Enjoy a compelling picture quality with colour-boosting HDR on the Hisense 55M5500. Backed by four-times the resolution of Full HD, this 10-bit has the ability to play programmes and movies in a beautiful High Dynamic Range. Furthermore, with the brand’s state-of-the-art Smart platform, you’ll be entertained with apps such as Netflix, Youtube and Wuaki.tv. And if you have an Android smart device, you can beam content directly onto the big-screen using AnyView Cast.

Super-Sharp 4K

To respond to screens getting bigger, brands have packed their screens with more pixels. This 50-inch screen has four times the number of pixels than 1080p HD TVs, delivering stunning realism, natural motion and incredible detail.

Experience this high-spec picture across a range of broadcasts, movies, sports and more thanks to 4K upscaling. As it converts lower resolution content to near-4K quality, anything you watch on the big screen will be truly extraordinary. This set’s smooth 1000 Hz refresh rate makes it perfect for watching sport, too.

HDR support

With its 10-bit panel, the 55M5500 can show over a billion individual colours to deepen your view and shows shades you’ve never seen in home entertainment before. The source content needs to be HDR for you to fully appreciate the picture, but here lies an element of future-proofing a new era of television.

Quad-Core smart platform

This set’s Hisense Smart platform is ran by a rapid quad-core processor, so you’ll browse seamlessly. Do anything from stream shows on Netflix and Amazon, keep up with the weather on Accuweather or play clips on YouTube. Other apps included Wuaki.tv, Plex, Facebook and Twitter.*

AnyView Cast

With AnyView Cast, you can mirror content on your Android smart device onto the TV. You could show holiday snaps to guests, play games on the big screen or continue watching movies from a commute – the possibilities are endless. Please note that this feature doesn’t work on iOS devices.

OP is incorrect, it's NOT a 10bit panel. It can process 10bit but it's not going to show you all those colours. Don't be fooled.

Seems far too cheap to be a true 10 bit screen? I guess it's not one of the big brands, but this still seems really too cheap for a 10bit HDR screen.

I understand that John Lewis provide a 2 year warranty.
what's richer sounds one going to be like?
also interested to see the opinion of the HDUK community and see if it is indeed a good telly.

Yup, and a 6 year guarantee vs 5 years with JL.

Voted cold.

From what i've read, Hisense are an excellent budget brand. I'd be interested to see some legit reviews for this

I read this is an 8bit panel that can process a 10bit signal so not a true 10bit panel ?

​I remember reading about it when I was looking for a TV but cannot find any hard evidence. the rather low brightness rating and no mention on Richer Sounds about a 10 bit panel seems to say it's not....

m7000 series is 10bit I believe

​I was told today it was a 8 bit panel via one online store.

apparently is 8bit, but can play 10bit files.

seen somewhere they're calling it 8+2

other than getting more details on true native 10 bit resolution.
what's the upscaling like?
anyone know?

On AV forum Hisense reply for panel info was... The panel itself is a 10 bit one, however, the TCON board in this set can’t process 10 bit signal, which means the 10 bits are actually dithered 10 bits.

if this had 3D I'd have got it!

​Its only bloody £700. Not aimed primarily at you but everyone moans, its still a LOT of TV for £700.

that's still a lot of money.
I am looking for a telly and may end up spending this much, however I would want the best value and features for that money.

So 8bit + FRC?

so its not really a 10 bit panel then?

its like LG with their "4K" tv's

so first we had to deal with
Fake 4K!
and now
Fake 10 Bit Panels


This is Great! more confusing for consumers!

whats the difference between this and

apart from the obvious 55" vs 65"

Thanks in advance!

Do the Samsung SUHD series have 10 bit panels?

why is this even getting heat when just couple of days ago 65" was for £692 at AO.com

not only cheaper its a whole 10" more!

common sense?

does anyone here have one of these
I'm torn between this one and the same with local dimming h55m7000 would love to know the difference if anyone knows

cheers

Hi , anyone bought one of these yet?

Or any reviews available?

Cheers

tclutton

This is a full 10bit panel



What are you basing that on?

So a 10bit panel means hdr10?.. Its all very confusing

Here's a review from a spanish site translated:

mall gray spots on the edges are seen, they are the same I saw on the video from youtube, but the reality is that once set a radio tdt or a movie, have not been back to appreciate, just that as they are there, I am able to identify them , but the proof is that the whole family and friends who have seen it , none has been able to find, except when I have put the "picture perfect target." the detection tdt and satellite channels has been amazing, with my previous TV had signal problems and the sensitivity of this all I get 100% without problems, I have not had a single pixelization in the channel changes. The sd channels has me re climbed smoothly and perfect for my taste HD. The sound system that brings the TV personally find poor, but maybe that was used to my team, to which I have connected smoothly, the function arc without problems, detection of peripheral has not given me problems (PS3 , AVR-2313, DVD / SACD-pionner, and KODI (media center) detection of a hard disk of 1 Tb -..

Quoted from HERE

the 7000 series is 100 quid more and had local dimming and according to the salesman at richer sounds has much better motion processing so videogames and sports will be better.

mcormack

Do the Samsung SUHD series have 10 bit panels?



Yes and 1000 nits as they are certified, unlike this

mikem1989

@chasoloDidn't 3D die somewhere back in the noughties


No it didnt! Its still current and its a disappointment that this TV dosnt have it

Another false economy.

Voted cold because it's NOT a true 10bit panel, and with Richer you get more warranty.

Why is this even a deal let alone a hot one. Cheaper and better terms elsewhere

The 65" was discussed on the AV Forums podcast.

Verdict was that it was superb except for very bad blacklist bleed and consistency.

Avforum review if the 65 says it's really 8 bit

Just bought one of these in 55", from Richer Sounds. Paid £630 including the 6 year warranty.

Was looking at the LG, Samsung, and Pioneer TV for around £800, but this one seemed to handle SD and HD content better though an arial and sky box. Couldn't see much difference in 4k picture in the store, in the end this was by far the cheapest.

Played around with the YouTube app, and the 4k samples looked really good.
