The 77OLED807/12 is a 77 inch 4K TV from Philips, launched in the year 2022. It features a True 10-bit OLED-EX panel.
It can display a maximum resolution of 3840 x 2160 with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and pixel density of 57 ppi.
After screen size and resolution, the next important specification of a display is its Color Reproduction (defined by its color gamut specification).
This TV features 99% DCI P3 color gamut coverage. FYI, this is equivalent to 135.0% sRGB. The color quality on this TV should be Lifelike!
Understanding Color Gamut
Color gamut specification of a display indicates the range of colors that the TV can display.
A display with poor color reproduction will produce undersaturated/washed out colors that will spoil the immersion.
Different manufacturers use different measurement standards to define color gamut. Viz — sRGB (standard RGB), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 etc.
For example, the color gamut of this TV is specified using DCI P3.
But don't worry, here is a chart that you can use to choose a TV with good color accuracy.
Now, after color gamut, the static contrast specification of a TV has equally important role in picture quality.
What is Static Contrast ?
A TV with high enough static contrast ratio will produce deep blacks while a TV with low contrast ratio (<1000:1) will produce images that might look muddy as shown in below image.
As you see, this will rob your experience considerably.
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 comes with a static contrast ratio of Infinity:1. That's a plus for OLED TVs. So no need to worry about this at all.
HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma), HDR10, HDR10+, Dolby Vision, HDR and HDR10+ Adaptive are also supported on this TV.
Coming to brightness, it can go as bright as 250 nits.
If you are planning to use a TV other than using it as a TV — like as a PC monitor or for gaming purposes, you should get a TV that features the lowest input lag. For gaming, both input lag and response time affects the performance.
The input lag on the Philips 77OLED807/12 is 5 ms and its minimum response time is 1 ms. So its a go-to TV if you are interested in gaming.
What is Input Lag and Why it matters ?
This lag is the latency at which your key-presses or mouse movements changes the content of the screen. Though, this won't matter much if you aren't into competitive/FPS games like call of duty.
For best of both worlds, look for a TV that comes with an input lag and response time of < 20ms.
Ergonomics and Dimensions
Speaking of ergonomics — a VESA mount with interface size of 400 x 300 mm is provided for wall-mounting. Swivel, Tilt or Pivot features are not supported on this unit.
Vertically, the TV measures 77 inches and horizontally 68.21 inches. In total, it weighs approximately 22.5 KGs. So plan your space accordingly.
