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 - Description and Reviews
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.
For 2017, Hisense introduced some high-end models that aim to compete with the likes of Samsung and Sony.
Hisense's flagship LCD TV. Has a wide color gamut and full-array local dimming.
Similar to the H10D, but steps down to an edge-lit backlight.
Update to the highly popular H8C from 2016.
Hisense's cheapest announced model. Basic edge-lit 4k TV.
The first premium Roku TV. Supports Dolby Vision and only available in 75 inches. Has full-array local dimming.
The step-down Roku model. No Local dimming and no Dolby vision.
We've only reviewed one Hisense TV in 2016.
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.
