Nice picture, but really irritating interface
Too many buttons to press to get to fundamental options like changing source. Too much fat in the operating system. Cannot use apps until you agree to very questionable privacy policies of stalking what you watch. Then you get Ads, another thing in the way of simply getting to picture/sound options
Otherwise this is a lovely Tv OFFLINE. I just other devices to get what i want instead of any built in apps, without the privacy blackmail as described above.
It would be great if samsung offered an update where you at least have the option of turning all the bloat off for people not interested in being stalked.

Perfect picture - mind blowing!!
This is my first Samsung TV after years of Panasonic TV ownership and can I say I am totally delighted.
The TV is of great build quality and came well packaged. Beautiful solid metal stand and very fine bezel. I have handled LED TVs before and they are always light and flimsy. This TV is anything but. It feels solid and is actually almost as heavy as my old 65" Panasonic Plasma.
Installation was a breeze and the technology in the TV picked up my HDMI devices and Sonos Soundbar without any input necessary. The TV was up and running in 10 minut...es. The Samsung Tizen OS is fantastic and is quick and easy to use with the awesome and simple Samsung Remote. I love how it picks up my Foxtel and gives me access to all my streaming services (including Apple TV) all in one simple to use menu. Now to the picture....it is amazing!! I was thinking about an OLED but after seeing the QLED image on the Q80T I changed my mind and as a bonus you don't have concerns about burn in.

This is an amazing tv.
If you are thinking to buy one don’t hesitate.
The picture quality is unbelievable.
It makes even HD movies to look like 4K .
Even the sound for a tv is really good.
I don’t even use my headset when playing games.
Very easy and simple to operate with the smart remote control.
Love this tv.
So happy I ended buying one.

An Excellent TV
After reviewing a handful of Tv's from LG, Samsung and Sony my final choices came down to the Samsung Q80T, the Sony x95H and x90H TV's, i ended up purchasing the Samsung Q80T due to it actually being alot better than the sony brands when it comes to picture quality and 4k content its an excellent tv from samsung. The reason i did not purchase either of the Sony tv's was due to sony also being a google tv and that was a huge turn off.
Also looked at the LG CX Oled which is a good Tv but burn in is an issue, too probmatic.
Another reason i ...decided to stick with samsung is because my current tv is a samsung 55 inch ES 8000 from 2014, about 14 months after purchasing the ES8000 the tv developed some dead pixels on the screen, i had never dealt with samsung customer service before and after calling them and explaining the issue samsung were fantastic, within 2 days a licenced samsung repairer came to our home and inspected the tv and the next day he returned with a replacement screen, it was a hassel free experience and i thank Samsung for that. Fantastic customer service. I have had no issues with the Q80T, Easy to setup, Fantastic picture, excellent PC monitor and for gaming, 2.1 Hdmi Port, 4K at 120 Hz, VRR, freesync, low latency gaming, 4k HDR content is outstanding and the sound is crisp and clear, samsung tvs were never known for good sound but the Q80 is a huge improvement its very very good. The Q80T doesnt come with dolby vision but does have HDR10 plus. To be honest there is barely any difference between the 2 but HDR10 plus does look brighter and darker scenes do have better contrast. Dolby Vision isnt a deal breaker. Its a well made Tv from samsung if you wanted to spend more money The Q 90T or 95t is an option but the only differences are a bit better HDR and the one connect box, overall there isnt much difference between Q80T and the Q90 Q95 models, just a higher price.

After weeks of research, and getting the Xbox Series X, I was finally ready to pull the trigger on the Q80T. It has every feature I want to get the full next-gen console experience.
Within days of owning it, I noticed this strange ghosting around nearly every object on the screen when gaming, I dug deep into the TV settings, watched YouTube clips of the best settings, but still, it was there. When panning the camera, a tree, for example, would project a purple ghosting outline in the direction of the movement. This was extremely distracting, a...nd the faster the camera pan, the further out the purple ghosting effect would project away from the object. Once I noticed it, there was no going back. I tested every game I had, it was on all of them, some worse than others, and especially visible in dark scenes as the screen would light up with this purple ghosting artifact. I hit the forums, within minutes of searching, found other user posts about it, I was gutted. The TL:DR of it; it's been happening since last year's model, Samsung claim they fixed it with firmware updates, if you disable VRR (Freesync) and 120hz mode it's barely visible (but why would you, isn't this why you purchased this tv?).

Samsung’s latest feature is advertisements in the menu
This panel is currently connected to an AppleTV 4K and Sonos Arc. It was intended to fill a 4x6m front room and be compatible with PS5. Since purchase, it has been used in a spare room for streaming content via AppleTV until home renos are finished.
(( Product Review’s Questions ))
(( If the unit is a Smart TV, how satisfied are you with its operating system and apps? ))
I’m not. I was particularly disappointed to see advertisements in the main menu.

Not a bad TV, but not worth the price tag
Bought this TV based on reviews. Honestly feel like the TV relies on its brand name, how do so many sites rate it so highly ? Beyond me... Have reviews been bought.. I dont know. My breakdown below:
Upscaling: Passable, TV struggles to smooth out noise on standard definition and any jaggys on non 4k content.
Brightness & Vibrance: 6.5 out of 10.
Sound: Very average, lacks clarity and crispness.
Motion smoothing: excellent, almost no noticable artifacts.
When content is HD/4K the picture is decent but still lacks the vibrance Ive found on othe...r 4K TVs. Anytime you watch live TV it takes a few minutes to get used to the jaggy/blockiness. Switching to dynamic picture mode and cranking the brightness can sometimes result in blinding whites and still not enough brightness in other areas of the screen, its hard to get a good balance and something Ive had to get used to. I'd love to know how this TV got rated so highly on sites like rtings.com.
QLED Samsung FAULTY
Purchased latest Samsung QLED 80T June 2020. Just 2 months later we lost power to the unit and technician replaced main board and reported, “Smart tv not connected to internet it was unable to update software apparently it blew the main board.” 1 week later again no power, tech unable to detect problem. A search on internet “Samsung switching off” seems be the norm. Tried to contact Samsung and to be told that the number Samsung supplies is just a call centre and they only take note of your problem. I was told by Samsungs technicians to go back to Good Guys where it was purchased for refund also Sumsung want to charge a fee if I would like a report from the first repair. Never again!!
Purchased in June 2020 at The Good Guys for $2,750.00.
QLED still shines bright.
I use as a pc monitor and tv. The white packaged protection strips caused banding on the edges that went after couple of days. Ran every test on youtube and cannot fault it. Runs games at 120hz x 1440p no problem. Sound is acceptable which is amazing for a tv. I use an optical tos link to an AV amp though, which it auto recognised as well as the fox box. One remote for all, nice.
Only negative is ads on menu bar, i have it disconnected from wifi and only connect when needed. Lost a star there samsung.
Dedicated button on remote for picture mode would be good

Excellent TV for the price bracket
Recieved the TV today from the Good Guys store at Gepps Cross (excellent service from the sales staff).
Very impressed with the picture quality, requireds some tweaking (well, an hours worth) to get the picture to my liking, but now set I am really happy with it.
Sound quality is surprisingly good, dont need a sound bar at this stage. The Menu system is well designed and I found it to be very intuitive; would be nice to have the Binge app available, but that is in the pipeline apparently.

$3000 down the drain after one week
My husband was very excited to buy a new TV and sunk $3000 into this new purchase. He babied it. Set it up in the lounge room by himself and no-one was allowed to go near it. He didn't even dare to clean the screen. Not to mention, no-one even needed to go near the TV because we use a remote. It seemed to be working perfectly. Despite this, after 7 days' use, I turned on the TV to find it covered in lines. No problem, we thought, we'll get it fixed under warranty. But when the repairers came to our house they told us it was our fault because it...was a 'pressure crack'. Samsung will not honour the warranty. Although the screen looks perfect, and nothing has been thrown at it, nor has it been bumped, etc, it has been treated and protected like the crown jewels, this 'pressure crack' is apparently our fault. So now we have lost $3000 to this company. The warranty is worthless and we feel robbed. They do not care about their customers at all. My husband has since put in a complaint to Samsung personally but again, they say it is our fault, which is highly insulting. Don't risk buying anything from this company, this could just as easily happen to any of you!
