Considering your options, if keeping costs down is a priority, the Hisense A65K might be a suitable choice, as it's typically less expensive than the Amazon 4-Series. Despite its lower price, the Hisense offers better color accuracy out of the box and a higher overall color volume, making it a good fit for those who enjoy cartoons and animation. However, for a daily-use TV, particularly for viewing in bright rooms, the Amazon 4-Series has a slightly better bright room performance. The Amazon TV is more costly and may not justify the price difference unless the better handling of reflections and slightly better uniformity in brightness across the screen are essential for your viewing habits. Both TVs have their drawbacks as they offer poor gaming and sports viewing experiences, and neither excels in a dark room setting. If you need a TV primarily for video game play or watching fast-paced sports, you may want to consider other models. Give Feedback

Jim Martin | May 2023
"The attraction here is that the 4-Series uses Amazon’s Fire TV interface. Picture quality is good but unexceptional. At the discounted prices, which can seemingly be had regularly, they are better value."

"The A65K proved to be a rather capable TV that works great within its extreme limitations that its price dictates. It has great contrast, very low input lag and good color coverage. Add Google TV and a low price in the mix and you have an excellent low budget offering."

About Amazon

Amazon, the largest online retailer in North America, has forged partnerships with TCL and Hisense to produce white-label TVs incorporating their Fire OS software. These Amazon-branded TVs typically compete in the low-end and mid-range segments, offering compelling price points. Leveraging their strong reputation, Amazon has swiftly built brand trust in the TV market despite being relatively new to it. To enhance their popularity, these TVs integrate features from the Amazon ecosystem, including Alexa, providing users with a seamless and interconnected TV experience.

About Hisense

Hisense, a Chinese TV manufacturer, entered the US market in approximately 2011 and has since acquired TV divisions from various companies such as Toshiba, Sharp, Hitachi, and NEC. Currently ranking as the fourth largest vendor in terms of sales volume, Hisense aims to capture a wide range of TV budget segments. They offer exceptional value with TVs that often outperform their competitors at similar price points, making them a compelling choice for consumers. In the US, they use Google TV as their smart TV software which provides the largest app selection and a very modern user interface, however it is not as user friendly as the software from other vendors.
