It will be interesting to see if the zone count of 480 is stretched to cover a 98" screen.

Best value is probably the 82". Which is only 9999 as opposed to the 85 that is 14999.

Thems 3 expensive inches right there - $1667 each

On a more serious note, I'll be interested to see whether Samsung extends the 4000cd/m2 peak brightness capability of the their Flagship 8K QLED offering down through the entire line-up of sizes they are offering in 2019...

Samsung has it for pre-order, but it’s not available as part of the Samsung Upgrade program. That’s a little disappointing. Being able to pay the cost over 36 months with an upgrade option after 24 months would make the cost a little more easy to stomach.

So if im reading this right there isn't really a new 8K lineup this year. Just the current Q900 from October but with more sizes? Has there been any word on the 2.1 connect box?

I read a month ago that there's a physical limitation of the higher nits in smaller sizes. The 65" cannot do 4000 in its current tech. I don't recall if the 75 is capable. There's a problem with heat.

God willing, at least the 75” and 65” will be in the price range that I’m willing to spend later this year.

Wowzers!!!! I'm excited at this current prices even though I still can't afford any of them!

I remember when OLEDs were super expensive and then in a couple years people were able to purchase 65in screens

These 8k TVs will do to 4k TVs what 1080p did to 720p tvs and drive their prices down and eventually the 8K TVs will come down to current prices of 4K TVs

If I'm buying an 8k TV, I know I wouldn't want to buy any thing starting at at least 80 inch

Maybe Samsung has figured out a solution. Wonder how it compares with Q9fn?

The 75 can do 4000. Its been measured in quite a few reviews but only Standard/dynamic mode. In movie mode we have had measurements of anything from 1600 to 2300 for the 75 inch version. I honestly do wonder if power management and running a screen that bright is going to be an issue of going even higher. The 10000 nit Sony prototype for example im fairly certain was running in a dynamic mode but I do wonder with normal FALD LCD's if pushing that brightness even higher is going to be an issue especially with smaller sizes.


Also an issue that I personally see is just eye strain. Iv been watching quite a few HDR movies and shows on the Q900 with the Standard HDR mode to get the most peak brightness out of it and some parts are just eye squintingly bright to the point that you feel like you need to pour some eyedrops in lol. Its only small peaks like muzzle flashes or explosions. Its very impactful but it also makes me wonder what a 10000 nit peak highlight would be like and the impact on our eyes.

Theres a replacement 2.1 connect box this year coming that will do 8K @ 60. I think its fairly certain at this point that its coming considering the Q900R seems to be the top 8K range still so it would make sense for all the sizes to get the 2.1 box if there continuing this as there flagship 8K.

Are these new 8k screens do VRR/Freesync? If so, is the range better than on Q9FN?

Does the 75 have the giant OCB like the 85"? The 65 has the smaller ocb like the Q9FN.

According to a new article by flapanels, the 2019 8k lineup is not exactly the same as the 2018 Q900R.

Perhaps Samsung has revived (or improved) the 'sparkling' LCD technology they showed off last year at CES - the off-angle viewing performance was impressive (better than IPS)...

Noted re: naming and making the edit... Sorry 'bout that.

Viewing angles are incredibly, hugely improved over an VA LCD I've seen before. Basically no longer an issue. I have a video clip to share showing that, will upload it shortly, I'm sure there are others.

Where there any noticible picture quality differences Mark compared to the Q900. I still have a month and a half left on my 100 day thing from Samsung so have the option to return up till then. Just wondering if there's any really noticible picture quality differences compared to the Q900 as off axis viewing isn't an issue for me as I sit straight on so that wouldn't be a reason for me to send it back and wait for these.

Off axis viewing is phenomenal, especially side by side with the Q9.
