Hi guys, it's my first post.
Costco has the TCL 4k Roku TV for only $539.99 in-store.
Model is 55UP120, the P stands for premium as in upgraded stand support Dolby Digital Plus and 802.11ac.
Better than the 55US5800 that Walmart sell for $548.

I only had it for one night, picture right of the box is pretty good, very bright display, pretty deep blacks. Only some darkening in the corners. Judder is noticeable as native refresh rate is only 60Hz. No soap opera effect whatsoever but I couldn't find any motion settings.
For $593 with CA tax I couldn't be happier.
2 years warranty and 90 days return policy. Squaretrade is available for $69.99.

4 HDMI 2.0 Inputs w/ HDCP 2.2(1 ARC)
1 USB 2.0
Native refresh rate: 60Hz

60hz refresh rate kills the deal

I posted the Walmart one. This is a diff model and cheaper at that so this is not a repost.

Better imo since its Costco and cheaper

The other is native 60hz too but it advertises that fast motion 120hz. Does this also? How does it look with it turned on? I would buy if it was 60-65"

This one is better than the Walmart model. It has much better speakers, different feet stands and ac wifi.
Also Wal-Mart's return policy for smart TVs is only 15 days (they claim them as computers).

Picture is really great with deep blacks. It is 60Hz but I don't mind the judder that much. If it bother you that much, get the panasonic with 120Hz for $599.

I also bought and returned the LG 55UF6450. I compared both side by side. The TCL's picture is much brighter and the blacks are much darker. Both are very crisp at 4k.
Also, I had to mount both and LG's input are all facing outward making the cables kink on the wall. The TCL's are facing right.
Roku's interface is very nice and smooth to use, though the settings are not as detailed as the LG's.
The remote is great.

Thanks.I am going to rely on your review and return the LG first. Blacks look like bluish gray Frown.

I think that's pretty much where all the 4k tvs are. Some have different software enhancements that allow them to say 120, but they're all 60hz.There are faster refresh rates in higher end 4k tvs. I don't really follow that market, so I'm not sure what the bottom end of that price range would be. Don't know how much 4k 120hz content is out there.
