Samsung QE55QN85A bezel edge

Samsung QE55QN85A

The QE55QN85A is one of the cheapest ‘Neo QLED’ (mini-LED by any other name) TVs Samsung’s currently selling. When put to the test, the set performed incredibly well, offering great picture quality and far fewer compromises than you’d expect considering the difference in price compared to its more premium siblings.

Score: 5/5



The LG C1 isn’t terribly different to the G1 we reviewed previously, but that didn’t stop it earning a place as one of the best all-round TVs of 2021. Stellar HDR performance, coupled with pixel perfect image quality and a wealth of great gaming features including AMD FreeSync and Nvidia GSync support – you can find all this and more on the incredible C1 set.

Score: 5/5
