Launched in the year 2022, the QE65QN90B is a 65" 4K TV from Samsung. It features a True 10-bit IPS panel with Anti-glare/Matte finish. The max. resolution it can achieve is 3840 x 2160 @ 120 Hz with a pixel density of 68 ppi.

Picture Quality

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

Speaking of which, this TV features a DCI P3 color gamut coverage of 100%, which is equivalent to 136.36% sRGB coverage. The color quality on this TV will be Lifelike!

Understanding Color Gamut

Color gamut spec 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 spoil the immersion.

Different manufacturers use different units to define color gamut. Such as — sRGB (standard RGB), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 Adobe RGB and rec.2020.

In case of this TV, its color gamut is specified using 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, next in the list of important specifications that will impact your experience is Static Contrast.

What is Static Contrast ratio ?

There are two types of contrast specifications for a TV. Static and Dynamic. We are interested in static contrast ratio. Dynamic doesn't matter much.

Static contrast defines the intensity of black levels. That is, a TV with static contrast ratio less than 1000:1 may produce black images something like this:

Example of a disply with low contrast ratio

Note that, such TVs are likely be prone to backlight bleeds that will impact your experience — as shown below.

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, 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 comes with a static contrast ratio of 8000:1., well enough to display deep blacks. The panel comes with local dimming 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 2000.

As for brightness, it can go as bright as 250 nits. The panel of this TV is powered by Mini LED backlight.

Gaming Performance

Now if you are planning to use a TV other than using it as a TV — like as a PC monitor or Gaming, make sure to get a TV with lowest input lag. For gaming, both the input lag and response time impacts the performance.

The input lag on the Samsung QE65QN90B is 6 ms and its minimum response time is N/A. For a TV, its the best you can get for gaming.

What is Input lag ?

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.

Although for better experience, get a TV that has an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.

Ergonomics and Dimensions

Now, 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 400 x 300 mm. The unit doesn't come with either Swivel, Tilt or Pivot support.

The vertical and horizontal measurements of this TV are 56.94 inches and 35 inches respectively. It is just 1 inches thick.

In total the TV weighs around 31.4 kilograms (including stand). Without stand, it weighs 24.4 KGs.
