Awesome, congrats again! Might wanna peak In it and make sure it isn't cracked. You'll be destroyed if you wait til later only to find it broken.

I can tell you right now the Q9F is gonna wreck that Z9D in bright room performance with all those windows and light.

I wonder if the 1st owner is currently assembling or has to wait til later.

BESLC 03-15-2018 12:06 PM

Congrats to new owners, very excited to hear your feedback on the Q9. Your willingness to share your time and impressions greatly appreciated.

andrewdmizzou 03-15-2018 12:47 PM

Just curious where did you guys order your Q9FN from? I ordered from Samsung direct but its still saying backorder. It said something like will ship by week of march 25th when I clicked on add to cart.

Going to be about 4 or 5 more hours. NY350Z probably be the first.

I can't believe Samsung says lay it face down on a table to put the stand on. I thought you never lay these screen side down? Maybe it is just me being extra careful.
Was just reading the instructions, I still have another 2 hours before it is set up.

Yeah, don't do that with a FALD display.

That is what I thought but this is from Samsung. Crazy.
Have to figure out another way to get the stand on.

ray0414 03-15-2018 01:15 PM

I've stood many tvs on its side and up against the wall, including my curved tvs.

I would try putting it on its side. With my Vizio, I placed it on a chair without arms, with the stance of the TV it made it easy to install the stand or legs or feet.

Which part, don't lay on its side or on a table?


I would think a bed? Or be sure to place some towels down on the table first?

Looking like I may have to bring my cherry picker home with me :)

Congrats on your purchase. Very exciting. I'm less interested in zone counts then your perception of the quality of the picture in the room conditions you have, especially with window shades open and the lights on low :-). That's generally how I watch TV since mine is in a large living room.

Don't lay it face down, LED lights can shift increasing your chances getting more blooming.

Very dark ambient light performance would be nice ...

That works if you can get the stand on.

I would still suggest you place the display on it's side, even if you're installing on your bed.

Wouldn't you want to follow the manufacturers directions? I don't think the LEDs really shift, it's the different layers of the LCD that can move around I guess. But wouldn't laying it face down apply even pressure rather than on it's side? Shoot, I put my OLED facedown to install the stand like the directions said, and that screen is super thin. Well, whatever works for you guys. Good luck!

I had to unbox my 2017 Q7F and attach the stand. (It was a mistake -- I thought BB would do that.) The setup instructions said to lay it screen down on a table to attach the stand. I had no suitable table nearby, so I used instead the floor (carpeted) with a blanket for extra padding. It worked.

Please test the Variable Refresh Rate feature if you can. I don't believe that Microsoft has exposed that in the Xbox One X yet, but if you have access to a PC with a recent-ish AMD card that *should* work. Lots of gamers out there are looking forward to these sets, which are the first VRR TVs on the market.

NY350Z 03-15-2018 03:45 PM

I need some help. I have it up and running but the motion is terrible and I am a Sony guy so I am not familiar with Samsung settings.
What do I want this set to for cable tv. No SOE please. Right now it is not smooth at all.
What other settings like local dimming.

Local dimming low for sdr, and high for hdr.

The panel for motion may need to break in. I'd suggest maybe running it with some SOE for a bit just to break it in. Otherwise, try bumping judder control to around 2 or 3 to help this should not induce much or any at all SOE.

HDTVTest's Vincent Teoh unboxed a Sony X900F today (14 hours ago) on youtube and he leaned the TV against a wall with one short side against the wall and the other short side on the floor.
