If you’re in the market for an excellent, future proofed gaming TV but want to keep your budget to under $1K, then take a look at the 2022 Hisense U8H series TVs. They have all the technology you’d want in a current generation gaming TV and they perform superbly as HDR TV sets as well. Best of all, Amazon has the 65″ and 55″ models at the lowest price we’ve seen, cheaper than on Amazon Prime Day or last year’s Black Friday. At their new price point, they are strong contenders for best quality TVs in their respective price ranges.
55″ Hisense U8H 4K Quantum ULED Mini LED Google TV for $649.99, 65″ for $949.99
HDMI 2.1 for 4K @ 120Hz
The UH8 is Hisense’s current 2022 TV. It replaces the popular U8G model from last year. This is Hisense’s highest end TV that utilizes traditional LED technology. It easily competes and surpasses similarly priced models from more well known brands like Samsung, LG, and Sony. The biggest upgrade from last year’s model is the Mini-LED panel, which allows for better control of black levels and thus a higher contrast ratio. The UH8 also features quantum dot technology (QLED), which offers higher brightness levels (up to 1,500 nits) and better color reproduction. The UH8 is a ULED TV, meaning it’s equipped with full-array LED backlighting with local dimming and supports wide color gamut.
The U8H has gamers covered. It has a native 120Hz panel and two HDMI 2.1 inputs. That means it can pass true 4K @ 120Hz on PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles and RTX 30 series equipped gaming PCs. The U8H also supports variable refresh rate (VRR), which is this TV’s version of adaptive sync technology, as well as auto low latency mode (ALLM), where the TV automatically switches to a lower latency when it detects gameplay.
All the features above make the U8H an excellent HDR TV set as well, especially when combined with its Dolby Vision HDR support. That’s a lot of features in a $650-$950 TV set, but then again, it normally retails at several hundred dollars more.
