Bought this refurbished unit from Walmart when this was up last week (but was only for in store pickup at the time).

The remote was faulty, but managed to sync my other TCL remote and it works fine. Ran all the screen tests - there's no dirty screen effect. There's slight vertical banding, but it's less noticeable than my other 65r617.

Someone else posted that the unit they got from the same deal was cracked, so YMMV with these refurbished TV's. Worth the risk in my opinion, as you have 90 days to return.

Rolled the dice again. Ordered last week, then got cancelled from being damaged during shipment. They gave me a $25 off promo code for the trouble that I applied towards this. So if you get a lemon this go around, may be worth chatting with CS for promo. Good luck to all that purchase!

Are these panel issues common with the 6 series only? Every time someone mentions the TCL panel lottery it has to do with the 6 series, I almost never hear this about the 4 or 5 series. Also, which tests should one run to check if their panels are good?

It seemed to be in only in the 6-series. I picked up this one from Walmart this week and there is a vertical banding issue. However, I don't find it particularly annoying so I'm going to keep mine.

Had to return my 65r617 due to vertical banding... also it's a known issue trying to sync sound if you are using a sound bar. I'd avoid these TCLs if you are using a sound bar... as I believe the issue is not addressable.

Luckily saw this and was able to get one, when I went back to see if there was a warranty option you could add, it said only 6 left, now it says only 1 left, so going fast, probably all gone again very soon.

and OOS

It's only with the 6 series because of the "backlighting" zones. 4 and 5 series are edge lit (from the sides) IIRC...

The issue is seeing the actual zones of lights. I think it's an issues with a lot of back lit TVs 🤷 ♂️I have a Vizio P series and it has some banding, but my brain ignores it because I don't notice anymore... Game on it plenty too. Oh and I bought a 5 series to game on as well with no issues and can't beat the price 😉

Nothing wrong connecting my sound bar

Ooof, sucks you didn't find out until after you hung it up. Did you pick it it yourself or have it shipped? Could have been damaged from shipping.

If I buy one, I'm opening it at the store and making them check it for me.
