      Steve, thanks for the nice review. It seems like a very nice TV considering the price.

      Would you consider the cheaper Sony to be at the same level of this Hisense? By that I mean regarding uniformity, colour and image quality in general.

      On the latest podcast, they say the XF90 is better.

      Great Review Steve. Its impressive the amount of zones they have on this TV. As you said though its not all about zones but about how they control it. It makes me wonder what the Samsung would be like if it had 1000 zones. I would imagine the reason other companies don't push a huge amount of zones is cost so its impressive what Hisense have managed here. I would imagine its because they cut costs in other areas. I feel like 1000 zones or so would be a sweet spot for a high end LCD especially if they have the processing and software to use that to the best of its ability. At least until Mini LED comes along which at the moment is too costly according to Samsung.

      Disappointing that it is an 8bit+FRC panel , maybe that accounts for the muted colours. I wonder if the 65 inch panel is better?

      1000 zones is the reason why the 100" ZD9 is so impressive, we'll never see that on smaller consumer displays from Sony or Samsung, 107 zones on the Z9F is why it's so reasonably priced.

      I didn't review the XF90, but Phil was very impressed by it.

      Seems like Hisense really aren't moving forward with their refinements year on year - on specs this should absolutely murder the XF90 and be right up there with the best ...

      I don't believe that true, I think Hisense have been delivering improvements year-on-year. The problem is the U9A has the most zones, the widest colour gamut, and the brightest panel of any TV released to date. Delivering all that effectively is a big ask for any manufacturer, and Hisense are probably guilty of trying to run before they can walk at the higher end of the market.

      provided it uses native 10-bit panels in its high-end displays like other brands ! ;)
