Great deal! Was about to pull the trigger on the 43" 4-series, but this one is CHEAPER since I would have to pay tax on the 4-series and not on this one. The 5-series is a definite step-up over the 4-series.

Must be nice, still pulled the trigger though. 393.59 after tax and recycling fee. CA sucks so bad.

Just be aware of TCL's customer service. It's tough to deal with them when you have a bad panel. For them panel light bleed, a flashlight is standard. In my case, I had a problem with the broken local dimming with my six series ( was not working, something related to the hardware ), it was normal according to their tech support lol YMMV. Make sure to exchange it until you received a right panel; otherwise, you are risking to fight and waste hours with TCL's tech support.

Thanks for that. I am aware of their shoddy QA. Electronics Express will take free returns if the TV damaged within 30 days or something. Enough time for me to test the crap out of it.

That's where I bought mine. They are taking the current R617 back tomorrow via FedEx Ground. I hope the new unit won't have any problems. Make sure to report any problem with your TV as soon as possible, especially the damage, I believe its 24-48 hours to report

I know the price is tempting, but these are shoddy TVs and TCL's customer service is not the best. The panel completely died on my first unit. They replaced it with another defective unit, and then refused to furnish another replacement. I ultimately received a refund through the extended warranty I bought from Wal-Mart and will eventually have to replace the TV myself.

Do not buy TCL!

I already have a 55" TCL 6 series and I love it. Guess you had a bad unit.

This is tempting. For ~$120 more I could get the 6 series (when on sale), but have been scared off by "banding" fear-mongering FWIW, here's a comparison of the 5 and 6 series: https://www.rtings.com/tv/tools/c...17/613/619.

What's the difference between this and the one at Costco (55s423) for 340?

Thanks. I didn't realize they were different years. Costco one is 2 models old and this is 1 model behind the 6.
