Thanks for posting. FYI, it sounds like the model designations this year are a step down from last year's equivalent model designation. Tom's guide has a nice write-up on the differences in the 2020 model lineup https://www.tomsguide.com/news/sa...-tv-lineup

Here's an excerpt regarding Q70T series:
Q70TQLED display, Dual LED backlight, Edge lighting
The change to use edge lighting on the Q70 is another signal that the 4K QLED line is no longer Samsung's top-of-the line product. This essentially makes the Q70T the replacement for last year's Q60R, and Samsung has already made comments to the effect that the new Q60T will serve as Samsung's mass market product this year, replacing some of the non-QLED offerings sold in years past. As Samsung's many 8K QLED sets take the spotlight, this is somewhat expected.

Still waiting for rtings to review these TVs. Supposedly, the Q70t has one 4k 120hz port and really low input lag, but I want to see a review before picking up a 55 or 65 inch and I might wait for a lower price. It would be a long wait, but maybe next year all ports will be hdmi 2.1.

According to specs:

New 2020-Q70T series is kind of downgrade from 2019-Q70R in fields (according to specs):
- Have Edge lighting instead of full array.
- The panel is 8 bit instead of 10 bit.
- Sound is 2.0 (20W) instead of 2.1 (40W).

If you are looking at the 70T (2020 model), you are better of getting the 70R (2019 model) as it's much better compared to the 70T. The reason being, this year Samsung as effectively add 10 to last years models with little improvements. So 70T is actually a slightly improved 60R (2019).

If the price seems good to you, buy the TV. Folks are always out here trying to give you advice about devices they have no experience with. in 2018 the q7fn series was edge lit. The performance between the Q70r and Q7FN was a wash.
