    Don’t buy any Samsung product because have the worst customer service



  3. Coolhand Lippo on September 18, 2021 at 12:01 am

    But the remote absolutely sucks. I HATE it. Whoever made it is an idiot & has never used one. It’s ALL FKD UP.



  4. Fulgore on September 18, 2021 at 12:01 am

    Will SAMSUNG THE TERRACE have the 2.1 hdmi with this update? Or do you know if Samsung will produce an hdmi 2.1 version of the terrace? Thank you in advance



  5. D T on September 18, 2021 at 12:02 am

    Don’t buy a samsung TV! They don’t support dst audio codec resulting in the majority of your movies being muted and without sound when you try to watch them through an external HD! An incredible shame



  6. Justin Powell on September 18, 2021 at 12:02 am

    Just found out about this website and their honest reviews, I appreciate it guys. Currently shopping a whole new apartment



  7. Sus on September 18, 2021 at 12:03 am

    Is there a noticeable difference between q60t and q70t apart from the specs? I’m not a gamer – will I notice the hz (60 vs 120) difference in movies and sports and is the more powerful processor in q70t noticeably better for an average consumer? Will I gain any function of hdmi 2.1 other than the next gen console which I’m not intending to use. Help me decide, please! Thank you!



  8. Henry Esparza on September 18, 2021 at 12:03 am

    I absolutely hate our tu8000 i love our LG oled, our samsung Qled 80
    is decent



  9. misterb1080 on September 18, 2021 at 12:04 am

    Thank you for being unbiased it is important to us buyers. 👍



  10. Surya G on September 18, 2021 at 12:06 am

    Hi there is tu8500



  11. ABN on September 18, 2021 at 12:06 am

    Tu8000 65" doesn’t get bright enough!!!



  12. Nick on September 18, 2021 at 12:08 am

    Is the Q90T worth $300 more then the Q80T?



  13. Don on September 18, 2021 at 12:09 am

    What’s with the metal?



  14. David Brewer on September 18, 2021 at 12:11 am

    Just returned the Q70T. It was total shit. Ghosting at high speed movements. Back light bleed. Terrible wireless connection. Thinking about going with the tu8000. Looks pretty dang good on display at best buy



  15. CFL-Tech on September 18, 2021 at 12:11 am

    The Best Buy specs on their site says the TU-8000 is direct lit. 🤔



  16. Eyedeas Never Die on September 18, 2021 at 12:13 am

    Dont suppose anybody here knows if the tu8500 is better than the tu8000, or is this just pure Samsung marketing talk and the tu8500 ‘duel LED’ is just B.S



  17. Mark Harris on September 18, 2021 at 12:15 am

    on the TU7000 model, can the feet be moved inward ? my tv stand is not quite long enough. or can I use a pedestal stand bracket on the back ? I don’t want to wall mount it. thanks !



  18. Surya G on September 18, 2021 at 12:16 am

    Tu85 review please.



  19. Fulgore on September 18, 2021 at 12:20 am

    Will SAMSUNG THE TERRACE have the 2.1 hdmi with this update? Or do you know if Samsung will produce an hdmi 2.1 version of the terrace? Thank you in advance



  20. Banzai on September 18, 2021 at 12:21 am

    I was set on the Q80T, by now I think I’ll either wait for the LG 77CX to drop in price, or just save some more and get the upcoming C1 LG. I’m allergic to blooming



  21. Andrei Sison on September 18, 2021 at 12:22 am

    Need a TV for my bedroom good for movies and occasional gaming. Want a 60-65 inch that I can mount, and want one that has sharp colors. Which one should I buy?



  22. Quan Le on September 18, 2021 at 12:23 am

    How about tu850d? Same price with tu8000



  23. Lisa W on September 18, 2021 at 12:25 am

    Thanks for the video very informative. What other brand is similar to the Q90t that’s in a 43 inch or 50? Don’t want a 55 inch for a bedroom why would they make the better tv that large.



  24. Tedy Djajawinata on September 18, 2021 at 12:29 am

    Many thanks for the video! In my opinion, buy the highest end model in the category of your choice. In many cases, the highest end model of one category is better than the entry level model of the next higher category. I’ve been using TU8500, the Dual LED TV that’s better than TU8000 and not covered in this review, for gaming with my PS4 Pro. So far I’m very satisfied and glad that I didn’t choose Q60T, the entry level QLED that is significantly more expensive, but doesn’t perform better for gaming, compared to TU8500.



  25. Vince Ferraccioli on September 18, 2021 at 12:29 am

    Is the Q90t $600 dollars better than the Q80T



  26. James William on September 18, 2021 at 12:31 am

    molto bellla



  27. m torrez on September 18, 2021 at 12:32 am

    People are doing research on a Q 90 t and found out that it has low local dimming only at 100 local dimming and having so much issue with blooming Samsung dint say anything last year was better q90r Samsung going cheap on 2020 tv
    U pay a lot of money for tv with 100 local dimming zone with cause blooming issues



  28. Ryan Schwinghammer on September 18, 2021 at 12:34 am

    75” TU8000 for $1000. That’s a hell of a steal right now. I’m going with that.



  29. Bill Hubbard on September 18, 2021 at 12:37 am

    You know Samsung talks all this talk about HDR10+ but that’s not even supported by most platforms or movies. I mean HDR10+ right now is on a TV I have and it doesn’t seem to be supported by anything.. I mean honestly Samsung idea of high-end TVs are LED TVs at just about OLED prices with what is always seeming the least amount of features.. I honestly don’t understand how Samsung is a competitor. Because I can tell you the next TV I get will not be a Samsung.. I only got the QLED because I don’t like the brightness or burn in of OLED an NanoCell Sucks especially the 2019 Nano 9 that was a blooming disaster.. don’t get me wrong the picture looks good relatively speaking but everything I watch is in regular HDR10 because HDR10+ isn’t supported anywhere worthwhile.. if I’m wrong and it is supported on things like Vudu HBO Max Disney+ or even one day soon games like Dolby Vision will be please let me know. Outside Amazon Prime which we all know is not really worth spending a dime on when it comes to movie platform I don’t see this technology supported anywhere or worth wasting the money.. it would be better to go off brand and get a QLED TV that actually packs features unlike Samsung’s bare minimum proprietary only TVs



  30. ll Rain ll on September 18, 2021 at 12:39 am

    What is the difference between the KS7000 and the TU7100



  31. E M on September 18, 2021 at 12:40 am

    does the Q80t have 4k 120Hz in gaming mode?



  32. Christopher LaPierre on September 18, 2021 at 12:41 am

    dude 1997 called and wants their lip piercings back….. damn son…. damn



  33. Chris shaw on September 18, 2021 at 12:42 am

    Why have I not been subscribed… that’s not my fault YouTube made a mistake there the button was supposed to have been clicked 😭😂



  34. Michael P on September 18, 2021 at 12:43 am

    Our experience using the 2020 Samsung 75Q80T with a cable box has been that certain channels and content are unwatchable due to Judder. Also, Fifty percent of the time when a scene changes the picture stutters for a half second as if it is figuring out again how to best decode the signal. This issue does not occur on any of our other TVs when hooked up to the same cable box for comparison. So, it is all the Q80T causing the problem. Through Netflix, everything was good, but 95% of our watching is through cable, so we were, shall I say, somewhat upset a $3,350 TV has these issues. I have never seen judder like this before on any TV, ever, in 50 years of TV watching. In fact, I didn’t even know what judder was until we had the Samsung 75Q80T. For an example see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j8e8Cs8unCE



  35. Evan Dewey on September 18, 2021 at 12:44 am

    What about the the RU9000? Why is there no info in this one?



  36. Liliana Oyhenart on September 18, 2021 at 12:45 am

  37. Scott Free on September 18, 2021 at 12:48 am

    Those piercings are hella weird… You really woke up one day and thought wow I would look good with two f**king rings through my lip… so cringy And I’m not sure if you naturally have a lisp or its a result of the piecing but I can’t watch this will all this whistling.



  38. MUCKSPREADER1 on September 18, 2021 at 12:48 am

    Dude get that shit out of your Face,it looks like you’ve been fishing with stevie wonder.



  39. Frank Gonzalez on September 18, 2021 at 12:50 am

    Samsun has lowered quality and raised prices



  40. jj jj on September 18, 2021 at 12:50 am

    He is my crush 😻



  41. Stefan Genov on September 18, 2021 at 12:52 am

    2021?



  42. Drscottyjones on September 18, 2021 at 12:52 am

    NEVER buy Samsung, they suck so bad, I want to beat mr Samsung with my Samsung tv



  43. Gerald Perry on September 18, 2021 at 12:52 am

    82"RU9000,yes also there’s RU8000.



  44. Alpha Ulfr on September 18, 2021 at 12:53 am

    i just ordered the Q80T last night after half of my lg 55u6300s went out about a month ago.



  45. Matt Dr Positive Snell on September 18, 2021 at 12:54 am

    I just brought the tu8507 50 inch here for Just £449 in 🇬🇧 which was £100 off the high street price a bargain no regrets so far 😀😀



  46. Damitsall on September 18, 2021 at 12:55 am

    This was a great video, and I have always appreciated RTINGS videos/website. Can you get a different guy to do the video though? I can tell he’s struggling to talk probably because of those weird chunks stuck in his face, and its not pleasant to listen to.



  47. Chris shaw on September 18, 2021 at 12:56 am

    So it looks like if I want the best tv I can get around 42 to 55 inches I’ll have to spend around 1400 wether it’s Samsung or LG



  48. Rich YouCanBuild on September 18, 2021 at 12:56 am

    can’t watch this with the wire hanging out of his mouth !!!



  49. Peter James on September 18, 2021 at 12:56 am

    Your review is so good, very informative. There is one flaw in your review. You said the Frame TV has ambient mode, but definitely some of their other TVs also have ambient mode although perhaps not as refined as that of the Frame TVs, and you didn’t really discuss the difference in the amount you have to pay to get the Frame TV. I believe the Q60 – Q90 have ambient mode, and I believe even the TU9000 has it. Also although you make picks of which TVs are your favorites for different purposes you don’t always explain how you arrived at each TVs rating. Anyway at least you do a serious review and show a lot of knowledge of all the TVs and consider them seriously. Thanks for review.
