Specs say no HDR?

Specs say no HDR?



Have a look at the video on the specs on the Hisense site.

HDR through USB at the moment but I rang them a few days ago and they confirmed that not only is the panel 10 bit but there is also a firmware update coming that will allow HDR through HDMI too for all models in this series.

Will believe it when i see it, their are loads of posts on the AV forums about Hisense saying their TV's are HDR and that it will be enabled via a update but never has and people have been waiting months and months. Unless it has the correct Hdmi sockets it cant be enabled, i have a LG 860V and the same thing is going on with that will they wont they enable HDR or even can they. I would buy this TV and except no HDR and if it ever happens its a bonus.

I know that some manufacturers 2015 models may not enable a firmware update but all 2016 ones are supposed to be.

Time will tell of course.

The fact that this has a 10 bit panel is probably what makes it more of a prospective probability.

I have this TV, bought it last time it was posted on here. The Netflix and YouTube apps are both very good, quick and in 4k. there are loads of settings which I propably need to tweak on the TV as far as I know you can get HDR through the first HDMI port as I have my shield TV hooked upto this port and I knows it set to full dynamic range but im pretty certain it's only at 30hz through this port. For the price this is a fantastic TV and the remote even works on my shield to control my media apps
Can anyone comment on response time/input lag/refresh rate? I can't see these mentioned in the spec sheet. Would love to use one as a computer monitor.
Never heard of hisense, sounds like some cheap rubbish. better off with a well known brand like bush, alba or technika

Hi, out of interest Where does it say 10 bit panel for this TV?
I have this TV... it's really great. No complaints... not "overly" smart, picture is very good (once calibrated). Looks really really good. 4K looks great on it, 1080P looks fantastic as well. I guess the only thing I would change would be the ability to rename the HDMI ports (like TV, Game, Fire TV, etc). I would highly recommend it.:D

It doesn't on the specs but when I spoke to the hosense technical dept to enquire, they specified that it was a 10 bit panel.

I also tried to tell AO to modify the HDR spec on their site for this model range but it fell on deaf ears.

This guy did a review of the 43 inch version from the same range, where he connects his laptop, although didn't carry out any extensive testing as a monitor or gaming

You could post a comment on his channel to see if he is willing to carry out some more tests and produce a video.

​Whoosh!!!!!!!
Loads of tv for the money
£429 at richer sounds with 6 year guarantee also may price match
I watched Euro 2016 on it, MotoGP racing, Forumual 1, got the Xbox360 connected to it, watch HD action movies regularly, motion blur is excellent, there are 4 settings (including off), and even at full it's not over-the-top. You need to be a little careful with motion blur as it can easily make things look very unnatural. Colours, contracts, sharpness, up-scaling (HD especially), is really really good. SD content is okay (but I think most UHD tvs have a problem with SD content). All the setting can be set per input separately or one setting for all. The menus are fast/responsive and not over-the-top animation, the "smart" functions are NOT in your face. Even the optical out pushes ALL sound out whether it source is HDMI (stereo/surround/etc) or video/audio in, I have all the sound come out of the TV optical out back to my receiver (even has the option to turn off the TV speaker completely). Just really happy with it, and for this price I can "upgrade" in the next couple of years and still come in under some of the other over-priced TVs.

Sat here still with my 2012 panasonic plasma waiting till the OLEDs come down in price. But this is tempting.
Just a mention that might be important to some, this is NOT HDR....check the colour specs on the website. Apparently the high dynamic range can make a big difference. Looks like a good buy otherwise though.

Can you elaborate because I can't see anything in the specs to think that it is not HDR.

You may have information and expertise that could be useful with an explanation as to why it would not be the case.

Because I would then ring Hisense and read them the riot act.

I dont see any on their website you have to phone your local store for stock availability. And I doubt they will pricematch as this deal requires a discount code..
erm..... what in the lords name is a hisense ? cold from me.

Given the kind of customer service levels typically seen at any Richer Sounds store, I'd gladly pay the extra 30 quid even if I didn't get the extra 5 years' warranty!
These guys let me audition 2 sets of speakers at home a while back before I settled on the kind of sound I liked. An exemplar of great customer service, bar none.

I do have to agree that when you are in a Richer Sounds store that they are very attentive and take their time to help.

Top notch for customer service indeed.

​To put the HDR thing into perspective, to be sure to get it you need to go for a TV labeled Ultra HD Premium. If you can find one for £399, buy it!

​Just to be clear, I bought this TV knowing it wasn't true HDR. All I can say is the picture is as good as anything I have seen below £1000.

​only a moron would expect to get a 50" 4k tv for less than £400 that also includes proper HDR.

it's most likely an 8 bit panel with electronics driving it that can process hdr but not display it as its meant to be.

if you want hdr then stop looking at 50" tvs for £400
