    The Samsung QLED q90a will be released in a 43" model.

    I just tested with this image and it does distort the white on black text at the top screen only. I didn't notice a difference on the black on white text. So the issue is real and can be seen in this specific test, but I don't think its something that should sway people from buying this display...

    The Samsung QLED q90a will be released in a 43" model.

    I downloaded the test pattern and my screen is not showing this issue. Honestly though, even if it did, the guy zoomed in on text that is like 1/8" tall. I wouldn't notice at the 3-4' i sit from the screen and it doesn't show during web browsing. Maybe its a clear type/scaling issue? I don't...

    The Samsung QLED q90a will be released in a 43" model.

    I own the 43QN90B, it is 144hz. I almost bought the Gigabyte when it was on sale, but got this instead. I've had it about 3 weeks and I'm pretty happy with it. It is insanely bright and the local dimming is pretty great in my experience. I was also concerned about text with the BGR panel, but I...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    Just noticed this is 699 on amazon. That seems like exceptional value, nothing in the price range comes close. Just waiting to see what the samsung 43qn90b offers before I pull the trigger, but at 1199, it better be a lot better.

    Sony 2021 TV Lineup

    I'm gonna grab one of these his weekend to dick around with and compare to my old samsung ju6500. The demo unit at best buy looked really good in person, very vibrant colors and great contrast. It should be a decent upgrade in all areas except pixel structure. If it ends up sucking, I will...

    2016 Vizio P Series

    From the images he posted, it looks like his chroma test is scaled compared to rtings.com's pixel perfect image. Hard to imagine he could be that dense, but the evidence is pretty damning in my eyes. Posters later in the thread attacking rtings.com's integrity is pretty sad. I've had my eye on...

    Vizio 43" 4k M43-C1

    I had the 43" for a day and it did 1080p120 with some sync issues(random black screen for a second). This is definitely not a suitable display for a main monitor, 4:2:2 on the vizio looks pretty bad compared to 4:2:2 on the samsung. The only good things for this display are the input lag and...

    New Samsung 4k for everyone.

    Try it with chrome, firefox fails this for me also. Pass or fail though you will be able to see the pwm artifacts below 20 backlight.

    New Samsung 4k for everyone.

    Yeah, I can confirm there is indeed 3-4 lines with backlight at 12 and 1 line with backlight at 20(max). So I recalibrated game mode for 100% backlight setting, surprisingly it isn't painfully bright, and left pc mode at 12 for web use. After gaming for a bit I've noticed a big difference in...

    New Samsung 4k for everyone.

    Eyes are fine, thanks though. I'm just trying to help people figure out why they are having a bad experience, there is no need for your insulting comments. These tvs have deep menus and ambiguously named settings, it's easy to miss something that could negatively affect the picture quality.

    New Samsung 4k for everyone.

    ju6500 owner here, I'm not sure what you guys are doing wrong, but game mode doesn't look anywhere near horrible or unusable. In fact in games its indistinguishable from pc mode and on the desktop only certain things show a perceivable difference. Hardforum for example practically identical. I...

    New Samsung 4k for everyone.

    The rtings.com review of 55" model says its has excellent input lag and motion blur, but that size uses an ips panel so the 40" may be completely different. I am also curious about this model, I already have the ju6500, but I would trade 444 support for better motion blur/pixel response. If the...

    Samsung 40" JU6500 too blurry...

    I also have the 40ju6500, and while I think its fine, I can definitely see the blur issues he is having. I think I have just had enough time to get used to it so it doesn't bother me in most of the games I play. There are definitely compromises with these tvs but I think, at least for now, they...

    New Samsung 4k for everyone.

    i restarted my computer today for the first time in a week or so and noticed that it displayed the post screen. anyone else notice this or can confirm that the latest firmware fixed it? ju6500 on ver 1422.

    36" to 44" 4K Roundup

    i use a roccat kone xtd with a pretty high dpi setting. at 4k res it takes less than an inch of movement to cross the screen.

    36" to 44" 4K Roundup

    this is only really an issue if you are frequently switching back and forth to a much faster display. in day to day use its not noticeable. i also definitely feel like the lag in pc mode has been improved over the many updates since that review the 48ms number is from was done.

    In the market for a 4k TV, need advice.

    for those interested, the new sony xbr55x810c is on sale at amazon for $998.00. for movies/tv watching it would be a better choice than the ju6500 due to better contrast and judder-free playback. input lag is slightly worse at 35ish ms in game mode but still pretty good. check the rtings.com...

    In the market for a 4k TV, need advice.

    the 6500 at max brightness is painfully bright. i run mine at 12(20) backlight and about 50% brightness. ive been using it for about 5 months now like this and have never had a problem with eye strain and im at my computer for most of the day. i have pc and game mode calibrated for the same...

    36" to 44" 4K Roundup

    whatever you do, do not trade the sony for a vizio. i had m43 and it is not suitable for monitor use. it is far too blurry. no matter what i did i couldnt get a sharp picture from it. im currently using a ju6500 and even in game mode its a much crisper picture than the vizio.

    New Samsung 4k for everyone.

    so early information ive seen suggests that the new amd cards will not have hdmi at all just displayport, and since our usage of these tvs hinges entirely on that connection, are we going to be locked in to nvidia and do you think they will continue to offer hdmi on future cards? was looking...

    4K 60Hz 4:4:4 HDMI 2.0 TV Database

    there is a thread on both the vizio and the sharp 43" 4k with my impressions of both. despite what customer support may have said i was unable to get 4:4:4 on the sharp and even if it was able the input lag is pretty bad. the vizio has excellent lag but 4:4:4 doesn't work and the desktop looks...

    New Samsung 4k for everyone.

    after a week of using my 40ju6500, i am still loving it and ive adjusted to display nicely. i actually kinda like having a seperate mode for gaming because i can have different contrast/brightness/color settings which may not be ideal for desktop work or browsing. 1080p looks great and the games...

    New Samsung 4k for everyone.

    whats consensus on firmware, my tv has version 1201, are there any reasons to upgrade? Also for TDSlam720, I have the same rocketfish cable and had no issues with it. currently using a 9ft sams club hdmi and it is workin fine also. this is with an msi 970.

    New Samsung 4k for everyone.

    having just setup my 40ju6500 today, i can say that 422 isnt bad on the desktop and with games you wont even notice. its miles better than either the sharp 43" or the vizio 43" as far as clarity and readablity. compared to your ips, it should have much better contrast/blacks and i feel this...

    New Samsung 4k for everyone.

    just got home with the 40ju6500, so far blown away. gettin 4:4:4 at 4k60hz was quick and painless. did a quick calibration for brightness/contrast, backlight is at 10 and i'm not seeing any flickering/eyestrain thus far. also, i had reported in another thread that the sams club 4k hdmi 2 pack...

    New Samsung 4k for everyone.

    so after my bad experiences with the vizio and sharp 43" 4k tvs, i think im gonna pick up a samsung 40ju6500 since the philips is still not available and no other monitor options at this size seem viable (not gonna risk buying the korean monitors). based on the info in this thread the samsung...

    HDMI 2.0 cable speed for 4k 60hz

    i had quite a bit of trouble finding a cable that would work at 4k 60hz. none of the cables i already owned would work and the new 4k 60hz labeled ones i bought at sams club worked either (9ft hdmi 2 pack, sams club brand). the cable that ended up working for me was a rocketfish high speed hdmi...

    Sharp LC43UB30U 4k 43" $599?

    no big deal, i just boxed it back up. too frustrated to deal with it. seems like the samsung is the only viable alternative to the philips monitor for now. it seems odd to me that they are pushing 4k displays but the best source of content for now is pc which so few support fully. the sharp...

    Sharp LC43UB30U 4k 43" $599?

    my guess is it does 4:2:0 at 4k60hz and 4:2:2 at 4k30hz. i wish i spoke to the person you did slippinjimmy. the lady i spoke to had no idea about anything. this is from the supposed dedicated aquos member support line.

    Sharp LC43UB30U 4k 43" $599?

    well i just finished with tech support and they were utterly useless. the lady told me it doesnt support 4k at from a computer only netflix. this is after she had to talk to someone smarter and call me back. i think its doing 444 at 4k30hz. the test image is pretty clear, certainly better than...

    Sharp LC43UB30U 4k 43" $599?

    well the color settings come back if i switch to 1080p but at 4k they disappear. it wont accept rgb with hdmi full, just reverts back to 444 and limited dynamic range. ive been thru the menu top to bottom and read the manual front to back and havent found a setting for uhd color or similar. im...

    Sharp LC43UB30U 4k 43" $599?

    picture quality is pretty great so far, i haven't finished calibrating since its not in 444 yet. its definitely better than the vizio was at least sharpness wise. Input lag looks bad though. in game mode its 70ms slower than my lg and pc mode is 130ms slower. this is at 1080p though which might...

    Sharp LC43UB30U 4k 43" $599?

    actually the manual just says to plug the cable in, beyond that there is no mention of settings to use. im gonna reinstall drivers to see if i can get my nvidia control panel options back.

    Sharp LC43UB30U 4k 43" $599?

    trying to find a setting to turn it on, but there doesnt seem to be anything. might try calling tech support. it seems odd that color controls are gone from nvidia control panel. the rgb/444 and hdmi black level boxes are just gone.

    Sharp LC43UB30U 4k 43" $599?

    ok guys, i've got the tv. can't get 444 working at all, but it is displaying 4k@60hz. in game mode the lag seems pretty good and i did a quik test of some dark souls and parrying didn't seem off. for some reason color adjustment just disappeared from nvidia control panel. there doesn't seem to...

    Sharp LC43UB30U 4k 43" $599?

    thats great news, i will definitely get this tomorrow then. i think as long as its not worse that my old lg 32ln5300 which is about 25-30ms, then it will be a keeper. let me know what you guys want me to test it with and i will do my best to provide results.

    Sharp LC43UB30U 4k 43" $599?

    i've never encountered a restock fee for returns at best buy. i've found the sharp 43" in stock at a nearby best buy and i may make the trip tomorrow to grab it. i will definitely be giving it a thorough testing to see if its usable though i don't have any way to accurately test input lag.i will...
