      Hi,

      I am selling an awesome 78" Samsung flagship model with direct back-lit Full Array Local Dimming.

      Most of you interested in this TV will already know the specs and what you're looking for so I won't go into the details of the TV.

      If you're looking for a massive back-lit TV instead of edge-lit, want deeper blacks and avoid the light bleed of edge-lit, at a much discounted price than what you would currently pay for a new Q9/8, or similar sized Sony, then I highly recommend a used KS9500.

      I purchased this back in April 2018 from a first hand user for £4200, it is in perfect working order, still under a 5 year warranty (exp. 03/2022), comes with both remotes, and a glass swivel stand.

      Please let me know if you have any questions.

      This is part of a complete home cinema that I am selling at this post For Sale - Complete Dolby Atmos 5.1.4 Cinema For Sale

      Cheers.

      I thought I'd add a few more images of an HDR clip. It's really difficult to capture but tried my best.

      Thanks for the reply! It is awesome indeed.

      That's a shame, 3" make all the difference? Limited wall size?

      Would a QF9N have a better screen than this?

      @Luke2014 @rorz12 I hope you don't mind my posting here. This screen being sold is from the Samsung KS9500 series, which came one year after the Samsung JS9500 series. Recently camelot1971 sold his 65JS9500 machine because he had just bought a new Samsung 65Q9FN. For a while he had both his old 65JS9500 and the new 65Q9FN in his house, and could position them side by side, so I asked him to compare the two sets, three years apart in age but both of them were reviewed by Home Cinema Choice magazine to be "Reference Status". I was curious about how much progress had really been made during those three years.

      Here is his comparison Samsung 65JS9500 vs Samsung 65Q9FN.

      @Luke2014 My point is, since the three-year-old JS9500 is really quite close to the new Q9FN, then we can have confidence that the two-year-old KS9500 will be even closer to the new Q9FN. Buy the 78KS9500 with confidence! :clap:

      I can't find any reviews online of the 78" size, but there are lots of reviews of the 65" size, for instance Trusted Reviews, What Hi-Fi review. Good luck!

      Hi, thanks for your post and no problem for linking all the material.

      I do remember reading that for FHD, HD and regular SD content that the older KS9500 models have a better picture than the newer Q9 series as there is less artifacts, and it handles sharpening better. And that the 4K UHD is slightly improved on the newer model.

      Honestly, the picture quality on the 78" I have is truly stunning. The photos I took above do little justice. I used to have the 65" which I gave to my dad and I actually bought this 78" KS9500 over last years flagship Q9 model, because at the time their Q9 didn't have FALD it was edge-lit, and I knew how stunning the PQ was on my 65" and how crap edge-lit is.

      I was really glad they re-introduced direct back-lit FALD again into their flagship models.

      Whoever is looking for a 75"+ size TV and is considering paying the price of a new Samsung Q9, I seriously recommend passing by for a look at this one first. It's quite a big saving and by no means inferior.
