If you often watch TV in a bright room, the Hisense U8K's higher brightness might serve you better than the LG C1. However, if you're a movie enthusiast or enjoy gaming, the LG C1's OLED technology offers perfect blacks and better viewing angles. The Hisense U8K is less expensive, which could make it a smart choice if you're looking to save money without a significant compromise in quality. On the other hand, the LG C1, while costlier, excels with its processing for motion, color accuracy, and response times, making it a strong choice for immersive gaming and cinematic experiences.

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.

About LG

LG, a prominent TV brand from Korea, has played a significant role in popularizing OLED TVs. OLED technology is hailed as the future of TV technology. Their TVs employ WebOS, a proprietary smart TV software that not only offers seamless functionality but also includes gaming-specific features, earning praise from players worldwide. Often regarded as the gateway to unparalleled viewing experiences, LG's mid-range OLEDs come highly recommended, making them a worthwhile investment for those willing to stretch their budget for superior quality.
