Hisense LTDN50K321UWT – Sound Quality

The LTDN50K321UWT is a solid audio performer. It’s capable of reaching decent volumes without its speakers distorting or its cabinet beginning to rattle. In addition, its soundstage offers a sense of depth even though there isn’t much accompanying width to go with it.

Vocals sound clear too, and while bass doesn’t reach any great depths, what is present is well integrated with the mid-range, rather than sounding baggy and forced.

The main problem is with the treble, which can sound harsh, occasionally making you wince at high volumes.

Other Things to Consider

If the LTDN50K321UWT looks like it would make a great big-screen gaming monitor, then you’re right. With the TV set to its Game preset, and as much video processing as possible turned off, I measured its input lag at just 38ms. This is a highly respectable result for a 4K UHD TV, and shouldn’t have a negative impact on your gaming performance.Hisense LTDN50K321UWT

Should I buy a Hisense LTDN50K321UWT?

Before I had the opportunity to test the LTDN50K321UWT, my suspicion was that this 50-inch 4K UHD TV for £500 was simply too good to be true. However, if there is a major catch, I haven’t been able to find it.

Yes, it’s possible to get smarter smarts and better AV standards if you spend more. But by “more”, I’m talking twice as much. For its price there simply isn’t anything else out there that even gets close to what the LTDN50K321UWT delivers.

Verdict

I’ve seen many new TV brands appear and disappear over the years, but none have managed to deliver quite so much impact with their debut TV as Hisense with the LTDN50K321UWT. Certainly, there are better 4K TVs available – but if there are any that offer better value for money, I can’t think of them.
