Samsung Q9FN review: a compelling argument against OLED

 

Samsung Q9FN review: We love OLED TVs, but Samsung's latest provides a robust counterargument and makes a compelling case for LCD.

Gorgeous brightness and colours ; Impressively deep blacks ; Full-array local dimming ; Lovely finish

Not quite OLED levels of shadow detail

One of the most impressive TVs in recent memory.

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 QE65Q9FN television review

  (Rating Hidden)

The push towards bigger TVs doesn't show any signs of slowing down. But Samsung is at least acknowledging that some people don't want a 65-inch TV dominating their living room, by adding some useful features to help the QE65Q9FN blend in to its...

Samsung Q9FN (QE65Q9FN) Review

 

Samsung's flagship Q9FN QLED 4K TV arrives with a full array backlight and the expectations of AV enthusiasts on its shoulders. Thankfully it doesn't...

Exceptional picture quality ; Superb contrast and black levels ; Impressive image processing ; Excellent motion handling ; State-of-the-art smart features ; Great design and build quality

Optimum viewing angles are limited ; Occasional black crush ; No Dolby Vision support

If you're in the market and you've got the budget, then yes you probably should. The Q9FN is the most accomplished TV Samsung has ever made and proves that there's plenty of life left in LCD, especially where HDR is concerned. I have avoided awarding...

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 Q9 TV review: Expensive LCD takes direct aim at OLED

 

Samsung's high-end Q9 delivers the best picture quality of any non-OLED TV on the market, scads of features and sweet design. So can it knock off its OLED rival from LG?

The Samsung Q9 has the best overall picture quality of any non-OLED TV I've reviewed, with exceedingly bright highlights, inky black levels with minimal blooming and best-in-class off-angle and bright-room performance. Its innovative design makes...

More expensive than OLED TVs with superior image quality. Bixby can't compete with Alexa or Google Assistant. Not available in a 55-inch size.

The Samsung Q9 is an amazing performer with exquisite design and loads of extras, but it costs more than OLED TVs and doesn't perform as well.
