Samsung Q9FN

 

Samsung Q9FN review: We love OLED TVs, but Samsung's latest provides a robust counterargument and makes a compelling case for LCD.

Gorgeous brightness and colours ; Impressively deep blacks ; Full-array local dimming ; Lovely finish

Not quite OLED levels of shadow detail

One of the most impressive TVs in recent memory.

Samsung Q9FN series (QN65Q9FN) review

 

Intensely bright picture ; Deep black levels ; Minimized halo and blooming ; Superior off-angle viewing to competing LCD TVs ; A joy to use

No Dolby Vision ; HDR brightness is aggressive

The Samsung Q9FN is the best LED/LCD TV we’ve tested thanks to its superb picture quality and outstanding ease of use. It’s the whole package, and you’re going to want one.

Samsung Q9FN QLED Smart 4K UHD TV (QN65Q9FNAFXZA)

 

The Q9FN TV proves Samsung's QLED technology can go toe-to-toe with OLED, with the widest color gamuts we've seen in a consumer display.

Very wide, accurate color. Strong contrast for an LCD TV. OneConnect box adds flexibility for wall mounting. Smart TV platform with voice assistant and smart home controls.

Expensive for a non-OLED TV. Samsung's Bixby is no Alexa or Google Assistant.

Bottom Line: The Q9FN TV proves Samsung's QLED technology can go toe-to-toe with OLED, with the widest color gamuts we've seen in a consumer display.

Samsung QE65Q9FN review

 

Samsung's impressive QLED TV is a significant step forward for the technology.

Astonishingly punchy, bright and vibrant images ; Deep, detailed blacks ; Loads of apps and features ; Genius evolution of OneConnect ; Strong handling of motion

Sony does even better motion ; OLED offers even deeper blacks and better viewing angles

The Q9FN is a significant step forward for QLED – one that should make OLED at least a bit nervous

Samsung QE65Q9FN review

 

QLED comes of age - and OLED had better watch out

Astonishingly punchy, bright and vibrant ; Deep, detailed blacks ; Loads of apps ; Great for gaming ; Genius evolution of OneConnect

Sony does motion even better ; OLEDs offer even deeper blacks and even better viewing angles

It’s shots fired in the 2018 leg of the QLED vs OLED campaign, and the QE65Q9F has drawn blood

Samsung Q9FN QLED TV (65Q9FN) review

 

The best TV ever? Could be!

Spectacular HDR picture quality ; Powerful, well-rounded sound ; Good smart system ; Cutting-edge gaming features

Limited viewing angles ; Potentially divisive design ; Over-ambitious in places

Samsung’s much-hyped QLED technology suddenly makes sense with the 65-inch 65Q9FN. By combining QLED’s unprecedented brightness and color talents with direct instead of edge backlighting, Samsung has hit on a winning, forward-thinking formula that...

Samsung Q9FN 4K UHD TV review: Top-tier goodness, now significantly more affordable

 

Samsung's Q9FN TV offers better blacks than last year's model, and is arguably the best TV on the market. The series is also a lot less expensive than it was last year.

Excellent color and clarity ; Super stylish interface, remote, and connectivity ; Excellent HDR rendering

Doesn't support Dolby Vision ; Interface and remote combo are handsome, but not as efficient as they could be

Ultra Elite. Give me a break. Still, other companies lay it on even thicker, and the plain fact of the matter is that if any TV is deserving of superlatives, the Q9FN is. It’s a terrific view, and installers and interior design folks and the terminally...

Expert review by : David NOGUEIRA (01net.com)

Test : Samsung QE65Q9FN, le meilleur des téléviseurs QLED rivalise enfin avec les modèles OLED

 

Pour cette version 2018, Samsung améliore l'électronique de son téléviseur Q9, notamment en y intégrant un système de rétroéclairage plus précis. Cela suffit-il à le rendre aussi magique qu'un modèle à écran OLED ? Vérifions-le tout de suite.

La qualité d'affichage ; Les fonctions de TizenOS ; La qualité audio ; Le mode ambiance

L'absence d'une seconde télécommande plus complète

L’écart se resserre entre le QLED et l'OLED. Si ce téléviseur Samsung QE65Q9FN ne délivre pas encore des contrastes aussi absolus que les téléviseurs OLED de LG, on ne peut que reconnaître une importante progression dans ce domaine. Le système de...
