Hisense 85 U8G


Recommended Posts

After much research, procrastination and internal conflict I have just purchased a Hisense 85 U8G to replace my TCL 75P8M.

I was almost going to buy the Samsung 85Q60A but thought the Hisense the better value.

Paid $3,450 Delivered from JB HiFi

 

Just wondering if anyone has one and if so what settings are you running.

H Mate ,

Just an FYI , Aussie model U8G is different to US model.  Aus version has inferior panel and no hdmi 2.1 so can not do 120hz...If that is important to you. All glowing reviews I have seen are of US model. As long as you are aware and OK with no problem. It is also an IPS panel and not a VA panel like the previous Q8 .

Some good points about this situation from Gizmodo -_-

 

Hisense Overhauls Aussie Website Over HDMI 2.1 Issue And Model Numbers (gizmodo.com.au)

 

edit; Hisense still doesnt mention VA or IPS panel [in the interests of transparency] or peak nit values which make all the difference for UHD HDR10 ;DV etc .  Glad I have last years high nit VA model and most games are still 4k/60 when x box x etc finally turn up down here 🤷‍♂️

I do like the value of this tv. Besides the less than transparent marketing by Hisense my only other concern is about long term reliability. I am still rocking my 2012 Panasonic VT-50 plasma which had never missed a beat. If I get caught up on the complaints on Hisense FB page, reliability appears to be a concern. Pay for what you get maybe? 

 

By the way, Hisense mention on their FB page that only the U8G 75" has an IPS panel, the others are VA panels.

On the cusp of buying a new 55" (nothing bigger will fit available space) and the Hisense is a grand cheaper than the SamsungQN90 I'm lusting after. One thing that would definitely bother me is the Android system pop-up's that apparently keep appearing. You had an issue with this?

No, but what are these pop-ups?

 

I have a recent TCL and hate that Android system. Takes ages to turn on and just operable OS.

This version is leagues better and turns on in an instant.

 

HTH

The Australian Hisense U8G doesn't use Android so pop ups won't be a problem! 😁

Aha! you never know what the hell you're watching in these reviews on-line, must have been for the UK version.

 

In the end I am getting the more modest Sony XR55X90J and hoping it will bee what we need.
