With Dolby Digital, the Samsung Q9F is one of the best-sounding TVs on the market. It’s a super high-end model with a slim flat screen with cable management in the back. And the Dolby sound has a built-in subwoofer, ensuring fantastic sound quality. Samsung TVs are some of the best TVs on the market.

Why We Like It – Samsung Q9F

The Samsung Q9F is a large, luxury model TV with a quality picture that looks almost real. The Ambient Mode is a fantastic feature, playing background music or a picture slideshow, and the One Connect Box subtly stores your cords underneath the TV and allows it to be mounted flush against the wall.

Pros
  • Over a billion shades of quantum color
  • Ambient Mode makes your TV blend into the wall
  • Guaranteed against burn-in
Cons
  • Incredibly expensive
  • Amazon reviewers report trouble with Samsung customer service
  • Bixby is an outdated voice assistant

Performance/Display/Resolution/Refresh

The Samsung Q9F is a QLED LCD TV with a motion rate of 240 (120hz refresh rate) for clear video games. This has twice the refresh rate of the Samsung Q80T QLED. QLED TVs meet the highest Ultra HD standards defined by the Consumer Electronics Association, so you know Samsung makes great quality TVs. It has a Direct Full Array LED with an anti-reflective screen for more beautiful details and depth. It also has a High Dynamic Range powered by HDR 10+ (not Dolby Vision) for a better picture, as well as color Quantum Dots. Finally, there’s the Q Engine that swiftly processes color, HDR content, and 4K. For an option that does have Dolby Vision, read our Samsung 8000 Series review. The Samsung has a lot of picture quality options and settings, allowing you to adjust the local dimming zones and black levels for a beautiful contrast. Overall, it’s a great HDR TV. Compare it to another model, the Samsung Q80R. If you want to step up to an OLED TV option, you can read our OLED65E8PUA review.

Sound

Dolby Digital Sound makes the Samsung TV one of the best sounding TVs on the market. It has a built-in subwoofer, and it’s able to connect to multiple sound devices around the house. It also supports Bluetooth headsets for gaming that don’t bother your housemates.

Smart Features

The Samsung QLED is a smart TV with fantastic features. It has a Universal Guide that combines shows and movies from your favorite apps and services (Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, and more). The Samsung OneRemote detects and controls all your connected devices, and you can even download the SmartThings app on your smartphone to remotely control your TV shows.

Ports/Expandability

The Samsung Q9F has incredible connectivity, with 4 HDMI ports and 3 USB ports. You can have your cable box, XBOX One, Nintendo Switch, wireless keyboard, flash drive, and so much more plugged into the TV at once. It also has an ethernet port and Wi-Fi built-in. The Samsung GN65Q6FN 43 offers similar specs as the Q9F with the added benefit of a built-in cable management system.

Value

The Samsung Q9F is an incredibly expensive luxury brand TV where you definitely get what you pay for. All of Samsung’s QLED TVs are guaranteed against burn-in, so you know you’re getting a high-quality product. However, Amazon users review Samsung customer support as not entirely helpful, so make sure to do a lot of research, as you’ll want responsive tech support for any issues your expensive TV might have.

Samsung Q9F Wrap Up

The Samsung Q9F is a great TV, a luxury model with incredible picture and sound quality. It’s one of the best smart TVs on the market, with extraordinary HDR performance. It gives OLED TVs, like the LG CX OLEG TV, a run for its money. The biggest drawback of this TV is the price, so make sure to research.
