Europe's busiest forums, with independent news and expert reviews, for TVs, Home Cinema, Hi-Fi, Movies, Gaming, Tech and more. Energy Class Energy Labels (from 2021) - Energy Labels are now complete with a QR code and rated on a scale of A-G instead of A+++-G. Its trio of HDMIs do, though, unexpectedly handle variable refresh rates (up to 60Hz) and non HDR 1080p at 120Hz – despite the screen only using a 60Hz panel.
The 55E7K Pro’s rear is deeper than most TVs, especially over its bottom third, but enjoys an unusually high degree of styling and sculpting, helping the set maintain a 360-degree elegance. is also displayed properly, even with chroma 4:4:4, as long as you set the HDMI Input Optimization setting to 'Text Clarity Optimization'.
The U7H gets brighter in HDR and SDR, so highlights pop more with HDR content and the TV overcomes glare better with SDR content in a bright room.
It still doesn’t look right, though; there’s too much green, skin colouring still doesn’t look natural, there’s more backlight clouding, and black levels look slightly greyer.Hisense has got off to a promising start in 2023, impressing (if not flat out wowing) us with its premium U8K and U7K Mini LED TVs. The screen suppresses reflections quite nicely, while motion, as hinted at earlier, is a big improvement on Hisense’s 2022 efforts.
It also has an impressive color gamut in HDR and great color volume, so HDR movies look vibrant and lifelike. For video content, it doesn't cause any issues, but if you're planning on using this TV as a PC monitor, this reduces text clarity a bit, although there are easy workarounds for it. Unfortunately, it has a sub-par viewing angle, and the image degrades if you're watching it from an angle, so it's not a good choice if you have a wide seating arrangement or if you like to move around with the TV on. We tested the 65-inch Hisense U7H, and the results are also valid for the 55-inch, 75-inch, and 85-inch models.There’s no local dimming to go with the direct backlighting, though, and worryingly the set uses an IPS-style LCD panel rather than a VA one.
