Hisense 55DU6070 Review – Product Profile

Hisense 55DU6070

H6 Series 4K Ultra HD HDR 60Hz Smart LED TV

Preface

Since I wasn’t able do an actual hands on review of the Hisense 55DU6070, I instead chose to do what I call a product profile, which consists of info that is based on research I conducted before writing this article and complied here in a condensed format to save you the time and effort it would take to gather the info yourself.

The end result of this product profile is to provide you with important and relevant info regarding this product.

Feature Highlights

The Hisense 55” DU6070 is part of the company’s 2017 H6 Series and is a budget/entry level 4K UHD TV that is very cost effective and provides decent 4K TV images for those who aren’t looking for high-end performance. The H6 Series is also available in 43” 50” and 65” screen sizes.

It has the basic necessities needed to get you started with the latest must have technology features including 4K resolution, HDR capability and smart TV functionality.

For those who are unaware, HDR or High Dynamic Range increases the TV’s overall contrast for a greater range of peak brightness (highlights) and black levels, in addition to better picture detail and more vibrant colors. The DU6070 supports the HDR10 HDR format (No Dolby Vision support).

The built-in smart TV platform provides access to a number of pre-installed apps which include Netflix, Amazon Instant, Vudu, YouTube and Pandora to name a few. However, the 55DU6070’s smart TV interface does have a downside… you cannot add or install new apps; you are stuck with the pre-installed apps which some consumers my find to be a bit limited in number.

Therefore, if you want to watch movies; for example from Hulu, you will have to use another device to acquire this service since the Hulu app is not available on the 55DU6070.

The 55DU6070 also features 4K upscaling which converts lower resolution video sources, including 1080p, to near 4K quality.
