I’m starting this thread because various issues have been mentioned with QLEDs but I’m finding it difficult to find the relevant threads.
After update 1402, my Q85T is better but has some issues.
Ultimately, I’m pretty disappointed in Samsung and the various issues with these TVs. Can someone please advise the tech team? @AntS
Giving up on Samsung. Paid nearly $3000 for a Q8FN 2 years ago (which replaced a Samsung KS8000 that died after 2 years)... nothing but problems. Went through multiple panels with various issues from Nov ‘18 - May ‘19.
Samsung did get me a semi-acceptable one eventually (after threatening a lawsuit), but even this one still has really bad DSE and gray bars.
Ended up buying another TV in Jun ‘19 because I was so disgusted, Sony X900F for my Game Room. That’s been my primary gaming TV since. No weird issues, no DSE, no gray bars, and $1000 less than the Q8FN. Granted, it’s a lower tier TV.
So this week I start using the Q8FN again in anticipation of the PS5 & Series X, which will be set-up in my living room. Had almost forgotten about their garbage firmware that completely destroyed Game Mode. Lower backlight output, broken Local Dimming, HDR in Game mode is garbage.
My guess is that they purposely do downgrades w/firmware “updates” because they think people are willing to buy new TVs every 1-2 years like cell phones now. Disgusting.
So I’m sitting here researching which TV to replace the the Q8FN with, finally wash my hands of it.
early options are LG CX and Sony X900H
Leaning towards the Sony
I just tried this fix i found and now my subtitles are super good, they don't bright up half the screen anymore.
I tested it with various series and movies
Few days ago I buy q90t..
I'm disappointed, when I play ps4 pro in game mode the game look like I play in 720p solutions... The sharp of this TV is a mess, and generally the picture quality is a mess In game mode,I see some soft line in background to go from down to up in panel... When I disable game mode this soft line don't exist,,, I testing the TV in YouTube app from TV the picture quality is great... But when going to play videos games I'm very disappointed... My old 4k TV Samsung mu6400 have better image quality in game mode... I waste my money for no reason
I have the Q95T 65 inch Eurpean model with latest Firmware 1403.1 and still have big issues with local dimming and subtitles. Still no fix from Samsung thats very bad.
