I believe it is, mine gets delivered tomorrow so I will be able to post more info then.

The listed spec on ao, has no HDR listed.
Is that a deal breaker ?
I'm really tempted ... oO

No HDR ! very cold. Don't spend ur money on non HDR

Deal breaker

Heat. Bought 2 for the kids rooms.

Excellent deal for this price and for this size screen

I think his set has HDR. I think the AO details are incorrect.

The big question is what kind of backlighting does it have. The 720 was an amazing FALD set.

I'm getting it tomorrow so I will confirm. HDR was promised for the 2015 version in an update that never made it.
AO says this model has Amazon prime though

Amazon video availability is a big one. As is whether HDR works with Amazon and Netflix. Some reports online that they are currently only supporting HDR through built in media player and not from streaming services yet.

The type of backlighting and peak brightness will be important to figure out whether this can do real HDR or not.

>>>>>
HEAT on the price... however this is not a HDR set, it will only be hdr with the new
firmware... it is also the 2015 panel, not the 2016 panel ;-)

How do I buy this TV?

i know Walmart in America import a lot of Hisense technology and sell them cheaply in their supermarts. I dont mind going on holiday over there and buying one. Its the small problem of bringing it into the country and paying tax on it. Anyone with any sane ideas put it on UKHOT deals

Thanks, will hold off on this then!

Look forward to your review, BluntMachetti.

If you get a chance, would be interested as to whether it is good for gaming and whether you can connect your pc to it and have it output 4:4:4 Chroma 4k@ 60hz

Do you still have to pay tax if a resident there buys it and then sends it over here as a present?

You absolutely do have to pay tax, the "I'll send it as a gift and not pay any duty" myth is still going strong I see >

Sadly I don't think this has much in comparison with the K720 - for a start it's a flat panel and more importantly I would go out on a limb to say it is an edge-lit TV although nothing in the specs to confirm this.

The big selling point for the K720 is that it is FALD.

Crofter has a point

Ok so the K720 is £999.99
Which is the better TV ?

There is also this.

3.4 How do I arrive at the customs value?

You base it on the price actually paid or payable by the buyer to the seller for the goods. This means the total payment made or to be made by the buyer to or for the benefit of the seller for the imported goods.

The point being is you'll definitely have to pay tax on an imported TV even if it's a gift.

Cheers, good to know!

Hiya mate, I am guessing the HDR is via USB and the built in media player?? If that is the case I don't think it is much use other than running HDR demos on loop at the present time ... of course that may change.

If you want to check to see dimming zones then run this test - make sure local dimming is activated on your tv and increase the contrast to maximum:

Thanks, will try it when i get back home tonight.

On the box it did say HDR Local Playback only, so wouldnt that be USB and not the streaming services like Netflix?
