I like my 2016 Samsung SUHD UN 55KS 8000 /800D quite a bit as LCD goes and I don't own an OLED but the KS 8000 should be fine for me in my inner sanctum here until Microdot LED or QD-LED or whatever they decide to call them but I would want the price to settle out and the usual issues of a new panel to shake out .
I wonder how the 2016 KS 8000 picture and brightness observations compares to the 2017 Samsung Q7F , Q8F and Q9F at flatpanels HD or with other posters .
Even with the added the color volume looking at numbers I can't see a compelling reason to move to the 2017 QLED product here from my UN 55KS 8000/800D .
55" is the perfect size on the wall in the inner sanctum here with this Sony ES 7.1 AVR ,PC ,4 ELAC B6 speakers ,& my center and sub.on the short wall.
I saw a spendy Samsung QLED TV or a few at Best Buy and they were colorful on the Samsung Demo like usual for QDOT Samsung and *maybe a little more colorful then a 2016 SUHD but I don't recall it as brighter than the SUHD KS 8000 (800D) here or KS 8000 there & I don't recall which QLED Samsung TV 's .
The MU 8000/9000 was not the TV a KS 8000 is or the 2017 QLED's .
I'm presuming nude of QDOTS the 2017 Samsung MU 7000, 8000, 9000 are cheaper photoluminescent LED phosphor WCG LCD panels like maybe a 4K HDR WCG Vizio or TCL.
This 2016 UN 55 KS8000/800D TV is 2017 May NIB here and TBH it didn't leave a ton on the table for the arguably better 2017 Sony X930E at Magnolia Best buy on my USB media up to 4K HDR or the store Demos when I was shopping the TV's while this Samung FA01 panel binned UN 55KS 800D was shipping from Costco
