ABOUT THIS TV

Samsung QE55Q80B 400x400 Image Samsung QE55Q80B

The QE55Q80B is a 55 inch 4K TV from Samsung, launched in the year 2022. It features a 10-bit IPS panel with Anti-glare/Matte finish. The maximum resolution it can achieve is 3840 x 2160 with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a pixel density of 80 ppi.

Picture Quality

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

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

Understanding Color Gamut

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

Put Simply, it indicates the ability of a display to produce accurate colors. A TV with low color gamut coverage will miss out on some colors (such as deep red), so the image produced will look "washed out" in colors.

Different manufacturers use different units to define color gamut. Viz — sRGB (most popular), NTSC, DCI P3 Adobe RGB and rec.2020.

As for this TV it is specified in DCI P3.

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

Color Gamut Chart

After color gamut, the static contrast specification of a TV holds almost equal role in picture quality.

Understanding Static Contrast

A TV with low static contrast ratio will not produce deep enough blacks and may bleed backlight as in the below image:

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

The above TV's static contrast is rated 800:1. So make sure you get a TV with a static contrast of >= 1000:1. More the better.

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

This TV comes with a static contrast ratio of 8000:1., enough to display deep blacks. For the record, it also comes with local dimming technology which is a plus.

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

As for brightness, it is capable of producing a peak luminance of 250 nits, which is powered by Direct LED (Full-Array Local Dimming) backlight.

Gaming Performance

If you are going to use a TV other than watching videos — like as a PC monitor or Gaming, you should get a TV that features the lowest input lag. For gaming however, both the input lag and response time affects the performance.

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

What is Input lag ?

This lag is the amount of time at which your 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 less than 20ms.

Dimensions and Ergonomics

The TV measures 55 inches vertically and 48.3 inches horizontally.

Speaking of thickness, it is just 2.2 inches thick.

It weighs 18.0 Kgs and 3 kgs extra if you include stand.

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.
