At the very onset of the New Year, Vu has launched its Vu 75 inches 4K QLED TV. Before this, in the affordable category, only Xiaomi was there with its 75 inches QLED TV.
In this article, apart from knowing about the in-depth performance of this Vu TV, we will find out whether this Vu TV performs better than the Mi 75 inches QLED TV?
And, if yes, in what ways? All these questions will be answered here, in this article, today!
Hi, friends; welcome back to my blog.
Vu 75 Inches 4K QLED TV
Friends, this is the biggest unboxing on our channel to date. Though we have unboxed 65 inches TVs many a time,
this is the first time that we are unboxing a 75 inches TV on our blog.
The purchase link for this TV is in the description box below this article. The TV is pretty huge, and it wasn’t easy to handle it.
This TV refused to fit on our 5-ft 2-inches’ table, because of which we had to keep it, here, where we usually do a side by side comparison of two TVs.
For this TV, at least a 5’6″ table is required. It would have been more convenient if the company, instead of giving me corner feet, I would have provided a stand with this Gigantic TV.
This would have easily accommodated it on a medium-sized table, and it would not have consumed this much space.
Inside the Box, apart from the TV, there is a power cord, a wall mount, a remote, two triple-A batteries, an instruction manual, a warranty card, two pieces of the tabletop stand, and some screws to fix this stand.
These two pieces of the stand are quite heavy as they have been constructed out of metal.
The built quality of the remote is pretty good, and in looks, it is quite different from the other remotes we have seen earlier.

The bezels are ultra-slim and have been constructed out of metal.

The weight of this TV with its stand is 26.5 kg.
Liberal use of metal makes this TV pretty heavy and catapults it into a premium category.
On the rear, the TV gets a plastic construction, but the quality of the plastic is high-grade.
Ports are located on the left side and underneath the TV.
Overall, it looks like this TV is elegant and is sturdily built; its metallic feet grant this gigantic TV good stability.
On this Vu QLED TV, there are 4 HDMI ports, 2 USB ports, an optical digital port, an AV input port, a headphone jack, and an Ethernet port.
This TV comes with dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth v5.0. It has HDMI 2.1 with HDCP version 2.3.
Apart from HDMI eARC, it also comes with HDMI CEC. Through Chromecast, you can connect your Android and iOS devices to this TV, apart from connecting Windows and Mac laptops wirelessly to it.
Coming to its specifications; This is a feature-loaded TV that comes with rich specifications.
It is a QLED 4k TV, where the light of its LEDs has been passed through a Quantum Dot film that enhances the brightness and colors.
This TV supports all HDR standards, including HDR10, Dolby Vision, and HLG. Along with a 120 Hz smooth motion rate, it comes with MEMC Technology,
10-bit color depth Perception Technology and Intelligent Picture Booster. The TV’s screen is anti-glare, and reflection is minimal.
The most sought-after feature for gamers, HDMI 2.1, is present on this TV. Apart from the Game Mode, it has an Auto Low Latency Mode and the Motion Judder Cancellation feature.
The Low Blue Light feature is there on this TV; even after viewing this TV for long hours, no eye fatigue is felt.
The audio front has a 40 Watts speaker system that includes two big speakers and two tweeters.
Fulfilling the highest audio standards, this TV supports Dolby Atmos, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby Digital, and MS12.
This is an Android TV that comes with the latest Android 11 OS.
It comes fitted with a QuadCore processor that has a clocking speed of 1.5 GHz And for graphics, it has a Mali G52 processor.
This TV has 2GB RAM and 16GB onboard storage. So all these were company mentioned specifications, now, let’s talk about the real performance of this TV.
As it comes with a VA panel, the contrast ratio of this TV is pretty good. The TV displays deep Blacks, and the uniformity of Blacks on the screen is also good.
The good thing about this TV is that wherever there is no detail behind the Blacks, they appear fairly deep, but, whenever there is a dark scene with much detail, the Blacks don’t tend to get that dark as to hide the facts behind them.
The color reproduction of this TV is vivid. However, the colors are not overly saturated.
The 4k articles show a 3D depth, making the images appear realistic. As the brightness of this TV is decent, the detail clarity of dark scenes is pretty good.
I am showing you the dark scenes of the 4k web series Jack Ryan, you can see how beautifully they are getting displayed without losing details.
On the Hisense Full-Array QLED TV, the detail clarity of dark scenes was very good, but surprisingly, despite not being a FALD TV, this Vu displays the same detail clarity as seen on the Hisense Full-Array TV.
In this Lost In Space Scene, all the details in this dark scene are displayed as beautifully as that seen on that Hisense Full-Array ULED TV.
In this Dunkirk movie scene, even the minutest details on the road and under the pipe are visible. Dolby Vision and HDR10 articles look stunningly good on this TV.
Not only 4k HDR, but you can also see that even normal FHD content plays beautifully on this TV. I prefer to show you mostly dark scenes as the real performance can be convicted through the dark backgrounds playing on it.
Bright scenes look good on almost all TVs. Whether it is Netflix, Prime Article, Hotstar, or YouTube, articles related to all these applications play attractively on this TV.
This TV does exclusive OTT content nicely. Now coming to its set-top box performance, if you are buying a QLED TV for watching programs on an SD box or dish, leave aside this TV; you should purchase none of the QLED TVs All these TVs are optimized for watching high-quality content.
This is why low-quality content does not look good on QLED TVs. The HD channels on this TV will not disappoint you at all, however, SD channels look pretty soft.
Though SD channels, too, are viewable, they are not enjoyable. Even if you go for a Samsung QLED TV, you will not find the quality of its SD channels good.
Now let’s talk about the motion blur on this TV! Even when the motion settings are switched off, blur is hardly visible during the fast action scenes. However, in some scenes, motion blur can be seen.
This is because almost all contents are made in 24 fps. After all, they fail to keep pace with the TV’s frame rate.
If you want, you can switch on the MJC & ALLM motion settings, but the smoothness that it creates induces a Soap Opera Effect, which might go unnoticed by many but could be irritating for some.
However, in the Game and Cricket Modes, the motion on this TV gets negligible, Coming to its viewing angles; Despite having a VA panel, this TV displays good viewing angles.
Still, a color shift is visible when viewed from an extreme angle. Coming to its audio, the sound of this TV is pretty loud.
You even get to hear some good bass on it. The audio clarity of this TV is also good, but, like other TVs, no Dolby Atmos effect can be heard on it.
Though the sound of this TV is more than enough for even a big-sized room, for an effective Dolby Atmos experience,
you need to connect this TV through HDMI eARC to a good Dolby Atmos-enabled home theatre system.
The casting of Apple devices was buttery smooth. You can wirelessly cast your phone’s content on its big screen.
Gaming Performance When this TV senses gaming signals from a gaming console, the Game Mode automatically gets switched on, and low input lag starts getting supported.
During 4k HDR gaming, the Motion Judder Control (MJC) sets the lowest possible input lag for this TV.
During FHD gaming, you get to enjoy the 60 Hz refresh rate, but through PS5, you can play 4k HDR games @60 Hz only.
If you wish to do 4k gaming @120 Hz, you need to go for the higher-range models of Sony, which are much costlier than this TV.
At this price point, this TV is the best option for gaming. HDR gaming looks pretty good on this TV, and the graphics are also very appealing.
While gaming, no lag or frame drop issue was observed. The absence of a Variable Refresh Rate on this TV could be disappointing for hardcore gamers, but in this budget, none of the TVs gives you this feature.
Now let’s jump to the most important question, which many amongst you have been asking me again and again.
They wanted to know whether they should go with the 75 inches Mi QLED TV or this Vu QLED TV.
So friends, right now, Mi 75 inches QLED TV is the best TV launched by Xiaomi to date, through which it is endeavoring to enter the premium TV segment.
No doubt, high-quality content like 4k and Blue Ray articles play beautifully on the Mi QLED TV, low-quality content looks bad on it.
Even the HD set-top box performance is not that appealing. In FHD articles, many times, pixelation is pretty visible,
and sometimes even banding can be seen on a dark background.
Despite being a Full-Array local dimming TV, details are not displayed with that clarity, which can be seen on the Hisense 65 inches QLED and this Vu TV.
Local dimming does not seem to play any major role on the Mi QLED TV. Mi TV comes with more brightness, still, in Dolby Vision and HDR10 scenes, The highlights’ details are not as clear as on this TV.
Sometimes the Mi TV gets very much bright in the bright portions of scenes, which tends to hide details behind the brightness.
And the same happens during the dark scenes when the Blacks of Mi TV get very much overpowering, veiling the details behind the darkness.
On the other hand, this Vu TV displays better detail clarity even in the brightest and darkest portions of the scenes.
On Mi QLED TV, sometimes the colors get overly saturated and flesh tones, too, give a yellowish tint, whereas colors look more natural on this Vu TV, despite being vivid.
On the budget TVs exhibiting local dimming, many a time,
during the fast-paced scenes, when bright and dark backgrounds tend to change very rapidly,
these TVs fail to dim or switch on/off the LEDs simultaneously.
Due to this, an instability in brightness is marked, which often mars the same ambiance of the scene.
Though this thing was noticeable on the Hisense Full-Array QLED TV, it was negligible compared to this Mi QLED TV.
And then, buying a TV just for watching high-resolution content would not be a prudent decision.
For people who do not watch Blue Ray DVDs and have also not taken a 4k subscription of applications,
Mi TV would not be a good option.
And then, most of the content is still available only in low resolution,
so watching it in low quality or purchasing a separate TV for it would sound illogical.
A good TV is that, apart from high-resolution content, you can also watch low-resolution articles comfortably.
However, the Mi TV’s Patchwall UI is an added attraction, imparting an easy browsing experience.
But then, Xiaomi’s aftersales services is allocated to a third party, which is not that good,
whereas Vu provides direct services to its customers and is an Indian company overall.
So friends, only this much for today, meet you in my next article, till then take care and stay safe.
