The 75U80G is a 75 inch 8K TV from Hisense, launched in the year 2021. It features a 10-bit IPS panel with Anti-glare/Matte finish.
The maximum resolution it can achieve is 7680 x 4320 @ 120 Hz with a pixel density of 118 ppi.
Now, 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. But don't worry, we have other means to guess that. As this TV features a big 75 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! Meaning it will produce accurate colors.
Understanding the Color Gamut Specification
Color gamut specification of a TV is a measure of the range of colors that it can produce.
A display with poor color accuracy will produce undersaturated/washed out colors that will not be pretty to look at.
It is specified in different units - sRGB,sRGB (standard RGB), NTSC, DCI P3 Adobe RGB, rec.2020.
But don't worry, here is a chart that will help you choosing a TV with good color accuracy.
After color gamut, the static contrast ratio of a TV has equally important role in picture quality.
Understanding the static contrast ratio of a TV
There are two types of contrast specifications for a TV. Static and Dynamic. We are interested in static contrast ratio. Dynamic doesn't matter much.
Static contrast tells the intensity of black levels. That is, a TV with SC ratio less than 1000:1 may produce black images something like this:
Apart from this, such TVs are likely to suffer from backlight bleeds that will impact your experience — as shown below.The image is an example of another display, it is not this one
Note that, 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 produce less shades of colors, so 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 is rated with a static contrast ratio of 10000:1., good enough to achieve deep blacks and eye-catching visuals. The panel comes with local dimming backlight which is a plus.
HDR is also supported on this TV in form of Dolby Vision, HDR10, HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) and HDR10+.
Coming to brightness, it can go as bright as 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 room with sun's rays in!
Now if you are planning to use the TV other than watching videos — say as a PC monitor or for gaming purposes, make sure to get a TV with lowest input lag. For gaming, both the input lag and response time impacts the performance.
Unfortunately, Hisense did not specify the input lag on 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 ?
This lag is the latency at which your 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, look for a TV that features an input lag and response time of < 20ms.
Ergonomics and Dimensions
Speaking of ergonomics — a VESA mount with interface size of 600 x 400 mm is provided for wall-mounting. The unit doesn't come with Swivel, Tilt or Pivot support.
The TV measures 75 inches vertically and 65.98 inches horizontally. In terms of thickness, it is just 2.99 inches thick.
Overall the TV weighs approximately 38.2 kgs (including stand). Without stand, it weighs 37.0 kgs.
