VU Pixelight Review

Design and Look

VU Pixelight

The VU Pixelight is extremely well built, giving it a very premium look. The bezels surrounding the display are very thin and impressive nearly it is not noticeable. The build quality is excellent, and you shouldn’t have any issues with the TV.

Thickness

VU Pixelight

The VU Pixelight is very thin. It’s thicker at the bottom where the electronics are housed, but even then it’s still thin and won’t stick out much if you wall-mount it.

Back

VU Pixelight

The back of the VU Pixelight is plain. Back in the combination of metal and plastic. Some of the inputs are facing sideways and some are facing outwards, which can get in the way if you wall-mount the TV and very well cable management.

Stand

VU Pixelight

The stand design of the VU Pixelight is quite good-looking and not so big but supports the TV extremely well.

Borders

VU Pixelight

The VU Pixelight borders are thin and aren’t distracting when watching TV.

Picture Levels

VU Pixelight TV supports 4K and HDR10. Like most IPS TVs, the VU Pixelight can’t display true blacks, and this is most noticeable in a dark room.

Like most IPS TVs, this display has a good viewing angle. The image remains accurate to a wide-angle, then starts to lose accuracy, and the image gets washed out gradually.

But this TV has mediocre black uniformity. Whereas it has excellent reflection handling, but the semi-gloss coating isn’t able to fully diffuse reflections across the screen.

VU Pixelight has a great wide color gamut but due to the limited contrast ratio, this TV can’t display dark colors very well.

There is some minor temporary image retention. This isn’t uncommon with IPS TVs and does vary between units.

IPS has some image retention but they do not have any permanent Burn-in risk. This TV has Good peak brightness and decent gray uniformity.

Response

This TV has a good response time. There is some very minor overshoot in some transitions, but this shouldn’t be very noticeable in most content. This TV has a decent motion interpolation feature, and even busy scenes are very smooth.

The VU Pixelight can display, without judder, 24p movies no matter from which sources they are playing. The TV is decent at showing low frame rate content smoothly (like movies and 30fps video games), but the TV’s fast pixel response time can make motion look a little stuttery, especially in wide panning scenes.

Unfortunately, it can’t flicker at 60 Hz, so 60 Hz content will have visible duplications in its motion, but some may find it preferable to no flicker.

Native Refresh Rate: 60 Hz                                             Variable Refresh Rate: No

Sound Quality

VU Pixelight does get pretty loud, but they could produce some pumping and compression artifacts near their maximum volume.

The frequency response is quite flat and well-balanced. However, at maximum volume, VU Pixelight TV produces a lot of distortion, but this kind of distortion won’t be very audible with real-life content (movies, music…).

VU Pixelight

Great low input lag, especially when playing 4k video. The 1080p input lag is higher than for 4k but is still good enough for most gaming.

All common resolutions are supported. 4k @ 60 Hz @ 4:4:4 or 4:2:2 is only possible on HDMI inputs 2 and 3. however, many TVs from other brands have lower input lag.

Smart Features

Smart OS: Linux  

VU Pixelight has opted for a Linux-based operating system instead of an Android-based OS. The interface isn’t very smooth to operate via remote control and often lags in registering input from the remote.

VU Pixelight comes with Netflix, Prime Video, YouTube, Zee5, ErosNow, Hungama Play, YuppTV, Dailymotion, AccuWeather, TED, Toon Goggles, and Plex apps.

The TV also takes some time in opening apps… press the Netflix button on the Vu Pixelight’s remote. But one thing that is very impressive is the feature of Remote now which lets you use your smartphone as a remote control for the television.

The performance is also quite inconsistent; sometimes the TV will open menus quickly and have smooth animations, but other times menus will lag for a second or two before opening, and their animations will be choppy.

The home menu of VU Pixelight is especially slow to open, which is unfortunate because of how often it needs to be used.

The apps run fairly smoothly and with minimal lag, unlike the frequent mini-hangs of the main interface.

Conclusion

Mixed Usage

Great TV for a range of usages. High contrast ratio and local dimming result in great dark scene performance for watching movies in a dark room.

Input lag is low, especially at 4k, and motion handling is excellent which is great for gaming. The TV can produce bright, saturated highlights for HDR.

Movies

VU Pixelight is a decent TV for watching movies in a dark room. It can play 24p movies judder-free, which is great, and it has a great motion interpolation feature.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t look very good in a dark room, though, as, like most IPS TVs, it can’t display deep, uniform blacks in a dark room, and the local dimming feature doesn’t help much.

TV Shows

The VU Pixelight is a great TV for watching TV shows during the day. It has wide viewing angles, excellent reflection handling, and good peak brightness, so there shouldn’t be any issues using it in a bright room. It also has a huge selection of streaming apps, great for cable-cutters.

Sports

This is a great TV for watching sports. It has wide viewing angles, great for watching the big game with a group of friends and has excellent reflection handling.

The VU Pixelight also has a good response time, so fast-moving objects look clear, with little blur trail. This TV also has good peak brightness, but might not be bright enough for all rooms.

Video Games

This is a good TV for playing video games. It has outstanding low input lag, resulting in a very responsive gaming experience, and it has a great response time.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t support any advanced gaming features like FreeSync, and some motion artifacts can be seen, due to the backlight flicker.

HDR Movies

The VU Pixelight is a good TV for watching movies in HDR in a dark room. It has an excellent contrast ratio, resulting in deep blacks, but it has only decent black uniformity and lacks a local dimming feature.

It can display a wide color gamut, which is important for the latest HDR movies, but it can’t get very bright, so small, bright highlights don’t stand out.

PC Monitor

This is a great TV for use as a PC monitor. It has outstanding low latency and it supports most of the common resolutions and can display chroma 4:4:4 properly in all of them, which is important for clear text.
