You can either use the uploader, copy the image URL (making sure it's the .jpg link) and use the "insert image" feature, type out [img][/img] around each image, or you can PM me and I can help.

So far picture quality is great menus are fast and responsive had a day one update as well but super zippy. I have owned the ju7100 55 and 65ks9000 65ks9500 and 65ks9800 in 4K and so far this has been the best picture the black Leyte bars are great in uhd pitchblack to me as long as it's not in vivid mode with all sensors off. And off angle is great as well I uploaded several pictures via photo bucket

So far this set has been great no clouding or light bleed I can notice even on the 9500 and 9800 when I would stand up off my couch I'd get some color shift in the lettebards like a light fog colors stay great no matter how I walk around the tv

Nice, congrats! I think this tv seems awesome in color and brightness and was kind of sick of hearing about the top oleds and z9d vs this set in some of the other threads(all are nice, the q9f is nice too!) Great to hear about the light bleed being a non issue...can you tell the color volume/saturation is way above the other KS sets you've owned, or is it more subtle?

Here is the biggest problem with the Q9 in my opinion....Very distracting flashlight effect. If this is there flagship I would be embarrassed. Color is fantastic motion is very good but to have DSE and Flashlighting is unacceptable.

You mention flash lighting, but show none in your picture as far as I can tell. Yes, there is definitely color banding (posterization) in your photo.

Stuck up, half witted, scruffy looking, nerf herder.
Double True!

Friendly suggestion, if you can, retitle the thread to add the words '2017 Samsung' 65q9f...

I know there was none in the picture I showed but the color bands are yet just another example of how can this be a flagship ? I can tho tell you it has flashlight issues tho.

The color is fantastic the voice commands are great and the Auto Calabration is going to be sweet but for me I can't Handel the other issues the set has.

I don't disbelieve you, I'd just love to see photos of it to understand their prevalence, and would love to hear more about their frequency. Maybe imagic will also chime in about this.

What is your source? Is that a bluray, is it planet earth? Did you enable UHD color on the HDMI input? I would like to check that shot out on my Sony 940e.

I have the banding as well a new set is being shipped to me hopefully the second one is better I asked if they could review the tv before shipping to ensure I have a good one but that is not possible for quality control my new one should arrive in about two weeks

Yes, both are available now. The Studio stand is $600 and the Gravity stand is $700. I was going to get the Gravity stand but it weighs as much as the TV...plus I don't really need the swivel feature.

I was under the impression that both of those stands came included with the tv. I thought that seemed too generous. I honestly never seen samsung say that they are sold separately.

If I recall correctly, both Abt and BHPHOTOVIDEO have the stands. I was quoted the price of the Gravity stand on the very same day it debuted at CES, so I knew it wouldn't come with the TV.
