abundant added than that of best LCDs I’ve tested; I was able to move absolutely far off-axis and still get abundant blush performance. However, the atramentous akin still accouterment off-axis, so darker scenes don’t authority up as able-bodied at added examination angles.
Now let’s allocution about that all-important atramentous level. It’s no abstruse that I adopt full-array LED panels to edge-lit ones. Bend lighting is actual difficult to do well, and these panels generally ache from accurateness accord issues, area assertive genitalia of the awning (often the corners and edges) are acutely brighter–which is best ambiguous back watching aphotic scenes in a aphotic room. I can cautiously say that the QN65Q8C is one of the best edge-lit panels I’ve anytime reviewed: I saw no ablaze drain at the corners and no patches of accurateness (clouding) anywhere about the screen. Overall, the atramentous akin is absolutely good, acceptance best cine scenes to attending actual affluent and able-bodied saturated in a aphotic room–and the TV’s adeptness to carbon the finest atramentous capacity was excellent. However, with my admired black-level audience scenes from Gravity (BD), Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation (BD), Flags of Our Fathers (BD), and The Bourne Supremacy (DVD), as able-bodied as scenes from Star Trek Beyond (BD), Sicario (UHD), and Pacific Rim (UHD), the QN65Q8C couldn’t absolutely accumulate clip with my advertence LG 65EF9500 OLED TV or the Sony Z9. The LG consistently produced a deeper, added absolute atramentous level, which led to bigger contrast. The QN65Q8C does aftermath some afterglow or aura about ablaze altar (a accepted affair with local-dimming LED displays): the atramentous areas about argument and added ablaze altar were acutely lighter than they were on the OLED; however, based alone on my anamnesis and my notes, I’d say that this TV produces beneath confusing afterglow than aftermost year’s KS9800, alike admitting that archetypal was a full-array panel.
Two areas area the Samsung QN65Q8C excels, with both HDR and SDR content, are blush depth/accuracy and processing. Measurements accepted that the TV is absolutely able of 100 percent blush aggregate in the DCI-P3 blush space, compared with my advertence 2015 LG OLED that’s able of 84 percent. The HDR Cine account approach is far and abroad the best authentic of the three HDR modes and the alone one I acclaim that you use. As I confused through my armory of UHD Blu-ray discs–including Billy Lynn’s Continued Halftime Walk, Pacific Rim, and Batman vs. Superman–the QN65Q8C consistently served up abundant color, with reds, blues, and greens that looked richer and additionally added authentic than those of the OLED. In the processing department, the QN65Q8C anesthetized all of my 480i and 1080i processing tests, both with analysis patterns and real-world signals. The account is actual apple-pie back the Agenda Apple-pie View babble abridgement is enabled, and I saw mostly bland light-to-dark transitions and basal blush amalgamation in scenes from Gravity, Batman vs. Superman, and Sicario.
