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.
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!
