[Amazon.ca] Hisense 65" 4K ULED Android Smart Television 65U68G ($898)

Seems like this is $100 off regular price from most Canadian retailers:
Amazon
Best Buy
Visions
Costco
The Brick

Gets really good reviews on Rtings relative to anything else in it's price range:

If you don't need HDMI 2.1, 120Hz and eARC, then this is a pretty solid deal.

Hisense is killing it right now, if you don't mind the lack of HDMI 2.1 this is a great TV.
That's 30 minutes away, I'll be there in 10.

The Amazon price is actually $200 from their regular price.

HDMI 2.1 has more bandwidth than 2.0 and can support more features. However, this doesn't mean a TV with HDMI 2.1 supports all of the HDMI 2.1 capabilities. You'd have to look at little closer at the TV specifications and reviews to figure out if it has what you want.

Most people I talk to want HDMI 2.1 because it supports 4K at 120Hz, which pairs nice with the latest generation gaming consoles. For some games these consoles can render 120FPS.

Anyone have this TV ? I've read in multiple places that you cannot disable motion smoothing or the "soap opera" effect on this. Kinda a deal breaker for me.

I don't have the TV but I'm about to pull the trigger and I've done a bit of research on it. For 24p sources, this TV removes judder, so you will have some amount of "soap opera effect". This would mean the native video apps would suffer as well as any external video player connected that negotiates 24p with the TV. If you can force your external video player to output at 60Hz it should be fine as this TV doesn't remove judder on 24p content sent to it in a 60Hz signal.

It seems there is no way to enable/disable the motion smoothing or adjust the amount. I've read that setting the TV to "Theater Mode" will significantly reduce, if not eliminate, the motion smoothing.

Depends on what way too much is.

Another $400 more could get your the TCL R646 if you manage to snag one for the 3 minutes it comes in and out of stock:

Question the Fiber Audio Out. I have a Sound Bar not the HDMI option just Bluetooth / Fiber Cable. If I use Fiber out from TV to Sound Bar will that also pass every other device connected to the TV Via HDMI to the Sound Bar?

All things equal, should buy this at Costco, basic concierge included, but also for $60 I think you extend the warranty to 5 yrs, and don't forget, Costco's return policy!

Question: What is the 75" equivalent of this model? Is it the $1498 model? Does Rtings have ratings for all 4 of the Hisense 75" models on Amazon? The model numbers vs Rtings model numbers always confuse the heck out of me.

Seems like a really solid TV. Definitely considering purchasing it from Costco. Slap the 5 year warranty on it and were good to go.

I found it amusing that it's 2021 and I'm having to choose between the 70 year old 60hz standard or the "new" 120hz standard. We've come a long way baby :D

I'm curious how many of these 2021 models could be overclocked. Every manufacturer seems to have almost identical 60hz and 120hz models that share a lot of the same parts...
