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.

I bought Samsung Q80t 75inch July 2020, after few months , the screen starts to playing up, everytime you start your tv and try to watch YouTube, you will have either funny picture display like only the center of the tv showing picture the outer section of the tv is darkened, or completed no picture but as you try to use the remote you can hear the sound which tells me the tv is on just no picture.
Complained to Samsung , had their technician came over changed new screen as it’s still under warranty, few days later same issue happened again. C...ontacted Samsung again for replacement, replied me with no replacement but offered refund but needs 30days for process or quick process store credit to purchase new tv. I go for store credit as I need don’t want to wait that long for refund, contacted the Retailer trying to replace with a same model brand new tv, but the new tv cost 400 dollar more than what I paid. And Samsung rejected to make up the difference. Horrible experience with Samsung as I lost so much time for not having tv and spent my personal time for contacting the customer service center and the retailer. Be very cautious with Samsung!

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.

User friendly SMART TV with excellent picture quality!
I have always been a fan of SAMSUNG TV and this Q80t just tick all the boxes. Reasonable price with excellent picture and sound quality. Very user friendly and quick to set up.

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.

Doesn't support casting!
Can't give a TV 5 stars in this day and age when it doesn't even support casting from a mobile/tablet device.
The TV turns up intermittently as one of the casting options and when it does, it doesn't work.
Even from a Samsung S20 FE also bought in 2020!
Spent hours researching it to find out it supports mirroring only (nowhere near the same thing btw!) via Samsung Smarthings App etc. There's an attempt from Samsung in explaining the difference but it doesn't acknowledge whether they even support casting or not.
https://www.samsung.com/au/s...upport/tv-audio-video/samsung-television-features-screen-mirroring-vs-casting/ Ended up buying a Chromecast in the end to get what should be standard and reliable function in any Smart TV these days. It's great as the HDMI auto-detects the signal when you cast and switches over.

Decent first tv
Satisfied with operating systems and apps. Sometimes it lags especially when first turned on. Bluetooth and wireless connection is good with sufficient ports and features and controls. The performance has been good. Only thing to mention is that since it is QLED, there is black lighting so it becomes hard to see during the day with sunlight.
Hard to compare with other tvs but watching YouTube, netflix and downloaded movies and dramas from your external HDD is easy. Downside is that the audio codec doesn’t support DTS and you need to download videos according to supported audio codec. Also when watching videos or movies, the voice is low but the music is loud.
I got mine for $2700 AUD
Purchased in December 2020 at JB Hi-Fi for $2,700.00.
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.

The picture is amazing, compared to the HISENSE Q7 version I sent back.
If you are looking for a QLED TV , get a Samsung ...
Only thing I don't like is only having 12 months warranty....

This TV is awesome, 4k looks so clear, PS5 and Xbox Series X look so clear. I have a previous Samsung TV which was great and nothing wrong with it so thought I would stay with them and do not regret it. Only one thing annoys me is Samsung have the ads

Super screen time
Very satisfied with this product. Screen is clear and visible at all angles.
Operating system and apps are always reliable.
This tv is supplied with enough ports.
Enjoy family time watching Netflix, YouTube and general viewing.

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.

Flawed TV - unprofessional customer service
I have been a Samsung fan and applaud the company for making so many high-quality things. I have their flagship phone, family hub fridge with big screen, flagship smart lock , washing machine etc.
I moved to a new house and pre-ordered the new Q80T 75 inch (6 weeks wait with full payment). As I thought it's a bright tv to suit bright rooms perfectly and get value as its massive 75 inch and its a Samsung what could go wrong Right? Wrong!
Just about everything about this TV is wrong. I can explain below:
Following is verified from "TechOne" a ...third party technician provided by Samsung. It also has been acknowledged by Samsung. I can provide references. Some can be fixed with the repair but some are design issues which are far annoying for any pleasurable TV experience.

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!!

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.

Way too expensive for a flawed TV
This is Samsung's Flagship 85" 4k TV. QLED, all the bells and whistles.
(Unless you want to drop nearly 20K on te 8K 85" QLED).
I purchased this from JB HI FI, (I always buy from JB). No issues with them at all.
The TV, Unboxing, Well packaged and protected.
IT'S Huge. Wow. Wall Installation was troublesome, not due to size or weight (43kg), but mounting the brackets meant it squishes the back mesh! I thought I needed special brackets, or stand-offs. Nope just use the correct length bolt (you can't damage the TV if bolts are too long, they ju...

Samsung Q80T v Sony X95G
Happy with the TV, sound is really good. No need for a sound bar. It is comparable to Sony's X95G picture quality except for the poor sound of Sony X95. Check it in-store to see the clarity of videos. You'll be blown away by the 60W sound output of the TV.
