[Costco] Hisense Q7G 55'' 4K ULED TV $597 w/ FS

Don't flame me for this one because its not a sale price. But based on some research and endless discussions on the RFD tv forums, this looks to be such a promising TV at this price point.

Some features to note:

Full array local dimming (72 dimming zones)
Dolby Vision
Dolby Atmos
Great speakers (for a tv)
Chromecast built in
4 HDMI 2.0
Decently bright (enough for most people at 700 nts)
Modern design + cable management
Picture quality should be very similar to Q8G which has great reviews

This TV is not for you if you need a very bright tv or want to watch in a super bright space. Probably not for pro gamers either as the response time is average.

That being said, great value for money as Q8G is reviewed very well and the only difference between the two is WCG.

EDIT: Costco dropped their prices on this to match Walmart + still free shipping - great deal @$597.99!

If the interest on RFD is half as high as I think it is, this one should fly off the shelves lol

As someone who doesn't know anything about TVs, everytime i go to costco and look at the tvs, all my hisense, tcl, vizio tvs on display always look so dull and non-vibrant compared to the samsung, lgs, sonys etc. From what I am reading this seems to be a decent tv for the price, but am worried as the op does mention this is not a bright tv. Would this model be slightly brighter/more vibrant or would i be better off waiting for a deal on a samsung or something?

I’m wondering why anyone would go for this over the 2020 Q8G at visions for $11 more? I know Costco but with the 2 year visions warranty, wouldn’t that be a much better buy?

It’s actually $69 more after tax. For people in the market for a bargain TV, that 10% difference probably matters, but I’m with you.

This has been the debate on RFD for some time haha. Essentially, they're the same tv.

The 55 inch Q7G and Q8G are identical in every aspect except for one thing: Wide Colour Gamut (WCG); This was also confirmed by Hisense. For most people, you won't be able to tell the difference in colour between the two.

I agree on paper, for 11 dollars more, the Q8G is marginally better, but the Costco assurance sold me because I don't have any personal experience with Visions.

Similar - but different use cases.

6 series is much brighter so if you want a very bright tv, 6 series is better.

Q7G/Q8G have better grey uniformity and motion handling (aka sports).

Yup I posted that Visions Q8G deal but given the price difference and Costco factor, for the 55" I would actually go with this deal instead.

Has anyone downgraded in size before? I have a 65” value brand tv from like 5 years ago (Costco actually gave me my money back for the tv because of a warranty claim and I’ve been waiting to replace it, it still works and they never asked for it back, just some pixelated parts).

I’m looking at these hisense tvs and am trying to figure out if I should stay with 65” or save 300 bucks and go with the 55”. The I would say the sitting space to the tv is 8 to 10 feet away?

Will I feel like the 55” is a huge downgrade in size?

pretty good price and looks to be the 2020 model. The question is: will Android TV run as smoothly as Roku TV does on the TCL 4 or 6 series. Any benefits to having Android TV over Roku TV?
