expired Hisense M7000UWG 65" ULED HDR Smart LED LCD TV - $1598 + Delivery or Free Pickup @ JB Hi-Fi

720

Good reviews on the internet. I was in the store the other day comparing other 65" models under $2k range from LG, Sony, Samsung and Panasonic. This TV was on par or even better when compared to few models from competitors which doesn't have the latest bells and whistles like the local dimming, HDR, 8bit/10 bit, wide colour gamut, etc etc. With the dropped price, I guess this TV will stand on top considering the value for money.

This TV also comes with 3 year in house warranty, which I haven't seen with any of it's competitors.

    It's not using Android OS so you can't install kodi and YouTube?

  •  

    Our Bauhn 65" TV from Aldi has started flickering so need to return it.

    Now deciding between this Hisense and:

    Sony X7500D
    LG 65UH652T
    Samsung KU6000

  •  

    On the fence, this or the 75 inch model? Viewing distance will be 6m.

    • +1 vote

      I would go with 75".

      I have a 75" in the bedroom. Viewing distance is like 3 to 4 meters. Never felt like I am too close.

    •  

      You HAVE to buy the 75" for that distance, in fact you need a much larger display.

      Put it this way, 2.8-2.9m is the ideal distance for 1080p on a 70" TV.

    • +3 votes

      At 6m you should have a 148" screen. I think you should be looking at either a projector or a re-arrangement of your living room.

    •  

      6metres, Can you go a projector?

      •  

        I don't think so, the living room is a half octagonal shape (not sure what you call it) with windows all around. Might get the 75" tv, beats my current old 46" tv.

  •  

    Ahhhh so tempted. The prices of the TVs in the M7000 range just keep getting better.
    I read though that the 70" model is actually the best out of this range. I have no idea why Hisense would put different spec'd TVs in the same range (isn't that the point of a range?), but the 70" apparently is the only backlit one, where as the others are edge lit. Also, the 70" has like 500ish local dimming zones where the others have 16. But at the end of the day, this price is great, and the TV looks great, so I guess that is all that matters.

    Also, I think these don't have 10bit panels, is that correct? That is one reason I am thinking of waiting for this years series. If a panel is 8bit, how can it have HDR? I thought the whole selling point of HDR was more colours?

  •  

    Need an upgrade from from my 5+ year old 42" and thinking this may be the one. Just need to convince my wife now

  •  

    For anyone looking for a 55" instead, recommend the LG

    Also, you should be able to price beat with Good Guys for the Hisense.

    •  

      Why would you recommend the LG over the Hisense in the 55? (Genuine qn, not being sarcastic!)

      •  

        I've got one and the display is amazing when streaming 4K. Don't have DSE luckily…

        Also I have stuck with LG for my phones and have had a good experience. Sticking with a brand I know.

  •  

    For those who can't decide on this, Samsung, Sony, etc I'm pretty sure this comes with a 3 yr warranty while the others are 1 yr. That might help you make up your mind, in addition to the great reviews this model gets

    Just bought the 55" two weeks ago, these series 7 from Hisense are great

    If only my TV would break! Then the Mrs would let me buy a new one.

    •  

      Hammer helps

    •  

      Just unplug the power slightly so that I looks like its still connected and tell her it doesn't work. If she figures it out then you can make her feel like she is smarter than you. Win win.

  •  

    Have had this TV operating for 2 months. It's awesome! My only minor annoyance is the somewhat slow start up time from pressing the 'on' button on the remote, but build quality, user interface, config options and most of all picture quality are outstanding. It's also pretty slim so wall mounting would look great I imagine (I'm using the stand at present). The netflix and youtube buttons on the remote are very handy (especially for the wife and kids), I was able to get Plex working to stream from the PC in the next room and the sound is actually pretty decent. Casting from iphone etc is also hassle free.

    Would happily buy this TV again. :)

  •  

    Only 60Hz and VA panel, no thanks.
    Waiting on all the 2016 Sony's flagship range with IPS and 120Hz to drop in price since the new 2017 models shown off at CES2017 are coming out around the corner.

    I own this model in the 70" form and came from a series 8 Samsung. Feel free to ask me any questions you have.

    My thoughts quickly. Menu and interface are really well thought out and pleasant to use. The YouTube and Netflix quick access buttons on the remote are really handy. When viewing HDR content I am blown away. Gaming is really decent with great response time. TV is insanely heavy but feels so premium. Don't worry about brand or quality they have been around long enough now to prove they are here to stay and with a 3 year in home replacement warranty as standard you can rest easy.

        I think the colour toning is actually better on the Hisense and the Samsung app store is an absolute pain in the arse. That's being generous but the TV was a factory replacement because the original Samsung I had died 3 times under warranty. Would not buy another one with my own money to be honest. Part of the reason I went Hisense was the 3 year in home replacement warranty. The amazing picture quality and ease of use was just a bonus. Could not be happier with my purchase to be honest.

    Anyone know if the 55 inch M7000UWG has sold for under $1K yet? The 65 and 70 are just a tad too big for us.

    •  

      Picked mine up for $895 ($985 - $100 Amex Cashback) at Harvey Norman a week before Christmas.

      They price matched Good Guys $1,045 - $50 Eftpos Card.

        I have never seen the 55 inch hitting below $1000, are you sure you got the Series 7 TV

  •  

    I own the 65" m7000uwg and also spent a lot of time trying to compare models - very hard. Reviews do not give you the whole "picture", and you really cannot appreciate it until you have it set up in your own area (stores I went to either had it on a uhd content loop or did not have the remote available to change settings). I like the unit but I am on the fence about if I would buy it again.

    •  

      Why is that?

      •  

        Well, I am just nitpicking but I had to call Hisense and get an email with the upgraded firmware - and you need it for it to play UHD content (my unit would not do it on the stock firmware - through hdmi or USB. Over the air firmware updating does not work here in Australia (apparently). Works now, but it is not perfect (UHD content appears to take its toll on the processor…like it is struggling to buffer).
        If you are off centre, then there is a little 'washing out effect' occurring. However, generally the picture is very very good. You do need to tweak it heavily in the settings or the picture looks a little 'toon' like. Way too colour saturated (especially in the reds) just in standard mode.
        But I do not know if the other TV's in its price range exhibit the same issues - when you get them home. I also was told that it was 100hz (or 120hz) but it is generally pretty easy to tell if a set isn't - you notice the 'judder' when the end credits are going up the screen. This tv has that.

        •  

          Was that using 24fps content? It seems the TV can't display properly in 24Hz so you get pull down and judder.

          Also, every TV needs a bit of calibration.

    Hisense really seems to be an emerging star. I would in the past never consider spending thousands on anything other than your usual names for a telly but that's definitely all changed

    I remember reading somewhere that this tv doesn't have HDR over HDMI, is that still the case?

      I read on whirlpool forums that they've updated this now via a firmware update

    • +1 vote

      It does on 2 of the 4 hdmi ports. It also may need a firmware update to turn it on if its firmware is a bit out of date. Buying one now should hopefully mean they come with one of the later firmware versions already on it. But you never know.

    About to pull the trigger on this, quick someone stop me.. im going from a 32inch lcd samsung its like 10 years old…

    Its also worthwhile to note Hisense will not bring out firmware updates unless it absolutely has to. Any, out of minimum waranty tv's are automatically abandoned and if you ring help line you will be asked to buy another tv. That is my experience with a HD tv that plays SD channels fine but crashes on HD. I was told the tv works fine and a set top box or a new tv would remedy the problems I was experiencing. So just making you aware that Hisense business model is maximum sales minimum customer satisfaction. Which is potentially huge problem for a smart TV which will require frequent updates when youtube and the likes change how they do things.

    •  

      Does this also apply for the apps like YouTube n Netflix?

    • +5 votes

      It sounds like your TV doesn't have a MPEG-4 decoder for HD channels. There's nothing Hisense can do about this. Their advice is right - buy a new TV or a device with built-in tuner.

    •  

      HoracePinker what model hisense do you have?

    •  

      "…with a HD tv that plays SD channels fine but crashes on HD. I was told the tv works fine and a set top box or a new tv would remedy the problems I was experiencing…"

      Horace, if you have an older set that doesn't have the decoder for the broadcast HD channels, then that is the correct advice. You just need to buy a cheap Freeview box with HDMI, and you'll be able to watch over-the-air HD.

    •  

      It's up to the app vendor to update the apps on the store. My Hisense is getting almost weekly updates to YouTube etc. I also called them because I was having trouble getting HDR content to register and they sent me a Beta firmware they were working on it fixed the issue. So far my experience has been nothing but great!

  •  

    After reading the reviews below while researching what to buy, I was very impressed and almost bought this tv (65") just before xmas. JB however decided to dropped the price of the Samsung 8 Series 60" on xmas day down to $1995 and being a brandname b***h, I went with the Samsung! No regrets tbh, and the smart remote with voice activation on the Samsung is a nice bonus.

    Now this is $1598, I feel the Hisense is still a tv that needs be be given some serious consideration. 65" would have been way too big for my room anyway, so this also helps me sleep peacefully :)

      I was also tossing up between this Hisense and an 8 Series Samsung a couple of months ago. I would say this Hisense is about the same as a 7 Series Samsung. The 8 Series was a bit better and a decent amount brighter with HDR content. Ended up going with the 60" 8 Series.

      OldKing, Did you get a 60" Samsung 8 series from JB? Do you mean 50"? I thought only 60" models were only available from Bing Lee and Domayne (bricks and mortar stores anyway).

      •  

        Yeah got the 60" 8 Series from JB Hi-Fi. They were down from $3k to $2k and they did NOT last long at that price. Bought it online while rather intoxicated on Christmas Day evening for a click and collect a couple of days later. When I went in they had maybe 6 on the floor, when I left, the display was replaced with an LG as they'd sold out.

    Hi I was hoping that some TV tech buffs could offer some advice.

    I have a 10 year old Sony xbr which at the time was top of the range. https://www.cnet.com/products/sony-kdl-46xbr-bravia-46-lcd-t.... It still a great TV but I am keen to upgrade. Would this TV be that upgrade? The brightness fo the Sony is much higher (500) and the viewing angle is much wider on the sony. However give the number of year between them I'm sure I'm not comparing apples with apples….advice?

    • +1 vote

      Overall this tv will be a great upgrade. Its great value for money if that is one of your criteria you cant go wrong with the m7000 range when on special. However if you are only watching FTA and SD content you wont fully utilize the benefits of this TV and the difference in picture quality between your current TV and a larger 4k panel may be a backwards step. If your viewing habbits are mostly netflix and you can access the 4k content then you will be blown away.

    • +2 votes

      Mate, this is the exact upgrade I did. Love(d) the Sony Bravia, but the difference was very noticeable in changing to the Hisense. Do it. (See my comments above on the Hisense) ;)

  •  

    So how much does this TV weigh? I take it it's too heavy to mount on the wall?
