[Bestbuy618 Home Appliance Channel] LCD TVs have been around for more than 40 years; the volume is shrinking, the color is improving, but the contrast ratio has not been a major breakthrough; there is no way to display pure black. OLED TVs, on the other hand, move with millions of contrast to mock LCD TVs. However, the birth of the stacked screen TV has finally made up for the shortcomings of the LCD TV.Hisense U9E As the world’s first stacked screen TV – Hisense U9E has received a lot of attention, some say it subverts the traditional LCD, others say it is enough to challenge the OLED, so, the truth is how? Hisense U9E TV has reached what level? The machine we got is the 65 version, model HZ65U9E, priced at 17,999 Hisense plans to release 55 and 75-inch stacked screen TVs in 2020.
Stacked screen: the most powerful LCD TV counterattack Stacked screen TV is sandwiched between the LCD TV color panel and backlight, adding a layer of light control panel. Hisense U9E employs a program that superimposes a 2K (1920*1080) grayscale LCD panel on a color 4K (3840*2160) LCD panel that serves as a light control panel.
As a result, the Hisense U9E backlight partition number increased from 1000 to 2 million, indicating the realization of true pixel-level light control.
According to the company, the Hisense U9E improves the contrast ratio of standard LCD TVs by more than ten times, achieving an ultra-high contrast ratio of 150,000:1. Although we are still some distance from the million contrast ratio of self-illumination per pixel of OLED TV, we can safely say that the actual viewing is far from the difference on paper. Seeing is believing: this is currently the strongest LCD TV light control The first step in installing the machine is, of course, to see the light control performance.
The previous generation of Hisense U9 achieved 1000 backlight partition, light control performance is considered one of the LCD TV camp, but Hisense U9E has a subversive upgrade.No light leakage at the edges at all How big is this improvement? As a frequent contact with LCD and OLED TV editors, when the lights off to see the moment of the boot screen will be mistaken, this is clearly an OLED TV ah!
In fact, LCD TVs and OLED TVs are very easy to distinguish; in an all-black environment, light up the machine to display black pictures; if you can still see the light, that is, the traces of backlight, then the LCD TV is unmistakably; if it is completely black, no light through, naturally is OLED. Hisense U9E is blurring the line between the two, because you can hardly tell at a glance that this is an LCD TV, the trace of After all, it is an LCD TV, so after pulling up the exposure value, you can still see the traces of the backlight, but in 1 and 3 part, because only black is displayed, even if pulling up the exposure, you can not find the traces of the backlight!
Slight halo However, because the resolution of the light control panel is only 2K (1920*1080), which means that one grayscale pixel corresponds to four color pixels, a certain amount of halo is unavoidable when displaying black and white images, but with the current performance, this flaw can be completely ignored. Will these halos still be a problem if this light control panel is upgraded to 4K in the future? Dark details and color: the continuation of ULED strengths OLED TV, in addition to “burning screen” the hidden danger, is the most criticized is the dark details of poor quality. Because of the inheritance of LCD TV technology, Hisense stacked screen TV in the dark details of performance, naturally OLED cannot be compared. For example, the above screen shot from a demo film, we tested the OLED TV, they can indeed show the black in the picture very deep, but in fact, there is white dust on the glass, which many OLED TVs do not show.
Hisense U9E can easily show these details hidden in the dark, the small white dots on the glass are fully revealed,
Hisense U9E screen shot In addition to the dark details, the bright details of Hisense U9E are also excellent. For example, in the screen shot above, the grid texture on the window is still very clear in a backlit environment. Compare this to another high-end LCD TV we tested below, where the bright details are almost completely swallowed up.A high-end LCD TV brand For the color part, we used Mr. Hisense U9E performs as described in the chart, presenting highly saturated red, green, and yellow colors that are more vivid than any other part of the picture, according to Qian Yuankai’s latest test chart.
The right part, as described, is a dark gray background with a white tablecloth, which is distinct from the black background in the left part, and Hisense U9E makes the correct distinction.
Stacked screen answer questions: brightness and viewing angle Hisense U9E, as the first to eat crabs, cannot help but worry about the stacked screen TV will not have some problems, for example, the increase of light control layer, the brightness will not be affected? Furthermore, due to the existence of a certain angle between the two layers of LCD panels, bringing parallax effect, will not cause poor viewing angles, as well as artifacts, moiré, and other problems? (For more information, see the table below.) The viewing angle comes next.
Billy Lynn’s face changes little (with slight brightness changes) from four different angles, and the colors of his clothes and hat barely change. The viewable angle is unimportant. On the contrary, the Hisense U9E’s performance is considered top-tier among the LCD TVs we’ve tested, and it lives up to its flagship moniker.
The Hisense U9E comes standard with a subwoofer in addition to the main body of the TV; after all, it is the flagship machine, so the material must be the most solid. The following are the accessories: Unboxing the subwoofer: This subwoofer, loaded with a 17KG counterweight, is probably the most “heavy” woofer in television history. The benefit of doing this is to avoid the vibration that affects the sound when the subwoofer is working at high power; additionally, when the subwoofer is sitting behind, there will be certain requirements for vertical space, such as our TV cabinet, which has been attached to the edge.
The main ports are on the left side of the TV, with three HDMI ports and one USB 3.0 port, as well as a USB port on the front that can be hidden. There are very few TVs with interfaces on the front, which has the advantage of not requiring you to plug in blindly when hanging on the wall. The front out of the sound design.
Officially, this color is called Mingshi Gold. “HIDG DESIGN”, Hisense Industrial Design Center. Stacked screen TV has an extra screen than ordinary LCD TV has an extra screen, initially worried about the thickness of the problem, using vernier calipers to measure, 12.47mm, belongs to the normal thickness of the flagship LCD TV.
Bluetooth and voice are both supported.
As the world’s first stacked screen TV, Hisense U9E LCD TV for the first time achieves “pixel-level light control” in the contrast has the strength to challenge the OLED TV, “stacked screen” technology can be called the most disruptive advancement in recent years of LCD TV. As a stacked screen TV explorer, Hisense U9E is not perfect, such as peak brightness there is room for improvement, body thickness can be further optimized, which is also considered to the future of the stacked screen TV left room for upgrading. Overall, the “stacked screen” with a new way of thinking, completed the “dynamic multi-partition backlight” technology upgrade, Hisense U9E also n
