Truthfully I haven't seen the hisense in real life (well I have but just in shop, picture was good, but only saw the picture in hd) the Samsung on the other hand I have seen my mate bought this TV and I bought ru7470 at the same time and this TV is awful, the picture is to dark and when you do brighten it up it just looks washed out, even my mate wishes he never got it, I would say it's okay for a bedroom TV but not for your living room, but if you are going from a old plasma to this then you would be happy. Personally I would go for the hisense out of the two. The Samsung ru 7100 picture is alot better then this for not much more, but I would take the hisense over that aswell

Also the viewing angles on this TV and the ru7100 and even the 7470 what I got are very poor, if I didn't live on my own then none of the 3 Samsung TVs would be much good. Basically if you have a family then I would avoid the 7020 the two Samsung's above it aswell the 7100 and the 7470 that I have got.

Thanks for your insightful response. Basically I bought the 50inch u7b last week and it's a cracking TV but I have some minor lightbleed and have read on avforums that it's quite common on this model. Wondering if I should keep it or get the Samsung as the price is within budget. Don't really fancy playing the panel lottery with hisense and potentially getting a worse set

To be fair on both the Samsung's that me and my mate got. The 7020 and 7470. They is no light bleed. They are well made I will give them that. The 7470 I got is a great TV apart from the viewing angle but like I said I live on my own so I'm okay with that. I also think you play the panel lottery with most TVs nowadays, on this 7020 they is no dimming as far as I am aware and you can't get it very bright without sacrificing the picture quality. Is the 7100 in your price range because it is a better TV, I don't think it is much more than this one but I can't be certain, I know they wasn't much of a price difference on black friday but since I bought my TV I have stopped checking. You did say you bought the hisense last week and that it's a cracking TV so you are obviously happy with it apart from the light bleed. if your not happy with the light bleed then I would exchange it for the same TV and if you have the same problem with the new one then think about changing to a different model. I personally think the 7020 is a step down and you will be disappointed. On the tv I have bought I haven't got any light bleed but I do have a little grey uniformity in the two top right corners but it's hardly noticeable, only see it on white background so I'm not exchanging it, I've done well with the panel I have got. My mates 7020 grey uniformity is more noticeable.
Oh come on, this is standard price for this model this "deal" is posted daily from different shops.

Cool I wanted the 7470 myself but was priced just over budget for me so settled on the uled. Thing is I could swap the hisense for a replacement as I got it from Richer Sounds and aftercare is second to none but the issue is I'd have to drop it back off to the store and then wait for the replacement to be delivered to my house which could be about a week I've been told which means using my old TV again lol hmmm decisions

39299228-i56uP.jpgHere's a little sample of the light bleed on the bottom corners. Pic not showing it too well. It's not always noticeable only on certain content and when room is dark.
That would annoy me no end because alot of movies are dark around the edges

I have a hisense tv, although it is a decent tv with a decent picture, for the price, samsung is a much more solid package. The hisense (one i got) comes with a cheap feeling and looking tv remote, which actually have lag, maybe polling rate issues. The "smart" feature is not that smart too.

You can't categorically say that about viewing angles on the Samsung R7 series as it depends on what panel they come with - IPS or VA. Sounds like you got lucky with a VA panel, since you don't need the viewing angles. VA panels produce a significantly better picture straight on. I bought a 7400 recently and it's an IPS panel, so good viewing angles but blacks are slightly washed out a bit, even from direct viewing. It's luck of the draw on Samsung TVs. I'd gladly swap my viewing angles for your VA panel, as would most people on AV Forums.

As for the cheaper Hisense TVs, I decided to steer clear after reading too many bad reviews from owners. If you can afford a Samsung 7400/70 then it will be a lot brighter than this Samsung model. I picked my 7400 up from Amazon Warehouse, Like New (basically unopened) for £300.

After my personal experience with a Hisense, I wouldn't touch another one.

The picture and sound were fine...when it worked. But the TV kept locking up, requiring for it to be unplugged to work again. The user interface was cumbersome and slow. The remote was also clicky and cheap feeling. It went back after 3 weeks, just couldn't put up with it.

Replaced with a bottom of the line Samsung (it was for a bedroom) which has pretty much the same picture and sound, but has never crashed, and with an extremely quick and reliable user interface.
Purchased this from Curry's two weeks ago with 10% cash back from TopCashback. For the money i am very happy with it. I was suprised at how sturdy the build is. Feels very solid. I use this as a bedroom tv and comparing it to my 3 year old LG 4K tv it will be staying there. Limited picture controls but i only needed changed a couple to get what i think is the best picture from the panel. HDR seems to be a very basic implimentation and there seems to be no indication of when its being used (compared to the popup i get on the LG). Watching animated series like Final space and 4k documentary's like One Strange Rock look pretty damn good at this price. Also happy with the speed of the OS, my LG is starting to show its age in this area. Speakers are also very acceptable.
Think I will get this TV for my mum as a Xmas present.. she still using a 10+ year old Sony non smart 43"... Will get the 50". Richer Sounds don't do delivery which is a shame so will have to be from Currys.

I have the 7100 and it's fantastic on everything apart from hdr I also have a soney xf90 which is a high end model and the Samsung is nearly as good for this price you won't get a better TV from one of the top producers of tv's if anybody is even comparing hisense to Samsung they are having a laugh 299 for this is a steal.

Don't forget you can tweak and fine tune your TVs image quality via this guide:

lifehacker.com/how…625
or
avforums.com/Pic…ct/

May take a good hour or so to do it but its night and day difference imo and you only have to do it once, just save your brightness numbers and any other settings via mobile camera or write them all down from TV and any device settings.

I still see bad back light bleed or incorrect colour settings like RGB, depth and wrong dynamic range set up on PC/Htpc or game consoles or cable/sat boxes and one incorrect setting and things look washed out or bleed badly on screen.

Can't stress the above point enough, if you got a 4K tv set it up right my 4K Samsung for example is set to
4K(3840x2160 native), 60hertz refresh rate, RGB mode, 32bit colour, 8bit colour with full dynamic range and this is just the pc settings! on the actual TV..... HDMI input 1 has to be set up with your right device IE PC or Game console or Sat box otherwise it won't give you the correct colours and options, then HDMI black levels and even HDMI UDH need to be enabled onto hdmi port 1.

Half the settings on AV devices including the TV are on default so you literally could be watching pants on screen.
