Samsung Q9F series (QN65Q9F) review

 

For the best LED TV money can buy, look no further than Samsung's Q9F.

Bright, vivid picture ; Excellent HDR picture production ; Gorgeous and useful design elements ; Tizen OS is outstanding ; Extremely user friendly

Imperfect black levels ; Expensive

The Samsung Q9F combines great picture quality, gorgeous design, intelligence, and ease of use in a way no other television has before.

Samsung Q9FN series (QN65Q9FN) review

 

Intensely bright picture ; Deep black levels ; Minimized halo and blooming ; Superior off-angle viewing to competing LCD TVs ; A joy to use

No Dolby Vision ; HDR brightness is aggressive

The Samsung Q9FN is the best LED/LCD TV we’ve tested thanks to its superb picture quality and outstanding ease of use. It’s the whole package, and you’re going to want one.

Samsung Q9FN QLED Smart 4K UHD TV (QN65Q9FNAFXZA)

 

The Q9FN TV proves Samsung's QLED technology can go toe-to-toe with OLED, with the widest color gamuts we've seen in a consumer display.

Very wide, accurate color. Strong contrast for an LCD TV. OneConnect box adds flexibility for wall mounting. Smart TV platform with voice assistant and smart home controls.

Expensive for a non-OLED TV. Samsung's Bixby is no Alexa or Google Assistant.

Bottom Line: The Q9FN TV proves Samsung's QLED technology can go toe-to-toe with OLED, with the widest color gamuts we've seen in a consumer display.

Samsung Q9FN 4K UHD TV review: Top-tier goodness, now significantly more affordable

 

Samsung's Q9FN TV offers better blacks than last year's model, and is arguably the best TV on the market. The series is also a lot less expensive than it was last year.

Excellent color and clarity ; Super stylish interface, remote, and connectivity ; Excellent HDR rendering

Doesn't support Dolby Vision ; Interface and remote combo are handsome, but not as efficient as they could be

Ultra Elite. Give me a break. Still, other companies lay it on even thicker, and the plain fact of the matter is that if any TV is deserving of superlatives, the Q9FN is. It’s a terrific view, and installers and interior design folks and the terminally...

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...

Samsung QN65Q9 LCD Ultra HDTV Review

 

Samsung's new top-of-the-line QLED flagship brings first-rate brightness, brilliant color, and crisp resolution to the Ultra HD party, but enthusiasts might notice its lack of a full-array, localdimming backlight. Cheers,

Bright and punchy HDR; Excellent resolution; Stunning color

No Dolby Vision; Edge-lit instead of full-array backlight dimming

Samsung QE65Q9FAM

 

The QE65Q9FAM is Samsung's flagship 65-inch TV for 2017, and the first chance we've had to delve into the brand's new QLED technology. In other words, it's a pretty big deal.

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
