Hisense 85" U8G 4K ULED Smart TV 85U8G $2970.75 + Delivery @ The Good Guys


Original Coupon Deal

Hisense 85" U8G ULED TV

Comes with a 3 year warranty. My experience with Hisense warranty support has been very good.

Key Features:

  • 3840 x 2160 resolution display with Local Dimming Pro, 200 Smooth motion rate, and a wide colour gamut for sharp and vibrant visuals
  • Integrated with VIDAA Smart TV operating system for convenient content management
  • Built with Dolby Vision, HDR10+, and HDR10 with HLG support, making it compatible with various HDR content
  • Comes with HDMI and USB ports to easily accommodate multiple external media sources
  • Convenient voice command support (Alexa and Google Assistant) on the included Bluetooth Voice Remote

Code HOUSE10 expires midnight Friday 15 October.

$3495 at JB, Harvey Norman, Domayne, The Good Guys and Bing Lee.

Note this is the Australian version. The USA version with exactly the same model number is a much, much better TV.

This TV has only partial HDMI 2.1 compliance. It supports VRR, ALLM, eARC and QMS - but only at 60FPS maximum, not 4K @ 120HZ - only 4K @ 60HZ.

Deal is expired. Frustratingly The Good Guys had the TV for $3495 less 15% on 13 October, but sometime in the morning of 14 October they upped the price to $3995 less 15% which is about $3395 which isn't anywhere near as good a deal as $2970.75.

$2970.75 is the best price I have ever seen advertised for this TV.

    I hear that Hisense TVs have gone down the drain in terms of quality? Used to be almost as good as a Samsung.

    • -1

      Yup, that’s because they started making their own panels when they used to buy them from Samsung.

      • +1

        When has Samsung ever been considered as good quality? All of their panel are smeared with dirty screen.

        • -1

          You will find that’s a problem with VA panels in general and not Samsung panels specifically.

          • @DisabledUser393851: No not really, Sony uses va panels in a lot of their mid to upper range of tvs. None has quality issues like Samsung. Anyone with a Sony can tell you about Samsung quality issues. Samsung panel = don’t buy.

            • @fuzor: Yeah, really.
              This isn’t an opinion, it’s based off factual information by people who test these panels for a living.
              You may want to have a look at RTINGS.
              There’s absolutely nothing to suggest that Sony’s grey uniformity is better than Samsung’s.

              • +1

                @DisabledUser393851: His right the Samsung panels we get in Australia has really bad DSE, probably why they even dropped VA from most of the range for ADS. Rtings is not 100% true to what we get here anyway. Samsung is not great at all, can't even get DV on them with the nits available

                • @Dezeption: Samsung USED to be bad with DSE, not anymore. At least, no worse than it’s main competitor.

                  • @DisabledUser393851: That's because its ADS in most of their range which I find still crap compared to a good VA and their VA in 2021 still has DSE and banding. Returned 2 85" units because of it and went with Sony instead

                    • @Dezeption: Panel lottery.
                      OLED’s are supposed to have the best Gray uniformity however banding is quite prevalent. Of course that depends on the grayscale as well.

                      • @DisabledUser393851: You dont know what you're talking about. Its not a lottery when you lose everytime with Samsung and win everytime with Sony. Samsung does not know of quality control and going with ADS panels does not solve that problem. Nobody is talking OLED (which Samsung dont have) with you.

                        • +1

                          @fuzor: Lol excuse me?
                          No one cares about ADS panels. You’re making a blanket statement that all Samsung’s are inferior to Sony without providing any evidence to support your claim. I realise Samsung don’t sell OLED’s, you’re just embarrassing yourself now.

                          • +1

                            @DisabledUser393851: You're the one changing the topic to OLED when you feel like you're fighting a losing battle for a company that dont have quality control. You're deluded bringing Samsung into a Hisense thread. You brought up RTings, maybe you should have a look yourself. https://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/samsung/q90-q90t-qled
                            (CONS: Vignetting and dirty screen effect)

                            Glad Hisense isn't using Samsung panels anymore as you say they have been. That would be immediate cause for people to not buy them. Samsung can't even bring out a quality panel for their own top end tvs, what chance has another brand have of getting anything of quality from them.

                            • -1

                              @fuzor: A pointless debate is pointless.
                              You're crazy to think that Chineses manufacturers can make better panels than the South Korean. Remember what model put Hisense on the map? The M7000. Guess what panel it used? SDC. I used to work for Hisense and can tell you first hand that they're garbage now. Hisense are trash and they will forever be trash until they stop making their own panels.
                              Have a look at that table, Samsung don't have bad Gray uniformity. I have nothing more to add. Cheers.

                                @DisabledUser393851: Yeah and I work for the government and can tell you first hand that Samsung is rubbish.

                                You sound like a disgruntled ex-employee the way you put it. I would never shit talk a former employer who paid me wages but each to their own. You knew the Chinese cant make better panels than South Koreans but you still applied to work for them? Tells me more about you than anything else.

                                BTW South Korea makes a lot of garbage. As my link above with their flagship Q90 tv, Samsung charges more than or the same as Sony but provide rubbish panels. At least with Hisense, they provide a discount to the end customer.

                                • @fuzor: I ain't mad, I'm merely stating facts. If we're going to start making assumptions, it sounds like you're salty from being burned by Samsung. I didn't work for Hisense for their reputation nor do I care about Samsung, I own a LG B7 and a Sony X93E (real manufacturers).

    • Maybe. I hear their 8K TV is pretty nice - 85U80G.

      It's a bargain compared to competitor 8K offerings.

    That's a Samsung level of marketing bs

    • Apparently its “Ultra” in comparison to the rest of their LED’s.

  • Same level as Q8 2020 model, not much difference, not MINI LED

    • These things are above the Q8. Taken from rtings.con

      The Hisense U8G is much better than the Hisense H8G. The U8G has much better reflection handling and significantly higher peak brightness, so it looks better in a bright room. The U8G has slightly better contrast and a better local dimming feature, so dark room performance is better, too. Finally, the U8G has a wide array of gaming features, including support for a 120Hz refresh rate, variable refresh rate support, and 2 HDMI 2.1 ports.

        I assume the rtings is on the US version, not the one we get here with the same model number but is considerably crappier

        • +2

          Yeah, you're correct. How Hisense gets away with giving the TV the same model number but give it different features amazes me. Maybe a good lawyer could sue them.

          • +2

            @omblygombly: Wow that's ridiculous to have the same model number but inferior specs. I looked at reviews for the model number and apparently Hisense tried pulling a shifty on Australia.

            Hopefully no one purchases it based on reviews for the US model.
