The Amazon Omni Series LCD TV is a reasonably priced model with fair overall picture quality. It is suitable for casual movie or series watching and news viewing but performs poorly when used for gaming, sports content or in dark rooms. For bright room use, its performance is fair, though reflectivity can be an issue. It has good SDR brightness but lacks local dimming, leading to poor HDR brightness and subpar dark scene performance. Color accuracy and volume are not standout features, and while it has a very good input lag, motion processing capabilities are not impressive. In terms of screen technology, it features an LED VA panel with a standard 60Hz refresh rate and four HDMI ports. It is worth noting that it does not support advanced HDR formats like HDR10+ or Dolby Vision, though it does support HLG. This TV might not be the best choice as a computer monitor or for enthusiasts seeking high-fidelity audio and visual experiences, but it does include Dolby Atmos compatibility for improved sound.

Ratings by Category

Bright Room:
3.3
The Amazon Omni Series television is challenged by bright rooms; it has good SDR brightness to help mitigate some ambient light, yet its poor reflection handling can significantly impair viewing in well-lit environments. Although it offers a decent color volume, the overall experience could be compromised by glare during daytime viewing.
Overall Picture:
3.2
The Amazon Omni Series (LCD) displays fair picture quality due to its good contrast and fair performance in color volume and out-of-the-box colors, which ensures images are portrayed with decent depth and vibrancy. However, the absence of local dimming and the poor HDR brightness limit the TV's ability to display deep blacks and vibrant HDR content, somewhat undermining the overall picture experience, especially in darker scenes.
Sports:
3.0
The Amazon Omni Series (LCD) is not ideal for watching sports predominantly because it has a poor viewing angle, making it harder to see the screen clearly from the side, and a poor score in handling reflections, which can be distracting when watching fast-moving games in bright environments.
News, Talk & Reality TV:
3.0
PerfectRec’s news, talk, & other TV score prioritizes upscaling, brightness, contrast, out of the box color accuracy, and screen uniformity. This is because almost all news and talk shows are created in Standard Dynamic Range (SDR) with lower resolutions, such as 720P and 1080P. The purpose of this prioritization is to ensure that lower resolution content looks good on a 4K display and to help you identify which TV will perform best when watching live TV via Cable, Satellite, or Antenna.
Cartoons & Animaton:
3.0
The Amazon Omni Series (LCD) is not ideal for watching cartoons and animation because it has poor colors out of the box and a limited color gamut, which means it may not display the full spectrum of vivid and varied colors typically found in animated content. Additionally, its color volume is only fair, indicating that it might struggle to maintain color accuracy at different levels of brightness, which can further detract from the viewing experience for animation, where bright and consistent colors are crucial.

Nick Pino | July 2022
"If you want a competent budget screen with some handy features, the Amazon Omni TV delivers an experience that punches well above its price tag. You’ll also get the benefit of Fire TV’s new UI right out of the box. It’s clean and simple to understand, plus it puts content first. In the picture-quality department, the Amazon Omni is a surprising star among some of its dimmer, less colorful rivals."
