The Hisense U7H is an LCD TV with good overall picture quality and performs well for gaming and movies. It's priced in the lower midrange, provides good performance in dark rooms, and also in bright rooms to some extent. For sports content, the performance is rated as fair, suggesting that it might not be the best choice if you primarily watch fast-paced sports. It features local dimming to improve contrast and has good HDR brightness. The TV offers a 120Hz refresh rate and supports various HDR formats including HDR10+, Dolby Vision, and HLG. However, it has been rated as having poor quality control and quality assurance. Viewing angles are somewhat limited, which might be a concern if you often watch from the side. The model comes with 4 HDMI ports, but it doesn't come with great speakers, which could impact your audio experience unless you plan on using an external sound system. Give Feedback

Ratings by Category

News, Talk & Reality TV:
4.5
The Hisense U7H is ideal for watching news and talk shows because it has good upscaling capabilities, ensuring lower resolution content is displayed clearly, and its SDR brightness is very good, making the picture stand out even in well-lit rooms. Additionally, its performance right out of the box in terms of colors is fair, and with a good color gamut, it provides vibrant and accurate hues straight away without the need for professional calibration.
Cartoons & Animaton:
4.4
The Hisense U7H is considered good for watching cartoons and animations because it displays colors well straight out of the box, ensuring that animations look vivid and engaging immediately after setup. Its color gamut and color volume are also good, meaning it can produce a wide range of colors, which is essential for the typically vibrant palettes used in animated content.
Gaming:
4.3
PerfectRec’s gaming score measures a TV's performance when it comes to playing video games. It is based on several factors that can significantly impact the quality of the gaming experience, including screen response time, input lag, and refresh rate. Screen response time is a critical factor that determines how quickly the TV can transition from one color to the next, while input lag measures the delay between the gaming console output and the TV display. Refresh rate refers to the number of times per second that the TV displays a new frame, which can impact the smoothness of the gaming experience. The gaming score also takes into account two other features: local dimming in gaming mode, which can enhance contrast and picture quality, and black frame insertion, which can reduce screen brightness and create a smoother gaming experience.
Bright Room:
4.3
PerfectRec’s bright room score is a proprietary score of a television's performance in a bright environment, taking into account the following factors: screen brightness, reflections, and color volume. A higher score indicates better TV performance in bright conditions, minimizing glare and producing a more pleasant viewing experience. Brightness is crucial in how well the image displays in direct sunlight, and low reflections reduce glare. Color volume contributes to color vibrancy and depth, which are vital in a bright environment.
Overall Picture:
4.3
PerfectRec developed this proprietary score designed to provide an overall assessment of a display's visual performance. It is a comprehensive metric that takes into account many quantitative measures of picture quality, including: contrast ratio, color gamut, color volume, color accuracy, local dimming, gray uniformity, black uniformity, viewing angle, reflections (glare) and color calibration. By combining multiple factors, this score offers a more nuanced and comprehensive evaluation of a display's capabilities than a single factor.
Movies & TV shows:
4.2
The Hisense U7H provides a strong contrast and local dimming feature that enhance deep black levels and the pop of bright areas, which is essential for a cinematic experience in movies and TV shows. While its color volume is very good, allowing for a wide range of colors to be displayed effectively, the colors out of the box and viewing angles are just fair, which may require some adjustments for the best picture quality and might not provide the same quality from side angles.
Sports:
3.1
The Hisense U7H has a fair reflections score, indicating it might be distracting to watch sports in well-lit rooms due to reflections on the screen. Furthermore, the poor response time could lead to motion blur during fast-paced games, reducing clarity during high-speed plays.

Tom's guide

Christian de Looper | December 2022
"We loved the Hisense U7H. It was able to deliver an excellent all-around image quality in its price range. The TV excels at controlling its backlighting in a way that ensures you’ll never experience blooming to a level of being distracting, something that I was a little surprised to see given the lack of Mini LED. The TV doesn’t just get decently bright it offers relatively accurate color reproduction for a TV in this price range. The TV is being billed excellent for gaming."
