Hisense H9G 4K UHD TV review: Excellent color and HDR performance for the price

    With this yr’s H9G, Hisense continues its pattern of delivering greater than competent TVs at greater than cheap costs. While this newest revision presents comparatively delicate enhancements over final yr’s H9F, that’s merely making what was already an excellent TV higher.

    Design and specs

    The H9G sports activities a 10-bit, 3840 x 2160 (4K UHD) panel with array backlighting and is rated for 700 nits of peak brightness. That permits it to do justice to the Dolby Vision and HDR10 content material it helps. Google Assitant is on board, and the Android TV working system means plenty of good performance by way of apps. The H9G I examined was a 55-inch class (54.5-inches diagonally); a 65-inch class H9G can be out there for $950.

    This assessment is a part of TechHive’s protection of the best smart TVs, the place you will discover evaluations of competing merchandise, plus a purchaser’s information to the options it’s best to contemplate when buying.

    Physically, the 55-incher measures 48.5 inches broad, 28.2 inches tall, and 3.9 inches thick. Make that 10.2 inches thick with the mid-mounted legs. There’s a 400mm x 300mm VESA mount level (proven beneath) for wall hanging.


    The again of the Hisense H9G. Why the corporate determined to cover the ports (they’re positioned the place that grey rectangle is on the right-hand aspect of this image) is a thriller.

    The H9G is a reasonably customary design with the electronics housed in a bustle on the decrease again of the rear of the unit. It has a skinny bezel, however in particular person, it’s not fairly as skinny as the photographs make it appear. If such issues trouble you, watch extra compelling content material.

    The H9G’s ports embrace 4 HDMI and legacy inputs.

    When it involves connectivity, the H9G has the typical consumer greater than lined. There are 4 HDMI ports (ARC is supported, however not eARC), two USB ports, coax for an over-the-air antenna or cable/satellite tv for pc set-top field, plus RCA inputs for stereo audio and composite video, in addition to a Toslink optical digital audio and 3.5mm headphone outputs. The Wi-Fi is 802.11ac and there’s a Bluetooth radio onboard.

    The H9G is solidly constructed, and due to its comparatively thick decrease portion, it doesn’t exhibit a variety of flex. Despite that, it weighs in rather less than 40 kilos. I had no points wrangling it myself, however you would possibly need to enlist a buddy simply to be secure.

    Interface and distant

    The H9G is an Android TV with all of the goodness that now entails. The crash-happy Android TV working system of some years in the past is gone—the multimedia app that I used to play movies saved on USB sticks was rock strong. Indeed, I’ve gone from hating Android TV to being fairly keen on it. And geez, if you need apps, you possibly can’t beat it.

    Hisense’s Android house display screen will not be almost as busy as this exhibits. Apparently, Netflix contributed funds for this picture.

    The H9G’s distant is generic in design, albeit environment friendly the place the rubber meets the street: your fingers. The keypad, rocker cursor and choice buttons, and particularly the devoted transport controls (play/pause, fast-forward, and so forth.) are sensibly laid out. There are additionally 4 particular operate buttons (RGYB) that allow the distant to manage cable/satellite tv for pc TV set-top bins and different gadgets. Voice instructions by way of Google Assistant are additionally supported, for individuals who like speaking to their tech. If you favor Alexa, you will want an outboard good speaker or the Alexa app in your cell gadget.
