Samsung Q950TS QLED
The Samsung Q950TS is a very valuable advancement in 8K
technology. Its original 8K image fidelity is almost declining, and in the real
world, it is an upgraded version of 4K content that you can buy at any price.
The price and lack of local content make it an undeniable special purchase, but
it is hard to imagine someone looking at the pictures it provides and hoping to
The Samsung Q950TS is part of the company's latest and most
consistent attempt to persuade the masses of buyers to buy a large number of
TVs with out-of-specification specifications that is not only reasonable, but
actually a wise proposition.
This is a difficult selling point for two reasons. First, 8K
TVs are very expensive, while on the other hand, there is almost no native
content available. But Samsung is indeed trying to democratize this technology
at least because it seems to want to keep the price of its 8K TVs on the
Yes, there are 8K cameras, and yes, Netflix has obviously
used it to develop certain content. Yes, if the Tokyo Olympics this summer does
not succumb to the paranoia of the coronavirus, then the Japanese broadcaster
NHK plans to broadcast the entire "shooter" in 8K. However, in
reality, any meaningful amount of 8K content still has a long way to go.
However, if you want to provide any reason for it, the
Q950TS will have to do wonders with the lower resolution things that it takes
all the time to display. Fortunately, it did.
Samsung Q950TS QLED Price and release date
Samsung Q950TS is Samsung's flagship 2020 QLED TV. American
shoppers have only one 85-inch model, which is priced at $12,999.
For UK shoppers, the 75-inch model is quite expensive at
£7,999 (reviewed here), although the price of the 65-inch model can be reduced
to £5,999, or the price of the 85-inch model can be increased to £11,999.
Samsung Q950TS QLED Design
To be honest, expectations for TV design are low. As long as
the screen is large and not the bezel, a lot of work can be done.
For Q950TS, Samsung has caused a sensation.
A 75-inch screen is a big language for anyone, and Samsung
has managed to wrap it in the shortest bezel that has actually been seen on a
production TV. The thickness is only 2 mm, almost non-existent-if you are at a
reasonable distance from this TV, it will indeed disappear from sight. With
party tricks, this is a good choice.
The 15mm depth of the chassis is almost impressive.
Obviously, QLED technology requires a layer of backlight, so it will never be
able to achieve the amazing ultra-thin appearance of its main competitor OLED,
but since Samsung has taken all input, output and power requirements out of the
board, Q950TS does not have OLED- There is a blocky or protruding pattern at
any position on the back of its frame.
All inputs-four HDMI jacks (one of which is 2.1
specifications), three USB inputs, RF and satellite TV antenna poles, and an
Ethernet jack-are all contained in the sizable One Connect box. It also has a
digital optical output and can even handle mains power-just a moderate
connection to the TV itself. Therefore, if you plan to wall mount an expensive
new TV, it will be placed almost flush.
However, if you don’t have enough spare walls, Samsung will
happily sit on its central base. From here, it tilts back more than three
degrees in order to aim the screen at your eyes instead of the belt line.
Because you don’t plan to stand on such a high TV, do you? You don’t want to
watch TV as if you are sitting next to a screen in a movie theater.
Design TL; DR: External connection, slim chassis and
ultra-thin frame make it one of the most discreet 75-inch TVs around.
Samsung Q950TS QLED Performance
Oh, of course, Samsung seems not to be missed when
displaying native 8K content. However, unless you are in a very privileged
position, the 8K content you will see is the same as the 8K content I saw:
beautiful electronics worthy of blooming shots, bustling city landscape panning
shots, close-up shots of beautiful animals.
Yes, everything looks great. Colorful, high-contrast,
luxurious details...but, until any meaningful 8K content is provided on the
disc or through streaming services, for taking out a credit card (or not
applicable for Q950TS).
Samsung Q950TS QLED Sound
If you are considering spending a small sum of money on a
new TV, but do not have a sound system with the right budget, you must go
through some unique thinking processes. However, Samsung is still solving the
problem of what is generally considered to be the “bad” sound of its 2019 8K
model by deploying something called “Object Tracking Sound+”.
Basically, this means that there are eight speaker driver
arrays arranged in an arrangement that Samsung describes as "4.2.2".
This means that two midrange drivers are emitted from the top of the chassis,
another pair of midrange plus two low-frequency units are emitted from the
bottom, and the tweeters propagate upwards on the left and right sides of the
rack. This idea can both open the sound stage and provide a certain level of
audio tracking of anything that happens on the screen.
In some respects, it was quite successful. Of course, eight
drivers and their total power of 70 watts will produce a large and even
sound-no doubt, motion tracking will follow. But the signature of the sound is
hard and thin, so it is not suitable for the magnificence of the image that
accompanies it, which is simply ridiculous.
