Influential talk show host and media personality Oprah recently published her list of “Favorite Things” for 2018. The only TV on her list this year is a Quantum Dot TV, the Samsung Q7F.

In case you’ve been living under a rock for the last 20 years, the “Favorite Things” list is much more than a simple holiday shopping guide. Oprah first started sharing the list on her talk show in the mid-1990’s and the segment quickly became famous for fun, frenzied audience reactions to her gifts (it was even immortalized on SNL). Like snowflake-themed Starbucks cups, Oprah’s list has become a symbol of the holiday season here in the US.

I then go through every item, picking my favorites and narrowing the selection to my own. It’s a process. Because it’s important for me to remain as true to my original inspiration as possible. My guideline: Do I really like it enough to want to receive it myself?
— Oprah

Today, the list stretches to over 100 items and requires a dedicated team of curators to pull together. Still, in her note announcing this year’s list, Oprah notes that she personally reviews every item with one simple criteria in mind: “do I like it enough to want to receive it myself?”

This marks a big milestone in Quantum Dot technology’s journey to mainstream adoption and consumer awareness. We’re proud to see our technology on Oprah’s list!
