Hisense 42" 1080p LED HDTV

Good reviews (4 out of 5 stars) over at walmart.com

I have one, using it right now actually.

Pros: Thin, affordable, swivel base, good colors, bright, decent picture, three hdmi ports.

Cons: Smearing of the image in very dark scenes, only 60hz.

Truth be told, it’s pretty unbeatable for the price. It’s not perfect, but it gets the job done.

TONS of comments from when this was offered back in November

A friend recommended this brand to me earlier this year. I had never heard of them before, but after a little research I found that they actually make quality products, especially for the price.

Time for one more quickie–it’s $299.99 again. Manual (don’t freak out that the first page is upside down and in Spanish):

and my comment from a more recent sale in February (edited):

These have been sold multiple times:

I’m guessing prices were the same in January for all 3 on sale

and last January without the 3D TV

Prices in February:
42" F42K20E $299.99

November: $279.99 http://tech.woot.com/forums/viewpost.aspx?postid=5249960

You get the idea, that’s all I can do, have to go back to work. Good night.

I got one of these back in November, my only real complaint is the lack of an optical audio output. The sound isn’t that great(ok I guess that’s 2 complaints), and I would like to connect a sound bar or surround system, but that digital coaxial output seems pretty rare. Otherwise, a great deal on a nice tv.

I was going to mention the lack of optical, but for me it’s not really a problem. For bluray/xbox/other devices I run the audio straight to my sound system. For the TV, the 3.5mm output works just fine for my needs. Also, you can pick up digital coax to optical or component audio converters for a reasonable price.

Mine will no longer turn on. Anyone else have this problem?

Pretty amazing price for this size.

If you like cutting out the marketing middle man, get this directly made by the Chinese brand (Hisense) - why mess with another brand that also makes their stuff in China and marks the price up accordingly?

“ARE”? for shame woot…

I bought one. Absolute garbage. The stand did not sit flat. The picture ratio adjustment did not work. Colors were poor, there was no sense of hi definition. Save your money!!!
