Cost-effective! A Gaming Monitor With 97% Adobe Rgb – Hisense Gaming Monitor G5f Review


[Bestbuy618DIY Hardware Channel] Gaming and gaming are popular forms of entertainment nowadays, and if you want to get an outstanding gaming experience, you need a gaming monitor with outstanding performance. With the turn of the major manufacturers in recent years, gaming monitor performance is becoming stronger and stronger, and the gaming experience for players is becoming better and better. But, while most gaming monitors focus on game performance (refresh rate, response time, etc.), color accuracy is lacking, making it impossible to improve the player’s gaming experience.

So, when TV manufacturers have always focused on color into the field of gaming monitors, what changes will be brought? Today I will take a look at the Hisense Hard Plus gaming monitor 24G5F (hereinafter referred to as G5F).

The front side features our standard narrow bezel design, the left, right, and upper bezels appear to be invisible when the screen is completely black, and the lower bezel has Hisense’s logo in the center. The square base is very friendly to FPS players, with enough space when placing the keyboard diagonally. The stand also includes a hole for cable management, allowing users to better align their devices.

The bracket supports 90° rotation, upward tilt angle of about 22 °, can be tilted downward about 6 °, basically can meet all the needs. If you feel that the tilt angle is not enough, you can also replace the bracket, G5F bracket interface using a universal VESA interface, very easy to replace. As for the interfaces, 2 HDMI 2.0 interfaces, 1 DP1.2 interface, and 1 audio interface are enough to meet the daily needs of gamers. To evaluate the G5F, we used the Spyder 4 Elite Color Checker.

It is worth noting that the G5F was tested with its default settings throughout, and no tuning was performed.

The G5F has 100 percent coverage of the sRGB color gamut and 97 percent coverage of the AdobeRGB color gamut in the color gamut coverage test, which is a reasonable result because Hisense uses quantum dot technology in this monitor, and it is only natural that the color gamut can cover 97 percent of AdobeRGB. However, when we compare it to the price, it looks amazing, knowing that the price point of monitors on the market that can support more than 95 percent of AdobeRGB is basically around 3,000 yuan, while the G5F is only an entry-level monitor, and the main focus is on gaming rather than design, so it can be said to be a “suit thug.” It is recommended that users make specific color temperature settings upon arrival and keep the brightness between 50% and 90% for a better experience. Contrast ratio, under preset conditions, can basically maintain a high value under different brightness levels.

The built-in OSD menu allows players to customize the warm and cool tones of the monitor screen.

The color temperature at the top right of the monitor has a certain gap with the standard color temperature value, the gap value is 3.6. The average E value of the 48 colors tested by the monitor is 1.37, with a minimum value of 0.31 and a maximum value of 3.89. The technical standards for E are as follows: 1.6-3.2, from a certain distance outside the viewing area, you can’t see the difference in color, which is usually considered the same color; 3.2-6.5, the difference in color is visible, but the color gives the impression of being basically the same; 6.5-13, the color difference is visible, but it can be considered the same hue;

The average E of Hisense G5F is 1.37, indicating that the panel quality of G5F is still very high, and it can be used completely as a professional design monitor. In fact, during the time I experienced Hisense G5F, I also used it as a design monitor, particularly when using PS and PR, and it brought me a working experience far beyond ordinary monitors, excellent color accuracy, uniform color, and also brought a lot of c Technically, the Hisense G5F is a multi-purpose monitor; the OSD menu content is related to the driver board on the one hand, but it can also reflect the manufacturer’s intention in designing the product; the number of functions in the OSD menu and the effect of each function can also provide a certain reference for us to judge the merits of a monitor.

The monitor employs the traditional physical button method, which has simple button logic and allows users to quickly master the menus. Let’s take a look at the monitor’s OSD menu options next. Pressing the MENU key brings up the main menu, which has a strong sci-fi UI design.

The first column of the menu is for image management, where you can adjust contrast, brightness, and color temperature, and the second column is for menu customization, where you can change the language, position, display time, and transparency.

In the third column, users can choose screen mode, signal source, screen notes, dynamic contrast ratio, low blue light, response time, dark field mode, volume, FreeSync, and eye protection mode. In the system bar, we can reset the system and re-set the monitor. Personally, I believe the G5F has fewer game features, and it would be better if game assistance functions such as aiming were included.

As a game enthusiast, I also used it to play CS GO, a game that tests the refresh rate and response time of a screen.

Because of the Hisense Gaming Monitor G5F’s high 144Hz refresh rate and ultra-fast 1ms response time, it performs very smoothly in the game, whether it’s following a gun or quickly claiming an enemy, and I can even easily capture the trajectory of the enemy’s appearing movement. (Camera screen shot) In the game “Apex,” I was able to feel the silky smooth graphics, no lag in the slide shovel, in the rush to the safe zone

The color performance in the game “Destiny 2,” which I frequently play, is significantly better than the picture on my laptop, and the original shader, which did not feel good, has become more pleasing to the eye. In Assassin’s Creed Origins, known as a “scenery punching simulator,” the graphics presented by the Hisense G5F came to life. The Hisense G5F gave me an unprecedented sense of immersion from Alexandria to Memphis, from the Nile Delta to the Great Sand Sea, from the Giza Plateau to the Fayum Oasis. During this time of experiencing Hisense gaming monitor 24G5F, I really felt Hisense’s full sincerity for gaming monitor.

With its unpretentious appearance, humanized OSD menu, and excellent panel quality, it can be said that it can meet the basic needs of most gamers and can even be used as a design monitor without issue. If you want to buy a monitor that can meet both gaming and office design needs for under $1000, the Hisense G5F is the right choice. If you think of the G5F as a gaming monitor, it still has more room for gaming optimization.

But, if you consider it an entry-level multipurpose monitor, it’s well worth the money. The Hisense G5F monitor demonstrates that Hisense has high ambitions for the display industry, and that it does not limit its products to a specific area, but rather tries to meet as many users’ diverse needs as possible.
