Samsung Q90T 65" Class HDR 4K UHD Smart QLED TV (2020) $1799 (no tax in CA)

There have been several deals posted for different sizes of this year's Q90 (Q90T) and Q80 (Q80T) at greentoe over the last few days. For me, a successful price of $1799 (with no CA taxes) for the 65" Q90T is the best deal so far. Model QN65Q90TAFXZA: https://www.greentoe.com/product/...5Q90TAFXZA

Authorized dealer as with all greentoe sources. With no tax in CA, this is roughly equivalent to ~$1650 at other retailers depending on where in CA you live. Naturally, YMMV in other states.

Obligatory statement (1) that the Q90T is closer to an upgrade to last year's Q80R rather than Q90R in certain respects, such as number of local dimming zones. Even so, compared to pricing on last year's Q80R at similar time of year, this 65" deal looks pretty great to me. In addition, vs last year's models, Q90T features:
1) much better game mode picture quality,
2) future proof in at least one HDMI port for next-gen consoles at 4k 120hz, and
3) being widely available, unlike the Q80R or Q90R.

Obligatory statement (2) that depending on your use case, another brand may be better in either picture quality in dark rooms (LG OLED) or value if you're willing to compromise on picture quality, brightness, and/or viewing angle (Sony X950H or X900H). For my use case, which combines web browsing, gaming, and general TV usage in a room that isn't perfectly dark, from what I've seen, the Q90T is the best option.

Again, your use case may vary, and while these factors matter for me, they might not for you, in which case you can by buy a different brand or try to find last year's discontinued Samsung model.

Hope this helps someone else get a good deal on the best TV for them!

best price I've seen on this model! How does this model compare to the 2019 Q90R? I purchased one last year and I'd be pretty bummed if the game mode /HDMI input mentioned in the post was a significant upgrade from the 2019 model. I'd be inclined to switch since Gaming is my primary use case :/

This is, for all intents and purposes, the Q80R successor with a thinner profile and improved dimming algorithms. Based on last year's trends, my target for this set would be $1400 OTD by BF. Still, this is a decent price for this time of year if you're in need.

This video review shows a short comparison in game mode (Q95T is basically the same model but not available in US): https://youtu.be/ne_S8CYKbxU?t=685

According to display specifications Samsung Q90T is not a true 10 bit panel. It's an 8 bit panel+FRC: https://www.displayspecifications...l/945d1ddb

I am just disseminating this information. Not trying to thread cap. But people have right to know what they are buying for premium money. Note: last year's Q90R had a 10 bit panel.

Only 1 hdmi 2.1 port it looks like. Probably will hold out foe next year's model in case it has it on all 4.
