In these discussions you try to convince your readers that something is broken. And why is it not so in Germany? And why in the German review it is written literally:

''Conclusion
In short, we have never seen such a brilliant, rich and colorful picture in this price range. And this is still the most important argument for deciding to buy a TV''


I know who to trust. And I trust Gary Winston Lineker , but not the avforums.
And yes, it's just a discussion about a TV. I've watched your other ratings and I'm looking forward to the next ones.
I hope then it is not something else.

No one is trying to convince anyone. You can believe what you want and others can believe what they want. Its highly subjective.

You are clearly happy with the TV, so I'm not sure why you are still posting in this thread. You have a valid point, but there's no point arguing. The point is any motion is subjective, and just because a review mentions it, does not mean everyone will.

As you say, other reviews didn't mention it, so probably they didn't see it. We have seen one positive review in the UK (AVforums) and one negative (HDTVtest). Overall its very positive given the price.

And in case you didn't notice the TV was recommended by AVforums, so I have no idea why you don't trust its opinion.

In my opinion there is no better TV in that price range. In Croatia 930€ with 5 year warranty (65U8QF). This is 2020 year model and undoubtly there is space for improvement that I'm pretty sure is coming with future updates. There is no perfect TV even in much higher price range.

On paper it's an incredible deal. Just a shame these awesome specs are let down by poor implementation.

Still a decent tv even with it's faults though and I'll probably keep mine for the time being.
Gaming is good enough and enjoyable, plus I now have an Nvidia Shield hooked up so I no longer have to deal with the (quite frankly) crappy UI and smart features.

Has anyone played fifa or pes on this tv?

What is it like when you do a long ball. On my current bang average 4 year old 4k tv it does well. However, on someone elses more modern tv, there was noticable blur when doing quick long passes.

Read the review to see the samples out of the box accuracy and to determine whether you want to pay for pro calibration.

One thing is for sure, even if the settings were copied from the review or a different TV, you wouldn't get the same results on your TV. Every TV is different, and pro calibration would need to be performed on your TV.

I think all peoples talk about not TV Calibration, talk about best settings for SDR|HDR...
Because TV can't normally display a picture with a moving car or fast approach, distance of objects -so...
Need test and answers what the best for :

For Console I switch off all, except (adaptive Contrast and backlight )

I also picked up this TV from Costco, the 65” for £839 and must say that it’s the best value for money TV I’ve ever had! I’ve had my fair share of mid range TVs over the last few years and while I’m not an expert at all, I’m very pleased with this purchase. If you are like me, a bit of a geek but not completely anal about the small details, go for it.

It’s bright.
Settings out of the box are very good for the average guy.
Sound is good.
Menu is very simple to use.
Blacks are very good when upgrading from a normal LCD tv (TCL DP748)
Uses my 4K Apple TV at it’s full potential with Dolby vision!

Only issue I have at the moment... The setup for Alexa crashes and cannot figure out how to go past “step 3” of the setup.

I'm not sure what you mean, but if you refer to motion settings you should try different presets and see which works for you. The film preset is certainly best used for films, but you must turn it off if you are using TV since it has a problem in this mode with 50fps material.

But some people complain about motion problems with the TV, so it may be undefeatable without an update. If you have a problem, contact Hisense for a resolution as they have already given other users an updated firmware which some have reported helps with the TVs problems.

Then start TV show - on screen arrive cars, moment then bloodshot eyes. Try Film, Clear - same...

Hi guys, we have the Q8 in Australia which is a very similar TV. I've seen a few people mention the screen black out issue and it's actually been fixed with the Q8 via a FRC update not OTA - have you guys contact hisense about this? Possibly a fix is available for U8QF.

Yes.

However, Hisense doesn't overcharge as much as other manufacturers at launch and discount less as time goes on.

And from reading the review, while it's a good TV at the price, I'd rather pay the same for a superior Samsung or Sony that's currently £1500 in 9 months time if I didn't need a new TV now.

Just the other week ago you could pick up a Panasonic 55" OLED for £950 which was £1799 at launch. I know what I'd rather have.
Where was this Panasonic that you speak of?

Not sure, but its not uncommon to have problems with built in apps more than the tuner. Could be the app that is in the wrong. Try using the app or website separately.
