Samsung Jet Bot AI+ Robot Vacuum with Object Recognition review: a robot vacuum for grown-ups

Launched in spring 2022, Samsung’s Jet Bot AI+ remains the brand's top-end and most sophisticated robot vacuum cleaner to date. Forward-thinking features include LiDAR and 3D navigation, object recognition (and avoidance), and remote-control cameras. 

But before we delve into more geeky goodness, would you just look at it. Working in the interiors industry can lead to design snobbery, but I had nothing to sneer about when unboxing the Samsung Jet Bot AI+. A sleek cross between a Stormtrooper and Monster Truck, but with Porsche-grade finesse, this was undoubtedly one of the most attractive looking robot vacuums I've tested.  

Back to the tech. One of my favorite features of the Jet Bot AI+ was its object recognition skills. Even if it usually failed to accurately name them – 90% of the items were recorded on the app as socks/towels or cables, which was accurate 0% of the time! However, it did go around the dogs’ toys – which have frequently stopped other robot vacuums in their tracks. Those with younger children should find they don’t have to spend time picking up toys or abandoned clothing (socks, perhaps?) before releasing their robot.  

I tested the Samsung Jet Bot AI+ on a variety of floor types – carpet, wood, porcelain, terracotta and laminate – on the ground floor of our fairly open-plan family home. The overall area is approximately 100 square meters, but a fair amount of that is covered by furniture the vacuum couldn’t get underneath. So, in reality, the Samsung Jet Bot AI+ only had about 70 square meters to cover. 

Over the past year, the online customer reviews from Jet Bot AI+ owners have been rather Marmite-ish. Some claim to love it more than toast, rating it one of the best robot vacuums out there. Others want to put it in the sea – not literally – and switch back to their best cordless vacuum. Read on to find out which way I swayed…

Samsung Jet Bot AI+ review: Price & Availability

  • List price: $999.99 / £989
  •  Available in US & UK

There’s no doubting that the Samsung Jet Bot AI+ is an investment. If I were to draw comparisons on price in the motoring industry, this robot would be more Porsche 911 than Peugeot 307. It’s similar in spec, price and ability to iRobot’s Roomba s9+ self-emptying robot. I’ve now tested both and, if I had the salary of a Porsche owner (sadly, I don’t), I’d put my money on the iRobot. 

If you’ve got money to burn, you can pick up the Samsung Jet Bot AI+ direct from Samsung, globally, as well as through major retailers such as Amazon, Argos, Currys, John Lewis and Home Depot.

Samsung Jet Bot AI+ Vacuum Review: Design

  • A thing of beauty
  • LED visual light bar
  • Too tall

Solidly built and impressively robust, this is the monster truck of robot vacuums, and its design is hard to fault – at least when it comes to looks. The Misty White livery will suit most interiors, and the bin/charging Clean Station is similarly streamlined and luxe. A light bar at the front of the robot pulses white when it’s on the move, and yellow when charging. 

In Sound Effect mode, the Jet Bot plays a jolly jingle when it kicks off and returns to the charging base, providing an audible indicator that all is well. You can change the Sound Mode settings to Voice. In English, there’s a choice between Lisa or John, who sing out chipper ditties such as “it may be dusty outside, but it’s all clean in here” at the end of a clean, as well as less patronizing, more practical commentary. Both voices are annoying, and I quickly reverted back to the Sound Effect melodies (there’s also a Mute option for the seriously noise averse/grumpy). 

There are precious few useful buttons on the machine itself – just stop, start and go home, plus a sliding switch at the side that turns the vacuum completely on and off. For full functionality, you’d better be app proficient. Said app is Samsung’s SmartThings home automation app, which I already use for our Frame TV and soundbar. Adding a new device was straightforward, and the Jet Bot app control section is excellently laid out for intuitive use.

While the overall looks of the Jet Bot AI+ are on fleek, its height (3.9in/136.5mm) is a major design flaw; it isn't skinny, either. It's essentially too tall to slide under plinths and too wide to get between chair legs, meaning that ditching your manual vacuum will not be an option. It did manage to wedge itself under a small side table in our living room, carrying it around on its back like a drunk snail until rescued!

Flip it upside down, and the first thing those who have experience with robot vacuums may spot is the lack of a swirling brush. These tend to protrude at one corner, directing stray debris into the central suction area. Instead, there's just the usual roller brush, which is also worryingly devoid of actual bristles. Think plush velvet roller rather than round hairbrush-style; it certainly didn’t look like it would be capable of tackling all the pet and human hair found around our home.

The top of the robot has a lift-off cover that reveals its innards– and they're more impressive, both in terms of design and functionality. There’s a pull-out fine dust filter, as well as two additional filters inside the lid of the bin, which also lifts out very easily with a handle. In total, you’re looking at five layers of filtration, meaning 99.99% of micro-dust will be trapped inside the bin, not released back into the room.

This upright vacuum also has an anti-allergen complete seal, which captures and traps 99.9% of dust and allergens inside the vacuum. Although this is difficult to test, my husband and I did notice that we weren't sneezing nor suffering watering eyes while this vacuum was in use, which is something that we can be sensitive to – so we'll take that as a win.

  • Design: 4.5/5

Samsung Jet Bot AI+ review: Performance

  • Vacuums well on hard floors
  • Object avoidance is sheer genius 
  • Spy on pets when you’re out

I’ve been using the Samsung Jet Bot AI+ robot vacuum to clean the ground floor of our home for well over a month now, and it was only at the very end of this test period that a job was completed without issues. In fact, I had to ask if I could keep it longer than normal, just to reach this goal. Weirdly, the Jet Bot is an excellent mapper, and delivered a credible map of our ground floor faster than any other robot vacuum I’ve tested. It's packed with top-spec LiDAR and 3D sensors, and wasted no time at all working out where all our furniture sits and how to get into rooms with multiple entrances. In the first run, it had our ground floor sussed out. Unprecedented.

Sadly, these excellent mapping skills didn’t appear to aid real-life navigation. The Samsung Jet Bot AI+ was pretty rubbish at finding its charging base, the rooms I’d scheduled it to clean, or its way out of a paper bag! In the first three weeks I’d barely started the car for the school run before I’d received a notification that it couldn’t find the room it was meant to be cleaning. I tried rebooting the robot, moving the charging base (which had more than the recommended free space around it, while also being within spitting distance of our Wi-Fi router) and reinstalling the app on my iPhone. No dice. 

As mentioned earlier, Object Recognition was brilliant. Or rather, navigation around said objects. Apparently, this feature was developed to deal with the issue of robot’s smearing pet excrement around the house while you’re out – yuck! Since our dogs are very well house-trained, I was simply grateful not to receive endless notifications that the robot was tangled up in something it shouldn’t be, nor did I have to waste precious time scanning all the rooms for potential hazards. 

Another handy feature that worked well is the intelligent power control, which automatically adapts power according to floor type, thus saving battery life. There’s also the option to set the power to Max or Normal – but why would you when there’s a Smart button that does the thinking for you? 

Navigation and speed issues aside, was the Samsung Jet Bot AI+ any good at actual cleaning? The short answer is yes, and no! Initially, I struggled with the edges of a room; the vacuum wasn’t getting close enough to suck up the drifts of dog hair our Sprocker Spaniels shed year-round. 

Matters improved once I changed the cleaning mode to "Clean walls and edges first", rather than cleaning the center before the walls or moving in a zigzag pattern (which is quicker, but less effective). However, the corners were still a bit hairy (literally) and I couldn’t help wishing that the Samsung Jet Bot AI+ had a twirly corner brush to get right into those crevices. 

The majority of our ground floor is covered either in engineered wood or tiles, and the suction power on the Jet Bot and, presumably, the roller-heads beneath did a fantastic job. Bigger debris such as hay and cornflakes is often pushed aside by robot vacuums; but the Jet Bot left nothing behind. It lost points on the wool carpet in the living room, where it left the girls’ hair, and feathers, stuck in the fibers of the carpet – the lack of brushes on the rollers seemed likely to blame. It appeared to be doing a good job of pulling dust from deeper in the pile, though, and when I ran over the same area with my (excellent) cordless vacuum, I was pleased to find precious little dust in the bin.

On Spot Cleaning, this robot vacuum didn’t do amazingly well. I scattered flour in a corner of the kitchen and then sent the Jet Bot in to spot clean, twice. The results were okay in the main area, but clearly demonstrate that corners really aren't its strong-suit.

Cleaning and maintaining the Jet Bot AI+ is very easy, not least because the bin automatically empties into the Clean Station when it docks. The vacuum arrives with two dust bags; and I didn’t fill the first one in the six-week trial period. These replaceable bin bags should hold up to three months’ worth of dirt, depending on the size of your home and how filthy dirty it is. Replacement dust bags cost £19 for five, which is a fair price.

All the many filters and internal dust bin can easily be whipped out and washed under the tap, and the roller is also super simple to unclip and remove for cleaning. No screwdrivers or science degree required. Not that I needed to remove the roller. It's supported by high-efficiency extractors (nubby triangular pieces at the front of the roller casing, I think) that grind up hairs to prevent them from becoming tangled around the brush, and it works brilliantly. Hair wrapped around rollers is one of the most annoying parts of owning two long-haired girls – and, for once, I didn’t have to cut a carpet-worth of hair off the rollers once a week.

The SmartThings app isn’t terribly complicated, which is a good thing. Highlights include the cleaning reports, which let you see exactly where the robot became stuck before giving up on a clean, and the Find robot vacuum, which means you don’t have to wander around aimlessly to seek it out (it was usually trapped in the cloakroom toilet, where it frequently managed to shut the door on itself). 

App cleaning report

The scheduling function is useful and easy to set up/change, and the app also includes a decent Home Monitoring system, which is great fun. You can send the vacuum around the house to check out what the pets are doing when you’re out (sleeping, mostly) and, if you download a movement sensor widget, you can also get it to detect motion and send an alert, should the vacuum detect a disturbance. Handier in high-crime areas than on the edges of Dartmoor.

  • Performance: 3.5/5

Samsung Jet Bot AI+ review: Battery

  • Not the longest run-time on the market
  • Recharges when there’s still 10% left in the tank
  • Charges in approximately 3.5 hours

The 90 minutes of running time on offer was accurate and should have been sufficient to cover our entire ground floor. However, the Samsung Jet Bot AI+ must be especially slow – or more thorough, perhaps – than other robots I’ve tested. It could manage only three rooms before it had to return home to refuel; four rooms at a stretch. With my regular robot, I can go to the yard, muck out the pony, get the kids to school and return home to clean floors (a one-hour round trip). Alas, the Samsung Jet Bot AI+ would still be chuntering on 20 minutes after I’d fired up the work laptop. Luckily, the Jet Bot is pretty quiet. The official 74dBA rating must refer to Max power mode, as my sound meter recorded around 53dBA in the Smart cleaning mode, which isn't too distracting.

Battery: 3.5 / 5

Samsung Jet Bot AI+ Robot Vacuum Review: Also consider

How I tested the Samsung Jet Bot AI+ robot vacuum

  • It was used to clean wood, tile, laminate, carpet and (very short pile) rugs
  • I used the Samsung Jet Bot AI+ as my main vacuum downstairs for six weeks

I’ve been using the Samsung Jet Bot AI+ at least once a day, sometimes more, on the ground floor of my four-bedroom Victorian home for six weeks. It has seven rooms plus a central hallway, but towards the end of the testing period I only had it clean three or four rooms, which is seemed to find more manageable. When I'm not testing a robot, I will usually only vacuum the three most frequently used rooms every day, so this was closer to reality. 

I’ve used all the key features on the app, but I didn’t download the motion detection sensor. Nor did I connect it to Alexa, partly because I couldn’t work out how – but mainly because I had it set up on an automatic schedule, so there was no need.

I’ve been reviewing robot vacuums, and non-robotic vacuums, for several years now, and been testing all manner of other appliances, garden tech, bedding and fitness equipment for nigh on 20 years.

SimpliSafe SimpliCam review: The perfect indoor security camera for beginners
4:08 pm | February 13, 2023

Author: admin | Category: Computers Gadgets | Tags: | Comments: Off

One-minute review

Originally founded in the US in 2006, SimpliSafe sells a range of home security products that are designed to be easy to install and easy to use. These include indoor and outdoor cameras, video doorbells and smart locks that are all available to buy online. The SimpliSafe SimpliCam indoor security camera is just one of the intuitive products in its growing lineup. 

SimpliSafe offers homeowners a professional monitoring home security service alongside its systems, "with no long-term contracts and at affordable prices".  Relatively new in the UK, the company has recently undergone a brand refresh, so I was keen to try out one of its latest products in my own home. 

I tried out the SimpliCam indoor camera, to see how well it performed and how precisely it alerted me to any potential intruder or disturbance. I wanted to see how easy it was to use and install, and whether it could offer peace of mind when I was away from home. I’m not overly keen on the idea of having an indoor security camera in my home, but I did want to see whether the SimpliCam was as straightforward to use as other indoor cameras that I've tried in the past, such as the Ring Indoor Cam and Y-Cam. 

Keep scrolling to find out how the SimpliSafe SimpliCam got on in our home then, head to our best home security cameras guide for more comparisons. 

SimpliCam SimpliSafe review price & availability

  • List price: $99/£69 
  • Available in US & UK

It isn't the cheapest indoor security camera you can buy online, but the SimpliSafe SimpliCam is reasonably priced for a stylishly designed indoor camera with smart functionality. It's sold both in the US and UK

You'll need to sign up to a SimpliSafe plan to make full use of the recording functionality and for enhanced monitoring – although you can opt in or opt out at any time. Terms and conditions and prices for these plans vary in the US and UK, depending on which plan you choose. This is because emergency responses work differently in both countries. 

When installing the camera in the US, you should expect to pay $9.99 per month for instant access for up to three days of recording and storage, with you able to add up to five cameras to the plan. A standard plan costs around $17.99 per month, which provides help from professional monitoring agents. The highest plan with 24/7 monitoring and police dispatch costs around $27.99 per month. 

If installing this camera in the UK, you can expect to pay around £4.99 per month for a standard recording plan that includes unlimited recording, 30 days of storage and up to 10 cameras. A more comprehensive professional monitoring plan with camera recording, guard response and police response costs £24.99 per month. 

  • Price: 4.5/5

SimpliCam SimpliSafe review design

  • Internal microphone
  • Privacy shutter
  • High-power infrared LED cut filter

In terms of aesthetics, the SimpliSafe comes neatly presented and simply styled in a navy and orange box. Inside the box you'll find the camera, cord and set of basic instructions. Finished in black, the camera is minimally styled, and the base on which you can stand it up comes attached as part of the design. 

I’ve owned indoor cameras in a white finish, but I believe this black design is more discreetly hidden in a room; although the blue light that indicates the unit is powered on is quite bright. The camera arrives with a stand; there aren’t any screws in the box for mounting the camera onto the wall, but this is something that could no doubt be easily done with your own tools, should you wish. 

Setting up the camera was straightforward. I simply removed the cap protecting the tip of the micro-USB cord, and slid it through the stand. You'll have to use your own plug to set it up since one isn't included in the box. 

The camera was already attached to its base, so I just needed to find a decent position with flat surface for it to stand – with a plug nearby. The fact that it isn’t wireless does limit where you can position the camera, although on the plus side you won’t have to fiddle around recharging it when it runs out of power. I ended up lacing it on a sideboard, opposite the back door. 

I moved it around the house a bit, trying it on a bookcase and on top of the mantlepiece, too, which all seemed to work well in terms of stability and getting a good view of the rooms in my home.

  • Design: 4.5/5

SimpliSafe SimpliCam review performance

  • Live feed and recording of video and audio
  • Wi-Fi Connection (2.4GHz)
  • Two-way talk and night vision

The camera doesn’t have an "on" switch, so I received an alert that said, ‘Your camera is ready for set up. You’ll find all the instructions to get you started in the Simplisafe App’, as soon as I plugged it in.

Once I'd downloaded the SimpliSafe app on my iPhone (it's both Android and iPhone compatible), I had to connect to my home Wi-Fi, get the camera to scan a QR code on my phone, and sign up with my email address to create an account. After going through the password verifying process, I could set up fingerprint and face recognition to quickly and securely log in.

There’s a choice of security plans you’ll need to sign up for to make use of unlimited recording and video storage (outlined above). I chose the entry-level plan that offers unlimited recording and 30 days of storage. Up to 10 cameras can be added to this plan, which would work well if you wanted to use it as part of a whole home security system. For those wanting to make use of voice assistants such as Alexa, you’ll need to sign up to the Pro Premium professional monitoring plan.

Within the app, you can instantly access live HD video footage from your camera, whether you’re home or away. The camera won’t follow an intruder around the room, so you're somewhat limited when it comes to being able to view the entire room. However, it does give you a 120-degree diagonal field of view, which I think works well to showcase half the room – or, for instance, if you've targeted an area such as a back door to keep a watch on. 

With motion detection, the camera will pick up any movement or noise in the room and send an alert to your smart device. It comes with built-in motion detection algorithms that are calibrated to detect the unique heat signature of humans, so you won't receive unnecessary alerts – should a book fall off the shelf or a pen drops onto the floor, for example. 

Setting up the SimpliSafe camera

Setting up the camera was relatively easy and it also sent me alerts when it had trouble connecting (Image credit: Future | Photo by Emily Peck )

After adjusting it to focus on the back door, I could start to monitor any comings and goings. I used it over a month-long period to capture any action. When the camera detects motion or audio, it will send an alert to your smart device and also start recording a short clip that you can then view in a timeline on the app. These can be downloaded or shared, if desired, too.

Once set up, alerts came through to my phone when anyone walked passed the camera or entered the room. A useful feature in the app is the privacy shutter, which allows you to open and close the camera shutter remotely. This meant I could turn it off when we were at home, avoiding alerts pinging to me every time someone walked past. The only downside of using this button is that you'll need to remember to turn it back on afterwards. The app also pushed out alerts when my internet connection was poor, so I could adjust it accordingly. 

I tested the effectiveness of the alerts when I was out of the house, too. I asked a family member to walk past the camera and I timed how long it took for me to receive an alert on my phone. Of course, you need a good phone signal to receive an alert, but I was suitably impressed at how quickly the alert came through. I could then go into the app and view the video recording and access live footage. I could also press the record button to start live recording myself. 

In terms of picture quality, the HD footage is clear enough to see what’s going on. As mentioned, there is a button to record live footage, but I'd also have welcomed a button to capture stills. If I wanted to capture a picture or the room, I had to manually screen-grab a shot instead.   

SimpliSafe SimpliCam footage

The app is basic in design and it’s easy to press watch live to view real-time footage. However, I did take some time to work out what the control icons in the app do. The clock icon took me to a timeline of previously recorded motion footage, for example. Videos captured at night when light levels were low are shot in black and white. Although relatively clear, they obviously aren't as clear as the shots captured in daylight. 

I could use the mute button to switch the sound coming from the live feed off or on. Above that is the microphone control for two-way talk – this meant I could simply press it to make use of the camera’s built-in microphone to speak to anyone on the other end, shout at an intruder, or say a reassuring hi to the dog.

  • Performance: 4.5/5

Samsung Q60B review: a cheap QLED TV with great brightness, but compromises
4:09 pm | February 2, 2023

Author: admin | Category: Computers Gadgets | Tags: , | Comments: Off

Samsung Q60B: Two minute review

The Samsung Q60B QLED TV starts from a much cheaper price than Samsung's other QLED sets, but its spec sheet includes Quantum Dot colors, a comprehensive smart system, and so-called Object Tracking Sound technology. 

The Samsung Q60B looks like it should have what it takes to steal a march over its similarly priced competition. It backs its on-paper appeal up with a gorgeous super-slim design, crisp finish, and good build quality that help it look and feel much more premium than you’d expect for its money.

And aside from being a bit unintuitive to navigate, the Samsung Q60B’s Tizen smart system impresses by delivering pretty much every streaming app known to humankind, and ensuring that there’s always HDR and 4K streaming support from any app that carries these features.

Picture quality starts well, with the Q60B producing more brightness and Quantum Dot-inspired color punch than the vast majority of cheap TV rivals. Its playback of native 4K sources is also impressively crisp most of the time, too – especially welcome on the 55-inch size that we tested for this Samsung Q60B review. It doesn't miss out compared to the best 4K TVs for Ultra HD content.

However, you don’t have to watch for too long before you notice that the pleasing brightness has a cost in the shape of relatively flat, gray dark scenes. Motion doesn’t look as clean and natural as it usually does on Samsung TVs either – even accounting for its price, it's not up there with the best TVs available today. Meanwhile, the Q60B’s audio system copes with day-to-day TV viewing quite nicely but comes up short of power with any good action film soundtrack.

In the US, the same kind of price at 55 inches will get you the TCL 6-Series Roku TV (2022), which provides mini-LED backlighting for its QLED panel, plus 120Hz support for better motion handling. We'd suggest that for most people. In the UK, the competition is tougher, and the Samsung Q60B is still one of the best TVs under £1000.

We tested the 55-inch Samsung 55Q60B for this review.

Samsung Q60B review: Price and release date

  • Released in May 2022
  • Starts from $549 / £499 for 43-inch model (not available in Australia)
  • Costs $699 / £699 / AU$1,299 for the 55-inch model we tested

The Q60B is the cheapest Samsung TV series in its Quantum Dot ‘QLED’ category, and it comes in smaller sizes than most of Samsung's other QLED TVs – at least, it does in some countries. It has a different range of sizes in the US, the UK and Australia.

In the US, it comes in 43-inch ($549), 50-inch ($649), 55-inch ($699), 60-inch ($799), 65-inch ($949), 70-inch ($999), 75-inch ($1,199) and 85-inch ($1,799) sizes.

In the UK, it comes in 43-inch (£499), 50-inch (£599), 55-inch (£649), 65-inch (£1,099), 75-inch (£1,599) and 85-inch (£1,999) sizes.

In Australia, is starts with the 55-inch model (AU$1,299), and you've also got 65-inch (AU$1,499), 75-inch (AU$2,499) and 85-inch (AU$3,999) sizes.

Being Samsung’s cheapest QLED range does mean that the Q60Bs’ screen specifications are limited in some other ways, as we’ll see in the next section, and there are models from the likes of Hisense and TCL that also feature Quantum Dots, but are able to pack in some more advanced image tech elsewhere too.

The existence of these rivals does not, though, make the Samsung Q60B any less of a potential hit, provided its performance is up to Samsung’s usual mid-range LCD standards.

The step-up model from the Q60B, the Q70B, provides you a slightly more powerful picture processor – including more advanced motion handling. Going up again to the Samsung Q80B gets you a more advanced backlight with better contrast. If you can live without Quantum Dots, the step-down Samsung BU8500 saves you a little more money, but features the same processing and smart TV tech.

Samsung Q60B review: Features

  • QLED TV with edge LED lighting
  • Native 4K resolution and HDR support
  • Uses Samsung's Dual-LED backlight technology

The Samsung Q60B’s key screen specifications make for interesting reading, thanks to their unusual mix of premium and basic features. On the basic front, the panel uses relatively inaccurate edge-based lighting rather than putting its LEDs directly behind the screen, and doesn’t feature any local dimming (where different parts of the backlight can be made to output different levels of light, so darker areas can appear dimmer darker than light areas). 

On the premium side, the Quantum Dot color system will hopefully reach color tones, and subtleties regular color filter technology cannot match. In fact, Samsung claims more than a billion shades and 100% coverage of the key DCI-P3 color standard in its Q60B marketing. 

While it doesn’t carry local dimming, it does benefit from a Dual-LED lighting system, that finds the LEDs ranged around the screen producing alternating cool and warm tones in a bid to increase color accuracy and richness. 

The Q60B’s on-paper strengths raise real hopes of superior performance with high dynamic range content – though the potential lack of light control is something we’ll have to keep an eye on. 

The HDR potential is bolstered, too, by support for the HDR10+ format as well as the more basic HDR10 and HLG formats. The HDR10+ format adds extra scene-by-scene image data to the video feed that compatible TVs can use to produce more dynamic and accurate images. In fact, the Q60B even provides the Adaptive version of HDR10+, where the picture settings can automatically compensate for ambient light conditions.

As ever with Samsung TVs, though, the support for HDR10+ is not partnered with support for the Dolby Vision format, which also carries extra scene-by-scene image data but is available on a broader range of sources than HDR10+, including Disney Plus and Netflix.

Another premium image touch is the Quantum Processor Lite 4K brain at the Q60B’s heart. This is not as potent as the processor found in Samsung’s step-up models and doesn’t draw on any AI ‘neural network’ learning like the processors inside Samsung’s high-end TVs. But it still works across a range of picture quality areas to deliver better-looking results - especially regarding the upscaling of sub-4K sources.

The Quantum Processor extends its tendrils into the Q60B’s audio, offering the option to automatically adjust the TV’s audio profile to suit different types of content.

Although it’s only equipped with a down-firing 2x10W speaker system, the Q60B still delivers a ‘Lite’ version of Samsung’s Object Tracking Sound system whereby sound effects appear to be coming from precisely the correct place on the screen. Thanks to Samsung's Q-Symphony feature, you can also partner the Q60B’s speakers with those of a recent Samsung soundbar and they'll combine together for a bigger sound, instead of the soundbar simply replacing the built-in speakers.

On the back, you'll find three HDMI ports, which is often the case with cheaper TVs, but given that this is premium enough to be a QLED model, we'd prefer the future-proofing that four ports would give you.

Samsung Q60B review: Picture quality

  • Bright and colorful for its money
  • Good 4K and upscaled sharpness
  • Some black level shortcomings

As we’d slightly feared, the desire to deliver the color and brightness benefits associated with Quantum Dots at the Q60B’s sort of affordable price level isn’t an unmitigated success… but there are certainly times when you’d be forgiven for persuading yourself that it was.

Essentially the successes and failures of the Q60B’s picture quality depend on whether you’re watching bright or dark scenes. With the former, the set instantly wins you over with its impressive brightness compared with many of its similarly affordable rivals. It’s often said that you really need at least 500 nits of brightness for anything approaching a ‘true’ HDR experience, and the Q60B is impressively bright for a budget TV, able to produce 573 nits of brightness on a 10% white HDR window in its Standard picture mode during our tests.

The Q60B’s ability to deliver this certainly contributes to a much more dramatic and exciting shift when you switch from SDR to HDR than you do with most cheap HDR TVs.

This brightness feeds handsomely into the Q60B’s Quantum Dot colors, giving them levels of intensity and richness that again push comfortably beyond the color volumes typically associated with TVs at the same price. The brightness can cause a bit of subtle shading to be lost in the most extremely bright HDR areas. Still, for the most part – especially in the Standard preset – the impressively full-on color saturations are combined with very credible and immersive blends and tonal shifts. 

Again there’s a sense that you’re seeing much more of an HDR image’s potential here than you would typically expect with such an affordable TV.

The Q60B also stands out from many rivals with its sharpness. Native 4K images typically look crisp and full of texture, while the 4K upscaling of HD sources delivers exceptionally clean, crisp, and natural-looking results.

While these strengths add up to bright scenes – especially HDR bright scenes – that look eye-catching and dynamic, though, the Q60B’s inability to achieve really any level of localized light control makes it much less satisfying with dark scenes. Parts of dark scenes that should look black instead invariably look a rather washed-out gray, leaving them feeling flat and unconvincing compared with bright moments in the same TV show or film. 

This means that as well as feeling unsatisfying in themselves, the flat-looking dark scenes contribute to a sense of inconsistency that can be quite distracting when you’re trying to immerse yourself in a film.

Some of the TV’s settings can cause dark scenes to flicker a bit, too, as the screen reacts to small changes in average brightness levels, while colors in dark picture areas tend to look less punchy and convincing thanks to the infusion of gray washing over them. It’s noticeable, too, that dark scenes can reveal patches of cloudiness in the Q60B’s panel. 

Since we wouldn’t typically associate such clouding with Samsung mid-range or even budget LCD TVs, we can’t help but wonder if the push for an ‘air-slim’ design is at least partly to blame.

Another surprising picture gremlin finds motion looking a bit uncomfortable on the Q60B. While the motion presets on even Samsung’s flagship TVs are typically pretty unhelpful, at least it’s possible with those to get natural, clean-looking motion without too much trouble. With the Q60B, though, depending on which motion processing setting you use, you’re either left with quite glaring judder, distracting stuttering/frame dropping, or too many unwanted processing ‘glitches’.

  • Picture quality score: 3.5/5

Samsung Q60B review: Sound quality

  • OTS Lite processing for positional audio
  • Adaptive Sound capabilities
  • Q-Symphony support with Samsung soundbars

As well as potentially not helping the Q60B’s picture quality in some areas, its Air Slim design likely also contributes to its underwhelming audio performance. There just doesn’t seem to be enough physical space to create either the volume levels or dynamic range – especially where lower frequencies are concerned – to provide a really convincing accompaniment to anything more rambunctious than a daytime chat show. 

You can even clearly hear the TV physically give up the audio ghost during loud movie scenes that rise to a serious crescendo, with its soundstage suddenly becoming quieter rather than continuing to expand with the sound. 

While the Q60B’s sound lacks any remotely cinematic qualities, though, it does at least understand its limits, managing to avoid falling prey to crackles, buzzes, hums and drop outs for most of the time. This is actually preferable to a TV that tries to go beyond its capabilities and just makes a mess of things.

The Object Tracking Sound Lite processing, finally, does a surprisingly credible job of placing specific effects in the correct place on screen considering how few speakers it has at its disposal. This at least compensates a bit for the speakers’ lack of raw power and impact.

  • Sound quality score: 3/5

Samsung Q60B review: Design

  • Exceptionally slim profile
  • Solar-powered remote control
  • Multi-position feet

Take a quick walk around the Q60B, and you’ll struggle to believe its price. It’s incredibly thin, for starters – the proud recipient of an Air Slim design that makes practically every other non-OLED TV look a chunky monkey by comparison. 

The frame around the screen is pretty trim, too, while the two supporting feet (if you’re not wall-hanging the set) are so slim when viewed straight on that you can barely see them. All of this means that the Q60B does a very impressive job of letting you focus on the pictures it’s producing rather than the hardware that’s producing them.

You can adjust the width of the feet to suit different sizes of support furniture or, perhaps, to give you the space to tuck a small soundbar between them. 

The Q60B ships with two remote controls. One is a standard, button-heavy affair that looks a bit overwhelming but is actually pretty easy to learn your way around once you’ve used it for a few minutes. The other is a stripped-back smart remote featuring a much leaner, more button-light design and, best of all, a solar cell on its rear that means you can use it as much as you like without ever having to worry about replacing its batteries.

  • Design score: 4/5

Samsung Q60B review: Smart features & menus

  • Proprietary Samsung Tizen system
  • Extensive app collection

As ever with Samsung TVs, the Q60B’s smart interface and features are provided by a home-grown system built around Samsung’s Tizen OS. This has traditionally served Samsung very well – though the redesign ushered in for Samsung’s current range is a rare misstep.

The issue is that by moving to a full screen home page in place of the previous much more compact couple of ‘shelves’ overlying the picture, Samsung has made things feel more overwhelming. Plus it hasn’t made particularly great use of all the space available to it, making it feel harder rather than easier to quickly get to content you’re actually likely to want to watch.

Some aspects of the new menu navigation system aren’t helpful/logical either, especially when it comes to accessing the picture and sound set up menus.

On the upside, Samsung’s TV Plus service of fully streamed TV channels is now pretty expansive and includes more interesting content than it used to. Plus the main Tizen platform continues to cater for a huge line up of apps, including all the streaming services most people will want (with the exception of Google Play). 

Where a streaming app is supported, moreover, you can bet that it will be able to play 4K and HDR video if a service carries these key AV features. The only catch is that the Q60B’s lack of Dolby Vision support means it will only play basic HDR10 from services that support Dolby Vision.

The two issues we have are that it doesn't support ATSC 3.0 for 4K broadcasts in the US (though few budget TVs do), and in the UK it doesn't support the Freeview Play umbrella app for the UK’s main terrestrial TV catch up apps. However, Samsung does carry all the individual apps for these channels.

The Q60B provides extensive support for voice control via multiple voice recognition platforms, giving you a handy way to dodge some of the issues with the onscreen menus.

  • Smart features and menus score: 3.5/5

Samsung Q60B review: Gaming

  • Handy Gaming Hub for checking features
  • No 4K 120Hz support
  • Ultra-fast 9.4ms response time 

An affordable, unusually bright, colorful TV like the Samsung Q60B has excellent potential as a gaming display. Potential which it delivers on in some areas, but falls a little short in others.

Of massive appeal to the gaming world is its 9.4ms of input lag (the time between when a console sends an image to it, and when it appears on-screen) with 60Hz content when using its Game preset. This is one of the lowest numbers we’ve ever measured on a TV.

Also very welcome is a dedicated Gaming Hub in the TV’s menus that pulls together a host of streaming apps, games and services, such as Xbox Game Pass, Twitch and Nvidia Geforce Now. It’s easy to connect controllers to the TV, too, to play via cloud services.

The screen’s combination of brightness, rich colors, and impressive sharpness are well-suited to game graphics too. This sharpness with 4K sources also makes it a shame that none of the TV’s three HDMI inputs can support 4K at 120Hz feeds or variable refresh rates. The only gaming feature they can handle is automatic low latency mode switching. 

To be fair, 4K 120Hz and VRR support are currently very rare at the Q60B’s price point. But if TCL can do it, then you’d like to think Samsung could too. 

  • Gaming score: 3.5/5

Samsung Q60B review: Value

  • Recent reductions make it very competitive
  • Well featured for its money
  • Cheaper models often don’t have Quantum Dots

The fact that it recently received further price cuts instantly establishes today’s Q60B as a potential bargain. It builds on this impressively, though, by including a Quantum Dot system at a price where such color technology is not always found.

Its smart system is extremely rich in content for such an affordable TV too, while its bright, colorful and responsive pictures help it stand out from the usually much duller competition.

Its uninspiring sound quality, lack of cutting edge gaming graphics support and limited backlight control, though, mean that it can’t entirely escape its budget nature.

The Samsung Q60B isn’t consistent enough with its performance or features to warrant an unqualified recommendation. If you’re after an affordable TV that will deliver more brightness and richer color in a room that tends to be quite light, though, then it is a good option for its money. Its intense, sharp visuals and fast response time might make it a good gaming monitor, too.

Its lack of contrast and rather basic sound damage its potential as a serious home cinema TV, however, and it’s a shame that it doesn’t support the latest cutting-edge gaming graphics features.

  • Value score: 4/5

Teamgroup T-Create CLASSIC External SSD review

Teamgroup T-Create CLASSIC: Two minute review


Interface: Thunderbolt 3 or USB 3.2 Gen 2
Connector: USB Type-C
Colour: Silver
Drive: (1) NVMe SSD
Capacity: 1TB, 2TB and 4TB
Data Transfer Rate: Thunderbolt3 R/W up to 2700MB/s USB3.2 R/W up to 900MB/s
Size (LxWxH): 109.5mm x 65.0mm x 15.0mm
Weight: 180 g
Operating Systems: macOS 10.12+ (Time Machine Compatible), Windows® 10+, Linux
Box Contents: CLASSIC drive, USB-C to USB-C Cable
Warranty: 5-year limited warranty

Those wanting the best external drive performance opt for Thunderbolt connections over USB. With that choice, most are invariably directed to SanDisk Professional or OWC product lines to provide that connectivity.

Teamgroup has now thrown its hat in this particular ring with the T-Create Classic, a Thunderbolt and USB 3.2 compatible drive built to a very high standard.

As construction goes, the Classic’s minimalist styling milled-from-solid-aluminium approach is like what we’ve seen from other brands, but it avoids the usual military cliches.

While it keeps the SSD inside safe, the enclosure isn’t especially light, and the drive weighs 180g, including the cable.

There are no apparent means to take this enclosure apart, and if you found any, it would undoubtedly involve negating its warranty.

What we do know about inside is that this at its heart is an NVMe SSD, probably one to the PCIe 3.0 specification. Teamgroup sells branded NVMe drives, and it may be one of those, logically.

Avoiding smaller capacities, the Classic comes in 1TB, 2TB or 4TB options, and our review was performed with a 2TB drive.

The drive comes pre-formatted with the exFAT file system, avoiding the need to reformat the drive to have it recognised in Microsoft Windows and on the Apple macOS, a trick that SanDisk seems unwilling to embrace.

Depending on the interface used, either Thunderbolt or USB 3.2 Gen 2, the performance can vary significantly, with Thunderbolt being substantially faster at up to 2700MB/s. On USB 3.2 Gen 2, it's closer to 1000MB/s, and on a Gen 1 specification port, you might only see 500MB/s.

Therefore, spending the not-insignificant asking price of this hardware is probably only worth it if you generally use Thunderbolt equipment computers.

The T-Create Classic is an excellent example of a product that most people would choose if the price weren’t an issue. For business customers, an argument can be made that a justification for greater productivity and an increased likelihood of a recent backup make it worth the high price.

But for most home users, this is way too expensive to consider.

Teamgroup T-Create CLASSIC: Price and availability

.T-Create CLASSIC External SSD

  • How much does it cost? From $320 / £450 for the 2TB model
  • When is it out? It is available now
  • Where can you get it? Widely available from the larger online retailers in most regions.

For whatever curious reason, we’ve seen several external drive makers inflate their European pricing to crazy levels, and Teamgroup has joined that bandwagon.

Where the US price of the 2TB and 4TB Classic are $319.99 and $639.99, in the UK, those numbers are dramatically increased to £449.26 and £920.78. Based on current exchange rates, those prices are about 180% of the current US ones.

The 1TB version appears to be missing in action on Amazon, so it may be that the smallest drive has been discontinued.

A comparable product is the SanDisk Professional PRO-G40, which also offers Thunderbolt and USB compatibility, resilience and high performance. The Classic is cheaper than the PRO-G40, but that is also a costly option.

It is possible to get Thunderbolt SSDs for less than this, with the Glyph Atom being a good example. Alternatively, the Envoy Pro FX is another option, although it is even more expensive in the USA but cheaper in the UK.

If you want to save lots of money, Sabrent makes a Thunderbolt 3 NVMe enclosure for just $99 that you can place any spare M.2 NVMe drive inside, although the top speed with that enclosure is less than the pre-built solutions.

  • Value: 2 / 5

  • Simple design
  • One cable
  • LED indicator

Some customers like futuristic designs or take cues from military hardware, but the T-Create Classic offers a remarkably simplistic design where functionality is elevated above aesthetics.

The milling of the aluminium enclosure makes most of the corners rounded, although the top and bottom edges of each end are still sharp. Therefore, I wouldn’t be tempted to throw this drive into a bag with a tablet or laptop, as it would likely scratch the screen or lid in transit.

One end has the words Thunderbolt 3 on it, while the other has a USB-C port and the logos for Thunderbolt and SuperSpeed USB 10Gbits.

A 20cm single cable is included in the box that works with both Thunderbolt and USB connections but assumes that you have USB-C ports and not a legacy USB-A. Why, at this high price, Teamgroup couldn’t include a USB-C to USB-A cable is a mystery, as this is something owners will invariably need at some point for this drive.

The underside has two rubber strips that prevent the Classic from damaging any surface it is placed, the drive capacity and Teamgroup branding that includes a QR code to take you to the company website.

On the topside is the T-Create logo, with a tiny hole for an activity LED to be seen and nothing else of note.

From a design perspective, there isn’t much to the Classic, and it could well be argued that its simplicity gives customers less opportunity to dislike its styling when making a purchase.

  • Design: 4 / 5

Teamgroup T-Create CLASSIC: Features

  • Robust enclosure
  • No software
  • Up to 4TB of space

The T-Create Classic is patently durable, but there aren't any other special features.

However, scanning through the promotional material, no actual claims are made for how robust this drive is. We’d assume, mostly because of the lack of moving parts and solidity of the enclosure, that it could absorb the odd knock or fall, but no numbers are provided to back that conclusion up. The only hint that it is truly resilient is that a five-year limited warranty is included, and the company does accept that “TEAMGROUP’s sole and maximum liability is to repair or replace the product or refund the money and is at TEAMGROUP’s sole discretion.”

What we did notice was that when the drive is used, the case gets warm to the touch, indicating that there is a good thermal connection between the internal drive and the enclosure. That should keep the drive inside from overheating, and that will ultimately extend its life.

When the product arrived with us, Teamgroup had already formatted it with exFAT making it suitable for both Windows and Mac computers. If you want, though, you can reformat it to NTFS for Windows or APFS for Mac. It's disappointing that you don't get any software with this drive since it's pricey - at least Mac users get Time Machine compatibility which is nice. Having some sync software for PC would have been great too, but none is provided.

Our review hardware had 2TB of capacity, but this drive can come with up to 4TB of storage space. While this might seem large by current SSD standards, new NAND wafers are being readied that will offer much greater capacities before this year is over. And, therefore while having 4TB as an option is good, in a couple of years, it won’t seem especially large, and the price of a 4TB drive will be significantly less.

Teamgroup T-Create CLASSIC: Performance

.T-Create CLASSIC External SSD

CrystalDiskMark 8.0.4 Benchmark (Image credit: Mark Pickavance)
  • Quick over Thunderbolt
  • Slower over USB
  • Software encryption only

Giving the Classic its best opportunity to shine, we connected it to a Lenovo ThinkPad Z16 Gen 1 laptop and its USB 4.0/Thunderbolt ports.

This optimal scenario returned read speeds of 3120MB/s reads and 1838MB/s writes using CrystalDiskMark 8.0.4. The less optimistic AJA benchmark scored reads at 2322MB/s and writes at just 1432MB/s, but that is still very quick by external drive performance standards.

The only small portable drive we’ve seen that is faster than this is the SanDisk PRO-G40, and that was much faster at writing, but only a little quicker at reads.

Compared to a typical USB 3.2 Gen 2 drive performance of around 1000MB/s, the Classic is far superior at reading and writing over Thunderbolt.

When connected via USB, the interface becomes the limiting factor in any file transfer.

The USB interface can operate in USB SuperSpeed and SuperSpeed+ modes, and those represent the 5Gbit/s and 10Gbit/s channels that are designated USB 3.2 Gen 1 and USB 3.2 Gen 2 under the current USB naming convention.

When we tested the Classic in those modes, it was oddly the read speed that declined more than the write performance. Our Gen 2 results showed around 700MB/s reads, but 1000MB/s writes. Not sure why read doesn’t perform well under USB 3.2 Gen 2.

Going to Gen 1 USB resulted in lower than 500MB/s transfers in both directions.

The drive inside the Classic doesn’t support hardware encryption, but you can use software encryption through solutions like Microsoft BitLocker to make the contents of the drive secure from anyone who might steal it.

.T-Create CLASSIC External SSD

  • Performance: 4 / 5

Teamgroup constantly surprises us with products that exceed our expectations, and the Classic is undoubtedly one of those.

The issue for the T-Create Classic is that the scale of NAND wafers is about to increase substantially, while the cost per GB will probably fall dramatically. If buyer's regret isn't an issue for you, then the Classic is available now.

But those looking to invest for the medium to long term might want to consider less expensive options and buy again when larger and cheaper drives appear.

The T-Create Classic is a good product, but we’re not convinced that it is great value even in the short term.
