Product Snapshot

Overview

The Samsung QN900B Neo QLED TV is an 8K LED TV introduced in early 2022 in sizes up to 85 inches. It uses a mini LED backlight and microscopic quantum dots, with up to 900 local dimming zones.

Its 144 Hz refresh rate and low-lag game mode make it an attractive choice for gamers. Like many of the best TVs out now, it uses a very thin design with an almost bezel-less display that creates a floating picture effect.

Inputs include an Ethernet port, a cable jack, digital optical audio out, 3 USB ports, and 4 HDMI 2.1 ports. While 8K content availability is limited, the QN900B’s processor uses sophisticated upscaling algorithms to display 4K and full HD inputs with added sharpness and resolution.

Positioned as a flagship TV, it highlights Samsung’s commitment to innovation and quality

Consensus

our Verdict

The Samsung QN900B Neo QLED TV is very bright, offering up to about 1,197 cd/m² real scene peak brightness. It provides a generous variety of inputs, including HDMI ports, making it suitable for connecting multiple devices.

The 1532:1 native contrast isn’t as high as some other Samsung TVs, but its QLED technology delivers impressive black levels and minimizes reflections for an immersive viewing experience.

Image quality remains sharp across a wide viewing angle. The high HDR peak brightness and wide color gamut make HDR content a joy. The tested 144 Hz refresh rate ensures smooth PC gameplay, and there’s no discernable blurring of fast-moving scenes.

The QN900B’s local dimming feature helps control blooming, enhancing picture quality and minimizing distractions. Still, some blooming is noticeable in mostly dark scenes, and this TV doesn’t preserve black detail as well as some competitors.

Reason to Buy

  • Great picture quality
    • Its 8K resolution and 900 local dimming zones make for a vibrant picture for cinematic home theater, as does the wide color gamut with over 93% DCI P3 color space representation, which is above average for its class.

  • Excellent brightness
    • Brightness was tested over 1100 cd/m2, in the top 20% of its category.

  • Good motion handling
    • Its 144 Hz refresh rate is higher than most and makes it suitable for PC and console gaming, helping fast action scenes appear smooth and without flip-book effect

Reason to Avoid

  • Mediocre-performing built-in speakers
    • The QN900B’s built-in speakers aren’t as powerful as some competitors’

  • Inconveniently placed input ports
    • Accessing the HDMI and USB ports can be challenging if the TV is mounted flush to a wall

  • Limited 8K content
    • While its 8K resolution is a selling point, most users will see little benefit when displaying 4K or HD content

Like Samsung’s QN900B Neo QLED TV, the QN90B is an impressive performer with low input lag and HDMI 2.1 support. The main difference is that while the QN90B tops out at 4K resolution, the QN900B is a high-end 8K TV. Both models employ QLED technology with quantum dots. The QN900B also boasts a refresh rate of up to 144 Hz, making it great for gaming. On the other hand, the QN90B costs significantly less and still offers a fantastic HDR experience, low input lag and fast pixel response time, making it suitable for gaming and sports in a well-lit room.

LG’s C2 OLED TV is a strong alternative, bringing ultra-high contrast and deeper blacks. The C2 features self-emissive OLED pixels, offering perfect black levels and near-infinite contrast, producing exceptional picture quality for movie enthusiasts. However, the Samsung QN900B Neo gets significantly brighter and may work better in bright rooms.

Another worthy rival is Sony’s A90J OLED TV, which boasts self-emissive OLED technology and provides excellent picture clarity and color accuracy. While the QN900B offers…

Another worthy rival is Sony’s A90J OLED TV, which boasts self-emissive OLED technology and provides excellent picture clarity and color accuracy. While the QN900B offers 8K resolution, the availability of native 8K content is still limited. For more choices, check out our Hisense U80G review, or our list of the best TCL TVs available now.
