tech4xmas Review: PRISM+ Q65 Quantum Edition Pro Android TV

Tuesday, December 7th, 2021

tech4xmas 2021: The Q Series Quantum Edition (QE) Pro series are the flagship Android TVs by Singapore brand PRISM+. I tried the Q65-QE Pro and found that it indeed offered excellent value-for-money. Quality that’s almost as good as the flagship of established brands – but at a fraction of the price.

The PRISM+ Q65-QE Pro standing pretty in front of my Samsung 55-inch TV. The image quality isn’t far behind but the price is like half. Super value-for-money.

Appearance-wise, the Q65-QE Pro looks really smart with almost no bezel on three edges – left, right and top sides.

Along the bottom of the TV is a 1-cm bezel as well as the brand logo and LED status light on a thin extension below the centre of that bezel.

Excluding the stand, the panel measures 1447 x 827 x 85 mm with a weight of 19.9kg

Including the stand which is very stable, the TV measures 1447 x 904 x 290 mm, with a weight of 20.15kg.

The TV can also be mounted on the wall with a mounting measuring 400 x 200mm.

Picture quality-wise, Dolby Vision’s HDR technology provides good natural colours, with better tone definition, contrast management and greater detail.

The IPS panel accords a wide viewing angle (178 degrees), while the Quantum Color backlit technology of the series further enhances overall brightness and contrast, as well as greater colour volume and accuracy than similarly priced TVs.

Compared to its predecessors (Q-series), the Q65-QE definitely offers a wider colour gamut and higher dynamic range.

In fact, I find the image quality quite almost as good as my own Samsung 55” TV, which is priced roughly twice the Q65-QE Pro.

Audio wise, I find the 2 x 10W output adequate – I don’t think an external soundbar is necessary, except perhaps to boost the bass.

The Xiaomi 11T & Xiaomi 11T Pro are the company’s first smartphones to do away with the Mi prefix and branding.

Both phones continue the product line’s focus on creators and content creation.

There are two configurations available for the Xiaomi 11T, both with 8GB RAM:

  • 8GB + 256GB (S$649)
  • 8GB + 128GB (S$629)

With only S$20 separating the two configurations, it’s a no-brainer to go for the version with 256GB storage.
