The 65U7H is a 65 inch 4K TV from Hisense, launched in the year 2022. It comes with a 10-bit IPS panel.
The max. resolution it can achieve is 3840 x 2160 with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a pixel density of 68 ppi.
After screen size and resolution, the next most important feature to look for in a display is its Color Reproduction (defined by its color gamut specification).
Hisense did not provide a color gamut rating for this TV. So we have to take a guess.
As this TV features a 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 accuracy on this TV will be Lifelike! It is capable of producing color accurate images AS IT IS intended.
What Color Gamut means ?
Color gamut spec of a TV is a measure of the range of colors that the TV can produce.
Put Simply, it determines the ability of a TV to produce accurate colors. A display with low 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, DCI P3 Adobe RGB, rec.2020. It is upto the manufacturer which one they choose.
But don't worry, here 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.
Why its important?
The static contrast ratio of a TV corresponds to its Black levels. A TV with low static contrast ratio (less than 1000:1) will not produce deep blacks. Moreover, such TVs are likely to suffer from backlight bleeds such as this:The image is an example of another display, it is not this one
This will rob your experience considerably, especially in a dark room.
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 in a sense.
This TV comes with a static contrast ratio of 8000:1., well enough to produce 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 Hisense 65U7H can achieve is 600 nits. The backlight used on the panel is Direct LED (Full-Array Local Dimming). This amount of brightness is good enough even for a well-lit room!
If you are going to use a TV other than using it as a TV — like as a PC monitor or Gaming, you should take a TV that features the lowest input lag. For gaming, both input lag and response time affects the performance.
Unfortunately, we cannot find the input lag specification for this unit. Now, as this is not a cheap TV, input lag on this TV could be 20ms or below.
What is Input Lag and Why it matters ?
This lag is the amount of time at which your inputs changes the content of your display. For casual Non-FPS games, input lag doesn't matter much.
Although for better experience, get a TV that comes with 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 200 mm. The unit doesn't come with either Swivel, Tilt or Pivot support.
The vertical and horizontal measurements of this TV are 57.13 inches and 35 inches respectively. It is 2.99 inches thick.
In total this TV weighs around 19.9 Kgs including its stand. Without stand, it weighs 19.0 KGs. So plan your space accordingly.
