The Little known TV that Could
By Tom the Enthusiast
About Me Enthusiast
Comments about Hisense 40" Class LED 1080p HDTV with Built-In Wi-Fi and Android 4.2:
Bought this to replace a 32 inch 1st Generation Google TV. I wont mention the model brand as don't want to ruin my review not getting published due to naming the brand.Things that made me buy it to replace my old tv with this one is Size as it was 8 inches bigger, Price as it was cheaper then the original tv I had, as well as updated Android OS and Voice input actually works well with it. Also I am told that the lag my old tv had with video games that others had with my old model tv is not show up in this model and brand.The problems I did have were minor as the cables tend to run in to the tv from the side rather then from the back like I like but is probably great for people who want to wall mount the tv.Tv had a sticker of being made October 28th, 2013 next to the serial number and the tv is actually one of the new Hisense Vision models that was shown off at this years 2014 CES but is hard to find info on the model when I searched up on it.The problems with Missing Certain Channels and Channel Scan Problems I mentioned were the same I experienced with my old tv until they fixed the problems with some firmware updates and hopefully Hisense fixes the problem as well in the future with a firmware update.Also there is no way to add channels manually or update your over the air channels without going through the whole channel scan process from scratch. And since you can't manually add channels to the line up that I could see, you really have to work hard when you want access to channel 3 that may be needed for an old vcr or something as to get that channel you have to do a channel scan as normal and then when it reaches digital channel 68 or 69 , you need to turn on your device like your vcr to put a signal to that channel so it detects it and adds it to the line up so you'll have it available.Also there is no screensaver built in so if your using the android apps and fall asleep you'll wake up with the screen how you left it.One more thing is some podcasts played on it using a certain android app sound distorted when played but could probably be fixed with a firmware update like most of the other problems I mentioned.Also due to it being an energy saving tv there is a delay between turning it on and being able to pull up the android OS that is noticeable but probably could be fixed by an update.All in all with all my nitpicks I mentioned , I am glad I bought the tv when I did and I hope Hisense starts making more noise about this tv and starts putting out more information about it as its been pretty good so far and could be better with a few updates to fix the problems I noticed.
Service and delivery comments:
Delivery was great as it is the first time I bought a TV over the web as I always worry about having it arrive damaged or other bad stuff.Product arrived and was fine and before it shipped PCRichards helped me find out more information about it using a social network by sending me the manual via email when I asked for more information about it.They went above and beyond what I expected and I appreciate it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

returned my 32 inch Vizio smart tv m series for this tv. Was not crazy about Vizio picture and for a little more money, got a better picture and better remote. Its 60 mh but watching football game now and do not see any difference. Would highly recommend this tv.
