Launched in the year 2022, the UE75BU8000 is a 75" 4K TV from Samsung. It comes with a 10-bit VA, IPS-ADS panel. The max. resolution it can achieve is 3840 x 2160 @ 60 Hz with a pixel density of 59 ppi.
After screen size and resolution, the next important spec to look for in a display is its Color Reproduction, which is defined by its color gamut specification.
This TV doesn't provide a color gamut specification, so we have to take a guess.
As this TV features a big 75 inch screen, it won't come with a cheap panel, so here we can assume its equivalent sRGB coverage to be 90-100% or above. Undoubtedly The color quality on this TV will be Lifelike! It will produce accurate colors.
Understanding Color Gamut
Color gamut spec of a display is a measure of the range of colors that the TV can display.
A display with poor color reproduction will produce undersaturated colors that will spoil the immersion.
It is specified in different units - sRGB,sRGB (standard RGB), NTSC, DCI P3 to name a few. It is upto the manufacturer which one they choose.
But don't worry, below is a chart that will help you choosing a TV with good color accuracy.
Other than color accuracy, you should look at the static contrast specification as it impacts the picture quality substantially.
Why its important?
Static contrast ratio of a TV corresponds to its Black levels. A Display with low static contrast ratio (less than 1000:1) will not produce deep blacks. Also, such TVs may suffer from backlight bleeds such as this:The image is an example of another display, it is not this one
Clearly this will affect your experience considerably, especially in a dark room.
Think of static contrast as another dimension to details — just like resolution. To put it into perspective, a TV with low contrast ratio will produce less shades of colors, thus 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 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 which is a plus.
HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma), HDR10+, HDR and HDR10 are also supported on this TV.
Coming to brightness, the peak luminance the TV can produce is 250 nits. The backlight of this TV is powered by Edge LED technology.
If you are planning to use a TV other than watching videos — say as a PC monitor or for gaming purposes, you should take a TV that features the lowest input lag. For gaming however, both the input lag and response time affects the performance.
The input lag on this TV is 8 ms and its minimum response time is N/A. For a TV, its the best you can get for gaming.
What is Input Lag and Why it matters ?
This lag is the amount of time at which key-presses or mouse movements changes the content of your TV. For casual Non-FPS games, input lag doesn't matter much.
But ideally, get a TV that comes with an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.
Ergonomics and Dimensions
Coming to 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 400 x 400 mm. There is no Swivel, Tilt or Pivot feature support in this TV.
The TV measures 75 inches vertically and 66 inches horizontally.
