What if I told you I knew for a fact that people are lusting after Samsung TVs more than any other brand of TVs? Would you believe me? Well it’s true according to IBM’s Watson (the famed super computer who won Jeopardy). Watson’s got a new app on iOS called Watson Trend that lets you see what tech consumers are most interested in this holiday season and the results are really fascinating.
Just a few days ago Watson Trend showed that people were most interested in the Apple Watch; it was the hottest tech gift of the season. Until… Samsung TVs took over the top ranked spot.
Watson Trend assigns a number from 0 to 100 that “indicates the strength of a trend by taking tens of millions of online conversations into account.” And Samsung TVs currently have a score of 100! The Apple Watch, the next closest tech item at the moment, only has a score of 77. So people are REALLY excited about Samsung TVs right now.
Watson Trend says people are “very pleased” with their Samsung TV purchases often calling them the best TVs they’ve ever owned. Additionally buyers are impressed with picture and sound quality and the affordability of Samsung’s 4K UHD (Ultra-High Definition) models.

When I bought this one, Samsung was giving a sound bar and subwoofer away with the purchase. After hearing the sound from the speakers on the TV, I sold the sound bar on craigslist.”
“The Samsung 50″ Class LED Smart HDTV is an exceptional television. My husband and I were looking for a Smart TV for our bedroom and the Samsung 50″ is a great size. The picture quality is superb!”
“The Samsung 55″ 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV is the best TV I have owned. It plays .AVI, .MKV, .MP4, and .MOV files natively and at HD or SD resolutions. Browsing for videos is very fast and thumbnails are loaded for each file. The TV ...
