Launched in the year 2021, the 65A6G is a 65" 4K TV from Hisense. It comes with a 10-bit IPS panel. It can achieve a maximum resolution of 3840 x 2160 with a refresh rate of 60 Hz and pixel density of 68 ppi.
After screen size and resolution, the next important feature of a display that will impact your viewing experience is Color Gamut.
Hisense did not provide a color gamut specification for this TV. So we have to take a guess. Now, since the TV features amassive 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 accuracy on this TV will be Lifelike! It will produce color accurate images out of the box.
Understanding Color Gamut
Color gamut spec of a TV indicates the range of colors that the TV can produce.
A panel with poor color reproduction 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 Adobe RGB, rec.2020.
But you don't need to worry about that, below is a chart that will help you choosing a TV with good color accuracy.
After color gamut, the static contrast ratio of a TV has equally important role in picture quality.
Understanding the static contrast ratio
A TV with high enough static contrast ratio will produce natural deep blacks while a TV with low contrast ratio (<1000:1) will produce images that may look muddy as shown in the below image.
As you see, this will affect your experience considerably.
Other than black levels, 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, I will prefer a FHD TV with high contrast ratio over a 4K TV with low contrast ratio.
This TV features a static contrast ratio of 1000 : 1. — good enough for a TV in this range.
HDR is also supported on this TV in form of Dolby Vision, HDR10 and HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma).
Coming to brightness, it can go as bright as 260 nits with the help of Direct LED backlight.
If you are planning to use your TV just for content consumption, you can safely ignore these specifications. But if you are also planning to use the TV for gaming or use it as a PC monitor, you should get a TV with the lowest input lag and response time.
The input lag on this TV is 11 ms and its minimum response time is 7 ms. It is good enough for both casual and competitive/FPS games.
Understanding Input lag and response time
This lag is the latency at which key-presses or mouse movements changes the content of your display. Though, this won't matter much if you aren't into competitive/FPS games like call of duty.
For best of both worlds, look for a TV that comes with an input lag and response time of < 20ms.
