    Hello AV forum world,

    As above I've been searching to upgrade to a 4K TV BUT I'm not looking to pay upwards of £500

    There seems to be a good variation of 4K HDR TVs on the market for around this price at the moment but my primary use will be for gaming, specifically on an Xbox One X

    With this being said the basics I'm looking for are:

    Resolution: 3840 x 2160p

    Refresh rate: 60 Hz

    Color depth: 30 bits per pixel (10-bit)

    Pixel encoding: 4:2:0 or 4:2:2

    Wide Colour Gamut

    Decent Local Dimming

    I've come across the Hisense U7A (50U7AUK) which looks to be a good 'all round' TV but is it capable of running a good looking image with HDR through a console?

    Has anyone got the U7A + XB1X set-up? or are there any other suggestions for a similar price?

    Thanks in advance

    Dan

    Simply put, no - it’s not good enough. For good hdr in the 50” or under market you need to up your budget significantly. The Sony XF9005 and XG9005 are the best available.

    Next best would the Samsung NU8000 or Q6FN.

    Below the above you’re looking at the Samsung NU7400 or the Hisense you’ve mentioned. But these are relatively poor hdr performers, with only improved colours with hdr content. They’re just not bright enough otherwise.

    Yup, big difference between marketed HDR and real HDR.

    I'd suggest spending some time reading up about what makes a TV display HDR to a good standard so you get an idea the kind of limitations you'll get with a cheaper model.

    It may be the case its simply better just sticking with HD gaming until you can afford a decent HDR TV.
