[Amazon.ca] Amazon Hisense 65Q9G- 65" Smart 4K QLED 120Hz Android TV $1598

Lowest price for this TV right now, $200 off. I have one, and I highly recommend it.

Same price at Costco and Visions. I'm assuming this is the new going price, and it should've been all along, considering this set is under $1000 US.
Hopefully we will see some actual sales coming up, and prices of $1200-$1300 around Black Friday

The Sony X900 at Best Buy/Costco seems the better deal.

This is one of the best TVs on the market below $2,000 at 65".

OLEDs beats it, but it keeps up with the Samsung Q80T / Q90T.

If it falls in price much further, it will be the Bargain High-End 65" TV of 2020. Ask @CFRTim.

I'm sure the SONY is also a great TV, and there is a lot of upcoming potential with firmware updates, especially for next gen gaming, but 32 local dimming zones vs 180 in the Hisense, really shows off in dark scenes.. I started watching the new Haunting series on Netflix in Dolby Vision; there are a lot of dark scenes in this show. WOW, the Hisense is just a beast

HDMI 2.0

This won't be able to utilize 120hz 4k / 2kHDR

Sony > Hisense all day, everyday.

I'd even take the TCL 6 series over this Hisense. Digital Trends agrees as well.

Same here looking at TCL 6 series 2020 for next gen consoles and keeping my Alienware AW3418DW 120Hz for First person shooters.

Runner up option for me if I want to spend more will be X900H.

Only OLED really satisfies this requirement at the next price level up. The LG CX 65" OLED is sitting at $2900.

Also, while you're correct, 4K60 input => 4K120 output looks smoother than 4K60 input => 4K60 output. The transition between frames is less perceptually jolting using a technique I don't fully understanding (haven't fully researched).

This TV is affordable enough, that I would be looking at options like Costco to buy this with warranty. Hisense quality assurance has improved leaps and bounds each year, but Costco's cheap and terrific warranty is an automatic buy just-in-case.

Pick your favorite review site, or most reliable one.
RTINGS seem to think otherwise
Or even better, see it for yourself

To note on the whole Hisense vs TCL thing, that also extends to whether you prefer Roku OS or Android TV. The H9G is running Android TV while TCL sets run Roku OS. Having used both Roku OS is a more polished and smoother experience, but Android TV is far more robust and expansive. I would personally take Android TV every time.

However with the H9G specifically there seems to be unconfirmed reports that even though the panel is 120Hz and takes 120Hz signals, frames are duplicated. That makes content essentially still run in 60Hz. I don't have a H9G to test for myself but just something to know.

In terms of "future proofing" Neither the H9G or the TCL 6 2020 have HDMI 2.1 ports. However 4k120Hz is not something reasonable to expect from any form of media for at least the next half decade (PS5 and Xbox Series X will not be powerful enough for it) so i wouldn't base purchasing decisions on that. The only "future proof" thing the TCL has over the H9G is HDMI eARC.

Damn. The last thing I need is more choices between TVs. Oh well, adding this to my list.
Can't decide between getting the Either saving a little money and getting the Q8G or TCL R535 or spending a little bit more and going wtih TCL R635, Sony X900h or now this. Want to upgrade my 1080p TV in time for the PS5 next month but can't decide between any of these.

If same price as Sony x900 why would anyone consider an off brand?

I see the upvotes flowing, let's introduce a little evidence.

In short, it's not even close, save a few select categories where Sony takes it. Sony's quality assurance is probably better, but that's readily solvable with a warranty purchase.

Firsthand experience confirms this, the Hisense H9G looks unquestionably better to my eyes. Not quite OLED good, but damn good, and up there with the Samsung Q80T / Q90T.

Great value for money. The H9G lacks some features for gaming (2.1, 4K @ 120Hz) and the digital trends review suggests some other compromises in terms of colour accuracy; on the plus side, also notes deep blacks, brightest whites.

Digital trends has disappointing hot takes, I stopped following them a while ago when I found their commentary inconsistent and subject to a play-to-audience syndrome.

RTings is more cut and dry. I'm also a fan of that Asian gentleman on YouTube who goes into extreme detail in his TV reviews, the name eludes me.

Anyone considering the Q9G should be aware of the persistent HDR red ghosting issue on many sets which Hisense are unable to repair. People have returned and replaced the TV numerous times with the same issue. Hisense Canada confirmed it is a hardware problem and can't be resolved in firmware. They also keep saying it's a batch issue but the TVs reported are from multiple factories with multiple manufacturing dates. All this in the AVS forum and Reddit. Some examples on YouTube too just look up H9G red ghosting.

If it weren't for this issue I'd have sprung on this set so you might want to try your luck and see if you get a good panel. It seems a lot of people don't even notice the issue until a month in, at which point they can't unsee it.

True, but Costco warranty, return, and exchange is bullet proof (when in stock). Still worth it, IMO.
