Samsung QM85D SMART Signage vs $3000 LED smart tvs

I was looking into buying a new 4k tv for movies, gaming and tv room and came across this commercial monitor and trying to figure out which would be better we never use any smart apps in any of our tv's at home, we use gaming consoles, cable boxes and media devices. So if i could get this Samsung 4k commercial monitor for under 3k (refurb) what would be the pros/cons compared to a 75-85 inch $3000 dollar 4k led tv from consumer model tvs? It seems like the commercial monitor has more horse power than consumers tv based on specs I can find but what about HDR and other stuff consumers tv advertise?
thoughts? Obviously I want the best picture and performance for movies, gaming (consoles and maybe i'll even hook up the pc for gaming maybe) that I could get for $3k

This is the OLED section, not the LED section. The LED section is also known as the LCD section.

If you want the best picture as you specified you should get an actual OLED, which is manufactured by the likes of LG, Sony, Panasonic, Phillips, NOT Samsung but you cannot get a 75-85 inch OLED for $3000.

Considering the signage TV you are looking at has HDMI 1.4 and only 500 nits of brightness, it definitely doesn't have "more horsepower".

Pass on it all day.

From the specs, it does not have HDR support (most likely), can't play most 4K blu rays due to HDMI 1.4, claims to supports around 100% of Rec.709 color gamut, and is either a VA or IPS/PLS panel, with no local dimming (and unsure on global dimming since DCR is only 5000:1 and those specs are usually some absurdly high number, even for TN monitors). So I'd say it's probably not worth it unless you plan on watching mostly 1080 and down content, in which case it might be a fairly impressive picture simply due to size, but at that size you will be highly likely to see flaws in compressed content like cable/satellite. And really we can only guess as to how well it upscales, since it's a digital signage monitor and likely not very focused on upscaling capabilities. So probably not a good buy, since it's not future proof or even present proof and we really have to guess at pretty much everything else.

On the plus side, we finally found a TV the Samsung QLED's can compete with
