Be very careful ordering from Newegg. I have been getting stuff from them for a decade and this past year the delivery times are unpredictable. Tracking may say 5-12 day delivery and it could show up anywhere from 3 days - 15 days. Plus they just drop anything off at your door with no signature or even a knock. I've been shocked opening my door to a new CPU just sitting on my doorstep in the morning up for grabs to any passer by.

Those are 65" TVs, and they're the 2018 version.
This is 55" and is the 2019 model.

According to rtings: https://www.rtings.com/tv/tools/c...5/613/1591
The TCL 6 Series/R625 2019 is very similar to the TCL 6 Series/R617 2018. The R625 has a more premium design and a much better local dimming feature, but the R617 is brighter and has better reflection handling. The R625 has a higher backlight flicker frequency, but a slower response time, and motion doesn't look as good.
The new model is better for movies/HDR but worse for sports. My primary use is movies.

I'm looking for a good 50-55" TV and would love a new TCL 6. I think I'll wait til this one is at Costco under $500. They currently have last year's 55R613 for $500.

Hmm.. the Vizio M-series M507-G1 is $400 at BestBuy. That's not bad. (My living room TV is a 65" Vizio PQ 2018... this is a second TV for a den, but I want it to be nearly as good for movies.. though I kind of don't want to double-down on Vizio, and I love the Roku platform.)

Hard sell when the 65"( from last year) is $499...and they seem to be VERY similar in performance

I guess if you didn't have the room for a 65"....

Right... I really wish there were a bigger discount for the 55" vs 65", but this is for a smaller room where a 65" wouldn't work. A 50" might even be ideal for me as the 55" is a tight squeeze, but seems like there are fewer good 50" models.

Oh wait, BrandsMart has last year's 55R615 [brandsmartusa.com] marked down from $450 to $350. That's not bad at all.

I believe those were older models (2018). This is the 2019 model.

The spec sheet on this TV doesn't indicate the picture quality you're getting. Though, it's a good solid TV for the price. I love mine for the price I paid for it ($400 after Ebay bucks back and coupon)

I haven't really kept up to date on all the new tech, but didn't I read that the 2020 TLC 6 Series would be adopting Mini-Led for around the current price points. If so, you would be crazy to buy one of these '18/'19 models.

They claim it will be same price point, but that just means $900 to $1000 for 65" when they first come out during early summer months. Probably no lower than $700 65" on Black Friday/December/early next year. The Rakuten $590 65"/ $480 55" deal was probably because professional reviewers said Hisense h9F and other competitors were a little better for higher nits brightness, better motion handling for sports, and overall score; and the 2018 tcl was also better for sports and fast motion, peak hdr/dv brightness. You will have wait up to a year for price drops no lower than $600 for 55" and $700 for 65" esp. if reviews are great. Also Best buy would have to make another 15% off tcl coupon like 2- 3 weeks ago to have any significant price reduction.
----
So if you have no other 50+" tv at home & in a rush to have something now then this maybe worth it, if you really need qled. (But 2018 non qled tcl r617, 615,613 model may be smarter choice if u can get one without DSE --lower price and/or bigger 65" screen.)
