Launched in the year 2022, the 65A9H is a 65" 4K TV from Hisense. It features a True 10-bit OLED panel with Anti-glare/Matte finish. It can achieve a maximum resolution of 3840 x 2160 with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and pixel density of 68 ppi.
After screen size and resolution, the next important spec to look for in a display is its Color Reproduction Accuracy, which is defined by its color gamut specification.
Speaking of which, this TV features a DCI P3 coverage of 97% — equivalent to 132.27% sRGB. The color accuracy on this TV should be Lifelike!
What Color Gamut means ?
Color gamut specification of a TV is a measure of the range of colors that the display can show.
A panel with poor color accuracy will produce undersaturated colors that will spoil your immersive experience.
Different manufacturers use different units to specify color gamut. Such as — sRGB (most popular), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 to name a few.
In case of this TV, it is specified in DCI P3.
But you don't need to worry about that, below is a chart that you can use to choose a TV with good color accuracy.
Now, after color gamut, the static contrast ratio of a TV has equally important role in picture quality.
The importance of static contrast ratio
The static contrast ratio of a TV corresponds to its Black levels. A TV with low static contrast ratio (<1000:1) will not produce deep blacks. Moreover, such displays may suffer from backlight bleeds such as below:The image is an example of another display, it is not this one
This will rob your viewing experience, especially in a dark room.
Also note, 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, I will prefer a FHD TV with high contrast ratio over a 4K TV with low contrast ratio.
For a display with OLED panel, its static constrast should be Infinity : 1. So no need to worry about this.
HDR is also supported on this TV in form of HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma), HDR10+, HDR10, Dolby Vision and Dolby Vision IQ.
As for brightness, it can go as bright as 800 nits.This amount of brightness is good enough even for a room with sun's rays in!
If you are not planning to game on this TV, you can ignore these specs. But if you are also going to use the TV for gaming or use it as a PC monitor, make sure to take a TV that features the lowest input lag and response time.
The input lag on this TV is 5 ms and its minimum response time is 3 ms. Gamers will love this TV.
What is Input lag ?
This lag is the amount of time at which device inputs changes the content of the TV. Though, this won't matter much if you aren't into competitive/FPS games like call of duty.
But ideally, look for a TV that features an input lag and response time of < 20ms.
Dimensions and Ergonomics
The TV measures 65 inches vertically and 56.97 inches horizontally. It is 1.93 inches thick.
It weighs 27.2 kilograms and 5.1 kgs extra including stand.
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 400 x 300 mm. Tilt or Pivot are not supported on this TV, but it does support Swivel.
