Hisense 2017 Lineup

We've only reviewed one Hisense TV last year, the H8C. We're planning to review more of the range in 2017 including the new higher end models. We'll update this page as new models are announced throughout the year.

Compared to other brands

  • Good value. Hisense TVs we've tested have good picture quality at a lower price than their competitors.
  • Weak Smart OS. Opera TV is quite limited and not as fast as competing platforms, even from other budget brands.
  • Below average viewing angle. Hisense TVs have very drastic drops in picture quality at an angle.

Overall, Hisense TVs have good picture quality at a low price. That makes them good value for most use cases. Don't expect a very seamless Smart OS however.

Hisense's lineup is mostly budget oriented. They're starting to introduce more high-end models, but the bulk of their TVs are aimed at the low-price market.

The H8C has good picture quality and a nice feature set at a low price.

Conclusion

Hisense is a growing brand. They've shown to provide a competitive product in the mid-range sector and are looking to expand in other price ranges. Our sample is pretty small, but their TVs tend to be at feature parity with competing products that are quite often quite a lot more expensive. They aren't without flaws, however. Their smart system is a definite weakness compared to Samsung, TCL or Sony.
