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

Can't find much info about this specific model (must be newer?), but solid deal on a 4 Series TCL. MSRP for this particular model appears to be 370.

Does anyone know if you can turn off the motion interpolation for this model? I know the older 4-series models did not allow users to turn that setting off.

looks okay, probably nice for the bedroom but I wouldn't use this as your main tv.

walmart and bestbuy black friday ads are due out shortly so wait to see what they offer.

Forget WalMart.
Best Buy looks like they've moved away from Roku over to Fire TV. All their newer ads have few if any roku.

I believe he means deals on the 55R617 are rare and haven't been in any of the early BF ads so far.
Best Buy is the last hope of a deal and their version has a crappy remote.

if it's anything like the last 55S 4 series then download the Roku App for tweaking. Look in the TCL threads for calibration wiki, saved me from returning mine. It's been a great tv for over six months of heavy use.

According to Rtings.com, this is the same as the 2017 4-series with only cosmetic differences:

Quote from Rtings :
Update 10/24/2018: The S405/403/401 are gradually being replaced by the S425/423/421. Internally, they are the exact same TV. The only changes are cosmetic. This is a gradual roll-out, so some areas may still sell the S405.
Therefore, everything in their review [rtings.com]still applies.

Quote from ChaoticThrifty
:
Does anyone know if you can turn off the motion interpolation for this model? I know the older 4-series models did not allow users to turn that setting off.
This TV does not even have a motion interpolation option to begin with, so you're safe:

Quote from Rtings :
The S405 offers no motion interpolation options, so it cannot produce smoothed video, also know as the soap opera effect.

Can't decide between this and the TCL S517 ($399 at bestbuy.com).
Almost the same according to rtings [rtings.com].

Cheaper at Costco though, and more warranty...
