Anti glare screen problem - ceiling light reflections

Got a new QA75Q80RAW TV today. It's great in the daylight but turn on a ceiling light and the anti glare screen shows rainbow reflections that disturb the viewing experience in a very poor way. Am I alone with this problem?

Did you get the tv exchanged?   I'm having the same problem with my brand new q90t.  This sucks!   Check out the images

Samsung refunded my Q80 75" TV, no questions asked, so I guess it's a known issue. I didn't ask for an exchange because the screen was working as it should. The anti glare filter is amazing at dispersing daylight but it's horrible under lights, especially LED ceiling lights. The filter spreads vivid lines of LED light across the full width of the screen.

Did you buy the TV from Samsung or retailer?

I bought direct from Samsung. I doubt it would be an issue either way though.

 

FYI, I just bought a Nanocell 75 inch from a rival manufacturer. No issues with the anti glare at all. I can see my ceiling lights reflected with a fuzzy halo but that's as bad as it gets. I bought the 75nano91 in 4k (nano90in the USA I think). The nano 95 and 99 would also be ok. The nano8* models are edge lit so avoid those of your budget can stretch to the FALD nano9*s. 

 

Also, voice activation in this brand is also better than Bing but that's not hard. Bing was rubbish on the Q80R.

After much research I just bought and setup my new qled 80T.  I also have the  rainbow streaks across the screen.   I can't beleive that this TV passed whatever user testing Samsung performed.  Currently looking for a comparable replacement.  This TV is A+ otherwise.
