The Hisense A65K is a budget-friendly LCD TV that offers fair overall picture quality and is suitable for watching cartoons and animation with good performance. However, if you're into gaming, its performance is not ideal. Watching sports and movies in dark rooms is serviceable but not outstanding. It does better in bright rooms but not exceptionally, and it may struggle with heavy reflections. The A65K has decent upscaling for lower-resolution content and good color capabilities straight out of the box, but it could falter in displaying a wide spectrum of colors. With a 60Hz refresh rate and mediocre motion processing, fast-moving scenes might not be as smooth. If sound is a priority, you might need an external sound system, as it doesn't have great speakers. Conversely, it's good for use as a monitor with 4 HDMI ports supporting 4k at 60Hz at 4:4:4 chroma. With newer HDR formats like HDR10+, Dolby Vision, and HLG supported, you get improved contrast and color in supported content, enhancing the viewing experience. Give Feedback

Ratings by Category

Cartoons & Animaton:
4.2
The Hisense A65K is good for watching cartoons and animation as it delivers colors well right out of the box, ensuring vivid and accurate hues without the need for extensive adjustments. Additionally, its color gamut is good, which implies it can display a wide range of colors, making animated content vibrant and engaging.
News, Talk & Reality TV:
3.8
The Hisense A65K is fair for watching news and other TV programs because it has good upscaling for standard definition content, ensuring that lower resolution material appears clearer. However, the basic local dimming feature may result in less optimal contrast during certain scenes, impacting the overall picture quality.
Overall Picture:
3.8
The Hisense A65K has fair picture quality because it offers decent contrast and black uniformity which are crucial for deep blacks in dark scenes but is held back by its less effective local dimming and limited HDR brightness that affect its ability to display the finest details in high dynamic range content. The colors out of the box, color gamut, and color volume are satisfactory, enhancing the overall color reproduction, but the TV's mediocre viewing angles and gray uniformity can reduce the consistency of the picture when viewed from the side or during uniform color scenes like sports.
Bright Room:
3.5
PerfectRec’s bright room score is a proprietary score of a television's performance in a bright environment, taking into account the following factors: screen brightness, reflections, and color volume. A higher score indicates better TV performance in bright conditions, minimizing glare and producing a more pleasant viewing experience. Brightness is crucial in how well the image displays in direct sunlight, and low reflections reduce glare. Color volume contributes to color vibrancy and depth, which are vital in a bright environment.
Sports:
3.1
The Hisense A65K is considered fair for watching sports because its motion processing doesn't handle fast-moving scenes very well, which can lead to blur during intense sports action. Additionally, it has a fair reflection handling capability, making it less ideal for well-lit rooms where glare could be an issue during gameplay.
Movies & TV shows:
3.0
The Hisense A65K has a poor contrast ratio which means it can't produce deep blacks, essential for good movie viewing in a dark room, and its inability to display a uniform black screen further degrades the cinematic experience due to uneven blacks and possible cloudy areas on the screen.
Gaming:
3.0
PerfectRec’s gaming score measures a TV's performance when it comes to playing video games. It is based on several factors that can significantly impact the quality of the gaming experience, including screen response time, input lag, and refresh rate. Screen response time is a critical factor that determines how quickly the TV can transition from one color to the next, while input lag measures the delay between the gaming console output and the TV display. Refresh rate refers to the number of times per second that the TV displays a new frame, which can impact the smoothness of the gaming experience. The gaming score also takes into account two other features: local dimming in gaming mode, which can enhance contrast and picture quality, and black frame insertion, which can reduce screen brightness and create a smoother gaming experience.

Stratos Kampourogiannis | September 2023
"The A65K proved to be a rather capable TV that works great within its extreme limitations that its price dictates. It has great contrast, very low input lag and good color coverage. Add Google TV and a low price in the mix and you have an excellent low budget offering."
