ABOUT THIS TV

Samsung QN43Q60B 400x400 Image Samsung QN43Q60B

Launched in the year 2022, the QN43Q60B is a 43" 4K TV from Samsung. It comes with a 10-bit VA panel. The maximum resolution it can display is 3840 x 2160 @ 60 Hz with a pixel density of 103 ppi.

Picture Quality

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

The Samsung QN43Q60B comes with a DCI P3 coverage of 100%. This is equivalent to 136.36% sRGB coverage. The color quality on this TV should be Lifelike!

Understanding Color Gamut

Color gamut spec of a TV is a measure of the range of colors that the display can show.

In other words, this specification indicates the ability of a TV to produce accurate colors. A panel with low gamut coverage will miss out on some colors (such as deep red), thus producing a "washed out" picture.

It is specified in different units - sRGB,sRGB (standard RGB), NTSC, DCI P3 to name a few. It is upto the manufacturer which one they choose.

As for this TV its color gamut is specified in DCI P3.

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

Color Gamut Chart

After color gamut, next in the list of important specifications that will impact your experience is Static Contrast.

Understanding the static contrast specification

A TV with low static contrast ratio will not produce deep blacks and possibly bleed backlight as shown 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. More is better.

Think of static contrast as another dimension to details — just like resolution. To put it into perspective, a TV with low contrast ratio will show both dark gray and black as black, 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 features a static contrast ratio of 8000:1., well enough to achieve deep blacks and eye-catching visuals. For the record, it also comes with local dimming technology which is a plus.

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

Coming to brightness, the peak luminance it can produce is 250 nits. The backlight used on the panel is Edge LED.

Gaming Performance

If you are planning to use your TV just for content consumption, you can ignore these specifications. But if you are also going to use the TV for playing games or use it as a PC monitor, you should get a TV with the lowest input lag and response time.

Sadly, there is no specification for input lag on this TV. Now, since this is not a cheap TV, we can expect an input lag of less than 20ms.

What is Input Lag and Why it matters ?

This lag is the amount of time at which key-presses/mouse movements changes the content of the screen. For casual Non-FPS games, input lag doesn't matter much.

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

Dimensions and Ergonomics

The vertical and horizontal measurements of this TV are 38 inches and 24.56 inches respectively. Coming to thickness, it is just 1 inches thick.

It weighs approximately 8.1 KGs and 0.6 kgs extra if you include stand.

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 200 x 200 mm. There is no Swivel, Tilt or Pivot feature support on this TV.

Hardware and Audio

The internals of this TV is powered by a 4-Core CPU. There is no mention about the total available RAM on the TV's specsheet.

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

For display connectivity, there are three HDMI 2.0 ports on this TV.

For connecting USB devices, it includes two USB 2.0 ports. Other connectivity ports include — 1x Cable/Antenna In (F-type female), 1x RS232 (C) and 1x Ethernet RJ45.

For connecting to this TV wirelessly, you will have — a 5Ghz Wi-Fi, 2.5 Ghz Wi-Fi, Wifi-Direct, Bluetooth and DLNA.

The Audio unit of this TV is powered by 2 x 10W built-in speakers.

As for power consumption, on average, it consumes about 78 watts and on standby, it takes 0.5 watts.

For powering this unit, you'll need an 100 V - 120 V/50 Hz - 60 Hz outlet.
