The QE55Q60B is a 55 inch 4K TV from Samsung. It was launched in 2022. It features a 10-bit VA panel.
The max. resolution it can achieve is 3840 x 2160 with a refresh rate of 60 Hz and a pixel density of 80 ppi.
After screen size and resolution, the next most important spec of a display is its Color Reproduction Accuracy (defined by its color gamut specification).
Speaking of which, this TV features 100% DCI P3 color gamut coverage. This is equivalent to 136.36% sRGB coverage. The color accuracy on this TV should be Lifelike!
Understanding the Color Gamut Specification
Color gamut spec of a display indicates the range of colors that it can display.
A panel with poor color accuracy will produce undersaturated colors that will not be pretty to look at.
Different manufacturers use different measurement standards to define color gamut. Viz — sRGB (most popular), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 to name a few.
For example, the color gamut of this TV is specified using DCI P3.
But don't worry, below is a chart that you can use to choose a TV with good color accuracy.
After color gamut, next in the list of important specifications is Static Contrast.
What is Static Contrast ratio ?
A TV with low static contrast ratio will not produce deep enough blacks and can bleed backlight as shown in the images below:The image is an example of another display, it is not this one
The above TV's static contrast is 800:1. So make sure you get a TV with a static contrast of >= 1000:1. More is better.
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 show both dark gray and black as black, thus lesser detail overall.
If given a choice, always prefer a FHD TV with high contrast ratio over a 4K TV with low contrast ratio.
This TV features a static contrast ratio of 8000:1., good enough to produce deep blacks. The panel comes with local dimming backlight technology which is a plus.
HDR10, HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma), HDR10+, HDR10+ Adaptive and Quantum HDR are also supported on this TV.
As for brightness, it can go as bright as 250 nits. The backlight used on the panel is Edge LED.
If you are not planning to game on this TV, you can safely ignore these specifications. But if you are also planning to use the TV for playing games or use it as a PC monitor, make sure to get a TV that features the lowest input lag and response time.
Unfortunately, there is no specification for input lag on this TV. But as this is not a cheap TV from Samsung, input lag on this TV could be 20ms or below.
Understanding Input lag and response time
This lag is the amount of time at which your inputs changes the content of the screen. Though, this won't matter much if you aren't into competitive/FPS games like call of duty.
Although for better experience, look for a TV that has an input lag and response time of < 20ms.
