As Hisense grows as a television brand, many people have noticed that its prices pale in comparison to TVs with similar technical specs from Samsung and LG. That leads to inevitable speculation about whether the Hisense TVs are of equal quality and dependability. In short, they are for the most part, with some caveats.
While Hisense originated in 1969 in Qingdao, China, Hisense USA was founded in the 21st century, so many people stateside are not very familiar with the name and are understandably wary of it. However, the fact is that Hisense licensed the Sharp name in 2015 and manufactured Sharp TVs from 2015 to 2019. Hisense also bought the Toshiba TV business in 2017, so Hisense has been making TVs with household names for several years, unbeknownst to many potential customers.
Here, we look into the most important positive and negative aspects of Hisense TVs, so you can decide if that tempting price tag is actually worth it in the end.
