    Sentiment Score 93%
    Reviewers from techradar have found the following***:
    The Samsung Q950 represents a significant step forward, not only in terms of 8K TVs but also when it comes to delivering HDR. The HDR performance is simply the best we have ever seen, justifying the purchase of this 8K TV even in absence of any native content. The sound quality of the Q950 is particularly impressive, no doubt thanks to the size of the screen and the direct LED backlight allowing for a deeper panel. The Q950 doesn't support Dolby Atmos processing, but it's debatable how much of an object-based and immersive experience a TV really can deliver.
