Good choice Hisense 50H8G budget-friendly TV- Review

The Hisense 50H8G has very decent build quality, but doesn’t have a premium build like other high-end TVs. The metal on the back and the plastic parts are solid. There is a bit of swing when pushed, but in general, there are no obvious problems.

The Hisense 50H8G is a great TV for most uses. It is ideal for watching movies in dark rooms thanks to its excellent contrast ratio and its full local attenuation function. The HDR experience is a bit limiting, as this TV may not be bright enough to stand out. However, it has a good response time and a very low input delay for games, and is a good choice to watch TV shows or sports. It can be bright enough to combat glare, but the accuracy of the image is quickly lost when viewed from the side.Hisense 50H8GThe Hisense 50H8G is a very good and inexpensive TV that should please most people for any kind of use. It has a VA panel, so it is able to produce deep blacks when seen in the dark, and has a full-array local dimming function. Unfortunately, its viewing angles are poor and the accuracy of the image is quickly lost when viewed from one side. It has proper reflex handling and becomes bright enough to combat the glow, and if you also want to play on it, it has a good response time and an incredibly low input delay. Although this TV can display a wide range of colors for HDR content, it is not bright enough in that mode to highlight. On the plus side, it has built Android TV as an operating system, so you get a lot of apps available for download. Overall, it’s a nice update on its predecessor, the Hisense H8F.

Hisense 50H8G is ideal for watching movies. It is able to display deep blacks and has a full-matrix local attenuation function that further delves into blacks. In addition, 1080p content expands almost as much as native 4k content. Unfortunately, the TV has some uniformity issues as there is some dirty screen effect in the middle, which is evident during panoramic shooting.Hisense 50H8GThe Hisense 50H8G is ideal for video games. It has a good response time, a black frame insertion feature to help reduce movement blurring and an incredibly low input delay in ‘Game’ mode. Its refresh rate is limited to 60 Hz and does not support any variable refresh frequency technology, but it is a great choice for darkroom games as it can produce deep blacks.Photo:Hisense

The Hisense 50H8G TV is high quality for HDR games, mainly due to its great gaming performance. It has a perfect response time, a very low input delay, and is able to produce deep blacks when seen in the dark. Its HDR performance is somewhat limited, because although it can display a wide range of colors, it doesn’t get bright enough in that mode to highlight.

The fusion of Dolby Vision HDR images and Dolby Atmos audio technologies creates an immersive home theater experience.
Hisense ULED™ technology and Hi View chipset intuitively increase image quality and performance.

Hisense 50H8G is a very good choice to use as a PC monitor. It has a low input delay and is able to display the appropriate 4:4:4 chrome, which is important for reading text. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have wide viewing angles, so it’s not ideal for placing in a meeting room, but if you choose to use it as a PC monitor, you don’t have the risk of permanent burning.
