Features to look out for in 65 inch 4K TVs

OLED and LED (& QLED)

When looking at TVs, you’ll come across OLED and LED TVs. These terms refer to the panel type and use completely different technology for light production, influencing the overall image output quality.

OLED TVs uses emissive screen technology, meaning the pixels in OLED generate their own light. Unlike LEDs, OLED TVs can therefore achieve true black which gives you a much higher contrast ratio. Therefore, as a general rule, OLED TVs have a much better image output than LEDs.

LED TVs use backlighting to create the final picture. Manufacturers have tried to replicate OLED technology that is commonly known as local dimming zones. Therefore, if you see this specification on a TV, remember that more local dimming zones is better for image output.

Samsung leads the way for relatively new QLED technology, as you’ll see with our choice of best value 65 inch 4K TV. It basically stands for quantum dot LED TV which provides a greater color spectrum and enhanced brightness thanks to an extra layer of quantum dots. The effect? A more immersive viewing experience in HDR that can thrive in quite bright, ambient light.

HDR (High Dynamic Range)

HDR and 4K are like a happily married couple, and go hand in hand when it comes to deliver an enhanced picture quality. In other words, HDR helps make the colours pop thanks to its expansion of contrast ratio.

From a gaming perspective, HDR makes games more vibrant and realistic, and shadow scenes will become much more atmospheric as darker colour details are retained.

You’ll find that Prime Video and Netflix are increasingly released in HDR as its become more popular over the years.

Sound bar

When buying a 65 inch 4K TV, you’ll want it to sound as good as it looks.

If you don’t already have a sound system that can connect to your new TV, we recommend one of two things:

  1. Consider investing in a sound bar, which you could probably snag for a reasonable price during Black Friday
  2. If you have limited space (which you definitely might if you’re getting a 65 inch TV), choose one that comes with a good quality sound bar, such as the LG G2 which still gives you a surprisingly immersive experience from such a thin TV.

We’ve put together an article here discussing the best sound bars for your TV here.

Response time

If you’re planning to game on your 65 inch 4K TV, watching sports, or both then factor in response time into your final decision.

Simply put, response time is the amount of time it takes for your pixels to change color, usually using the GTG (gray to gray) transition.

As a benchmark, 6ms or less is a good response time for a display, and you’ll find that OLED TVs easily exceed that mark making them a popular choice for gamers and those watching fast paced action.

Screen Technology: OLED
Resolution: 4K Ultra HD 3840 x 2160p
Refresh rate: 120Hz
HDMI standard: HDMI 2.1

Just a glance at the specs and you may be wondering what’s the major difference between the LG G2 and LG C2. With the same 120Hz gameplay, and VRR technology there’s not much between these two TVs.

They also both have ALLM (auto low latency mode) and come with a number of HDMI 2.1 inputs. You can have piece of mind that the LG C2 will support gaming features found on the latest PC graphics cards, the PS5 and Xbox series X.

We’ve chosen the LG C2 as best 65 inch 4K TV for gaming for its rapid response time, although even amongst our own tech team there is lively discussion about which is the better option.

Its main difference with the LG G2 is that it costs around $700 less, perhaps making it a better choice for those who don’t have infinitely deep pockets for state of the art TVs.

It’s currently reduced by $400 on Best Buy which only makes the deal sweeter.

Screen Technology: QD-OLED
Resolution: 4K Ultra HD 3840 x 2160p

This is a brilliantly valued TV which we can’t help but like A LOT. It’s most notable feature is that it uses new blue OLED panels with quantum dot color filters, boasting vibrant colours than traditional OLED displays, on similar par to the LG G2 OLED.

Thanks to Samsung’s focus on extra features for the TVs this year, you get quality gaming features including FreeSync and a an HDMI 2.1 bandwidth on all four ports

It’s budget title is because this TV is best suited for watching and gaming in a dark room without ambient lighting. This is because of its uncommon pixel layout, meaning you’ll see raised blacks in lighter conditions.

Overall though this is a fantastic choice of TV and stands out thanks to its QD-OLED technology.

Head to Samsung to get yourself $1100 off this TV whilst stocks last.

This is an excellent choice for those who do not have cinematic darkness available at a flick of a switch. Sony’s 2022 flagship introduces lots of smaller backlights which exerts greater control over the local dimming feature, basically making the screen display much brighter, thanks to mini LED technology.

Like other premium 4K TVs, the Sony X95K comes with all the smart features you might need plus support for HDR, HDR 10 and Dolby Vision standards plus a pretty decent speaker embedded in its design.

It’s also currently on sale with a $800 discount over on BestBuy making it a sound bargain to go for right now.

This is a great option for those keen on watching high speed sporting matches. Its rapid pixel response time keeps ghosting and blur to an absolutely minimum, turning your living room into a highly atmospheric entertainment zone.

If you are planning on gaming with this TV, you’ll be pleased to find Sony’s ‘Game’ modes do not oversaturate the content in both SDR and HDR, overall delivering a pretty dazzling gaming experience. You might also like to know that its currently retailed at $500 less than its usual asking price of $3,999.99.

TCL Class 4 Series

Best budget 65 inch 4K TV

TCL’s does very well as a budget TV and is currently available for $370 on Best Buy. In the department of upscaling lower resolution content, the Class 4 does well.
