Launched in the year 2021, the 65R7G5 is a 65" 4K TV from Hisense. It features a 10-bit IPS panel with Anti-glare/Matte finish.
It can display a max 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 is its Color Reproduction Accuracy (defined by its color gamut specification).
This TV doesn't come with a color gamut specification, 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 quality on this TV will be Lifelike! Meaning it will produce accurate colors out of the box.
What Color Gamut means ?
Color gamut specification of a display indicates the range of colors that the TV can display.
Meaning, this specification tells the ability of a TV to produce accurate colors. A panel with low 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.
But you don't need to worry about that, here is a chart that will help you choosing a TV with good color accuracy.
Other than color accuracy, the static contrast ratio of a TV has equally important role in picture quality.
What is Static Contrast ratio ?
There are 2 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 specification tells the intensity of black levels. That is, a TV with SC ratio less than 1000:1 may produce black images something like this:
Apart from this, such TVs may suffer from backlight bleeds that will affect your experience — as shown below.The image is an example of another display, it is not this one
Think of static contrast as another dimension to details — just like resolution. To put it into perspective, a TV with low contrast ratio will produce less shades of colors, 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.
There's no mention of this spec in this TV's official datasheet. So we have to make an assumption again based on the TV's other specs. FYI — IPS panels come with a static contrast ratio between 700:1 - 1500:1. For a 4K TV, we can assume the ratio of Hisense 65R7G5 would be >= 1200:1.
HDR is also supported on this TV in form of HDR10, HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) and Dolby Vision.
Coming to brightness, it can go as bright as 250 nits with the help of Direct LED backlight.
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 get a TV with the lowest input lag and response time.
Sadly, we cannot find the input lag specification for this unit. Now, since this is not a cheap TV from Hisense, we can expect an input lag of less than 20ms.
What is Input Lag and Why it matters ?
This lag is the amount of time at which key-presses/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, get a TV that has an input lag and response time of < 20ms.
Ergonomics and Dimensions
Now, speaking of 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. Swivel, Tilt or Pivot features are not supported on this unit.
The TV measures 65 inches vertically and 57.17 inches horizontally. It is just 2.91 inches thick. It weighs around 16.5 Kgs and an additional 0.2 kgs including stand.
Hardware and Audio
The UI on this TV is powered by Roku TV Operating System.
For display connectivity, Hisense has provided three HDMI 2.0 (ARC; CEC) ports and one AV Composite In 3.5 mm jack port on this TV.
For connecting USB devices, it includes one USB 2.0 port. Other connectivity ports include — 1x Cable/Antenna In (F-type female) and 1x Ethernet RJ45.
Regarding wireless connectivity on this TV, the manufacturer has provided Wi-Fi (5Ghz + 2.5Ghz) and Wifi-Direct.
Now, for audio, Hisense has provided 2 x 10W built-in speakers on the TV.
Speaking of power usage, on average, it uses about 256W and on standby, it takes 0.5 W.
For powering this unit, you will need an 100 V - 120 V/50 Hz - 60 Hz outlet.
