Got the 55 inch version, and it looks brand new. However, this TV is not very bright. I need to find a 55 inch TV, for under $500, that gets a lot brighter. TCL 6 series is not an option for me, due to poor gray uniformity.

Believe it or not the Hisense TVs are great. If you get thetalk to your ones and you can get last year's 55-inch for 399 or lower.if they have Android TV built-in which is not all that bad.. do not get the Roku ones.. but the newer ones even have Samsung panels in them but they are very bright

What do you use for picture settings? My 55" doesn't seem bright enough, and I have an FA01 Samsung panel.

I use the dynamic picture setting which seems to be the brightest.

According to rtings...

"If you don't care about image accuracy, you can obtain higher brightness levels. We were able to reach 396 nits on the 'Movie' Picture Mode and 'Warm 1' Color Tone. Other picture modes were not brighter, which is unexpected."

It's pretty good? I dunno, everyone will have specific desires in a TV & viewing scenarios that make it different. If you never watch sports for example some TVs which would be 100% garbage to some people become excellent values to you.

This is a refurbished unit for an OK price. If your needs are pretty simple (and this TV is like one tier up? from the entry level) there are cheaper TVs. My personal feelings are that if you're looking for a TV in this category you should get cheaper and realize it's a basic TV, or buy actually used. It's kind of a no-man's-land where just a few hundred can get you a bomb TV (around 1000 for a 65") and a few hundred less often doesn't lose you much.

If I was looking for an entry level TV i'd probably just poach one of the <$550 units with free delivery that pop up all the time, or save tons of money and just get a $250 hisense for now and wait. I have an adequate 50 or 52" unit and am waiting for a deal on a TV that'll be a true upgrade, not just newer and bigger. Low end TVs are _largely_ (with a few exceptions) a solved engineering problem that often just mix and match software/plastic pieces on the same 3 panels. I'm not an expert, trying to give my personal opinion. someone may be able to make a better technical case Smilie
