Australian pricing and availability detailed for Hisenses' 2019 TV range

Hisense has detailed just how much their 2019 TV range will cost and where you'll be able to find it in Australia.

“We’re very excited to be bringing our latest ULED range to market. We are confident it will continue to be a competitive option for consumers as Hisense relentlessly pushes the boundaries in picture and sound quality while incorporating the latest AI and voice control technology,” said Andre Iannuzzi, Head of Marketing at Hisense Australia.

There's a dual-focus on picture quality and usability here. The new range will combine all the usual suspects -  Dolby Vision HDR, Dolby Atmos, Quantum Dots, Wide Colour Gamut and Ultra Local Dimming - with new Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant capabilities that put Hisense in with where rivals LG and Samsung sit.

The Hisense R6 ULED represents the bottom-end of the range. It's available in six sizes (43-inch, 50-inch, 55-inch, 65-inch, 75-inch and 85-inch) and comes Alexa-enabled and ready to support UHD and HDR10 content. The R6 will be available from early May with pricing starting at $849.

Then, the Hisense Series G ups the ante and ditches Hisenses' usual VIDAA smart UI for Android TV. The Series G is available in three sizes (50-inch, 55-inch, 65-inch) and offers both built-in Google Assistant capabilities and support for Dolby Vision HDR content. In Australia, the Series G will be available from late-May with pricing starting at $1249.

The Hisense R7 series is set to arrive in mid-May with four sizes available (50-inch, 55-inch, 65-inch and 75-inch). Envisioned as a natural step-up over the R6, the R7 supports both Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos and lets you choose between using Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant. Pricing for the R7 series starts at $1499.

Available only in two-sizes (65-inch and 75-inch), the Hisense R8 will be available in July at a starting price of $2999. The main difference between it and the R7 is the integration of Quantum Dots. For more on QLED TVs, click here.

Finally, there's the R9 series. Available in two sizes (65-inch and 75-inch), it's the biggest and baddest TV in the lineup. It boasts everything you'll find in the R8 plus 2500 nits of peak brightness and a Prime Array backlighting. Unfortunately, as good as all that sounds, local pricing and availability of the Hisense R9 TV is still to be confirmed.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
