The iFFALCON IFF55U62 is a 4K HDR TV that offers good performance at an affordable price. It has a high contrast ratio, which makes it ideal for watching movies in a dark room. It also has low display latency, which makes it suitable for gaming.
The IFF55U62 runs on Google TV software, which gives you access to a variety of streaming apps and live TV channels. It also has built-in voice control, so you can control the TV with your voice.
But is it really a good offer for people wanting a TV that can do it all?
The iFFALCON IFF55U62 TV has a sleek frameless design. This means that when you look at it, you mainly notice the wide bottom frame (which has the logo) and the very thin edges around the screen. These edges are usually just a few millimeters wide. The TV also has V-shaped plastic legs at the bottom.
These legs are far apart and need a wide piece of furniture to stand on. Alternatively, you can hang the TV on a wall using a bracket, although it will still stick out a bit. The TV’s case is around 8 cm thick, and some ports are facing the back, making it a bit challenging to place it close to the wall. Overall, the TV is well-built and meets expectations in terms of quality.
The iFFALCON 55U62 TV usually comes with a remote control that doesn’t have number buttons. It has a four-way navigation pad at the top and buttons for popular video services at the bottom. You can use voice commands with the TV using the remote’s built-in microphone, which works over Bluetooth. The other buttons on the remote use infrared communication.
The iFFALCON U62 TV uses a special type of screen called a VA panel with LED backlighting that affects how good the picture looks. Let’s break it down in simpler terms.
First off, the VA panel gives the TV a really high contrast ratio, which means when you’re watching stuff, the dark parts will look really dark and won’t appear gray. This is like having your own mini movie theater at home.
Now, if you’re watching a movie with a bunch of friends, most people will have a good view, but those sitting at the sides might not see the colors as well because this kind of panel doesn’t show colors perfectly when you’re not right in front of it.
The colors on this TV are pretty good, and they’re even improved with something called dynamic color enhancement. It’s like a trick that makes bright colors look even better by adjusting how they shine.
This TV can also play videos that have extra fancy colors (HDR content), but it’s not the best at it. The really bright parts in these videos might not stand out like they should, and it can’t show the widest range of colors. Some super fancy HDR formats won’t work on this TV.
For gaming, the iFFALCON U62 series is pretty good. When you set it to “Computer” mode for things like game consoles, it gets super fast and works like a computer monitor, which is great for games that need quick reactions.
The screen itself refreshes at 60 times per second, so things move smoothly, especially when you’re watching stuff in 4K resolution. So if you’ve got a cool new game console, it’ll work well with this TV. And don’t worry, the picture won’t look weird when things are moving around fast.
Smart TV functionality
The iFFALCON IFF55U62 TV runs on Google TV, which is basically a fancy version of Android for TVs. They tweaked the main screen a bit, so it’s not as crowded with stuff as regular Android. You’ll see a row of recommendations (or ads, you can turn them off) and that’s about it. You can also change how the main screen looks using the Google Home app on your phone.
With Google TV, you can use Google Duo to make video calls, send messages, and all that. Just remember, if you want to make video calls, you’ll need to get a separate webcam. When the TV isn’t doing much, you can set it to show your own photos or cool pictures from the internet. It makes the room look nice and lively.
They also made the settings a bit better. When you’re figuring things out, you can hover over stuff to see more options, which is handy. There’s a Home Control thing too, so you can boss around all the stuff connected to your home network. And yep, you can use your voice to control things using the remote or even talk to helpers like Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant. So, Google TV is a known system with lots of apps you can get from the Google Play Store, just like on your phone.
The size and price of the iFFALCON IFF55U62 eliminate the need for expensive internal speakers. Moreover, formats such as Dolby Atmos or DTS:X are not supported. But in many movies you find that the sound is quite good, even a little bit of bass is present. Of course, the sound capabilities of the TV are limited.
However, a two-channel audio system with two 9.5W speakers can make a lot of noise. At 90 percent volume, it can fill a very large room. Moreover, there are surprisingly few distortions. But again, you can’t make changes to the sound profile, and there are no built-in DSP-generated sound effects available. So for better immersion, you should consider a soundbar or a discrete audio system.
Ports and Connections
The iFFALCON U62 TV has a bunch of ports that match its simple features. First, you’ve got spots to plug in antennas for regular TV and satellite TV. And guess what? There are three HDMI 2.1 ports, and one of them is even fancier with eARC. There’s also a regular old USB port for your stuff.
You can plug in your headphones and there’s this small hole for old-style audio and video connections (you might need an adapter). If you’re into special paid channels, there’s a slot for those. The TV talks wirelessly using its built-in Wi-Fi (which can connect to both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz networks) and Bluetooth 5.0. There’s a hole that sends out sound digitally, and a place you can stick an internet cable if you want.
The iFFALCON U62 TV is great as an extra screen at home. It’s strong enough to play 4K videos smoothly and considering its price, this TV gives you a good picture without adding stuff you might not even need.
