The Samsung S90C is a high-end 4k TV in Samsung’s 2023 lineup, sitting below the Samsung S95C OLED. It has a QD-OLED panel, promising some of the brightest and most vibrant colors available on a TV. It has Samsung’s LaserSlim Design, Neural Quantum Processor 4k AI upscaling with Quantum HDR OLED technology, and Motion Xcelerator Turbo Pro for enhanced motion processing. This TV officially supports 4k @ 144Hz, or 4k @ 120Hz on the 83-inch model, so it’s a gaming powerhouse, especially with its full HDMI 2.1 Bandwidth support on all four HDMI ports. Like other Samsung TVs, it uses Samsung’s proprietary Tizen OS smart interface, which offers a large selection of apps and games. It’s available in four sizes: 55-inch, 65-inch, 77-inch, and a WOLED-equipped 83-inch size.
The Samsung S90C is a fantastic TV for every usage. It has good SDR peak brightness, so it’s great for watching TV shows or sports in a bright room, especially with its superb reflection handling. It truly shines for HDR movies and games, especially in a dark room where its OLED panel, with its deep inky blacks, truly performs at its best. The very low input lag makes it fantastic for gamers, as your inputs are translated almost instantaneously to the screen. Its superb response time makes it a great choice for fans of fast-moving content, whether sports or games, as action stays clear and crisp throughout. Sadly it doesn’t support any DTS audio formats, making it tricky for a home entertainment center, and it only has adequate low-quality content smoothing, which isn’t optimal for streaming services with low bitrates.
