Launched in the year 2021, the 75U8G AU is a 75" 4K TV from Hisense. 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 59 ppi.
After screen size and resolution, the next most important specification of a display is its Color Reproduction Accuracy (defined by its color gamut specification).
Hisense has not provided a color gamut rating for this TV. So we have to take a guess.
As this TV features a 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 accuracy on this TV should be Lifelike! It will produce color accurate images.
What Color Gamut means ?
Color gamut specification of a TV is the measurement of 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 color gamut coverage will miss out on some colors (such as deep red), the result would be a "washed out" picture quality.
It is specified in different units - sRGB(most popular), NTSC, DCI P3 to name a few.
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.
Next in the list that will impact your experience is Static Contrast.
What is Static Contrast ratio ?
A TV with low static contrast ratio will not produce deep blacks and can bleed backlight as shown below:The 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. Ofcourse, More the better.
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.
If given a choice, I will 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., enough to achieve deep blacks and eye-catching visuals. For the record, it also comes with local dimming feature which is a plus.
Dolby Vision, HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) and HDR10+ are also supported on this TV, so that's a plus.
As for brightness, it is can produce a peak brightness of 250 nits. The backlight of this TV is powered by Direct LED (Full-Array Local Dimming) technology.
If you are not planning to game on this TV, you can ignore these specs. But if you are also planning to use the TV for playing games or use it as a PC monitor, you would want to get a TV with the lowest input lag and response time.
Sadly, there is no specification for input lag on this TV. 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 your device inputs changes the content of the screen. 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 comes with an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.
Dimensions and Ergonomics
The width of this TV is 66.47 inches while its height is 39.27 inches. It weighs approximately 22.5 kilograms.
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 600 x 400 mm. The unit doesn't come with either Swivel, Tilt or Pivot support.
Hardware and Audio
The internals of this TV is powered by a Quad Core (2x ARM Cortex-A73 + 2x ARM Cortex-A52) CPU along with a (ARM Mali-G51) GPU.. However, Hisense didn't provide any info on the total RAM on this TV.
To power its UI, the TV runs VIDAA U5.0 Operating System.
For display connectivity, there are four HDMI 2.0 (CEC) ports and one AV Composite In (Video + L/R) port on this TV.
For connecting USB devices, it includes 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.

In terms of power usage, on average, it consumes about 157.2 Watts. On standby, it uses 0.5 Watts.
