    holding out on a good 75" for under $1500

    I'm after a 75" but I haven't done much research.

    Hisense 75Q8 75" 4K Ultra HD ULED Smart TV [2020]

    JB Hifi $2290, $405 off they say.

    It got votes here in March when $2545ish

    Obviously the Q8 is more sparkly than the poor old:

      Hows the S8 for gaming/watching sport? bad motion blur?

      • +7 votes

        I won't answer because I refuse to be complicit in your planned usage.
        A television should be used with enhancement of your mind in mind.
        You should be watching news or Attenborough on ABC or reading movies on SBS.

          Or to watch someone munch on a magic pudding before they jump into the forums.

          The S8 is good value. The Q8 has improved brightness, colour reproduction, processing and refresh rate. If you can stretch the budget, it could be worthwhile, particularly if you also like your Attenborough along with your sport and gaming.

        Good. Going strong since 2018! Works like a charm.
        Oh wait, you don't mean the Samsung S8, do you?

        I have an older hisense basic 4K set and the q7, both the same size 65”. I don’t think The motion quality of the q7 is any better than the old set. Motion quality isnt hisense strong suit though. I expect sport would be very similar on the q7 vs the s8. I would expect sport to be better on the q8 because of the 100hz panel.

        The local dimming function on the q7 when watching bright sport is not useful or noticeable

        I have the 55 S8 and use it for gaming and have had no issues with it. It's obviously not monitor quality but it doesn't have any noticeable input lag and I haven't had issues with motion blur.. Probably one of the best budget TV's I have used for gaming. Hope this helps.

    •  

      I enquired about the local dimming zones for the Q8 to Hisense. They said the 55 has 132, 65 has 180 but the 75 also has 180? Very strange that it has the same amount of zones for a bigger size. Somebody else on the WP forum said the same thing. Either their told wrong info or the 75 just isn't that greater value compared to the rest (it also doesn't have the soundbar inbuilt) but I think its better anyway as most would rather have their own systems play the audio.

    Thanks OP. Ordered.

    Great price - was admiring the funky art slideshow function n the Q7 and Q8 in store a few weeks.

    Perfect excuse for an impulse purchase…

    •  

      Same, hope we both like it!

      Well, Hisense TVs are actually made by the Chinese government (State Owned Enterprise) so they don't even need to force a private Chinese company to do the spying for them ;)

    Got the 65q7 a few weeks ago for $1036 in the afterpay deal. It’s a good screen but am having some issues with hdmi Cec with a sound bar and also with some hdmi cec power options. Biggest issue was I had to turn off fast boot otherwise the wireless would only connect half the time so the smart tv apps wouldn’t work, then had to go into setiings and connect each time. But now with fast boot off it takes ages to startup. Also I get in input info popup every 30mins or so when I’m viewing a hdmi source. I believe it’s a problem with the hdmi on my sound bar doing a handshake or whatever causing it. Tried two Yamaha sound bars of different models and neither work perfectly. Both work perfect on a 10year old lg tv.

    The picture quality is great. though once I started watching stuff in Dolby vision or hdr10 I realised I should have gone the higher 1000nit brightness of the q8. I.e Once you start getting great picture quality you start wanting perfect picture quality. The inbuilt sound bar on the q8 would also have solved a lot of my hdmi issues.

    For $1000 it’s a great set but don’t expect a perfect product.

  •  

    This or a 65" tu8000 as a tv to connect to my PC for local co-op games via HDMI? Any other recommendations in this price bracket?

    •  

      I was considering the TU8000 too looks good. Higher refresh rate would be good for PC stuff. I just plan to connect consoles and watch netflix so 60Hz worked for me, plus the $200 cheaper price point meant I got the 65Q7. If you can, probably check them both out at a store and see which you prefer.

  •  

    Was wanting the Q8, but at basically 50% more I unfortunately can't justify it at the moment. So I had been l among towards the Q7 and this pushed me over the line.

    •  

      Yes mate if it was a matter of $300 it would be a no brainer for the q8. At $1000 there is nothing near the picture quality on offer with this q7 deal.

      •  

        You can haggle down TGG to under 1700 for the Q8 by the way.

        • +3 votes

          That's still 60-70% more than the Q7. The Q8 is without a doubt the better TV, But at $1000 vs $1600ish, it is really hard to justify when on a budget.

        TCL C715?

    • -1 vote

      Its a TCL.. so no.

      •  

        Yeah, I mean, that's what I was thinking. Looking at rtings reviews, they rate pretty highly though.

        Any specific comments other than "no"?

        • +1 vote

          I have the Hisense 65P7 which I believe is the model below this which we bought in 2018 for $1500. If you can get this model for $1k, I would say its a pretty good deal.

          The screen quality on the Hisense is pretty good. What is not great is their OS and the processing of stuff I send to it from the Plex server. However I am about to put in an Nvidia shield which should address that.

          Ultimately I want an OLED but until they come under $3k, I cant beat the price to value ratio of the 65P7. Keep this in mind when deciding if you want to buy the 65Q7.

          •  

            @nedski: Interesting. I have a 55P7 and I'm not a huge fan, it's okay. I get similar sub par quality using plex, it's pretty awesome with the xbox though!

            But the chromecast triggering the TV to come on stopped working ~2 years ago after the TV received it's only update ever (impossible to roll back), the interface is a touch laggy, not too bad, but it is much slower to turn on than I'd like (10-20s, should be <4s IMO).

            My biggest gripe with the 55P7 is the 'smoothed' ghosting in sport, when a ball is travelling left to right on the screen it basically disappears. I've tried tweaking all the imagine quality settings and it won't improve.

            Based on this, I'd question whether a TCL could be worse.

            Agree, also waiting for OLED to come down. Currently, I'm considering that TCL ^ vs this samsung https://www.jbhifi.com.au/products/samsung-q60a-65-qled-ultr.... Need to go see both in the flesh and have a play first, the samsung would really have to earn the 50% higher price though.

            •  

              @nzcoops: I dont watch any sport on mine and its mostly streaming or media from plex. I can understand that those issues would be annoying for you.

              If you are considering the $1800 for the QLED (im still iffy on that technology as much as I am about ULED technology) but if you are considering that price point. The Hisense SX series is around that price point and I saw one in person at HN and thought it looked really nice.

              •  

                @nedski: Fair. Appreciate the thoughts.

                Need something to narrow the selection down though eh, to avoid decision paralysis haha.

                Priorities being side-to-side sport, solid response casting, none laggy OS. I'm not worried about colour depth/UHDR etc, it's all 100% meaningless if the picture ghosts when it moves.

              •  

                @nedski: But Hisense still doesn't have a plex app - right?

                •  

                  @Ozitravel: Mine does.

                  However I am noting some limitations of my TV's ability to process higher end streams from my Plex server. Hence why im going to get an Nvidia Shield.

        •  

          TCL and Hisense are peers in terms of quality. They're a step up from Kogan/FFalcon/EKO and the like.

    •  

      The C715 is a decent TV. My parents own one. Can't compare to the Q7 as I've not seen one outside of the shopfloor.

    Got the 65Q7 in January and I have to say the picture quality is very good, unfortunately it has got some software glitches, for example I cant get the Kayo app to work and i keep losing all the channel seven stations. The remote control is good also.

    •  

      Have you played any games on it? If so how did it look and hold up?

  •  

    For those that have them, whats the Hisense 65Q7 and TCL 65C715 like in terms of build quality and physical toughness? I have a need to move a TV between 2 rooms from time to time (using 2 people). You hear horror stories of flimsy modern TVs which crack easily when handled.

  •  

    Is this the European equivalent? Looks like a good review: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YaQp9CU6UaE

    •  

      I believe so. Pulling up spec sheet for U7QF compared to the 65Q7, and randomly picking some of the specs, appears they are the same.

      •  

        Thanks. That review looks good, especially for a $1000 (AUD) TV! Not a huge upgrade from my current but the FALD and 4 HDMI ports are tempting.

          Mine is arriving today I'll let you know how it goes! Rung up my local good guys and they price matched the ebay $100 off. New place for me so need a telly, and for the price not many offers that are better.
