Samsung QE65Q9FN review

 

Samsung's impressive QLED TV is a significant step forward for the technology.

Astonishingly punchy, bright and vibrant images ; Deep, detailed blacks ; Loads of apps and features ; Genius evolution of OneConnect ; Strong handling of motion

Sony does even better motion ; OLED offers even deeper blacks and better viewing angles

The Q9FN is a significant step forward for QLED – one that should make OLED at least a bit nervous

Samsung QE65Q9FN review

 

QLED comes of age - and OLED had better watch out

Astonishingly punchy, bright and vibrant ; Deep, detailed blacks ; Loads of apps ; Great for gaming ; Genius evolution of OneConnect

Sony does motion even better ; OLEDs offer even deeper blacks and even better viewing angles

It’s shots fired in the 2018 leg of the QLED vs OLED campaign, and the QE65Q9F has drawn blood

Samsung Q9F QLED TV (QE65Q9F) review

 

Getting the hots for metal Quantum Dots

Unprecedented colour levels ; Ultra high brightness ; Lovely industrial design ; Minimal cabling to screen

Some HDR colour banding ; Occasional backlight clouding ; Limited viewing angles ; It’s expensive

Samsung Q9F series QLED smart TV review: Samsung's best 4K UHD TV yet

 

Quantum dots and improved backlighting make for outstanding 2160p HDR. It takes LED-backlit LCD to another level.

Excellent color and detail ; Extremely smooth action ; Top-notch remote and interface

Does not support Dolby Vision ; Mild blooming with bright objects on large dark backgrounds.

The Q9F is one awesome TV, nosing out Sony’s A1E by perhaps half a length at the wire as the better of the two. The Q9F offers better picture detail and truer color, flat-against-the-wall mounting, a better remote control, and a superior user...

Top notch tv

 

Didn't believe all the bad reviews on the q9f. I got the 75", very vivid colors, inky blacks. When watching its as if the movie is going on right in front of you, as if there is no tv there at all and the actors are just putting on a live performance...

Glare an issue? Get this tv

 

We did a lot of research between the QLED and OLED. One of our main issues was a lot of glare on our current Samsung. The QLED does not have that issue at all. Great picture, brightness and design. Would highly recommend to anyone with issues with glare,.
