Starting 11/25 Costco will have the highly rated TCL 6-Series 55" 4K TV for sale for $399.99. It is posted in their most recent mailer. This is one of the best budget TVs on the market.

Buying from Costco will add 1 year of warranty and using their Visa adds another 2 years for the total of 4 years of warranty for free. As great as this TV is there were some quality issues which is why extended warranty is highly desirable.

I picked this up from Costco yesterday, set it up last night. I consider myself "above average" when it comes to caring about picture quality, brightness, and crisp/clean motion.
Watched some shows on it last night, and it is definitely eye-catching, the picture quality is great. The brightness is adjustable, and it could go plenty bright. Watched something today in the room with tons of sunlight (and snow outside!) and it still shines light enough to see from across the room.
Played some Madden on Xbox One as well. I have ZERO complaints. I was looking for flaws and couldn't find a single one.
I was very pleased with the Roku OS, the voice remote, and the responsiveness of the remote in general. You don't even have to point the remote at the TV for it to work, which is great!
Overall, 10/10, would recommend it. Plus, with it being Costco, if you don't end up liking it, just take it back. I won't be doing it, I'll be enjoying this TV for a long time.
(I also own the TCL 4 series in the same screen size. Could rave about that one as well. Biggest difference to me is the responsiveness in operating the Roku OS, as well as the picture quality. It is noticeably better.)

I bought this TV for the same price a few weeks back. Such a good deal for the price in my opinion. Great for the "everyday watching" stuff. Very bright.

For some reason this TV is doing "automatic game mode" with my Xbox One S. It's a fantastic feature but I thought it was some HDMI 2.1 thing. Been trying to find the right place to bring it up.

55R613 connected directly to Xbox One S. Flips to game mode when I go from Netflix to starting up a game.

If you are specifically wanting this for movies, especially dark room movies, I'd get the 2019 model even if you have a wait a bit for the right price Just more color. I watched a lot of content side by side between the 2019 and 2018 when they were both in my house. But if you're mostly getting this TV for cable/everyday use save the money and buy the 2018. I liked it better than the 2019 in the living room watching football. Motion seemed better on the 2018 too which was odd.

Hope this helps someone if they are curious.

Can't match the specs of this TV at a lower price anywhere. Rerun of the previous deal from a few weeks ago (bought it then), but still tops for value.

One post recommended checking for vertical banding (see later post), and to be ready to return or exchange. The unit we received did have slight banding effects with test screens, but not detectable with normal viewing. Everything else fine. Amazingly bright, like hurts your eyes unless afternoon sun is streaming in. Did not and will not give it Internet access.

Overall, happy so far...

Picked up one last go around. First had a few dead pixels and bad banding. Exchanged it out and the second one is pretty close to perfect.

I also have the 2019 Vizio PX and beyond some motion on sports, they really don't look that much different.

Not sure you can beat this TV for 400 bucks. Pretty much the perfect bedroom TV.

Yes, the TCL 65" 6 series (item link below) will go on sale for $599 on Costco.com on Thanksgiving day and in stores on Black Friday. I believe that's the 2019 model but someone can correct me if I'm wrong. Correction it's the 2018 model. It's shown in the following link to the Costco Holiday Savings Offers.
