It is clearly among the other rivals models. No more no less.
In addition this Samsung displays a Ultra HD 4K resolution.  It could be said that this model gathers all the expected characteristics. Whether we consider its aesthetics or its size, the engineers of Samsung have developed a television admittedly a middle-range one, but a quality one anyway.

A product that is correct in view of its price. A sleek but effective design. It has the potential to compete with other TV sets on the market.
The Samsung GQ43Q60 is simply flat.
With its screen surface of 43 inches, Another thing we can highlight in the design of this TV is the design of its support. Indeed it has a double base, in which we have a division where each part of the base has its place. With this, the TV is exactly the same on both sides, thus creating a very symmetrical and stylish TV that can be enjoyed in any room.

TV screen presentation Samsung GQ43Q60

The Samsung has a correct and well-calibrated image quality, but you have to do with a limited native contrast that is suitable for daytime viewing; forget about home theater programs in the dark.
With this new model, Samsung confirms one of its technological choices. It’s Edge LED display and that’s too bad. Due to its age and new possibilities such as the led, you will feel like you are going back 10 years. The image is poor.

With regard to the display, the company proposes a Ultra HD 4K resolution. It’s better than the others for a TV in its class.
And with his 43 inches, he’s in a series of TVs that belongs to the series of standard models in its range.Whatever the characteristics, it is still a beautiful screen. On this point, don’t worry.
Samsung chooses a frequency of 60 Hz, this TV has a better rendering compared to its competitors, in the same category.
In addition, Samsung has decided to use its mastery of advanced technology on this device, which allows it to benefit from a high quality Ultra HD 4K image resolution.
Thus, the Samsung GQ43Q60 allows you to watch everyday movies and videos without necessarily wanting it to be a home theater level. It’s a decent mid-range.

A brief listening allows us to see that it does not work miracles. The sound is far from exceptional. That’s enough for TV shows, but not for home theater showings.
In terms of sound equipment, the TV is equipped with two baffles with 10 W at output.

In short, the sound is enough to cover your everyday needs. The GQ43Q60 Samsung is not designed for home cinema. That’s not what we are expecting.
