Same question. I do video editing. Input lag is important
PC Mag says:

"The R7 shows a decent input lag of 30.8ms in most picture modes, but enabling the Game Mode (which produces a slightly worse picture to offer better response) cuts that down to an excellent 15.2ms. This puts the R7 well below the approximate 20ms threshold we use to consider a TV to be very good for high-action, timing-intensive games."

Nothing I found on chroma but another Slickdeals thread where they come to no conclusions.

Alexa is listening to everything you say in your home. Google is tracking everything you do online. Facebook is compiling and selling your demographics.

In the information age, spying is just another word for monetizing data. Whataya gonna do?

I am not a fan of Amazon's lurch toward selling surveillance and facial recognition software, nor am I comfortable with the tech companies - both the big ones we all know of and the quiet ones operating in the shadows - asserting ownership of our data and metadata and the stuff that they then do with that data/metadata, but I have not seen anything that supports the claim that "Alexa is listening to everything you say in your home". I have analyzed my home network traffic and I am just not seeing it. I could totally be missing something, but I feel pretty confident that every tech site on the internet would gladly donate their senior editor's left testicle to be the one to break this story.

I think your heart is in the right place and that you're concerns are aligned with mine, and so I think that you should be careful in you claims so as not to be dismissed out of hand based on a factual inaccuracy.

If anyone is looking for an easy to understand discussion on the topic, the recent conversation between Sam Harris and Roger McNamee was a fantastic overview of what these companies are up to. https://samharris.org/podcasts/15...-facebook/

does this model have "active" HDMI? like if i turn my xbox, does the TV turn on automatically?
I have a 60" and it does. I like mine, but make sure you have a smart device to attach to it like a ROKU because IMO the weak point of these TVs are the interface and smart features. As far as watching TV and gaming, mine has been fantastic.

Anyone know what kind of panel it uses? Couldn't find it online.

I'm assuming it's not IPS.

Thanks!

Just bought it. Also there is a way to limit some of the tracking, at least for the connected devices. Just look up how to disable ACR on a roku tv platform.

I would not characterize the gulf between "Alexa is listening to everything you say in your home" and "We only annotate an extremely small sample of Alexa voice recordings in order improve the customer experience. For example, this information helps us train our speech recognition and natural language understanding systems, so Alexa can better understand your requests, and ensure the service works well for everyone.
We have strict technical and operational safeguards, and have a zero tolerance policy for the abuse of our system. Employees do not have direct access to information that can identify the person or account as part of this workflow. All information is treated with high confidentiality and we use multi-factor authentication to restrict access, service encryption and audits of our control environment to protect it.
" as a quibble.

There are real problems in the tech world. We don't have to go around inventing monsters to slay when there are actual issues that could use our attention.

Yes definitely worth it, specially at this price point. I've had a similar model for 3 years now and I have zero complaints.
Hisense is reputable? My apologies if it sounds elitist but I haven't looked into TV sets for years.

LOL. Amazon's legal department press statement is not quite the objective source I'd rely upon.

And, if you parse their statement, they admit they *are* listening (i.e., recording). Their defense is they are only annotating a portion of those recordings, which is obvious, considering the sheer volume of data Alexa would collect - you'd need almost a one-to-one ratio of listeners to speakers to achieve that. (The NSA uses a similar argument - hey, we couldn't possibly listen to everyone's phone calls, even though we have access to them) . And, Amazon assures us, they are only listening to improve customer experience, which can mean anything from the example they choose (improving voice recognition) to other undisclosed possibilities, such as building a database of your preferences, which they argue improves "customer service" but can be code for "monetizing your data". Finally, they assure they hire good people who won't abuse the data, a promise which of course is subject to all human frailty, and which does not exclude the possibility of monetizing your data, as long as the customer-data association is kept apart from the listeners.

So, this is not an invented monster. It's possibly a benign one, but I'm not basing that judgment on Amazon's PR response.

This particular TV is a Smart TV with Roku, so in this case, I'm assuming this negates your suggestion to "attach a smart device to it like a ROKU."
