The Samsung S90C is one of the best OLED TVs we've tested in our labs. In our Samsung S90C OLED TV review, we said that "it's hard to find a better TV than this."

So why the high praise? This set earned 4.5/5 stars by offering gorgeous picture quality, excellent gaming features and a built-in ATSC 3.0 tuner for over-the-air 4K broadcasts.

The Samsung S90C also turned in impressive results in our tests. We saw a peak brightness of 1073 nits, a Delta-E score of 1.3184 (lower is better) and 98.6903% coverage of the Rec. 709 color gamut. Everything from blockbusters to colorful animated films wowed us. 

Gamers will really like the S90C because it comes with four HDMI 2.1 ports (great for plugging in your PS5 or Xbox Series X) and a 144Hz refresh rate. We also measured a super low lag time of 9.2ms, which puts the S90C on par with the best gaming TVs out there.

The audio system is pretty good, too. You get a 40-watt, 2.1 channel system supports Dolby Atmos and Object Tracking Sound Lite, making for full-bodied sound. Plus, dialogue and sound effects were distinct in our tests, and we heard zero distortion. 

At this price this could be your next — or first — OLED TV for sure. And if you're not quite sold check out our Cyber Monday TV deals live blog for more discounts.
