Not sure I'd call "Hisense" an "upstart" - they've been making TVs since before 1979!

No I hadn't particularly heard of them until the last few years.

Saw a post on an undocumented sale of 50" Hisense 4k tvs a few years back. Was $229 at walmart.com with a particular code, back when every other 4k tv of the size was more like $500 to $900 at their best sales.

Figured I couldn't go wrong, placed an order online for in store pickup & drove to my local Wally World with my paperwork.

People in store couldn't believe it was legit, as the TV was selling for $550+ on the shelf, but sure enough? They scanned my bar codes, determined I'd paid for it, and they grabbed me a unit out of the back.

Have used it for about the last 5 years & have been VERY happy with performance and picture quality. Reliability? No issues at all to this point, but if it craps out? Think I did damn well for under $250!
