About this deal

It’s not exceptional for a few different reasons, but it’s more than adequate and just as good as the more expensive, comparably specced LG and Samsung models. I was looking at the Hisense U8H TV and rtings gave it such outstanding ratings, with the exception of viewing angle. You also can’t stick to a static image, meaning you’re condemned to cycle through various pictures against your will. Choosing HDR Day does make it more visible in the sun but it also makes colours look a little over the top, while HDR Night dulls them out a little too much.

Dialogue is intelligible with all content types but the overall sound quality is a little boxed in and lacking any real dynamic range. Its QLED panel delivers a superbly wide color gamut and fantastic color volume, making colors bright, vibrant, and realistic. Dolby Vision manages to use the dynamic metadata and tone mapping to make DV content look better than HDR10, but it is still hampered by a lack of peak brightness and dynamic range available from the panel.

The colours are decent, but since it’s only an 8bit + FRC panel, you only get 100% coverage of the sRGB spectrum, rather than a wider color space like DCI-P3. As for availability, according to Hisense, the U76N will be available in late January 2024, with the rest of the ULED lineup coming out later this year.

Other benefits include two voice assistants (Alexa and Google Assistant) and Hisense's own VIDAA U6 Smart TV OS. It also has good peak brightness in SDR and decent reflection handling, so glare isn't an issue in a brighter room. With 20W of audio power from the speakers, the sound from the Hisense A7G is really loud, I only kept it on about 25% volume for the majority of the time I spent with it. The Hisense also has more features overall, such as VRR and 24p judder removal from more sources, which makes up for the Roku's slight edge in picture quality.It has a direct LED backlight but with no local dimming, it’s a global system and as such the panel is a little deeper than an edge-lit TV. Those short of space – or looking for a second set for a bedroom or kitchen – can opt for the 43-inch mode, while those with the means can go big with the 85-incher.

Like with the picture, most people will probably keep it to either Standard or Auto, but if you’re having a movie night then it could well be worth switching to Theatre because it boosts the surround sound effect to some degree. Remember, the bigger you go, the worse the picture will look, as Full HD really pales in comparison to 4K.Of course, A4 TVs won’t offer up the best gaming performance or even support 4K, so if you care about high-resolution content or want to play games in 4K, you’ll be better served by any number of other sets. You’ll get all of the benefits of a 4K QLED display with an easy-to-use system and some extra smart features to sweeten the deal.
