In this article, we will show you the complete Samsung Q60R 4K Ultra HD Smart TV Black Friday Deals 2021. This post keeps you updated with the latest features.
Hi, I’m Carl with Abt, and we’re gonna be taking a look at the Q60R series, the starting point for Samsung’s 2020 QLED sets, and it’s available in 49, 55, 65, and 75 inches, however not all of the specs we’ll be talking about in this video are gonna apply to the 49 inch model.
And these can all be purchased right here at Abt, the links will be down below. The bezel design’s pretty close to the same as what we saw on the last generation Samsung QLEDs, which is a good thing. It’s thin and it both looks and feels solid. The pedestal, and we’re starting to see more of this, is two wide-set feet. Once they’re on, they hold the TV firmly in place, but they aren’t the most durable feeling. They’re noticeably plastic. And the cable management is in the form of a couple of thin plastic clips that fit onto the back of the foot. This is the point in the TV setup where you start to notice where they sacrificed a little but remember this is the starting point of the QLED sets so it’s expected. It can be wall-mounted too, so you have options. If you DO plan on putting this on a stand, make sure to keep the width of the feet in mind.
There’s no way to make them any narrower. Around back you get 4 HDMI 2.1 inputs, one of which has an audio return channel, but don’t get overexcited yet, there are some limitations. You don’t get eARC, however, you can still get Atmos sound if the TVs outputting Dolby Digital Plus, and high frame rate functionality is limited to 2k content at 120 frames per second. For gaming, the inputs DO support VRR and auto low latency which’ll help with tearing, but the lag numbers weren’t the best we’ve ever seen. They also support dynamic metadata for HDR content. Getting back to the other inputs, you’ve got your antenna hookup, two “type A” USB ports, RS232C, and an ethernet connection to go along with wi-fi and Bluetooth. And with that Bluetooth, you can hook up one of several soundbars from Samsung wirelessly, or a number of different Bluetooth headphones. The TV speakers are amplified by 20 watts of power and the overall quality is serviceable, though I still recommend adding some kind of supplemental sound to this television to fully appreciate how good it can be in a home theater. As far as the picture goes, this is edge-lit with Supreme UHD dimming and I must say, it’s impressive.
I would put this up there with some of the better full array sets we’ve seen in the past. It’s obviously not gonna be AS good, but if you wanna save some money and get the closest thing, this has gotta be a strong consideration. There are four preset picture modes – dynamic, standard, natural, and movie – to match the type of programming you’re watching, and I was finding the standard to be my favorite. It seemed to offer the best color balance on the majority of what I watched, mostly between youtube and Netflix. And the picture stayed pretty true as I moved off to the sides. There was definitely a drop-off, but it seems to be getting much better. As for motion, this did a decent job. There were some instances where I noticed a bit of judder, but it seemed to be more noticeable when things were moving at a moderate pace rather than a fast pace. It may very well have been the footage and not the TV, but it’s worth noting. And for any gamers out there, we tested this on 1080p at 60 hertz and our numbers were around 40 milliseconds with game mode and game motion plus on and around 13.5 milliseconds with game mode on and game motion plus off. The remote’s been slightly updated.
It’s the same general size and shape as we’ve seen on the last couple years remotes, but now it has shortcut buttons for netflix, Hulu and prime video. A press of the home button brings up the Smart Hub which runs smoothly. I didn’t notice any major changes here, but if you know of any, feel free to leave them down in the comments. And for anyone wondering, yes, this also has an ambient mode which can either be found in the smart hub or by pressing the shortcut button on the remote. Now, the remote isn’t the only way to control the TV. Samsung’s smart assistant, Bixby, allows for voice operation. Bixby’s not my favorite smart assistant, but it does allow you to adjust functions within the TVs menus a lot better than the others out there since it’s made specifically for Samsung. But here’s a nice change for 2020, now you can use google home and amazon alexa devices to control some features like changing the channel and volume. I think this is something they needed to do and I’m really happy to see that the door’s been opened to working with other voice assistants. If you’re someone who wants to get the full color volume that quantum dots offer but don’t want to completely break the bank, this would be a great TV to consider. Also, with all the available sizes most people will be able to find one to fit their needs. What do you think? Would you game on this TV or is it better suited for watching shows or movies?
