Not trying to troll right here but this drop on 7-11-2018 is way out of bounds. Its 2 grand brand new on amazon right now.
Is this the 2017 model or the 2018 model?

This is last year's model unless the info page is wrong. Backlighting: Edgelit the 2018 Q9 is full array backlighting not edge lit.
ScottMartinSF
the way you can tell for Samsung's Q series, is if the model has Q*FN being 2018, and Q*F being 2017. hope this helps
This is being advertised as Q9FN which is the 2018 model, yet pictures are showing and describing the Q9F which is the 2017 model. You should correct that.

So this is the 2017 model and not 2018 model? Please confirm
DVU0713
Yes, These are the 2017 models. The drop discretion, pictures, specs, even the model numbers listed at the bottom of the page were all correct. The only incorrect portion of the drop was the title of the drop.
I want to add, make sure you’re not buying the COMMERCIAL model. They are NOT the same. Commercial versions only use a 6 bit panel vs 10 bit for consumer
This TV is cheaper on other sites, amazon, etc. Don't assume its a good deal because of Mass Drop.

I searched the model number on google, and found it 2 days ago for 100 dollars cheaper, today, it is 800 cheaper than massdrop.

Be careful with these. The commercial version is NOT the same as the consumer one. Acronym, BCAV is selling one for $1700 that is not the consumer version
Man, for the price of some of these TVs I could buy a used car. Does anyone really get that much more value out of their TV to make it worth 2.5x to 3.5x more than other 65 inch 4k TVs? I got one for about $700 at a local retailer and it looks great.

I could walk or take a bus instead of a car and use that money for food! Why would anyone buy a car?
Everything is relative.
tyler256
It depends on what you watch really. food channel and news? You won't see a difference. High production TV shows and movies like GoT and the Marvel series, or play video games? night and day. Some scenes are harder to show on a TV than others are, which means that there are some scenes where the difference between the $3500 and the $500 is very little. For other scenes (namely ones with bright and dark spots) it can be the difference between seeing whats going on and looking at a bunch of shadows.
Considering this is more expensive than the B7 or C7 OLED, I’d wait for the next drop of one of those instead. It’s just a better PQ set than this at a cheaper price ($500).
It would be nice if it were clearly stated that this is the 2017 model and not the newly released 2018 model.
Can anyone confirm that this TV support 4096 × 2160 native? Because my 55" SUHD 4K Flat Smart TV KS8000 Series 8 does, but doesn't show it on the spec page.
KasMasterZ
Yes, it does.
Even at $2499, this TV is an overpriced joke. "QLED" is a A Samsung marketing lie that tries to trick the consumer into thinking it's OLED when it's really just plain old LED. 2017 was a terrible year for Samsung TVs. Do not get this TV.

Except I explicitly said I was referring to the statement that QLED is trash in general... so not “completely” irrelevant.
owtlaw333
Wasn't talking to you, although since you chimed in, you might be mistaken too, no one expressly said QLED is trash in general, I'm pretty sure op was talking about 2017 QLEDs in this drop which ARE trash.
This year's Q9F has so many more improvements over last years. To include a much better viewing angle, LED backlit direct array zones for removal of most light bleed, brighter than OLED, Bixby assistant if you are into that, the one-connect box is the only cord running to the TV and can be 15' away from the TV, and a better light absorbing filter. All of those things and maybe perhaps (not confirmed yet, VRR support for XB1X/S) This drop is for last year's drop though.
OLEDs have a much shorter life-span than QLEDs. Also, the OLEDs have a greater burn-in potential. Oh, and dont forget you pay significantly more for these ”privileges”.
Kelley.merch
What are you talking about paying significantly more? This tv is 3k at 65 inch and the LG B7A OLED is 2k....
Ap717
And how much at 75”?
Its a bit of a long shot trying to get this to the drop. Even is the Q9F is one of the best tv's currently available for purchase. I think theres room for a great price drop on these since anyone considering the Q series probably has heard about VRR coming to the 2018 tvs. If the Q9 ever makes it to around 2k it might be worth the trouble.

Got my 65” Vizio M at Costco for $700 a couple weeks ago. It actually gets comparable ratings to the VIZIO P for 4K gaming. Plus Costco kicks in an extra 1 year warranty beyond the manufacturers for TVs.
it should be noted that I had walked in there planning on buying the LG 65” OLED but the price on the Vizoo M was too good to pass up.
JasonM1
Yep, the Vizio M’s are a decent midrange TV. My dad’s got an M70 and an M75. Both look nice!
Exactly. I picked up an OLED and it's the best picture I've ever seen. In contrast, a coworker grabbed a QLED and said he hated it. Returned it immediately.
I'm not saying it's an awful panel, but unless you're watching in a SUPER bright room, ALL the time with sun just pouring onto the tv like Indiana Jones lighting up the lost city, then you'll be happy with OLED.
In fact, my LG panel has a surprisingly effective UV filter on top of the glass. It's been amazing. I did have one scare where I thought my cats had ripped a hole in it...but it turned out just to be a smudge. For whatever reason, smudges turn bright silver/white, so youll want to keep it clean. I guess the fact that I've had cats claws hit the fuckin thing 5x and no scratches should ease those with fears about it.
Speaking of my kitties, they are SUPER attracted to the OLED. I've turned the brightness of the panel down to ~30/100, and it's still extremely vivid, and fairly bright. I actually prefer that it doesn't have the unbridled energy of a standard LCD, because I get bad headaches staring at them for hours. Anyways, leave it to me to hinge my entire review on my cats reactions to it, but suffice it to say the things is pretty damn bright and vivid for them to be obsessed with it the way they are. I actually had to buy canned air and spray it near them (not ON them, just scare em), and it finally got them to stop.
Well, that got off topic fast...the point I was trying to make is that everything I've heard about these panels says they are "good", and also that they are inferior in almost EVERY way to current OLEDs. From my understanding, Samsung themselves have admitted this, and are attempting to make vast improvements with this year's models.
BONUS: the ONLY time I'd recommend a QLED over a standard tv is if you're going to be using it as a computer screen, or playing a game with a static HUD for 5-10 THOUSAND hours. OLEDS are definitely capable of both Image Retention and burnin...I've had mine for 2 months though, and I have not had IR happen once, not even when playing monster Hunter for 12 hours straight (don't judge me!!!). As long as you get the B/C/E7 series, you'll be just fine. There's a pixel shifter that moves the image one pixel to the right etc, every so often. It's so small you'd never notice, but it helps to prevent IR. There's also a pixel refresher that runs automatically after the panel has been on for 4+ hours.
TL;DR: My cats are assholes, Samsung brought their B game (but promised 2018 QLED will be more competitive). Get an OLED, unless you fall under the very small percentage of people with special or offlabel use cases.
At this price, a $2,100-ish 65" OLED is a significantly better deal and better performance vs QLED.
Not that this isn't a nice TV, but the lack of HDR support vs OLED and it's worse black levels, you can do better than this for the price
lemkeant
It has HDR support, HDR+ is a standard that is not paying Dolby Vision for the name. I'm waiting for the Variable Refresh Rate of the 2018 Samsung QLEDs with better local dimming since the VRR will work with the XB1X games.
Temperdsteel
Yes it can PLAY HDR content, but compared to LG’s, Sony’s and even TCL and Vizio it doesn’t play them very well.
How does this compare to OLED?

Well until I do I'll take your word for it - but right now, asking how this compares to OLED isn't the same as how this compares to a product not on the market. Maybe in 2019 it will take the cake, in 2018, it's not even debatable. Unless of course you are only watching daytime TV with all the blinds open... at which point I don't think this is the TV for most Oprah and Ellen fans.
I'd think most people are watching movies or playing games towards the evening and into the night, likely with the blinds closed, around prime time. In which case, this current Sammy doesn't compare well at all, and brightness to compete with the sun isn't necessary.
KD27
Are you deaf? I SAID 2018 QLED! I didn't say 2017 QLED. Samsung completely re-engineered the new 2018 model, addressed all the deficiencies in the 2017 model. How many times must I say it?
