Now, the very next specification of a display that impacts picture quality is its Color Gamut.
Speaking of which, this TV is rated with a 100% DCI P3 color gamut coverage, which is equivalent to 136.36% sRGB coverage. The color quality on this TV will be Lifelike!
What Color Gamut means ?
Color gamut specification of a display is a measure of the range of colors that the display can display.
A display with poor color accuracy will produce undersaturated/washed out colors that will spoil your immersive experience.
Different manufacturers use different units to specify color gamut. Such as — sRGB, NTSC 1953, DCI P3 etc.
For example, the color gamut of this TV is specified in 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 specification of a TV has equally important role in picture quality.
Understanding the static contrast ratio of a TV
A TV with low static contrast ratio will not produce deep blacks and possibly 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 rated 800:1. So make sure you get a TV with a static contrast of >= 1000:1. Ofcourse, 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 in a sense.
This TV comes with a static contrast ratio of 8000:1., enough to display deep blacks and eye-catching visuals. The panel comes with local dimming backlight which is a plus.
HDR is also supported on this TV in form of HDR10, HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma), HDR10+, HDR10+ Adaptive, HDR10+ Gaming and Quantum HDR 1500.
Coming to brightness, the peak brightness the Samsung QE75Q80B can produce is 250 nits. The backlight of this TV is powered by Direct LED (Full-Array Local Dimming) technology.
If you are planning to use your TV just for content consumption, you can safely ignore these specifications. But if you are also going to use the TV for gaming or use it as a PC monitor, make sure to get a TV with the lowest input lag and response time.
Unfortunately, there is no specification for input lag on this TV. Now, since this is not a cheap TV from Samsung, input lag on this TV could be 20ms or below.
What is Input Lag and Why it matters ?
This lag is the latency at which your inputs changes the content of the screen. For casual Non-FPS games, input lag doesn't matter much.
But ideally, look for a TV that features an input lag and response time of < 20ms.
Ergonomics and Dimensions
Now, speaking of ergonomics — a VESA mount with interface size of 400 x 400 mm is provided for wall-mounting. Swivel, Tilt or Pivot features are not supported on this unit.
Vertically, the TV measures 75 inches and horizontally 65.8 inches.
Coming to thickness, it is just 2.2 inches thick. It weighs 34.38 Kgs and an additional 5.9 kgs including stand. So plan your space accordingly.
