Samsung QLED TV Is the First TV Offering "100 Percent Color Volume"

What the heck is color volume? Oh, just the 3D representation of the maximum color-reproduction capabilities of a given display throughout the entire range of brightness levels. If that sounds interesting to you, Samsung has the perfect solution in the form of their QLED TVآ—but be prepared to shell out $2500 for it. For that much, I would argue that you should just get an OLED TV, especially if you value contrast ratio. Samsung is supposedly working on newer QLED technology that will be emissive, meaning that pixels can be turned completely off, making it a true challenger to OLED. But who knows when that is coming.

آ…Samsung’s new QLED screenآ…should result in "more realistic, accurate and vibrant HDR images" on screen, with films and TV shows diplayed "as the director or content producer intended, in both bright and dark scenes". The Quantum-dot material will hopefully also allow for consistent color quality from any viewing angle, in both brightly lit and dark rooms alike. You can pre-order select Q-series models from the US Samsung page, starting at an eye-watering $2,500. We're still waiting on pricing and release information for Australia and the UK.
