One of the best things I've bought.
After looking at the picture of a lot of sets, this one stood out to me even though I wasn't familiar with the brand. Now after watching it for a few months, I'm still happy. Skin tones, blacks, colour, smooth motion, all awesome. Easy set up. What I didn't expect was the sound quality which is very good for a TV (most TVs sound poor and need a sound system). Good features but I must admit I don't utilize all the potential. Struggling to think of a negative. The only one was that (on the advice of the manual), laid it face down on a flat surface and had some issue fitting the feet on installation due to the ultra thin large screen. Needs to be done adjacent to table edge.

Worst OS, satisfactory picture quality
Satisfied with its picture quality
Response time is nightmare
It's OS is crap
Very limited apps available. Doesn't have prime video, disney movies and lot of apps you might want in its app store.

I returned it.
The good: The picture quality with proper 4k material was pretty good. It is a gorgeous looking TV, the stand looks great and the screen truly is super thin.
The bad: The input lag is horrendous. The operating system itself is bare bones and something I was willing to compromise on, but every button click took a second or two to register on screen and was infuriating.
This TV is useless for gaming. The input lag was there no matter what I did. After hours of researching and fiddling with every possible setting and factor I realised it was si...

Tv great to start but ongoing issues
we purchased this tv in December and it was great for a while but having issues now and seems to be common problem across many hisense smart TVs. The internet is dropping constantly and have to reset tv to get working and that’s painful to do. Both on wifi and cable. Other problems are that can’t connect to things that are not an app on tv. Eg Disney tv. If the internet keeps dropping out will be returning and getting another brand. Have downloaded latest firmware, turned off wake to wifi setting, done factor reset, it’s not speed or internet issue from other end, tried cable also. When it happens won’t pick up any networks. It appears to be an ongoing issue and across many models and something hisense has not been able to resolve.

The best TV I have owned
Fantastic picture quality via OLED panel, great sound (didn't bother to connect my Soundbar), good functionality.
My first time purchasing Hisense brand - recent TV 's have been Sony 55in 8500G and Samsung Series 7 (when living o/s) - so 3 year warranty helped with decision.
While the Sony and Samsung were UHD vs the Hisense OLED, the price point for all is similar, and the Hisense wins hands down of picture quality, sound quality and aesthetics (great stand and ultra thin profile). Most known brands' OLED's cost more than double the Hisense.... Only frustrating thing is the preloaded apps on the Smart TV are limited - so if you wanted Foxtel Now, Stan, Prime, Netflix, Spotify and Tidal you'll have to use a streaming device like roku (Telstra TV), Apple TV, etc. The remote is great - would be greater if it was backlit!

Great Picture - can take a bit of setting up UPDATE 2yrs on - DO NOT BUY THIS THING
Initial setup is very simple. However, out of the box, digital 1080p and better content looks amazing but broadcast (free to air TV) at 576i (several channels) was really pixelated especially where there was movement on the screen. Ended up fixing this by turning OFF motion smoothing.
Also had a common problem after about 3 days of owning the TV where it dropped my wi-fi connection and I couldn't reconnect. I found Hisense tech support pretty easy to get onto and they talked me through accessing a hidden menu to turn off fast-boot that was ...enabled by default out of the box. This fixed the problem. What I love about this TV: - simple to attach solid stand - very thin bezel - blacks are so... BLACK - it is OLED after all - colours are amazing - stuck with standard after trying a few modes - very responsive

Questions & Answers
Above review says you access iview app through EPG, what is that
And how do I do this please!
It's not intuitive. WHen you change to ABC on the EPG - electronic program guide, an indicator comes up on the screen and you press the green button on the remote to access iview. I think for ABC Iview you might be able to download an app, you certainly can for SBS.
Honestly this is the weakest part of this TV for me, I haven't found a way to get 10 play or 9 now to work with this TV....
I'm assuming you mean accessing these channels strictly through the TV's operating system and not through for example an attached invidia sheild or firestick etc etc ?
