The Hisense A65K is often a more budget-friendly option compared to the Samsung CU7000. If you primarily watch movies or TV shows, the Hisense has slightly higher overall performance in those areas, including better color accuracy. However, the Samsung has a significant edge in brighter rooms due to its superior reflection handling. For gaming, both TVs provide similar experiences with no advanced gaming features. Both TVs lack wide color gamuts for HDR content, so if you're looking for more vibrant colors in HDR movies or games, neither will excel in that regard. If budget is your main concern and you mostly watch in dimmer environments, the Hisense could serve you well, but for mixed usage in bright rooms, the Samsung might be the better choice.

Stratos Kampourogiannis | September 2023
"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 Hisense

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.

About Samsung
