Hisense has the best HDR TV prices on the market. With Roku TV, the Hisense 43R7E 43 Inch TV is easy to set up and use. Hisense is a great value brand for a Smart TV, providing the 4K quality you’re looking for but without the large price tag.

Why We Like It – Hisense 43R7E

The Hisense 43R7E 43-Inch TV is a fantastic choice for anyone that wants a beautiful 4K TV without paying an arm and a leg. The best part is the simple home screen, remote, and smartphone app, which allows you to focus on your favorite shows without struggling with confusing new technology. For a larger screen, Hisense has other offerings as well, like the Hisense 55H8F, a 55-inch TV that also has Google Assistant.

  • Very affordable
  • Simplistic remote and home screen are so easy-to-use
  • Has a large variety of inputs
  • Some reviews report the unit arriving damaged


Hisense makes good quality 4K HDR TVs without the expense of higher-end models like the Samsung 50-Inch Class Crystal UHD TU-8000 Series – 4K UHD HDR Smart TV. The Hisense Roku TV has a 4K Ultra HD HDR display with over 8 million pixels for clear picture quality. It’s compatible with HDR10 programming to boost the contrast of images, making colors pop. And it also supports a whopping 120 frames per second for more exciting sports or gaming sessions. This is twice as many frames as the Vizio M7 Series Quantum 2020. You can set up the TV with or without the stand, so it works perfectly with any living room setup. For an 8K option, check out the Hisense U80G.


The Hisense 43R7E has DTS Studio Sound, which is virtual surround sound for a crisp audio experience. Amazon reviews say the sound is pretty good, but many reviewers still set up an external sound bar for better audio. You can compare the sound to another great budget option with our TCL 40S325 review.

Smart Features

While not an Organic LED model like the LG CX OLED, the Hisense 43R7E is still a basic 4K LED TV with smart features that make it incredibly easy to use. It has a simple home screen design and a simplistic remote control, meaning this TV is perfect for folks who aren’t so tech-savvy. It also has automatic updates through wifi, so there’s no missing the newest Roku Smart TV software. And if you like the Roku smart TV OS, check out our TCL 6 Series 65 review. Another smart TV option is the Westinghouse WR32FE2009, though it has a lower 1080p resolution and the screen size is 32 inches instead of 43.


The Hisense 43R7E has a built-in ethernet port and dual band wifi to automatically download updates and stream from your favorite services. It also has a USB port so you can directly load pictures and movies onto the screen or simply charge your phone. Lastly, it has 3 HDMI ports for flexibility in how you connect. Check out our Samsung NU6900 Series review to compare these models.


Hisense has some of the lowest Smart TV prices on the market and is still great quality for anyone who doesn’t want to drop a bunch of money on a high-end TV (like the Sony A8H OLED). At $314, the Hisense Roku TV is hundreds of dollars less than the competition but still provides 4K Ultra HD and 120 frames per second for impeccable sports watching and beautiful color quality. It’s a great value for anyone who needs a basic TV or doesn’t want to struggle with setting up a bunch of cables and cords. There are hundreds of happy reviews on Amazon that are impressed with the value of this TV. And Hisense offers a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty. You can compare it to another great budget-friendly option with our TCL 43S425 review.

Hisense 43R7E 43-Inch TV Wrap Up

A good unit at a good price, the Hisense 43R7E 43-Inch TV with Roku TV is a fantastic value for basic 4K Ultra HD.
