abunda_amazon_reviews Bought this last week and just received it yesterday. It has a magnificent picture. We are blown away. The setup was easy and we had everything up and going in no time. We wall mounted ours but didn't use the no gap mount as our studs are wider than the width of the mount. Love the One Connect box - makes it so easy to connect everything up without having to take the TV off the wall. Would definitely recommend the Q90 - equal to if not better than OLED and without the burn in issues. Updated: Sadly I have to update this review and remove three stars due to the terrible Bixby voice control. There is nowhere to turn the thing off and it incessantly cuts in when watching programs and mutes the program while it tries to search for something. I can no longer recommend this TV until this is fixed.;;Reviewed in the United States on March 8, 2019;;2.0 out of 5 stars;;Wonderful TV no longer;;Mwanamatapa;;;I received the product from UPS around noon with no apparent damage. Immediately followed the installation and setup instructions and when I powered up the TV all that appeared were colored lines. There were also some unusual patterns in various portions of the screen (under the glass). The TV wouldn't provide any setup instructions. I immediately contacted Amazon to return the TV for a replacement. They suggested I first discuss the problem with an "expert" before returning the product, so I asked them to call me. They called back immediately and as I was explaining the problem our call was disconnected. I've not heard back from them. So, I've boxed the unit back up and UPS will pick it up when they deliver the replacement. So far no indication from Amazon as to when I can expect a NEW replacement. I've purchased several Samsung products and have been very happy with them. I will change the overall rating once I receive a new replacement that works. I received a second unit and the box was intact. However, when I turned it on I couldn’t believe I had received a second defective tv. This one had colored lines running down the left side, horizontal lines across the middle, and a black smudge on the upper left corner. I’m done with this model and have requested a refund. I’m now looking to Sony and LG. It appears as though Samsung’s quality control has suffered a setback.;;Reviewed in the United States on May 7, 2019;;1.0 out of 5 stars;;New TV Disappointment- updated;;steve albright;;;I own two 65” OLED 4k TV’s and I wanted something larger; but, I wasn’t willing to spend almost $5000 for a 75” OLED that will eventually have burn-in. It took five years of regular use, but unlike image retention which is temporary, one of my OLED’s began to show a very faint dimming of the pixels where bright white channel logos “burned in”: I only noticed it when cleaning the screen I couldn’t remove what I thought was merely a smudge. I must admit, until recently, I’ve always considered QLED’s a literal scam in which the “O” of an OLED TV was replaced by the “Q” which looked very similar (even though the TV’s were completely different technologies). However, the Samsung Q80R is the first LED/LCD television to actually compete (and in some ways beat) my OLED's. There were two main reasons that I never contemplated owning an LED/LCD TV for my large family room: 1: Muddy blacks in dark scenes. 2: Poor image quality when viewed at an angle. With OLED HDTV my guests and I have enjoyed perfect blacks and vivid colors from all seating positions for the past five years, but I wanted a larger screen to help fill the room without spending a fortune. To my surprise, Samsung’s latest Q80R and Q90R (not the Q60 or Q70) offer deep blacks and vivid hues at wide viewing angles with very bright pictures. It actually blew me away to see a good picture on an LCD TV at an 80 degree angle! The special filter that Samsung introduced on the Q80R (and Q90R) is a complete game changer! I was also very impressed by the deep blacks and high contrast ratio on my new Q80R. Given the choice between an 82” Q70R and the 75” Q80R (in the same price range), I’m glad I chose the Q80R: the ULTRA-VIEWING ANGLE feature (not available on the Q70R) is a must have for anyone spoiled by OLED. As for the Q90R, I like the smaller pedestal base but I don’t believe the small increase in picture quality was worth the premium price tag (IMHO). I’m also not a fan of 8k TV’s since there is not a single TV on the the market (which I’m aware of) that even offers an ATSC 3.0 (4k) tuner. When I first set up my Q80R I was very disappointed in the poor picture quality of the default settings and was starting to regret my purchase. It took over a week of tweaking the unusual picture settings, but I can actually confess that I don’t miss the OLED (which is now in the guest bedroom). Unlike other televisions that I’ve calibrated, the numeric settings and scales on the Q80R are very different: for example, the brightness ranges from -5 to 5 (as compared to 0 to 100 for most other brands). This difference is confusing and very unfamiliar. To help, I’ve posted my preferred settings below: I’ve turned off the “auto” picture adjustments because they play havoc with the picture quality. I’ve also turned off the “Contrast Enhancer” for the same reason. I’ve put “Digital Clean View” on the “Auto” setting for OTA and Low for my ROKU and limited the ambient light dimming to a minimum of 20 (out of 50). Back light: 38 Brightness: 2 Contrast: 32 Sharpness: 12 Color: 32 Tint: G8 Gamma 2.2 White Balance: 2 Point Red Gain: -2 Green Gain: 6 Blue Gain: -4 Red Offset: -2 Green Offset: 6 Blue Offset: -4 Color Space Settings: Custom Color Red Red 50 Green 54 Blue 46 These settings look great on all inputs and the built-in ATSC 2.0 tuner. F.Y.I. This TV is very bright and (if not careful) it is prone to having “over bright” whites in which all detail is lost: i.e. mattresses lose their quilted tops and snow loses its shading and texture. This is completely the opposite of the muddy blacks prevalent on most LCD TV’s (which is not a problem on the Q80R). P.S. I gave the smart features a 3/5 stars because I had to disable the annoying "Smart Hub" default. I also gave the remote a 3/5 because it lacks features common on other remotes (like a number pad or picture settings button). Fortunately, I have a Harmony 650 universal remote (which I love). I am not a fan of the very wide leg stance found on most large TV's today. To accommodate my normal size entertainment center, I purchased a "Rfiver Universal Swivel TV Stand Tabletop TV Stand Base": https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07M6114YM/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 On this stand the 75" Q80R is very well supported and I love the swivel feature! As I previously noted, I preferred the Q90R base, but was unwilling to pay a premium price just to get the smaller stand. B.T.W. BEWARE OF UNVERIFIED REVIEWS FROM BOTS AND TROLLS. I only comment on items that I've actually purchased. I still love my OLED TV's, but don't be fooled: they are 10 bit panels that cannot display Dolby Vision in 12 bit color (currently, there are no 12 bit panels). Hopefully, my next TV will be a 12 bit Micro/Mini LED 4k with an ATSC 3.0 tuner and passive 3D.;;Reviewed in the United States on November 30, 2019;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Finally, a QLED good enough for us spoiled OLED enthusiasts.;;AJ;;;I don't know who the people are who buy a $2,000 TV every year and then bloviate about how much better or worse a TV is than the model year before, but I can tell you that this unit is superb. Sharp, clear, bright display, with inky blacks and good viewing angles. No defects, no banding. Settings galore to customize. With its good wide angle viewing it may actually be an OLED killer, since OLED manufacturers haven't demonstrated that have any idea how to correct the severe OLED burn-in problems and lack of panel longevity. Aside from the extraordinary display quality of this Q80R, the smart TV system is fast, responsive and the 4K optimized video apps are terrific. Highly recommended.;;Reviewed in the United States on May 22, 2019;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Superb TV;;mreg615

I still love my OLED TV's, but don't be fooled: they are 10 bit panels that cannot display Dolby Vision in 12 bit color (currently, there are no 12 bit panels). Hopefully, my next TV will be a 12 bit Micro/Mini LED 4k with an ATSC 3.0 tuner and passive 3D.

Superb TV
I don't know who the people are who buy a $2,000 TV every year and then bloviate about how much better or worse a TV is than the model year before, but I can tell you that this unit is superb. Sharp, clear, bright display, with inky blacks and good viewing angles. No defects, no banding. Settings galore to customize. With its good wide angle viewing it may actually be an OLED killer, since OLED manufacturers haven't demonstrated that have any idea how to correct the severe OLED burn-in problems and lack of panel longevity. Aside from the extraordinary display quality of this Q80R, the smart TV system is fast, responsive and the 4K optimized video apps are terrific. Highly recommended.

Wonderful TV no longer
Bought this last week and just received it yesterday. It has a magnificent picture. We are blown away. The setup was easy and we had everything up and going in no time. We wall mounted ours but didn't use the no gap mount as our studs are wider than the width of the mount. Love the One Connect box - makes it so easy to connect everything up without having to take the TV off the wall. Would definitely recommend the Q90 - equal to if not better than OLED and without the burn in issues. Updated: Sadly I have to update this review and remove three stars due to the terrible Bixby voice control. There is nowhere to turn the thing off and it incessantly cuts in when watching programs and mutes the program while it tries to search for something. I can no longer recommend this TV until this is fixed.

New TV Disappointment- updated
I received the product from UPS around noon with no apparent damage. Immediately followed the installation and setup instructions and when I powered up the TV all that appeared were colored lines. There were also some unusual patterns in various portions of the screen (under the glass). The TV wouldn't provide any setup instructions. I immediately contacted Amazon to return the TV for a replacement. They suggested I first discuss the problem with an "expert" before returning the product, so I asked them to call me. They called back immediately and as I was explaining the problem our call was disconnected. I've not heard back from them. So, I've boxed the unit back up and UPS will pick it up when they deliver the replacement. So far no indication from Amazon as to when I can expect a NEW replacement. I've purchased several Samsung products and have been very happy with them. I will change the overall rating once I receive a new replacement that works. I received a second unit and the box was intact. However, when I turned it on I couldn’t believe I had received a second defective tv. This one had colored lines running down the left side, horizontal lines across the middle, and a black smudge on the upper left corner. I’m done with this model and have requested a refund. I’m now looking to Sony and LG. It appears as though Samsung’s quality control has suffered a setback.

Finally, a QLED good enough for us spoiled OLED enthusiasts.
I own two 65” OLED 4k TV’s and I wanted something larger; but, I wasn’t willing to spend almost $5000 for a 75” OLED that will eventually have burn-in. It took five years of regular use, but unlike image retention which is temporary, one of my OLED’s began to show a very faint dimming of the pixels where bright white channel logos “burned in”: I only noticed it when cleaning the screen I couldn’t remove what I thought was merely a smudge. I must admit, until recently, I’ve always considered QLED’s a literal scam in which the “O” of an OLED TV was replaced by the “Q” which looked very similar (even though the TV’s were completely different technologies). However, the Samsung Q80R is the first LED/LCD television to actually compete (and in some ways beat) my OLED's. There were two main reasons that I never contemplated owning an LED/LCD TV for my large family room: 1: Muddy blacks in dark scenes. 2: Poor image quality when viewed at an angle. With OLED HDTV my guests and I have enjoyed perfect blacks and vivid colors from all seating positions for the past five years, but I wanted a larger screen to help fill the room without spending a fortune. To my surprise, Samsung’s latest Q80R and Q90R (not the Q60 or Q70) offer deep blacks and vivid hues at wide viewing angles with very bright pictures. It actually blew me away to see a good picture on an LCD TV at an 80 degree angle! The special filter that Samsung introduced on the Q80R (and Q90R) is a complete game changer! I was also very impressed by the deep blacks and high contrast ratio on my new Q80R. Given the choice between an 82” Q70R and the 75” Q80R (in the same price range), I’m glad I chose the Q80R: the ULTRA-VIEWING ANGLE feature (not available on the Q70R) is a must have for anyone spoiled by OLED. As for the Q90R, I like the smaller pedestal base but I don’t believe the small increase in picture quality was worth the premium price tag (IMHO). I’m also not a fan of 8k TV’s since there is not a single TV on the the market (which I’m aware of) that even offers an ATSC 3.0 (4k) tuner. When I first set up my Q80R I was very disappointed in the poor picture quality of the default settings and was starting to regret my purchase. It took over a week of tweaking the unusual picture settings, but I can actually confess that I don’t miss the OLED (which is now in the guest bedroom). Unlike other televisions that I’ve calibrated, the numeric settings and scales on the Q80R are very different: for example, the brightness ranges from -5 to 5 (as compared to 0 to 100 for most other brands). This difference is confusing and very unfamiliar. To help, I’ve posted my preferred settings below: I’ve turned off the “auto” picture adjustments because they play havoc with the picture quality. I’ve also turned off the “Contrast Enhancer” for the same reason. I’ve put “Digital Clean View” on the “Auto” setting for OTA and Low for my ROKU and limited the ambient light dimming to a minimum of 20 (out of 50). Back light: 38 Brightness: 2 Contrast: 32 Sharpness: 12 Color: 32 Tint: G8 Gamma 2.2 White Balance: 2 Point Red Gain: -2 Green Gain: 6 Blue Gain: -4 Red Offset: -2 Green Offset: 6 Blue Offset: -4 Color Space Settings: Custom Color Red Red 50 Green 54 Blue 46 These settings look great on all inputs and the built-in ATSC 2.0 tuner. F.Y.I. This TV is very bright and (if not careful) it is prone to having “over bright” whites in which all detail is lost: i.e. mattresses lose their quilted tops and snow loses its shading and texture. This is completely the opposite of the muddy blacks prevalent on most LCD TV’s (which is not a problem on the Q80R). P.S. I gave the smart features a 3/5 stars because I had to disable the annoying "Smart Hub" default. I also gave the remote a 3/5 because it lacks features common on other remotes (like a number pad or picture settings button). Fortunately, I have a Harmony 650 universal remote (which I love). I am not a fan of the very wide leg stance found on most large TV's today. To accommodate my normal size entertainment center, I purchased a "Rfiver Universal Swivel TV Stand Tabletop TV Stand Base": https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07M6114YM/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 On this stand the 75" Q80R is very well supported and I love the swivel feature! As I previously noted, I preferred the Q90R base, but was unwilling to pay a premium price just to get the smaller stand. B.T.W. BEWARE OF UNVERIFIED REVIEWS FROM BOTS AND TROLLS. I only comment on items that I've actually purchased. I still love my OLED TV's, but don't be fooled: they are 10 bit panels that cannot display Dolby Vision in 12 bit color (currently, there are no 12 bit panels). Hopefully, my next TV will be a 12 bit Micro/Mini LED 4k with an ATSC 3.0 tuner and passive 3D.
