Samsung Q9FN review: a compelling argument against OLED

 

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 Q9 TV review: Expensive LCD takes direct aim at OLED

 

Samsung's high-end Q9 delivers the best picture quality of any non-OLED TV on the market, scads of features and sweet design. So can it knock off its OLED rival from LG?

The Samsung Q9 has the best overall picture quality of any non-OLED TV I've reviewed, with exceedingly bright highlights, inky black levels with minimal blooming and best-in-class off-angle and bright-room performance. Its innovative design makes...

More expensive than OLED TVs with superior image quality. Bixby can't compete with Alexa or Google Assistant. Not available in a 55-inch size.

The Samsung Q9 is an amazing performer with exquisite design and loads of extras, but it costs more than OLED TVs and doesn't perform as well.

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 Q9FN TV review: The big, bright, back-lit QLED boss

 

The switch to a direct-lit screen with outstanding local dimming technology finally sets Samsung's Quantum Dots free, letting their full colour,

The best HDR picture quality to date ; A robust audio system ; An exceptionally sophisticated smart TV engine ; More affordable than last year's equivalent (but still not cheap!)

Although way cheaper than last year’s equivalent (and inferior) model - it’s still hardly cheap ; Its design is chunky by today’s standards ; There’s no Dolby Vision support

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 review: Samsung’s best ever QLED TV is now cheaper

 

The finest high-end TV you can buy for gaming and daytime viewing

Impressive HDR ; Great for gaming (Low input lag, no burn in, VRR and ALLM support) ; Brilliant in bright rooms

Viewing angles still not as wide as OLED TV ; Shadow detail slightly crushed by local dimming ; Intermittent microstutter with interlaced video

The Q9FN is comfortably the best LED LCD TV Samsung has ever built, with more local dimming zones than previous models giving deeper blacks, better contrast and more impressive HDR pictures. It's by far the best gaming TV on the market, courtesy of...
