The 65A7200G is a 65 inch 4K TV from Hisense, launched in the year 2021. It features 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.
Now, the very next spec of a display that defines picture quality is Color Gamut.
This TV doesn't provide a color gamut specification, so we have to make an assumption based on its panel type.
Now, since the TV features a big 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. The color quality on this TV will be Lifelike! It will produce color accurate images.
Understanding the Color Gamut Specification
Color gamut spec of a display is a measure of the range of colors that the display can display.
A panel with poor color accuracy will produce undersaturated colors that will spoil the immersion.
It is specified in different units - sRGB,sRGB (standard RGB), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 to name a few. It is upto the manufacturer which one they choose.
But don't worry, below is a chart that will help you choosing a TV with good color accuracy.
After color gamut, next in the list is Static Contrast.
What is Static Contrast ?
A TV with high enough static contrast ratio will produce deep blacks while a TV with low contrast ratio (<1000:1) will produce images that will look dusty as shown below.
As you can imagine, this will rob your experience considerably.
Think of static contrast as another dimension to details — just like resolution. To put it into perspective, a TV with low contrast ratio will show both dark gray and black as black, so lesser detail overall.
If given a choice, always prefer a FHD TV with high contrast ratio over a 4K TV with low contrast ratio.
There's no mention of this spec in this TV's official specsheet. Again we have to take a guess based on the TV's other specs. In general, IPS panels come with a static contrast ratio between 700:1 - 1500:1. Considering its a 4K TV, we can assume the ratio would be atleast 1200:1 or above.
HDR is also supported on this TV in form of HDR10 and HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma).
As for brightness, the peak luminance the TV can achieve is 250 nits, powered by Direct LED backlight technology.
If you are planning to use your TV solely for content consumption, you can ignore these specifications. But if you are also planning to use the TV for gaming or use it as a PC monitor, you would want to take a TV with the lowest input lag and response time.
Unfortunately, there is no specification for input lag on this TV. Now, since this is not a cheap TV, input lag on this TV could be 20ms or below.
What is Input Lag and Why it matters ?
This lag is the amount of time at which key-presses or mouse movements 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 comes with an input lag and response time of < 20ms.
Dimensions and Ergonomics
Vertically, the TV measures 65 inches and horizontally 57.44 inches.
It is just 3.43 inches thick.
It weighs around 17.5 Kgs, another -0.5 kgs if you include stand.
Now, coming to 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.
