ABOUT THIS TV

Samsung QE85QN90B 400x400 Image Samsung QE85QN90B

The QE85QN90B is a 85 inch 4K TV from Samsung, launched in the year 2022. It features a True 10-bit VA panel with Anti-glare/Matte finish. The max. resolution it can display is 3840 x 2160 with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a pixel density of 52 ppi.

Picture Quality

After screen size and resolution, the next important specification to look for in a display is its Color Reproduction (defined by its color gamut specification).

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

Understanding the Color Gamut Specification

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

In other words, it determines the ability of a display to produce accurate colors. A panel with low gamut coverage will miss out on some colors (such as deep red), so the image produced will look "washed out" in colors.

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

For example, the color gamut of this TV is specified in terms of DCI P3.

But don't worry, below is a chart that you can use to choose a TV with good color accuracy.

Color Gamut Chart

Now, after color gamut, you should look at the static contrast specification as it impacts the picture quality the same way.

Understanding Static Contrast

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

Also, static contrast ratio and resolution go hand in hand when it comes to details. To put it into perspective, a TV with low contrast ratio will show both dark gray and black as black, thus lesser detail overall.

This TV features a static contrast ratio of 8000:1., enough to achieve deep blacks and eye-catching visuals. For the record, it also comes with local dimming technology which is a plus.

HDR10, HDR10+, HDR10+ Adaptive, HDR10+ Gaming, HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) and Quantum HDR 2000 are also supported on this TV, so that's a plus.

Coming to brightness, it is capable of producing a peak brightness of 250 nits, which is powered by Mini LED backlight.

Gaming Performance

If you are planning to use your TV only for content consumption, you can safely ignore these specifications. 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 that features the lowest input lag and response time.

The input lag on this TV 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 latency at which 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.

For best of both worlds, get a TV that has an input lag and response time of < 20ms.

Dimensions and Ergonomics

The width of this TV is 74.5 inches while its height is 45 inches.

Coming to thickness, it is just 1 inches thick. Overall this TV weighs approximately 56.7 kilograms including its stand. Without stand, it weighs 44.5 Kgs. So plan your space accordingly.

Now, coming to ergonomics — a VESA mount with interface size of 600 x 400 mm is provided for wall-mounting. The unit doesn't come with either Swivel, Tilt or Pivot support.

Hardware and Audio

The Samsung QE85QN90B comes with a 4-Core CPU. However, Samsung didn't provide any specification on the RAM on this TV.

To power its UI, the TV runs Tizen 6.5 Operating System.

For display connectivity, there are three HDMI 2.0 ports and one HDMI 2.1 port on this TV.

For connecting USB devices, you will have two USB 2.0 ports. Other connectivity ports include — 1x Satellite In (Sub — F-type female), 1x Antenna (RF) (female), 1x Satellite In (F-type female), 1x CI+ 1.4 and 1x Ethernet RJ45.

Wireless connectivity options on this TV include a 5Ghz Wi-Fi, 2.5 Ghz Wi-Fi, Wifi-Direct, Bluetooth and DLNA.

Speaking of speakers, it is packaged with 4 x 5W speakers. It also comes with a built-in sub-woofer. So you don't have to invest on any external sound system.

As for power consumption, this TV consumes 146 watts on average and 0.5 watts on standby.

For powering this unit, you'll need either a 110V or 220V outlet @ 50Hz-60Hz.
