Is this the best price?

**New for 2019. The QN82Q60R QLED TV is Samsung’s 82-inch sixth generation of Flat Screen 4K Ultra HD TVs from Samsung. This is Samsung’s lowest priced line of 4K HDR equipped TVs with (Quantum Dots) QLED technology. This technology has produced the best LED TV picture Samsung has ever produced.

Quantum Dot Technology: The Samsung Quantum Dot (QLED) technology produces a brighter picture (enhancing HDR). QLED produces more natural vivid colors (billions of shades of color). QLED also minimizes color washout when viewing from the side, for great colors that pop wherever you sit. High dynamic range (Quantum HDR 4X ) gives you more shadow detail, brighter whites, and more natural and realistic colors. A 4K Ultra HD TV provides 3840 x 2160 resolution, which is four times the resolution of Full HD. This allows you to sit closer to a larger TV and get the immersive movie theater experience. Most movie theaters now use a 4K projector, so in effect you will have movie theater resolution in the home.

Advanced 4K Picture Quality: The Samsung QN82Q60R 4K 82-inch LED backlit TV includes Samsung’s advanced 100% Color Volume & Contrast which will give you deeper blacks and colors using quantum dot technology. The 240 Motion Rate anti-blur technology combines a native 120Hz Panel along with backlight control to provide blur free, clear motion, great for sports and fast moving action. This model is HDR-capable with QLED quantum dots, Supreme UHD Dimming, and 1000 nits peak brightness. The 2019 QLED models have the new Quantum Processor 4K chip. The 4K Quantum HDR technology is HDR10, HDR10+, and HLG compatible.

Best of 2019 Smart-Review Commentary: For 2019, The 82-inch QN82Q60R 4K TV is one of Samsung’s best Flat LED 4K TVs and comes fully loaded. These are the sixth generation of 4K TVs from Samsung with Quantum Dots. Quantum Dots will increase brightness and give much richer colors than normal TVs, as well as deeper blacks. The new QLED technology will help prevent color washout you see in many TVs when viewing from an angle. In addition, this TV is equipped with Quantum HDR 4X to give you high dynamic range for more natural colors, brighter whites, deeper blacks. This TV supports the latest HDR10, HDR10+, and HLG HDR standards. 4K Ultra HD resolution will give you 8 megapixels of screen, versus only 2 megapixels in regular HD. This is the future of TVs as 4K is the new standard.

4K Ultra HD is the same resolution as the movie theater, and will give you a more immersive experience, as the pixels are 4 times smaller, and you can sit much closer to the TV. Native 4K content has been emerging more in recent years. Native 4K Blu-ray players with HDR have been introduced. Netflix, Amazon, and Xfinity already have 4K content and more is on the way. This TV comes with the latest 4K standards: including HDMI 2.0 , and HEVC (h.265) decoder built-in. These will allow high speed 4K (60fps) and 4K Streaming. Dual-band 802.11ac Wifi provides the connection speed to stream 4K content.

Built-in Bluetooth® wireless audio allows streaming to your soundbar, speakers or headphones. Screen mirroring allows you to view content to and from your TV to your Smartphone or Tablet. The Q60R 4K Series comes with a Smart Remote Control with voice control and a voice assistant. Apple AirPlay® TV has been added for 2019. We previewed the QLED Quantum Dot TVs with HDR at CES 2019, and they have some of the best pictures we have seen on an LED TV. The QN82Q60R 4K TV is a not only a SmartReview Top Pick, but has won our BEST of 2019 Award.
