Seems like a solid TV.
Thoughts on this vs. the LG C9 or OLED from Sony?
Primary use: movies and TV shows.

Just got LG's top-of-the-line 4K LCD, the NANO91 from Costco, and unlike the entry-level 2019 UN6970, with which we had all kinds of problems, it has been flawless, and for less ($1400) than Samsung. The 2020 Samsung line is pretty much a numerical downgrade across their line; Q80T is more like Q70R, Q70T is more like Q60R, etc. It seems to be a theme this year. LG, for example, also backed off from their full bandwidth in their HDMI/HDCP implementation, though they still do UHD @ 60Hz.
The Q70R was well regarded, so the Q80T should be good as well, BUT it costs so much more than the last year's model.

If money isn't an object, would recommend the OLED.

Always several factors to consider - if you need visibility from a wide angle, an IPS panel or the OLED will be a much better fit. Contrast degrades really quickly off-axis.

If you primarily care about detail, OLED is your best bet.

So why not just always OLED? Well - if you have a bright room and HDR brightness is also a primary consideration, that's an area an OLED tends not to hold up as well. It won't quite "pop" in a bright room (particularly with bright scenes) in the way a top level QLED can, even though you can lose some detail as a trade off.

Q80R is better but has no HDMI 2.1 ports. Which will only matter to you soon if you game.
