My big issue with this review is the statement that the Q9F has 100% color volume coverage.
That is false. This review almost reads like an advertisement with that in it. We read these reviews for the thing you're reviewing, not so you can (incorrectly) brag about your TV. Yes, the color volume is good, but it's not worth exaggerating about.
Some people are more sensitive to marketing speak than others. I did not see any issue with including that wording, or how it explicitly distracts from the review. Especially with that DCI/P3 gamut reading from rtings.com being so awfully close to 100%. But, I appreciate the feedback and I edited the piece to say "wide color gamut" instead.
As rtings.com notes in the link you provide, "Excellent wide color gamut, wider than its competitors, the Sony Z9D, A1E and LG C7. The deep green performance is especially notable, which is something most TVs struggle with. The accuracy of the colors is excellent too, so colors in HDR content should be well represented.

In other words, the Q9F is a great TV for evaluating the wide color gamut of HDR games.
You have highlighted the importance of noting that Samsung has provided the QLED TVs for these game reviews, so I have updated the post to indicate that. I am not "bragging" about "my" TV because it is not my TV.
Also, that's not going to be the only rig used for game reviews. But, it just so happens that Xbox and Samsung ARE co-promoting the Xbox One X and QLED TVs. For game reviews, the Xbox One X is going to be at the forefront for a little while, since it's the newest platform.
But long-term, the reviews will be a mix of platforms and displays. I've got a PS4 Pro, a PC with a GTX1080, and this sweet TV that just arrived (65" LG G7 OLED, provided by LG)...
I've also got a Sony X930E here, in the wings waiting its turn. You guessed it, that one was provided by Sony.
Sure, I don't have a Vizio P Series on hand, but that's because I suggested to Vizio that it send that model to Scott Wilkinson to review (Vizio did exactly that). It's because I have no more room for TVs in my home at the moment.
And that's not even getting into the projectors. For instance, what it's like gaming on Sony's VPL-VW885ES in 60p HDR. I have the PS4 Pro hooked up to that right now.
