ABOUT THIS TV

Hisense 65U8G AU 400x400 Image Hisense 65U8G AU

The 65U8G AU is a 65 inch 4K TV from Hisense, launched in the year 2021. It features a 10-bit IPS panel with Anti-glare/Matte finish. The max. resolution it can display is 3840 x 2160 with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a pixel density of 68 ppi.

Picture Quality

After screen size and resolution, the next important specification of a display is its Color Reproduction Accuracy (defined by its color gamut specification).

Hisense has not provided a color gamut specification for this TV. But don't worry, we have other means to guess that. As this 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. The color accuracy on this TV will be Lifelike! Meaning it will produce accurate colors.

Understanding Color Gamut

Color gamut spec of a display is a measure of the range of colors that the TV can produce.

A display with poor color accuracy will produce washed out colors that will spoil the immersion.

Different manufacturers use different units to specify color gamut. Viz — sRGB (standard RGB), NTSC, DCI P3 to name a few.

But you don't need to worry about that, below is a chart that will help you choosing a TV with good color accuracy.

Color Gamut Chart

Now, after color gamut, the static contrast ratio of a TV has equally important role in picture quality.

What is Static Contrast ratio ?

A TV with low static contrast ratio will not produce deep enough blacks and possibly can bleed backlight as shown in the below image:

Backlight bleed exampleThe image is an example of another display, it is not this one

The above TV's static contrast is 800:1. So make sure you get a TV with a static contrast of >= 1000:1. More the better.

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, so 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.

This TV comes with a static contrast ratio of 8000:1., enough to display deep blacks. For the record, it also comes with local dimming feature which is a plus.

HDR is also supported on this TV in form of Dolby Vision, HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) and HDR10+.

Coming to brightness, it can go as bright as 250 nits. The backlight of this TV is powered by Direct LED (Full-Array Local Dimming) technology.

Gaming Performance

Now if you are going to use a TV other than using it as a TV — say as a PC monitor or for gaming purposes, you would want to get a TV that features the lowest input lag. For gaming, both the input lag and response time impacts the performance.

Sadly, Hisense did not specify the input lag on this unit. But as this is not a cheap TV from Hisense, we can expect an input lag of less than 20ms.

Understanding Input lag and response time

This lag is the latency at which device inputs changes the content of your TV. Though, this won't matter much if you aren't into competitive/FPS games like call of duty.

But ideally, get a TV that features an input lag and response time of < 20ms.

Dimensions and Ergonomics

The width of this TV is 57.17 inches while its height is 36.5 inches.

Coming to thickness, it is just 3.5 inches thick. It weighs approximately 23.9 Kgs, another 1.2 kgs including stand.

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 400 mm. The unit doesn't come with either Swivel, Tilt or Pivot support.

Hardware and Audio

The TV comes with a 4-Core (2x ARM Cortex-A73 + 2x ARM Cortex-A52) CPU along with a (ARM Mali-G51) GPU.. There is no data about the total available RAM on the TV's official specsheet.

The UI on this TV is powered by VIDAA U5.0 Operating System.

For display connectivity, Hisense has provided four HDMI 2.0 (CEC) ports and one AV Composite In (Video + L/R) port on this TV.

For connecting USB devices, you have — 1x USB 2.0 and 1x USB 3.0. Other connectivity ports include — 1x Cable/Antenna In (F-type female) and 1x Ethernet RJ45.

For connecting to this TV wirelessly, the manufacturer has provided Wi-Fi (5Ghz + 2.5Ghz), Wifi-Direct and Bluetooth.

Now, speaking of speakers, it is packaged with 2 x 10W built-in speakers.

As for power consumption, on average, it uses about 114.24 watts. On standby, it takes 0.5 watts.

For powering this unit, you'll require an 100 V - 120 V/50 Hz - 60 Hz outlet.
