  1. Suspect that the microled may stack up but the rest of the TCL range appear to be the same old "edge lit" panels. Not sure about the 8K though?
  2. Good call CWT. In relation to the equivalent US model, I agree its probably the H9G which as you point out, has received consistently favourable reviews. Hisense are to be commended for bringing to our shores a "high spec" panel at a reasonable price. For example, the 65" version of the hQ8 can be obtained at around the same price as the Samsung's Q7 which has an edge lit panel with no local dimming and a much narrower colour gamut to display HDR. Providing the quality control holds up, I reckon you've got yourself a very good panel. Unfortunately, I suspect that
  3. If you can wait a while, the Hisense 2020 range looks really promising. The Q8 models feature a stack of high end features such as Quantum dot filter, wide colour gamut, high peak brightness and most importantly, full array local dimming (FALD) which puts these panels well above anything TCL can offer in Australia. The 75" version of the Hisense Q8 is listed at $3496 at JBs but should come down to below $3K later in the price cycle.
  4. Hi all - like many of our stereo net community with heaps of "spare time" at the moment I was browsing some of the major on line TV brand sites today and noticed that Hisense has announced their Australian 2020 range of televisions. To my great surprise, the top tier Q8 models are specd. with full array local dimming, quantum dot filter, Dolby Vision, a new operating system (VIDAA 4) and is available in a range of sizes up to 85". The 75" version is listed at a very respectable $3699 which, on the face of it, is very competitive with near rivals offering similar technology.
  5. Probably two things at play here. Firstly (as mentioned above) our geography makes its more expedient for companies like TCL and Hisense to group us in with the SE Asian market. Second - market share. To be fair to TCL, they are able to develop and market high end panels for the US market simply due to the size of that sector. Furthermore, in the USA, these units can be sold at a budget price, as the raw numbers make it economically feasible, given the size of the market. Hisense have talked about their new mini LED technology coming to Australia this year - lets wait and
  6. Agree completely - TCL televisions produced for the Australian market part of the company's south east Asian operation. Generally speaking TCL TVs sold here utilise low spec, narrow colour density, edge lit technology, and are nothing like the panels marketed in the USA, such as the 6 series which utilise full array local dimming, wide colour gamit and outstanding peak brightness. Chalk and cheese unfortunately - I just wish that TCL would sell these premium (but budget priced) models in Australia, but am not holding my breath.
  7. Samsung are significantly downgrading its 4Q QLED range in 2020 attempting to push consumers into the premium 8K market, so I suggest you purchase the 2019 Q75R at that price. Exhibit A 2019 Q75R Full array local dimming with 40 zones 2020 Q70T Edge lit panel with no local dimming.
