This TV is awesome for gaming. I use game mode and have not had any of the issues described in the Q90T thread (ghosting and local dimming issues).Hey Gang,
I'm a disgruntled Sony 900H owner coming up on my return window and pissed about the lack of VRR and ALLM and what's looking like broken promises.
I'm considering a 65" Q80t instead and figured I'd ask about it. I'm a gamer for sure and heard about some issues with game mode degrading the picture on these but that this might be fixed. Are there any major issues like this or any other major issues/broken features that I should be aware of? Thanks a lot for the help!
Picture quality is amazing with this TV using game mode and Samsung did fix some gaming issues with previous firmware revisions. I have a very clean panel (no DSE, banding, etc) and I think most Q80Ts have very good uniformity compared to some of Samsung’s other models in this years QLED lineup.
One issue that I have is eARC will not passthrough lossless PCM but I expect they will get fixed eventually. For now I’ve set my PS5 to Bitstream Dolby and have had no issues with TrueHD Atmos over eARC from the PS5. One issue that has been reported is 4K/120 not working with HDR on PS5 (works fine on the Xbox Series X) due to an HDMI 2.1 bug that only impacts Samsung.
Works with Xbox Series X but not with PS5
The only game I have that supports 4K/120 is Dirt 5 and it doesn’t work right with HDR at that frame rate. I would imagine this will get fixed before I really need the feature working properly since it is working fine with the Series X and Samsung. Not sure if Samsung or Sony are to blame for it but I’m sure it will get fixed.
