ABOUT THIS TV

Hisense 65U80G AU 400x400 Image Hisense 65U80G AU

The 65U80G AU is a 65 inch 8K TV from Hisense, launched in the year 2021. It comes with a 10-bit IPS panel with Anti-glare/Matte finish.

The max. resolution it can achieve is 7680 x 4320 @ 120 Hz with a pixel density of 136 ppi.

Picture Quality

After screen size and resolution, the next important spec of a display that defines picture quality is its Color Gamut.

Hisense did not provide a color gamut specification for this TV. So we have to take a guess.

Considering 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! It is capable of producing accurate colors.

Understanding Color Gamut

Color gamut spec of a TV indicates the range of colors that it can show.

Meaning, this specification tells the ability of a display 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, DCI P3 to name a few. It is upto the manufacturer which one they choose.

But you don't need to worry about that, here is a chart that you can use to choose a TV with good color accuracy.

Color Gamut Chart

After color gamut, next in the list of important specifications is Static Contrast.

Understanding the static contrast ratio of a TV

There are 2 types of contrast specifications for a TV. Static and Dynamic. We are interested in static contrast ratio. Dynamic doesn't matter much.

Static contrast defines the intensity of black levels. That is, a TV with static contrast ratio less than 1000:1 will produce black images something like this:

Example of a disply with low contrast ratio

Note that, such TVs are also prone backlight bleeds that will impact your experience — as shown below.

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, 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 10000:1., enough to achieve deep blacks and eye-catching visuals. For the record, it also comes with local dimming backlight which is a plus.

Dolby Vision, HDR10, HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) and HDR10+ are also supported on this TV.

Coming to brightness, it is can achieve a peak brightness of 1000 nits. The backlight of this TV is powered by Direct LED (Full-Array Local Dimming Pro) technology. This amount of brightness is good enough even for a well-lit room!

Gaming Performance

If you aren't into gaming, you can safely 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, Hisense did not specify the input lag on this unit. Now, since this is not a cheap TV from Hisense, input lag on this TV could be 20ms or below.

What is Input lag ?

This lag is the latency at which inputs changes the content of the screen. For casual Non-FPS games, input lag doesn't matter much.

Although for better experience, look for a TV that features an input lag and response time of < 20ms.

Ergonomics and Dimensions

Now, coming to ergonomics — VESA mount is supported on this TV with an interface size of 400 x 400 mm. Swivel, Tilt or Pivot features are not supported on this unit.

The vertical and horizontal measurements of this TV are 57.75 inches and 34.37 inches respectively. In total, it weighs around 17.5 kgs.

Hardware and Audio

The Hisense 65U80G AU is powered by Quad Core CPU. However, we could'nt find any specification on the total available RAM on the TV's official specsheet.
