He came, went and now returns: The Hisense H65 65-inch 4K UHD smart Android TV for $ 250. THE Black Friday season full of TV deals, it took the cake. He teased Best Buy a few days before Thanksgiving and ran out almost immediately. In fact, it was somewhat smaller brother of an earlier, equally impressive deal: The 70-inch Hisense model for just $ 400. (This is up to $ 450 now, but still a $ 200 discount and a very amazing deal.) Update: As expected, it sold out almost immediately.

But going back to the question: We didn’t review the Hisense H65. And frankly, Android TV isn’t our favorite smart TV operating system, and we have no idea when and when to upgrade this model to support the successor, Google TV. (Yes, Hisense also runs the TVs on the Roku operating system, which we prefer.) But on paper, I like a lot here: In addition to 4K resolution, it supports Dolby Vision HDR and DTS Virtual Audio. It has built-in Google Assistant and Chromecast, the former accessible via the audio remote.

But honestly, if you get a TV this big for such a small price, you may have to make compromises. And if that means you leave the built-in Android apps and use the game console instead – or say a $ 29 Hand Streaming Stick Plus — all is well. Because this TV is so cheap, there is a lot of money left.

Remember: As soon as I discussed CNET TV guru David Katzmaier in one of the latest episodes of the Cheapskate Show podcast, not everyone cares about the perfect black level or local dimming. Sometimes size matters more. And if you need more punching: If you don’t like TV, you have to give it all the way back by January 16th. (This is a specially extended return period.)


Says: “Start of business 20/28/2020”

When does the business start? Sometime Saturday

Now, a fair warning: This TV will almost certainly run out again as soon as it appears live on the Best Buy website. And we don’t know exactly when that will exceed the “Deal Begins 11/28” badge on the Best Buy product page. But from experience, Best Buy’s daily deals often “turn around” on the site sometime after midnight after midnight (thank you, Minneapolis Best Buy HQ). This is PT at 1 p.m. or 10 p.m. Exactly then? Minutes later? Hours later? We have no idea. But now you know as much as we do.
