HiSense - A Great Television At a Great Price

HiSense 42" HDTV - Compliment

On Thursday, just before 4:00 PM, our 42"" flat panel TV set bit the big one. I still don't know if it was just its time, or if the EMP from the solar flares got it. We went to WalMart, and they had a couple of TVs in our price range. notably a 32" Emerson, of which they had three, IIRC, and the HiSense 42" LCD TV. They both cost the same amount, and we had never heard of HiSense, so we were a bit leery.

Technologically, it is one of the most advanced sets we have ever seen, even better than our previous one. We got it home and it was much simpler to hook up and the picture and sound are amazing. We have the aspect set for WIDE, which gives us a picture that just fills the screen. CINEMA makes the picture too large. The sound set up is on SPEECH for most of our viewing, but I can change it to MUSIC special shows on PBS or if I listen to Music choice. It has automatic volume control, so the commercials don't blow out our picture windows. All in all, a terrific set. They only had the one HiSense left, as they were very popular.

I'm not at all familiar with the HiSense brand, so this is very useful to us, Starlord! Eventually, on of our old TV's will die (I'm betting on the one in the bedroom, which is an ancient Zenith that's pushing 20+ years) and that means we'll be looking for a new set. Thanks for helpful review!

Very interesting information discovered in a Google search. If you own a set badged Hitachi, Sanyo, NEC, Qualcomm and several other brands, you are watching a HiSense set. HiSense is a Chinese manufacturer that sells not only under its own name, but provides numerous other companies with sets that just need the casing. Our local WalMaart now has 32", 42" and 46" sets. The 42" which we got costs $398, which I consider a bargain, Since a Sanyo 42" (same set, remember) cost almost twice as much. You really are paying for the name
