Samsung NU8000: good for all uses 2018

The Samsung NU8000 is a mid-high-end TV for 2018. The image quality is very good if we see it from the front, good for a dark room or to see with the lights off. The level of brightness is also good so it adapts well to bright rooms. Like all VA panels the viewing angle is reduced, recommended for watching from the front. The inputlag is low: good for gamers. This model evolves a bit the MU8000 of the previous year, with something better for HDR content. The audio is correct to watch TV but it is not enough for movie lovers or who want to listen to music with the TV.
  • The best: image quality in any light situation and gamers
  • The worst: Limited viewing angle
* Model NU8500 is the same but with curved screen.

Our opinion Samsung NU8000 (veredict):

Our opinion about the Samsung NU8000 is good in general. It is a television that adapts well to all kinds of uses, it is a balanced television in our opinion, the NU8000 is good in sports, TVShows, movies in high quality, gamers etc ... it is also a TV that adapts well to dark or bright rooms although it is not at the level of the best of the year as the QLED.

The weak point is the same that accompanies Samsung in recent years: the VA panel is not recommended if you usually watch it from the sides. The audio does not stand out either, we almost always recommend buying an external sound bar. We recommend you buy the Samsung NU8000 as a good TV for all uses whenever you are going to watch it centered.

Samsung Q7FN: The Cheapest QLED 2018

The Samsung QLED Q7FN TV is one of the high-end 2018 LCD-LEDs that can be purchased. The image quality is good, we highlight its brightness level with a higher brightness and more intense colors thanks to the so-called quantum dots. The panel is 10-bit EdgeLED VA, of course compatible with UltraHD 4K and HDR10 resolution, so it offers good contrast, not as good as the Q9 series for backlight control. The Q7FN is well equipped with 4 HDMI ports and 3 USB ports, includes all the necessary tuners, including double tuner to record one channel while watching another. All connections are in the One-Connect-Box. The level of Audio is somewhat higher than the competition: 40W. The Smart platform is one of the best: Tizen, and includes some extra news such as Smart Things or Ambiente mode.

Our opinion Samsung Q7FN (veredict):

It is a television that is in the middle point between the price of acceptable LCDs and the expensive Q9F, within the reach of very few. The Q6F would be for those looking for a smaller screen: 49 inches or have a more tight budget. The viewing angle has improved and is wide enough to be a TV with VA panel. As images very similar to the QLED Q8 but not being FALD as the Q9 is behind in quality and uniformity of light. As extras the design is modern and the Smart and some new extras are included, but we do not believe they are decisive factors in choosing the new TV.

Samsung QLED Q9FN: Best TV 2018?

The Samsung QLED Q9FN is the best TV of Samsung for 2018. The top TVs of the other brands are OLED and this is LCD-LED with Samsung's own technology: QLED. Since a few years ago, the best televisions are undoubtedly the OLED, but this year QLED is a breakthrough in image quality to balance that competition. Although the OLED TV has deeper blacks, with additional zones of local attenuation solve the problems of loss of light. QLED Q9FN's overall image quality is excellent, with more color than OLEDs, more brightness, good viewing angle, not as much as the best IPS or OLED, but enough. In other respects the Samsung Smart is still the best. In audio it is fine but a sound bar will always be heard better.
  • The best: Better HDR image
  • The worst: Limit vision angle.

Our opinion Samsung Q9FN (veredict):

Our opinion about the Samsung QLED Q9FN is very good, the truth this year Samsung has achieved, with its best TV, equal to the direct competition of the other brands: the OLED. Although in no case a QLED television has such deep blacks, it has a more than acceptable level, very good what is invited with greater brightness and spectacular color reproduction makes us opt for this TV as the best to watch HDR quality content . What we can say about this TV is that the angle of vision, although acceptable, is somewhat lower than the competition and that Sony's Motion is still superior, not only to Samsung but to other brands as well. This is an excellent TV, a top model for those looking for the best of the best regardless of the price because it is really expensive. The direct competition of the Samsung Q9FN is the oled models like LG C8 or Sony A1.

What Smart 2018 is better?

The SmartTV platform is the "smart" part of the TV. Currently, among all (or almost all) televisions include this platform and each brand has its own system. The Smart platform allows us to access the Internet, use applications, talk to the TV, share a mobile screen, access menus, ...

It must be made clear that surfing with a TV is not the same as doing it with a computer or SmartPhone, it is much more cumbersome and we think that the main use are some applications such as YouTube or Internet TV platforms.
The platforms are:
  • Samsung: Tizen
  • LG: webOS
  • Panasonic: MyHomeScreen
  • Sony: AndroidTV
For a few years in terms of stability and fluidity the Samsung and LG are superior, also have more applications than the rest. Android is expected to update the system to AndroidTV 8.0 this year but for now the system is not very fluid. MyHomeScreen by Panasonic has fewer applications available.

We consider as one of the most important aspects the TV-on-demand applications that are available.
NetFlix: Tizen, webOS, MyHomeScreen, AndroidTV
HBO: Tizen

News of Samsung 2018 TVs?
Samsung still does not launch OLED model in 2018, so if you look for the best of the best you should look for a TV of another brand. The best Samsung TVs are the QLED, where the maximum brightness stands out.

Smart is updated to Tizen 4.0 but with few new features, it was already one of the best and still in the lead.
