About this deal

As feared, Hisense’s decision to use an IPS type of panel inside the 65U8HQ prevents it from achieving the high-value hero status it might otherwise have attained. Picture quality just so much better than anything else near the price and unbelievably better than the standard 4K or UHD TV 's. Watching Pacific Rim (again) via the Panasonic UB820 4K player, the Hisense delivers on the film’s expressive colours and sense of scale. As Jaeger and Kaiju go fist-to-fist, there’s an intensity to colours and a good degree of accuracy, too. The image isn’t as cinematic as the Panasonic TX-65HX940, but it’s striking nonetheless. The main HDR formats are repped in HDR10, HLG, HDR10+ and Dolby Vision. Hisense says the 65U8QFTUK can hit a peak brightness of 1000 nits – and it can certainly go bright. HDR content is given a punchy, gleaming, near three-dimensional presentation at times. You are not permitted to transfer, assign or otherwise dispose of this EULA which is personal to you, or any of your rights or obligations arising under this EULA without the prior written consent of Hisense.

The 65U8HQ is the flagship 65-inch TV from Hisense’s 2022 LCD range. A status it earns, chiefly, thanks to its use of a Mini LED light engine.

As mentioned previously, the U8G is probably the most well-rounded television from Hisense feature-wise, but the excellent picture quality is the main draw.

You’re not going to get this level of performance from the bigger TV brands at this screen size or price. The delivery in Standard mode is deliberately flat and balanced, and while that works for everyday TV viewing, films demand more dynamism. The Theatre setting offers a bigger sound, but it isn’t one that escapes the confines of the TV. The setting also gives dialogue a slight boxed-in feel. Get to know the settings. It is here that you can change colour, sound and things like DOLBY ATMOS etc.

Hisense 65U8QFTUK features – None of the new headline features, but these arguably won’t matter to most

Now switch on and follow the instructions, if you are a techie you can change all the bits you want. The Hisense’s Ultra Smooth Motion feature is improved, mirroring the gains found in the step-down 65U7QFTUK. It won’t bother class-leaders Sony and Panasonic, but it is done with greater confidence. Streaming Everton vs Manchester City on Prime Video, while an element of judder remains, it’s watchable. There’s little difference between the Smooth, Standard and Clear options, and I’m not sure what the Film option achieves since all it does is add stutter. We test every TV we review thoroughly over an extended period of time. We use industry standard tests to compare features properly. We’ll always tell you what we find. We never, ever, accept money to review a product. Where to start with this larger model? Build quality is just as solid as the 55-inch set, the bezel is slim enough to have minimal impact on the screen, and the V-shaped pedestal has a bigger footprint – even more so at this size.

The Hisense U8G is a 4K TV that supports high dynamic range ( HDR) content in Dolby Vision, HDR10, HDR10+, and hybrid log gamma (HLG). It has a 120Hz refresh rate and supports automatic low latency mode (ALLM), variable refresh rate (VRR), and AMD FreeSync. The performance in the 55-inch model doesn’t scale up as well to the 65-inch unit. Although there’s Dolby Atmos support for a more spacious presentation, for a screen of this size a soundbar is a must if the audio is to match the visuals the Hisense 65U8QFTUK can produce. Hisense 65U8QFTUK conclusion Hisense hasn’t pursued any of the new-fangled TV features that have come to prominence recently, so there’s no VRR, ALLM, HFR or eARC; no Filmmaker mode, no Dolby Vision IQ or Netflix Calibrated mode.

There are added smarts in Chromecast support and built-in Alexa. Although there’s none of the new advanced gaming features, the 65U8QFTUK marks itself out as an excellent set for gamers with older consoles. I recorded latency at 1080p/60Hz at 14.1ms, and you can feel the smoothness in the inputs for a game, such as Project Cars 3, which requires precise responses.

The 65U8HQ’s colours can look great from time to time, too. Especially with Dolby Vision sources, the extra scene by scene metadata seemingly helps to bring the best out of the 65U8HQ’s Quantum Dot system, delivering a winning mix for the set’s money of tonal balance and vibrancy. While some bright content holds up well outside the Dolby Vision world, though, some tones can look a touch flat without the Dolby Vision ‘help’, while relatively warm presets such as the Filmmaker Mode can look a touch jaundiced. The 65U8HQ has enough premium tools at its disposal to potentially fit in perfectly with a much higher echelon of TV than we’re accustomed to seeing from Hisense. It sounds good outside of its Dolby Atmos mode, and there are times – in light rooms with uniformly punchy HDR content – where the TV’s brightness and Quantum Dot colours really deliver the goods.
