Difference between H8C and H7C.

The H7 series and below omit full-array local dimming, so expect a less intense contrast ratio. The H7 does, however, support HDR content. Note the huge price jump as you move up from the 55 to 65-inch version, and ask yourself if eyeglasses might not be the better investment.
Since this an H6 model, I can only speculate it has less features than H7.

Target still has Hisense 50" h6c 4k TV for 249 + additional 15% off at checkout. No hdr but for under 250 you get a 4k 50" set! Anyone have one of these?

Decent TV but do not trust that viewing angle spec. I have the H8C and it degrades terribly after 10 degrees. So unless you are sitting right in front of it it really takes a hit. The smart features are ok and work as should but a Roku, Fire TV, Shield would be better.

1) Do you have a sound bar? Make/model?
2) Any experience with Hisense warranty service?
3) Did you calibrate sound/picture? If not, why?
4) Anything to add/subtract from this review? http://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/hisense/h8c

This is a different model...and lower end it seems
Why would that review apply?

I think this is the same model that Target had on BF for $249

I wouldn't count on the 8c review either.

I'm not sure if I would trust it as a pc monitor or for low input lag.

It's something you will have to test out at home and return if you don't like at this point.

However at a 300 dollar price point for a 50 inch 4k tv, it's obviously meant to give people a taster.

The bigger question is would a 300 dollar 1080p TV be better in picture and quality?

Certain TV"s have their niches.

The Vizio d40u-d1 (d-series as whole) which is becoming increasingly difficult to find is one of the best FPS TV monitors you can get by sacrificing chromo in the process. But on rtings, you can see most of the tv's have a decently low input lag if you have 4:2:0 chromo. If you look at the samsungs on rtings, they have 20 second input lag which is pretty good.

Keep in mind fast twitch reaction is around 10 ms. So when you build in increments of 10 ms, you miss a potential action.

The olympics consider reaction time before 10 ms a false start to keep things in perspective. Also, the response time needs to be short enough to allow the input lag to matter. Lastly, the refresh time also makes a big deal. When it comes to your slower runner, if the screen refreshes at 60 hrtz. It is refreshing at 16 ms.

So take a 16 ms refresh rate, the input lag should be below that to matter, then the p2p response time also need to be below that.

When you look at 120 hrtz monitors, you have 8 ms screen refreshes.

Input lag won't affect the refresh rate or p2p response time. Just gives an inherent delay to the information getting to you. So for games that require immediate time sensitive input, like rts, mobas and fps, you want a low input lag. For games that are turn based like civ, hearthstone, and pve type of environments in mmorpgs or arpgs, input lag doesn't mean much.

If you play karaoke, you will notice input lag for sure around 20-40 ms.

I got a Hisense 43" 4k on black friday as a lightning deal for $199 and I was extremely surprised with the quality of the picture and functionality of the tv overall. The viewing angles aren't great so if that matters to you then I don't know if this would be worth it if it's like mine. We mostly just sit on our couch and there's no issue there. I have a gaming pc so I can't speak for lag but we do have a pc hooked up to it and everything seems fairly dandy.

That's the model I have, I know nothing about their naming system so I don't know how relevant my experience is.

Hard to say what their naming convention is.

Since rtings did a 8C. I've seen the 7C in a few other places on sale as well. First time I came across the 6C.

On the samsung sale the difference between a 6290 and a 6300 is a matter of bluetooth functionality and a smart remote.

I wonder what makes something 6 vs 7 vs 8 c.

From what I can see on the Hisense website, the H7 adds casting from another device and media playback via USB and the cloud. The H8 adds local dimming for the backlighting.

If those are really the only differences, I think the H6 would be fine for most people.

Looking at a post I found somewhere, H6 doesn't have HDR support as well, which is expected at this price point.

I think the H7's are also 120hz and H6 is 60hz, at least as far as I can tell on amazon listings.

EDIT: NVM, scratch that, I'm dumb.

I don't agree - we've really only used Netflix but it's as fast and fluid as any other device I've tried.

I don't really use their platform for what I need to do for the most part.

I have a dedicated media server both software wise and hardware wise for most everything I need to stream. I think most of the "smart" stuff has traditionally been gimicky for me on all TV's.

I have chromecast / roku / wdtv / ps4...

Granted, I can see how the "smart" aspect of the TV is a good marketing.

Some on SD treat TV specs like they are more important than life itself. Others like me just want a good picture with clear colors and this more than does the trick. Picked it up last week with the BB VCO offer and a little extra back from e b a t e s so it was under this price delivered in two days. Tremendous upgrade over my Vizio E series...but then again I just watch things like football, movies, Netflix, and TV shows so my opinion is just that of a regular average TV watcher who really enjoys this set and not an opinion from a TV demi-god who can tell you all about hypotheticals and spec numbers, so it's a great TV for a regular viewer imo
