The Hisense U8K is one of the best TVs on the market right now. In our Hisense U8K review, we praised this TV's awesome brightness and vibrant picture. It's an all-around improvement over last year's Hisense U8H.
In our tests, the Hisense U8K hit an impressive peak brightness of 1788.313369 nits, and covered 99.8301% of the Rec. 709 color gamut. Everything we watched on the Hisense U8K looked bright, colorful and crisp. However, we've seen better results for color accuracy from other TVs, as the U8K achieved a Delta-E score of 4.4614.
The Hisense U8K also packs a great sound system. A 2.1.2 speaker system is built-in, and music, dialogue and sound effects came through distinctly with sound that's loud enough to fill a room. Adding one of the best soundbars would improve this TV's sound, though.
This is also a good choice for a gaming TV. It sports a refresh rate of up to 144Hz, HDMI 2.1 support with eARC. ALLM and AMD FreeSync Premium Pro are also accounted for. Most importantly, the U8K came in with a low lag time of 13.2ms.
