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 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 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 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 Q9FN QLED TV (65Q9FN) review

 

The best TV ever? Could be!

Spectacular HDR picture quality ; Powerful, well-rounded sound ; Good smart system ; Cutting-edge gaming features

Limited viewing angles ; Potentially divisive design ; Over-ambitious in places

Samsung’s much-hyped QLED technology suddenly makes sense with the 65-inch 65Q9FN. By combining QLED’s unprecedented brightness and color talents with direct instead of edge backlighting, Samsung has hit on a winning, forward-thinking formula that...

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

While the Q9F is still at heart an LCD TV and as such can’t fully escape a couple of traditional LCD compromises, it nonetheless sets new standards in a number of key areas, is uniquely watchable in a typical bright living room environment, and enjoys...
