The 43R7G5 is a 43 inch 4K TV from Hisense. It was launched in 2021. It comes with a 10-bit IPS panel with Anti-glare/Matte finish.
It can achieve a maximum resolution of 3840 x 2160 @ 60 Hz with a pixel density of 103 ppi.
After screen size and resolution, the next most important specification of a display is its Color Reproduction Accuracy (defined by its color gamut specification).
Hisense did not provide a color gamut rating for this TV. But don't worry, we have other means to guess that.
Considering the TV comes with a 10bit IPS panel, we can safely assume its equivalent sRGB coverage to be 100% or above. Undoubtedly The color accuracy on this TV should be Lifelike!
What Color Gamut means ?
Color gamut spec of a TV is a measure of the range of colors that it can produce.
A panel with poor color accuracy will produce undersaturated colors that will spoil the immersion.
Different manufacturers use different measurement standards to define color gamut. Viz — sRGB (standard RGB), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 etc.
But don't worry, below is a chart that will help you choosing a TV with good color accuracy.
Now, next in the list of important specifications that will impact your experience is Static Contrast.
Understanding Static Contrast
There are two types of contrast specifications for a TV. Static and Dynamic. We are interested in static contrast ratio as dynamic doesn't matter much.
Static contrast defines the intensity of black levels. That is, a TV with static contrast ratio < 1000:1 will produce black images something like this:
Moreover, such TVs are likely be prone to backlight bleeds that will rob your experience — as shown below.The image is an example of another display, it is not this one
Also, a TV with high constrast ratio lets you to see more details. So, resolution and static contrast ratio go hand in hand in a sense.
We couldn't find a static contrast ratio specification for this TV. Again we have to make an assumption based on the TV's other specs. FYI — IPS panels come with a static contrast ratio between 700:1 - 1500:1. For a 4K TV, we can guess the ratio would be 1200:1 or above.
HDR10, HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) and Dolby Vision are also supported on this TV, so that's a plus.
Coming to brightness, the peak brightness the TV can produce is 250 nits with the help of Direct LED backlight.
If you aren't into gaming, you can safely ignore these specs. But if you are also going to use the TV for playing games or use it as a PC monitor, you should get a TV with the lowest input lag and response time.
Sadly, there is no specification for input lag on this TV. But since this is not a cheap TV from Hisense, we can expect an input lag of less than 20ms.
What is Input Lag and Why it matters ?
This lag is the amount of time at which inputs changes the content of the screen. For casual Non-FPS games, input lag doesn't matter much.
Although for better experience, get a TV that features an input lag and response time of < 20ms.
Dimensions and Ergonomics
The width of this TV is 37.91 inches while its height is 24.17 inches.
Coming to thickness, it is just 2.91 inches thick. Overall it weighs around 6.9 kgs including stand. Without stand, it weighs 6.8 Kgs.
Now, speaking of ergonomics — a VESA mount with interface size of 300 x 200 mm is provided for wall-mounting. There is no Swivel, Tilt or Pivot feature support in this TV.
Hardware and Audio
Speaking of OS, the Hisense 43R7G5 runs Roku TV Operating System.
For display connectivity, Hisense has provided three HDMI 2.0 (ARC; CEC) ports and one AV Composite In (Video + L/R) port on this TV.
For connecting USB devices, it includes one USB 2.0 port. Other connectivity ports include — 1x Cable/Antenna In (F-type female) and 1x Ethernet RJ45.
For connecting to this TV wirelessly, you will have — Wi-Fi (5Ghz + 2.5Ghz) and Wifi-Direct.
For audio, it is packaged with 2 x 7W built-in speakers.
Now, coming to power usage, on average, this TV consumes around 144 watts and on standby, it takes 0.5 watts.
It supports a power outlet of 100 V - 120 V/50 Hz - 60 Hz.
