SPECIAL MENTION: Samsung’s new Neo QLED (that is, quantum-dot LED) TV has MiniLED backlight technology offering quality that rivals more expensive OLED designs, which use pixels that generate their own light. In addition to Samsung’s signature brightness—meaning better viewing in well-lit rooms—the QN90A features improved image quality, with reduced blooming (uneven backlighting common with LEDs) and deeper blacks. It also comes with a solar-powered remote that can charge via indoor lighting, another first. —Alison Van Houten
