If you're a gamer or watch a lot of sports, the Sony X85K performs better because it has a higher refresh rate and better motion processing. For general bright room viewing, the Sony also has a slight edge. However, for movies and regular TV shows in a bright room, the Samsung Q60B provides a satisfactory experience at a potentially slightly higher cost. Neither TV offers great dark room performance, so if that is a priority, you may want to consider other models. Keep in mind, the Sony X85K has an extra HDMI port, which can be useful if you have multiple devices to connect. 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."
