Launched in the year 2022, the QE65QN900B is a 65" 8K TV from Samsung. It comes with a True 10-bit VA panel with Anti-glare/Matte finish. The maximum resolution it can display is 7680 x 4320 with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a pixel density of 136 ppi.
After screen size and resolution, the next most important specification to look for in a display is its Color Reproduction Accuracy (defined by its color gamut specification).
This TV is rated with a 100% DCI P3 color gamut coverage. Incase you're wondering, this is equivalent to 136.36% sRGB coverage. The color accuracy on this TV will be Lifelike!
What Color Gamut means ?
Color gamut spec of a TV is the measurement of the range of colors that it can show.
A TV with poor color reproduction will produce washed out colors that will spoil your immersive experience.
Different manufacturers use different units to specify color gamut. Viz — sRGB (most popular), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 Adobe RGB and rec.2020.
As for this TV it is specified using DCI P3.
But you don't need to worry about that, here is a chart that will help you choosing a TV with good color accuracy.
Other than color accuracy, the static contrast of a TV also impacts its picture quality.
Understanding the static contrast ratio of a TV
Static contrast ratio of a TV corresponds to its Black levels. A Display with low static contrast ratio (less than 1000:1) will not produce deep blacks. Apart from this, such displays are likely to suffer from backlight bleeds such as below:The image is an example of another display, it is not this one
Needless to say, this will rob your viewing experience considerably, especially in a dark room.
Also, a TV with high constrast ratio lets you to see more details. So, resolution and static contrast ratio go hand in hand in a sense.
This TV features a static contrast ratio of 10000:1., good enough to achieve deep blacks and eye-catching visuals. For the record, it also comes with local dimming backlight technology which is a plus.
HDR is also supported on this TV in form of HDR10, HDR10+, HDR10+ Adaptive, HDR10+ Gaming, HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) and Quantum HDR 3000.
Coming to brightness, it is can produce a maximum luminance of 250 nits. The backlight used on the panel is Mini LED.
If you are not into gaming, you can ignore these specifications. But if you are also planning to use the TV for gaming or use it as a PC monitor, you would want to get a TV with the lowest input lag and response time.
The input lag on the Samsung QE65QN900B 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 amount of time at which your key-presses or mouse movements changes the content of the screen. For casual Non-FPS games, input lag doesn't matter much.
For best of both worlds, get a TV that comes with an input lag and response time of < 20ms.
Ergonomics and Dimensions
Now, coming to ergonomics — a VESA mount with interface size of 400 x 300 mm is provided for wall-mounting. Swivel, Tilt or Pivot features are not supported on this unit.
