Samsung QE55Q9FN

 

Samsung QE55Q9FN review: OLEDs are great, but LCDs are brighter. And this is the best 55-inch LCD TV we've ever reviewed.

Fantastically bright, colourful HDR pictures ; Unprecedentedly deep and uniform black levels for an LCD TV ; Good sound quality

Loses shadow detail in very dark scenes ; Limited viewing angles ; No Dolby Vision support

The Samsung QE55Q9FN combines unprecedentedly bright HDR peaks with the deepest, most consistent black levels the LCD TV world has ever seen.

Philips 803 (55OLED803 ) review: this might just be the best Philips OLED TV yet

 

It may not be for purists, but for the price, and with some seriously vibrant imagery on show, this fantastic Ambilight flatscreen is a great option for the rest of us

The P5 image processor with SDR-boosting Perfect Natural Reality is fantastic ; Three-sided Ambilight really adds something ; Great audio for such a thin screen

Limited catch-up TV options ; Only two HDMI inputs are fully specced for 4K ; No Dolby Vision HDR support

Samsung QE55Q9FN review

 

Samsung's flagship 55inch QLED TV could be an even better bet than an OLED

Bright and vibrant picture ; Deep, detailed, uniform blacks ; Lots of apps and features ; Power via OneConnect box ; Good motion

OLEDs go even blacker ; Sony does better motion ; Viewing angles aren’t perfect

The Q9FN is a stunning achievement from Samsung and a worthy rival to the best OLEDs around

Great picture, features and quick OS

 

Great picture, features and the OS menu system is super quick ! Much faster than my previous Sony TV. Difficult to find any faults with the device, though one minor observation, shame it's not slightly slimmer.

Brilliant TV

 

I reviewed via the Internet and local retail shops for a replacement TV. There are a lot of TVs to choose from. I choose the Samsung QE55Q9FN because the thickness of this TV is unbelievably thin, with the Samsung wall mount you can hardly notice it...

Lovely picture and sound

 

I bought this 2 weeks ago. I previously had 46 inch Samsung F8000, itself a flagship TV when first bought and was mostly happy with that. The picture quality is much better on the Q9FN. When watching 4k stuff (streamed in my case as I don't have a disc...

Great picture, better than expected sound BUT.....

 

Picture is as good as other reviews have stated. I was expecting to have to get a soundbar, but actually don't think it's necessary for my set up. The huge BUT, is due to adverts within the interface - I didn't spend nearly £2000 on a TV to have ads...

Fantastic QLED picture quality

 

Very happy both with the size of screen and QLED picture quality. Excellent for sport which is our main interest and fantastic black and white in old films.

Samsung QE55Q9FN 55"

Superb Picture and Sharpness and Great Sound

 

Bought the TV about a month ago as a part of Boxing day sale. As usual, the sales team from Richer Sounds - Romford were superb and helped me in making a decision as per my requirements. They stayed a bit late after the closing hours just to finish my...
