Suggesting the big screen TV price competition is intense is like suggesting that the North Pole is a little freezing. The constant refrain for TVs in the range of 65-inch in particular is more feature, better images and lower prices and no exception is Hisense 4 K Premium ULED 65H9F LCD TV (US$ 899 for the standard 65-inch).

The Hisense 65H9F provides many of the apps that people are looking for at a low cost package of 4k, well below $1,000 and within $50 to $100 of the competition. It supports new color formats such as Dolby Vision and has some advanced features such as a backlight. The H9F offers a wide range of smart devices powered by all the new applications from Google’s Android TV platform and Voice Control by Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa.

Availability & Price

The 4K H9F TV is a next step from the product range in H8F. The superior LCD sets are fitted with quantum dot frames, full array, and Google TV. The 65-inch model was our review unit.

In two H9 4K packs, Hisense delivers the same basic technology and functionality. In contrast to our 65-inch model, though clients may expect similar results, there may be other variations, including less small-screen dimming areas.


The package is wrapped in basic Black, which is considered “bezel-less.” by Hisense. Now, though, the slim fronts around the screen are typical with a slightly broader bottom frame that shouldn’t be a distraction.

Under theory, set up in the average living room can be a little chaotic and complicated for 65″ and larger sets. However, the Hisense H9F makes it relatively simple to set up. For the tabletop positioning of the display measuring 57.1x33x2.9-inch, a center stand with two triangular feet allows for a stable foundation. And as the feet go out from the bottom, a large table or credence is not necessary to set up.

Wall assembly is also an option. The TV is lightweight, just 43.7 pounds, and can be mounted wall mounted using a regular mounting bracket VESA 400x 200 mm.


The Hisense H9F provides a wide array of connections that meet most theater needs. 4 outputs from computers to DVD can be accommodated with HDMI 2.0A ports. For cord breakers, two USB ports, a digital audio system amp and a mini headphone jack, a coaxial antenna interface is also available. This jacket is behind it, so it is quite out-of-date and unusual. Classic RCA audio and video jackets for older video sources are also available.

An Ethernet port, which is an essential element of any smart TV, is required for networking. The H9F can also be used for Wi-Fire or Bluetooth (802.11 a/b/g/n/ac) applications.


The Hisense H9F uses a quantum-pin film to facilitate color reproduction, has full-spectrum illumination, and 132 local dimming areas to maximize contrast. The HDR modes start automatically to change brightness and contrast (an option is disabled); the H9F also checks each scene automatically.

We consider the theatre-day system to be the best and safest in our review and have a range of preset photos in the series. We especially liked it, by selecting theater mode for the blue-ray player for instance, to change the image and save the settings for each input.

Blade Runner 2049 reveals the Hisense H9F in 4K how well complex and blurred pictures can be viewed. Throughout comparatively monochromatic scenes, the details have also been faithfully reproduced, like a dead white tree put on a foggy grey landscape.

At the appearance of the 4K disk, the colors were normal. From the blonds of the university desk to the quiet colors of the lake, the H9F offered natural textures and shades. There were also less dramatic scenes, like the launching of the night helicopter, where you can see all of the specifics and a compact car in the dusk.


The sound of a set will make you feel right in the scene –or as though you are a hundred kilometers away. This Hisense TV has two 15-watt channels, which is roughly an average price for versions. Hisense utilizes dbx-tv (as opposed to Dolby), based on the preferences, to create various sound effects and modes.

Seven predefined settings are available, including music-oriented modes, improving speech and viewing audibility. The wall mount mode is also accessible so that the system knows that it is against a wall.

It can make a major difference to your choice. For e.g., playing music in normal TV mode rendered the sound feel tight and raising the sound stage to a low stereo effect. The tone, on the other hand, became lighter with a play of Steely Dan videos in theater, stretching the sound sequence, putting the horns on top and the drums on the side of the picture. During music mode, the surround effect was less accessible and the concert style felt uncomfortable.

We felt that generally the package had a lack of dynamic range and a lower bass response, while there is a five-band equalizer that you can play with if you still don’t feel what you like For a TV that is just over 2 inches deep, this isn’t uncommon. They suggest that a Soundbar or full surround sound system be applied to the maximum listening experience.

Final verdict

Prices fall nearly every day on the cost-conscious large-screen segment. Therefore, identical quantum point 4K sets are now being flirted with the $700 mark from firms including Vizio and TCL. Hisense is bound to follow the revolving market battle and for those who have a deficit but still have a critical eye for picture quality this 65-inch 4K collection is an excellent choice. Yes, other shoppers will determine if they like the Roku app in TCL boxes, or on Hisense’s latest R8 series, or the more powerful Android TV application of this type.
