The 50A6H is a 50 inch 4K TV from Hisense, launched in the year 2022. It comes with a 10-bit VA panel.
The maximum resolution it can achieve is 3840 x 2160 @ 60 Hz with a pixel density of 89 ppi.
After screen size and resolution, the very next feature of a display that will impact your viewing experience is its Color Gamut.
Hisense did not provide a color gamut specification for this TV. But don't worry, we have other means to guess that.
Considering the TV features amassive 50 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. The color quality on this TV should be Lifelike! It is capable of producing color accurate images out of the box.
What Color Gamut means ?
Color gamut spec of a display is a measure of the range of colors that it can show.
A panel with poor color reproduction will produce washed out colors that will spoil your immersive experience.
Different manufacturers use different measurement standards to specify 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.
Other than color accuracy, the static contrast of a TV similarly impacts its picture quality.
The importance of static contrast ratio
Static contrast ratio of a TV corresponds to its Black levels. A TV with low static contrast ratio (<1000:1) will not produce deep blacks. Also, such TVs are likely to suffer from backlight bleeds such as below:The image is an example of another display, it is not this one
Obviously this will affect your experience, especially in a dark room.
Also, a TV with high constrast ratio enables you to see more details. So, resolution and static contrast ratio go hand in hand.
If given a choice, always 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., well enough to achieve deep blacks and eye-catching visuals. The panel comes with local dimming which is a plus.
Dolby Vision, HDR10, HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) and HDR10+ are also supported on this TV.
Coming to brightness, the peak luminance it can achieve is 300 nits. The backlight of this TV is powered by Direct LED technology.
If you aren't into gaming, you can ignore these specs. But if you are also going to use the TV for gaming or use it as a PC monitor, you would want to get a TV with the lowest input lag and response time.
The input lag on the Hisense 50A6H is 20 ms and its minimum response time is N/A. It is good enough for casual and non-FPS games but is not suitable for competitive or FPS gameslike CSGO.
What is Input lag ?
This lag is the amount of time at which your inputs changes the content of the TV. Though, this won't matter much if you aren't into competitive/FPS games like call of duty.
Although for better experience, look for a TV that features an input lag and response time of < 20ms.
