Hisense 40-Inch 40H5500F Android Smart TV Review

The Hisense Class H55 Series 40-Inch Smart TV is a solid all-around package. The 1080p resolution display offers stunning pictures in both HD and Full HD video sources, and the sound quality will fill your living area with deep rich audio.

Hisense 40-Inch 40H5500F Class H55 Series Android Smart TV with Voice Remote (2020 Model)

It’s an excellent choice for large rooms or exceptionally noisy areas where you need to crank up the volume without distortion of any kind – if that is, you don’t mind its non-removable stand (a la most TVs these days).

Apart from this minor inconvenience though, there really isn’t much else to complain about here: it does what it promises on the box! If you’re looking for a no-frills set-top box experience then look elsewhere but as far as the latest TV technology goes, the Hisense Class H55 Series 40-Inch Smart TV is a solid all-around package.

Quick Specs:

  • Inputs & Outputs: 2 HDMI ports, 1 Ethernet port, 2 USB Ports (v 2.0), 1 Digital Audio Output (Optical), 1 RCA Composite Video Input, 1 L/R Audio Input for composite
  • Measuring 35.6 x 20.4 x 3.2 inches and 12.8 pounds (35.6 x 22.4 x 8 inches with the included stand, LxWxH, and 13 pounds), the 40h5500f has a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty and includes a remote (batteries included), power cable, and quick start guide.
  • Enjoy crisp, immersive audio from the two 7-watt speakers and DTS studio sound virtual surround sound, or wirelessly connect a compatible soundbar, headphone, or stereo components using built-in Bluetooth connectivity.
  • Enjoy all the key moments in fast-paced sports, movies, and games with motion rate 120-image processing, minimizing picture lag to create a clear image without motion blur.

What We Like:

  • Great value for the price
  • Full HD resolution
  • Wide viewing angles from the H55 Series panel
  • Built-in TV Tuner and Wi-Fi (802.11ac) connectivity to access Internet content with a wireless connection or Ethernet cable, plus HDMI input/output connections available on the rear of the set

Our Concerns:

  • Narrow vertical viewing angle if you mount your TV high up on the wall in order to save space
  • Requires assembly upon arrival – must attach legs and stand to the back of display screen.


The Hisense 40-Inch 40H5500F Class H55 Series Android Smart TV is a great smart tv for the price. It has good picture and sound quality and comes with all the apps most people will need to watch movies or play games. I would recommend this television to anyone who wants an inexpensive way of upgrading their TV experience.
