ABOUT THIS TV

The 85U80G AU is a 85 inch 8K TV from Hisense. It was launched in 2021. It comes with a 10-bit IPS panel with Anti-glare/Matte finish. It can display a max resolution of 7680 x 4320 with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and pixel density of 104 ppi.

Picture Quality

After screen size and resolution, the next most important spec of a display is its Color Reproduction, which is defined by its color gamut specification.

This TV doesn't come with a color gamut specification, so we have to take a guess.

Considering the TV features a 85 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! It is capable of producing accurate colors by default.

What is Color gamut ?

Color gamut specification of a TV is a measure of the range of colors that the display can show.

In layman terms, this specification determines the ability of a TV to produce accurate colors. A TV with low color gamut coverage will miss out on some colors (such as deep red), thus producing a "washed out" picture.

Different manufacturers use different measurement standards to specify color gamut. Such as — sRGB (most popular), NTSC, DCI P3 to name a few.

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

Color Gamut Chart

Next in the list of important specifications is Static Contrast.

Why its important?

The static contrast ratio of a TV corresponds to its Black levels. A Display with low static contrast ratio (less than 1000:1) will not produce deep blacks. Moreover, such TVs may suffer from backlight bleeds such as below:

Obviously this will rob your experience considerably, especially in a dark room.

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, thus lesser detail overall.

This TV is rated with a static contrast ratio of 10000:1., well enough to achieve deep blacks and eye-catching visuals. The panel comes with local dimming backlight which is a plus.

Dolby Vision, HDR10, HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) and HDR10+ are also supported on this TV, so that's a plus.

As for brightness, the peak luminance the TV can achieve is 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 are planning to use your TV just for content consumption, you can ignore these specifications. But if you are also going to use the TV for playing games or use it as a PC monitor, you would want to take a TV with the lowest input lag and response time.

Unfortunately, we cannot find the input lag specification for this unit. Now, since this is not a cheap TV, we can expect an input lag of less than 20ms.

What is Input lag ?

This lag is the amount of time at which key-presses or mouse movements changes the content of the TV. 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 less than 20ms.

Ergonomics and Dimensions

Coming to ergonomics — VESA mount is supported on this TV with an interface size of 600 x 400 mm. There is no Swivel, Tilt or Pivot feature support in this TV.

The width of this TV is 75.18 inches while its height is 44.17 inches. It weighs 22.5 kilograms. So plan your space accordingly.
