    omg so now 70' TV cost less than $1000? I think I am still living in the past. I always thought 70" TV would cost about 10k, so is this brand really really bad that no one would ever buy or its just a really good bargain? I don't know much about TV. is it normal to cost less than $1000 now?

        My Hisense 65 inch lasted less than a year, rarely used. My Sony is still going strong after 7 years, everyday use.

          I have the opposite experience with my 2 Sony TV's (65" and 55") both died from software issues shortly after the warranty period.

          Ive bought a few Kogan tvs. Actually over the years dozens of TVs really. No problems with the Kogan TVs i owned. My kids don't complain or know they're lower end TVs. They love playing their Xbox on them.

          But in all honesty the only brand I have ever had issues with was Samsung. My 64inch plasma died a few times over a 6 month period. Before refunding it and going for an LG 4k TV at twice the price when 4k was new.

          But that was one TV. Owned a Samsung DLP and LCD before it that worked fine. So i don't have an issue with Samsung based on one bad experience. Only TV I ever had die on me actually. From top of my head i have owned all sorts of cheap crappy brands (Seiki, Kogan, Viana, TCL) and good brand TVs (Samsung, Hisense, LG) with no issues at all except for the Samsung Plasma. Also have a Sanyo Z700 projector running on the original bulb that I bought back in 2009.

          Not to say they were all great TVs. But they survived the period i had them. Although bi often only have tvs a couple years and upgrade before family / my ex (for kids at her house) get the old one. Its an addiction.

          •  

            @mxlegend99: Same. Won't touch Samsung TV, pos died 15 months after purchased.

            My hisense that I got during that deal with jb (phone plan and you get either get a $400GC or the TV), that's still going strong.

            Both my LG, (10 years and one 16 months) still going strong.

            Just make sure this one support BT.. I know my hisense was a aud stock and no BT.

        •  

          My Hisense 55" TV is running strong for 7 years now, no issues at all.
          Back then Hisense wasn't as popular as now but what stood out was the 3 year warranty which no other brand offered; thankfully i didn't have to use it.
          Hisense did ship the firmware update usb stick when youtube stopped working a few years back. Saying that, the smart features aren't great but i have been using a tv box for years and now the google tv which works v well.

      I’ve been using a 4-year-old model 4K Samsung smart TV for the past 2 years. I picked it up for less than $1k. It’s 55 inches. The smart tv functionality is flawless, and it has never had a single hiccup. Netflix, Amazon Prime, Apple TV, Google Play Movies, iView, SBS, etc. all work perfectly. Based on this experience, I would never buy any other brand except Samsung. But that’s just me. You can probably get any TV nowadays and if the smart functionality doesn’t work well just plug in Google Chrome.

      I've been using a Hisense 75" TV since last year. It's on hours a day (because kids) and we have had no major issues with it. Occasionally you need to hard power it off (because smart functions) but otherwise it's been flawless. It's not perfect, but it's better in almost every way than the 55" TCL that I bought for a different room.

      I am using Hisense TV for past 5 years and waiting for it to die so I can buy a bigger one. That thing is still rock solid and may last another 5. It’s a decent brand. Interface is slow but it’s a great bang for buck. Bought 50” for almost that price 5 years ago.

      Ignore some of the posters here, their TV's are fine, most components are shared across lots of brands anyway though I would recommend getting a soundbar for any cheap tv..plus you dont get shitty stuff like samsung's ads.

    Any opinions on the Hisense 65A7G vs the Hisense 65Q8?
    The A7G comes out cheaper and allows for click and collect near me, but not too sure what the exact differences are

    • +4 votes

      Q8 has local dimming, a true 100hz panel (200 smooth motion) and a very nice inbuilt soundbar it has 1000nits brightness which does HDR and Dolby vision justice.
      Q7 has local dimming, no soundbar, 60hz panel (100 smooth motion), Dolby vision but only 700nits brightness so not that great in HDR and dolby vision.
      A7G looks like the updated Q7, similar specs, less HDMI iputs (3) instead of 4. Dosent look like it has full HDMI 2.1 support.

      Note I have a Q7. The Q8 is an absolute bargin at this price its such a great TV, only let down is no HDMI 2.1, and the VIDIAA interface.

      Specs wise, the Hisense. Not sure about software support though, might wanna look into getting a shield or Google TV dongle.

      •  

        Alright… and when you say "specs wise" what does that mean in layman terms? whats specs to look at? as these QLED ULED things really dont make much sense to me

        •  

          Picture quality in most situations will be better on the Hisense Q8 due to the Q8 having local dimming and better brightness. The Q8 does however have some HDR bugs with red skin tones/red blur for some scenes in some content. How big an issue it really is im not sure, but its well documented. It also has a 3yr warranty.

          Low quality content/free to air, some sports due to motion handling etc may appear better on the Samsung depending on how like to set it up.

          Gaming wise, both are pretty average not something you'd pick if an enthusiast.

      Good points, but really rarely should one be basing their TV decision making on the TV O/S. A stand alone media player is almost always a much better choice.

      How do you find the HDR on the 75Q8 and the infamous red skin tone/blur? Curious how prevalent it really is. I've been eyeing the 75 for the past year…. still not pulled the trigger.

    I have a 55q8 and Sony 55x90h and I think they are both the best budget TV's around for those of us who can't really afford OLED, not sure why there is so much Hisense hate, hopefully warranted. I would recommend both to anyone based on Q8 experience (only 1 year old though). Overall Q8 i think is better if you watch decent quality material and don't care about disney without getting another device. I found the q8 didn't upscale normal TV very well like the Sony does but didn't play with settings too much. (I also don't watch normal TV, only stream/ watch downloaded movies/PS5 but partner does) In any case at this price it's a steal.

    • +1 vote

      I concur. I bought the 55Q8 after researching for yonks and I'm personally blown away by it.

      I was fairly settled on this unit before going into the physical store, but even comparing it to more expensive units from Samsung and LG I honestly felt it had the most pleasing overall image.

      Admittedly I was previoulsy watching an old Panasonic Viera Plasma Full HD, so the jump to 4K itself was amazing, but there's some features like HDR and Dolby Vision that make the image so real as to look fake! Seriously I think I was conditioned to see graininess and now it's almost hard to get used to.

      HDR makes lights and lamps in a scene literally glow on the screen.

      Obviously watching high quality imagery is key, so 4K content on Netflix or YouTube is where I'm most impressed so far (even though the stream is compressed). I haven't watched Bluray which would presumably be even better!

      The built-in soundbar is adequate for general viewing, but I found it lacking for concerts and really cranking up the footy or whatever.

      I connected my Sennheiser Momentum 2 headphones via bluetooth but found I had to nearly max all of the the volumes to be happy.

      I find the VIDAA system pretty good, but then again I mainly just use NetFlix.

      I don't love the remote layout, but that seems to be a common issue in my experience as I'm rarely happy with the layouts. Part of the problem is the lack of lighting on the buttons, so in a dimly lit room you have to remember where buttons are (or turn the damn light on)! That's a general whinge.

      Overall I would highly recommend the Hisense (upper range) TV's.

  • +3 votes

    The 70" is fine if you have realistic expectations. It's 70" and under $1k. It's definitely not total shit. The image is fine for what it costs. If you are a picture buff and the darkness of black colours in TVs keeps you awake at night then it isn't for you. It has a great 4k upscale feature which is good. The only time I've noticed jaggies is when watching cartoons/animated shows. However, the sports mode fixes this problem. It's a good value TV.

  • +2 votes

    I can't find anything on the 70" but the 65" has Bluetooth. If guys are going to get the 70", make sure it has Bluetooth.

    Made the mistake 2 years ago, got another Hisense and that doesn't has Bluetooth. The international model has Bluetooth but the Australian stock doesn't. Real pain the the arse.

      Plug from the Wiki:


      What should I do if I receive a "This code can't be applied to your order." error when attempting to use a coupon code?

      This error can stem from a range of issues, if the coupon genuinely does not apply to the item then you will receive the error (an excluded item in the promotion as set out by the terms and conditions). If you know that the coupon can apply to the item but you are not able to apply the coupon on your account then it will be due to an issue with the creation of the eBay account. To apply the coupon, you can do 2 steps:

      1. Complete the purchase as a guest without creating an account.
      2. Contact eBay Live Chat and request a review of your account and ask the representative to transfer the properties to be an eBay.com.au eBay account as the account may have been made in a different region originally and can't be used for some purchases.

      Give this a go and it should fix your problem :)

    Wouldn't recommend Hisense much. Bought a 65" and it died literally at 3.5 years, just after the warranty expired.

    Great TVs I buy them now instead of Samsung. Mines been going for nearly 3 years so far.

  •  

    I bought the 65 inch Q8 for my parents about a week ago for $1250 at JB Hi-fi.
    I was very hesitant as I wasn't really sure about Hisense as a TV brand (And we've had a Samsung LCD TV for about 15 years and it was still going strong).
    The TV brightness and quality is quite good, the OS VIDAA was ugly but didn't bother me that much (We also have a Google Chromecast for our Apple TV movies).

    It seemed okay - but it has only been a week so far.
    Will be interested to see how this goes. Not expecting it to last 15 years as long as our Samsung.
