ABOUT THIS TV

Hisense 55U7G 400x400 Image Hisense 55U7G

The 55U7G is a 55 inch 4K TV from Hisense, launched in the year 2021. It comes with a 10-bit VA panel with Anti-glare/Matte finish. The max. resolution it can achieve is 3840 x 2160 @ 120 Hz with a pixel density of 80 ppi.

Picture Quality

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

This TV doesn't provide a color gamut specification, so we have to take a guess.

Now, since the TV features a 55 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 will produce color accurate images by default.

Understanding the Color Gamut Specification

Color gamut spec of a display indicates the range of colors that it can produce.

A TV with poor color accuracy will produce washed out colors that will not be pretty to look at.

It is specified in different units - sRGB,sRGB (standard RGB), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 etc. It is upto the manufacturer which one they choose.

But don't worry, below is a chart that you can use to choose a TV with good color accuracy.

Color Gamut Chart

Now, after color gamut, you should look at the static contrast specification as it impacts the picture quality the same way.

Understanding the static contrast ratio

A TV with low static contrast ratio will not produce deep blacks and can bleed backlight as shown below:

Backlight bleed exampleThe image is an example of another display, it is not this one

The above TV's static contrast is 800:1. So make sure you get a TV with a static contrast of >= 1000:1. More the better.

Like resolution, the static contrast ratio is also equally responsible for details. To put it into perspective, a TV with low contrast ratio will produce less shades of colors, thus lesser detail overall.

This TV is rated with a static contrast ratio of 8000:1., enough to produce deep blacks and eye-catching visuals. For the record, it also comes with local dimming which is a plus.

Dolby Vision, HDR10, HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) and HDR10+ are also supported on this TV.

As for brightness, the peak brightness the TV can produce is 1000 nits, powered by Direct LED (Full-Array Local Dimming) backlight technology. This amount of brightness is good enough even for a room with sun's rays in!

Gaming Performance

If you aren't interested in gaming, you can ignore these specs. But if you are also going to use the TV for playing games or use it as a PC monitor, you would want to take a TV that features the lowest input lag and response time.

Sadly, we cannot find the input lag specification for this unit. Now, as this is not a cheap TV from Hisense, input lag on this TV could be 20ms or below.

Understanding Input lag and response time

This lag is the latency at which inputs changes the content of the screen. Though, this won't matter much if you aren't into competitive/FPS games like call of duty.

For best of both worlds, get a TV that has an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.

Ergonomics and Dimensions

Speaking of ergonomics — If you plan to wall mount the TV, you can make use of the VESA mount provided with this TV, which by the way has an interface size of 300 x 200 mm. However, there is no Swivel, Tilt or Pivot feature support on this TV.

The TV measures 55 inches vertically and 48.31 inches horizontally.

It is just 3.46 inches thick.

It weighs approximately 14.7 kilograms and 0.3 kgs extra if you include stand. So plan your space accordingly.

For connecting to this TV wirelessly, the manufacturer has provided Wi-Fi (5Ghz + 2.5Ghz), Wifi-Direct and Bluetooth.

Speaking of power consumption, it consumes 114 watts on average and 0.5 watts on standby.
