You forgot experts in the field of Hyacinths. Not much overlap between botany and electronics...

I knew I had seen that Lichme name before when in the ustream chat. Always comments first with good information. I was thinking it was a staff member.

I'm tempted. I'll think about it. I've still got an old school clunky box tv and kind of think it's time to replace it. Refurbished always makes me skiddish because I have terrible luck.

Anybody buy this the last time? Any issues or is it awesome?

All lcd tv's with a refresh rate of 60hz should be banned.
120hz should be new norm. watching fast action video with 60hz is terrible.

I'm lusting after a Smart TV, and after five years, there'll be something else new that is needed.

Defective unit. All manufacturers have them.

This is almost assuredly a conflict with your cable company and NOT the fault of the tv

Hisense is not a good brand. I've had one before and had very bad experience with it's quality and build. Do not buy. There's a reason it's cheap.

I've wondered these same things. The name just SOUNDS cheap... along the lines of Insignia.

Hisense has become quite popular so I was holding out hope that they might be the new Vizio, which also sounded weird when they first came out. Difference being that my refurb Vizio 38" LCD is still going strong after 4-5 years, and Hisense has no track record whatsoever.

Yes, although the support from these folks is marginal. We have an issue with one we bought in December (42") that has developed a line in the picture. I conacted support, and they said I had to send it back to them, but they would pay shipping. We'd already recycled the box since it was past the 90 days for a store return, and found that it would cost more than $70 just for a box to ship it back. HiSense said they had no access to an empty box they could ship, and that we were SoL. If you make the decision to purchase one of these, save the box for the whole warranty period so you're not disappointed like we were.

I've been nothing but happy with mine since buying about a year ago. Everything has worked flawlessly and it's a great picture. I do like the extra size but the only problem I've ran into vs a 42" is that it was really hard to find an armoire that fit this TV. we had to hold out for a while to find one big enough to fit a 46". not the worst problem to have...

Do NOT buy this. Mine arrived with all sorts of problems and many weeks later I'm still waiting on my refund. Stay far away from Hisense TVs. Two in a row from Woot ended up like this.

I bought the 42" Hisense 9 months ago for $299 and it works great. It's on at least 8 hours per day in the lobby at my office.

Mine came in a box that disintegrated upon delivery.

Did some sleuthing and found a more detailed specs page on Hisense's international site here.
Here's the user manual.

And first sucker here.

I looked at Hisense TV's at walmart and the picture quality there was really bad on some of the sets. The tech that was in those sets was from at least 10 years ago, that is why I won't touch this deal or any deal involving Hisense.

Nothing is free but if you are lucky it can be inexpensive.

A video signal fed from a coaxial cable via a splitter usually doesn't result in stellar video quality. I don't think it's a priority for Walmart's clerks to deliver outstanding quality sample video over HDMI to their TVs. Honestly it's hard to mess up on picture quality with a digital signal, unless the brightness/contrast/tint/etc wasn't properly setup.

The picture that showed how bad the sets were was a night time scene with flames from a fire, all the other brand name sets showed it well but the Hisense sets could not show the flames edges properly. This was a problem with the cheapest digital/HD LCD TV sets when they originally came out a long time ago.

Got my TV today, the box used for shipping was intact. The included Phillips screws are fairly soft, easy to strip, so be careful. Everything works as advertised, I'm pretty satisfied with it.
Also make sure the volume is turned down before you use it, I was greeted with maximum volume when everything was set up.
Seems like after being refurbished, the previous owner's settings weren't cleared.

A+++++++++ Would Woot again

Have had my TV almost a week. It's definitely not top of the line, but for $300 this was exactly what I was looking for. I like it a lot

Had my TV for about 3 weeks now. I watch Netflix maybe every other day, and just earlier while watching, the TV makes this loud popping sound. It sounded like someone was knocking pretty loudly on a door, so it was very startling. Next thing you know, the audio gives out and no sound is coming out for few minutes. Then, the audio comes back, but it's very tinny-sounding. The sound fades in and out many times before I just gave up and turned off the TV. Anyone else experienced this problem with this TV or another??
