Today, we are taking a look at Linsar’s biggest TV offering for 2017, the Linsar 65-Inch UHD110 4K Smart TV. Linsar is a British company based in Poole and their main market is the UK market. Despite being a small company in a market dominated by Korea, China, and Japan, they are still successful for being in the business for 11 years.
Given that they are a small company, in terms of UHD Television, they offer very few selections compared to big brands. But to compensate for that, they claim to offer the best of everything in their products at an affordable price. Giving you the best value for your money.

Out of the box, the Lindsar 65UHD110 65-Inch UHD 4K Smart TV is definitely a classy looking TV. The bezels are thin which is a plus and it’s very minimalistic in design that will surely appeal to the minimalist. Size wise, it has a dimension of 84 cm x 146 cm x 8.2 cm. The TV doesn’t feature a thin body design so that’s one thing to note for those that have space measurement requirements.
The outer frame is metallic but the back is plastic. A closer look at the stand reveals its unique crescent style which we think will be divisive. The stand is not as stable as it looks because the TV is slightly wobbly but barely noticeable unless if you try to shake the TV.
The ports are all located at the left back part of the TV. It features 3 HDMI ports and 3 USB ports with one HDMI 2.0 and one USB3.0. It has a VESA mount of 40 cm by 40 cm.
The overall design is decent and simple which is in a way seducing because we prefer minimalistic designs than over exerted ones.
Picture quality wise, the Lindsar 65UHD110 is capable of performing excellent picture quality and colour reproduction. Thanks to its VA panel, it is capable of performing better colour reproduction with higher maximum brightness and better viewing angles. Furthermore, it has a higher level of contrast ratios than those UHD TV’s that features IPS panel. But of course, its colour, contrast, and the depths of black is nothing compared to OLED.
Furthermore, this TV doesn’t feature HDR which is now the standard for UHD TV as of 2017. So that’s another worth taking into consideration for its price.
Featuring a powerful amplifier and larger bass-tuned speakers with 20W power, its overall audio quality is excellent. However, it’s still not on par with soundbars.
In a small to a medium-sized room, the audio clarity and loudness are above satisfactory, however, in places where the area is bigger such as the living room or big bedrooms, you may find the lack of punch in its audio despite hitting the maximum volume. That’s worth noting too especially for those who love to watch movies on their TVs.
In terms of video gaming, this TV is probably not the best display to have. It features a native 50Hz refresh rate but it still supports 60Hz refresh rate for different resolution but not natively. That means you need to set it to the game mode which can compromise the picture quality and force it to run 60Hz refresh rate.
Furthermore, it has a very poor input lag. Though barely noticeable, it still did not satisfy our standard 50ms input lag that majority of UHD TV is capable of.
Linsar claims that the Linsar 65UHD110 offers the best possible features you can have at an affordable price. However, we think otherwise. Its picture quality, audio quality, and overall performance are above satisfactory there still a few issues that will definitely make you think twice before purchasing this TV.
For one, it doesn’t have or features any HDR support and that’s already a deal breaker for us. The year 2017 is the year for HDR UHD TVs and for its price not to have or feature HDR is something that will definitely turn us off.
Second, it has no local dimming which you can find on other models at the same price. Local dimming drastically affects the depth of black and white of the display. Affecting the overall picture quality performance.
Lastly, there are other better UHD TV models out there on the market. In our opinion, you’re better off buying the LG 65UJ630V at that price range. Read Our Review of LG 65UJ630V.
