I just got my 75Q8FN on Saturday. However, I don't see any blooming and this is after watching Olympics in 4K, Lost in Space on Netflix and many, many other programs. The only other setting I have modified, beyond what I talk about below, was the Local Dimming: I have that set to the highest setting. I am trying to find a show that effectively shows a bloom... but I personally can't see it. That's not to say it's not existent... but for me, I can't see it on any black bars. What sold me was the Opening Ceremony on the Olympics, when it's black but for the swirling white dots. It looked unreal. Honestly, the blacks look really crisp and inky to my eyes. After reading a few people's thoughts/opinions on this set, I was prepared for the worst... expecting to be pleasantly surprised. In actuality, I'm blown away. The biggest issue that I have (and I knew I would have) would be the juddery motions. Coming from Plasma... both my wife and I notice it. However, it's not horrible to either of us and I don't think there's a 'perfect' TV out there that would fix everything: without having to spend tens of thousands of dollars to purchase it. I know the Sony's tend to be better in this regard... but I like the 'pop' of color from the Qled line... that and my wife liked this set more as well. I have to please her too, lol. After a few settings being tinkered with (mainly on the MotionPlus menu), I can honestly say I am very, very pleased with this set and the judderyness is becoming less noticeable. Would I have loved to upgrade to the 75Q9FN? Or X900F... maybe. But I don't feel like I am missing out on too much.
