ABOUT THIS TV

Samsung QN50Q60B 400x400 Image Samsung QN50Q60B

Launched in the year 2022, the QN50Q60B is a 50" 4K TV from Samsung. It comes with a 10-bit VA panel. It can achieve a max resolution of 3840 x 2160 with a refresh rate of 60 Hz and pixel density of 89 ppi.

Picture Quality

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

This TV features a DCI P3 color gamut coverage of 100%. Incase you're wondering, this is equivalent to 136.36% sRGB coverage. The color accuracy on this TV should be Lifelike!

Understanding Color Gamut

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

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

It is specified in different units - sRGB(most popular), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 Adobe RGB, rec.2020.

For example, the color gamut of this TV is specified using 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

Now, after color gamut, you should look at the static contrast specification as it influences the picture quality substantially.

Understanding the static contrast ratio

There are two types of contrast specifications for a TV. Static and Dynamic. We are interested in static contrast ratio as dynamic doesn't matter much.

Static contrast specification defines the intensity of black levels. That is, a TV with SC ratio less than 1000:1 will produce black images something like this:

Example of a disply with low contrast ratio

Apart from this, such TVs are also prone backlight bleeds that will affect your experience — as shown below.

Like resolution, the static contrast ratio is also equally responsible for details. To put it into perspective, a TV with low contrast ratio will produce less shades of colors, so lesser detail overall.

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., good enough to achieve deep blacks. The panel 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, it is capable of producing a peak luminance of 250 nits, powered by Edge LED backlight.

Gaming Performance

If you aren't planning to game on this TV, you can 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 get a TV with the lowest input lag and response time.

Sadly, we cannot find the input lag specification for this unit. 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 amount of time at which your device inputs changes the content of your TV. Though, this won't matter much if you aren't into competitive/FPS games like call of duty.

Although for better experience, look for a TV that comes with an input lag and response time of < 20ms.

Ergonomics and Dimensions

Now, speaking of ergonomics — VESA mount is supported on this TV with an interface size of 200 x 200 mm. Swivel, Tilt or Pivot features are not supported on this unit.

The vertical and horizontal measurements of this TV are 44 inches and 27.93 inches respectively.

It is just 1 inches thick.

It weighs approximately 10.7 kgs, another 0.7 kgs including stand. So plan your space accordingly.

Hardware and Audio

The Samsung QN50Q60B comes with a 4-Core CPU. However, Samsung didn't provide any specification on the RAM on the TV's official specsheet.

Speaking of OS, the Samsung QN50Q60B runs Tizen 6.5 Operating System.

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

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

Wireless connectivity options on the Samsung QN50Q60B include Wi-Fi (5Ghz + 2.5Ghz), Wifi-Direct, Bluetooth and DLNA.

Coming to audio, it is packaged with 2 x 10W speakers.

Now, coming to power consumption, on average, it uses around 87 watts and on standby, it takes 0.5 watts.

It supports a power outlet of 100 V - 120 V/50 Hz - 60 Hz.
