Hisense Offers 55 Inch UltraHD Set For $1,999

HiSense-T880_UltraHDTV.jpgMind not the fact that there is no Blu-ray or broadcast standard for UltraHD, Hisense is making a Vizio-like play for the low end of this new market with a 55 inch UltraHD set. Red-Ray players are hitting the market but have little to no UltraHD content and Sony's server works only on Sony's UHD sets so you will still be upconverting Blu-ray content to higher resolution with this set in the short term.

From Hisense

Hisense today announced pricing and immediate availability of its new 55 inch T880 4K Ultra High Definition SMART TV. Designed and engineered to break price and technology barriers, the T880 is entering the competition at $1,999.

Landing punches above its weight - the T880 offers Connected TV, built in WiFi, an Opera Web Browser, four HDMI/HDCP Inputs, one of which is true UHD and a USB Digital Media Player, all in an elegant narrow frame. It also comes pre-installed with Netflix, Vudu HD Movies, YouTube, Vimeo, Pandora, Twitter, Facebook, Picasa, AccuWeather and Vudu Apps. Featuring an LED backlight LCD with ULED dimming and a 178-degree viewing angle, every seat is the best in the room.

"Watching television is often an escape from reality, and our UHD technology truly enables the viewer to feel like they're right in the action and part of every moment," said Jonathan Frank, Vice President of Marketing, Hisense USA. "As one of the largest CE manufacturers in the world, our products aim to enhance the overall viewing experience from start to finish - at an ideal price point for budget-conscious buyers looking for the latest and greatest TV technology."

With four times the resolution of current Full HD, the T880's 4K Ultra HD picture comes to life with a resolution of 3840 x 2160 and over eight million pixels of incredible detail and beautifully natural motion powered by Hisense's Ultra SMR 120 Smooth Motion Rate. Paired with Hisense's LED technology and PureColor Reproduction, the color range is precise, accurate, and so life-like you would think you were part of the script.
