The QN60Q60B is a 60 inch 4K TV from Samsung. It was launched in 2022. It comes with a 10-bit VA panel.
The max. resolution it can display is 3840 x 2160 with a refresh rate of 60 Hz and a pixel density of 73 ppi.
After screen size and resolution, the very next specification of a display that will impact your viewing experience is Color Gamut.
The Samsung QN60Q60B features 100% DCI P3 color gamut coverage. Incase you're wondering, this is equivalent to 136.36% sRGB coverage. The color quality on this TV will be Lifelike!
What Color Gamut means ?
Color gamut specification of a display is the measurement of the range of colors that the TV can display.
What this means is, this specification indicates 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), the result would be a "washed out" picture quality.
It is specified in different units - sRGB,sRGB (standard RGB), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 Adobe RGB, rec.2020.
In case of this TV, it is specified in DCI P3.
But don't worry, below is a chart that you can use to choose a TV with good color accuracy.
After color gamut, the static contrast ratio of a TV has equally important role in picture quality.
Understanding Static Contrast
A TV with low static contrast ratio will not produce deep enough blacks and may bleed backlight as below:The 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 the better.
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, always prefer a FHD TV with high contrast ratio over a 4K TV with low contrast ratio.
This TV comes with a static contrast ratio of 8000:1., well enough to display deep blacks. For the record, it also comes with local dimming backlight which is a plus.
HDR is also supported on this TV in form of HDR10, HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma), HDR10+, HDR10+ Adaptive and Quantum HDR.
Coming to brightness, it is can produce a peak luminance of 250 nits, powered by Edge LED backlight technology.
If you are not into gaming, you can ignore these specs. But if you are also going to use the TV for playing games or use it as a PC monitor, make sure to get a TV that features the lowest input lag and response time.
Unfortunately, we cannot find the input lag specification for this unit. But since this is not a cheap TV, 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 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, look for a TV that features an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.
