The QE55QN95B is a 55 inch 4K TV from Samsung, launched in the year 2022. It comes with a True 10-bit IPS panel with Anti-glare/Matte finish. It can display a max resolution of 3840 x 2160 with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and pixel density of 80 ppi.
After screen size and resolution, the next important feature to look for in a display is its Color Reproduction (defined by its color gamut specification).
The Samsung QE55QN95B is rated with a 100% DCI P3 color gamut coverage — equivalent to 136.36% sRGB. The color accuracy on this TV will be Lifelike!
Understanding Color Gamut
Color gamut spec of a display is the measurement of the range of colors that it can display.
Meaning, this specification determines the ability of a TV to produce accurate colors. A display with low gamut coverage will miss out on some colors (such as deep red), so the image produced will look "washed out" in colors.
It is specified in different units - sRGB(most popular), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 to name a few.
In case of this TV, its color gamut is specified in DCI P3.
But don't worry, here is a chart that you can use to choose a TV with good color accuracy.
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 blacks and may bleed backlight as in the images below:The 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 the better.
Like resolution, the static contrast ratio is also equally responsible for details. To put it into perspective, a TV with low contrast ratio will produce less shades of colors, so lesser detail overall.
This TV features a static contrast ratio of 8000:1., enough to achieve deep blacks and eye-catching visuals. For the record, it also comes with local dimming backlight technology which is a plus.
HDR10, HDR10+, HDR10+ Adaptive, HDR10+ Gaming, HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) and Quantum HDR 2000 are also supported on this TV.
Coming to brightness, it is can achieve a peak luminance of 250 nits with the help of Mini LED backlight.
Now if you are going to use your TV other than watching videos — say as a PC monitor or for gaming purposes, you would want to take a TV that features the lowest input lag. For gaming however, both the input lag and response time impacts the performance.
The input lag on the Samsung QE55QN95B is 6 ms and its minimum response time is N/A. Pick this one if you are a gamer.
What is Input lag ?
This lag is the latency at which your key-presses or mouse movements changes the content of the TV. Though, this won't matter much if you aren't into competitive/FPS games like call of duty.
Although for better experience, get a TV that features an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.
