This is a great television for people who have an antenna. It has a grid style guide that requires no service -- not even an internet connection. If you plug a 16g usb drive into the television, you can pause, rewind, and fast forward through a 90 minute buffer.

While it has all the smarts of a Roku streamer, this television can be configured to default to the last input used so people with an antenna come up in broadcast television and those with a TiVo of other device pop right into that.

The picture loses something at wide angles, but I'm happy with it and the sound is good enough that I rarely (as in never) turn on my soundbar.

Here is the kicker. One of these failed under warranty. After about ten minutes on the phone, they scheduled a guy to repair the tv in my home.

I own two of these, have bought one for my in-laws (who I like) and recommended the set to a lot of very happy people.

The cheapest I remember the 55" Vizio-M being was a $450 BF price at Costco. After tax, it was almost $500. That's more than a 'few dollars'.
At $500, you might as well get a 6-series TCL and it'll be significantly better than a Vizio.

Might want to be wary of this one... I bought a couple of this same model brand new and both had dead pixels and lots of very distracting blacklight bleed. TCL seems to have quality control issues with their panels. Luckily I bought them from Walmart.com and was able to return them to the local Walmart no questions asked. I'd dread having to return it to Rakuten, potentially multiple times, to get a decent panel. I spent a few dollars more for a Vizio M-Series 55" 4k UHD HDR Smart TV and found it had a significantly better picture quality.

Also the refresh rate is NOT 120hz, this is a blatant lie by the manufacturer. This is definitely a 60hz panel.

It also lacks Wide Color Gamut so while it has HDR you won't really get the full benefit of HDR and the colors will look washed out and lack the pop of a panel with WCG.

Refurbished maybe.. $320 is a Front Page price on this S405, which has staying power

Call it for what it is... a Value TV that is really good for the money. And if you want something inexpensive for gaming or the bedroom, your in luck!

That's true, but I can tell you that the Netflix HDR content (e.g. A Series of Unfortunate Events) still looks pretty damn good on the 65" model. Granted, I haven't done a big on/off comparison using multiple scenes, etc.

That said, I also have a HTPC hooked up to it, and putting Windows 10 in HDR mode looks absolutely terrible. So I definitely wouldn't buy it for HDR, but it's a great TV for the price.

Totally get it's not 10 bit HDR DCIP3 but it's also $320... are you looking for an SK9000 or a QLED 9 series for this price😀
