Sony Z9D vs Z9F vs A9F OLED

Sony Z9D vs Z9F vs A9F Comparison Table (Differences Only).

QLED vs OLED

Samsung Q9FN QLED vs OLED (LG C8; Sony A8F) Comparison:
  • The main strengths of the Samsung Q9FN QLED TV are the brightness output, color saturation in highlights, local dimming algorithm, anti-reflective filter, various gaming features (including low input lag), One Connect Box and no risk of image retention.
  • The strong points that the LG C8 and Sony A8F OLED TVs have in common are the black level, color saturation in shadows, Dolby Vision support, viewing angles, pixel response time.
  • The Sony A8F has a slight advantage over both the LG C8 and Samsung Q9FN when it comes to image processing (including motion interpolation) and sound (due to the Acoustic Surface technology).
  • The LG C8 has a lead in terms of auto calibration functionality (but this requires specialized software and equipment that are sold separately).

LG C8 vs E8 (OLED65C8PUA vs OLED65E8PUA; OLED55C8PUA vs OLED55E8PUA)

LG C8 vs E8: The differences between the LG C8 and E8 are limited to sound, design, and screen sizes they are available in (the C8 comes in three screen sizes, including a 77-inch class model whereas the E8 can be only be found in the 65-inch and 55-inch size class). in other words, the picture quality, processing power, and Smart TV functionality are identical on the C8 vs E8.

Samsung Q6FN vs NU8000 vs MU8000 (QN82Q6FNAFXZA vs UN82NU8000FXZA; QN75Q6FNAFXZA vs UN75NU8000FXZA; QN65Q6FNAFXZA vs UN65NU8000FXZA)

The Q6FN and NU8000 differ mainly in terms of the DCI-P3 color volume (which leads to a certain variation in the color saturation with HDR content, especially during bright scenes), their picture engine (which has an effect on the upscaling and SDR to HDR upconvertion, however slight), and design (the table top stand and the color of top and left/right side bezels).

Samsung Q8FN vs Q7FN vs Q7CN (QN75Q8FNBFXZA vs QN75Q7FNAFXZA; QN65Q8FNBFXZA vs QN65Q7FNAFXZA; QN55Q8FNBFXZA vs QN55Q7FNAFXZA)

The Q8FN differs from the Q7FN and Q7CN in the backlight structure, contrast ratio, the table top stand and wall-mounting options (the No Gap Wall Mount compatibility in particular), and whether the One Connect Box is included or not. The Q7FN and Q7CN differ in terms of the shape of the screen and stand (the Q7FN has a flat screen whereas the Q7CN has a slightly curved screen and a stand that matches the screen curvature). The depth enhancing technology is also different on the Q7FN vs Q7CN in order to reflect the screen shape. The Q7CN has a geometric contrast enhancer whereas the Q7FN utilizes a standard Contrast Enhancer.

Samsung Q9FN vs Q8FN (QN65Q9FNAFXZA vs QN65Q8FNBFXZA; QN75Q9FNAFXZA vs QN75Q8FNBFXZA)

The Q9FN and Q8FN differ mainly in the number of local dimming zones (which causes their peak brightness and contrast ratio to be different as well), design (besides the different table top stand that is included, there is a certain distinction in terms of whether they're compatible with other optional Samsung stands or not), the placement of the inputs and electronics (either inside a separate box or at the back of the TV - which affects the thickness of the TV as well as how accessible the inputs are - especially in case of wall mounting your TV), and audio (there is a difference in the bass response and mid-range tones).

LG B8 vs C8 Review (OLED65B8PUA vs OLED65C8PUA; OLED55B8PUA vs OLED55C8PUA)

The main LG B8 vs C8 difference is their video processing capability. Due to a different image processor being used on LG B8 vs C8, the number of steps in the MPEG Noise Reduction process is different, and so are the depth and sharpness enhancer techniques on the LG B8 vs C8. That being said, the impact of these features on the picture quality is limited (and they can be discarded altogether when watching high quality sources).
