Hey @Flatpanels, I've owned and thoroughly tested KS8000, Q9FN and Q900. Could you please start taking in to consideration that Samsung TV's can't do sRGB and Chroma 4:4:4 at the same time in any mode available, input set to PC has Color Space locked to Native which makes sRGB content super saturated and input set to Game Console can only do 4:2:2.
- Also input PC, if it ever became usable, has on both Q9FN and Q900 dimmer HDR, so if you want to do HDR gaming on you PC after doing some work or browsing, ideally with 4:4:4 for sharp text and such, you have to manually switch input to Game Console to get full HDR brightness and then when you are done, manually switch back again to PC, this is such mess and very tiresome to do. I eventually go tired of this and some other thing and returned my Q9FN and Q900 and went with ZF9 instead. It does sRGB at 4:4:4 in Game and Graphics mode with 21ms input lag as well as delivering full HDR brightness without a hitch. This is really important to some people but I don't see many reviews putting any emphasis or pressure on Samsung for this.
- I know a firmware is on the way for local dimming but I could clearly notice Q900 having raised blacks and blooming in HDR Game mode, did you do any measurement to compare the TV's Standar and Movie mode against HDR performance in Game mode?
- Finally, why do you guys set the Gamma to BT.1886 +2? Is this Gamma 2.2 or 2.4 or even 2.0, what is your reasoning?
