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.

The improvement focuses on the size and perfect roundness of the quantum dot shape to achieve greater brightness, better wide angle viewing and larger color depth range.

To achieve this, Samsung uses new metal quantum dot material to improve color range to the point that their new QLED TVs will be able to display 100 percent of the DCI-P3 color space.

The new QLED models are also brighter with a peak luminance of 1,500 to 2,000 nits; by comparison, last year’s SUHD models peaked at 1,000 nits. This increased peak luminance output will have no impact on accurate color reproduction, according to Samsung.

Samsung has made some unique aesthetic changes with the QLED series and are as follows:

The improvements to design and usability in the QLED TV series include a single, transparent ‘Invisible Connection’ cable, through which all of the peripheral devices can be gathered and connected to the TV. This is in addition to the ‘No-gap wall-mount’, which makes it quick and easy to affix the TV flush against the wall. Or, for those who prefer not to mount the TV, Samsung is offering two new stands designed to elevate and showcase the QLED TVs as beautiful home accessories all by themselves. Consumers can choose either the ‘Studio Stand’, which resembles an easel with a painting, or the sleek ‘Gravity Stand’, which when attached to the TV, resembles a contemporary sculpture. – Source: Samsung

  • Milton, I bought the Samsung KS8000 in a 55″ and am thrilled with the picture and functions. In viewing Netflix and Amazon movies, occasionally on Amazon I get a very bothersome juddering or just constant jumping around in the sound and picture. Watching the signal on my Yamaha receiver, it constantly is going in and out. However, if I switch over to a Netflix movie at the same time, it is fine.
    Why a problem with Amazon movies and not Netflix movies?

    • Hi Rand,
      Since your issue only happens occasionally, it may be bandwidth related and is only affecting your Amazon service and not Netflix, which is definitely possible. When this problem occurs, are there other devices sharing your internet connection at the same time? This can impact your connection speed.

      Also, to be sure if the Amazon streaming process doesn’t have a problem passing through your A/V receiver, try bypassing your receiver to see if the problem persists.

      Hope this helps.
