I dont have either set   but a few observations :
dont expect the world @ these prices
a fair bit cheaper than comparable brand name sets

If I was forced to choose I would opt for the Hisense as its a off brand  that I have heard of before. 
If I was you I would save for a projector but for what they are   both seem decent spec wise.

edited to add
the other set has a bunch more and slightly higher reviews

i think we are upping our budget to this 58"

mostly because it completely fills the little nook in the wall within an inch

wife is hung up on it not being 120Hz

i told her she's not a gamer and its not necessary. And that there is really no need to 'future proof' a $400 TV

thoughts?

Get the basic stuff right that is most important for your application.  Must have the gotta-have stuff, don't worry about the nice-to-have niceties.

Does it have sufficient in/out? Listed as: "2 x HDMI; 1 x USB (2.0); 1 x Composite In (AV); 1 x Digital Audio Out (Optical); 1 x RF In (Terrestrial/Cable Input); 1 x Ethernet (LAN)"
^amazes me that so many TVs don't feature an analog audio out anymore.

Personally I wouldn't worry about the 60Hz refresh rate if not gaming.

This review site was helpful for me when I was selecting a new TV for my father a few years ago (link is direct to the page on that Samsung)- https://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/samsung/tu7000
it was particularly helpful in comparative assessment given the three constraints I deemed most important for that situation- screen size (to fit in existing cabinet), sufficient contrast/brightness to work in a relatively bright sunlit room, and sufficiently wide viewing angle given the seating arrangement.

In the end that $400 TV was 10 times better than the old one we had and it’s more than adequate for our needs and I’m sure we will get five years out of it before I move it to another room. I thought I’d keep the older one for another room but now that i’ve seen a newer one in my home those are going to be given away. a newer $200 tv of same size would be better than that

The pace of tech increase and cost decrease for panel TVs is astounding

i agree im just a little miffed the LG i just had to replace wasnt that old. probably 3-4 years old.

yeah i guess thats the price of planned obsolescence. remember when you were a kid and a TV was a 10+ year proposition?

+1 on Rtings.com for TV reviews - that is my go-to site.  Don't forget to go through their "Calibration Settings" page for your model to get the best out of it and to turn off all of the noise reduction, motion interpolation, and other manufacturer features that don't help or in some cases make things worse.
