Also, the 49" and 50" Q80T sizes are 60 Hz not 120 Hz, don't support VRR for gaming and don't have Samsung's Ultra wide viewing angle layer. The 49" X950H is still 120 Hz but does not have Sony's X-Wide angle viewing layer.

So... as I still have tcl 65” number 3 here (have until 1/29 to return this one back)... I’m leaning towards the x900 but while I’ve been watching cherry picked reviews, reading rtings, looking at tvs in person.... it’s time for a few dumb questions :

why, during unboxing videos do these people always put the tv face down to put the feet on ? One would think You wouldn’t want to put any kind of pressure on the screen ? I always put them on their back to put the feet on. If it’s going to make it to a wall mount I’ll put the bracket parts on while it’s on it’s feet still....

“Jailbars” since I had not followed tv tech for about the last 5 years (until my 60” Samsung decide it was time to go)... I don’t recall every seeing or dealing with these things going back 20 years to my 58” panny plasma.... what is the cause of these ? All 3 tcl’s I’ve tried have had them but number 3 here is the worse of them. The other two I could only see them off angle, number 3 the one right down the middle of the screen is apparent during sky scenes... so with that said, watching godless in DV last night I noticed 3 “jailbars”... the same episode today I could only notice the middle bar during the same scenes and had to look for it... the only variable would be last night the tv had been on for about 6-7 hrs... today only about 2 hours... do these things come out with heat ?

Dumb answer to dumb question? Because if there is an earthquake while you are attempting to put the feet on, your ceiling will fall on the back of the tv instead of the front?

LG is the only one that supposedly got 4K 120 HDR working right with the PS5. So...maybe the LG Nano?

I'm in a different boat leaning towards the Sammy QT series, but I just cried looking through the QT90 thread, so...

Suggest putting yo' foot down. Take charge of BBQ and AV. Is that too much? No.

Samsung owns the 43" market. Not great stuff, but can be decent depending on panel luck.

Their Q60T 43" is currently around $530.


Good luck.

For some odd reason(s), the Q80T seems to have better screen uniformity and is better out of the box than the Q90T. Performance is similar for these two, so maybe consider Q80T.


Good luck.

Did not want to get my two stupid questions lost in the shuffle 🤨

I purchased an 85X900H this summer and recently replace a 75 inch 900F with a 75 Q90T. In my opinion I think the Q90Thas hands down the better picture. I dont game at all so that eliminates all sorts of issues for me!

Also...I am simply not a fan of Dolby Vision. It always seems far to dark in my opinion... yes, after experimenting, even maxing all settings at times. HDR on the Samsung is flat out excellent.

I have read thru every page in the 900H AND Q90T threads and the majority of hate in the Q90T seems to come from the same dozen folks over and over and over again.

Also have a TCL 635 that is pretty good. Think Im gonna replace it with a Samsung Q80T because I like the Q90 so much!

The tcl 6 and 5 (I’ve been trying them) maybe it’s because every one so far has been a bad panel but i just can’t get a consistent picture... I’m always moving DV mode from dark to normal depending on the show / movie .. sometimes during the same movie or show one scene looks washed out then another will look crystal clear... I also struggle with sdr... I run it in movie with warm color, movies seem more consistent but shows / series are all over the place... gamma always flipping between 2.2 and 2.4...sometimes warm looks way to red / orange but normal it’s just always to blue.. i have never owned a tv that I am constantly changing settings like this...

I will say DV to me for the most part looks much cleaner than hdr....

Thank you.

I'm still looking at a 2020 Sammy QT (70-90) or a Sony 800H. I definitely want an 85". So I'm waiting for the Super Bowl sales.

This tends to hold true in other Threads as well .. even getting down to the same 2-3 folks that believe it is their appointed duty to continually lodge complaints .. unable, somehow, to post an experience and then move on ..

Oh.. ok we get it you got a decent tcl panel.... you are a tcl fanboy...others haven’t and others are researching TVs here... if you bought a new car and the windshield had a brown border all the way around it would you live with it ? No.... so go enjoy your decent panel and stop complaining about “complainers”... regardless if someone spends $200 or 3k on a tv, the expectations are to not have a distracting problem when trying to watch normal content.

That would be wrong .. I complained about your continuous complaining on different Threads .. make your point and move on, no more, no less .. I suppose that's too much to ask ..
