The Samsung Q8C offers smooth and lag-free gaming experience because of its low input lag and well-managed motion blur. The input lag of the Q8C is 23.6 ms, which means that it takes less than 1/40th of a second for a TV to react to the input from an external source like a click of a button. In terms of input lag, the Samsung Q8C is on par with its closest competitors, including the LG seven series OLED TVs. The panel has a full pixel response time of 10.7 ms, ensuring that it takes less than 1/100th of a second for its pixels to change their color; thus, even fast-moving objects won’t leave trails on the screen. As a result, the TV has almost negligible motion blur. See More
The TV is fully compatible with all the current generation gaming consoles, including the Xbox One X, PS4 Pro, and Wii U. The Q8C also supports HDR gaming, which will allow you to experience the full range of HDR effects in the latest console games, like Hitman, NBA 2K17, Final Fantasy XV, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and World of Tanks.

Picture-wise, the Samsung Q8C has everything necessary to provide excellent quality. The TV can reproduce eye-catching bright scenes; especially in HDR mode, where it can sustain up to 700 nits of brightness making its colors look genuinely crisp and vivid. In SDR mode, however, the sustained luminosity drops to 400 nits, which is still higher than what the competitors in the price range of the Q8C offer. As for dark scenes, the Samsung Q8C has it all sorted as its panel has a relatively high native contrast ratio of 4761:1, combined with well-uniformed blacks; which allows for deep scenes with noticeable brightness shifts among multiple regions of the screen.

Samsung Q8C comes with the One Connect box which moves all the hard-to-access rear inputs away from the TV. This way, you’ll always have full access to all inputs and outputs of the TV even if it’s mounted on a wall. Additionally, the One Connect box can be used as a USB charging hub. See More
The Samsung Q8C is an excellent option for sports fans as the TV can display fast and dynamic content very clearly. The clear representation of dynamic content is achieved by the TV’s rapid pixel response time of 10.7 ms which almost eliminates the motion-blur effect. As the pixels can change their colors in nearly 1/100th of a second, fast-moving objects don't leave trails. Additionally, the Samsung Q8C is especially good for watching outdoor sports, like football, rugby or golf, because the TV has high color uniformity which makes sports fields look more even and consistent.

The main feature of the Samsung Q8C is its curved panel which can give you an immersive feeling of being surrounded by the TV. However, if you are not a fan of curved TVs, there is a flat, equally priced version of the Samsung Q8C simply called the Samsung Q8. See More
