Lightbulb 2019 Hisense 55H8F ULED TV Review...

"The Picture is MUCH CLOSER to an OLED than it is to an LED TV, but at a far more affordable price" !

https://www.techradar.com/reviews/hi...5h8f-4k-hdr-tv



I can't wait until the Hisense XD ULED TV comes on the market in 2020!

Could this be the new GOLD-Standard in TV Technology ?

Can’t wait for the H9F next month with Quantum Dots and more Zones.

Well I'll be interested to see some reviews or see it in person somewhere. Sounds like it might be pretty awesome.

I hope they're not using IPS panels for the H9 series because I saw wide viewing angles when Best Buy had them listed.

The H8F also has wide viewing angles. In the reviews for the H8F, they say it also has wider then average viewing angles and they use VA panels. So I assume they may be using similar panel coating to that of Samsung and Sony to achieve those wider viewing angles (but don't quote me on that).

Wow that was an insanely great review for a $499 55” new H8F 17ms Gaming response time.
And well, high hopes for the 120Hz H9F with Quantum Dots and over 100 Zones.

Been contributing to the Vizio Q dot thread as these new class of mid range brighter, HDR, qdot TVs look very intersting. Looks like Hisense is releasing their next gen Qdot and FALD TVs ahead of Vizio and stealing their Thunder. Hisense bought the Sharp USA assets and should have better MFG and supply chains so hopefully they will have better quality and availability than Vizio. Looks like Hisense has a solid mid range offering that will give both Vizio and TCL a run for their money.



Only gaps in their offering are lack of 40/43" and 75"+ TV. I'm in the market for a 40/43" so still looking at Vizio but not liking the watered down specs of their GO M series models. Might go for a 50" H8F when more reviews of both come out. Also looking to upgrade a 75" around BF. Still think Hisense has a good strategy focusing on 50-65 which are the the high volume segments.

Looks as if Hisense is finally delivering the sets they have been showing at CES the past few years. Hopefully Best Buy will sell the H9 early like they did with H8. Maybe Hisense will pull a TCL and release a 75 later in the year.

Bought the 55” version to believe it or not replace my 55” Sony 800e cause the black levels absolutely sucked on it. Figured for $500 can’t go wrong if I didn’t like it I’ll return. Fortunately I am very impressed and the blacks are inky black. Very slim almost non existent bezel. 4K is amazing. Overall very happy with how much you get for short money.

It may offer comparable performance to more expensive competitors. But with an MSRP of $3,499.99 the 75" version is well beyond the reach of those with limited budgets. Typically those who have that much money to spend on a TV look to established premium brand names. It will be interesting to see how long it takes for a brand like Hisense with a reputation for low-end TVs to be able to attract customers with >$3,000 to spend on a TV.

Hisense said they will bring a 8K tv on the market for $2000 in 2020 !

The interesting one in my view is the $699 1000nits 55HF9. HDR for the masses, you know.

Yes same here, 8k and all of that is useless too me and too expensive for normal people. The H9F looks like a hitter and hopefully it has good reviews for it since I'm looking for TV's right now. I want to wait for 2020 for the whole HDMI 2.1 and being good for the PS5 but I have tons of backlog of games and movies I like to enjoy now and don't want to wait a whole year or so still..

The Hisense 50" H8F is now available at Best Buy: https://www.bestbuy.com/site/hisense...?skuId=6338832

Most likely going to order one in the next two or three days. Going to see if my local area gets them in stock so it doesn't have to be shipped from a long distance. Don't know the number of local dimming zones on the 50" though. The 65" has 60 zones and the 55" has 56 zones. I don't see the 50" having a lot less zones then the 55". But still the best price to performance available at this size and price point, nothing comes close.

According to Hisense the 50” has 32 zones

How is Hisense quality as far as panel lottery? Is it better than TCL?

@JessieBristol That's great news, and all those premium-like features for just $400, sounds like I'd be giving Hisense a chance for the first time ever! Will definitely get it around my next paycheck!
@mantiz And I bet even with just 32 zones it's still better than the Vizio M-series offering this year, not quite impressed with Vizio TVs this year as far as specs is concerned.

My current mancave room setup:
Vizio V436-G1 4K HDR TV | LG UBK90 4K Blu-ray player | Denon AVR-S740H AV Receiver (running 5.1.2 Dolby Atmos and DTS:X) | Xbox One X | Roku Ultra (2018 model)
