Not a bad deal! I’d personally be looking toward the Q85A in the 85”, and attempting to negotiate a deal at visions If your in the Prairies or West - Q85A is a software limited version of the flagship Q90A (same number of dimming zones, 1300 or so, and VA panel) and its on sale for $3999. I think the Q80 has significantly less dimming zones so you will get more blooming, less contrast, and it doesn’t seem to get as bright.

That would be hot... i dont see it on Leons boxing day flyer however. The only $3299 TV i see in their flyer is 65" QN800 (8k).

It's there. Different sizes and prices are printed "inside" the TVs.

That's a q60 not near the same quality. For qleds you really need q80 and up to be justified or q70 bare minimum in my opinion. Otherwise stick to the series below q60, you'll save money and arguably have similar quality

The 85" VA panel is indeed super promising. Wish there where actual reviews of the 85" Q85A and direct comparisons to a Q90A. Hopefully can score a good deal soon.

They seem to indicate no delivery. Is that true? How does one pick up an 85" TV from the store, typically (don't have a truck).

This. I own the the QN85A 85" and coming from a 65" plasma it was big step up. IMO OLED still frame judder at low FPS content like TV/Movies is what made me buy this TV.

The difference is negligible. Do you want a super bright light cannon or a super, super bright light cannon? I compared them side by side in the showroom. After taking the 85" qn85a home I was really glad I didn't get the qn90a as this TV is for my master bedroom and at night I no longer need lamps running to get around the room.

You know you can adjust brightness, right?

Weird coincidence, me as well! Came from a Panny 65VT60. 85QN85a has been awesome the last month...chose it for the same reason, seeing it as a awesome value QN90 (@85" only tho). Picked up from local retailer for 3700+tax. Visions was close, around 3800 about 2 weeks before Black Friday, so lower than 4000 is possible.
