Launched in the year 2021, the 65U7G AU is a 65" 4K TV from Hisense. It features a 10-bit VA panel with Anti-glare/Matte finish.
It can achieve a maximum resolution of 3840 x 2160 with a refresh rate of 60 Hz and pixel density of 68 ppi.
After screen size and resolution, the very next spec of a display that impacts picture quality is Color Gamut.
Hisense did not provide a color gamut rating for this TV. So we have to take a guess. As this 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 should be Lifelike! It is capable of producing color accurate images AS IT IS intended.
What Color Gamut means ?
Color gamut specification of a display is the measurement of the range of colors that it can produce.
In layman terms, this specification indicates the ability of a display to produce accurate colors. A panel with low color gamut coverage will miss out on some colors (such as deep red), thus producing a "washed out" picture.
It is specified in different units - sRGB(most popular), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 Adobe RGB, rec.2020.
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.
After color gamut, the static contrast specification of a TV holds almost equal role in picture quality.
The importance of static contrast ratio
A TV with high enough static contrast ratio will produce natural deep blacks while a TV with low contrast ratio (<1000:1) will produce images that look dusty as shown in below image.
As you can see, this will affect your experience considerably.
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.
This TV is rated with a static contrast ratio of 8000:1., well enough to achieve deep blacks. The panel comes with local dimming backlight technology which is a plus.
HDR is also supported on this TV in form of Dolby Vision, HDR10 and HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma).
As for brightness, it is capable of producing a peak luminance of 250 nits. The backlight of this TV is powered by Direct LED (Full-Array Local Dimming) technology.
If you are not into gaming, you can safely ignore these specs. But if you are also planning to use the TV for playing games or use it as a PC monitor, you should get a TV with the lowest input lag and response time.
Sadly, we cannot find the input lag specification for this unit. Now, as this is not a cheap TV from Hisense, input lag on this TV could be 20ms or below.
What is Input Lag and Why it matters ?
This lag is the latency at which inputs changes the content of the screen. 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 has an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.
Dimensions and Ergonomics
The vertical and horizontal measurements of this TV are 56.97 inches and 35.79 inches respectively.
In terms of thickness, it is just 3.11 inches thick.
It weighs around 19.5 kilograms and 0.5 kgs extra if you include 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 300 x 200 mm. Swivel, Tilt or Pivot features are not supported on this unit.
