Hisense 65H8C: Large Display and Great Connectivity

Hisense 65H8C

In this Hisense 65H8C review, the features of the TV from the H8 series are emphasized. It’s about the entry-level model that hit the market in 2017. This 4K Android-based model is noticeable for a wide range of inputs and outputs (4 HDMIs, 3 USB ports, 2 video inputs, and optical digital audio output) to hook up many devices simultaneously. However, consider that only 2 of 4 offered HDMI ports work at 60Hz (other 2 inputs work at only 30Hz) to plug the priority gadgets into the higher speed ports.

The TV’s picture quality is good even in dark scenes since such a budget unit surprisingly supports high contrast ratio, local dimming, and motion interpolation. Besides, the 65H8C plays 4K over DLNA flawlessly. Colors are accurate with a little tweaking. The screen is too reflective to place this TV in front of the window. The gray uniformity has a dirty screen effect when the viewer watches sports.

One of the most outstanding Hisense 65H8C specs is an advanced tech that automatically changes picture and audio quality depending on the video content.

Besides, there are plenty of settings to adjust the picture in accordance with the environment. For example, it’s possible to set energy-saving mode or choose settings for dark rooms, gaming or watching sports. The input lag is low that’s why video games look extremely crisp. This model even supports the PS4 Pro and Xbox One S HDR capability. However, the input lag can grow up to 67.3ms in 4K resolution.

The built-in speakers are loud enough for a small room. In addition, one can opt for a relevant setup if the TV is wall mounted. It helps spread the sound in an appropriate way. However, good speakers would be useful to get louder sound and more bass for larger spaces.

It comes with several dozens of pre-loaded apps. The Anyview Cast app for the Hisense 65H8C TV allows casting from devices with Android OS (portable music players, tablets, etc). However, Samsung smartphones are not compatible with it.

The Hisense 65H8C calibration is easy and even intuitive. It’s available in a single click and looks like a sidebar on the website. It’s clear and well categorized to make adjustments for the network, picture, inputs, sound, etc. Besides, all sorts of settings are accumulated within a single menu while many other TVs have several of them.

The TV is flat and plastic with the silver finish at the bottom and on the legs. This unit comes with thin borders and wide stand. It has some ports on the side, but some of them are on the rear panel, making them hard-to-reach inputs if the TV is wall mounted.

Hisense 65H8C pros and cons

Pros

  • It has Amazon Alexa onboard to control other smart devices that are compatible with this system.
  • Customizable home page to provide fast access to favorite apps on the main screen.
  • No ads on the TV’s platform.

Cons

  • Picture quality decreases at the slightest angle.
  • If such ultra-smooth motion as soap opera effect is preferred, the picture judders and might be choppy in some scenes.
