Why create this thread?

This units have been going out of stock periodically and restocking discretely, and for good reason.

The Q7G is like the much lauded Q8G, and is equivalent to or superior to the TCL 6-Series (2018), depending on use-case. The Q7G is notably superior in Gaming and PC Monitor use, with HDR performance that is very respectable.

RTings Review of H8G (Similar to H7G): Mixed Score of 7.8

The Q9G is a game changer in my view, it destroys everything in the QLED and VA space right up to the comparable Samsung Q80T (a largely comparable panel). It beats the Sony X900H clearly, per RTings, and rests one notch below OLED performance (costing close to $3,000 at 65"). This panel is all things, a great HDR experience, a very strong cinematic movie experience, great for TV shows, and an excellent Gaming and PC Monitor. As with all VAs, it's viewing angles will probably be slightly inferior to the OLED and IPS panels.

RTings Review of H9G: Mixed Score of 8.4

For context, the crowned king, the CX OLED, scores 8.8, within spitting distance of the H9G.

Buyer's Protection

Buy Costco's Bulletproof 5-Year warranty when you opt for either TV.

Options: Buy, Price Match, Hold, Return

Buy and hold, banking on the (minimum) 30-day price match opportunity. Likewise, bank on the more-than 90-day extended return policy, running to the end of January 2021 (holiday season extension). This gives you plenty of time to shop the market for a better deal, or fall in love with the Hisense.

Recommendation

My recommendation is to buy either product with Costco warranty and avoid a potential run on these items, and eventual stock out. Upon a future discount, you can casually phone in the price match, and carry on with your day.

Right now, the H9G is seemingly the more attractive buy, as there's a lot of competition in the H7G's performance range. The H9G looks at be $100 off as well, as it's currently on sale at Costco.

I also say that because the H9G's warranty is extremely affordable compared to equivalent third party warranty with purchase (e.g. Best Buy, Visions, etc.), it's a no-brainer.

I would rather pay $1600 + $100 (5-Years Comprehensive) = $1700.

The same warranty elsewhere is upwards of $300 or more (e.g. BestBuy does $300 for 4 Years Only).

Putting the same value proposition at $1400 + $300 = $1700. BestBuy also only provides a store credit rather than a cheque if the TV cannot be affordably repaired.

From above, you're looking at a $1400 price before this TV becomes comparably affordable from third party retailers.

Speaks to Costco's great customer service.

I've had the Hisense H9G 65" for a day in my house (bought refurb from Factory direct and returned due to scratches) and I can confirm it's a noticeably better TV than the Sony 900H, which I ended buying after. The colours, blacks, brightness everything looked better to my eyes, even though 900H is a great TV too.

However, I only payed $1,399 for the Sony at Best Buy and I wouldn't pay more than that for Hisense. I'm OK with the standard 1 year warranty, I don't normally purchase extended.

There is no 75-inch version of the 9G?

People realize that Costco warranty is only valid if you have a valid membership. Not everyone keeps there membership every year.

Son is very happy w 55" Q7G after we calibrated it with settings found online, with the 5 yr warranty we think it was a great buy, for him his first tv so he is happy and we have price protection for BF. Visions gave me a $954 offer on the Q9G in 55" which was solid

Talked to a Costco employee on live chat messenger, they said that you can cancel your membership and the warranty is still good, but you need to reactivate it if you ever needed to use the warranty.
Mostly good news.

I never considered people cancel their Costco memberships, my apologies.

Have you seen anything in the Q80 or Q9G range?

I haven't seen a Q9G in 75 inch. The Q80 is way out of my price range. Looking to spend around $1600.

A Q9G doesn't exist at 75", at least not in Canada.

I would much rather you get a Q8G 75", which was on price error for $1100-ish on Amazon.ca a week or two ago (see Expired Deals).

Otherwise you'll pay multiple thousands for something like a Q9G at 75".

Right now, the Hisense 75" Q8G is $1665 with Prime Shipping.
https://www.amazon.ca/Hisense-75Q8G-And ... 083SC5ZD1/

That's $135 off list price.

Will we see the price error price again? Doubtful, that was a flash in the pan. We may see additional discounts however.

I'm comfortable recommending the H8G if you demand the additional screen size.

Just have to say it, while the Q9G is a great TV many people (myself included) are having red ghosting issues with HDR content. Once you notice it, it’s hard to unnotice it and really kills the experience. Even my girlfriend was able to see it, which says something. I’m returning my set and going for either the TCL 6 series or Sony x900h.
