Samsung Q8DN

 

Samsung Q8DN review: another outstanding LCD TV with direct lighting and local dimming. If your budget doesn't stretch to the Q9FN, check this out.

Spectacular high-contrast HDR pictures ; Vivid, precise HDR/WCG colour ; Potent audio

Currently looks a bit expensive ; Occasional backlight distractions, especially with off-axis viewing ; No Dolby Vision

Provided you’re sensible with your expectations, and maybe don’t mind waiting for its price to drop, the Samsung QE65Q8DN is another truly outstanding 2018 QLED TV.

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 QE65Q8DN 4K HDR QLED TV review

 

Samsung's flagship flatscreen for 2018, the QE65Q9FN, is the best 4K LCD TV I've ever experienced. Its combination of astonishing brightness and the sort of black levels only OLED TVs used to manage make it a dream to watch. The lure of the QE65Q8DN on...

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

 

Samsung's Q8 range has a late entry for it's UK release with the introduction of the Q8DN, a direct backlit FALD set which promises Q9 image quality...

Good image accuracy ; Excellent colour after calibration ; Strong black levels and shadow detail when viewed on axis ; Excellent input lag and gaming performance ; Impressive image processing ; Excellent 24fps motion ; Video processing and upscaling is...

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...

Samsung 65Q8DN im Test: Ein äußerst brillanter QLED-TV - PC Magazin

 

Samsungs QLED-TV-Serie Q8 bekommt Nachwuchs. Neben den flachen und gewölbten Modellen Q8FN und Q8CN bringt der Hersteller jetzt den Q8DN auf den Markt, der als Einziger direkt lokales Dimmen besitzt, also ein besonders kontrastreiches Bild verspricht.

viel Smart-TV ; knalliges HDR ; guter Sound

keine Analogeingänge

Testurteil: überragend; Preis/Leistung: sehr gut; video-Highlight; IFA-Highlight

TEST: Samsung QE55Q8DN - Turboladet TV fra Samsung | Lyd & Bilde

 

Midt i den travleste TV-sesongen trekker Samsung et spennende kort ut av ermet. Kan QE55Q8DN rett og slett være årets beste TV-kjøp fra koreanerne?

Knallsterk kontrast og overbevisende svartnivå til en gunstig pris, gjør Q8DN til et interessant alternativ til Samsungs egen Q9 toppmodell.

Utstyr og finesser er noe redusert, og innsynsvinkelen er begrenset.

Samsung 65Q8DN (Test) – audiovision

 

Der 65Q8DN ist der zweite QLED von Samsung mit vollflächiger Hintergrundbeleuchtung. Nicht nur auf die Darstellung von tiefem Schwarz wirkt sich das positiv aus. Mit dem 3.100 Euro teuren 65Q8DN hat Samsung nach dem 65Q9FN jetzt ein zweites Modell mit...

Nach dem 65Q9FN ist der 65Q8DN der zweit­beste LCD-TV, den wir bislang in unsere Testfinger bekommen haben. Tolles Bild, üppige Ausstattung, hoher Bedienkomfort – hier stimmt alles. Jedoch fällt die preisliche Differenz zum Flaggschiff mit 200 Euro...
