 i've never heard of this brand.. until i saw the tv today at a local costco store

 

I'm not sure about the quality.. and why the price so cheap..

 

but the picture difference is clear!!  i stare at the 4K tv and then glance over and look the the samsung LED.. .. it's like going HD and going back watching dvd on your hdtv.. kind of reaction for me..

 

anyone know about this brand? is it reliable?  Hisense...-- a chinese brand...

Wow the price is very low on that 4K. That's how TV's are every year with their prices. Also, I've never heard of the brand before.

There are a couple of models of 50" 4K TVs on Amazon for under $1,000.  Same question on quality, though, as they are off-brands.

For TVs, you get what you pay for.

This company is not tier 1 (Sony, LG, Samsung, Panasonic) or Tier 2 (VIZIO, Sharp, Toshiba, etc).

I don't even think they're tier 3 (Haier, Westinghouse, Insignia, etc)

Never heard of them

Yeah, I would expect disappointment, especially for gaming.

60Hz refresh rate.  You want at least 120Hz.  It's noticeable.

 

This would be a great TV for watching lovely flowers glide slowly past the camera on the HGTV channel.  Not so great for sports or gaming.

LCD was 60hz.. i have one... samsung 32 in..  when i can't use my 46 in i'm using it instead to play games.. honestly i didn't notice any difference..

 

 

anyway.. an unknown brand.. probably will only last 1 yr and then the color will become black and white??

 

 

$1500.. for a 4k tv is cheap... it's cheaper than a sony or samsung  55in LED tv!!

costco has it.. so it means you have 90 days full refund  and 2 yrs free replacement included in the purchased price..  they have square trade warranty if you want 1-3 year warranty additional.. so you can have up to 5 years warranty on the tv..  

 

 

but honestly.. what are you going to do with a 4k tv?  since most stuffs are only 1080p..  going to upscale everything ?? :/

 

not worth it..

I'd get it, but beware the input lag. I would play games on it a lot and I'll see if there's discernible input lag.

Scaling 720P or 1080P to the panel's native resolution (4K) may be intensive, and if the scaler chip is slow it will introduce input lag (it is bad enough on some 1080p TVs even).

Make sure it has game mode and that you can disable all the image enhancements. And a good return policy so that you can immediately return it if gaming issues arise.
