The QN70Q60B is a 70 inch 4K TV from Samsung. It was launched in 2022. It features a 10-bit VA panel. The max. resolution it can achieve is 3840 x 2160 @ 60 Hz with a pixel density of 63 ppi.
After screen size and resolution, the next most important feature to look for in a display is its Color Reproduction Accuracy (defined by its color gamut specification).
The Samsung QN70Q60B features 100% DCI P3 color gamut coverage. This is equivalent to 136.36% sRGB coverage. The color accuracy on this TV should be Lifelike!
Understanding the Color Gamut Specification
Color gamut specification of a TV is a measure of the range of colors that the display can show.
A TV with poor color reproduction will produce undersaturated colors that will spoil your immersive experience.
Different manufacturers use different measurement standards to specify color gamut. Such as — sRGB, NTSC, DCI P3 to name a few.
For example, the color gamut of this TV is specified using DCI P3.
But don't worry, below is a chart that will help you choosing a TV with good color accuracy.
After color gamut, the static contrast of a TV similarly impacts its picture quality.
Understanding the static contrast ratio of a TV
There are 2 types of contrast specifications for a TV. Static and Dynamic. We are interested in static contrast ratio as dynamic doesn't matter much.
This defines the intensity of black levels. That is, a TV with SC ratio less than 1000:1 may produce black images something like this:
Moreover, such TVs are likely to suffer from backlight bleeds that will affect your experience — as shown below.The image is an example of another display, it is not this one
Also note, 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.
If given a choice, always 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 8000:1., enough to achieve deep blacks and eye-catching visuals. For the record, it also comes with local dimming backlight technology 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, the peak luminance the TV can achieve is 250 nits. The backlight used on the panel is Edge LED.
If you are planning to use your TV solely 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 take a TV with the lowest input lag and response time.
Sadly, Samsung did not specify the input lag on this unit. Now, since this is not a cheap TV from Samsung, input lag on this TV could be 20ms or below.
Understanding Input lag and response time
This lag is the latency at which your key-presses or mouse movements changes the content of the 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 less than 20ms.
Dimensions and Ergonomics
The TV measures 70 inches vertically and 61.41 inches horizontally. Speaking of thickness, it is just 1 inches thick. In total, it weighs 28.5 KGs. So plan your space accordingly.
Now, speaking of ergonomics — a VESA mount with interface size of 400 x 300 mm is provided for wall-mounting. Swivel, Tilt or Pivot features are not supported on this unit.
Hardware and Audio
The chipset of this TV is powered by 4-Core CPU. There is no information on the RAM on the TV's official specsheet.
Speaking of OS, the Samsung QN70Q60B runs Tizen 6.5 Operating System.
For display connectivity, Samsung has provided 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.
Wireless connectivity options on the Samsung QN70Q60B include 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 speakers.
Now, coming to power consumption, it consumes 141 watts on average and 0.5 watts on standby.
It supports a power outlet of 100 V - 120 V/50 Hz - 60 Hz.
