Hisense Ships Sharp 75″ 4K Ultra HD LED LCD TV


"Hisense revealed Monday that its Sharp Aquos-branded 75-inch LC-75N8000 4K smart TV is now shipping to retailers offering 4K Ultra HD resolution and support for high dynamic range (HDR).

The LC-75N8000U, which carries a $3,199.99 suggested retail price, is an edge-lit LED LCD TV with multi-zone local dimming and support for a wide color gamut. Other features include: AquoMotion motion smoothing technology based on backlight scanning methodology developed by Sharp.

Also included in the model is Sharp’s Revelation upscaler that enhances lower resolution content for display on the 4K Ultra HD screen.

Sound is enhanced using dbx-TV, which offers an immersive entertainment experience through a suite of audio enhancements.

The TV includes has built-in streaming media capability through a smart TV platform and has the ability to connect to external 4K media players as well.

This proprietary Sharp smart platform uses an intuitive tile-like interface, allowing viewers to stream content from Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, and YouTube, among others.

The 75N8000 will accept HDR metadata from both USB and HDMI input sources. It offers 1.07 billion colors; built-in 2×2 dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11ac; four HDMI inputs including, 2xHDMI 2.0a/HDCP 2.2, HDMI ARC, HDMI CEC and HDMI DVI.

NOTE

The TV is not yet listed on Hisense USA site. I also started 2016 Hisense H8C, H5C, H4C and H3C Entry Level series thread some of the models are already selling by Best Buy and Amazon since May and none are listed on Hisense USA home page, this must be the worst costumer support ever.

Wait for the 70 inch N8000, it has FALD and not the Edge lit junk.
I guess you mean the 70” Class LC-70N8100U: $2,299.99
or The Flagship 70” Class LC-70N9100U: $3,299.99 with Quantum Dot, same in the 65” Class LC-65N9000U: $2,999.99

My guess is the is Flagship 'Quantum Dot' models are going to be 'Ultra HD Premium' certified

HERE is the complete Hisense Sharp branded line up as announced at January 2016 CES

My problem is I would like buy something like the flagship models in 55" or 50" size, to use as PC monitor and gaming.
The Hisense/Sharp N7000U models in that size have very much downgraded specs compared to the larger models.

According to the article, the model number 70 inch N8000 with FALD. The flagship 70 inch N9000 has FALD and QDOT. The N8000 75 inch is edge lit.

The LC-75N8000 has been available in Canada for a while.

It has only 16 zones, and it is Edge Lit.

The LC-70N8100 will be FALD.

The LC-70N9100 will have 192 zones (and quantum dots). Will also be more expensive.

I do appreciate the response, but, do you have a source for this info (I'm seeing contradictions online.)
The slightly cheaper N8000 will also include HDR support. Depending on which size you pick, you will get either a full-array local dimming system or edge LED. All the N8000 models will features wide color gamut. See more specs in the table below.

The Multi-zone Local Dimming is Edge lit, not FALD.

I remember the N9100 being announced and being very interested in it since there were so few 70" sets announced for 2016. I can't recall exactly, but I thought it was on Sharp's website for a short time several months ago, but there's nothing there about it now, just the curved, 65" N9000. I wonder if they still plan on releasing it. I hope so--it would be good to see someone besides Vizio releasing FALD sets at lower price points. And although edge-lit, a 75" set with some local dimming along with HDR/WCG support for $3k could be a nice value, or at least help drive down prices on some other 75" sets. I'd guess it to be a VA panel, assuming the stated static contrast ration of 4000:1 is at all accurate. At that price point, the closest 2016 sets are the LG 75UH8500 and Sony 850D, both of which are edge-lit IPS, and the Sony doesn't have any dimming. The only thing I wonder about is if the refresh rate actually is 120Hz.

I couldn't find any source confirming or not, but with only 16 zones, I have to agree they have to be edge lit.
I agree that's likely, but not necessarily true: the 2016 Vizio E-series has a full array backlight, but only has 10-12 dimming zones.
