Picture Quality

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

The Samsung QE50QN94B is rated with a DCI P3 color gamut coverage of 100%, which is equivalent to 136.36% sRGB. The color quality on this TV will be Lifelike!

Understanding Color Gamut

Color gamut specification of a TV is the measurement of the range of colors that the display can display.

Meaning, this specification determines the ability of a TV to produce accurate colors. A TV with low color gamut coverage will miss out on some colors (such as deep red), the result would be a "washed out" picture quality.

It is specified in different units - sRGB,sRGB (standard RGB), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 Adobe RGB, rec.2020. It is upto the manufacturer which one they choose.

As for this TV its color gamut 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

After color gamut, you should look at the static contrast specification as it influences the picture quality substantially.

Understanding the static contrast ratio of a TV

A TV with high enough static contrast ratio will produce deep blacks while a TV with low contrast ratio (<1000:1) will produce images that may look dusty as shown in below image.

Example of a display with low contrast ratio

As you imagine, this will rob your experience considerably.

Also note, static contrast ratio and resolution go hand in hand when it comes to details. To put it into perspective, a TV with low contrast ratio will produce less shades of colors, thus 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., well enough to achieve deep blacks and eye-catching visuals. For the record, it also comes with local dimming backlight which is a plus.

HDR10, HDR10+, HDR10+ Adaptive, HDR10+ Gaming, HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) and Quantum HDR 1500 are also supported on this TV, so that's a plus.

Coming to brightness, the peak brightness the Samsung QE50QN94B can achieve is 250 nits with the help of Mini LED backlight.

Gaming Performance

If you are planning to use a TV other than watching videos — say as a PC monitor or for gaming purposes, you would want to take a TV with lowest input lag. For gaming, both input lag and response time affects the performance.

The input lag on this TV is 6.5 ms and its minimum response time is N/A. You will love this TV if you are a gamer.

Understanding Input lag and response time

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

Although for better experience, get a TV that comes with an input lag and response time of < 20ms.

Dimensions and Ergonomics

The vertical and horizontal measurements of this TV are 43.84 inches and 27.91 inches respectively.

Coming to thickness, it is just 1 inches thick. It weighs approximately 14.0 kgs, another 4.6 kgs if you include stand.

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. However, there is no Swivel, Tilt or Pivot feature support in this TV.

Hardware and Audio

The TV is powered by 4-Core CPU. There is no mention about the total RAM on the TV's specsheet.

The UI on this TV is powered by Tizen 6.5 Operating System.
