Hisense U8G 55″ 4K Ultra HD HDR Android Smart TV – 2021 Model

Let’s start with a quick round up. This is the best all-round TV. Hands down. Movies, gaming, sports… it’ll handle anything you can throw at it and look great doing it (try not to actually throw stuff, it’s just a figure of speech). No surprise when it’s got 4K resolution, Quantum Dot Color, Dolby Vision HDR, 120Hz native panel, Full Array Local Dimming Zones, anti-glare panel and powerful 1,500 nit peak brightness. What does all that mean? It’s like gazing at the sun melting into the Mediterranean Sea from Ibiza’s coolest bars. But sitting on your couch. At home. Then for gaming, we added Variable Refresh rate, Auto Low Latency Mode and FreeSync Premium to make the most of the latest generation gaming platforms. Even if you don’t know what half this stuff means, one look at the picture and you’ll want it.

#1

Quantum Dot Wide Color Gamut

See over one billion shades. Quantum Dot produces purer, richer, more brilliant and accurate colors than a regular LED TV. We could get into how it works. But it’s a lot easier to say it makes every day look like the 4th of July.

#1

Dolby Vision • Dolby Atmos

Dolby Vision HDR picture and Dolby Atmos sound are cinema technology for your home. They provide amazing realism you can see and hear in every scene.

#1

Full Array Local Dimming

More local dimming zones means better contrast and more accurate color. With 132 local dimming zones, you’ll see darker darks and brighter brights.

#1

Up to 1500 nits Peak Brightness

The higher the nit rating, the brighter the screen. The average TV is 250-350 nits. Anything over 500 nits is extremely good. This is 1500 nits peak brightness giving you a picture that’s brighter, making HDR pop and perfectly lit in any light condition.

#1

Ultra Motion

Ultra Motion removes the digital ‘noise’ that can affect moving objects. Whether it’s a bird, a plane or the man of steel, everything you see is exceptionally clear. The 120Hz native refresh rate means smoother gaming with pictures that keep up with your play.

#1

IMAX Enhanced

It combines digitally remastered 4K HDR content and DTS audio technologies with the best consumer products and streaming platforms. Built for people who want a more premier, at-home experience.

#1

Game Mode Pro

HDMI 2.1 inputs recognize gaming sequences to automatically adjust settings for smooth, uninterrupted play. The automatic low-latency mode (ALLM), variable refresh rate (VRR) and FreeSync minimize input lag, screen jitter, and frame tearing. So your gaming looks sick even if you suck.

#1

Voice Remote

The backlit voice control makes controlling your TV easier. Open apps, turn the volume up or down, or search for your favorite shows using using your voice. Just press the Google Assistant button on your remote to talk to Google.

Hisense U8G 55" 4K Ultra HD HDR Android Smart TV - 2021 Model
PROS
  • Hisense U8G-series 4K UHD TV (65-inch-class, model 65U8G)
  • $1,499.00See Iton Amazon
  • The U8G is a great TV for the price, with excellent color, brightness, and image processing; plus, eARC support and a 120Hz refresh rate for gaming. Its traditional backlight is its one weakness; it just doesn't deliver the blacks we've seen from TV's using mini-LED backlights.
  • Pros
  • Excellent color and brightness
  • Top-notch image processing
  • 120Hz HDMI, plus eARC support
CONS
  • Cons
  • Older array backlighting can't compete with mini-LED technology
  • No fewer than six paid-placement buttons on the remote

    Way too many issues! Extremely laggy at times. Will freeze. Will not turn off at times. One of the HDMI’s came damaged. This is literally the first time I’ve ever lowered my review for a product on amazon. Please don’t buy this. I’m extremely disappointed.

    There are quite a few TVs at the 85in size that are far more expensive. Personally (even after lasik) I can’t tell he difference in pixelation. Most 4k TVs are relatively awesome. I custom built my bar in the basement, and needed a TV that fit exactly in the slot intended (see pics). And the TV didn’t disappoint. Colors are vibrant! A couple things I did learn is that you can’t use a Sanus bracket (even though this TV is about 115 pounds and Sanus supports upwards of 130lbs). The bracket in the back has to be exceptionally large. The other challenge I had is that my local cable provider has a streaming app that only works on LG, Samsung and Roku TVs. So I had to purchase a Roku separately, but that was rather my miss. TV looks awesome, especially at this price point.

    Love the monitor BUT the USB-C to USB-C cable stopped working after 5 uses. I purchased the monitor for portability but having to plug into an electrical outlet for power does not make this monitor easy to travel with. Dropped 2 stars for this reason. Sent an email to the seller and never heard back. There was no phone number for contact. Called Amazon and all they wanted to do was troubleshoot and not refund or replace.

    As a stock market operator some days I need to move from my office, but at the same time I need more than one monitor to see different assets (prices) and charts at the same time, among other info. The truth is that I didn’t know the existence of this kind of displays until a friend recommended them to me. I use it with my Macbook via HDMI and so far I have obtained a good result, I can work from a hotel or even in a cafe in the city. For portability, fast configuration and good design I will give it a 5. Only as a future recommendation to the manufacturer, would include touch screen.

    Don’t like because it can not be connected with wireless speakers

    This monitor is light, thin and bright. The image is high quality and I am pleased that it is quite bright and clear when powered directly off of my laptop (Lenovo ThinkPad X1). I also appreciate that it came with a variety of cables; I used the USB-C to USB-C connection. The order of connecting the cables matters, but was easy to figure out. I have to connect the USB-C cord to my laptop first, then the Z-Edge monitor, and it powers up and remembers the prior setting & configuration — this works roughly 80% of the time; every once in a while, the screen flickers and stays dark — as if it didn’t quite make the connection. This is easily addressed by unplugging and replugging the USB-C cord into the monitor. The monitor has speakers and the audio is about the same as you’d get from a mid-tier laptop (“okay” sound; not great, but certainly loud enough to hear). The foldable, magnetic cover is adequate as a cover, and so-so as a monitor stand. I purchased a separate, portable metal stand along with the monitor. Overall, very happy with the purchase.
