Product Snapshot


The 2021 Samsung QN9DA is a flagship QLED TV that’s got a stunning 4K UHD display powered by its Neo Quantum Processor 4K and uses Quantum Matrix Technology to display bright & dark scenes better thanks to tiny hyper-focused light cells. It easily upscales content to 4K quality for movie fans to enjoy vivid visuals, and with support for FreeSync, VRR, and Quantum 32X HDR technology, gamers will love both the clarity and smoothness of gameplay. In addition, the TV’s SpaceFit Sound feature ensures the sound is adjusted according to your room size in terms of audio. Furthermore, through Q-Symphony, the TV can properly harmonize sound from the TV’s speakers and other external sources. Take some time to read through our Samsung QN9DA review to see if it’ll suit you or whether you’ll need to consider another from this other list of top rated TVs.
