There doesn't seem to be a very clear answer as to whether it's fully HDMI 2.1 compliant either?

I do want (and probably need) a new TV, but if 2020 has major upgrades in store than I'd probably consider waiting.

Might be overthinking it, Rtings and others still have the B9 as the best TV on the market. Just want to cover all bases before making any decisions.
There are no HDMI 2.1 sources yet. The language is vague as it probably supports some HDMI 2.1 features but not the entire feature set. IMO, there is no such thing as future proofing (just a selling tactic). If 2.1 is important, why not wait for a future tv that will fully support 2.1 bandwith.

Actually, I'd hold off.

According to a review of the LG SM9000, the alpha 7 can only handle 4K /120 at SDR and not HDR, which is an immediate deal breaker for me. As the B9 also uses that same processor

Quote:
SM90 is not equipped with LG's most advanced Alpha 9 processor like the OLED models but rather a second generation Alpha 7 that has less processing power (unlike Alpha 9, it cannot do 4K HDR at 120Hz) and fewer features. On the other hand Alpha 9's additional capabilities are typically found in those picture enhancement algorithms that we often prefer to deactivate so the less capable processor may not be a dealbreaker.
All I can say is ROBERT:

HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm a big fan of LG's latest a9 Gen 2 video processing that comes in all LG 2019 OLED TVs, C9, E9 and W9 series OLED TVs. The B9 uses the less powerful a7 processor.

I'm updating my mainfloor tv to a sony 900f. I considered jumping right to the 950G but the differences aren't worth the price jump for me.

Thought about finally going 4k, but don't feel like fighting crowds of idiot zombies that fight over 4kTVs just to watch DVDs and mediocre quality streaming video on their 4kTVs. If the herd has died down and there's some left, I just might.

I'm going with the Samsung QN75Q80RAFXZA for my living room, I was going to get the Samsung QN82Q70RAFXZA, but decided to go with the slightly smaller tv for the better specs the QN75Q80RAFXZA has over the QN82Q70RAFXZA.

You ought to consider the 75" Sony 900F. It's only $1999 for the 75 inch and is in a lot of ways superior to the Samsung.

Congrats. Good decision going for the Q80R. Hoping I will be in position to step up in size in the next 2 yrs. Loving the 65" Q90R I got last month.

Get a TCL instead, the cheap LGs are pieces of crap. The TCL is actually good for the price

I already pulled the trigger on the Samsung, I did a lot research on the Q80R and I think I will be more then happy with it. But thank you for letting me know about the Sony, I will definitely keep that in mind, if I need another tv for the bedroom.

Thanks, I know Iíll be happy with it. Good choice on the Q90 as well, the only downside I heard on the Q80 and Q90 are the blacks are crushed, are the blacks on yours bad?

I picked up my new Panasonic GX800 Series 4K TV just under a week ago and have been enjoying it so far but I do have a question about screen brightness when it comes to movies. The TV has an ambient brightness option which adjusts the screen brightness to the room. Would I be better to turn it off for movies or is it better left on?

While I have heard that it may crush blacks in certain scenes, I have yet to encounter this problem per se. My main reasons for choosing the Q90 was my need for a bright display and no worries about burn in. While color accuracy is a priority for many, I liked the colors of the Samsung sets above other more color accurate sets. The punchy picture did it for me. I have not regretted my decision.

Thanks, that make me feel better about my decision. I like the guarantee from Samsung about no burn in their sets.

No Dolby Vision on Samsung TVs is kind of a deal breaker to me unfortunately.
Not buying a TV brand where they only support a pointless HDR format called HDR10+.

HDR10 on a high spec'd TV >>>>>>> low/mid TV with Dolby Vision.


Watching Dolby Vision on a C8 oled as I write those

Having done some research myself, it's hard to find any real advantages of DV over HDR10+. The fact that one has to do a scene by scene analysis pausing just to find a said advantage is not good enough for me to write off a great display.

After reading numerous reviews and articles on this subject I have to agree with you,.
