Seems to me, most early firmware updates would be more vital as they squash bugs for the new TVs. Be nice if they told us what they fixed.How long does it take for the tv to pick up the update on its own? I did the last one one but to get to my USB port requires moving the tv. Unless I hear great noticeable changes Iâ€™️ll probably wait for the software update to find it.
I wasn’t impressed either. Superficial and lazy. His panel did have some noticeable DSE, but no where near as bad as mine (which is being replaced). On mine you can clearly see the LED FALD array behind the LCD that manifests as a grid in normal content - horribly distracting. It shocked me by how bad it was.
Seems like the 65” Q90T/Q95T has a problem with DSE. I’ve seen multiple people in this thread and others having similar issues with this model and screen size.
To anyone who thought they purposely downgraded the 4K to sink below the 8K, Q90T scores 8.5 to the Q800T at 8.1. I think Rtings pretty much dispels that idea with their tests.
I agree with the way you put this. There has been so much made of the 10bit vs 8bit and the light zones. Yes it can be seen as a down grade in hardware specs but as you stated it's still a fantastic display and beats last years model in several areas. 8K make no sense. There is no content and by the time there is content it will be several years from now. My suggestion would be save your money and buy the best 4k you can now. lol, I'm sure next year Samsung is really going to gut the 4k's in order to push everyone to 8k.I’m a big fan of the q90t but the fact the rtings review of the q800t is lower tells me more that Samsung doesn’t have a handle on 8k algorithm and processing to the same level of the 4k. From a hardware prospective it’s definitely a downgrade on specs alone due to the 10bit vs 8bit and frc panel and the dimming zone count being higher on the 800t. But what happened was they lowered the price and knocked the 4k algorithm out of the park and ended up with a fantastic tv. That being said I still believe it was meant to be a downgrade to the 8k lineup for sure. Just the hardware and price indicates that. The q90t is still a fantastic tv, but no doubt it would’ve been better with the number of dimming zones in the 90r last year and a 10bit panel. However I for one prefer what we got at the price we got it as the performance beats last years 4k flagship in lots of ways.
