ABOUT THIS TV

Samsung QE85Q80B 400x400 Image Samsung QE85Q80B

The QE85Q80B is a 85 inch 4K TV from Samsung. It was launched in 2022. It comes with a 10-bit VA panel with Anti-glare/Matte finish.

The max. resolution it can display is 3840 x 2160 @ 120 Hz with a pixel density of 52 ppi.

Picture Quality

After screen size and resolution, the next important feature of a display that defines picture quality is its Color Gamut.

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

Understanding Color Gamut

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

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

Different manufacturers use different units to define color gamut. Viz — sRGB, NTSC 1953, DCI P3 etc.

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.

Color Gamut Chart

After color gamut, the static contrast of a TV also impacts its picture quality.

Understanding the static contrast specification

A TV with low static contrast ratio will not produce deep 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 rated 800:1. So make sure you get a TV with a static contrast of >= 1000:1. Ofcourse, More the better.

Other than black levels, a TV with high constrast ratio lets you to see more details. So, resolution and static contrast ratio go hand in hand.

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 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, HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma), HDR10+, HDR10+ Adaptive, HDR10+ Gaming and Quantum HDR 1500.

As for brightness, the peak brightness the Samsung QE85Q80B can achieve is 250 nits. The panel of this TV is powered by Direct LED (Full-Array Local Dimming) backlight.

Gaming Performance

Now if you are planning to use your TV other than watching videos — say as a PC monitor or for gaming purposes, you should take a TV with lowest input lag. For gaming, both the input lag and response time affects the performance.

Unfortunately, there is no specification for input lag on this TV. Now, as 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 key-presses or mouse movements changes the content of the screen. Though, this won't matter much if you aren't into competitive/FPS games like call of duty.

For best of both worlds, get a TV that features an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.

The width of this TV is 74.5 inches while its height is 45.8 inches.

Coming to thickness, it is just 2.2 inches thick. It weighs around 43.32 Kgs and 6.8 kgs extra including stand.

Now, speaking of ergonomics — a VESA mount with interface size of 600 x 400 mm is provided for wall-mounting. However, there is no Swivel, Tilt or Pivot feature support on this TV.
