A chance to talk to FlatpanelsHD's reviewers.

#12169 wow, that looks terrible, its really hard to understand why anyone would buy one of these over the LG C7 65 inch, you'd have to be a total Samsung fanboy as this TV seems to have no redeeming factors at all.

#12170 I disagree. Sure, the picture is based on edge LED with whatever downsides this has, but the "rest" is pretty awesome. Good build quality, best in class remote, Tizen runs well and has a nice feature list, awesome One Connect box. You get most of those features in the Q7 also, so one could argue that Q9 is a hard sell, though.

#12182 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

#14187 Samsung Q9F have decoding problems with .mkv and .mp4 in 4k as far As I have tested.
Decoding sound tracks and subtitle tracks are just a mess.

Like decoding in 4k does not work on the Q9F in 90% of the files I have.

Note that all the older Samsung works fine.

I do not know what samsung has done with the Q9F decoding, but it is brokens as FFFFFF.
