Samsung's first QD-OLED TV earned five stars from us. It combines a spectacularly vibrant and dynamic picture and peerless viewing and angles with excellent gaming support to make a televisual feast for the eyes and ears. Factor in the additional £200 cashback and now it's now better than half price.
The S95B is Samsung's first QD-OLED TV, and what a stunner it is. Its panel combines the self-emissive pixels of OLED with the Quantum Dot colour system previously associated with QLED to deliver more brightness and, especially, colour volume than regular OLED panels can manage.
It's powered by a specially adapted version of Samsung’s Neural Quantum Processor 4K, complete with elements devoted to boosting brightness and colour, enhancing perceived resolution and improving upscaling of sub-4K content.
But the screen isn't the only weapon in its arsenal. It's also got an impressive array of connections, including four HDMI 2.1 ports that are able to cope with the 4K/120Hz, VRR and ALLM features of the PS5, Xbox Series X and certain top-end Nvidia and AMD graphics cards. Add three USB ports and all the usual Bluetooth and wi-fi features you’d expect of a high-end TV these days – including support for SmartThings and Apple AirPlay 2 – and you've got quite the proposition.
Its contrast is off the chart. Blacks are typically inky as you would expect from a standard OLED screen, but it goes much brighter than that technology usually allows. It outdoes even Sony's A95K (another QD-OLED TV) in this regard. All of which makes it worth £1549 of anyone's money.
