ABOUT THIS TV

Grundig 65GGU8960B 400x400 Image Grundig 65GGU8960B

The 65GGU8960B is a 65 inch 4K TV from Grundig, launched in the year 2021. It comes with a 10-bit IPS panel.

The max. resolution it can achieve is 3840 x 2160 with a refresh rate of 60 Hz and a pixel density of 68 ppi.

Picture Quality

After screen size and resolution, the next important spec of a display that impacts picture quality is Color Gamut.

This TV doesn't come with a color gamut specification, so we have to make an assumption based on its panel type.

Now, since the TV features a 65 inch screen, it won't come with a cheap panel, so here we can assume its equivalent sRGB coverage to be 90-100% or above. Undoubtedly The color quality on this TV should be Lifelike! Meaning it is capable of producing accurate colors AS IT IS intended.

What Color Gamut means ?

Color gamut spec of a display is the measurement of the range of colors that it can show.

In other words, this specification determines the ability of a display to produce accurate colors. A display with low gamut coverage will miss out on some colors (such as deep red), so the image produced will look "washed out" in colors.

Different manufacturers use different measurement standards to define color gamut. Such as — sRGB (most popular), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 etc.

But don't worry, here is a chart that will help you choosing a TV with good color accuracy.

Color Gamut Chart

After color gamut, the static contrast ratio of a TV holds almost equal role in picture quality.

What is Static Contrast ?

The static contrast ratio of a TV corresponds to its Black levels. A Display with low static contrast ratio (<1000:1) will not produce deep blacks. Moreover, such displays often suffer from backlight bleeds such as below:

Needless to say, this will impact your viewing experience considerably, especially in a dark room.

Static contrast ratio and resolution go hand in hand when it comes to details. To put it into perspective, a TV with low contrast ratio will produce less shades of colors, thus lesser detail overall.

If given a choice, I will prefer a FHD TV with high contrast ratio over a 4K TV with low contrast ratio.

This TV is rated with a static contrast ratio of 8000:1., good enough to produce deep blacks. For the record, it also comes with local dimming backlight technology which is a plus.

HDR is also supported on this TV in form of HDR and HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma).

As for brightness, it is can produce a peak brightness of 250 nits. The backlight of this TV is powered by Direct LED technology.

Gaming Performance

Now if you are planning to use your TV other than watching videos — say as a PC monitor or for gaming purposes, you would want to get a TV that features the lowest input lag. For gaming however, both input lag and response time affects the performance.

Sadly, Grundig did not specify the input lag on this unit. But as this is not a cheap TV from Grundig, we can expect an input lag of less than 20ms.

What is Input Lag and Why it matters ?

This lag is the latency at which key-presses or mouse movements changes the content of the screen. For casual Non-FPS games, input lag doesn't matter much.

Although for better experience, look for a TV that comes with an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.

Ergonomics and Dimensions

Now, speaking of ergonomics — a VESA mount with interface size of 400 x 400 mm is provided for wall-mounting. However, there is no Swivel, Tilt or Pivot feature support on this TV.

The TV measures 65 inches vertically and 57.75 inches horizontally. In total, it weighs approximately 17.5 KGs.

Hardware and Audio

The TV is powered by Quad Core CPU. There is no mention about the total available RAM on the TV's specsheet.

To power its UI, the TV runs Android TV Operating System.

For display connectivity, Grundig has provided three HDMI 2.0 ports on this TV.

To connect USB devices, you will have two USB 2.0 ports. Other connectivity ports include — 1x Satellite In (F-type), 1x Antenna (RF), 1x CI+ 1.3 and 1x Ethernet RJ45.

For connecting to this TV wirelessly, the manufacturer has provided Wi-Fi (2.5Ghz only) and Bluetooth.

Now, speaking of speakers, Grundig has provided 2 x 10W built-in speakers on the 65GGU8960B.

Now, coming to power consumption, it uses 114.24W on average and 0.45W on standby.

For powering this unit, you will need either a 110V or 220V outlet @ 50Hz-60Hz.
