    I agree, who watches TV at 20 degree angles?

    Viewing angles on my Q80T is definitely not an issue.

    Why not pay the extra R5000 for the CX?

    It offers nothing extra other than better black frame insertion and you loose DTS X along with the TV using the 40Gbps HDMI 2.1 instead of 48Gbps. No idea if that will actually have any issues in the future but I believe the C1 or their new series is pretty much the same as the CX?

    I want to try using it with my PC but I think the size is going to put me off. There is also something mystical about ultrawide that I don't necessarily want to give up.

    But probably on saterday for R20k or so. Will make a post in the marketplace if it comes to that.

    I have a Samsung Q900R VA panel in the theater room and a Q80 (I think) in the living room. Our study also sports an older 2018 Samsung VA TV (Q6f).

    I was worried about the same thing as you regarding VA panels and viewing angles when I bought my first QLED. I'm not even the slightest bit concerned anymore. I've driven myself insane walking from Side to side looking for brightness and color shifts and could not pick anything up until I walk to an unreasonable angle where nobody would even be able to see a picture anyway. It really is a non issue for me. Granted, all the rooms with these TV's are able to be relatively darkend or almost completely blacked out so maybe that helps. But even in daytime with the curtains opened, it's never been an issue for me. The Qled technology has matured enough to make this a non issue and I think most people with concerns of this are believing in myths from a decade ago.

    Granted, with some fancy technology and measurement instruments you could completely prove me wrong and throw algorithms and graphs at me, but to me the user experience is what counts. And if my eye can not see a significant impact and I need measurement tools to tell me there some color shift, then it basically means my viewing experience and my enjoyment of the TV are not affected. Like I said, I've walked from side to side and driven myself nuts doing so.

    Go for the QLED And enjoy.
    Thanks, man for your great input. I gotta give QLED a proper go then

    The quick question was there any improvements from Q60 to Q80 that you experience this? Just much nicer features, picture quality and HDMI 2.1?

    Gotta be in a market sometime in June

    I assume you mean between my q6f and the Q80?

    Q80 has much better local dimming meaning less blooming. Deeper blacks.

    In 2020 models As far as I know anything below Q80T doesn't have local dimming.
    I would personally not go for anything without local dimming. It really does make a large impact especially on HDR Content.

    Yes, 2018 models had a different naming scheme.

    In some markets it was the Q6fn, in others just the "f". It's becoming quite difficult to keep up with any of these model names.

    I had a hell of a tough time confirming specs when I bought the Q900R. There were 2 versions of it, one released in 2018 without HDMI 2.1, and another identically named model in 2019 with HDMI 2.1. on top of that, they came out with 2 different OneConnect boxes also (again with and without Hdmi2.1 support). The local sales guys at the retailer had no idea what was actually in the box. I specifically wanted the unit with HDMI 2.1 naturally.

    All worked out in the end but what a pain it was to confirm anything.
