TCL 55R617 55-Inch 4K Ultra HD Roku Smart LED TV (2018 Model) $599 at Greentoe

Yesterday I put in offer for the TCL 55R617 for $549 and today I received a counter for $599. I accepted.

If I bought this today at Best Buy I would have paid $646.79 including sales tax and not gotten the upgraded remote.

If I bought this today at Amazon I would have paid $700.67 including sales tax.

Maybe there's something better coming down for BF but all in all I'm happy with the deal.

This panel may be unsuitable for PC Monitor use

The panel does render 4:4:4, but applies a final output which is not 1:1 pixel mapping.

The bottom image supplied by Rting Confirms crosshatch dithering pattern

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

why is this post being downvoted given that it is indeed the lowest price available right now (granted not as good as the TCLUPGRADE code deal)

Costco had a 55 inch Roku 4k for only $329.

TCL has done mainly cosmetic changes to 2018 version compared to 2017.
Not the same TV...

R617 is the best HDR TV you can get in this price range, even competitive to more expensive TV.

That is completely wrong, both sets are vastly different

Can you help me understand why you and other people make these posts? You do know that manufacturers make more than one model (with different specs) at the same screen sizes?

No tax, no shipping, that's where the magic happens. Here in AZ tax is just under 10%.

If you search the forums for Greentoe you'll come up with a lot of results. I had never heard of them either before last week.
