Can someone else to me in layman's terms why 60Hz is bad? I watch mainly movies and some Netflix. TIA.
Also, I love my 55" TCL S405. Will this be a big step up?

Basically, when media (a movie, or tv show, or game) is displayed on your TV, it is displayed in a series of pictures (or frames) projected at a rate so fast, your eyes perceive it as motion and fluid. The refresh rate is essentially the number of frames the device can show per second. The higher the refresh rate, the more frames per second your TV can put out, and the more "smooth" or fluid the motion is that you see.

For your average viewer, 60Hz is not going to be noticeably bad. However, if you put a 60Hz and 120Hz TV next to each other, or you have a decent amount of experience watching 120Hz devices, it will become much more noticeable. So it's not that 60Hz is inherently bad, I just think the complaints are that $1300 is a relatively high price point for a device that only outputs at 60Hz.

You can find a few examples, but this is just one website [testufo.com] that kind of shows the difference.

*EDIT: Seems trying to remember off the top of my head, I've mixed up video frames and refresh rate just a bit. While I'm somewhat correct, what I described above with frames is really more on the source of your content (how many frames make up the Bluray or stream of what you're watching). Refresh rate is similar, but independent from video frame rate. It's basically just the number of times your TV wipes out and then reconstructs the image on your screen, per second, kind of like shaking an Etch-A-Sketch and then re-drawing the image. More here [lifewire.com].

The 75" Series 6 was announced at CES in January, but the 55 & 65 inch models were out in 2018.

Genuine question - why are the price differences between 55, 65, and 75 inch TVs so steep? Like a 55 goes for $350 and a 75 for $1000+

Different equipment, harder to keep consistency.. look at the jumps from 75 to 85 also..

We have a family living room opening to patio, entrance from formal living and entrance from kitchen, with kitchen in the middle of the house. We are planning to mount the 75 on to the brick fireplace. Is this a good angle to view from all directions? Is it advisable to place tv on top of the fireplace ?

How bad are the viewing angles on the 43"? Is it going to be crummy as a monitor? Rtings rates it fairly high in that regard.
It should be fine as a monitor. I had 2 10yr+ old tvs go bad, so I bought the 43" first and had it temporarily in the family room. Wasn't the ideal setup but the viewing angles were bad if you were sitting off to the side. Once I bought the 75" and moved the 43" to the bedroom, it has not been an issue for viewing from either side of a King bed.

If you are sensitive to motion blur then the TCL 6 series arent the TV you want to get. I seem to be in the minority that is bothered by it on these tvs and i dont even watch sports. The tv response time isnt fast enough so there is a smearing effect when movement occurs on the screen resulting in a blur or loss of detail. Had not been bothered by this on previous tvs. I had one with bad banding that i returned and i noticed the blur on both that one and the replacement set. Im passed the return window and am looking forward to my next upgrade in two years. Other than that i love everything else about the tv. Hdr brightness and black levels are fantastic. Viewing angles dont get too washed out if sitting at an angle or again maybe i dont find that to bother me as much.

I assume that its a VA panel like almost every other tv so it would have bad viewing angles like almost every other tv. If viewing angle is important the Sony X850F is an IPS screen and priced comparatively when on sale. Ive seen them go for $1300 for the 75"
and that IPS panel that makes black look grey

No thanks...I will try to sit in front of the TV and have a better black level with a VA panel

If I buy from BB online, can I return (or exchange) at my local store??
From my past experience with BB (and it was a laptop) it is only if they carry that model in the store. Probably depends on the store manager also.

Thanks. Is the TCL S405 I have 60Hz? I have no issues with that one...

I wouldn't say 60Hz is bad, it's just standard. 120Hz will make fast motions less blurry (action movies, sports).

Also, there's native 120Hz and artificial 120Hz. Many manufacturers advertise "120Hz" but it's actually a native 60Hz panel with artificial 120Hz processing. Whenever TCL advertises "120Hz CMI", it's artificial (usually).

Native 120 Hz is what people want. I have the same TV as you with 120 Hz CMI (yours is the same), and an LG TV with 120 Hz native, and there's a clear difference.

Regarding whether the TVs on this post will be a big step up, if you put them side by side, you'll notice a difference. But if you love the one you already have, then ride that train til your TV dies.

The 6 series here is more premium (better quality) than Costco's, which is TCL's budget line.
