Was ready to go for this until I saw no 120hz. What kind of impact would that have if I'm planning to use with the new consoles? Only have space for a <50" - are there any similar price and spec alternatives worth holding out for?
Same price now also elsewhere including Richer Sounds and John Lewis. RS deal here: https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/samsung-qe49q80t-49-inch-4k-ultra-hd-hdr-1000-smart-qled-tv-with-apple-tv-app-freesat-hd-incl-6yr-warranty-3584347
Thanks for correcting me. I'm surprised that the Q70t also has 2.1 (horror)
Not true. flatpanelshd.com/focus.php?subaction=showfull&id=1601535638 You have to go to the 55" and above for hdmi 2.1 and 120hz.

It does have, I think, a minimal amount of banding/clouding, but not really any worse than my current OLED, so early days, but I think i'm going to keep it. The banding is not even close to what I've had on previous Samsung & Sony LCDs that I've had before.I guess the Panel Lottery was fairly good to me this time. I watched the Chelsea game last night & it didn't seem to bother me, and I kept looking for it.
Watched a detailed review on youtube last night... on the Q90 vs a C9, it was clear that the colours and the blacks on the LG Oled screen were a step ahead, it just looked more detailed and brilliant - vivid I would say. I have a 2014 LG Oled and still today I am amazed at looking at HD/4K content - if you can get the £1000 cashback then it's a deal otherwise I would say go for an OLED if you are after stunning images, if you playing games 24h/7 - then maybe get a Job? :-)
This has micro stutter, weird cos sports are fine and motion is good, but when watching soaps etc it sometimes judders. Known issue with all Qled’s. The enhancers and sliders make no difference and Samsung seem to have no idea how to fix it.
for the price I must admit that the stand looks like a 43'' cheap TV, wouldn't like to look at stand for hours...maybe it is just me! also, buy a cheap OLED used , any.... on Ebay and get £1000 cashback via the current samsung promotion . some OLEDs are sold for less than £300.

There’s even more incentive for staff now so I suppose it’ll either make them want to keep up the service and grow OR get greedy and start going the Curry’s way..... but I can’t see the Directors letting that happen (y)
Lets just hope that they can continue on and keep doing what they do best. I also second that JL customer service is amazing too :)
I did say that I got the sentiment, but to be honest, despite their growth, customer service has always been good at RS. You would hope that it will get even better now Julian Richer has signed the business off to the staff. Wherever I can I buy my tech from either RS or John Lewis (y)
You know what I mean. Family business up against billion pound corporations like Amazon etc and companies like Currys on every corner. Its a shame more people don’t shop there. Last tv I bought from there was touch and go fitting in my car, salesman told me if it didn’t fit he would drop it off for me on his way home in his own car. Where else do you get that haha?
Some richer sounds still have last years excellent b8 65 stock if you don't mind an older model. It's £1500

Samsung QE55Q90R (2019) 55 inch QLED 4K HDR 2000 Smart TV £1899 @ Simply Electricals for £1899£1,899£1,9995% off
Getting lower. Still abit high but going in the right direction. Top Qled TV for this year.
Yeh the 90R stand just looks like a bent piece of mild steel, be better for people with less space or room on their av furniture though
I prefer the stand on the 85R to the one on the 90.
The 85R is a descent set. Don't have to go for the flagship TV. I am thinking of waiting till the next consoles get announced. If you want to save yourself some money go for the 85/80. I am not actually to bothered about the connect box. If anything is just something else you have to find the space for.
I was just looking at the 55Q80R & 55Q85R look decent a few £ cheaper than the 90R The 80R though don’t have the one connect box like the 85R but is that box worth £300 ish Really liking the look of these Samsung’s sets, watched a good review on the 85R today what made me think is the 90R worth the extra brass :/ Good luck
I’d go for the Samsung, safer option not worth the risk with screen burn etc, it’s bright, reflective filter, decent viewing angles and decent blacks. Some say better than OLED, some say not far off OLED so it’s got to be worth it

How? I signed up but i don't see anything about a 10% discount?
Presumably they want people to be aware of the difference because at the high end QLED > OLED and the cost is correspondingly higher as well. Also that gap is going to increase with the arrival of self emmissive QLED in ~ 2020.
Cool. QLED! Yeah, I’m pretty sure Samsung’s Marketing Department worked hard on that one. (lol)
Well not just gimmicks as it reflects that OLED can get screen burn in rare circumstances but this screen certainly is not better than the best OLED. For that you need the Q9FN QLED with FALD and > 3300 Nits peak brightness.
Ive had a bit look round on gumtree and people want as much as £700 for them, not saying they'll get it though... but £600 might be a better guess. The burn in thing what you said is correct, but they're saying it to match LG etc with Oled which can have a problem with burn in. It does make you wonder if Samsung picked Q for the name because it looks like an O though ...

Yeah totally. Having had IB on my last two Samsung phones I know it's a real issue. Especially with apps like Waze. Different thing on the TVs sure but my daughter sure does find the worst channels for logos (I'm looking at you obnoxious 100% opaque white HD letters in Disney junior HD). Can't face the anxiety any longer! My wife thinks I'm making her change channel for educational reasons 🤣
It's an odd one from sony, the xe90 is direct lit bit the xe93 is edge lit. I was always under the impression that direct lit was preferable! I have a 2012 Panasonic plasma so anything is bound to be an improvement at this stage :-) the GT50 was a great set in its day though. Also it's IB not IR that I'm concerned about, unlike my plasma where I run my "commodore 64 loading screen" disc every now and again to even the IR out, the organic material in OLEDs actually degrades and the only thing you can do is degrade the rest to match lowering the overall brightness of the screen. Now in practical, real life examples these things can be hit and miss, depending on usage. But as a long term plasma user id rather be shot of the concern. Also I'm saying this more to convince myself as I realise the LG will have a better picture. (embarrassed)
That’s the thing, I’m not too keen on too much faffing about with more gear. Just want a simple tv setup with better than average sound without spending more money on amps and speakers and cabling.

Any owners of this TV and can confirm if its had the Dolby Vision update yet?
Thanks for the info Darren. As most processing settings are a hangover from trying to sort out the deficiencies of the LCD days, I'm struggling to understand why you should need processing? If a producer wanted you to see something different from there video capture, surely they would apply the process on there end so everyone benefits? IMO, the great thing about Plasma and now OLED, is that the panel is good enough to provide a fantastic picture without the need for any processing at all. I've demoed lots of TV's from Sony in the past and I've found the processing can make things look better at FHD but this always comes at the expense of SD being filled with artefacts and being totally unwatchable.
With no processing LG is exactly the same as Sony with no processing. Switching Sony's processing on, take it to another level all together.
Lol the guy is lying to you. No atmos.
I have no idea just saying what the guy at Curry told me. Whatever was coming out of it, it sounded really good.
