Big screen, small price
At a price point where most 4K HDR TVs offer a screen size of around 40", this Hisense hits out with an impressive 50" screen. This makes all the difference, especially with films, where this size of screen truly immerses you in the picture. Thanks to 4K UHD resolution, you can also sit closer than a conventional FHD, 1080p TV, making a big screen a far more realistic proposition in a smaller room than ever before.
HDR - High Dynamic Range for superb contrast
Taking 4K UHD one stage further, the 50M5500 boasts HDR (High Dynamic Range) compatibility. This extends the range of colours for enhanced realism. It also delivers brighter whites and darker blacks, helping to give this TV stunning levels of contrast.
Fantastically detailed 4K UHD on the big screen
The bigger the screen the greater the difference 4K UHD makes, so on this Hisense 50 inch TV stunner, it's a big difference. With four times the resolution of Full 1080p HD, 4K (UHD) TV offers stunning detail and resolution for totally life-like realism. Even without a native 4K UHD signal, UHD upscaling means that you can scale up an ordinary HD signal to make the best of the screen. Get Netflix 4K or other 4K content and the image just keeps getting better.
Packing a Quad Core processor, the Hisense is a powerful performer with Smart content, too. Connect up to your home network by Ethernet or Wi-Fi and enjoy access to a wide range of apps including favourites such as Netflix, YouTube and Twitter. A built-in web browser and DLNA compatibility lets you browse and stream to your heart's content.
For seamless integration with your other devices, Anyview Cast and Anyview Stream let you share content from your smartphone, tablet or computer and show it on the big screen.
With four HDMI sockets, the 50M5500 easily copes with the most complex home entertainment systems. Two of these sockets are the latest HDMI 2.0 version with HDCP 2.2, making this TV compatible with the latest UHD Blu-ray (non-HDR playback) and streaming services. Other connections include no fewer than three USB sockets, one of which is the latest USB 3.0 version for a high speed link. Throw in an optical connection for a soundbar/base and you've got everything you need in a 4K TV.
One of the USB sockets lets you connect up a USB memory stick to use as a PVR. PVR stands for Personal Video Recorder and lets you record TV programmes via the set's Electronic Programme Guide. It can also pause live TV - just like a subscription based set-top box.
Fantastic Freeview HD
It might be some way behind 4K, but Freeview HD is still a huge step-up on regular Freeview TV. If you're not using Sky, Virgin, BT or another digital TV provider, Freeview HD is the way to go for free-to-access digital TV through your existing aerial. Compared to standard Freeview, images are far more detailed, with rich colour and enhanced realism.
