If your budget allows for a midrange price, the LG NANO90 may suit you if you're okay with sacrificing some picture quality for a lower price point. On the other hand, the Samsung QN85B, which is slightly more expensive, delivers better overall picture quality and brighter images, which could be beneficial in bright rooms. However, note that both are good options for gaming, but the Samsung QN85B does have a slight edge in gaming performance as well. Keep in mind that neither TV excels in very dark room settings, where other types of displays might perform better. Give Feedback

"Here we have HDR pictures that look bright, but also manage to typically hit decently deep black levels.WebOS continues, though, to be one of the easiest to use. Connections are strong for a mid-range TV. Native 4K pictures look crisp and detailed."

What Hi-Fi?

John Archer | February 2023
"Particularly key to this is the fact that black levels are unusually good, on a level we haven’t seen from any IPS TV before. Build quality is impressive too, with a gleaming silver metallic frame and stand, and enough heft to suggest plenty of quality innards. High dynamic range content jumps off the screen with enough luminosity and intensity to really sell what makes HDR special."
