Each has their plus points. The Hisense is £100 more after doing a quick search with main retailers for the same 65-inch size, I'm sure if you shop around you could get both for less.Of course, you can only review what's in front of you but 8/10 seems generous for this when you consider the Hisense 65U7QF is marginally cheaper and scores the same.
Are they both similar performers?? The specs suggest the Hisense should be knocking this edge-lit TCL out the park (especially with HDR) but your review paints a different picture.

HDR is slightly better on the Hisense in terms of brightness and specular highlights, but blooming is an issue as are crushed blacks. The edge-lit C815K is not as dynamic but is balanced and has a decent wide colour performance.
The TCL has slightly better motion and Android TV 9 which is superior to VIDAA on the Hisense. In most other respects they are very similar on features and performance. So they score similarly. Reading the reviews should fill in the gaps.
Is a projector not practical? £1000 gets some very impressive 4k (ok pseudo but it's still very good) results.Are there no inexpensive, big tvs that are good for films in the dark?
That‘s all I watch. No broadcast tv, no daylight, just a dark room.
Thanks for the review of my TCL we bought from AO much of what you said is correct you have sit in front to appreciate the true colours and blacks
we placed ours on a wall which does not help the bass which is placed at the back of the set.the android apps i’m getting used to seeing’s as i’m ios based . l have set mine at standard mode .but i’m still,tinkering with the settings
overall i’m well pleased with the tv at half the price i would have paid.
