I am trying to figure out which TV to purchase and I'm just starting to do my reading/research. I apologize in advance if this has been answered elsewhere...
My question is this...
What is the difference between the Costco model (QN82Q7DRAFXZA) found here: https://www.costco.com/Samsung-82%22...100485491.html
And the Bestbuy model (QN82Q70RAFXZA) found here: https://www.bestbuy.com/site/samsung...?skuId=6331773
Is this the same TV with a Costco-only sku? I can't seem to find anything on it anywhere.
I'm in the midst of redecorating a large family room (17'9" deep and 22.5" wide) with my wife. We're finally at a point in our lives where we have some "fun money" and I recently started down the path of updating our audio/video in this room.
I recently went to a Best Buy to look at the Televisions and was surprised at the difference in picture quality between some of the edgelit LED models and the full array. I'm not a videophile, but I still found the difference quite noticeable.
My checklist thus far:
~80 inch screen
~ full array backlighting
~ Good brightness and anti-glare - this is a large room and I don't want to be fighting reflections. I don't know if there's enough glare potential to necessitate a Q80R, especially given that I expect our TV will be mounted with a slight downward angle.
- 4K HDR
I think I'm narrowing it down to Samsung models. Is this the Samsung model with those attributes?
Is there anything else that I should perhaps be considering? I can't imagine needing 8K for years to come... the only 4K content I'd have is from streaming via Roku. Much of my content is provided via a my local Plex server.
I don't plan to use any "SmartTV" functions and intput will be received on a single HDMI port from a receiver (which will switch between multiple inputs).
Thanks in advance!
