Looking for a cheapish 4k TV 50 inch max and came across the new Hisense model, comes with a 6 year guarantee and apparently HDR? Not too much info around as its not been out too long. Looks like a decent deal for the price, anyone agree?

Under the specifications section it has a cross next to HDR, where does it say that it's HDR.

I read on a forum someone saying that the box even says its HDR, one second..I will find the link for ya.

55 inch model but I assume the specs are the same.

That would make this TV roughly 50% cheaper than other HDR tvs, unless I'm wrong in assuming that HDR tvs are around 800 -900 for an entry level hdr TV ... sounds a bit too good to be true, hope it is though

This is a bargain kids

If it has HDR then this is a bargain but I would still go for the 55 inch model because for 4K to be more noticeable you need a 55inch tv

Cant find pics of the rear of this tv...

50" in 8k would be the ultimate computer monitor. Both big and retina. Maybe in a few years time...

Retina?

2 inch smaller and £50 more expensive but a better set imo. - richersounds.com/pro…400 - I have one and I'm now selling my Panny plasma.

Is the picture better than your Panasonic plasma ?

I have this exact tv, got it a few months ago and I mostly use it for Netflix (4k goodness) and also run my gaming PC through it (980ti) for a 4k desktop, it works like a 4 x 25" x 1080p monitor setup, it's really good. I'd highly recommend it as a TV to use for inputs; PCs, Consoles etc. as the input lag is low in Gaming mode and it supports 4k 60Hz and 1080p 120Hz (good for FPS and general smooth gaming). However the smart functions are pretty poor (compared to competitors), the games and apps are akin to what comes on a knockoff iPhone and casting functions are limited, the speakers are quite good though and the panel is very good.

In short, to run a PC through or console or Amazon Fire box (4k one), YES.
As a standalone Smart TV for a living room, probably not, unless you only watch Youtube, iPlayer and Netflix. I'd recommend an Android TV instead.

P.S. No Youtube 4k on this TV

Are richer sounds any good? Never used them...

They are very good. The 6 year guarantee is with them, I'm pretty sure it's only 2 years normally (not 100% sure on this though). They have good support also. A friend of mine (who is in the IT business) worked for them for a short time and had nothing but good things to say about them.

All they have to do is now is price match ao on the 58" then.

What about as a standalone TV using Sky etc Movies TV shows?
or streaming via Kodi?

What makes it a better set IYO?

Is the picture better than your Panasonic plasma ?


No - I don't think it is - It's a compromise for me as have kids who want to game on it and I'm not having that on a plasma. That said - it's the best led set I've had but can still see the un-uniform background - light leaks etc.

Brand support - Samsung vs Hisense - apps etc - compatibility with phone apps.

If it has HDR i'd be less bothered about 4k.

They would work better together on a larger screen.

Can you get 1080p HDR?

Yes. But my point is that HDR would be worth getting a smaller 4k TV for, even if it wasn't noticeable at 4k....
Of course I meant, No!

Still none the wiser! 8-)

Do your research guys, it's a well known fact that to get the full effect of a 4K tv, it has to be a minimum of 55 inches. HDR is for contrast and colour, 4K is for pixels so they work well together and they work best with 55 inches and above.

I am waiting for ultra hd premium certified tv's to come back down in price before making my purchase.
Have installed sky q and I am told in August will be able to watch in 4K.

Do your research too... depends on your viewing distance.

Very true. I sit 3 feet from mine when using it as a (gaming/video editing) desktop and the 4k is immense as you can still use it perfectly, text is very sharp and you can resize windows to your field of view. I sit around 15 feet away for TV viewing, I'd say 4k is still definitely noticeable, it's hard to prove with numbers though.

When you go to the cinema what is your viewing distance and how many inches is the screen.

Yes, with HDR.

Back onto this tv... Can anyone comment on its gaming lag?
And Netflix 4k,
Also, if anyone has it, BT 4k?
How many 4k capable inputs does it have?

I would buy a smaller 4k TV, because it has HDR
and no worry too much about the 50/55 inch rule of worth for 4k TVs

Maybe the way I worded it.
"If it has HDR i'd be less bothered about 4k."
If it has HDR i'd be less aowrried about the supposed required screen size for 4k - i.e. don't matter if it's 4k s long as it's got HDR


Try and find an HDR tv with no 4K.
