Question LG SK8100/SK8500 or Samsung QE55Q6FN


Novice Member
I've been looking at purchasing a new TV for a while now and think I've narrowed it down to two choices.

I'm torn between the LG SK8100 (I'd also include the SK8500 as I can't tell what the difference is between the two...does anyone?) and the Samsung QE55Q6FN.

The TV will be used for watching Sky, Blu-Ray films, Netflix, Prime and gaming on PS4 Pro and Xbox One S.

Any help will be greatly appreciated as I can't make my mind up on what the best option would be.

I have the SK8500 - it has much better HDR compared to the SK8100 thanks to its full array dimming. It doesn't have lots of zones, but it's certainly a heck of a lot better than the edge lit 8100 display.

The 9500 and 8500 are also brighter than the 8100.

While the SK8500 isn't a totally dark room TV - certainly compared to an OLED - in a daylight room or even a darkened (but not totally dark room) the performance is excellent. The peak brightness is very high which makes HDR really pop.
