Hisense Series 8 ULED 2017: Full, in-depth review
Hisense takes the fight to the home entertainment heavyweights
- Reasonably priced
- Built-in 4K Netflix
- Edge-lit with underwhelming blacks
- Disappointing video processing
While Hisense punches above its weight in the budget television category, this new top-shelf television struggles to hold its own.
Price$ 4,999.00 (AUD)
After making a splash as a challenger brand, Hisense is taking the fight to the home entertainment heavyweights with its flagship Series 8 and 9 ULED televisions.
For a long time Australia's high-end television market was dominated by a handful of premium brands which were head and shoulders above the rest in terms of picture quality. That changed with the arrival of budget television makers like Hisense, proving that shopping on a mid-range budget no longer means living with mediocre picture quality.
Last year's Hisense Series 7 ULED television met with rave reviews, with its $1999 55-inch model putting far more expensive rivals to shame. This year Hisense has its sights set on the top-shelf television category, with a price tag to match, but unfortunately it fails to live up to expectations.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
I rate the printer as a 5 out of 5 stars as it has been able to fit seamlessly into my busy and mobile lifestyle.
It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
