The 65P735 is a 65 inch 4K TV from TCL, launched in the year 2022. It features a 10-bit VA panel.
The max. resolution it can display is 3840 x 2160 with a refresh rate of 60 Hz and a pixel density of 68 ppi.
After screen size and resolution, the next important specification of a display that defines picture quality is Color Gamut.
The TCL 65P735 features 75% DCI P3 color gamut coverage. This is equivalent to 102.27% sRGB coverage. Meaning, the color reproduction on this TV will be excellent! So your viewing experience would be immersive as this TV is capable of producing near accurate colors by default.
What is Color gamut ?
Color gamut spec of a display indicates the range of colors that it can display.
A TV with poor color reproduction will produce washed out colors that will not be pretty to look at.
Different manufacturers use different measurement standards to specify color gamut. Such as — sRGB (most popular), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 etc.
For example, the color gamut of this TV is specified in terms of DCI P3.
But you don't need to worry about that, below is a chart that will help you choosing a TV with good color accuracy.
Other than color accuracy, you should look at the static contrast specification as it influences the picture quality the same way.
Understanding the static contrast specification
A TV with low static contrast ratio will not produce deep blacks and possibly can bleed backlight as 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 is better.
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 produce less shades of colors, thus lesser detail overall.
If given a choice, I will 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 5000 : 1., enough to produce deep blacks. For the record, it also comes with local dimming technology which is a plus.
HDR10, HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) and Dolby Vision are also supported on this TV, so that's a plus.
As for brightness, the peak luminance the TV can achieve is 300 nits, which is powered by Direct LED backlight.
If you aren't interested in gaming, you can safely ignore these specifications. But if you are also planning to use the TV for playing games or use it as a PC monitor, you should take a TV that features the lowest input lag and response time.
The input lag on the TCL 65P735 is 15 ms and its minimum response time is 8 ms. It is good enough for both casual and competitive/FPS games.
Understanding Input lag and response time
This lag is the amount of time at which your inputs changes the content of your display. For casual Non-FPS games, input lag doesn't matter much.
For best of both worlds, look for a TV that features an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.
