Yup.... The marginal improvement of the 2018 model and price disparity makes it not really worth it to buy the Q7FN

The main improvements in the new 2018 models were in the higher models.

Any significant differences between Samsung 55q7f (2017) and 55q8c (2017) except that 1 is flat and another is curved?

I'm aware of that 55EZ950s at the waterway outlet, even asked a few times from the staff there if they have stock in their warehouse, always tell me the display unit is the last one they have.

Apparently, the Compass Point roadshow have stock at the warehouse, no idea how that works tho
Is salesman trick. Is best to check more outlet at different place. Within the store mat be no more, warehouse may still have it.

2018 model has a bigger one connect box, no need power to QLED panel. The one connect cable is slightly thicker (as it carries power to panel).
2017 model should be around $2399 to $2499 depending on which outlet you go.

The type of antenna is less important than your location..
Check out our DTV and antenna threads, cheers.

Hello all! Would like to ask if there is any shops that can allow you to test local TV (Channel 5 / Channel 8) content on 4K TV? I went to BD Ngee Ann City and the Samsung salesman say that the TV (Signature Series) that I was looking at is not hooked up to local TV channels.

Currently I am using a 55 incher Panny FHD Plasma and the PQ is pretty decent when watching local TV channels.

Thank you.

Watched some reviews on Youtube and apparently some of the "better" features are found on 7 & above, 6 series doesn't get it. But of course if you talk about local dimming only 9 series has it lah.

Went to see Samsung Q7F 2017 and 2018 models (65 inch) at BD last night.

65 inch Q7F 2017 model: $4300 (not many sets left)
65 inch Q7F 2018 model: $5600 (with $300 grocery vouchers)

Honestly so tempted to buy

Rich man. If i do go with samsung i can only afford 2018 55” Q7F.

I have homehub elite $40 voucher & free delivery so prob buy from courts unless HN or BD has some crazy offer which i doubt since its new model.

Had always been considering 2018 samsung Q7F & sony 9000F & was quite set on samsung till someone in another thread pointed out 9000F is local dimming which i did not realise.

Seeing that Q7F is edge local dimming & the 55” 9000F is full array PLUS it costs less than Q7F, i guess its a no brainer?

Not rich ah if I were rich I would have gotten it last night. Only reason why I wanna get 65inch is because currently I have both a 65inch and 55inch but like 55inch no kick leh. 65 inch feels damn shiok
