See What’s New for 2018
Samsung recently had its official unveiling of its new 2018 TV product lineup. This year’s models will be spread across 9 series and feature the flagship QLED TV models and an expanded lineup of UHD, Premium UHD and Ultra-Large Screen TVs.
As expected 2017 was a good year for the continued growth and popularity of 4K Ultra HD TVs. And with a new year upon us, it time for me to reflect on my favorite models from last year.
65″ QN65Q7F & QN657C 120Hz Smart LED TVs
Samsung’s Q7 series features the entry level models of their current premium lineup of which Samsung refers to as QLED quantum dot 4K Ultra HD TV displays. Samsung claims this latest technology is an improve over last year’s quantum dot tech used in their former SUHD TVs.
65″ MU8000 120Hz Smart LED TV
Samsung’s UN65MU8000 is part of the companies mid-tier line of televisions for 2017. The MU8000 is classified as a premium model, and replaces last year’s premium SUHD KS8000 model. However, the MU8000 is not in the SUHD class which was last year’s top-tier lineup, and has been replaced with the new QLED displays.

Samsung revealed its latest quantum dot TV technology at CES 2017 in their upcoming QLED 4K series lineup which will include the Q9, Q8 and Q7 TVs. QLED, as Samsung calls it, is not to be confused with OLED TVs which use emissive/self illuminating LEDs to display pictures images. QLED is actually an improvement of quantum dot technology, according to Samsung.

1080p TVs – Still a Good Choice for High Definition Viewing
Are you in the market for a new TV, but still not concerned or interested in the latest rave of 4K Ultra HD TVs that are taking over the television landscape? If so, you should know there are still plenty of 1080p HDTVs currently available, although in much smaller numbers and available models since manufacturers are now focusing most of their production efforts on 4K models. With that said, 1080p models still deliver excellent picture quality and usable features such as a decent smart TV interface/platform, all at a cheaper price.

The price of 4K Ultra HDTVs have been steadily dropping since their introduction a few years ago. Even models with the latest HDR (High Dynamic Range) technology can be had at an affordable price, including the model under review here – Samsung’s 55″ KU7000 and is currently available for only $899.99.
