It's all in the detail

From the Sunday league to Spielberg's latest flick, it all looks great on the Hisense H55B7100UK 55" Smart 4K Ultra HD HDR LED TV. The 4K Ultra HD display means everything looks pin-sharp, and even upscales lower resolution shows to bring new levels of detail to old classics.

Forget blown out highlights and lost details in the shadows. Everything looks just as it should thanks to HDR technology. By maximising contrast and colour accuracy, your movies and shows look more realistic.

Can't wait to watch the latest episode of your favourite show? Hisense's smart platform makes it quick and simple to find what you're looking for. Whether you want a Netflix box set, or check what's trending on YouTube, everything is just a few clicks away.

And with Freeview Play, it's easy to catch up on shows you've missed during the week. Simply use the programme guide to scroll back and launch soaps, dramas, or entertainment from the likes of BBC and ITV.

Sound bar quality audio

The Hisense B7100 offers brilliant sound quality straight out the box. You get deep bass and crisp highs that surround you, and draw you into the action.

I have this TV. It is excellent for the price. It won’t be as good as the OLED’s or much more expensive options but it does everything you would want it to and I believe it is a very fair price.
Great deal, shame John Lewis no longer sell it otherwise could have price matched to get the extra warranty
Hisense a decent brand nowadays?
Had this TV for while after taking the 'cheaper option' for a spare room. Excellent picture for the price just don't expect to be able to load apps onto it as the OS is poor. Heat Op

I wouldn't touch hisense again had 2 go wrong on me in the last 2 years. Fortunately amazon replaced one and refunded me on the other. Now got a budget lg and it's 10 times better than the Hisense
I got this one, its all good tv but quality on fire stick is not HDR, and on games not HDR.
My Hisense last 2 weeks after 2 year warranty. Constant software down loads. Never buy another

I've got the 65" and it does HDR on the fire stick and PS4. Have you turned on "Enhanced format" in the system settings?

is actually this named setting there?
Yeah, Settings > System > HDMI & CEC Functions > HDMI 2.0 Format > Enhanced format
A bit of info about my experience with the sound. I had the 65" 7300 and sent it back due to bad hissing and crackling at low volume. It was basically unwatchable of a night. Wasn't happy for £500.

I ended up getting the 65" 7100 for £390 (£20 TCB pending still) and that was the same with the sound which I expected. I was going to go the soundbar route to fix the problem.

The 7100 had an update the other day and the sound problems are gone. Not the kind of thing I thought could be fixed with software but it's no longer there!
I've got a question for anyone else that has one of these. Sometimes when I have the TV Guide open when pressing back to close it the whole screen shrinks and the aspect ration is wrong. Literally like watching an old 4:3 program centred on the screen in original resolution.

The remote has no obvious aspect ratio adjustment and it's not in the menu. This affects live TV and HDMI inputs, but weirdly not the apps so YouTube etc are still fine.

Has anyone got a work-around for this or had anything similar? Currently the only way to correct it is to do a full factory reset which I just have done once per week since getting it.

I really dont want to go through the hassle of sending it back to JL if it is a simple button press that I have completely overlooked.

I'm pretty sure I got asked if I wanted to turn this on first time I got my ps4 working. My old HD TV had a different setting so kept losing signal every few seconds and I had to open ps4 on safe mode to fix it! Must say I'm happy with tv, sound is pretty decent but I can hear it when I pop my kettle on wierdy. I have some speakers for my TV anyway but impressed with the sound. I found some of the apps on the TV freeze and I have to turn off at the wall. I have an nvidia shield so just use that as its also 4k and hdr. I've set it up to auto switch hdmi when a connected device is turned on which is ace! It even works with my hdmi splitter connecting 3 different devices. My mum has a Samsung that cost 3x as much. The refresh rate does make a difference on higher spec tvs and id say her tv has a better picture. My mums Samsung almost looks fake in a way or too real. Also the remote I got works oob with my shield which was a nice surprise. Hope this helps someone!

Haven't got an aerial so never used that part. Haven't seen it through HDMI in the month I've had the 65". Pretty sure there is no aspect ratio button on the remote control.

Thanks, it's something I find really bizarre that there isn't some.kind of adjustment on the remote. There is an aspect ratio toggle in the menu but I usually have it set to auto.

The aspect ratio option only seems to be available to me on a 1080p HDMI source. Greyed out on a 4K fire stick and all of the built in apps.
I did encounter some weird bug the first (and only) time I used freeview play. The set appeared to hang on the main menu as I backed out. Just as I was about to turn it off at the wall, it became responsive.

Seeing as I'm only using a PS4 and fire stick, I guess I'm less likely to experience issues. The remote only gets used to switch HDMI inputs, change the picture to cinema night when it's dark, and set a sleep timer.

The TV did have an update at some point in the last couple of weeks and it hasn't done it since, so hopefully it's sorted, probably shouldn't have said that.

It's never done it whilst using anything other than the guide on Freeview, but it did affect the inputs once it had happened. I remembered seeing the setting for aspect in the menu but the last time I checked it was greyed out and I couldn't figure out why, so yes I think it's only available for certain resolutions.

Thanks for the help anyway.

That same update seemed to fix the hiss / crackle on the built in speakers at low volume.
Ah I'm with you on the HDMI part now. Once it happened on the guide, it wouldn't go away.

No worries, always good to hear of someone else's experience with dodgy software

I had a £1500 Sony android TV before this. The software was absolutely terrible and wasn't fit for use. So many bugs and it would crash and reboot itself at least three times a week. Never again...

I always hear bad stuff about Android TV so try to avoid that where possible, although the in-laws have a Sony Android TV and it seems good when I have used it.

I usually go with LG for TVs due mainly to the wide viewing angle IPS panels, but also because I really like WebOS as an easy to use platform, but one of the kids put his toy cars straight through two screens in as many months so I went with the cheapest at the desired size. With a screen protector. Going to be a while til I invest in a more expensive TV again, just happy I didn't get the OLED I had wanted!
