Sorry about that. The mobile bug on this site is getting out of hand. I have ordered 3 75 Q90's from Samsung and the first 2 were delivered damaged. Definitely demand at least 2 delivery people as the box is huge and weighs 160lbs. Both of mine were damaged on the bottom of the TV so make sure it is completely out of the box to check for damage. Both TV's were bent from corner impact so check the tv from the side for straightness. Definitely power the tv up. Samsung used AGS for my shipping and I blame AGS for sending one person both time to deliver my TV. It's too much for one person to handle.

I ordered a 65 inch through Samsung EPP yesterday.

I am going to place it on a media stand, and need the TV to be raised about one inch so my center speaker will not block any of the screen. Does anybody have suggestions about how to raise the TV one inch? I am thinking about putting a vibration reduction pad under the TV stand.

Just purchased a 75 Q90R.

The house I just moved into has hdmi standard with ethernet wired in the wall to an equipment room upstairs. What type of cable should I upgrade to for a 15’ run?

Also, buying my first receiver. Any models or brands that work particularly well with Samsung?

I’ll have an X1X, Switch, and 5.1 system setup. Speakers are rated for up to 1100 watts (5x150w plus 350w sub).

Keep in mind the TV is 100 pounds with the stand. Foam or some other pad won't stand a chance. You might want to cut a block of wood to match the footprint of the stand. It will be hidden by the sound bar anyway.

I saw some different comments on here about how it should be delivered i.e. two people should be carrying it in, not one guy in a truck etc. I ordered directly from Samsung and want to have the right expectations about delivery.

1. Should I insist that two people are bringing it in, not one?
2. I will be mounting this on the wall. Do they help me put it up there or is that up to me?
3. Should i plug it in and look at it before I let them leave?

Thanks much!
When I ordered my TV yesterday, I went with the White Glove delivery option for $50. The delivery guy(s) will bring the TV into my house, unbox it, assemble it, and power it on to see if it works.

Since the TV is too big for me to easily move, I figure this is a good deal for $50. Samsung kind of hides this option - you have to know where to click when checking out. I had called before ordering, and was told about the White Glove option.

For a 65inch it says the weight with stand is 76.9 lbs.

My bad. Going by memory - maybe that's the shipping weight. Either way - foam won't cut it.

I figured that I'd take it now, rather than waiting six months for only a very small further decrease. Added a 4-yr warranty from Asurion for $131.99. I don't normally do this, but I've been living with a panel failure on my 4+ yr old Samsung UN75Hu8550, which is now a boat anchor. Really cheap if Asurion is any good--figure I have Amazon as an advocate if needed. Interestingly, I've paid about the same for the 82" Q90 as I did for that 75".

Only a $2K difference between the Q90 and the Q900, but I've decided that there are still a couple of shoes to drop on 8K, while the Q90 is as good as 4K is going to get, for a bright room. I figure in 5 years, I'll be replacing the 82" and my 120" FP with a modular micro-LED of 100" size for about the same cost and get a second bedroom back when I don't need a light-controlled environment for a PJ.
Anyone recommend a wall mount for the 82 inch? I will have my soundbar on the stand so want a full motion wall mount.

I agree...anything flexible or compressible is probably not the best option.

Does the XBox have to be wired directly into the Q90 for FreeSync to work? Will the soundbar act as a passthrough?

Just be prepared to help out, as these delivery guys work at trucking firm and DO NOT deliver TV's every stop. Sometimes your 2 man delivery will magically have one. Sure you could refuse delivery or help out and just get her done.....

Ah OK thank you. Did you have to pay extra for the two people, or did you just refuse it and call AGS and tell them you wanted two people?

Samsung's delivery instructions to AGS state they are to use 3 people for the delivery. If you don't call ahead they may send just one like they did in my case. I live in a rural area, so your results may vary. I would at least call them to confirm they aren't sending one person.

I suggest that immediately below the TV is the best location to keep the sound source closest to the picture on the TV. I will generalize: It's best to have the front edge of the speakers ahead of any horizontal surface, like a console top. If your wall-mount TV is not projecting beyond the front edge of the speaker soundbar, should be no problem. Even a soundbar with Atmos reflecting overhead speakers should have no problems if the front edge of the soundbar is even with or ahead of the face of the TV.

Thanks! The problem is I'll be using a tilt mount which will be around 6" away from the wall and then the soundbar is about 5" depth so the TV may cover it, although if I tilt it might not be a problem. I'm hoping I don't have to put the soundbar a few inches below the TV to make hiding the cables easier.

Anyone else have the Q90 soundbar mounted directly below an 82" Q90 with a tilt mount?

Depending on how long the HDMI run is, you might need to use a HDMI extender and use a cat6 cable. I ran into that issue with my 75" Q90 and my Denon 3500H receiver. The HDMI run was too long and wouldn't transfer the video signal.

Sussed it. You have to turn xbox settings from atmos to DD before you plug it in to OCB. It was leaving the xbox in atmos that caused the problem. Microsoft aint got atmos correct yet. So many bugs. Thanks

My run is 15’ minimum, but 20’ would be more comfortable. Was your run longer than that?

Thanks for the suggestion. I am going with a one inch thick piece of wood.

What is the best way to set up the connections? At one store, I was advised to run everything into the one connect box, and then run one cable back to my receiver for sound. I would prefer to leave everything connected to my receiver (Marantz 1609) and just run one cable out to the one connect box.

Glad I could help! I run a single cable into the TV ARC port (HDMI 3) from my AVR. It can cause a little fuss if you're using CEC on multiple input devices so keep that in mind. I keep my CEC controlled devices limited to my TV, AVR & Nvidia Shield. Everything works great.

Plus the AVR can decode much better sound. As tempting as it is to run everything to the OCB for convenience, I always come back to using my Onkyo. When you have a real good DTS or Dolby master in a movie or game, the difference is night and day on audio quality and so worth the trade-off!

2019 Samsung Q90R Owners Thread (No Price Talk)

Connections will depend on the devices you have in your setup. My setup is a mixed bag. I’m running my gaming consoles direct to the OCB and then ARC back to my AVR, which is to take advantage of the Q90’s gaming features and to not risk introducing any extra lag. For my UB820 4K Bluray player I run dual HDMI outputs, the 1st is for video direct to the OCB and the 2nd is for audio direct to my AVR. This configuration is to take advantage of both HDR10+, which my AVR is not compatible with, and full uncompressed audio tracks. Everything else is passed though the AVR and then over to the OCB.

Motion blurring?

Hi,

I have a different thread going debating the differences between the Samsung and Sony panels and many believe there is a motion blurring problem with the Samsungs mainly with sports watching. Anyone here have that experience with the Q90R?

I've double checked my settings on both the Onkyo TX-RZ920 and the TV a bunch of times. ARC worked fine with my UN65F8000 so I'm not sure what's going on.

My Monoprice HDMI cables only pass video and audio in one direction so maybe the TV doesn't like this type of HDMI cable.
Why connecting to optical is worst case?

Like I mentioned over in that thread, motion is very close between them with the 2018/2019 model year sets. I’m a die hard hockey fan and I don’t have any complaints with how my Q90 performs. Overall, maybe just a slight edge to Sony for motion.

For reference I’ve owned and tried out the A1E, 900F and Z9F Sony’s. And, I owned the Q9FN Samsung for a short time and finally settled on the Q90.

I've double checked my settings on both the Onkyo TX-RZ920 and the TV a bunch of times. ARC worked fine with my UN65F8000 so I'm not sure what's going on.

My Monoprice HDMI cables only pass video and audio in one direction so maybe the TV doesn't like this type of HDMI cable.

Because connecting an optical cable meant I would have to give up on ARC in order to get sound from the TV through my A/V receiver. Also optical limits you to 5.1, although not a factor in my case.

I did end up going with optical until 2 weeks ago. The latest Onkyo firmware update for my TXRZ920 fixed my ARC problem with the Q90. No more audio loss.
