I bought the 82 inch....go big or go home. I've seen a few deals on the 77 OLED lately for 4 grand, but this is a better fit for me. 1. It's bigger. 2. It's bigger...lol jk. If big was all that mattered to me I would've gone with the 85" sony 900f or new 850g... 3. FREESYNC or what people are calling VRR and having ALLM (auto low latency mode) made my choice very easy. I play a lot of games. Xbox one X and PS4 PRO....4. reality is oled's have burn in....so as a gamer that's a huge negative/risk you take. 5. Response times on the samsung's are getting close to my monitor's, so you can play shooters and not lose out to lag like you would with other large Sets. 6. Samsung's new game modes avoid crushing blacks too and looks awesome playing horizon zero dawn, tomb raider, and everything else. 7. The panel can do 120hz QHD....this is great for PC gaming/ Xbox one X. 8. having massive Viewing angles ( like those of an OLED) just dont matter to me. I sit in front of my TV, and you should too. 9. Cost. I found a discount on the set, and with Samsung's TV upgrade program I can sell this TV in a few years and still get a nice discount on another set from samsung. I'm pairing the TV with the HN-950 7.1.4 Samsung Dolby Atmos sound system. I'll share more on that once my setup is complete.
Negatives- Big TV means heavy...Like 100 pounds heavy. Huge box made it tricky getting into the basement....but I managed.
I would prefer just google integration. I have an S9+ and ive never used bixby and probably never will....so a little more google integration would be nice. This TV has full array local dimming, but it doesn't have the best picture ever....but im good with that as explained earlier. I'm using this with the HN-950 7.1.4 Samsung Dolby Atmos sound system.
Why didn't I get the Q90R or go 8k? Because I'm not made of money....and the differences are only noticeable if the TV's are side by side. I'd much rather have the 82 inch then pay the same amount and get a smaller "higher end" TV.
What do I want from samsung? An affordable 98 inch set please! Projectors just dont pack the punch for me, and I would go bigger if the price was reasonable. Looking forward to the Wall.
I'll update my review once I've spent some more time with the set. Hope this was helpful!
