    A Quantum leap for display tech

    The Samsung Q6FN offers high end design and picture quality at a reasonable cost.

    The slim brushed metal bezel and crows feet stand are close in design to Samsung’s own Q8FN.
    The Q6 lacks the Ultra black elite filter found on the Q7,Q8 and Q9. The semi-gloss screen on helps minimize reflection and improve perceived contrast.

    SET UP:
    Once out of the box set up is a tool free low stress affair. Simply snap the two legs into their positions found on the bottom of display and your done. Initial software/network set up takes less than ten minutes and you’re up and running. My set needed an update to bring it up to 1131 which offers some advanced usability features and for the 55” and above Freesync/Variable refresh rate support.

    Samsung employs a VA based panel which offers excellent static contrast of 6000:1+, so black level performance is impressive.
    Samsung offers local dimming of the edge-lit variety with a limited amount of zones, so you may experience a little blooming/haloing around bright objects against a dark back ground. If you have a litte ambient light in your viewing area this shouldn’t be noticeable. For those that like to turn the lights off a gentle bias light behind the display would help alleviate the issue as well as minimize eye strain and improve perceived contrast.

    The star of the show as far as picture quality goes is Samsung’s Quantum dot technology. Which uses a thin metal coating over their LED backlight to offer a broader spectrum of colors. Pair this with the peak brightness in HDR of 800+ nits and you get a saturated image with highlights that pop.

    Whether you’re watching UHD video or gaming on your PS4 Pro/Xbox one X you’ll be impressed with the image on hand.

    Good sound quality isn’t often associated with built in speakers, but I was impressed with the audio quality of the TV.
    The 40w speaker set up offers two down firing speakers and a woofer for better than average sound.
    Will this replace a dedicated surround sound system or sound bar… no, but it is a good solution until or if you decide to upgrade.

    Swinging through the sun drenched city of New York as Spider-man or the Jungles of Shadow of the Tomb raider as Lara Croft I was never disappointed.

    The Q6FN is an amazing gaming set,but Samsung did a major disservice to gaming crowd (which the 49” would have been perfect for PC players) by opting for a 60hz panel on the 49”. Excluded also is Freesync/Variable refresh rate found on the native 120hz panels found in the 55” and above sizes.
    While motion is still very good on this display the inclusion of the faster panel and Freesync/VRR would have made the Q6FN the display to beat.
    I have noticed no smearing/trailing in motion or unnatural motion blur.

    Input lag is also where Samsung excels offering around 13-15ms response time.
    This makes for a hitch free gaming experience whether your playing 3rd person adventure games or going head to head online.

    Samsung’s Tizen platform now offers Bixby. Bixby is similar to Google voice assistant which offers faster and smarter navigation.
    The small simple remote included with the TV has a mic equipped for helping with voice navigation.

    This is the area that I have spent the least amount of time with since I do little outside of gaming.
    One of the complaints I have heard about their smart platform is non-defeatable
    Ads, so if you plan on the Q6 being your all in one streaming machine keep this mind.

    I am truly impressed by the price to performance offered by the Q6. Is it perfect? No, but you’re not likely to find a perfect display with any brand.
    The TV just has to be perfect for you.

    I have been impressed with and at times blown away by the performance of the Q6 out of the box and would easily recommend to gamers or videophiles.

    TV Review

    This is a nice TV with a lot of cool features and apps. The bad part is the Bluetooth is not very good. I can’t hear stuff on Bluetooth headphones very well. I tried a few Bluetooth headphones. I wish Samsung would have put an audio out hook up so you could hook up wireless headphones or other things. I won’t buy another TV from them for this reason.

    Unbelievable picture

    Love the TV beautiful picture, easy to set up. The only negative to my experience was the site advertised a Black Friday special price and when I looked at my local Best Buy add they had it for the same price.

    OLED QF6FN 49″

    I spent one weeks locking at multiple Samsung 49″ and Sony.49″ sets. The Q6FN is excellent, the sharpness, PQ (picture quality), color accuracy is really good.

    Much to my surprise, the remote is good and I was stunned that it picked up all the Charter/Spectrum key remote functions. The remote does need a “back” button.

    No issues setting it up, I was smart enough to confirm my password was correct for my Samsung account…it wasn’t so I had that fixed before turning on the new TV. Also had out my WIFI router password so it was a breeze.

    In my opinion the set is slight too bright out of the box and the contrast was to high. Especially with movies with lots of snow…the detail is great but the brightness is too much. I went into the color controls and lowered the contrast by 5 points and the brightness by 3. I have now started to use “MOVIE” mode and the image is great.

    On normal TV programming the picture quality is fine and its only too bright when there is lots of white in the image. Highly recommend the Q6FN QLED 49″ set.

    WARNING: DOES NOT SUPPORT IR (You know, the normal

    I’m finding the TV way to modern for me. For example, the TV doesn’t support IR. So, this means that neither my Dish Remote or Harmony remotes will work with it.
    There isn’t any indication on the box, and support was slow to let me know that this was the reason my remote could not connect to it. I had to contact support several times before someone told me.

    Does not support a second remote

    According to Samsung Support, the TV can only be paired with one remote. Boy, for such an advanced TV, it sure is limited by the lack of IR and compatibility.

    A fine entry level QLED TV

    Easy to set up and get operating. Great sound and picture. It rivals the OLED by LG that I have.

    Great picture quality

    I bought this TV back in January. I did do a lot of research before purchasing it. I wanted one that had a great picture. This has it. The picture is super. Everything is very crisp and clear. It’s very easy to adjust the color settings to what you like the best. The other aspect that I was looking for was sound and the ability to sync with my sound bar. This has that also. Adjusting the sound quality to what one likes the best was a breeze. The ability of the TV to link up to my sound bar was also very easy. I have not used the broadcasting because there is no need for it. The Smart Features is pretty awesome as well. Having different aps available through the Smart Hub is great. No more having to cast from the computer if there is an app available. The cords/wires are cleverly hidden in the legs of the TV. It makes everything a bit neater on the back side.
