100 Hertz televisions already existed in the blissful days of tubes. They should finally stop flickering. With flat screen televisions, 100 Hertz have a completely different meaning. COMPUTER BILD explains in the test what this is and why the new Samsung Q70T is one of the most attractive televisions of this type.

What does 100 Hertz actually mean?

The 100 Hertz stand for double the refresh rate. Televisions normally show 50 frames per second (50 Hz), depending on the source of the video, it can also be 48 or 60 Hz. This sequence of images is sufficient for smooth movements on the screens. Because modern flat screens let each individual image stand until it overwrites the next image, our perception plays a trick on us: This makes fast movements look blurry. High-quality televisions therefore double the frame rate to 100 Hertz, depending on the video material, this can also be 96 or 120 Hz – for the sake of simplicity, 100 Hz is always used. For clearer movements it would be sufficient to insert a black image between each individual image. Then, however, the screen flickers. For this reason, 100-Hertz televisions calculate and insert intermediate images. The result is sharper movements without image flickering. Computer monitors sometimes work with even higher frame rates, which gamers in particular benefit from. There were also 200-Hertz televisions once, but currently the limit is 100 Hz. Higher manufacturer information is advertising nonsense.

The special features of QLED and dual LED

In addition to 100 Hz, the screen of the Samsung Q70T can also come up with special lighting technology: Samsung uses an LCD screen as the basis, as usual, LEDs shine through it as a light source (backlight, often unhappily translated into background lighting). Samsung uses LEDs with two different colors and expects greater efficiency and viewing angle stability from this. So-called quantum dots are also incorporated into the diffusing film for light distribution between LEDs and LCD panel, which is where the abbreviation comes from QLED. Quantum dots are microscopic particles that give the backlight a particularly wide range of colors. This enables the screen to display more colors than usual.

The best picture settings for the Samsung Q70T

After the initial installation, the Samsung showed bright, cool images with unsightly smoothed details, which is typical for the standard setting from Samsung. This can be remedied very easily by switching to the Picture mode film leads to much more natural colors and finely displayed textures. As an alternative, Samsung has also introduced the uniform Filmmaker mode for all manufacturers, so the picture is a little darker, but otherwise not better. Only an excess of blue that increased with increasing brightness clouded the otherwise very good impression. Related dual-LED models also showed this, but not others Samsung televisions. Perfectionists can slow down the slight excess of blue in the expert settings: In the submenu White balance leads to 2-point comparison each reduced to -5 B offset and B-gain to the goal. Whether the television smooths movements or lets cinema films stutter is left to the taste of the audience. Samsung has hidden the corresponding settings in the menu, they can be found in the Expert settings in the sub-item Focus adjustment. There is also the excellent one Noise reduction housed. For both together, the Samsung TV offers a recommendable one Automatic Attitude. If the television is too bright in a dark environment, the automatic brightness control is activated. This can be found under the menu item General, there under Eco solution as Ambient light detection. You can even choose the minimum brightness. The default setting (18) is a bit tight, from 25 the picture looks more brilliant.
