Hisense Introduces New 80 Inch Laser TV at a More Affordable Price

Hisense Announces new Laser TV just before FIFA World Cup.

Hisense, the Chinese electronics manufacturer has announced a new 80-inch laser TV priced at just Yuan 19,999 (around $3,140).). With FIFA world up starting from next month, it seems a perfect timing to launch a Laser TV with a lower price tag, one can expect a lot of sales from Chinese middle class. Even outside China, once released, this will be one of the cheapest Laser TV available in the retail market.

Hisense is officially sponsoring the Russia FIFA 2018 world cup event; they even have an official FIFA logo on the packaging of their new product.

Last year, Hisense had introduced L8D, a 100-inch laser TV that was priced at $10,000, instead of a traditional TV it was more of a throwback projector, which had all the features of a normal TV. Amazon has the Hisense L8D Laser TV on sale for $8,999.99. It had an over to air TV tuner card and build in 100-watt speakers from brand Harman Kardon, so technically due to its features, it is a projector that works like a traditional smart TV. Unlike traditional projectors, it can be placed few inches away from the screen and save from the hassles and installation steps involved with normal projectors.

According to Hisense, you won’t need to switch off all the lights and pull the curtains down; L5 laser TV is capable of displaying clear pictures even in normal room lightening conditions. L5’s images have a brightness of around 400 Nits, that is equal to 1200 Nits of a normal TV, so it should be throwing a fairly bright projection that can be viewed in well-lit rooms.

All Hisense laser projectors come with specially designed light absorbing screens, which can be installed just few inches away from the projector; special features of these screens allow for additional clarity. The viewers don’t even need a big room for these projectors, one can watch it comfortably from a distance of just ten to eleven feet.

It's still not clear if the new L5 has HDR and 4HK capabilities, the earlier 100 inches L8 offered these features, but its price was nearly three times that of the current L5 model.

Early models of normal projectors had few downfalls against mainstream TV’s, few main of them being, the requirement of dark surroundings, a requirement of large space for installment and viewing, and short life of the bulb. However, Laser TV’s have overcome all these difficulties and are now in direct competition with traditional TV’s. The life of new Hisense Laser TV’s bulb is around 25,000 hours, so you get many years of large screen viewing before the image quality degrades and you need to change its bulb.

Apparently, leading TV manufacturers like Sony and LG have also announced plans of introducing their own models of Laser TVs, it's going to be interesting to watch which form of TVs will win hearts of the consumers. Shop for Hisense Laser TVs on Amazon.com.
