Value

PRICE $2,800


AT A GLANCE

Plus

Brightness to spare
Good off-center viewing

THE VERDICT

Samsung’s new QN65Q80R may not be the company’s flagship TV, but it offers an ample helping of that model’s features, design, and performance.


It wasn’t long ago that a buying a premium UHDTV demanded your first-born in exchange, or at least a sizeable portion of his or her college tuition. At $2,800 (and widely available for less), Samsung’s new QN65Q80R “QLED” TV isn’t exactly the lowest-priced entry in the growing category of affordable UHDTVs, but it’s certainly a welcome one.
