The Q74TATXZT series holds more than 80% positive reviews on Amazon, and after trying it we understand why so much excitement. Once again in this 2020 Samsung has managed to outdo itself, creating smart TVs that reflect the latest trends and taking advantage of the best latest generation technologies.
Here are the main features:
- Screen technology: QLED
- Screen Resolution: UHD 4K
- HDR: Yes
- Operating system: Tizen
- Internet and Wifi: Yes
- USB ports: 2
- HDMI ports: 4
There is not much to say about the design: the Q74TATXZT smart TVs reflect the classic Samsung style, refined, linear and minimalist. The absence of the frames on the three sides has been better identified as Boundless Design , to underline the breadth of the vision. And indeed, considering the beauty of the images, it is important to be able to fully enjoy them.
The panel’s Dual LED backlighting technology is able to adjust the chromatic tone of the colors in order to adapt it to the best of each individual content. This is why watching a movie, show or television series feels so realistic and true. In addition, Samsung has focused on multiple technologies:
- New Quantum 4K Processor for scene optimization and enhancement;
- Quantum HDR which enhances contrast and image quality;
- HDR10 + which performs a chromatic mapping offering more intense blacks and increasing the visual depth;
- 4K AI Upscaling that eliminates screen noise, restores lost detail and defines contours;
- AI adaptive brightness that optimizes brightness levels based on the light conditions of the room.
In addition, Samsung has included technologies that are very useful for gaming lovers . We are talking about the Extra Motion Clarity, for the reduction of blur and halos and the AMD FreeSync for the reduction of trails, slowdowns and flickers. For interior design lovers, however, Samsung has created the Ambient Mode + function , very appreciable for its enrichment from an aesthetic point of view.
In short, as far as visual quality is concerned, there is nothing to criticize Samsung. As for the sound section, however, we expected something more, especially after reviewing the Q80TATXZT series , equipped with 60 watts of output power. In this case, however, we are talking about 20 watts , which we say are more than satisfactory but nothing exciting.
On the other hand, what is really exciting is the AVA (Intelligent Voice Amplifier) technology. The latter is in fact able to amplify the sounds in the dialogues when it perceives background noises. This was a very clever move by the South Korean house, as it always guarantees crisp and clear audio every time.
At this point we just have to talk about the smart section, which we believe to be really rich and complete with all the “smart” functions you might want on your TV. First of all, the Tizen system is easy to navigate and very fast and intuitive. At the store you can download numerous apps and, thanks to the convenient Smart Hub , always have them at hand.
Also very useful is the One Remote Control , the remote control that allows you to manage all the devices connected to the smart TV. In other words, whether it’s the Blue Ray player or the PlayStation you won’t need other remotes. Speaking of interaction with the TV it is impossible not to mention the completeness of the voice commands .
In fact, all the smart TVs of the Q74TATXZT series are equipped with Bixby, Alexa and Google Assistant. Another factor that really surprised us is the remote access with the PC via Wifi , which allows you to do all the work on the home screen. In short, how to make smart working even smarter.
Finally, as regards the smart section, we must underline the innovative Mirroring function , which can be accessed by bringing the smartphone closer to the TV panel, and the Multi View function , which separates the screen into two parts to allow you to watch the contents of the telephone at the same time as the television ones.
In conclusion, from 1 to 10, our final grade is 10 and praise .
