SAM­SUNG

HWM (Singapore) - - Readers' Choice -

Hav­ing dom­i­nated the mar­ket for the past 11 years, we aren’t at all sur­prised that our read­ers have once again voted Sam­sung their fa­vorite TV maker. Last year, the Korean man­u­fac­turer’s strong 4K TV lineup was split into two camps: SUHD and UHD. The for­mer com­prises of the quan­tum dot-en­hanced KS9800, KS9000, KS7500, and KS7000, while the lat­ter is made up of the more tra­di­tional KU6500, KU6400, KU6300, and KU6000. That said, know that mov­ing for­ward, Sam­sung’s quan­tum dot 4K LED-LCD TVs will be called “QLED” TVs. En­hanced with a new metal-coated quan­tum dot ma­te­rial and a re-en­gi­neered struc­ture, th­ese QLED TVs claim a bright­ness of up to 1,500 - 2,000 nits and DCI-P3 cov­er­age of up to 99%. More im­por­tantly, Sam­sung prom­ises 100% color vol­ume re­gard­less of bright­ness, some­thing that OLED is still weak in at the mo­ment. But other brands like LG, Pana­sonic, and Sony aren’t rest­ing on their lau­rels. With Pana­sonic and Sony now join­ing LG in mak­ing OLED TVs, Sam­sung has a big fight on its hands this year when it comes to the pic­ture qual­ity stakes.
