This Costco price was mentioned in last month's Amazon deal post, but the Amazon deal has expired and the Costco price is still valid so I'm making a new post. Content below copied from original post:

=======================================

2019 Hisense 65" 65R8F
65 = 65" VA panel
R = US Smart TV w/ Roku
8 = 8 series
F = 2019 (G would be 2020)

Total came to $628 after tax in CA

I've been scouring through all the 65" TV (value and mid tier) deals posted here today and this has the best rtings score (7.4) and brightness for a living room placement.

It has a VA panel (not IPS) and it will be used mainly for tv/movie and Switch. This feels like the best bang for buck to me.

Costco has it for $569.99 with all the extra year of warranty and 90 day return if you have a Costco membership.

Meh. IMHO take the Walmart ONN for $228 when they run it again (it's a Hisense) and call it good for a year. This OP TV will be in the same 250ish range come next year.

It is R8. It has wide color gamut. If you do not know what wide color gamut does, the orange pylons in football will look very real. But with non gamut, it will just be a plan orange color. If you had at home one of these pylons, the TV color would look exactly like the one in your hands with wide color gamut. Lets just say wide color gamut is as pure and as real as color gets.

90 day return policy at costco. Love it or return it.

but it is a Hisense. And the only way for me to test it would be to watch a hockey game to see if the puck blurs, Perhaps good for movies...bad for sports.

Rtings review.

The Hisense H8F is a very good entry-level 4k TV with great picture quality, decent motion handling, and excellent low input lag. It looks great in a dark room, as it has an impressive contrast ratio, outstanding black uniformity, and a full array local dimming feature. It has great peak brightness with SDR content, and has great reflection handling. Unfortunately, motion doesn't look as great, as it has a very slow response time, and although it has an optional motion interpolation feature, it isn't very good and constantly cuts out.

You beat me to it. The H8/R8 is a good TV, even the 2019 models. The liquor is really flowing early this Thanksgiving with these trolls comparing it to a $250 TV Hisense wont even put their name on.

Edit:

Per Consumer Reports Walmart won't disclose who makes their TV's but Warranty Service for ONN TV's will be handled by Element Electronics. What is their relationship with Hisense? There isn't one. Actually Element is an American Company that Assembles their TV's in South Carolina. They may well get components from Hisense, but I'm not sold that ONN TV's come out of a dedicated Hisense Factory.

Pros
Slim
Roku
Cheap

Cons
Mediocre performance
Poor Black reproduction
Bad Briteness

I'm reasonably sure the Orange cones are well within SDR gamut. But Lamborghini orange certainly will look better with Wide Gamut.

That said, I don't think this tv is worth this price, the TCL 625 was only $600 on sale, and that has higher peak brightness AND wider quantum dot gamut (which has purer color primaries vs the h8f).

I never get Hisense myself unless it was for garage. TCL 625 is nice except for DSE which depends which models you get.

The TV without Wide color gamut are dull compared to TV that have it. You have to see this side by side. Also cheaper TV dont have crisp whites.

That orange....hard to explain unless you see side by side. on a wide color gamut, it looks so rich, vibrant, wide color gamut is color on steroids.

Dont ever get a tv without wide color gamut. unless its one of those super cheap 65 inch 200 dollar tv ...who cares then,

It is hard to explain unless you sat down and put a wide color gamut TV next to a non wide gamut TV. A non gamut TV looks great at the store... Costco had some models next to each other by Samsung and the non wide gamut Samsungs I could not adjust with the remote to get a decent red.

I've been using wide gamut since adobe-wide monitors, which actually has higher total color volume than the current DCIp3 panels.

It's not the case that wide is always better. There is such a thing as the Wrong-Red.

And when you stretch standard gamut material alot of times you will blow out its highlight detail because the wrong saturation tracking pushes too many colors into the edges.


I have wide gamut monitors and TVs, but without 3Dlut correction, even expensive units do a poor job of reproducing creator's intent out of the box.

If you're interested in THE RIGHT COLOR and not just MORE color, the x-rite probes always go on sale this time of year, pick one up and dive deep into Madvr renderer for HTPC, it can do full gamut correction and HDR dynamic tonemapping.

Looking at the Costco site, this has "Motion rate 240" as opposed to most cheaper TVs that have 60 native and "motion rate 120".

Is this not 2x better for things like puck blur? That's why I was considering jumping on it for twice the cost of others.
