The Samsung Q60B is typically less expensive and offers good overall picture quality, especially in bright rooms. If you're on a budget and primarily watch news, talk shows, or animation, this could be a solid choice. However, its performance in dark rooms is not as strong. On the other hand, the Samsung Q80B, while being more expensive, provides a better gaming experience and sports viewing, with its higher refresh rate and extra HDMI port being favorable for gaming consoles and other devices. It also has better sound quality with great speakers included, and a wider viewing angle, making it suitable for larger groups watching from different angles. Both TVs have similar quality for movies and series, but if gaming and sports are important for you and you're willing to pay more, the Q80B is the more capable option. Give Feedback

CNET

David Katzmaier | June 2022
"Samsung's 2022 QLED workhorse shines in bright rooms and with HDR. The Samsung Q60B stands out from the slew of entry-level TVs with an ultra-thin frame, a skinny profile from the side and even narrow stand legs. The Q60B is a very good bright-room TV, and my subjective impression of its ample light output was proven by measurements."

Tom's guide

Matthew Murray | February 2023
"For most people its picture, sound, and price make it a midrange TV worth considering. HDR brightness was generally exceptional. Its viewing angles are shockingly good, among the very best we’ve seen recently from any non-OLED TV. For gamers input lag isn’t too shabby."
