The Amazon Fire TV Omni QLED Series is a budget 4k TV in Amazon's 2022 lineup. It sits above the Amazon Fire TV Omni Series and the Amazon Fire TV 4-Series, both of which were released in 2021 but are still part of Amazon's lineup in 2022. There are a few differences with the new model, as it adds a quantum dot color filter, allowing for richer, more vibrant colors. It also adds a few gaming features, including variable refresh rate support to reduce tearing, but it's still limited to a 60Hz refresh rate and doesn't support HDMI 2.1 bandwidth. It runs Amazon's Fire TV smart interface, which is fast and easy to use and has a great selection of streaming apps available to download.

Our Verdict

7.8 Mixed Usage

The Amazon Fire TV Omni QLED Series is a good TV overall. It's best for watching movies or shows in a dark room, thanks to its superb contrast ratio and excellent black uniformity. It's a good gaming TV with low input lag and a good selection of gaming features. It's also good for watching shows during the day thanks to its decent peak brightness and reflection handling, meaning it can handle moderate amounts of glare. Sadly, it's limited for watching sports, as it has a poor viewing angle, and it's unsuitable for use as a desktop monitor, as it doesn't display chroma 4:4:4 properly, and text looks blurry.

Pros
  • Superb contrast ratio results in deep blacks in a dark room.
  • Great selection of streaming apps.
  • Decent reflection handling.
Cons
  • Image degrades rapidly when viewed from the side.
  • 480p and 720p content isn't upscaled properly.
8.5 Movies

The Amazon Fire TV Omni QLED Series is an excellent TV for watching movies in a dark room. It has a superb contrast ratio and excellent black uniformity, so dark scenes are displayed well, with very little blooming. It also has a decent full array local dimming feature to improve dark scene performance. It has very little stutter thanks to its relatively slow response time, and it can remove judder from any source, ensuring a smooth movie-watching experience.

Pros
  • Superb contrast ratio results in deep blacks in a dark room.
  • Great selection of streaming apps.
  • Removes judder from any source.
Cons
  • 480p and 720p content isn't upscaled properly.
7.5 TV Shows

The Amazon Fire TV Omni QLED Series is a good TV for watching shows during the day. It has decent peak brightness and reflection handling, meaning it can handle a moderate amount of glare. It also has a good built-in smart interface with voice control and a great selection of apps, so you can quickly find your favorite content. Sadly, it has a poor viewing angle, so it's not ideal for a wide seating arrangement, as colors look dull and washed out as you move to the side.

Pros
  • Great selection of streaming apps.
  • Decent reflection handling.
Cons
  • Image degrades rapidly when viewed from the side.
  • 480p and 720p content isn't upscaled properly.
7.0 Sports

The Amazon Fire TV Omni QLED Series is just decent for watching sports in a bright room. It has decent reflection handling and decent peak brightness, meaning it can handle moderate amounts of glare well. It has a satisfactory response time, but you'll see some motion blur behind fast-moving objects. Sadly, it has a very narrow viewing angle, so it's not a good choice for a wide seating arrangement, as anyone sitting to the side will see a degraded image.

Pros
  • Great selection of streaming apps.
  • Decent reflection handling.
Cons
  • Image degrades rapidly when viewed from the side.
  • Relatively slow response time.
  • 480p and 720p content isn't upscaled properly.
  • Some distracting uniformity issues.
8.0 Video Games

The Amazon Fire TV Omni QLED Series is a good TV for gaming. It has superb low input lag, ensuring a very responsive gaming experience. It also supports variable refresh rate technology, which helps reduce screen tearing in games. Sadly, it's limited to a 60Hz refresh rate and can't take full advantage of the new-gen consoles. There's also noticeable blur behind fast-moving objects, which can be distracting in fast-paced action scenes.

Pros
  • Superb contrast ratio results in deep blacks in a dark room.
  • Superb low input lag for a responsive gaming experience.
  • Good selection of gaming features.
Cons
  • Relatively slow response time.
  • Limited 60Hz refresh rate.
8.2 HDR Movies

The Amazon Fire TV Omni QLED Series is great for watching HDR movies in a dark room. It has a superb contrast ratio, excellent black uniformity, and a decent full array local dimming feature, so there's very little blooming around bright areas of the screen. It has an amazing color gamut in HDR, with nearly full coverage of the DCI-P3 color space and great color volume. It can also remove judder from any source, ensuring a smooth movie-watching experience, and thanks to its relatively slow response time, there's very little stutter. Unfortunately, it can't get very bright in HDR, so bright highlights don't stand out very well.

Pros
  • Superb contrast ratio results in deep blacks in a dark room.
  • Great selection of streaming apps.
  • Removes judder from any source.
  • Amazing wide color gamut and great color volume.
Cons
  • Mediocre peak brightness in HDR.
8.2 HDR Gaming

The Amazon Fire TV Omni QLED Series delivers a very good HDR gaming experience. It delivers a good gaming experience thanks to its low input lag and variable refresh rate support, but it's limited by its 60Hz refresh rate and lack of HDMI 2.1 bandwidth. HDR displays well thanks to its superb contrast ratio and decent full array local dimming feature. It has an amazing color gamut and great color volume, so colors are bright and vibrant. Sadly, it's a bit limited by its low peak brightness in HDR, so bright highlights don't stand out as well as they should.

Pros
  • Superb contrast ratio results in deep blacks in a dark room.
  • Superb low input lag for a responsive gaming experience.
  • Amazing wide color gamut and great color volume.
  • Good selection of gaming features.
Cons
  • Relatively slow response time.
  • Mediocre peak brightness in HDR.
  • Limited 60Hz refresh rate.
6.8 PC Monitor

The Amazon Fire TV Omni QLED Series is unsuitable for use as a desktop monitor, but it's okay for PC gaming. It doesn't display chroma 4:4:4 properly, so text on the desktop is blurry. It also has a poor viewing angle, so the sides of the screen appear dull and washed out compared to the center if you're sitting up close. Sadly, there are also some uniformity issues, and there's a bit of distracting dirty screen effect that's especially noticeable when displaying anything with large areas of uniform color, like a web browser or spreadsheet.

Pros
  • Decent reflection handling.
  • Superb low input lag for a responsive gaming experience.
Cons
  • Image degrades rapidly when viewed from the side.
  • Relatively slow response time.
  • Chroma 4:4:4 isn't displayed properly, so text from a PC looks blurry.

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

We tested the 65-inch Amazon Fire TV Omni QLED Series, and our results are also valid for the 75-inch model. The only difference between sizes is the number of dimming zones, but it's not a noticeable difference. There are no other variants of this TV, but you can buy it either with the standard 1-year warranty or with a 4-year protection plan warranty offered by Amazon and SquareTrade.

Size SKU number (U.S.) Local Dimming Zones
65" QL65F601C 80
75" QL75F601C 96

You can see the label for our unit here.

Compared To Other TVs

The Amazon Fire TV Omni QLED Series is a good TV but is more expensive than competing models from other budget brands. Some cheaper models deliver a much better experience, so it's not worth buying. If you want to save a bit of money, get the Hisense U7H or the TCL 5 Series/S546 2021 QLED instead, as they perform about the same. If you're willing to spend a bit more, the Hisense U8H vastly outperforms it and is a much better buy.

See our recommendations for the best budget TVs, the best smart TVs, and the best small TVs.

TCL 6 Series/R646 2021 QLED
55" 65" 75"

The TCL 6 Series/R646 2021 QLED is much better than the Amazon Fire TV Omni QLED Series. The TCL gets significantly brighter to better fight flare in a bright living room, and it allows for bright highlights in HDR to stand out better. The TCL is also much better for gaming thanks to its 120Hz refresh rate and faster response time, resulting in smoother motion with less blur behind fast-moving objects.

Hisense U7H
55" 65" 75" 85"

The Hisense U7H is a bit better than the Amazon Fire TV Omni QLED Series. The Hisense is a lot brighter, allowing it to better overcome glare in a bright room, and bright highlights in HDR stand out better. The Hisense also delivers a better gaming experience thanks to its faster 120Hz refresh rate, and it can take better advantage of the new-gen consoles thanks to its HDMI 2.1 bandwidth ports.

Hisense U6H
50" 55" 65" 75"

The Hisense U6H is slightly better than the Amazon Fire TV Omni QLED Series, but the differences are extremely minor. The Hisense is a bit more versatile, as it displays chroma 4:4:4 properly, which is essential for clear text from a PC. The Hisense also upscales lower-resolution content better.

TCL 5 Series/S546 2021 QLED
50" 55" 65" 75"

The Amazon Fire TV Omni QLED Series is slightly better than the TCL 5 Series/S546 2021 QLED. The Amazon has much better accuracy before calibration, so colors look more natural, and shades of gray are displayed properly. The Amazon TV also has a better local dimming feature.

Amazon Fire TV Omni Series
43" 50" 55" 65" 75"

The Amazon Fire TV Omni QLED Series is much better than the Amazon Fire TV Omni Series. The QLED model has a full array local dimming feature, resulting in deeper blacks and better overall dark scene performance. The QLED also has a much wider color gamut, so HDR content looks more vivid and realistic.

TCL 5 Series/S555 2022 QLED
50" 55" 65" 75"

The TCL 5 Series/S555 2022 QLED is a bit better than the Amazon Fire TV Omni QLED Series. The TCL is a lot brighter, so it can better overcome glare in a bright room, and HDR content is a lot brighter. The TCL is also much better for use as a PC monitor, as chroma 4:4:4 is displayed properly, resulting in much better text clarity.

The Amazon Fire TV Omni QLED Series has a slightly premium, but dated design. The front bezels have a metallic coating that looks good, but there's a bit of distracting dead space between the side and top bezels and the first pixels.

This TV isn't part of our accelerated longevity test. The Amazon Fire TV Omni Series and the Amazon Fire TV 4-Series TVs are, though.

Design
Stand

The stand is basic but supports the TV well. They're wide-set, though, so you'll need a wide TV table if you're not planning on wall-mounting it.

Footprint of the 65" stand: 55.2" x 14". The feet raise the screen about 4.3" above the table, so pretty much any soundbar fits in front of it without blocking the screen.

Design

The back is plain, but the inputs face to the side and are very easy to access when the TV is wall-mounted. Sadly, there are no clips or tracks for cable management.

The bottom half of the screen houses all the electronics and inputs, and it's quite a bit thicker than the top half. The thicker section prevents the TV from sitting completely flush against the wall if it's wall-mounted.

Build Quality

The Amazon Fire TV Omni QLED Series has good build quality overall. Although it's not made of premium materials, it feels well-built overall, and there are no noticeable issues. There's a bit of flex on the back panel, but this is common and won't cause any issues.

The Amazon Fire TV Omni QLED Series has decent peak brightness in SDR, but it's significantly dimmer than the TCL 5 Series/S555 2022 QLED. It's bright enough to overcome a moderate amount of glare, and it looks good in a moderately-lit room. There's very little variation in brightness with difference scenes.

These measurements are after calibration in the 'Movie Dark' Picture Mode with the Backlight at its max, Contrast at '50', Gamma at '0', and the Color Temperature set to 'Warm'.

Full-Array

The Amazon Fire TV Omni QLED Series has a decent full array local dimming feature. The 65" model has 80 dimming zones, resulting in a fairly large zone size, so there's some mild blooming noticeable around bright highlights or subtitles. With most real content, it's not noticeable, but in dark scenes with bright areas, the light bleeds into darker areas of the screen. Zone transitions are quite noticeable as small objects move across the screen, but it keeps up well with fast-moving objects. The most noticeable issue is a trailing bright tail, as the TV keeps zones lit longer than they need to be.

Most of the zones are on most of the time, so there's very little black crush. Small details are maintained well for the most part, but they're sometimes lost when they're near the edge of the screen. The 75" model has 96 dimming zones, but this isn't enough of an increase in dimming zones to result in a noticeable improvement in local dimming performance.

480p Input

Like the Amazon Fire TV 4-Series, the Amazon Fire TV Omni Series doesn't display 480p content properly, as the image is cut slightly and then stretched to fill the screen. None of the upscaling settings correct this issue. It's only an issue with sources that output at 480p, like an old DVD player. If your player upscales to 1080p on its own, this won't be an issue for you.

Unfortunately, 720p content, like most cable TV channels, isn't quite displayed properly. The image is stretched a bit and doesn't respect the source content's aspect ratio. Again, this is only an issue on sources that don't upscale to 1080p already.

Like the Amazon Fire TV Omni Series, this TV is limited to a 60Hz refresh rate, but unlike the previous model, this TV supports a variable refresh rate to reduce screen tearing. Unfortunately, the screen can only refresh within a narrow range, and low framerate compensation (LFC) isn't supported, so you'll see more tearing in games that are locked at a lower refresh rate or in busier scenes.

The Amazon Fire TV Omni QLED Series has superb low input lag, but only in the 'Game' Picture Mode. Outside of 'Game' Mode, including in 'PC' Mode, the input lag is unusably high.

Unfortunately, the Amazon Fire TV Omni QLED Series doesn't display chroma 4:4:4 properly with any supported resolution, even in 'PC' Mode, so text appears blurry from a PC. It can't display 1440p signals properly, either.

The Amazon Fire TV Omni QLED Series has a decent frequency response. Like most TVs, there's very little bass response, with no thump or rumble in deep bass. Dialogue sounds clear, though, and it sounds clear at high listening levels, with little compression. It doesn't get very loud, so you're better off with a speaker system or soundbar.

The remote is nearly identical to the voice remote included with most Fire TV streaming sticks or TVs. It has built-in voice controls that can be used to change inputs, launch apps, or search for content, but it can't change settings on the TV. The TV also has a built-in microphone that you can use for hands-free voice control.

TV Controls

There's a single button located in the middle of the TV that you can use to turn the tv on or off and change inputs. There's also a physical switch that allows you to disable the microphones used for voice control.
