The Samsung QN95B is a high-end LCD TV with a premium price, offering excellent picture quality in bright rooms and very good overall performance for various content, including movies, sports, and gaming. The miniLED backlight with local dimming enhances contrast and black levels, making it suitable for darker environments too. Its low response time and high refresh rate are beneficial for gamers, and with support for HLG and HDR10+, it caters to high dynamic range content well, but it lacks Dolby Vision support. The One Connect Box is a standout feature for cable management. On the downside, while the sound quality is very good and includes Dolby Atmos, you might want an external sound system for a more immersive audio experience. The wide viewing angle is decent for family viewing, and colors out of the box are accurate, saving you from immediate calibration needs. Give Feedback

Ratings by Category

Bright Room:
5.0
PerfectRec’s bright room score is a proprietary score of a television's performance in a bright environment, taking into account the following factors: screen brightness, reflections, and color volume. A higher score indicates better TV performance in bright conditions, minimizing glare and producing a more pleasant viewing experience. Brightness is crucial in how well the image displays in direct sunlight, and low reflections reduce glare. Color volume contributes to color vibrancy and depth, which are vital in a bright environment.
Gaming:
4.7
PerfectRec’s gaming score measures a TV's performance when it comes to playing video games. It is based on several factors that can significantly impact the quality of the gaming experience, including screen response time, input lag, and refresh rate. Screen response time is a critical factor that determines how quickly the TV can transition from one color to the next, while input lag measures the delay between the gaming console output and the TV display. Refresh rate refers to the number of times per second that the TV displays a new frame, which can impact the smoothness of the gaming experience. The gaming score also takes into account two other features: local dimming in gaming mode, which can enhance contrast and picture quality, and black frame insertion, which can reduce screen brightness and create a smoother gaming experience.
News, Talk & Reality TV:
4.7
The Samsung QN95B excels at watching news, talk shows, and other TV programs because it delivers 'Best' performance in upscaling lower-resolution content, resulting in clear images even from non-HD channels. Additionally, its SDR Brightness is rated as 'Best', ensuring that the picture remains vibrant and easy to see even in well-lit rooms.
Cartoons & Animaton:
4.7
The Samsung QN95B is excellent for watching cartoons and animations because it displays colors vibrantly straight out of the box without the need for calibration and has a wide color gamut that ensures a broad spectrum of hues, making the animations more lively and true-to-life. Additionally, factors like color volume and gray uniformity contribute to the richness and consistency of the images on screen, enhancing the overall viewing experience.
Movies & TV shows:
4.5
PerfectRec’s movies & cinematic TV score takes into account the most important TV features for cinematic content. Our score considers the following factors:color gamut, color volume, out-of-the-box color accuracy, local dimming and black uniformity. We also factor in gray uniformity and viewing angles to a lesser degree.
Overall Picture:
4.5
The Samsung QN95B delivers an impressive picture quality primarily due to its high contrast ratio and effective local dimming feature which produces deep blacks, enhancing HDR content, and its strong HDR brightness ensures that highlights pop. Additionally, the TV boasts accurate colors straight out of the box, a wide color gamut, and good color volume to make the images vibrant and lifelike.
Sports:
4.1
The Samsung QN95B is great for watching sports due to its excellent response time, which minimizes motion blur, and its impressive handling of reflections, ensuring clear images even in bright rooms. The TV also includes effective motion processing, though some motion artifacts may occasionally be visible; however, it has a solid performance in gray uniformity, maintaining consistent color across the screen, and a decent viewing angle for wider seating arrangements.

"Picture quality is fantastic truly mind-bogglingly good. It also plays into the screen’s gorgeous color performance, as spectacularly rich, vibrant tones now look both more consistently natural and balanced. With its extreme brightness and vibrant Quantum Dot color system, the QN95B delivers a dazzling demonstration of just how much of a difference HDR can make to picture quality."
