The QN85QN95B is a 85 inch 4K TV from Samsung, launched in the year 2022. It comes with a True 10-bit VA panel with Anti-glare/Matte finish. The max. resolution it can display is 3840 x 2160 @ 120 Hz with a pixel density of 52 ppi.
Now, the next important spec of a display that will impact your viewing experience is its Color Gamut.
Speaking of which, this TV is rated with a 100% DCI P3 color gamut coverage. Incase you're wondering, this is equivalent to 136.36% sRGB coverage. The color accuracy on this TV should be Lifelike!
What Color Gamut means ?
Color gamut specification of a display is a measure of the range of colors that the display can produce.
In other words, it tells the ability of a TV to produce accurate colors. A display with low color gamut coverage will miss out on some colors (such as deep red), so the image produced will look "washed out" in colors.
It is specified in different units - sRGB,sRGB (standard RGB), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 Adobe RGB, rec.2020. It is upto the manufacturer which one they choose.
For example, the color gamut of this TV is specified in terms of DCI P3.
But don't worry, here is a chart that will help you choosing a TV with good color accuracy.
Next in the list of important specifications that will impact your experience is Static Contrast.
What is Static Contrast ?
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.
This specification tells the intensity of black levels. That is, a TV with static contrast ratio < 1000:1 may produce black images something like this:
Note that, such TVs are likely be prone to backlight bleeds that will affect your experience — as shown below.The image is an example of another display, it is not this one
Also, a TV with high constrast ratio allows you to see more details. So, resolution and static contrast ratio go hand in hand.
If given a choice, I will 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., good enough to produce deep blacks and eye-catching visuals. For the record, it also comes with local dimming feature which is a plus.
HDR is also supported on this TV in form of HDR10, HDR10+, HDR10+ Adaptive, HDR10+ Gaming, HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) and Quantum HDR 32X.
Coming to brightness, it can go as bright as 250 nits, powered by Mini LED backlight.
If you aren't interested in gaming, you can ignore these specifications. But if you are also planning to use the TV for gaming or use it as a PC monitor, you would want to get a TV that features the lowest input lag and response time.
The input lag on the Samsung QN85QN95B is 6 ms and its minimum response time is N/A. You will love this TV if you are a gamer.
Understanding Input lag and response time
This lag is the latency 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, get a TV that has an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.
Dimensions and Ergonomics
Vertically, the TV measures 85 inches and horizontally 74.57 inches.
It is 0.7 inches thick.
It weighs 43.4 kilograms and an additional 11.0 kgs including stand.
