Launched in the year 2022, the QE85QN900B is a 85" 8K TV from Samsung. It features a True 10-bit VA panel with Anti-glare/Matte finish. It can achieve a max resolution of 7680 x 4320 with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and pixel density of 104 ppi.

Picture Quality

After screen size and resolution, the very next specification of a display that will impact your viewing experience is Color Gamut.

This TV features 100% DCI P3 color gamut coverage. FYI, this is equivalent to 136.36% sRGB coverage. The color accuracy on this TV will be Lifelike!

Understanding Color Gamut

Color gamut specification of a TV is a measure of the range of colors that it can display.

Meaning, it determines the ability of a TV to produce accurate colors. A TV with low color 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, DCI P3 etc.

As for this TV its color gamut is specified using 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 ratio of a TV

A TV with low static contrast ratio will not produce deep enough blacks and possibly bleed backlight as in the images below:

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. More is better.

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.

If given a choice, I will prefer a FHD TV with high contrast ratio over a 4K TV with low contrast ratio.

This TV is rated with a static contrast ratio of 10000:1., enough to display deep blacks. The panel comes with local dimming backlight 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 4000.

As for brightness, it is capable of producing a peak brightness of 250 nits. The backlight of this TV is powered by Mini LED technology.

Gaming Performance

If you are planning to use your TV only for content consumption, you can safely ignore these specs. But if you are also planning to use the TV for playing games or use it as a PC monitor, you would want to take a TV with the lowest input lag and response time.

The input lag on the Samsung QE85QN900B is 6 ms and its minimum response time is N/A. For a TV, its the best you can get for gaming.

Understanding Input lag and response time

This lag is the amount of time at which your device inputs changes the content of your display. 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 comes with an input lag and response time of < 20ms.

Dimensions and Ergonomics

Vertically, the TV measures 85 inches and horizontally 73.88 inches. Coming to thickness, it is 0.61 inches thick. It weighs approximately 43.8 kgs and an additional 11.0 kgs if you include stand. So plan your space accordingly.

Now, speaking of ergonomics — VESA mount is supported on this TV with an interface size of 600 x 400 mm. The unit doesn't come with Swivel, Tilt or Pivot support.
