So I'm happy to say, after going through 1 75" Q6FN, 1 Sony Z9D, and 3 (YES 3) Q8FN's, i finally took the plung and ordered me the 75" Q7FN, the TV i should have originally got in the first place
Why you ask???
I started off with the 75" Q6, i loved that TV, i just wanted brighter HDR which was the reason for me trading it in in the first place. I then got the 65" Q8, after about a day of owning the Q8, i traded it in and got the Q6 back due to size, once i went 75" it was hard to go down a size. I then traded in the Q6 once again with the intentions of getting the 75" Q7. Well, while i had my Q7 on order for delivery, my brother texts me one day showing that Best Buy had the 65" Z9D back in stock. Here we go again! So i canceled my Q7 order.
I have a huge 3D Movie collection and the Z9D is the only TV out there that does 3D (atleast at it's price), so i purchased the 65" Z9D, i purchased a wall mount that went out from the wall 3 feet (my previous mount went out 2 feet), with the hope that the screen would look bigger. Long story short, the Z9D was great, but i missed the Motion Interpolation in video games, especially while playing RDR2, as RockStar put a good amount of motion blur in it and i can't stand it, the Motion Interpolation on my Q6 took care of this issue for me. I didn't think i would miss the game settings on these Samsung's so much, but i cane to the realization that i just couldn't live without them, so their goes the Z9D. BTW, i also did not like the color on the Z9D, it didn't POP like i wanted, the Gamut is only like 84%, which never brought the picture out for me. The HDR was awesome though.
By this point i got use-to a 65" TV again, especially with my new wall mount, so i decided to go back and purchased the Q8. This TV by far had the most insane color against a black background i have ever seen, simply GORGEOUS!!! My brother owns a B6 and C8 OLED and the Q8 is darn close to looking like one of these, but with colors that pop even more and much brighter HDR! I LOVED THIS TV!!! Especially dark movies, they simply took my breath away! Street lights, highlights, ect, had zero bloom while keeping them rich blacks intact. Well, then came "Zelda"... About 2 days into owning the Q8, i turned on my Nintendo Switch, startd playing Zelda, and i just couldn't get over the DSE!!! I never seen anything like this before, It was SO distracting!!! I posted a video of it in the Q8 owners thread, and one guy said this was normal! The colors looked INCREDIBLE, everything was awesome, Zelda popped like never before, but that DSE KILLED IT for me, i just could NOT live with it!!! So the next day i took the TV back to Best Buy and exchange it for another Q8, this Q8 the DSE was just as bad, i just cannot play my games like this! Maybe people get use to it, maybe both of my Q8 panels weren't as good they could have been (as far as DSE), i don't know, but what i did know is the Q8 was going back. Such a shame, because it was the most perfect, beautiful TV (as far as picture) that I've ever had.
Which leads me to now... Just today i purchased the 75" Q7FN which will be delivered on Thursday. Atleast with the Q7 i know what i am getting, i enjoyed my Q6 very much, i would have kept it if not for the low brightness in HDR, and HDR the Q7 does much better and basically takes care of this issue. Yes, i will miss the them awesome blacks of my Z9D and especially my Q8's, but i can live with that. What i cannot live with is blotchy DSE, dull colors and not that great motion on the Z9D, and less then adiquit HDR.
Moral of the story... There is absolutely no perfect TV out there, you just need to find what you can live with and what you cannot, there is give and take no matter what set you go with, and I'm happy to say I'm glad to be back on board here with the Q7, this WAS the TV i initially traded in my Q6 for in the first place, before my eye's started to wonder off looking at others sets.
Looking forward to recieving my Q7 on Thursday, will give initial impressions upon arrival. 👍
