The Samsung QN90B offers a slightly better overall picture quality, making it a good choice if you prioritize watching movies and sports, as well as gaming in both dark and bright rooms. On the other hand, the Samsung QN90C has marginally lower picture quality, and although still good, it might not match the same performance level as the QN90B in these aspects. However, it has newer accessibility features like voice commands which could be beneficial for ease of use. Both models are priced similarly and offer many of the same features, such as support for various HDR formats, great speakers, and low input lag for gaming. So, your decision may hinge on whether you prioritize the latest accessibility features or the best overall picture quality for a premium viewing experience. Give Feedback

USA Today

Michael Desjardin | October 2022
"The QN90B delivers one of the brightest pictures we’ve ever seen, showcasing HDR content better than just about every LCD/LED TV on the market. If all you’re planning on doing is watching cable TV, broadcast channels, and a fair share of streaming shows or movies, the QN90B is sure to impress. All four of the QN90B’s HDMI 2.1 ports support 4K gaming at 120fps a centerpiece feature of the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5."
