TekReviews trust me, based on your douchey comments we can tell you've been building pcs in your moms basement for quite some time. Good for you man, you knew about a feature on a TV. Holy hell what would the world do without such knowledge?
Your contribution to the human race has not and will not go unnoticed. We will hold parades and holidays to celebrate your genius. Get a grip loser.
I know about the UPDATE and still this NOOB thinks it doesn't do HDR, even RTINGS.COM said it DOES. I suggest you stop being an anal troll. I know what the APPS do, I was talking about HDR on the HDMI ports which IT DID NOT HAVE when it was SOLD!!!! Even though they still claimed at BEST BUY that it was a HDR tv when in fact that was not entirely true! It only played HDR through the USB ports UNTIL the update! Yeah your facts are pathetic and I've been building PC's since 1982, so I think I know enough about electronics and repairing televisions. You Tube BLOCK works wonders for you trolls.
This is one of the best TV reviews I have seen on YouTube! You give all the relevant technical information, an excellent user experience, useful recommendations and a solid conclusion. I am seriously considering buying a Hisense 4K TV and you have helped me a great deal. Many thanks.
I have this tv, how come when I go to setting then picture mode , I go down to where it says “ HDMI 2.0 Format” its blocked out and I can’t click it. Is this the reason my tv doesn’t look as HD as I thought it would be ? The picture is not that clear ,so why is that option not available to me? I have an hdmi cable hooked up from my tv to my PS4 and cable box . Do I have to buy a different hdmi cable ?? Please please help !
STJEPAN HORVAT I hate to burst your bubble but just about everything is made from chyna. Even the high end tv parts are made from chyna so let's just get that straight. Without chyna, we would pretty much be in the dark ages so get it right next time..
I got it and since I have fiber optic cable the tv pic is great .Not sure if that helps but the pic is crystal clear .I already have a hisense 40 inch and it has been in my den for a year and works great .I guess I will see if it last but for that amount of money I can't loose
Hisense has horrible quality control. I don't know where they source their parts, but they clearly don't have someone checking the quality of their hardware. These tv's are a luck of the draw. Some are built solid while others break down too often.
Not worth it. Well, let me ask you. What are you going to use it for? Sports? Bad TV! Over the Air? Bad TV! Streaming Apps like Netflix, HULU and other forms of streaming? Cool. Also, the angle viewing is horrible. U better sit right in the middle of the tv. Not an issue if this is your bedroom tv and watch it from one position. Clearly an issue if watching it from multiple spots like living room
I got this TV from Walmart refurbished for 280$! I wasn't even looking at buying a TV, but at that price and literally because of this review I went ahead and bought it. I still have not tested it but with all the positive reviews it should be worth what I paid for.
Lmao. It is a 10bit panel, and Dolby Vision uses 12 however there are no 12 bit panels on the market currently just 10bits that are being pushed to achieve 12-bit(Dolby Vision) so it is possible but not likely
I just bought a Sharp Lc-43n6100u. do you think the Hisense h8 is a better TV?, I have 90days to take the Sharp back if I decide I don't like it. One thing I don't like about the Sharp, is I cannot download Hulu, so I still have to use my gaming console to stream Hulu, which I'm guessing Hulu could be downloaded to the Hisense
"Also, good response time for casual gamers." What is a casual gamer, and why would a "casual gamer" waste money on 4k when "casual gamers" tend to play indie games as validated from many sources like PcMaster Race
I used it here and there. Unfortunately I've been focused on school (last week) so I haven't used it to the extent that I want (5 or 6hrs) but I tested it out. Pretty good imo. Tried a couple games at 4k 60fps and it looks good
I have had this TV for about 2 months now. We use it as our bedroom television, watch UHD movies and gaming on the Xbox One S. We love it. My only complaint is that the viewing angles are pretty bad. We sit in bed directly in front of it, so it works perfectly for us. The picture quality is amazing in 4K. We have only watched Deadpool on UHD so far, and Netflix 4K streaming. We paid $449.99 for this TV, and there's nothing in that price range that can touch it as far as picture quality and features are concerned.
@James the ku6300 have tons of apps, Bluetooth , better contrast, brightness with the lowest input for gaming, more video and audio connectivity, web browser, child lock, ccc and its around $300-$490 at walmart
Nicholas J. Paris I game occasionally but not competitively so the input lag I don't notice at all. I don't think the Samsung is a bad TV at all. My friend has a 60" 6270 it looks nice but I still prefer the hisense.
James Garlets yeah I had both TVs to compare to. Overall I found the Samsung much more response, lower input lag, and better app support.
The sharp/hisense is still a good TV, but if you're a gamer or want better response from the remote or more app support, LG and Samsung got that Market
Nicholas J. Paris It's not true Hdr I understand that. But it works better than most budget Led tvs that I have seen. I looked at the Samsung 6300 as well as this tv. This tv looked better than the Samsung. It's all individuals preference. So if you prefer the Samsung that's great. I don't like their UI, as well as imo this Hisense looked better.
I keep reading that you only get HDR on the USB port and the 4K Apps on the tv. They keep saying firmware update will give you HDR on the HDMI but it needs to be a HDCP 2.2 HDMI port from what I hear to even get HDR.
RTINGS calls it Chroma Subsampling, there are various versions of HDR like HDR 10 and Dolby Vision as well. RTINGS gives it 83 percent of the D3 PCI spectrum. It might not be as good as other high end HDR tvs but what can you expect for a tv that is selling at Best Buy for $299. I'm surprised he keeps highlighting those who say it doesn't have HDR yet his video still says HDR 4K tv. Funny shit. Dude must be staying up late monitoring every message on here and only picking ones that he likes. Reality sucks for some people.
I had an update as soon as I finished setting it up. I had to change an hdmi setting to advanced to have their version of HDR on hdmi port 3 and 4. My xbox one s shows 4k with hdr enabled. It's not real hdr though.
Read the description! It says HDR 55 inch but HiSense said ONLY FOR USB PORTS they keep telling customers it's going to get a FIRMWARE UPDATE to make the HDMI port use HDR! Why did you get a HIGHLIGHTED COMMENT when you are a MORON! And a TROLL! I know all about this tv and them trying to say it's HDR when people are questioning it. You know nothing about HDR or checkers.
Good, concise review.
I'd like to share that this summer Hisense aka Sharp TV
will be selling
65 inch 4K ULED TV's that meet Dolby Vision specs etc
all for $799.
This TV will bite a chunk out of LG's OLED market.
It's said the Hisense ULED is 3X brighter & last 2 times as long
as the OLED TV's.
Just a heads up.
Is it worth getting the samsung Ks8000 over this tv because im mainly gonna be using it for Hdr. But for 500 dollars that its running for at Best Buy this is a hard offer to pass up. Just curious as to how big of a difference in Hdr the picture quality would be. If the extra 500 bucks for the samsung would be worth it or not. Im insanely on the fence about this.
If you have the extra $500 and can spend it without concern about it, then get the KS8000. If you think you may regret that $500, get the Hisense. These two TVs cannot be compared and if you want the best in HDR at that price range the ks8000 series is it. I have the Hisense and thought about the 8000 as well. For me it came down to simply not wanting to part with $1600 vs $765 I spent for the Hisense. I used the extra money for an entertainment center and a new xbox 1s. If it wasnt a concern of cost, and I wasnt so budget conscious I would have the 8000. Comparing side by side though purely speaking of cost vs features I don't think the ks8000 is worth it in my case.
That TV is right up my alley for my bedroom. Adding a Shield Android TV unit to it would probably be awesome too. very good value and the link that you provided for the US customers is selling it for only $375 for the 55 inch. funny thing is that the 50 inch is almost $600 lol
Great video, Matt! Before going with the Sony x800D, I looked into getting this tv. Unfortunately, it's not readily available in Canada so I went with the Sony instead. Still have a Panny plasma from 2012 that looks great too.
plasma is good trust me.I have plasma end year model and 2014 model led tv And plasma is good so.Led tv have color much better yes..
motion real-100Hz led tv and plasma
real- 50Hz ;
plasma 50Hz better motion picture.
hisense for this money cost 🖐🖒 for 4k 2x hdmi 60Hz and HDR not bad.
For How long ???is real?but is your select...
thx and good video Mattew.
Depends on the plasma! Their are some really good ones and some really poor ones.. Before OLED a lot of videophiles would cling dearly on to their plasma TVs since they provided the best viewing experience.
18% 1 star Amazon ratings...the TV came out a couple of years ago, but May 2016 the HDR version. I was tempted last summer but went with Panasonic Viera (true 4k 4096) and I will not get a new TV until HDR is actually broadcasted regularly AND at a more affordable price. Quantum Dot LED's are the way forward and will be my next but I'm hoping my Panasonic will last long enough for Gen 2 QD-LED Electro Luminescent..5 years. (by then the public will be conned into buying 8k with zero content for 2 years just like 4k...)
