Samsung QE50Q60B 400x400 Image Samsung QE50Q60B

The QE50Q60B is a 50 inch 4K TV from Samsung. It was launched in 2022. It features a 10-bit VA panel. The max. resolution it can display is 3840 x 2160 @ 60 Hz with a pixel density of 89 ppi.

Picture Quality

After screen size and resolution, the next important feature of a display is its Color Reproduction (defined by its color gamut specification).

This TV comes with a DCI P3 gamut coverage of 100%, which is equivalent to 136.36% sRGB. The color quality on this TV will be Lifelike!

What is Color gamut ?

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

What this means is, it determines the ability of a display to produce accurate colors. A panel with low gamut coverage will miss out on some colors (such as deep red), the result would be a "washed out" picture quality.

Different manufacturers use different units to specify color gamut. Such as — sRGB (most popular), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 to name a few.

In case of this TV, it is specified using DCI P3.

But don't worry, here is a chart that you can use to choose a TV with good color accuracy.

Color Gamut Chart

Other than color accuracy, the static contrast specification of a TV holds almost equal role in picture quality.

What is Static Contrast ratio ?

A TV with low static contrast ratio will not produce deep blacks and may bleed backlight as shown below:

Backlight bleed exampleThe image is an example of another display, it is not this one

The static contrast ratio of above TV is 800:1. So make sure you get a TV with a static contrast of >= 1000:1. Ofcourse, More is better.

Also, a TV with high constrast ratio lets you to see more details. So, resolution and static contrast ratio go hand in hand in a sense.

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

HDR10, HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma), HDR10+, HDR10+ Adaptive and Quantum HDR are also supported on this TV, so that's a plus.

As for brightness, it is can achieve a peak brightness of 250 nits with the help of Edge LED backlight.

Gaming Performance

If you are planning to use your TV solely for content consumption, you can safely ignore these specifications. But if you are also going to use the TV for gaming or use it as a PC monitor, you would want to take a TV that features the lowest input lag and response time.

Sadly, Samsung did not specify the input lag on this unit. Now, since this is not a cheap TV, input lag on this TV could be 20ms or below.

What is Input Lag and Why it matters ?

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

Although for better experience, look for a TV that has an input lag and response time of < 20ms.

Ergonomics and Dimensions

Coming to ergonomics — a VESA mount with interface size of 200 x 200 mm is provided for wall-mounting. The unit doesn't come with either Swivel, Tilt or Pivot support.

The TV measures 50 inches vertically and 44 inches horizontally. Speaking of thickness, it is 1 inches thick.
