The Hisense U6K is an LCD TV that comes at a lower midrange price, offering good overall picture quality and very good performance for cartoons and animation. Its contrast is rated as high, which is great for dark room viewing, but it has a fair bright room score, indicating it might not be the best option for very well-lit environments. The TV handles upscaling well, making lower-resolution content look good. However, its gaming performance is only fair, meaning it may not be ideal for serious gamers. Its sound quality is rated as good, but it doesn't have particularly great speakers, so an external sound system might be desired for an immersive experience. Additionally, the U6K supports mini LED with FALD VA screen sub-type and various HDR formats including HDR10+, Dolby Vision, and HLG, but its motion processing is just average and has a low refresh rate of 60Hz. With its 4 HDMI ports, it's versatile for connecting multiple devices, and it's also suitable for use as a monitor. Give Feedback

Ratings by Category

Cartoons & Animaton:
4.4
The Hisense U6K is very good for watching cartoons and animation because it displays accurate colors right out of the box and has a wide color gamut, ensuring a vibrant picture. Although color volume and gray uniformity also contribute positively, they are somewhat less influential in the overall quality for this type of content.
News, Talk & Reality TV:
4.2
The Hisense U6K is good for watching news and TV programs because it has strong upscaling capabilities, ensuring that lower-resolution content looks clear, and its colors out of the box are accurately displayed without the need for calibration, which is great for viewing standard dynamic range content like typical broadcasts.
Overall Picture:
4.2
The Hisense U6K (LCD) excels in picture quality due to its strong contrast, which provides deep blacks and bright whites, and its commendable color performance straight out of the box, including a wide color gamut and good color volume that enhance HDR content.
Movies & TV shows:
4.1
The Hisense U6K is well-suited for movies and cinematic TV due to its high contrast ratio that enhances the depth of blacks, ensuring dark scenes look their best. Plus, the TV's local dimming feature helps to improve black uniformity, which is critical for a consistent image quality across the screen during dark scenes.
Bright Room:
4.0
The Hisense U6K is considered fair for bright room viewing because, while its SDR brightness is good enough to combat some ambient light, it struggles with intense glare due to a fair reflection handling capability. Additionally, its contrast and color volume, which are somewhat important for picture quality, are not outstanding, which can affect the overall viewing experience in well-lit environments.
Gaming:
3.7
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.
Sports:
3.1
The Hisense U6K is considered fair for watching sports because its motion processing is only adequate, making it a better fit for slower-paced content rather than fast-moving sports, and its handling of reflections is also rated as fair, which means it might not perform optimally in bright, well-lit environments. Additionally, while its gray uniformity is somewhat important, it has not been singled out as a significant issue in this context.
