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

Samsung Q9F - Qled met camouflagestand

 

Doordat de Q9F van dit jaar van een fald-backlight is voorzien, kan hij zich wat beeldkwaliteit betreft heel aardig meten met oleds. De kijkhoeken, de zwartweergave en het contrast zijn minder goed dan bij een oled, maar wat helderheid betreft is de...

Goede hdr-weergave ; Hoog contrast ; Lage inputlag ; Enkele dunne aansluitkabel

Hoge prijs ; Beperkte kijkhoeken ; Weinig knoppen op afstandsbediening ; Geen dts-geluid

Samsung GQ55Q9FN (55-Zoll-UHD-TV) im Test

 

Der Samsung GQ55Q9FN beweist im Test, dass ein Fernseher mit VA-Panel locker mit der hoch gelobten OLED-Konkurrenz mithalten kann. Der 55-Zoller zeigt von allen Quellen ein exzellentes Bild, punktet mit sattem Sound und bietet eine üppige Ausstattung...

Tolle Bild- und Tonqualität ; Üppige Ausstattung ; Sehr gutes Smart TV

Relativ hoher Verbrauch

Test Samsung Q9 2018 (QE55Q9FNAT) : notre avis - CNET France

 

Le Samsung Q9 2018 est l'un des meilleurs LCD du marché et sans aucun doute le meilleur Qled. Il marque en outre une belle progression par rapport au modèle...

Design général, boîtier OneConnect, Installation simple, connectique complète, OS et interface efficaces, bonne réactivité du TV, qualité d'image générale, taux de contraste satisfaisant, bonne fluidité, latence très basse en mode jeu, peu de reflets,...

Prix trop élevé, pied un peu encombrant, télécommande perfectible, upscaling moyen, fuites lumineuses encore trop importantes, des effets de pompage gênants, angles de vision encore trop restreints

Le Samsung Q9 2018 est l'un des meilleurs LCD du marché et sans aucun doute le meilleur Qled. Il marque en outre une belle progression par rapport au modèle précédent, mais reste plus cher que certains téléviseurs Oled pourtant plus performants côté...

Test: Samsung QE55QFN9

 

Mit dem 4K-TV QE55Q9FN präsentiert Samsung sein neues High-End-Modell. PCtipp hat den 55 Zoll grossen QLED-Fernseher bezüglich Bildqualität, Bedienung und Ausstattung im Praxisbetrieb getestet.

Bildqualität, Verarbeitung, Design, Ausstattung, Bedienung, Fernbedienung

«nur» Energieeffizienzklasse «B», kein USB-3.0-Port

Samsungs QE55Q9FN ist ein reifer Ultra-HD-Fernseher ohne echte Schwachpunkte. Bildqualität, Ausstattung, Design und Bedienung sind auf einem hohen Niveau.

First Look Samsung 55Q9FN

 

All'interno di un evento dedicato alla stampa romana che si è tenuto presso il punto vendita Garman, abbiamo effettuato un test preliminare del Q9FN, con pannello basato su tecnologia LCD VA (Vertical Alignment), retroilluminazione con tecnologia...

In attesa di poter effettuare un test approfondito, è già possibile fare qualche considerazione sul rapporto qualità prezzo. I diretti concorrenti dei nuovi Q9FN sono ovviamente i migliori TV LCD top di gamma come il Sony ZD9 e con prezzo quasi...

Superb Picture and Sharpness and Great Sound

 

Bought the TV about a month ago as a part of Boxing day sale. As usual, the sales team from Richer Sounds - Romford were superb and helped me in making a decision as per my requirements. They stayed a bit late after the closing hours just to finish my...
