Big enough difference between the 5 Series and 4 Series to not get the 55" S425 for 299 + $50 CB?

For casual viewing, 4 series is probably sufficient.

4 series does not have a wide color gamut so less colors can be reproduced and the colors that it does reproduce will likely be less vibrant.

they are both very basic models. I couldn't imagine the picture being much better on one, and they both got a 7.4 review on rtings.com

I bought the 2018 version of this TV, it was garbage, the edge lit at the bottom of the screen created flashlighting, which got worse with hdr content. Watching dark movies like Halloween was terrible. But that may just be my experience

Not sure about last years, but I bought this years and it's the best TV at that price hands down. These, I believe are last years 6 series panels (non local dimming versions).

This is great for dark movies, it gets ridiculously black and inky. It's also nice and bright. Not the brightest ever obviously, but 4K HDR content looked just fine on it.

The worst part of this TV is the viewing angles. It's pretty bad. Everything else is great though. Even has a nice premium build feel.
