4 times resolution of Full HD, four times the detail. With Toshiba 4K TV, you can enjoy uncompromisingly crisp, clear visuals for a fully immersive, professional theater quality.
Wide Color Gamut
Delivers an expanded spectrum of color that TV's with smaller color pallets can't match, thus providing a more colorful and vibrant picture.
Full Array Backlighting w/ Local Dimming
This technology separates the LEDs into smaller, more tightly controlled lighting areas giving the television more control over the parts of the picture that need more or less lighting without affecting the other areas.
Native 120Hz Refresh Rate (Motion Rate 480)
Experience incredible clarity in motion with a 480 Motion Rate panel, giving you smooth, fluid movement from all of your fast-action content.
HDR Format: Dolby Vision , HDR, HDR10+
Transforms your TV into an entertainment powerhouse. The image technology from cinemas, now brought together in the home, provide amazing realism that you'll see, hear, and feel like never before.
Ultra-essential PQ Technology w/ Regza 4K Engine
Ultra HD 4K Panel expresses picture quality four times as detailed in pixel as Full HD. Regza 4K Engine optimizes every picture detail and color output to achieve "real as it is" picture quality.
Auto Low Latency Game Mode (ALLM)
Enjoy a better gaming experience. In Game Mode, input lag is significantly improved, so your commands from the controller are virtually instantaneous on the screen. The M550 is ready for the whatever the latest generation gaming consoles can throw at it.
DTS® Virtual Audio: X™
DTS Virtual: X technology is a scalable and versatile advanced post processing package that creates an immersive audio experience by virtualizing height content over traditional stereos.
Press & Ask Alexa
Use the included Alexa Voice Remote to manage TV power, volume, navigation, playback, and input switching. Or just press the microphone button and say, "Find dramas," and Alexa will show you search results from a central catalog of hundreds of integrated apps and channels.

I'll reply to myself here in case this would benefit anyone else:

I called Toshiba for information on the 65 and 75 inch TVs. They referred me to a different Hisense number that was not on either website. I called them, and after about a 25minute hold, the rep said both panels have the following unlisted specifications:

Up to 600 nits peak brightness
48 Local Dimming Zones
VA Panels (and not IPS)
120hz

Hopefully this is accurate and helps some other folks out. It looks like an exact mixture of a U6G and U7G with an odd number of dimming zones compared to the two.
Great specifications for the price. But most folks who bought it from Bestbuy is having audio issues when switching sources. Looks like rebranded Hisense U7G. If below article is true, it seems to be a really good deal

https://www.reddit.com/r/Hisense/...isense_tv/

Also seems like the panel is 120Hz but HDMI does not support 120Hz. Most Xbox and PS5 users would be disappointed
I just bought it and love it so far. Great contrast, good sound for tv speakers. I love that it has hands free control and VRR. I have LG C1 in my other room and have zero complaints about this TV. 499 is a steal for this TV, IMO. Thanks OP!! Applause

Do we happen to know which panel type the 65 and 75 inch uses: VA or IPS? Also, do we have an official peak brightness value and the total number of dimming zones on the 65 and 75 inch models?

Why is this deal not getting more attention? 499 for a 65 inch TV (399 for the 55 inch) for a TV with local dimming and a 120hz native panel (according to Toshiba's website). Sounds insane to me. I just wish there was a rtings review of this....

I picked up the U7G last month for 600. Had an "accident" and the panel cracked. Going to pick up the Toshiba today. I'll report back with comparison.

I read that the smooth motion (soap opera effect) option resets to on every time the TV is turned off. Are you running into this bug?

Looking to add a 55" TV to my covered outdoor deck so we can watch while lounging in the pool. This or the Hisense U6GR5 from Costco, which are both same price?

Or should I spend the extra $50 and either the Hisense U6G or the TCL 5 series that have Google TV?

Budget is $500. Really struggling with this decision, even with Rtings reviews

On the box it says native 120hz, super bright, sports and panning scenes look nice to me if nice/high quality sources used. Did not experience the soap settings bug. I like the hand-free Alexa, HDMI control/CEC works great with my 2014 Yamaha receiver every time I say turn the tv on/off. Amazon tv can buffer the live antenna channels with about 12G usable memory. Nice metal feet with subtle metal bezel around the screen, Airplay is a plus. Made by Hisense.

Viewing angle not the best, but still makes me happy. Looks like 55" has about 32-ish dimming zones so blooming is noticeable in dark but if you just add a little light to the room (I use some cheap dimmable Feit lights from Costco) you should view a nice picture with good contrast; super bright and deep blacks.

Overall, I like the tv considering the price and the performane.

No 120hz on HDMI ports. Does not allow Netflix to pass thru to sound bar. Somehow they put a 120 hz panel with essentiallly 60 hz software. Kinda odd
