Samsung QE43QN94B 400x400 Image Samsung QE43QN94B

The QE43QN94B is a 43 inch 4K TV from Samsung, launched in the year 2022. It comes with a True 10-bit IPS panel with Anti-glare/Matte finish.

It can achieve a max resolution of 3840 x 2160 with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and pixel density of 103 ppi.

Picture Quality

After screen size and resolution, the very next feature of a display that impacts picture quality is Color Gamut.

The Samsung QE43QN94B comes with a DCI P3 coverage of 100%. This is equivalent to 136.36% sRGB. The color quality on this TV should be Lifelike!

What is Color gamut ?

Color gamut specification of a display is a measure of the range of colors that it can display.

A panel with poor color accuracy will produce undersaturated/washed out colors that will spoil the immersion.

Different manufacturers use different units to specify color gamut. Such as — sRGB (standard RGB), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 etc.

As for this TV its color gamut is specified using DCI P3.

But you don't need to worry about that, here is a chart that will help you choosing a TV with good color accuracy.

Color Gamut Chart

After color gamut, next in the list of important specifications that will impact your experience is Static Contrast.

Understanding the static contrast ratio

There are 2 types of contrast specifications for a TV. Static and Dynamic. We are interested in static contrast ratio. Dynamic doesn't matter much.

This specification defines the intensity of black levels. That is, a TV with static contrast ratio less than 1000:1 may produce black images something like this:

Example of a disply with low contrast ratio

Apart from this, such TVs may suffer from backlight bleeds that will impact your experience — as shown below.

Like resolution, the static contrast ratio is also equally responsible for details. To put it into perspective, a TV with low contrast ratio will produce less shades of colors, so lesser detail overall.

If given a choice, I will prefer a FHD TV with high contrast ratio over a 4K TV with low contrast ratio.

This TV comes with a static contrast ratio of 8000:1., good enough to achieve deep blacks and eye-catching visuals. For the record, it also comes with local dimming backlight technology which is a plus.

HDR is also supported on this TV in form of HDR10, HDR10+, HDR10+ Adaptive, HDR10+ Gaming, HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) and Quantum HDR 1500.

Coming to brightness, it is can achieve a peak brightness of 250 nits. The backlight used on the panel is Mini LED.

Gaming Performance

If you are not into gaming, you can safely ignore these specs. But if you are also going to use the TV for gaming or use it as a PC monitor, make sure to take a TV that features the lowest input lag and response time.

The input lag on this TV is 6.5 ms and its minimum response time is N/A. For a TV, its the best you can get for gaming.

Understanding Input lag and response time

This lag is the latency at which your key-presses or mouse movements changes the content of your display. For casual Non-FPS games, input lag doesn't matter much.

But ideally, get a TV that has an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.

Dimensions and Ergonomics

The TV measures 43 inches vertically and 37.83 inches horizontally.

Coming to thickness, it is 1 inches thick.

Overall the TV weighs around 13.8 kgs including stand. Without stand, it weighs 9.2 Kgs.

Now, speaking of ergonomics — If you plan to wall mount the TV, you can make use of the VESA mount provided with this TV, which by the way has an interface size of 200 x 200 mm. Swivel, Tilt or Pivot features are not supported on this unit.

Hardware and Audio

The TV comes with a Quad Core CPU. However, we could'nt find any specification on the total RAM on the TV's specsheet.

To power its UI, the TV runs Tizen 6.5 Operating System.

For display connectivity, Samsung has provided four HDMI 2.1 ports on this TV.

For connecting USB devices, it includes two USB 2.0 ports. Other connectivity ports include — 1x Satellite In (F-type female), 1x CI+ 1.4, 1x Antenna (RF) (female), 1x Satellite In (Sub — F-type female) and 1x Ethernet RJ45.

For connecting to this TV wirelessly, you will have — Wi-Fi (5Ghz + 2.5Ghz), Wifi-Direct, Bluetooth and DLNA.

Speaking of speakers, it is packaged with 2 x 10W built-in speakers.

Now, coming to power usage, the TV uses 60W on average and 0.5W on standby.

For powering this unit, you will require either a 110V or 220V outlet @ 50Hz-60Hz.
