Launched in the year 2022, the 65A6H is a 65" 4K TV from Hisense. It features 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.
After screen size and resolution, the next important feature of a display that impacts picture quality is its Color Gamut.
This TV doesn't provide a color gamut specification, so we have to make an assumption based on its panel type.
As this 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! It will produce accurate colors out of the box.
Understanding Color Gamut
Color gamut spec of a TV is the measurement of the range of colors that the TV can produce.
In layman terms, this specification determines the ability of a display to produce accurate colors. A display with low color gamut coverage will miss out on some colors (such as deep red), thus producing a "washed out" picture.
Different manufacturers use different units to define color gamut. Such as — sRGB, NTSC 1953, DCI P3 etc.
But don't worry, below is a chart that you can use to choose a TV with good color accuracy.
Now, after color gamut, you should look at the static contrast specification as it influences the picture quality substantially.
Understanding the static contrast ratio
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 tells the intensity of black levels. That is, a TV with SC ratio < 1000:1 will produce black images something like this:
Note that, such TVs may suffer from backlight bleeds that will rob your experience — as shown below.The image is an example of another display, it is not this one
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 show both dark gray and black as black, thus lesser detail overall.
If given a choice, always prefer a FHD TV with high contrast ratio over a 4K TV with low contrast ratio.
This TV features a static contrast ratio of 8000:1., well enough to display deep blacks and eye-catching visuals. For the record, it also comes with local dimming backlight which is a plus.
HDR is also supported on this TV in form of Dolby Vision, HDR10, HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) and HDR10+.
As for brightness, it can go as bright as 300 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 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 65A6H is 20 ms and its minimum response time is N/A. It is acceptable for casual and non-FPS games but is not suitable for competitive or FPS games like COD.
What is Input lag ?
This lag is the latency at which inputs changes the content of your TV. For casual Non-FPS games, input lag doesn't matter much.
But ideally, get a TV that has an input lag and response time of < 20ms.
Dimensions and Ergonomics
The vertical and horizontal measurements of this TV are 57.17 inches and 35.28 inches respectively.
It is 2.91 inches thick. In total this TV weighs approximately 17.7 KGs (including stand). Without stand, it weighs 16.5 Kilograms.
Now, speaking of ergonomics — VESA mount is supported on this TV with an interface size of 400 x 300 mm. The unit doesn't come with either Swivel, Tilt or Pivot support.
Hardware and Audio
The internals of this TV is powered by 4-Core (2x ARM Cortex-A73 + 2x ARM Cortex-A52) CPU along with a (ARM Mali-G51) GPU.. There is no data on the total RAM on the TV's specsheet.
The UI on this TV is powered by VIDAA U5.0 Operating System.
For display connectivity, Hisense has provided three HDMI 2.0 (CEC) ports and one AV Composite In 3.5 mm jack port on this TV.
To connect USB devices, it includes two USB 2.0 ports. Other connectivity ports include — 1x Satellite In (F-type female), 1x Antenna (RF) (female), 1x CI+ 1.4 and 1x Ethernet RJ45 (100 Mbps).
Wireless connectivity options on this TV include Wi-Fi (5Ghz + 2.5Ghz), Wifi-Direct and Bluetooth 5.0.
Speaking of speakers, it is packaged with 2 x 10W speakers.
In terms of power usage, this TV consumes 114.24 Watts on average and 0.5 Watts on standby.
For powering this unit, you will require an 100 V - 120 V/50 Hz - 60 Hz outlet.
