The 2018 Hisense H9E is an excellent Smart TV because it comes at a wonderful price point while offering the power and performance of some more high-end smart TVs. The dark room viewing experience could be a bit better if it had a stronger contrast ratio and some better local dimming features, but it's brightness and larger color gamut makes the picture good enough for most scenarios. In addition the Hisense H9E also offers a decent response time and a good input lag for both fast-moving content and video games. The one downfall is its semi narrow viewing angle and its lesser than average smart features. Though for the price of around $1,000 you almost can not beat the Hisense H9 series.
