Thought I would bless you guys with this amazing deal!

That's the best price you will find for a NEW 65" 4K tv. Better than Black Friday prices I think personally.

Here is the owners manual: RCA 4K TV [brandsmartusa.com]

For those PC guys who want to know, thanks to user octiny

This TV does support 4:4:4 chroma @ 60hz 4k. You must have a desktop Nvidia Maxwell series card to run 4:4:4 chroma 4k 60hz (950/960/970/980/980ti/Titan X) These are the only video cards on the market that have an HDMI 2.0 output.

For all 4K connections, keep the length of HDMI cable to a minimum, preferably 15 feet at the most for 4K@60Hz, any longer then only 30Hz may work


Suggested picture settings per user menger50 Not sure what kind of source this was done on, see below for more specific suggestions
  • Picture mode: User
  • Brightness: 43 - also try 40-42, 47, 49 -never above 49, look for no more detail being added as you go up and screen starting to go too white/light. usually 43 or 47.
  • Contrast: 54 - GeForce 9X0 video card sources= 60, X1 cable 33-35
  • Color: 40 - sometimes 38 (X1), sometimes 45 (Roku 4)
  • Tint: 48
  • Sharpness: 60 - also try 20 and 100.
  • Color Mode: Normal
  • Screen Size: Full 100% ("Bit by Bit in 4k)
  • Noise Reduction: Off
  • Dynamic Contrast: Off
  • Video Style: Video (Graphics for video games, console or PC)
  • MFC Effect: Low (Off for gaming)

Tweaks per user mmmmm...beer from a previous post by user danbfree

5/10/16 - There also IS a picture quality update for this that you have to go into the hidden menu to do. Go here: http://rca4tv.com/support/downloads.asp
Enter your serial number from the white sticker on the left side of the TV and download from link it provides.
Then extract the three files to a FAT32 formatted thumb drive.
Put the thumb drive in the USB slot on TV
Enter "secret" menu (Menu 11147) You will notice a date/version number in red at the bottom of the menu if the TV recognizes the files right.
Go to Other
Then PQ update(USB)
Select Yes and OK
Let it do it's thing, it will reboot when done.



When all else fails and if you think it looks like garbage/"washed out"/"dingy", use the "Reset All" option and start over... mine went all crazy washed out and dull looking after tweaking it too much and after the "Reset All" it looks better than ever. - danbfree

I bought one of these last week and I'm keeping it. Its not a videophile product by any means, but if you're a regular joe you'll like it. Its a good looking tv. Four HDMI 2.0/HDCP 2.2 inputs, very good 4k upscaling. It has an old 3400 roku stick either installed under a cover, or in my case it came in a little box and I had to install it. The stick does 1080p, not 4k of course. It has universal search across streaming providers but does not have the new netflix app with profiles. I'm not sure if you could upgrade to a newer stick and still use the RCA supplied remote with roku buttons on it, but you can remove it and replace it with a streaming box of your choice and use a separate remote.

Calibrating it is tough, but several people (avsforum and in a prior thread here) have gotten some good starting numbers. Seems many of the panels have minor issues, so they may be factory seconds. Mine had a little hazy area at all four corners but after rubbing it with a micro towel its almost gone. I can only see it on a pure black screen and movies like Gravity with a lot of black space scenes look fine.

My PC outputs 4k video, and a downloaded 4k@60 youtube video looks awesome on it. It upscales netflix, xbox one and directv 1080p signals beautifully.

The remote is horrible. It seems made backwards. The circular arrow/select ring at the top is hard to use since its at the end of the remote. The menus exit out very fast so you'll get pissed at it a few times when you're calibrating and it dumps you out into the video. I was able to pair an older roku enhanced remote with it, which is 90% of my usage. I also had no trouble getting it to work with my directv remote.

Basically I'm thrilled with it for <$800 with a 90 day return and two year warranty.

There's a prior thread here and an avsforum thread where they state the panel maker...aum or something like that. Common supplier for low-mid range sets.

Its not a $1200 or $1500 tv, but its about the only show in town with the specs and the size at this price.

This is actually a TCL TV, RCA's name was bought by Sony and then licensed out to other companies with lesser known brands.

TCL makes decent TVs though and for the price, this seems like a good deal, but I would be wary of upscaling and other features. Personally, I wouldn't buy this TV.

I needed a cheap TV recently, and bought the 48" TCL with Roku built in. I like it. The picture is very good.

Yes a fun fact is they use the same panels that Samsung uses in their low and mid tier TVs.

Unless you've been watching cheap sets for the past 15 years, don't buy it. Colors are dull, and calibration options are very limited. You're primarily going to be watching 1080p feeds for the next few years, and in my limited experience a 10 year old 720p plasma blew this out of the water in IQ with TV sources (mostly 1080i/1080p). I returned it.

with HDMI 2 option, seems like a very good deal for a 65" TV.
