What are the differences between the 60B and 60BD TVs
To be clear right away, the technical specifications of the TVs are the same. The difference between the models is in the warranty, the 60QBA model TV has a standard statutory warranty of one year. The Q60BD model has an extended warranty of five years. In both cases, the warranty is provided by Samsung.
You certainly want to know why there is such a different warranty, maybe televisions with a 5 year warranty are better or more reliable, but they are not. I’ll say it again, these are exactly the same TVs.
The difference in warranty is due to the fact that the Q60BD is purchased in bulk from Samsung by the Costco chain. Since Costco has purchased a large batch of TVs, Samsung does a small discount on them. This benefits Samsung by greatly reducing the logistics chain. The televisions are shipped to Costco directly from the factory, bypassing wholesale warehouses, which reduces product overload. Costco receives the televisions and delivers them to stores. This benefits both Samsung and Costco, but Costco, as a wholesaler, has the right to demand some preferences to attract customers to its stores.
The 5-year warranty is such a unique benefit that is likely to attract a customer to buy a TV at Costco. And the difference in the model number is needed so that service centers can understand that this TV model is covered by a 5-year warranty.
You can see the warranties for both TV models on samsung’s official website.
Now you know the differences between these TV models.
Technical specifications of Samsung Q60B and Q60BD TVs
I will not describe in detail the technical specifications, you should know that this is a budget QLED TV model. So, the TV has a display with a color depth of 8 bits. To increase the number of shades, dithering, fast backlight flicker is applied, such display is called 8 bit + FRC. HDR content will display very mediocre. The display also supports a maximum of 60 Hz, that is 60 frames per second. This is a TV for watching standard video such as cable TV or streaming services, it has a small price compared to other series of QLED TVs, slightly better than LED, but not good enough for QLED.
