Limited-time deal: Hisense 65-Inch Class H8 Quantum Series Android 4K ULED Smart TV with Voice Remote (65H8G1, 2021 Model)

Hisense released a 2021 version of the H8G as an amazon exclusive model (thus new model number of H8G1). Some cosmetic changes to back panel but specs seem identical. Versus the U6G, it has a slightly brighter panel (700 nits vs 600 nits) and more dimming zones (90 vs 60 in 65" model). Android 10 OS.

I don't know for this model, but for my U6G you can turn off the light permanently in the settings. So, I'd bet this hisense has the same feature.

All my Hisense TVs (Android) you can disable the light in the settings.

No, especially if you claim any sort of warranty.

Sony is better for color accuracy, and motion

H8G1 is actually a different tv than the H8G from 2020 so rting rating does not apply. It is a new Amazon exclusive model. H8G1 is actually closer to the U6G. It pairs the processor and firmware of the U6G (to the extent that it identifies itself as a U6G when you turn it on) with the backlight system of the H8G which is brighter and has more dimming zones. the video reviewer linked above tested all the hisense models and noted that the H8G1 did in fact have superior picture quality to the U6G with better blacks and brighter highlights. The improved algorithms and increased number of dimming zones actually enabled it to outperform the U8G in terms of local dimming system effectiveness, although not as bright as the U8G and losing slightly in overall quality to the U8G. I suggest watching this video:

This sales price has been up for a little while now, but it's good someone posted since not many people are even aware it exists separate from the original 2020 H8G. No Rtings review specifically covers this unfortunately, but for the same $450 sales price for the 55", I would have to take this over the U6G. Basically the same features, with a slightly higher peak brightness and better local dimming over a U6G that already has much better contrast than anything other budget market LED from 2021 lineups. That being said, in the 55" class Amazon also currently has the H9G from 2020 for only $50 more ($499). The H9G was a very well reviewed flagship that couldn't be matched for the price even at launch, and is essentially the 2021 U8G which I have without HDMI 2.1 and VRR. The model reviewed by Rtings had exceptional black uniformity, and has now had enough time on the market to receive firmware updates to greatly improve the local dimming algorithm to relieve ghosting issues. The 55" also has the same number of dimming zones as the U8G, and despite having a lower declared peak brightness level of 1,000 nits, real content testing has actual revealed sustained levels well above that. It even also has a 120hz panel, though it doesn't actually support 120hz signals. Given the current stage of it's release cycle, the updates and improvements since launch might make this an even better option at 55" today than the U8G for everyday video consumption, as the U8G will need a number of firmware updates before it reaches it's full potential. If I hadn't gotten the 55U8G for $650 over the holidays and was still searching super bowl deals for a new TV, I believe I would take the slightly more expensive route to grab an H9G over this. That being said, the H8G1 is absolutely a great TV at this price point, and is more competitive compared to the H9G at their current 65" price points.
I bought 2 Hisense, first 65" lasted under 2 years luckily I bought warrant. But, Allstate gave me around $80 less then what I paid for (value excluding tax). Now my recent 60" Hisense crapped out less than a year and manufacturer warranty doesn't want anything to do with it... Told me to contact my extended warranty.. and extended warranty told me to contact Hisense.... Still waiting on response from both parties. Just buy the extended warranty if anyone goes with Hisense imho..

"The Hisense U6G is better than the Hisense H8G. The U6G has much better black uniformity and better reflection handling, so it's a bit more versatile. The U6G also has a slightly faster response time, and the unit we tested has better gray uniformity. "

I'm only a casual gamer these days, so while 120Hz would be nice, it isn't necessarily vital on the gaming front, but 120Hz is also good for displaying motion of 24p content properly.

Anyone with either this TV or a U6G have any feedback on motion with film/24p material?

Read the reddit on the 2020 tv. Seems to have some issues. Hopefully addressed in the 2021

Thought this was interesting from one of the amazon reviews:

"Anyway I would have expected this unit to be a VA panel, but if it is, the viewing angles wothout color degradation are pretty wide."

Maybe it's an IPS panel?

Will this TV let you set a default input other than the home screen?

Well, the 3 other Hisense TVs I've owned and two current ones, would remain on any input that it was on previously and still be there upon the next power up.
