ABOUT THIS TV

Samsung QE55QN700B 400x400 Image Samsung QE55QN700B

The QE55QN700B is a 55 inch 8K TV from Samsung, launched in the year 2022. It comes with a True 10-bit IPS panel with Anti-glare/Matte finish. The maximum resolution it can display is 7680 x 4320 with a refresh rate of 60 Hz and a pixel density of 161 ppi.

Picture Quality

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

The Samsung QE55QN700B features 100% DCI P3 color gamut coverage, which is equivalent to 136.36% sRGB coverage. The color accuracy on this TV should be Lifelike!

Understanding the Color Gamut Specification

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

A display with poor color accuracy will produce undersaturated/washed out colors that will not be pretty to look at.

It is specified in different units - sRGB(most popular), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 to name a few. It is upto the manufacturer which one they choose.

For example, the color gamut of this TV is specified in DCI P3.

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

Color Gamut Chart

Now, after color gamut, the static contrast of a TV similarly impacts its picture quality.

Understanding Static Contrast

A TV with low static contrast ratio will not produce deep enough blacks and possibly can bleed backlight as shown 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 800:1. So make sure you get a TV with a static contrast of >= 1000:1. Ofcourse, More the better.

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, 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 features a static contrast ratio of 10000:1., well enough to achieve deep blacks. For the record, it also comes with local dimming feature which is a plus.

HDR10, HDR10+, HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma), HDR10+ Adaptive, HDR10+ Gaming and Quantum HDR 2000 are also supported on this TV.

As for brightness, the peak luminance it can achieve is 250 nits. The backlight used on the panel is Mini LED.

Gaming Performance

If you are planning to use your TV solely for content consumption, you can ignore these specs. But if you are also planning to use the TV for playing games or use it as a PC monitor, you should get a TV that features the lowest input lag and response time.

The input lag on the Samsung QE55QN700B is 6.5 ms and its minimum response time is N/A. Gamers will love this TV.

What is Input Lag and Why it matters ?

This lag is the amount of time at which 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.

But ideally, look for a TV that features an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.

Dimensions and Ergonomics

The vertical and horizontal measurements of this TV are 48.22 inches and 30.54 inches respectively. It is 0.7 inches thick. It weighs approximately 16.6 kilograms and 7.8 kgs extra including stand. So plan your space accordingly.
