Exterior design of the Hisense 65A66G

Hisense 65A66G design

We have an attractive design despite being a mid-range television

The aesthetics offered by this model stands out for several reasons, although to make the most of its appearance it is important to provide it with a correct placement, so that the points to be highlighted will be more visible . Of course, we must consider that we are facing a large 65-inch television.

Therefore, it turns out to be an ideal television for larger rooms or rooms. The most striking thing is on its front thanks to the inclusion of thin bezels that generate elegance , especially because of its glass panel that also provides a greater presence.

The useful space on the screen reaches 94.78%, which seems adequate to us to view content without any problem . The rear seeks to provide a different look than we are used to. The main idea of ​​this is to get an overall slim look.

It really is something that is not achieved due to the panel that this model has installed, therefore, we continue to see a bulky space, although it is reduced a bit compared to other televisions. Another detail to consider is that the construction materials are somewhat weak .

connectivity

This version includes three HDMI 2.0 that allow us to connect external devices such as laptops, computers, consoles and players to transmit their signal to the television. Likewise, we find two USB , although we must emphasize that one is version 3.0 that gives us advantages.

There will be other interesting physical connections such as the Ethernet port that is capable of receiving a speed of 100 Mbps . We can also make use of a satellite input , an optical audio output and an antenna . Likewise, it offers compatibility with DVB-T2/C/S2 tuners .

Now let’s talk about the wireless issue that also provides good options to get a lot of use out of the TV. Among the most striking we have a Wi-Fi Direct connection to connect to the internet from a distance. On the other hand, its Bluetooth 5.0 works quite well.

Image quality and functions in general

The Hisense 65A66G presents an image suitable for its capabilities, since we have a 4K resolution that tries to provide more precise details. Obviously the content will look better if it comes from a native source, although lower resolutions are improved thanks to its scaling.

However, we must bear in mind that it includes a Direct LED backlight that usually shows difficulties in terms of lighting, especially if we are in very dark or bright environments. Therefore, we think it is a good idea to take care of the placement a little.

Something interesting is that it is accompanied by an IPS panel that gives us some interesting advantages, for example, it allows us to display a better viewing angle compared to other panels. Another benefit is that energy consumption is low, so we save a few euros.

However, there will also be major drawbacks, as contrast and brightness are low, meaning blacks and whites will be shallow . Likewise, we noticed light leaks from the sides in dark scenes and environments, lowering the image quality a bit.

We find it striking that this model includes enhancement technologies that focus their work on essential parameters such as color, contrast, brightness and saturation, thus the quality increases considerably. In addition, it offers compatibility with Dolby Vision , HDR10 , HLG and HDR10+ .

Sound

It seems to us that the audio is another weak point of this model , and that is because we only have two speakers with a total power of 20W , which is normal within the mid-range, however, we are talking about a large television. which requires higher quality.

Luckily we have two high level technologies such as Dolby Atmos and DTS Virtual:X that try to provide a more immersive and precise environment, however, it is still a slightly low sound for more demanding content, so a sound bar would be great.

Analysis of the software / Smart TV and more notable features

Like other models of the same brand, the Hisense 65A66G includes its own operating system, which has both positive and negative things. Among the attractions we find an important catalog of applications that offers us popular options that have come out lately.

Likewise, it allows us to make use of the Alexa and Google Assistant assistants for better control of certain functions. The remarkable thing is that we can control these actions using our voice. There will be other cool features like game mode that improves latency a bit.

Obviously, the experience will not be the best with the new generation consoles, especially since it does not reach a frequency of 120 Hz. We must also consider that, unlike other systems, we are left to owe in certain sections, but future updates are promising.

A model that can compete with this television is the Toshiba 65UA4C63DG that offers us a 4K resolution together with other features and the best thing is that it maintains a low cost despite the possibilities it offers us, therefore, it is an option that we looks interesting.
