RCA 65″ LED 4K Ultra HD 2160p 120hz Review

RCA-65_4K-Does RCA want to impress the industry and gain some visibility for 2016?  If it’s the case or not, they did it with aggressive price tags on their TVs.  Does the price tag worth the buy?

RCA released a 65″ LED 4K Ultra HD TV.  We got one and here is the review.

  • Backlight Type: LED
  • Resolution: 3480 x 2160
  • Refresh Rate: 120Hz
  • Aspect Ratio: 16:9
  • HDMI: 4 rear (HDMI 2.0 Support)
  • Mount Pattern: VESA Standard
  • Model number : RLED6515-UHD

Here above are the most important points that you need to know.  But what you want to know is if this is any good for the price.  You usually get what you pay for. But in this case, it isn’t true.  RCA released an amazing TV!!!

We are lucky enough to have the best TV of 2011 (LG 55LW6500) and of all TV we compared since, it’s been hard to find one that we can say it could replace it.

In 2016, most of us have already a soundbar or a receiver for the sound which is a good thing because the speakers on this TV are poor quality.  The refresh rate is only 120hz, not as good as 240hz, but way better than 60hz.  It’s also not a smart TV, but with a PS4, Xbox One, Apple TV, a computer all hook up behind a TV, who needs a smart TV?  I personally never use Smart TV features.  Please note that a Roku HDMI stick comes in the box in the Samsclub version, which transform this TV into a Smart TV.

The TV is perfect for whoever wants to enjoy 4K movies and play video games.  4k content is so great on it, that when you go back to a 1080p TV, even the best ones, you’ll focus on the pixels.  This is how good this TV is.

If you put 1080p content, you will be amazed with the upscaling to 4K.  The upscaling is better than you can imagine.  1080p content looks sharper and especially while playing video games on PS4 and on the Xbox one.  It has 2x HDMI 2.0 ports and 2x HDMI 1.4 which is more than enough.

I don’t really believe in “picture calibration” with cheap TVs.  Some will argue, but a good LED panel, out of the box, doesn’t require adjustment and the RCA doesn’t need adjustment and has a very decent color palette. Does it beat high-end TVs;  probably not.  Does it beat high-end 2011-12 TVs?  The answer is yes. Plus, I haven’t seen any bandings around the TV like you can see with some 65 inch TVs.

At under $900, it’s a steal.

              this review is worthless without a model number for the tv being reviewed.
