This is ridiculous. DV is taking off and your lack of support does nothung but hurt your customers.
How about you lead the way and put your customers before some ***** fisted marketing strategy?
I was going to buy a 75" Q90T this year, but was turned off by two factors, only 1 x HDMI 2.1 port and no Dolby Vision. I'm happy to wait until the 2021 models come out now, but if Samsung don't correct these two issues I have, then I'll just have to switch to another vendor. I already have an LG OLED in my house, but I don't want another one for my living room as it only looks it's best in a very dark room, the screen completely washes out when the sun shines through the window and the constant screen dimming to avoid burn in when using an app like Youtube drives me crazy. At night it looks amazing, but for my living room for more general purpose then I want something like the QLED which will suit the room better in all conditions.
I really like the Samsung products and it's my first preference for my next purchase, but I really don't understand how anyone can defend Samsung at this point on the Dolby Vision issue. Support all the HDR standards, especially the one with the most support from content providers, otherwise you are not acting on behalf of the interests of the consumer and that will lose you a sale from me instantly. The big one is now that the Xbox Series X is going to support Dolby Vision, with Samsung TVs not offering support for the standard with this announcement, then it's just the nail in the coffin as far as I'm concerned.
The models were announced in March this year then started getting released from April, so it would be more like a 5 month wait to see what the 2021 specifications are, not 12. Unless you want to buy something before Christmas of course.
I'm in the same boat. I'm eyeing off the 65Q95T but the lack of DV is a deal killer. So disappointing as Q80+ are head and shoulders above the competition but their inability to read the tea leaves and see DV has won the race to HDR content. Get on board and I would buy today,
I just ordered a Q60T for my bedroom. While I was aware of Samsung didn't support DV, I wasn't of Samsung Tvs tend to massively misunderstand Netflix and Disney's HDR streaming.
After thoroughly read this thread I'm beyond frustrated and disappointed with my purchase.
I know Sony, a few years ago, rolled out a firmware update to enable DV on the brand's TVs. Well, I'd definetely pay an extra in order to get Samsung make the same on its brand new QSERIES.
