This monitor may be unsuitable as a PC Monitor..

ONLY the 43 inch model does 1:1 mapping without the cross hatch pattern..

"Rting only tested the 43 inch model."

49 inch and above ALL HAVE the crosshatch pattern. not 1:1 mapping.

The bottom image supplied by Rting Confirms crosshatch pattern on the 49 inch and 55 inch Panels.

We don't have photos of the 65 inch , but it is almost 100% certain that it will be present.

This can not be turned off.

The Crosshatch pattern also extends to the TCL s4-series s5-series P6-series and R6-series from both THIS year and LAST year's

Argh. Every day I wake up hoping for a deal on the 55R617. Doubt it's happening. They have deals on every TV but that one. I'm just going to pay retail

Regarding picture quality, anyone know if this is significantly better than the cheapo Hisense R7 here?
Really dislike washed out or gray looking blacks and I don't know much.

Are these the ones with ads in the roku screen?

Also, both Walmart and Amazon say their model number is "55S517" while the Bestbuy one is listed as "55S515". What's the difference?
The 517 has a better remote

I bought this mid July for about $430 and have absolutely no regrets. I am also using this as a PC 4K monitor and I love the amount of real estate I have now for my computer.

I would buy another one if I need it -- but I don't at the moment.

I tried waiting awhile myself and picked one up on Amazon earlier this year when camera beach had it for 650 but no tax. Used some of my Amazon 5% cash back credit to ease the pain lol(and got 5% back on the remaining balance). Don't regret it one bit! Great television for gaming for the low input lag as well as 4k movies. Hdr is great considering the price point too. Overall awesome television Smilie

On tvs that are VA-panel (most of them nowadays), we don't worry about washed out /grey blacks any more.

We mostly worry about Black CRUSH, which is the opposite problem..

Because they're trying to sell these against store model comparisons, the default settings exaggerate the Dark colors to push the appearance of highlights.

Without calibration, every tv will have this problem..

But getting a Fully calibrated image is an extreme hassle and only works on PC at the moment.

Calibration through gamma values in tv settings is only rudimentary.


It's unfortunate, but it'll look -good enough- for most people.

Debating between this one and the $329 4-series @Costco. It will be placed in a bedroom for streaming and some light console gaming. Is the picture quality improvement significant enough to justify the difference in price and warranty?

I refuse to buy these TV because of the ads. If someone can show me how to get rid of them, let me know.

It's only 50 bucks off, is this really a deal?
I believe MSRP was 499 or 549 which was a good deal already considering it's specs

Theyre not as intrusive as other ads, it's a box only on the home screen that suggests free content to watch I believe. If you don't connect the tv to your network you don't gets ads however
