The 65U7G PRO is a 65 inch 4K TV from Hisense, launched in the year 2021. It features a 10-bit IPS-ADS panel with Anti-glare/Matte finish. The max. resolution it can display is 3840 x 2160 @ 144 Hz with a pixel density of 68 ppi.
After screen size and resolution, the next most important specification to look for in a display is its Color Reproduction (defined by its color gamut specification).
This TV comes with 97% DCI P3 color gamut coverage. FYI, this is equivalent to 132.27% sRGB. The color accuracy on this TV will be Lifelike!
What is Color gamut ?
Color gamut spec of a TV indicates the range of colors that the TV can show.
Meaning, this specification determines the ability of a display to produce accurate colors. A display 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. It is upto the manufacturer which one they choose.
As for this TV its color gamut is specified using DCI P3.
But don't worry, here is a chart that will help you choosing a TV with good color accuracy.
Now, after color gamut, the static contrast of a TV similarly impacts its picture quality.
What is Static Contrast ratio ?
The static contrast ratio of a TV corresponds to its Black levels. A Display with low static contrast ratio (<1000:1) will not produce deep blacks. Apart from this, such TVs often suffer from backlight bleeds such as below:The image is an example of another display, it is not this one
Clearly this will impact your experience considerably, especially in a dark room.
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, 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 8000:1., well enough to display deep blacks and eye-catching visuals. The panel comes with local dimming which is a plus.
HDR is also supported on this TV in form of Dolby Vision, Dolby Vision IQ, HDR10 and HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma).
As for brightness, the peak luminance the TV can produce is 1600 nits. The backlight used on the panel is Direct LED (Full-Array Local Dimming). This amount of brightness is good enough even for a room with sun's rays in!
If you are planning to use your TV just 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, make sure to take a TV with the lowest input lag and response time.
The input lag on this TV is 15 ms and its minimum response time is N/A. It is acceptable for both casual and competitive/FPS games alike.
Understanding Input lag and response time
This lag is the amount of time at which your key-presses or mouse movements changes the content of the TV. For casual Non-FPS games, input lag doesn't matter much.
Although for better experience, look for a TV that comes with an input lag and response time of < 20ms.
