The Samsung QN90A QLED is an excellent TV. It’s Samsung’s flagship 4k TV in their new Neo QLED lineup, which is an upgrade from their traditional QLED lineup because it uses Mini LED as its backlighting. This allows the TV to get extremely bright, enough to combat glare or bring out highlights in HDR content, and it provides more control over its full-array local dimming feature. The local dimming does a great job at improving the picture quality, but you may notice there’s some blooming around bright objects. It’s packed with gaming features like FreeSync variable refresh rate support (VRR) and G-SYNC compatibility. It also has HDMI 2.1 support, but some people may be disappointed that it’s limited to one input. Despite having a VA panel, it has fairly wide viewing angles thanks to Samsung’s ‘Ultra Viewing Angle’ technology, so it should be a good choice for fairly wide seating arrangements.
The Samsung QN90A is an excellent TV for any use. Its VA panel provides an excellent native contrast ratio and great local dimming to display deep blacks. It gets bright enough to combat glare and has fantastic reflection handling if you want to use it in a well-lit room. Also, gamers should enjoy its VRR support, low input lag, and quick response time for a responsive gaming experience.
