Picture Quality

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

Speaking of which, this TV is rated with a 100% DCI P3 color gamut coverage, which is equivalent to 136.36% sRGB. The color quality on this TV should be Lifelike!

What is Color gamut ?

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

Put Simply, this specification determines the ability of a TV to produce accurate colors. A display with low gamut coverage will miss out on some colors (such as deep red), the result would be a "washed out" picture quality.

Different manufacturers use different measurement standards to define color gamut. Such as — sRGB (standard RGB), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 etc.

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

But don't worry, here is a chart that will help you choosing a TV with good color accuracy.

Color Gamut Chart

Next in the list is Static Contrast.

What is Static Contrast ?

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.

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

Example of a disply with low contrast ratio

Moreover, such TVs are likely be prone to backlight bleeds that will affect your experience — as shown below.

Note that, 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 produce less shades of colors, so lesser detail overall.

This TV features a static contrast ratio of 10000:1., enough to display deep blacks and eye-catching visuals. The panel comes with local dimming backlight technology which is a plus.

HDR10, HDR10+, HDR10+ Adaptive, HDR10+ Gaming, HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) and Quantum HDR 64X are also supported on this TV, so that's a plus.

Coming to brightness, the peak luminance the TV can produce is 250 nits. The backlight of this TV is powered by Mini LED technology.

Gaming Performance

If you are planning to use your TV solely for content consumption, you can safely ignore these specs. But if you are also planning to use the TV for playing games or use it as a PC monitor, make sure to take a TV with the lowest input lag and response time.

The input lag on the Samsung QN85QN900B is 6 ms and its minimum response time is N/A. Gamers will love this TV.

What is Input lag ?

This lag is the amount of time at which key-presses/mouse movements 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, look for a TV that has an input lag and response time of < 20ms.

Ergonomics and Dimensions

Now, 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 600 x 400 mm. The unit doesn't come with either Swivel, Tilt or Pivot support.

The TV measures 85 inches vertically and 73.88 inches horizontally.

Coming to thickness, it is just 0.61 inches thick. Overall this TV weighs around 54.8 Kgs including its stand. Without stand, it weighs 43.8 kgs. So plan your space accordingly.
