Boasting glare-reducing peak brightness, VRR, high contrast ratio, and low input lag, the Hisense U6GR TV offers superb value for its price, great for casual gaming and movie viewing. Nevertheless, it lacks HDMI 2.1, and limited off-center viewing makes it ill-suited for wide viewing.

Product Snapshot

Overview

The Hisense U6GR TV entered the market in 2022 and is an affordable entry-level 4K LED TV that comes in two sizes (55” and 65”). Equipped with Quantum Dot (QLED) technology, it showcases a wide color range and supports Dolby Vision and Atmos. Similar to the best TVs, its quad-core processor upscales content to 4K, there are over 150,000 channels with its Roku TV smart interface, and users can access Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa.

The TV has four HDMI 2.0 ports, eARC support, and a USB connection, but there’s no Bluetooth connectivity. Its native refresh rate is 60 Hz, and like the best 4K TVs, it is compatible with HDMI Forum VRR and FreeSync. Additionally, for gaming, it has an automatic low latency mode for improved response time (11.3ms), and the 60 full array local dimming zones boost HDR performance in dark and bright spaces.

Consensus

our Verdict

Reasons to Buy

Great picture quality

  • It excels for casual gamers and movie buffs by effectively reducing daytime glare and enhancing low-light viewing with its tested 600 nits brightness and high contrast ratio of 6,000:1.

Deep blacks and VRR compatibility

  • The TV achieves deep blacks thanks to the local dimming feature, and screen tearing is minimal during gaming with VRR compatibility..

Remote with convenient voice control button

  • The easy-to-use remote offers voice control so anyone can use it to navigate the user-friendly Roku TV platform.

Low-tested input lag

  • The impressive 11.3 ms input lag ensures a responsive gaming experience and tested in the top 3rd of all our certified, tested TVs.

Reasons to Not

Lacks an HDMI 2.1 connection

  • The absence of HDMI 2.1 means limited frame rates, which may disappoint gamers seeking high-performance 120fps gaming.

Relatively slow response time

  • You’ll notice slight motion blur with its sluggish 13.0ms response time and low 60Hz refresh rate.

Bright objects bloom

  • Dimly lit scenes display visible blooming, which can be distracting for viewers.

Poor upscaling performance

  • It struggles to improve the quality of low-resolution content (480p) to 4K, resulting in a loss of detail.

Narrow viewing angles

  • Colors wash out at 22°, making movie viewing for large groups unsuitable.

The Hisense U6GR TV boasts VRR and eARC compatibility, unlike the Hisense U6G, which is part of the same lineup. However, the U6G outshines with its faster response time and superior upscaling of low-res content. The U6G runs on the Android TV interface, while the U6GR opts for Roku TV. For those eyeing a Google TV 11 experience, the Hisense U6H review is worth considering. And if you’re after top-notch upscaling, dive into our Hisense R6G TV (R6090G) review.

The TCL 6 series outshines the Hisense U6GR with superior SDR and HDR peak brightness, along with a speedy 120 Hz refresh rate for fast-paced gaming. On the flip side, the Hisense U6GR boasts better local dimming. If you’re in the market for a top-tier 60 Hz Amazon TV with excellent judder removal, our recommendation is our Amazon Fire TV Omni Series review.

The Hisense U6GR has a variable refresh rate for reduced screen tearing, which the Samsung TU7000 is missing, and its full-array auto local dimming ensures deep blacks for superior contrast. Meanwhile, the less expensive TU7000 falls short in contrast due to the absence of this feature, though it compensates with better-blooming performance.
