    Love this TV

    I am a big fan of Samsung TV's. My most recent one was a 64" plasma. I absolutely LOVE that TV, but I wanted to get into 4k and wanted something bigger. When I saw the 82" Q8 QLED I knew I had to have it. Once mounted on the wall I was in love. This TV has a spectacular picture. Out of the box, using the Movie picture mode the colors are bright and vibrant and life-like. I can't wait to see how it looks once calibrated. One thing I just discovered is that the TV has a great feature where when you play a 4k HDR disc, it automatically changes the blacklight and contrast settings to take advantage of the expanded color gamut possible. When you go back to watching regular TV or a non-HDR disc the TV's settings will go back to what they were previously. You don't have to worry about changing your settings back and forth between HDR and non-HDR. Very cool. I briefly tried the Sony 85" X900F and although that TV also had a very good picture, the screen on the Samsung is MUCH better at dealing with glare. In my living room I have windows opposite of the TV that cast glare on the screen. With the Sony the glare was so bad that it made the TV unwatchable on a sunny afternoon. With the Samsung the glare is still there but it is much less noticeable. If you have a bright room then this is the TV for you. About the only drawback I have found is that, just like all LCD TV's, it sucks with motion blur. Sure you can turn on the motion settings but I HATE the soap opera look.

    Very happy with this TV so far. Produces great picture for movies, video games and live streaming sports. Works especially well with the Xbox One. Sound quality is better than I expected from just the TV speakers, though I will still be buying a separate speaker system. Picture provides good contrast and the screen is minimally affected by reflections. Local dimming could be better, but is still solid. Very little motion blur, good response times. Input lag is virtually nonexistent. I bought the 82" version, so recommend wall mounting for that size if you have the space. Also recommend checking out suggested calibration settings from a professional site to see if you like it better than the defaults.

    Horrible with fast motion

    This TV was big but it does NOT handle fast motion at all! Very blurry and pixelated watching football games. Also very dark on the movie setting which is the only setting that handles small amounts of motion, and not very well. The colors are also muddy and not crisp and clear. We are Elite Bestbuy rewards member and had 45 days to decide if we wanted to exchange this TV, it only look us 5 days to place an exchange order. Our exchanged TV is a smaller but also more affordable LG OLED C8 65 Inch and it handles the motion perfectly right out of the box. We get more accurate and deep saturated colors with amazing contrast as well from the LG. My advice is skip this Samsung Q8F. Which is painful to say because we are usually big Samsung fans and own a 6 year old Samsung plasma that we still love and has better picture quality than this Q8F.

    Love this TV. Thank goodness we went with a large TV because of the size of our family room (24x24)...this TV looks smaller than it really is, but perfect for the space. It shows a clear picture and comes with a lot of bells and whistles. We got a great deal and it's worth every penny.

    I’ve owned quite a few Samsung TV’s among others as well. I can honestly say that thus far this is the finest TV my wife and I have ever owned. Absolutely a fine picture and when you hook up a 4K Blu-Ray player to it, along with a 4K Blu-Ray Dvd, the picture gets even better! For sure it’s one of the best TV’s available today.

    I can’t rave enough about this tv. I was initially a little concerned about some pretty rough motion blur, but did some research and made some settings adjustments. The tv is beautiful and does great by itself with upscaling even older movies. Really excited to see more and more 4K content be available

    Quality of image is phenomenal, as expected from this model. Interface is clunky but usable. Ambient mode is not a reason to buy this tv, good idea but buggy and cannot display but only a few of my own images unless I have a Samsung Phone. Disappointed in this feature.

    Excellent picture quality went to the movies and was very angry paying 20$ to see a terrible picture quality. the Samsung Q8F series 4KUHD with HDR has a better picture quality than the movies. Worth the extra money when you see the picture quality

    So far so good...little blur with football and hockey games. Seems to have trouble to keeping up with the motion. Not sure if its a DirecTV issue with the box or the TV not being able to keep up. The picture is clear and bright.

    The color is rich and the motion is realistic it’s scary to watch action movies sometimes lol. Love the build of it without the one connect box and it’s an easy setup out the box. A must buy if you in the market for a great QLED TV
