Good price, shame Which give it such a poor review 47%

Pros
Sharp picture when not in motion
Good remote

Cons
Rubbish sound
Bad at handling motion
Slow menus
Badly balanced contrast
Yes, the sound is poor but when you turn on high def mode the frame rate increases. Interface isn't really good, slow at times. Remote has a mic.
I've got the 50" version and the sound compared to my previous budget TV is 100x better.

Can't fault the TV for the money!

Whoever reviews Hisense for Which? seems to have a problem with whatever they put out.
I got the 65 version and cant fault it. Richer had it for £489 recently. Ao is £478 but 2 years Vs 6 on the guarantee, id still use RS

Samsung UE50RU7020 same price and way better value although it's a 50"

My sister just upgraded to a low end Hisense 4K tv coming from a 12 year old Panasonic 720p plasma.

Aside from the uptick in resolution and brightness, it's worse on every level. The macroblocking on all sources is horrific, these screens are cheap for a reason. Perfectly fine for a kitchen tv, but I wouldn't recommend one as a main set.
Turn off all motion setting, noise reduction etc, and the picture improves massively on my Hisense.

All enhancements turned off even before calibration, mpeg noise reduction setting, even at high, only improved the issue a little.

I may be a little pickier than most and wouldn't have gone for a tv at this range anyway. She seems happy enough but would have returned myself.

Yep.. so £30 for 5 years in total. Or are my maths off? :/ Also AO returns Vs John Lewis.. if something's wrong with the TV, AO just palm you off elsewhere. Tried and tested.

I've been wanting to upgrade my 50" JVC for a long time but as basic TV, it's been perfect for the past 4.5 years when I purchased it for £250. I'm hoping the bloody thing breaks so I can get something fancy like this but then I want to get my money's worth! :/

The B7100, B7300, and 43" B7500 don't have any motion processing.

On cheaper TV's a low level of motion processing can be helpful. For example, my Samsung NU7400 has terrible motion judder and blurring on all sub 60fps content, but setting judder reduction to 3/10 makes it much more watchable, while still keeping the filmic look.

HDR10 is a metadata standard. It just means that the TV can decode HDR10 metadata, not that the panel is 10-bit.

It's misleading when manufacturers put 10-bit in their specifications, when it's actually an 8-bit panel.

Big time. 10 bit panels are decent. HDR10 only really works decent in my opinion when the panel is 10 bit and can do it right 👌
Can any owners advise if its possible to pick up freeview play via WiFi as my TV signal is weak blocked in by big buildings

As far as I’m aware you still need the signal for the channel to be able to use it, the WiFi is just for the apps

This is the problem though, for a non clued up person they wouldn't know that, so as it's been said it's very misleading.
All specs should be listed on TVs imo.
Input lag per ratio/port etc, hdr, nits yet they don't and just use misleading terms

Freeview play will only give catch-up access to the main channels, it isn't a replacement for Freeview channels from an aerial.
I have the 50" model from 2 years ago and absolutely love it. I watch BT TV (4K box, though usually HD content), Amazon FireTV (4K), and PS4 gaming. I think the picture is brilliant, I spent a little time adjusting it initially and ever since the TV looks great. Very bright colours, great contrast, and excellent motion (I turned down the motion blur). I experience 0 Lag while playing video games (something I heard other TVs may have issues with). The menus speeds are fine, I don't use any of the built in applications (since I have the FIreTV and run apps off that), usually only switch between inputs. Sound is also being pushed out to my amp (via fiber optic cable) as I would NEVER use any TV's built in speakers... ever (I suggest if you don't have space for an amp+speakers then at least get decent sound bar to use).

So that's my real world review... don't care that it's an 8-bit panel, don't care that the viewing angles aren't amazing (I sit in front of the TV while watching). I have to say that this company really got the balance right between price, quality and features.

I hear they are starting to do OLED this year... can't wait for that! My dream is 50-55" OLED at a sub £500 price.
