    Price match with TGG and then save 5% with gift cards :D

    • Sorry for this noob question but how do you save 5% using gift cards? Which gift cards are you talking about?

  • +26

    That's alot of specs sir.

    • -5

      Yep, but I only need to read QLED to know that it's not for me. OLED is the only way to go.

      • +2

        This is the way!

      • -1

        ULED and QLED proven to be much better overall than OLED. Welcome to 2021

        • Still LCD-based technology, which is inheritantly inferior.

          • @Mondorock: Agree.
            The only real competition will be micro LED.

      • Cool, so you have a 85inch Oled?

  • +1

    was $2842 at appliance central recently & only up to $200 cheaper than other retailers, can probably do better negotiating in-store

  • awaiting q70! at 1999 think thats a better sweet spot

    • +1

      what size?

      • That was the 75” I reckon.

  • Ginormous deal, literally! Does it have hdmi 2.1 though?

    • can't seem to find 2.1 on the spec sheet, only 2.0

    • +18

      Nope. 60hz, no VRR, edge-lit instead of local dimming, no QLED VA panel. No Dolby Vision.

      HGIG, ALLM, QFT, VRR arent common HDMI 2.1 specs, and it seems that VRR is only working on Samsung and LG. Sony promises to get it working soon, but, it's not obvious how.

      The Q60T/Q70T would also be blurry with sport content or streaming, HDR would be dim, and the narrow angle would make couch watching difficult for the left/right seats. They get around this distortion with a wide angle filter on the more expensive models.

      It's average. If OLED and HDR didn't exist, it would be a strong TV, but they stripped out features to bring it into a cheap price bracket. The Q60T/Q70T and the Q80T are 6/10 and 7/10 TV's in a crowded market.

      And if you were going to get a budget 85", the Hisense/TCL are strong contenders too.

      I'd probably check the Sony X85J sales and price before jumping on this as it's similar in that budget bracket.

      The Q60T does have eARC, BFI and 4k 10ms latency, but you don't get the blur reduction from a faster panel and LD/QLED features for bright images and strong HDR.

      It's probably about the same or worse than the alternative Sony X80J or X85J because the upsampling chipset X-Reality /X1 HDR chipset is better on the Sony. HDR is a crapshoot without local dimming or native contrast boosting, but Dolby Vision should be an improvement, even with ~400 nit capacity.

      The LG Nano86/91 is arguably similar, but it's IPS vs VA and the LG has different problems in their lacklustre Nano "Not-QLED" range.

      • Edge lit tvs need to die a severe death. Friend of mine got a Nanocell LG with so much blooming and IPS glow it was ridiculous , swapped for a Samsung QN85 and is much happier

        • Q60's / Nanocells - are no good TBH

      • @toliman this is such a comprehensive and meaningful review - thank you!

        I like the Sony 2021 lineup due to Google TV integration, but was wondering how can we tell if Motion 200 is the same as 200 Hz?

        I read the Samsung Q80A is a 100 Clear Motion, so you are advising it's 60Hz and I actually can't find that stated on the manufacturer's website/spec sheets - but only after reading reviews I find that 100 CMR doesnt mean 100 Hz….

        Is there an easy way to find out the native Hz?

        Which model Hisense or TCL do you suggest investigating (100 Hz, full array local dimming, eArc)?

        • Q8 if any stock left

  • +2

    Also just had a look at Samsung EPP store - they are selling it for $2,879.00 with free shipping

    • Does lg or Sony have an epp? I'm looking for an oled :)

    • Thanks for checking do they happen to have the 85inch qn85a on the store as well?

      • +3

        QN85A is $4,679.00

        • +1

          Thanks for checking

    • In other words, a very average model.
      I would rather sacrifice size for a better picture.

    If you're in Syndey - $2750: https://tinyurl.com/4nwunx8x

      Ahhhh Cindy…..

      Good times….

      • Such a beauriful sweet name

    • Plus you can pricematch with appliances online plus a cheap Samsung soundbar to get $600 cashback (assuming the deal is still on?).

  • Not directly related to this post but just wondering if anyone managed to get their Q70A 75inch sale order fulfilled by JB from about a month and half ago?

    Following is the OZbargain deal from July:

    TIA

  • Is it just me or are bigger 70"+ TV's getting considerably cheaper? I've been noticing loads of these new 85" TV's from various brands selling anywhere from $2k to $3.5k, which is just insane to me. I could have sworn that a few years ago 85"+ TV's were almost $10k. Does anyone know why this is happening?

    • +3

      economies of scale and increased efficiency in producing such large panels I guess.

    • As time moves forward the technology gets cheaper due to high demand and supply.. economics

  • Why do TV sets still come with analog tuners? lol

    • probably more cost efficient to build one board for the whole world, a lot of places are still very far from digital reception.

      • Well, you can't build one board for the whole world because the world's divided into PAL and NTSC. Most PAL countries (Europe) have switched to digital.

    • +2

      Many hotels still use analog signal distribution systems to pump Foxtel channels into rooms (and they buy a lot of TVs)

  • This is a low end model, there was a deal for 85inch x900h for about 3200 after cash rewards if you price matched Good Guys with Sony

  • +6

    Whilst being Samsung "Qled" please keep in mind this panel isn't that great unless you desperately want an 85inch. No HDMI 2.1, no full array dimming, only 100hz refresh rate achieved through software (actual refresh rate is 60hz I believe), no Dolby Vision and the list goes on. If you really want an 85 inch and you like Samsung OS then sure go for it, but if you can settle for a 75inch at the same/cheaper price there are better options or alternatively spend more for a better TV. I was recently in the same position and ended up buying a 85inch Sony x900h - I have been very happy with it.

    • Any recommendations for 75 inch TVs at this price point? Interested

      • +5

        QN90A is probably the king, then you step down to the LG C1, Sony A80J OLED

        or X90J / QN85A for the best big budget TV.

        The differences between the Q90A, C1 and A80J are going to depend on the room and your budget / expectations. The 77" A80J/C1 are going to be a different budget to the QLED 75"+ TV's

        The 85" QN85A is better than the 75" QN85A, and it's similar to the 75" QN90A features (and price) and it's probably the best compromise of price and size.

        A lot of the mid-range TV's are going to be hard to sort between, because the quality features are removed, but the price stays the same.

        Which is why the Hisense U8G is capable against the mid-range and despite the lead that LG, Sony and Samsung have, it's worth considering as long as you know it's got issues. From there, you just choose what you can compromise on.

        do you want a cheap 75", or something you won't swap for 4-5 years.

        If you want gaming, LG then Samsung. Maybe hisense. If Sony ever gets their VRR update, It would be an option. There is no guarantee that Sony will honour their VRR marketing, keep it in mind when international warranty periods expire and VRR hasn't arrived in a working state, or it only works at 1080p.

        A lot of the current HDMI 2.1 features are gaming oriented, but most people will only use eARC, not 8K60 or ALLM, HGIG or VRR.

        For Movies, Sony OLED, LG OLED, Samsung Neo QLED, and then it gets complicated. Anything over 500-600 nits for HDR is bright enough for a dark room, but 900-1200 is needed against sunlight or downlight brightness.

        75" HDR needs a lot of local dimming zones to work well without blooming or blurring, so it's a mixed bag with LED and QLED. So, the midrange of 75" models e.g. Q60A/Q70A/Q80A and NANO86/90/91 and the TU8000/X70J/X80J/X85J etcetera are on par with the TCL and Hisense models. The difference is going to depend on how/where you compromise.

      • +1

        It will likely be hard to find a 75 inch OLED at this price so I won't bother suggesting any. Therefore for a similar price(if not a bit more) the TV's worth considering in my opinion are:

        -Samsung QN90A
        -Samsung QN85A Neo
        -Sony X90J 75 Inch (updated 2021 version of the x900h)
        -Sony x9000H 75 Inch (last years model but a good TV that can likely be found cheaper)

        Some things to consider:
        -Any Samsung model lower than those won't be great
        -Most non-OLED LG TV's aren't great
        -Operating systems make a difference. Having owned both a Sony and Samsung, I much prefer Android TV compared to Samsungs Tizen OS

    BillyGuyatts still lives?

  • I watched this on eBay recently, got an offer from Samsung for AU $2,879.10.

    Can definitely get it cheaper than this price above in store.

  • +2

    Samsung have a cashback offer on this TV when you buy a soundbar (till 30/09/21).
    Play your cards right and either get a really nice soundbar for cheaper, or get the cheapest soundbar purely to qualify for the cashback- then on-sell the soundbar.

    https://www.samsung.com/au/offer/home-theatre-cashback/

    • +3

      For instance, the Samsung A450 soundbar is currently selling at same retailer for $260.
      https://www.billyguyatts.com.au/samsung-2-1ch-a-series-sound...

      That's LESS than the cashback you'll get by buying them both at the same time. Net money in your pocket… plus whatever you can get for the soundbar on resale.

      • PLUS, just looking quickly at that soundbar page, there seems to be a $250 giftcard offer as well.
        Haven't read the terms but there seems to be a little cash to be had there as well?

        • +1

          Hmm hangon… Billy Gyatts may not be a "participating retailer".

          Seriously consider matchpricing from Billy's to one of the retailers to take advantage of the offer.

          JB's should match both of those prices, and then go nuts on the cashback :).

    I found when replacing my faulty 75" Hisense QLED that I was better off buying a smaller TV & moving it closer to my seating position. I saw the same number of pixels on all 4K TV's, meaning for the price of this TV I could have a 65" 120hz, maybe OLED, VRR, HDMI 2.1, full array dimming, better HDR, 12bit colour panel etc. And if I wasn't interested in these things, I could've just pocketed the difference.
    I guess this TV is for a huge room, full of people?

    • +2

      Yeah if your space is really big, moving your couch so close to the TV can make the entire room look awkward.

    • -1

      You sound like you're trying to convince yourself while convincing everyone else. I would take a bigger tv any day before moving my couch closer.

  • Nah - I can tell you bigger is better.

  • So Im confused. Does it have HDMI 2.1 and true 100Hz?

    • Nope

      It does have eARC and 4K60, and some missing Samsung features, but it's a Q60A. Reviews are going to be 6/10 for a clear reason - this is a budget model in the midrange. It is missing features.

      it's just that it's an edge-lit QLED, and using a baseline/budget QLED is going to be blurry for Sports and Games, and hard to get HDR brightness.

      If you never open Netflix/Disney+, and only watch TV news, you are getting a great deal. But, if you can discern or compare to other TVs that are cheaper and the same size, they will have a better image quality.

      • Free to air tv would look horrible on screen this size

        • It doesnt some sports bars have it it looks fine.

  • -1

    The obsession with HDMI 2.1 and 120hz on base model TVs is fever pitch. We might have to start including it in deal titles.

    • Yeah that sounds good maybe mods can add it as a new product tag

      Would make searching and cataloguing much easier
