Launched in the year 2022, the 65A7H is a 65" 4K TV from Hisense. It features a 10-bit IPS panel with Anti-glare/Matte finish.
The max. resolution it can display 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 spec of a display that impacts picture quality is its Color Gamut.
The Hisense 65A7H comes with a DCI P3 color gamut coverage of 90% — equivalent to 122.73% sRGB coverage. The color accuracy on this TV will be Lifelike!
What Color Gamut means ?
Color gamut specification of a TV is a measure of the range of colors that the display can display.
What this means is, it determines the ability of a TV to produce accurate colors. A TV with low color gamut coverage will miss out on some colors (such as deep red), so the image produced will look "washed out" in colors.
It is specified in different units - sRGB,sRGB (standard RGB), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 etc.
As for this TV its color gamut is specified using DCI P3.
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.
What is Static Contrast ?
There are two types of contrast specifications for a TV. Static and Dynamic. We are interested in static contrast ratio. Dynamic doesn't matter much.
Static contrast tells the intensity of black levels. That is, a TV with static contrast ratio less than 1000:1 may produce black images something like this:
Note that, such TVs are likely be prone to backlight bleeds that will affect your experience — as shown below.The image is an example of another display, it is not this one
Other than black levels, a TV with high constrast ratio allows 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 features a static contrast ratio of 1200 : 1. — good enough for a TV in this range. 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+.
Coming to brightness, it can go as bright as 350 nits. The backlight of this TV is powered by Direct LED technology.
If you are planning to use your TV solely for content consumption, you can ignore these specifications. But if you are also going to use the TV for gaming or use it as a PC monitor, you should get a TV that features the lowest input lag and response time.
The input lag on the Hisense 65A7H 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 your inputs changes the content of the TV. For casual Non-FPS games, input lag doesn't matter much.
Although for better experience, get a TV that has an input lag and response time of < 20ms.
