    Was going to post this myself. I'm so close to pulling the trigger. Are there really any downsides to this tv? I've found quite a few promising reviews but pretty much nothing on Whirlpool or Youtube, which is my only concern. Haven't seen it in person either.

    edit: I've decided to get it. Will be an interesting experience as my current TV is old and fairly crappy.

      Checked rtings?

    •  

      I have the 75" P5, not the oled but this is my second Hisense tv. My first one is still going and I've had it for over 8 years and havent had an issue. But if I was you I'd get something bigger than a 55"

    •  

      The panel is almost certainly an LG, and could be a last season make.

      The Big 4 (Sony, LG, Panasonic, Samsung (LCD))will likely have better processing than the Hisense, and there could be some uncertainty over how bright this model gets; relevant for HDR.

      But, provided it’s cheap enough (comparatively) with an alternative from the big 4, then it’s probably a reasonable enough choice, however in the absence of any benchmarked tests it’s hard to know with complete certainty how it will perform under all circumstances, such as input lag, motion clarity, HDR performance etc.

      Sorry, I know that doesn’t help a whole lot, but it’s hard without it being tested (with standardised result info) unfortunately.

      That’s my thoughts anyway.

        Where did U get the information this is a lg panel?

          Who else in the world makes consumer TV OLED panels?

        •  

          As AlexF has said there the only manufacturer who is really making large screen OLED panels at the moment.

          Other manufacturers buy the panels from LG, and then build their own bezels, and software.

        how bright this model gets; relevant for HDR.

        not just relevant but critical for HDR to have relevance - max brightness over 10% and 5% of screen.

  • +6 votes

    Brightness is the worst of any OLED which is already not the best. Plus it has poor motion with lots of stutter. Other than that it should be fine, like the rest of them.

    For what its worth Choice magazine recommended this TV in their latest online TV reviews (17/04/19).They gave it a score of 76/100. Bad points they mentioned were 4K picture -a little dark , slight motion artefacting.Sound -some cabinet vibration & sport 1080i a little noisy .

    • +2 votes

      The only issue I have with Choice, and this is only relevant for some years ago so things could well have changed now, however they at one point were highly recommending poor performing base model Samsung LCD over some obviously better performing (benchmarked results from multiple other reviewers) LCD TV’s. They take other things into account, like easy of use, and so perhaps because these other models required tweaking to get a decent picture, that played a part in their review decision, but all the same I thought it was a bit strange.

      • +1 vote

        I'm a tech guy, and I never agree with what they have to say about tech.

        They speak for 'normies', where ease of use means more than something like input lag, for example.

        I doubt they have AV professionals working for them that rigorously tests every aspect of a TV. I wouldn't even be surprised if they just tested them with out of box settings, which no one should ever use.

        •  

          That was my conclusion also. It struck me that it was likely that out of box settings, how easy the menu might be to use etc were strong criterion in their view. It should probably be said that they have a fair, and reasonable enough point too, that many folks aren’t interested in either having their TV professionally calibrated, or deep diving into obscure menu’s, but all the same I also think that such should be explained to the reader, which from memory (but, things could have changed) that wasn’t the case.

          I’m not knocking Choice, they make a good publication in general I feel, and I feel that for many other areas, such as white goods, or homewares, they have a level eye, and write a fair assessment.

          Also not suggesting you’re knocking them either BradH13.

          •  

            @Jawanzar: I agree with most of what you're saying but I think people do want a calibrated image as that is a major determinant of image quality.

            they have a fair, and reasonable enough point too, that many folks aren’t interested in either having their TV professionally calibrated

            • +1 vote

              @Diji1: Certainly some people do want a calibrated panel, absolutely I agree, but honestly (and, I of course could be wrong), I would reckon that generally a large proportion of customers just buy a TV, turn it on, and use pre-sets for the most part. I think that a large factor here is that people just don’t know that the picture can be calibrated, or know of professionals that offer the service. If folks were told at point of sale, to get their TV calibrated they’d be aware and interested of the service more so.

              IDK, that’s just my thoughts.

    Would burn in issues be something to worry about? I know it's a possibility but I saw a comment somewhere about it being first generation and how that's apparently a really bad thing? I haven't spent a lot of time researching OLED before as it's normally out of the price I'd be willing to pay at the moment so I don't know a great deal about it. If not the OLED, are there any other TVs on the Bing Lee sale that people would recommend around the same price range?

    • +2 votes

      Generally yeah burn in is an issue. If you're a super heavy console gamer, maybe not the best option? Could be wrong but I'd suggest double checking at least.

      •  

        Cheers. I talked myself out of it last second. Wish there were more reviews of the TV and I know I'd be worried about the burn in down the track, so clearly not for me after all.

      •  

        Yea if you do 5+ hours a day with no cutscenes etc then for sure.

      LG have higher burn in ratio because they're panels are brighter. The others are slightly dimmer which reduces the risk a little more (although the new Panasonic models are supposed to be higher brightness than LG in 2019). I got burn in within 3 weeks, two years ago on my OLED. They are getting better with that year by year but I would still try to use it as home theatre only and don't pause or have static logos. Unless it happens within the first 30 days you won't be able to return it because of burn in, it's part of the disclaimer. Only LED TV's that I would recommend would be Sony X9000F or Samsung Q8FN. All the others are nowhere near as good for HDR, brightness and local dimming which gives you great blacks.

      •  

        Aren't all panels made by lg?

        • +1 vote

          Yes they are but manufacturers can limit and add things to the panel. So Sony implements better motion to reduce stutter and a better black frame insertion which also reduces brightness. Higher the brightness in a specific area, the higher the chance of burn in from a static image. LG has more saturated colours but worse gradients. Sony has more accurate colours and fantastic gradients. Many things companies can do to a panel for better or worse.

      •  

        Basically, IPS needs to have full array local dimming to do HDR in the same ballpark as OLED. I think IPS looks more realistic than OLED but adding FALD adds a lot to manufacturing cost.

  •  

    Amazing deal. Don't listen to the negative comments. I have an LG B8 and got it for $1500 but would have bought this for this price. Unbelievable deal.

    I think the reason that it's not as bright and a bit worse with motion is that it uses the 2017 LG panel rather than 2018.

  • +1 vote

    Have this TV. This price is a steal.
    Yes, motion can be a little blurry. No idea what people are talking about in terms of brightness though.

    Sure, you can probably get a brighter set… But by the time you have this set up in your living room, you're not looking at 12 tvs side by side as in a shop. You won't know what 'bright' is or isn't…

    If you need a tele and find a better one at this price, buy it. If not, consider this one long and hard - if this were available to QLDers, I'd think about getting a second at this price!

    •  

      Good deal, it is darker but it is perfect for living room at night with a room with dimmed light setting.

    •  

      No idea what people are talking about in terms of brightness though.

      OLEDs are often not recommended for brightly lit areas because they have lower brightness than backlit panels.

      •  

        OLED TVs generally perform better in brighter rooms because of less reflection

        •  

          Have to disagree. Picture will look too dim on an OLED in a bright room.

          Panel with 1000+ nits brightness (preferable QLED) is needed for a bright room for optimum HDR performance. Some TV's do come with anti-glare coating to minimise reflections.

    shxxxxxxxxttttt!!!

      Any time Bing Lee ebay do a sale, delivery for tvs is generally limited to Sydney metro, but there are ways around this if you can click and collect

      1) change your ebay address to a random Sydney address (the postcode I’ve used with success is 2213)
      2) items should now appear that you couldn’t see before
      3) add to cart (I have sometimes gotten an error at this point saying there’s a problem cause they can’t deliver and yet it still stays in cart)
      4) proceed to checkout and choose click and collect
      5) search for your store and select it
      6) pay and enjoy

      I tested this yesterday with this tv and the b8 for my local store in Canberra and it would have worked, I just didn’t pull the trigger

      Hopefully it’ll work for you next time and to be honest I’d be surprised if that’s in the distant future. These tvs have already gone from over $2k to 1.5 since what, January? I’m sure you’ll get one at this price sooner rather than later. I’ll keep an eye out for you and Private message you if I see anything.

      •  

        Wouldn't they just cancel the order?

        •  

          I suppose it’s possible but at least it’s something to try. I mean they do want to sell products right? I get the feeling this is more about them not wanting to post interstate over not wanting to allow click and collect interstate and their setup is just a bit borked.

          I based this process on this comment someone left me in a previous thread

          https://www.ozbargain.com.au/comment/6982205/redir

      Can’t seem to private message you

      It’s not 20% but there’s the 7% ebay code PRESS which takes it to
      $1390.35

      Then shopback cash rewards is 10% (off pre GST) a further $125.13 back I think?

      $1265.22 total?

    Great price! Even though it isn't as good as other OLED's, surely it would still be better than any LED at this price point.

  •  

    4K aside, how does this compare to the original LG OLED (EC930t)?

    •  

      I believe that was the 2nd Gen of LG OLED. I'd say the Hisense would compare very well. It's not quite as nice as the 2018 LG's, I'd guess probably closer to quality of the 2017 models, but hard to say because reviews generally don't compare to outdated models.

    Not sure how good this will be for gaming? any advice?

  •  

    I was looking at one of these in JB and it said it has a 3 Year Warranty. It wouldn't cover screen burn would it?
