Ah I see that now... but wow, 50% more? I'm pretty sure that it'll be much cheaper at BB when released.

Alright I finally got around to hooking up my laptop.
Brief summary is that the image is stunning. Sharpest on any TV or projector I've ever connected to.

First the downer... my PC doesn't support 4:4:4 output. (Dual 755M SLI'd in laptop)
It does output 4k at 60Hz. I had to disable my laptop monitor since it didn't support it.
You can see in attached pictures what it looked like. I did take one with a color test image... it looks better than I expected without 4:4:4 support. **it looks better than this image shows. While I wouldn't say the last couple of rows are perfect, they are completely legible.
This will definitely do a fine job come fantasy football draft board time.

So I am just curious, can anybody speak for the motion blur and how gaming performs on these? (would be console gaming)

I didn't see any light blooming either when running the AVS pattern test "nothing" but overall the blacklevels on ALL the content I've watched is great. I have noticed a few times from shows from cable the compression and pixelation is an issue but I think its because of the cable trying to compress I guess. All 4k content or even HD movies I haven't seen this at all. I think your gonna have issues with the 4.4.4. I have seen allot of people complaining about the same quote from the previous model H7 50inch hopefully not but no matter what graphics card they through at it they couldn't get above 4.2.4 some saying rolling back there driver would allow 4.4.4. which was strange but they said it worked.

Those last settings that I sent couple days ago though I haven't changed since and its great overall cable, blu ray and apps only thing I adjust is my backlight depending on day or night thats it. Thankfully I found good setting bc I was messing with it for hours everyday. How is your's looking


The H7 looks very poor compared to the H8.

Are you sure the quick brown fox image is at 4K60 444?. That chipset (755m) is only HDMI 1.4a. You need HDMI 2.0 to dot that. You can do 4K30 444 or 4K60 420. So I don't really know what you are claiming here.

BTW, I never heard back from 2nd level Hisense on 4K60 444 support.

The 50 inch is $599 retail and the 55 inch is $699 so right now Amazon is price gouging the 55H8C. They did the same thing with the 50 inch before it was released by Best Buy:

Right, I acknowledged that it wasn't 4k60 444. It is 4k60 420 ... and my point was that at 4k60, even not 4:4:4, it looks damn sharp. And my reason for posting the test image was to display that. The claim that I've read is that if you don't support 4:4:4 that the bottom lines won't be legible... mine were pretty dang clear.
So point being if you want to use this as a PC monitor or production monitor, you won't be missing 4:4:4 because it's very sharp even without it even if it isn't supported.

I completely concur with this statement. I am going to be buying this tv soon as a monitor for my laptop at work. I hooked up my hdmi (1.4b) to the TV on the showroom floor, cut the laptop screen off and placed into extend mode only. Even at 30hz it is extremely sharp. At least as sharp as the Sony 49x830c. I have great confidence in this TV as a PC monitor for workflow output.

I have a very specific use case. I run a couple browser windows for stock portfolio/trading. I have various other windows, and most importantly I run CNBC in either a JRiver, or WMC window simultaneously.

If you run 30HZ you drop half the TV frames. TV is unwatchable at 30P. Running at 1080P cause the TV to scale and that TV does not scale well. I just felt it was important that people needing 4K60 444 not be confused by your post. I think you cleared it up.

Interesting, so this is with a TV tuner card or input?
What if you ran at 24P?

Live HD comes in two flavors 1080i which is 60 half frames at 60 Hz, more precisely 59.94 Hz. 720P is 60 full frames at 59.94.

In either case the only way to play the frames at 30 fps (available allotted time) means you have to drop half the frames. Even playing in 60 Hz is messy. You need the exact timing of 59.94. For 24p you need to run the display at 23.97 Hz. You will find these exact timings in the Nvidia control panel. I have a Nvidia Shield and I can select to run it at 4K 59.94 if I run at 4K 60 you will see an annoying skip every couple of minutes.

It does not matter what the source device, it needs to match the frequency of the content. People are mostly unaware of this because the cable box or ATSC tuner and the TV do this negotiation automatically. You do find where some cheap set top box can only send either 1080i or 720P. Which means you choose 720 and that workshe ok for 720 but 1080i is a mess. Or the opposite where 1080i and that's good but 720 looses half the frames.

A couple other scenarios, the set top box has crummy deinterlacing and 1080i is converted 1080P but it is a mess. Some Tivos allow for sending the native Rez and frame rate to the TV without altering. If anywhere along the cadence is improperly processed (scaled or converted) it is basically damaged goods. Even a good upscale of 720P to 1080P will loose some potential quality when the 4K tv scales it again.

Ideally, you only want to scale once, hopefully. Remember any deinterlacing must be done before the frame is scaled.

Yeah best TV's I found in the Cheaper but Great TV for Gaming price range is Vizio. Laste Years models are great especially the M Series 4k 2015 not 2016. But the Color Sat and Overall Pic is better on this HIsense H8 so its a trade off unless your just using it for a monitor or gaming monitor.

No, but it is not in the same league with the KU7000. The Hisense can't fairly be compared to the KS8000.


You should read the rtings.com review of the KS8000/8500. Brightness, sharpeness, motion, color gamut, calibration controls, caliber of HDR, , app support on an on the KS is day and night better than the H8C.

Yeah I originally started looking a few months back and got interested in the m65 2015 model, until I saw the 2016 P and M. I have been holding out on more details and reviews of the new M but so far nothing really. I may just wait until the P55 goes back down towards a $1k and bite.

But who knows, im sure they could always use firmware updates to get the tv to perform better under game mode if it is supposed to.

If its just like the philips BDM4065 but 55" it will be just fine.

The BDM4065 was the first 4k screen i got and it is great for 4k videos and games and looks crisp (it does have minor flaws that would upset a princess).

So im looking at a 55" computer monitor that is low cost, sharp text on the desktop, and ordinary gaming at 60fps (seriously, been playing games since 1983 so the marketing hype can piss off).

Currently using a Sony Bravia W series for main desktop monitor and games, does the job fine (otherwise would not be using it as the main screen).

So this hisense series is worth looking into.

Attached pic is example of how i use the TV as a monitor (old configuration, new config has the BDM4065 mounted above).

I treat all reviews with healthy skepticism. (I've owned excellent products with poor Internet reviews and v.v.). The Hisense 8 PQ, at half the price of the Samsung, looked fairly close to the KS8000 and didn't have the annoying reflective screen of the Samsung. The Hisense sound seemed richer also and comes with a four year manufacturers in home warranty.

I don't own a KS8000, so this week will set up the Hisense next to one of my Samsung HU8550s and compare.

I have had the H8C here on my desk for several 8 hour days. I even got the color meter on it. I know exactly what it. And what isn't. It is not remotely competitive with the KS8000 which is an SUHD. As you pointed out the Samsng is more than twice the price.


For a super budget display the Hisense has it merits. I had it on my desk and its limitation were direct in my face. I replaced it with a superior display in just about every way the KU7000. The KS models all have moth eye. Even my KU has less reflection than the Hisense in my room and it doesn't have the moth eye coating that Samsung uses on its higher models..


The H8C can be calibrated to have good color accuracy (see Vapormodels settings). So REC 709 content can have good color. Color accuracy when calibrated is to be expected.


Every one is entitled to their own opinion. But why ask for input if you are going to dismiss it out of hand? I am not down on this display. I like it and I could recommend one to the right buyer. But comparing it to a KS Samsung is kind of silly.


I will be the first to check out the 2017 models from Hisense next year. My wife will need to a 4K display for her desk in the future.

I will be the first to check out the 2017 models from Hisense next year. My wife will need to a 4K display for her desk in the future.

Not dismissing anything nor anyone, just healthy skepticism.

Is that a benefit or a problem ? Which set has the best ARNF ? Second best ? The KS8000 screen is too glossy.

I agree. All the "high end" Samsung screens have awesome colors... achieved through a glossy screen. Not worth it. Picks up every light in the area and makes the TV itself distracting.

But who knows, im sure they could always use firmware updates to get the tv to perform better under game mode if it is supposed to.
Yeah the H8 is really a good tv no s... I have had few tv's over the years wouldn't steer you wrong. But you NEED to calibrate it first. Hell its $499 at best buy I mean yes guys there are tv's out there that are a s... ton better but there not $499.00 or even some 1k sets are not as good. Now I don't know how long this thing will last even though there supposedly a 4 year warranty which is ridiculous if the warranty holds up in the future. Like I said before Cable tv or OTA will differ depending on the feed your giving it. IE News, HBO movie channels, Sports, of course all being in HD. I don't game that much anymore so can't speak to the 4:4:4 or using as a monitor for PC latency could be tad slow but probably not the greatest for FPS. I have a pretty bad a.. projector home theater set up for this in the bedroom. The Vizio's from last year especially the M' series 4k is a great screen. The New Vizio 2016 P,M models are allot better in black levels inky colors, contrast ratios especially the P series from what I've seen there are a few reviews on the Tube. But after using controllers for so long I can't get past the Android tablet or your phone app which i heard sux for all functions of the tv (monitor). But I guess for some that could be a big plus since technology is changing fast. I don't really get any glare day or night on this tv but I'm not using it upclose as a monitor. Sitting about 5-6 feet back.
I have been noticing on Cable some compression blocking issues on a few shows but hey until they catch up with 4k boxes this will continue to be an issue. On 4k video Blu Ray Youtube Even Netflix Nothing is noticed just Clean.

There will be a few auto updates on the Hisense Models this year from what I'm seeing.
