Samsung QN900B Neo QLED 8K 2022: This Might Be The Best 8K TV Yet

We have the Samsung QN900B Neo QLED 8K 2022 TV with us today, and if you have the money to buy this, well, it’s probably one of the best TVs in its class that you can get right now.

Alright, so let’s talk design first. We have the 75” model and it’s actually a little too big for our TV stand. If you’re planning on wall-mounting it though, it’d be perfect. If you want to use the included stand, Samsung’s One Connect Box can actually be mounted on the back of the stand, which is a sleek, space-saving option. As for I/O ports on the box, you get four HDMI 2.1 ports which all support 4K 120Hz, so if you’re lucky enough to have a PS5, Xbox Series X and two other devices that need an HDMI 2.1 port, you’ll have plenty. There are also USB 2.0 ports, Ethernet, optical digital out, coax and more.

As for the display itself, it’s gorgeous. The bezels are incredibly thin and unobtrusive, and the TV itself is very slim. There are speaker grills around the top and sides of the TV, allowing for a 6.2.4 channel setup which supports Dolby Atmos with up-firing speakers. The speakers are honestly quite good, but the Q Symphony feature that Samsung offers with compatible soundbars brings it to a whole new level. Check out our review of the soundbar in tandem with the TV here. Suffice to say, you won’t have to buy a speaker setup if you don’t want to, but it would definitely elevate the experience.

The TV also comes with Samsung’s solar-rechargeable remote, which is excellent and saves you from having to purchase batteries. There’s also a USB-C port on the bottom that you can use to charge the remote if there’s not enough light. You get dedicated Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney Plus and Browser app buttons, which is nice and directly brings you to your streaming platform of choice.

As for the UI, it’s alright. I’m not a big fan of the fact that all the onboard apps are organised in one single row, since I need to scroll through to find what I want to use, but you can rearrange the order so your most frequently used apps are in front. If you only have a few apps that you use frequently, this isn’t a problem at all. There’s also a settings shortcut button on the remote that pulls up a small bar at the bottom to adjust settings quickly on the fly, and that’s fine, but for more granular adjustments, you’ll have to open the advanced settings.

But let’s talk about video. This is an 8K TV and you might think, there’s so little 8K content out anyway, what’s the point of splurging on such a high-end TV? Well, true, but there’s always upscaling, and this TV does an excellent job at upscaling 4K content. Some content like really old animation, think standard definition 4:3 aspect ratio, isn’t quite as nice, but I think the QN900B does its best considering the source. When you get to older 1080p movies, it’s very obvious it’s 1080p and it doesn’t really look that good on the TV, but more recent movies in 4K look absolutely fantastic thanks to the upscaling, as do newer anime like Demon Slayer.

The TV is super sharp, and something we noticed is that because it’s so sharp, it’s quite obvious when the camera isn’t in focus in shows. There’s a scene in episode 1 of The Witcher on Netflix where Geralt and Stregobor are speaking in his illusion tower, and the camera cuts between the two of them often. Geralt is always in focus and pin-sharp, you can see the lines on his face, the stubble. But sometimes, Stregobor is slightly out of focus and the overall image is a bit soft and it’s honestly, quite distracting if you’re paying very close attention. But honestly, we’re just nitpicking at this point, and it’s nothing bad about the TV. The TV will just make flaws in the cinematography easier to pick out. Sometimes, the sharpness does feel a bit too artificial though, and I do know people who stick to old TVs because it gives a more realistic look. To each his own here.

There are a few video modes to choose from, Standard, Natural, Dynamic, Movie and Filmmaker, but my personal favourite was Dynamic. It brightened the image, increased the vibrancy and colour, sharpens and it’s just the nicest visually. It also helped to remove the stuttering frames from fast scenes a little.

We set the remove judder to around 3 and that was the ideal setting for us to remove judder from animations and the likes while not taking it overboard. There was a scene in Episode 1 of The Witcher though, the battle between Nilfgard and Cintra, where the cavalry was rushing in and there was an odd juddering effect on the right-hand side of the screen. We tinkered around and found that it was present when the remove judder was on, and when we turned off the remove judder, it disappeared. It’s certainly a bit of an odd incident, and the Samsung folks couldn’t give us an answer as to why that happened either, but there’s not much to be done about it.

Gaming on the QN900B is fantastic though. We have an Xbox Series X hooked up and playing games that support 4K 120Hz is amazing. It’s buttery smooth and incredibly sharp. We tested out a variety of games, Forza Horizon 5, Halo Infinite, Ori and the Will of the Wisps and more and the TV performed superbly across all of them. Panning the camera in Halo Infinite is smooth and you can immediately tell that it’s 120Hz. There’s also a Game Mode for the TV, which allows you to see the current framerate and such, so that’s nice.

The Samsung QN900B is an excellent TV if you’re gaming at 4K 120Hz and watching plenty of 4K content. If you’re not, though, then an 8K TV might be a bit overkill, especially with the hefty price tag.
