Prices are up. Their "All Specs" aren't as detailed as one might like. For instance, only slight power consumption and weight diff. for 85" 950 & 900.

I wonder what’s really constituting the $3000 price difference??? It can’t just be the one connect box, 1 less USB port, and cosmetic design...

Just noticed the speakers slots at the back in the Q950T

We want know why Q950T is more expensive than Q900T

I'd love to know why the 85" Q950 has an MSRP of $13k and the 85" Q900 an MSRP of $10k. Using the Compare feature on the Samsung website doesn't seem to reveal any appreciable differences.

One thing we have learned over the years is that,specs on Samsung site are not countable,same goes with updates information of which bugs been fixed,guess will have to wait for reliable reviewer to get things clear.
sure the one connect box doesn't justify the +$3k

@3dprojector apparently the inclusion of the ports on the 900 makes it thicker than the 950. And, at least one 3rd party site said that the 900 didn't have the infinity edge screen of the 950 though I've not been able to confirm that either way.

So, is the only thing that separates the Q900TS and Q950TS is the one connect box? Are there any other technical/feature differences?

Exactly. Picture quality is supposed to be identical with the only difference being screen thickness and One Connect Box.

What/Who is the target market for the 950TS? I would imagine at this price point level that the buyer would have a HT system in place. If so, the increased focus on the audio is not needed. But I can see where this fits a lifestyle where a HT isn't desirable or isn't functional.


I'd really like to see a HT line series of TVs. Give me a better picture, quality and performance. Drop the streaming feature (nearly everyone will have/buy a dedicated streaming device that can be replaced/upgraded as needed), basic speakers will do fine. Just MHO.

So John Archer just did his review of the Q950TS (on Forbes), and apparently only 1 of the 4 ports supports full-bandwidth HDMI 2.1! (i.e. support for [email protected]/[email protected])

Quote:
Regardless of whether you get the 75Q900S or 75Q950ST, though, you will find four HDMI ports. Though contrary to what I thought when I first published this review, it now appears that only one of these ports (port 4) handles the key HDMI v2.1 features of [email protected] and [email protected] support. This seems - on paper, at least - as if it could be a problem if you wanted to attach both a PS5 and an Xbox Series X to the set? I’ll update this review again if I hear anything more on the subject from Samsung, and highlight the extra information on my Twitter feed.
I imagine it will be the same for all these other 8K sets - don't understand why Samsung would do this.

You seemed fairly impressed by the Q90T hands on review you posted. How do you feel the Q90T compares to the Q800T?


Also, do we know the zone count for the 8K models yet?


Thanks

Archer says the stand leans the TV back. UGH. Such a stupid design choice IMO.

For the same reason that 4K isn't 4000 pixels. Math. The resolution is doubled in each direction from 1080 x 1920 (HD) to 2160 x 3840 (UHD/4K) and again to 4320 x 7680 (8K). It makes scaling much much easier this way. We call them 4K and 8K for ease of reference.

It is over 300 on the 65" and 75". It is thought that the 82" will have 480 zones.

https://hdguru.com/review-samsungs-q...r-8k-adoption/

The Samsung QN75Q800T is a great display for presenting HDR. The 65 and 75-inch Q800T models are equipped with Samsung’s Direct Full Array 24x LED backlight system with local dimming. We counted more than 300 LED zones on the 75-inch model. The 82-inch model has a larger Direct Full Array 32x implementation.
