Some of my favorite childhood memories involve watching TV with my dad. No doubt, the shows we watched — The Muppet Show, Mork & Mindy, The Dukes of Hazzard and Hee Haw — go a long way toward pegging my age. Unfortunately, my dad’s TV is nearly the same age. I was wondering if it was time to bring my folks into the 21st century with a , when I discovered that Hisense has marked down the price of a number of its models, including the Quantum Series.
The Hisense H8G incorporates, which generate outstanding color and give a run for their money at a much lower price. The sets also support , which can accurately darken just the parts of the screen that need it for deep blacks in shadow without biasing lit areas of the screen. I’ve rounded up Hisense Quantum Series sets in 55-, 65- and 75-inch sizes so you’ve got an option no matter what size room you want to place it in.
While OLED TVs do create a better image than quantum dot TVs — which are, after all, really just highly optimized LED sets — you may very well decide quantum sets like the H8G are a better value for the money. The Hisense 55-inch H8G features 700 nits of peak brightness and 90 local dimming zones. It also has Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos built in.
This 65-inch Hisense has all the goodies — quantum dots for bright and accurate colors, Dolby Vision HDR10+, HDR10 and HLG HDR color modes and Dolby Atmos sound. Like the 55-inch model, it also includes four HDMI inputs, a pair of USB ports and Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and Ethernet.
This is quantum dots writ large: 75 inches of 4K UHD goodness. It’s worth pointing out that these models all feature Android TV — we prefer the Roku platform, but these Android brains do give you access to streaming media and the TV can be voice-controlled via Alexa as well.
