Good guys Ebay have this on sale for $1295, minus $100 using code PPSS100.
Not bad, nearly as good as the recent one for $1163
it's 1,205.55 now, back in stock
Any good deal for 75?
Just the standard $2250 pricing google search throws up from videopro and 1 or 2 other joints.
Wow that's a tiny price difference between 65 to 75inch. Lol
Yep, usually the case for all TVs not from the bottom barrel ranges.
Can get Samsung au8000 for 1650
Worth it? Serious question
@Jono258: For a basic tv. Yes?
@Jono258: No local dimming, very limited brightness. Its OK for a basic TV if you want a Samsung but in many respects it is noticeably inferior to the Q8.
@Xizor: Thanks mate.
Videpro delivery fee is so expensive, it really does put me off buying anything from them.
It has just dropped to 1,295$ for the 75" UHD version. Also you can use the 100$ off coupon for this deal on Ebay. So the total would be with the discount is 1,250$.
He is confusing the bottom series S8 to this Q8. Completely different TVs.
I am currently using a TU8000 43inch and want to upgrade.
Is this TV decent for AFL, Kayo, netflix, prime, YT? Mainly in an open north facing living room with lots of light. The only console I play is ps1, ps2 and switch. Maybe some light gaming on steam (DOTA, team fortress, payday, left4dead).
Open to suggestions. Budget is $2k and want a 65-75 inch TV
We have a 65 Q8 from the few years ago, 2018 I think. Good tv, we don't really stress it, 4k in a darker room, bit of xbox. I stream kayo to it.
I am looking at getting a newer TV and if it wasn't for lack of hdmi 2.1 this would be on the radar.
Thanks. Might consider this TV. The 200hz makes it attractive for sports/kayo. But mainly for AFL and occasional movies. I can't justify a large price tag TV.
next question, will this fit in a corolla or camry?
4 blokes will hold this on the roof of either. Just keep it off the motorways.
@Sarge2401: Box will be approx 1m x 1.5m
Can you lay modern TV's down? Last time I picked one up, it had to be kept upright. Don't know if it's something to do with the actual screen or just that the glass is more fragile? Since then I've had them delivered and they're always upright
It has box dimensions in the pictures on the eBay link. 1070 x 1620 x 170
@whitelie: I am pretty sure this only applied to the "old" plasma TV. If I am not completely mistaken our Hisense even instructed you to lay it flat to install the feet.
Pulled the trigger. Got the family approval. Price works out well
As someone who has worked in a warehouse dispatching TVs to customers, most likely won't fit.
Might fit lying down but some places make you sign away warranty for physical damage to TV if you do that.
Easiest option is usually delivery, normally $40/$60.
No, I don't think so. I just fit it in my Tarago.
Mate the Q8 is the 2020 series, you must be thinking of a different model.
Your right, 65P9, mine has array dimming zones, not the edge lit. 2 very different TV's. I still love mine though, and recommend them. Got both my parents Hisense TV's and my smaller one is Hisense 55r7.
Ouch. Paid 1300 two weeks ago for this.
IT'S NOT OK
I'm channeling my inner sparta. We all feel BB's pain
IT'S OK TO BE NOT OK.
Are you consoling yourself for the unlucky timing of the purchase, or is the TV itself OK?
The TV itself is "ok"
It's good for the price and the internal speakers a decent enough for a wall mount.
Good to know re: speakers, Thanks
This exact thing happened to me a couple of weeks ago with Harvey Norman.
I purchased a TV for about $1,150 and I saw it pop up on OzBargain for about $880 at TGG a few weeks later(no stock in my state though). I was kind of cheesed off so I emailed the guy at HN that I dealt with and he provided a store credit for the difference no questions asked.
I'm not sure if you'll have the same success but just throwing it out and obviously they might tell you to piss off but it's worth a try. I thought this was really quality service and was very surprised anything was done about it.
They recently had a windfall from myself and other taxpayers.
Didn't know :(
$130 delivery for me.
Looks like retailers clearing stock for the U8G
What's the difference between this and the Q7?
Haven't unboxed mine from the recent GoodGuys deal and now debating whether I should upgrade to the Q8…
This should give you a rough idea. Q7~ H8G and Q8 ~ H9G
Thanks! The recommended calibration will be handy
I picked up a Q7 at $1000 a month and a half ago, and whilst the Q8 is definitely better, and I would have bought one at this pricepoint, I have absolutely zero complaints about my Q7 (Other than the useless hisense OS which would be an issue on either and can be fixed with a chromecast with google tv).
Anyone else can't get the promo code to work? PPSS100 thanks in advance
Applied fine for me…didn't complete checkout but worked prior to payment
worked fine for me and paid
Also can use coles mastercard giftcard. Another 7.5% off
My hisense just got an update for native Kayo app too.
Why not pay a few dollars more and get a Sony or a Samsung?? What is the equivalent version worth with them??
Well, because "few" can be almost twice as much in this case. The equivalent of this would be the Samsung Q80T or Sony X90H. If you game I'd go with Samsung or Sony though.
I thought the sony could be had for $1750 from Costco??
So ~60% more? The general consensus on the Q8 is that it is a very good unit in general, not just a very good unit for a Hisense. From my reading it seemed like only the Sony's were a potentially better option, but they also cost a considerable chunk more.
I was being generous with Sony since I'm a bit of a Sony fanboy. The Hisense can actually trade blows with the X950H:
"The Hisense H9G is a bit better overall than the Sony X950H. The Hisense has a much better contrast ratio, it has a much quicker response time, and a lower input lag. However, the Sony has much better out-of-the-box color accuracy, it gets brighter in HDR, and it handles reflections better."
With that said, it's obviously cheaper for good reasons, brand name being the primary one. Hisense's QC is pretty bad since I've heard a lot of replacing units. Hisense Australia CS is generally good though, you've got ACL in worst case. I haven't checked but Sony warranty is (probably) longer? And Android TV/Google TV wins hands down. Sony wins gaming as well.
I'll never buy another Samsung product due to the shit service I've had from previous phones and TV's. A similar spec Sony TV X90H or X90J is over $2k
Was about to buy it but looked at the photo … how ugly is the thick speaker frame part … if only it wasn't there.
Apparently that's the built in sound bar! I actually saw this TV in the flesh and I thought the front speaker gave it a premium look.
Front firing speakers are much better than rear or downward… Supposed to be Dolby Atmos certified on the 65q8 also.
Each to their own, I actually like the look of it, and function over form for me too.
I prefer the legs on this compared to those TVs with the legs on the edge - fits on smaller cabinets.
I also like the inbuilt sound bar - for inbuilt speakers it is above average, for those times you don't want to turn on external speakers - the sound is more than adequate, reasonable bass and volume and fullness (not tinny at all like some TVs). Front firing too.
In the real world, whats the sound quality like from the 65Q8?
Anyone knows if you can “price guarantee” from the TGG eBay? Bought this TV not long ago at a price of $1400.
How's the picture?
Blacks and brightness is as good or better than basically any other LED but picture quality (clarity, colours, upscaling, motion etc) isnt close to high end TV's.
Good thing it isn't a 'high end TV' then haha.
I can't speak for this model specifically but as a brand as a whole they are solid, and hard to beat at the price point comparatively.
@Spiderboy: I'm getting one of these shortly as a replacement to my 65p8 under warranty (kinda hoped they'd give me a U8G but can't complain). Looking forward to it as it adds Full Array Local Dimming, Dolby Vision & Atmos.
Don't need to worry about upscaling or motion interpolation as my devices output 4k & I turn off motion interpolation.
@Spiderboy: It is a high end TV! Just because the sale prices are hugely different doesn't take away its good qualities. I should point out that if you are sitting further away then about 2 metres from the TV then it is quite comparable to the high end sets for most features. Motion and colours still struggle but clarity isn't as big of a drop the further away you are from the TV.
Bargain….. Not sure why people are not liking the Viidaa OS… Super stable… Youtube, Amazon P and Netflix are super fast and stable and picture quality is 10/10. I still have Chromecast device hooked at the back for Disney + but rarely use it.
When I bought mine, people ragged on Vidaa, so I thought I'd be using Chromecast constantly. Now for convenience most of the time I use the inbuilt Netflix, Youtube, iView etc apps.
Ordered, was $55 shipping in Perth
Looking for a 55in does the Q8 come in 55?
Bing Lee currently has the 55Q8 for $995 + delivery https://www.binglee.com.au/hisense-55q8-55-inch-uled-4k-smar...
The good guys, Harvey Norman and JB websites also have it at the same price if that's closer.
Thanks to you both. I'll take a look.
Would this qualify for the Disney Plus 1 year deal if you buy from ebay?
Not too sure…..its not a deal breaker for me, but I suppose there is no harm in asking.
For info, I ordered yesterday (at time of posting) - $55 shipping to Perth.
I've just had a call to arrange delivery for tomorrow (Friday).
I’m in the market for a large tv for upstairs. Are these good? The spot got tv may reflect light. Looking for recommendations 🙏
$1,205.55 inc. delivery
i got the 55 inch for $995 today as a warranty replacement for my TCL c715 so they will pick up my TCL C715 purchased in july 2020 i paid $715 for it so today I paid 280 dollar more for the difference for the q8 55". i got lucky because TCL did not have a c715 50" replacement due to stock issues so they offered me store credit. should be quite the upgrade from the edge lit TCL. also free pickup for old tv and free delivery for the Q8, very happy with the service so far from TCL and TGG as far as warranty.
I'd be interested to hear how the sound quality compares between your C715 and the Q8
i mostly use the c715 with Bluetooth earbuds for night watching
Rapidly going out of stock
Put in an order. TV went bust yesterday and hoping they don't take too long to deliver.
If you choose delivery, what kind of guarantee do you have that it will be delivered undamaged?
The same as any other thing that has ever been and ever will be shipped?
Kind of an open ended question isn't it?
