I often heard that hisense had black level issues. Have you seen any issues?

Cool. See if there are any dark shading differences across the screen.

They might have fixed the issue. But, I do remember folks complaining about it sometime back..

Awaiting your report. :)

If black is good, then for a basic LED tv, this is a good set then. :)

This is a good basic tv then..

Would you recommend for a main tv?

I wonder if this tv is like the Vizeo where as they make them out of whatever they get a good deal on at the time... Meaning you might have a great one and a few months later get a bad one due to dif manufactured parts.

Me and my roommate went in on a tv together and without my knowledge took a plunge and bought a 55inch led hisense. I hope these tv's are solid, as I owe 400 dollars to him for a product I never even got to evaluate. Your positive words about the set eases my nerves a little bit, but I have never even heard of this brand until I got a picture sent to me with it in the living room. Ill let you all know how it pans out once I get to see it once I move in next week.

Update on the tv.. Don't know many people who would care but as it's a slow growing brand but anyway.. We have the smart led 55 inch version. Was 800 bucks from Walmart. Colors are beautiful, clarity is perfect, but it lags like crazy. Watching football on it is very difficult for me.. The football in kid air seems to disappear and just flash across the screen until the receiver catches it, and the players legs will sometimes move faster then the tv cn handle. There is a 120 htz smooth motion option but this makes movement seem shaky and unnatural. But other then the lag on fast moving scenes the tv was definitely a steal if it lasts. That's another thing, being a new brand I have no idea how this set will hold up. Hopefully the roomie made a wise decision. Time will tell.

I was at Walmart this past weekend and walked by the tv section and they had the 55 inch version hanging on the display. It was playing the dvd loop that all the tv's were playing and while they didn't show action movements the displays they were showing were very impressive. Color was good and the brightness and everything just looked good. As for sports, I couldn't tell since it wasn't showing any action..

I wonder if there is a setting that needs to be set to control the lag??

To be honest I was shocked at the clarity of the picture.. The colors, deep blacks and clarity for the cost is more then worth it. It's just the fact of it being so cheap, and a new brand makes me very skeptical. Also with the settings, the only setting for motion is the smooth motion option which I hate worse then the lag. Can really only tell when I'm watching sports since you seem to focus on individual players. When watching action scenes so many things are being thrown at you at once it's hard to catch.

The tv may not be "reference" TV but for the price it is worthy of being used as a secondary tv say in a bedroom. I think for watching regular tv and blu ray quality movies the tv is perfect for.
