In a familiarly comprehensive review by Rtings.com, Samsung's new QD-OLED TV goes toe to toe with LG's vastly popular and noticeably improved G2, resulting in a very close competition for the throne of the best high-end television set in 2022 thus far.

Samsung's brand-new S95B QD-OLED TV is not just the very first OLED television to support a rather uncommon refresh rate of 144 Hz at full 4K resolution when hooked up to a compatible gaming PC. The high-end television set also compares well to LG's improved C2 and G2 OLED TVs, both of which sport an increased HDR peak brightness compared to their immediate predecessors.

According to a thorough data-based review by Rtings, the Samsung S95B QD-OLED TV in fact manages to beat the aforementioned competing LG OLED TVs by the slimmest margin possible. With a final score of 9.1 out of 10 possible points, the Samsung S95B appears to be one of the finest choices for home theater enthusiasts in 2022. As every television set that is equipped with an OLED panel, the TV has a practically infinite contrast ratio and perfect black levels, but the colors brightness is where Samsung's new QD-OLED technology separates itself from traditional OLED panels.

The reputable TV experts at Rtings found that the Samsung S95B can produce extremely bright and therefore vibrant colors. For example, this television set is able to display green at up to 745 nits and yellow at 862 nits, both of which are more than twice as bright as the competing LG G2. Consequently, its professionally measured color gamut and color volume turned out to be exceptionally good. At almost 1,000 nits, the typical HDR peak brightness of this 2022 QD-OLED TV is also excellent, although LG's counterpart barely bested the Samsung S95B in this particular category.

Console and PC gamers will be glad to hear that the Samsung S95B also features an insanely low input lag of just 9.9 milliseconds at 4K60 and 5.4 ms at 4K and 120 Hz, both of which should suffice even for competitive multiplayer gaming. The only real downside of this QD-OLED TV seem to be the raised black levels in bright rooms.
