Design and connectivity of the Hisense 49M3000
We have a somewhat classic model in terms of design for the mid-range where it is located. Besides, his profile is very deep and it is not at all thin compared to other models within said mid-range. We have some very thin frames within another very thin overframe that runs through the entire panel of this model. He frame or bottom bezel is silver and just as fine (something to be thankful for) with what the brand appears in tiny right in the center in favor of said thinness and to give a touch of thinness and simplicity to the general design of the Hisense 49M3000. Their bases almost straight and somewhat curved to slightly raise this Hisense model placed diagonally, they are dedicated to fixing and stabilizing the panel with shiny material and rounded and flat touches depending on where you look at them.
In terms of connectivity, we have plenty: we have 4 HDMI (2 ports v1.4 and two other v2.0) and 3 USB (one of them 3.0 and the other two 2.0) with recording function and can do Time Shift (to stop the live broadcast), LAN or Ethernet, av (although we will need an adapter), eComponent and composite video input in addition to the audio and digital audio outputs. We also have CI + version 3.0 and WIFI although we miss the bluetooth connection. Tuners? Well, of all colors; digital with TDT2, of satellite, cable and of course analog. We do not have a 3D image.
Image quality and general functions
This mid-range Hisense 49M3000 boasts impressive image quality 4K Ultra HD with 4K upscaling any incoming image to the TV. This is where the result is not very good. Let us bear in mind that for a good rescaling to take place we have to go to certain brands and especially to the high ranges of the market since only there will we have processors capable of fulfilling this promise in terms of quality and image sharpness. Of course, in image quality this Hisense 49M3000 fully complies. It is also a panel with a 4K image quality supported by some 800 Hz SMR which gives you more than decent picture fluency for a picture that requires great motion response without flickering, shaking or optical strain like some sports, video games or action movies.
If we talk about sound we talk about 16 Watts in total divided into two 8W speakers with Dolby MS10 and in stereo. Once again history repeats itself: ample space to put in more sound power and once again we fell short. This does not mean that we are dealing with a smart TV with poor sound quality, but rather the architecture of the design and space that this non-ultra slim design gives it.
Software analysis / SmartTV
We enter fully to talk about the operating system of this Hisense 49M3000 and it is right here where we get a surprise. And is that this system Vidaa TV It gives a very good impression as soon as you see it for its original and striking design that gives us the impression of simplicity and clarity accompanied by its ease of use. The fluency of navigation reminds us of other systems from other major brands, even famous and award-winning operating systems that are slower or even more uncomfortable to handle.
This operating system is based on Android TV and despite some quarrels with them after putting the Play Store in its first versions now we no longer have said store but we do have more than twenty available android applications and a Opera browser with its own store to which to add additional plugins. We have the main applications such as Netflix, YouTube … This Vidaa TV has several sections, among which we highlight a multimedia one in which we can access content shared by DLNA with our smart TV or inserted through our USB port by pendrive or external hard drive. Another section houses the video-on-demand multimedia content applications so that we only have these types of applications in view and are not mixed with others such as games for example. It also has the option of order by use so that in the first row we will find the most used applications.
