The Verdict

Select the right Samsung television by factoring in the features you want and the price you are willing to pay. If you are shopping for a 4K UHD television with HDR capabilities, don't overlook our top-ranked NU7100 Series 65-Inch Class model UN65NU7100FXZA priced at $850.

For an introductory Quantum Dot model, it's hard to beat the Q6F 55-Inch 4K UHD QLED TV with HDR (QN55Q6FNAFXZA), which retails for approximately $1,100, or choose another model in the Q6F series. If you are seeking a cutting edge QLED television, consider the Q8F 55-Inch 4K UHD QLED with HDR or other models in the Q8F or Q9F series.

If affordability is your top priority, you may be tempted to purchase a basic 32-inch LED television with 720p or 1080p resolution. You can find these Samsung televisions for under $200 but they are not likely to have 4K UHD, and may quickly become outdated. Invest in your ability to enjoy clear and bright visuals in 2018 and years to come with one of the three $300 to $400 models in our ranking.
