ABOUT THIS TV

Sharp 65EQ4EA 400x400 Image Sharp 65EQ4EA

The 65EQ4EA is a 65 inch 4K TV from Sharp. It was launched in 2022. It features a 10-bit VA panel. The max. resolution it can achieve is 3840 x 2160 @ 60 Hz with a pixel density of 68 ppi.

Picture Quality

After screen size and resolution, the next most important feature to look for in a display is its Color Reproduction Accuracy (defined by its color gamut specification).

Speaking of which, this TV is rated with a 94% DCI P3 color gamut coverage. Incase you're wondering, this is equivalent to 128.18% sRGB. The color accuracy on this TV should be Lifelike!

Understanding Color Gamut

Color gamut specification of a TV is the measurement of the range of colors that it can display.

A display with poor color reproduction will produce undersaturated/washed out colors that will spoil your immersive experience.

It is specified in different units - sRGB(most popular), NTSC, DCI P3 etc.

For example, the color gamut of this TV is specified using DCI P3.

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

Color Gamut Chart

Now, after color gamut, you should look at the static contrast specification as it influences the picture quality substantially.

Why its important?

Static contrast ratio of a TV corresponds to its Black levels. A TV with low static contrast ratio (less than 1000:1) will not produce deep blacks. Also, such displays often suffer from backlight bleeds such as this:

This will impact your viewing experience, especially in a dark room.

Also note, 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 show both dark gray and black as black, 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.

Sharp did not specify static contrast specification for this TV. Here we have to take a guess. Most always come with superior contrast ratios. As you know, this TV features the same, so you can expect the static contrast ratio to be atleast 3000:1 or above.

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

Coming to brightness, the peak brightness the Sharp 65EQ4EA can produce is 500 nits. The panel of this TV is powered by Direct LED backlight.

Gaming Performance

If you aren't into gaming, you can ignore these specs. But if you are also going 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, 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.

Understanding Input lag and response time

This lag is the amount of time at which your key-presses or mouse movements changes the content of your TV. 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.

Dimensions and Ergonomics

Vertically, the TV measures 65 inches and horizontally 56.97 inches.

Speaking of thickness, it is 2.4 inches thick. In total, it weighs around 19.5 Kgs. So plan your space accordingly.

Coming to ergonomics — VESA mount is supported on this TV with an interface size of 400 x 200 mm. Swivel, Tilt or Pivot features are not supported on this unit.

Hardware and Audio

To power its UI, the TV runs Android 11 Operating System.

For display connectivity, Sharp has provided four HDMI 2.0 ports and one AV Composite In 3.5 mm jack port on this TV.

To connect USB devices, you will have two USB 2.0 ports. Other connectivity ports include — 1x Satellite In (F-type female), 1x Antenna (RF) (female), 1x SD Memory Card Slot and 1x Ethernet RJ45.

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

Coming to audio, Sharp has provided 2 x 15W speakers on the TV.

In terms of power consumption, this TV consumes 246 watts on average and 0.5 watts on standby.

It supports a power outlet of 100 V - 120 V/50 Hz - 60 Hz.
