Wow! Quite a TV!

I want a 85", but am targetting $2k only :(. Maybe $2500 or $3000 if there is a good reason!

Might want to consider a 75" instead with that budget

A lot of people prefer it - means more options in terms of the media unit / TV stand you are going to put it on top of. If there are stands on either side, you have to make sure you have a a unit that is at least as wide, and in some cases, it's very close, to the point of being right on the edge, which isn't exactly safe either...

What's so special about the pricing? Isn't this MSRP?

I think the fact it’s available with Costco return and extra year warranty and how close it performs to the 90A makes it a deal - this has the same panel and # of dimming zones as the q90 - definitely a great tv and best price for performance at the 85” LCD premium market.

compare to smaller size, it should have a VA panel so the contrast would be better.
But it doesn't have dolby vision input support, and the only one HDMI 2.1 port (atleast not the same port as the ARC) makes it a harder buy if you have multiple next gen console / PC that uses it.

Typical Samsung, intentionally crippling their products...

Are you sure it has a VA panel? I think I read it has an IPS-like panel.

The smaller sizes do have ADS (like IPS) but this is VA: https://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/samsu ... ifferences

edit: personally I think at this pricepoint I'd be looking hard at the 77" OLED, but it's definitely a contender! I'm hoping either or both of these go down to $4k at BF.

I weighed the same options and ended up with a Sony 77" OLED.

The Samsung is a nice tv, but ultimately it's just trying to emulate OLED.
