Samsung Q60R 4K UHD smart TV review: The QLED color experience for less

When you’ve envied the quantum dot shade and interface perquisites supplied by Samsung’s QLED TVs, however thought they have been out of your worth vary, assume once more. The 55-inch Q60R reviewed right here prices simply $700, and it delivers the wealthy shade and fashionable expertise of its pricier QLED siblings. You may even get it in a 43-inch mannequin for $500. Sure, for many who have requested, there’s a QLED that can truly match someplace apart from your front room wall.

It is best to, nevertheless, mood the keenness I simply inspired—the Q60R’s picture isn’t fairly in the identical league as Samsung’s different QLEDs by way of brightness or element. That is largely as a result of it’s an edge-lit mannequin, and never a direct array-lit set, as Samsung’s product description may lead you to imagine (extra on that in a bit). However the Q60R nonetheless delivers probably the greatest photographs in its class, and the lushest total expertise by far for the cash. 

Design and specs

The Q60R that I examined was a 55-inch class (54.5-inches measured diagonally) that includes 3840 x 2160 (4K UHD) decision and 10-bit quantum dot shade. It weighs roughly 43 kilos, together with the 2 removable legs. Sorry, there’s no iMac-like pedestal such as you’ll discover on the more-expensive Q90R.

The Q60R is a skinny design with a slim bezel; it should look equally good sitting on its stand or mounted to your wall.

With TV distributors, it’s best to at all times take note of the advertising spin. The Q60R product web page talks about Extremely Slim Array and Supreme UHD dimming, but it surely’s not the total array native dimming (FALD) direct back-lighting that you simply may construe these phrases to imply. Except, in fact, you’re considering of an “array” of tunnels and lights on the sting of the TV that may be dimmed. 

Slim Kind: Slim? Quantum HDR 4X? 100% Coloration Quantity with Quantum Dot? Which of the dozen or so shade areas are we speaking about? Sure, the TV is edge lit. It’s additionally “Movement Fee 240,” which suggests it’s a 120Hz panel. Or has historically. I wasn’t so positive after witnessing the movement compensation. Samsung and the remainder of the trade have to have a gathering and cease the advertising nonsense.

The Q60R options 4 HDMI 2.zero ports, considered one of which helps the audio return channel (ARC), in addition to two USB ports, coaxial (TV/cable/satellite tv for pc), ethernet, optical digital out, and an RS-232C port. There’s additionally Wi-Fi and Bluetooth on board.

Distant and interface

I used to be anticipating a motel-quality distant management given the Q60R’s worth, however darned if the corporate didn’t embrace its elegant One Distant, like people who ship with its pricier QLEDs. The One Distant is amongst my favorites: diminutive, intelligent, and properly laid out. I’m not even going to complain concerning the promoting shortcuts. At this worth, I’m not going to complain concerning the interface not returning to your final place, both. Truly, it’s wonderful how a lot a cheaper price will ameliorate irritation.

Samsung’s Sensible Hub interface being browsed utilizing the newest model of the corporate’s One Distant common distant management. 

The interface is the usual Sensible Hub, bottom-row-of-icons that’s featured on all of Samsung’s higher TVs. It’s straightforward to make use of, you may customise the order delete icons that aren’t related to you, and the ecosystem helps all the favored apps customers search for, together with, Apple TV+. There’s an digital program information, Bixby voice management, Alexa help, and naturally machine studying of your preferences—when you’re into that form of factor. DLNA streaming works nice, the system acknowledges when mass media is plugged in or gadgets are turned on, and setup begins scanning for TV channels even earlier than you attain that step within the course of.
