Quantum Dot TV among Oprah's "Favorite Things" for 2018

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!
