Hisense 55K610GW

Hisense, a Chinese-based electronics manufacturer that distributes their products through retailers like Best Buy, Costco, and Walmart, has redefined the term "budget HDTV" with its K610 series.


For an incredibly low price of $798 (list) on the 55-inch 55K610GW, this is the most affordable big-screen HDTV to hit the PCMag Labs, and it's not what you'd consider a bare-bones model either.


The full HD (1,920 by 1,080) panel has a 120Hz refresh rate and uses LED backlighting, and the TV offers wired and wireless networking as well as a decent selection of Web apps. That said, the 55K610GW performs like a budget set; its color quality is sketchy, background noise is apparent, and shadow detail is mediocre.


PROS:
Very affordable. Built-in Wi-Fi. Web apps included. Good viewing angles.


CONS:
Oversaturated blues. Mediocre contrast ratio. Some background noise.


BOTTOM LINE:
The Hisense K610 series gets you a capable LED-backlit HDTV with networking and Web apps for a low price, but don't expect stellar performance at this price.
