We all look for quality in a television, therefore, we must check what the important brands offer, for example, Samsung has been creating valuable models for years in each range they offer. Obviously there are exceptions, however, they are constantly improving so that the TVs with low quality are minimal. In this article we will analyze what the Samsung Q60B offers , an option with interesting features within the current mid-range. However, it is important to consider that this model has a high cost.

Exterior design of the Samsung QE55Q60BAUXXC

Aesthetically we receive an attractive television that fits quite well in almost any environment

Let’s start talking about the design that the Samsung QE55Q60BAUXXC delivers , which consists of a detailed construction that seeks to offer an interesting physical aspect. This version has a size of 55 inches, therefore, it is a good option for medium-sized rooms.

It has a black chassis that integrates well with any type of decoration, although to offer a good view we require proper placement. Fortunately, its dimensions allow it to be a simple task, since it does not take up too much space, although that is due to its construction.

The central base allows it to be placed on almost any surface for proper stability, however, it is more feasible to purchase the VESA mount and place the TV directly on the wall. This is quite common, however, the support is not included  and  will be an extra expense .

Aesthetically we highlight its front that implements a thin frame generating elegance for a more complete view of the screen, in fact, we will have a useful space of 94% . But the benefit it offers is focused on the subject of the image. Of course, we observe a minimalist style.

The back of the Samsung 55Q60B has a more tidy space and is not as bulky as is often seen in other models. So we get a slim look from any angle. There really is no disadvantage regarding the design, therefore, it is a positive point.

Connectivity

It offers up to three HDMI 2.0 that we can connect devices and send their signal to the TV. We have done tests with computers and consoles and in both cases we received an acceptable performance. The same happens with its two USB 2.0  that allow you to play and record any content.

They also put at your disposal connections such as an  Ethernet port , an  optical audio output  ,  a  satellite input  and an  RF –  type  antenna . The TV tuners that this model integrates are  DVB-T2/C/S2 , obviously it also works with the first generation tuners.

Now let’s talk about the wireless section that seems quite complete to us due to the inclusion of  Wi-Fi Direct  to connect to the internet from a distance. However, the most attractive thing is its  Bluetooth 5.2,  which by version provides better stability. For streaming we have  DLNA .

Image quality and functions in general of the Samsung QE55Q60B

The Samsung QE55Q60B does not offer such a good image, in fact, there will be advantages and disadvantages, but we will talk about them below. First of all, it implements a 4K resolution that by power seeks to show better details and expose them realistically.

However, it is not fully achieved by an Edge LED backlight that we believe is the least remarkable on this subject, mainly because its lighting ends up being imprecise, which directly affects when we are in very dark or bright environments.

So, the placement can play an important role if we want to avoid some of these quality losses. Another major drawback is that its black levels are low, which directly affects contrast. Mention that it has a type of VA matrix  that improves certain aspects.

Proof of this is that we get a somewhat more comfortable viewing of dark scenes, so there will not be so many light leaks from the sides. Now we enjoy higher levels of contrast  and  brightness , so now the blacks and whites are displayed in a bit more pure.

However, it also has negative points such as a viewing angle that suffers some loss of sharpness and colors that are transmitted with less fidelity and precision. The good thing about this television is that it includes certain enhancement technologies that help in certain essential parameters.

Here we enjoy features like  Quantum Dot ,  Auto Motion Plus ,  Digital Clean View  and  Noise Reduction  each do a solid job of enhancing your viewing experience. It has a frequency of 60 Hz that works well, however, in scenes with a lot of action it presents difficulties.

Sound

It seems to be one of the main weak points, since we only have two speakers with a total power of  20W ,  which is usually normal in the mid-range, however, currently the content is more demanding, therefore, we require a slightly better quality. .

Unlike other slightly more basic models, this one has the benefit of integrating improvements such as  Adaptive Sound ,  Dolby Digital Plus ,  OTS Lite  and  Q-Symphony  that seek to provide a more immersive and precise experience, but to avoid complications we recommend purchasing a sound bar .

Software analysis / Smart TV and more features of the Samsung 55Q60B

One of the main attractions of this model is that it has an excellent system that is packed with many features.

The Samsung QE55Q60B offers the most recent version of Tizen, an exclusive system for these televisions that stands out for its optimization and security, likewise, it provides an extensive application store where we will find all kinds of options for your training.

Handle excellent voice control by working with up to three popular assistants like Google Assistant ,  Amazon Alexa  and  Bixby . As if that were not enough, we find exclusive functions, which allow us to improve the user experience with various applications.

The most valuable are  Ambient Mode ,  MultiView ,  SmartThings ,  and  TV Plus . Many think that this television will not be used to play, however, we note the opposite, yes, there will be certain limitations. But thanks to technologies such as Game Motion Plus  and  Motion Xcelerator it is possible.

Finally, it is interesting that the Samsung 55Q60B provides compatibility with HDR10 ,  HDR10+ ,  HDR10+ Adaptive  and  Quantum HDR that greatly improve the visual experience, yes, the content must be compatible otherwise there will be no improvements and the quality can worsen.
