The Hisense U7K LCD TV is a midrange price model that offers very good overall picture quality, making it suitable for movie and series watching. It's also very good for gaming, due to its low input lag and response time, and supports popular HDR formats like HDR10+ and Dolby Vision. However, its performance in very bright rooms is rated as just good, so it might not be the best choice if your viewing environment is usually flooded with sunlight. Additionally, while its sports content viewing is fair, it might not be the best option for fast-paced live sports content due to motion handling. Despite this, it has strong gaming performance and miniLED FALD VA screen technology, which contributes to better contrast, but it might have limited viewing angles. The TV comes with a 144Hz refresh rate and four HDMI ports, but lacks great built-in speakers, suggesting you might want to consider a sound system for better audio quality. Give Feedback

Ratings by Category

Gaming:
4.6
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.
Cartoons & Animaton:
4.6
The Hisense U7K is outstanding for watching cartoons and animation because it displays very vibrant and accurate colors straight out of the box, so the animated imagery appears lively and engaging. Additionally, the TV's color gamut and color volume are both very good, meaning it can reproduce a wide range of colors, essential for the vivid and varied hues often found in animated content.
News, Talk & Reality TV:
4.5
The Hisense U7K has very good upscaling, meaning it can make lower-resolution content like standard news broadcasts look sharper on its screen, and very good SDR brightness ensuring that news programs and talk shows are displayed brightly and clearly.
Movies & TV shows:
4.4
The Hisense U7K boasts a high contrast ratio and excellent black uniformity, making it ideal for creating deep black levels crucial for a rich movie experience. Its local dimming feature helps enhance this effect, although its colors out of the box and color volume are only good, not exceptional.
Bright Room:
4.4
The Hisense U7K is very good for watching TV in bright rooms due to its very good SDR brightness, meaning it can maintain a clear picture even when there's a lot of ambient light. Additionally, it has a very good reflections handling, which prevents light from windows or lamps from significantly washing out the screen image.
Overall Picture:
4.4
The Hisense U7K boasts a strong contrast which enhances the depth and sharpness of the picture, providing dark scenes with more realism, and it has an impressive color performance right out of the box, resulting in vivid and accurate colors without the need for immediate calibration.
Sports:
3.4
The Hisense U7K is fair for watching sports mainly because it has a limited viewing angle which can reduce the quality of the image when viewed from the side, and while its reflection handling is good, this might not be sufficient for very brightly lit rooms. The television's gray uniformity is decent, which is important for sports with large areas of uniform color, such as a football field, but it does not excel in this aspect.
