Having exited the TV market for several years, I have no idea what "Hisense" is? Anyone speak about this company? Budget brand?

1) Google the name and see what comes up
www.google.ca

2) What brand is Hisense ? Is this brand any good?

Here you go https://letmegooglethat.com/?q=is+Hisen ... d+tv+brand


Now quick answer Yes they make some good stuff and some crap. This is there lower end tv but still decent for the price and if you dont want to spend much then sure its a good deal.

Yes they are a budget brand which is why you are getting a 75" smart 4k tv for that price. Having said that there isn't a review anywhere that gives this less than 4/5 so that might be something worth considering. HiSense has been trying to make a name for itself and is succeeding thus far. Same price at Visions with a bonus 2 year warranty and free shipping so you dont even have to get out of your seat to have it... I have the same TV in the 55" and find it to be well worth the money

Rtings gives this TV a 6.5/10 which isn't really good. That's a 3/5

Currently have the U78G not the A model. I am happy with the purchase so far. A few minor things I don't like otherwise for the past 2-3months I've had it, it has been great.
Before this I strictly stuck with Sony. Had 32inch that is still running after 10+ yrs and a 52inch K-model which just crapped the bed after 14yrs or so.
Not relevant I know but thought id share that I was willing to give Hisense a go after the many reviews and research I did prior to landing on a TV

We have a Hisense 55" TV & have been nothing but impressed so far. So much that we got another one for our gym.

One thing to note is that there are different operating systems with various Hisense TVs (Android TV, Roku & VIDAA).

If you go with a VIDAA & want to stream Disney+ then you'll have to also purchase a firestick or something because it's not compatible & over all quite limited. But Android TV is great & snappy. I can't speak to Roku cause I haven't tried it.

Hisense and TCL are Chinese. They are slowly becoming respected brands like how Samsung and LG did in mid 2000s. Remember there was a time people will buy a Sharp than a Samsung because people think Koreans brands are crap?

That's where Hisense and TCL are today. They have been good bang for the $ for the last 5-6 years and slowly coming up in picture quality in some top end models. Brand recognition may still take a few years and QA is still spotty as some people bought their high end stuff based on review and end up finding flaws.

If you want cheap panels, these brands are the only game in town before you start going even lower with RCA/Skyworth. LG and Samsung has cheapen a lot of their low end stuff still can't beat Chinese brands on price.

The problem today is for most eyes, the difference between a top end panel and a low end panel isn't that big. So most will pick Hisense and TCL and keep money in the pocket.

This screen is pretty large for $900. So if all you care is a large screen and little else, it's a good pick up. But don't be picky about slow refresh and crappy dimming/HDR performance tho. You are getting what you pay for.

TLDR, if I'm buying a low to mid end LG/Samsung/Sony, I may as well buy a low/mid tier Hisense/TCL equivalent and save a couple hundreds. If I'm going for the top end, I will stick with Korean/Japanese... for now.

There was some pretty bad QA issues with mine. Top frame was separating from screen and there was stuck pixels.

Best of the budget TV's. On the same level as TCL. So better than RCA or something like a Skyworth.

Sony, Samsung, LG, etc. are better, but a lot more expensive.

I have two Hisense TVs that I got for pretty cheap and I've been happy with them. No problems with them. Picture quality looks good to me. The last one I bought has build-in Roku which works well. So I'm a fan of the brand. Will these TVs last 10+ years? No idea. But so far, so good.

I have a Hisense 55" from 3 years ago and I am beyond impressed. Only one that I would say is better is Sony. This is way better than my LG. I suspect you will be really happy with the TV.

This particular model is an entry level budget model, but it's a good option for people who don't care about all the extra features. Hisense has made some of the best rated tvs with the lowest price points last year.

Ive got a 65", love it - I bought it a couple of years ago thanks to RFD. The panels on some apparently are Toshiba. The picture is great once calibrated properly. Its no OLED but it also was only ~600 bucks.
