The Samsung Q60C is a lower midrange LCD TV which may fit your budget if you're not looking to spend too much. It's well-suited for bright rooms and has a reliable build quality, but its picture quality is just fair overall. It's not the best choice for gaming due to its poor performance in that aspect. If you frequently watch sports, this TV will do, but it isn't exceptional. For movies and series, you might find better options since its performance for these types of content is also rated as poor. Sound quality is considered fair, so you might want to consider additional speakers for a better audio experience. Keep in mind that it has a limited number of HDMI ports, with three available—something to consider if you have multiple devices to connect. Give Feedback

Ratings by Category

Cartoons & Animaton:
4.2
The Samsung Q60C is well-suited for cartoons and animation due to its ability to display vibrant and accurate colors right out of the box, which is essential for the typically vivid color palettes in these genres. Furthermore, it offers a wide color gamut, ensuring a range of colors that brings animated content to life, although its performance in color volume and gray uniformity is more moderate.
News, Talk & Reality TV:
3.9
The Samsung Q60C offers good upscaling of lower resolution content and displays colors accurately without the need for calibration, making it suitable for standard definition TV programs like news. However, its limited brightness and contrast capabilities may affect the viewing experience in well-lit environments or for content with more diverse color ranges.
Sports:
3.5
The Samsung Q60C's response time is subpar, making fast-moving content potentially blurrier, which could affect the clarity during sports. Additionally, while it handles reflections decently, limited viewing angles may decrease picture quality when viewed from the side, not ideal for group sports watching.
Bright Room:
3.5
The Samsung Q60C has a fair performance in bright rooms, mainly because the screen's brightness in standard dynamic range (SDR) content is good, which is crucial for viewing in well-lit environments. However, the TV's ability to handle reflections is only rated as fair, meaning it might struggle with direct light sources, affecting the viewing experience.
Overall Picture:
3.1
The Samsung Q60C has fair picture quality mainly because it offers moderate contrast, which is crucial for deep blacks and general picture depth, but it has poor local dimming that fails to enhance this further. Additionally, while it displays colors well out of the box, its HDR brightness is not high enough to make HDR content truly stand out, which can impact the overall viewing experience, especially in well-lit rooms.
