Best buy has the 55" on sale for 799 - it supports 1440p@ 120hz and freesync so could be a good candidate for a big screen gaming monitor

Haha not for desktop. 2nd living room for consoles.


I used a 42" Panansonic 1080P LED backlit (was one of the first "high end" LED sets when it was released back in 2010) sitting about 6 ft from it (I have 20/15 and 20/10 vision) for about 7 years with my recliner desk I built. It is great for someone with chronic pain. The bad thing was I was limited to wanting things like better response, input lag, VRR etc...Things that these sets give you in SPADES!!!

I am getting 65" (or the Q65FN not sure which yet) when I move next month...I am going to be rebulding a recliner desk but also have a folding table that is the perfect height to use as a desk with my comfy Serta office chair..I will just set my table up as close/far as I want and go to town on it. I cannot wait! These sets are why I own dual Radeon VIIs

Jesus, what an amazing deal, 65" for $900 that does 1080p / 1440p @ 120hz .... insane. Such a great gaming display.

I, as well as others here on HardOCP have the 55" for desktop. It's amazing.

I have the 75" version of this TV and while it is a decent TV, I wish I had shelled out for the Q series.. The gamma gradient from the backlight is very uneven, only really noticeable on an all white screen (like snow) but it annoys me.

I have 75" had it for maybe 3 weeks, I spent 2k with warranty, I might go get q6f 65 or 75" for same price,

plus my 75" makes cracking sounds for past week and half and I don't like for price I've paid.

You sure it's electrical that's making that sound? Might be an overly tight plastic housing screws that's moving with heat. Maybe loosening some case screws a turn or 2 may help

I thought that too, rtings.com said same thing, but it's not plastic sound, it does it when I turn it on and off, it didn't do it when I first got it, over time it seems get more and more. Maybe me, I'm I willing out 2300 on line? Not with having 45 day return with bestbuy, I've spent 3500 there, lol

Yeah, I'm glad I have 45 day return policy and not normal 14 day, I looked up, it's been 28 days, I seen my bestbuy has q6f 65" $1,199 5 year warranty $249.99 or 55" q8f full backlight array $1,299 5 year warranty $299.99. Really I thought about Vizo P 65" full-array for $999 rtings said it's good gaming TV, just no freesync, the Q6F was really good TV, despite no full-array

I have full array on my High End Vizio, ... I cannot tell much of a difference over my NU8000. Both look amazing.

If you're just a TV guy with no gaming, you don't need the 120hz ... if you're a gamer. 120hz is a game changer. More so than any other feature in my book.

No I game lol, I picked up Radeon VII have freesync on PC and xbox, everything's butter smooth :)

My 75" has 1080p 120hz, 1440p 120hz, 4k 60hz.

I thought going 10" smaller saving 1k and with 75" making weird sounds, and I know ryzen 3000 series is around corner, I was gonna grab 2600x or 2700x and x470 and some ddr4 3200, call it day lol

I had best buy price match B&H for the 75" Q9FN for 3299.99 with 10% cash back for getting their card (will pay in full, not worried about redonkulous APR). So not too far from a free PS4 pro on top. The Q8 and 9 have dimming zones. I understand a whole different ball of wax than topic, but still it's the cheapest I've seen it not from ebay if we're allowed to venturing from OP a lil to talk about Samsung TVs as gaming displays. The 2018 NU's and Q's all have this 120Hz @1440p and VRR. I do wish my desktop Sony 4k 43" had these features!

If anyone has Costco, their prices are th same and include a 3 yr Square Trade warranty...the SQ costs $100 for 3 yes, and Costco gives you a $100 instant discount on the TV making it *free*..


..You get 2 yr no questions asked warranty from Costco, and then 3 yr from SQ so that is a huge deal IMO vs Best Buy. Even if you.have to spend $60 on a Costco membership it's a better deal (look on Groupon for discounts on Costco membership yo make it cheaper then $60).

Yes

1080p @ 60Hz @ 4:4:4 : Yes
1080p @ 120Hz : Yes (native support)
1440p @ 60Hz : No
1440p @ 120 Hz : Yes (native support)
4k @ 60Hz: Yes
4k @ 60Hz @ 4:4:4: Yes
4k @ 120Hz : No
8k @ 24 Hz : No
8k @ 60 Hz: No

States that 49" is not the same and cant do 1440 120hz though. Just like the 50" from the nu8000 model. So 55" and above only on either models.
