Samsung QE49Q80T review

Test scoreShow Context

Key features
  • 49 inches
  • LCD
  • 4K Ultra-HD

This 49-inch 4K Samsung sits in the middle of its QLED range, and there was a time that it was all but guaranteed to be a Best Buy. Each year we see more and more of these high-end sets and fewer LCD models, and as the range broadens quality has slipped. Several 2019 QLEDs missed the Best Buy mark, so how does the 49-inch QE49Q80T (sometimes called the QE49Q80TATXXU) fare? Does it capture the quality of old, or have standards continued to slip?
