I just got the 6 series Google TV by TCL and so far really like the software, granted it's not perfect and has some quirks but in day to day use it's great.

My biggest gripe is the native apps won't push Dolby Atmos but it's a bug that apparently is being worked on.

It's not the software that's the problem but the weak processors in TVs.

It is always best to get a separate media streamer. The processors built into TVs are rather weak (even upper-tier)
Any external media device will do a much better job.

This TV has Google TV (AKA Android TV) which is a great TV OS with the right hardware. ( eg....Nvidia Shield)
Cheap TVs always struggle with it.

I’ve had mine for over a year and the wifi ability has worked consistently. If there’s ever lagging, I just unplug and restart. Quick fix. Was nice to not have to use a Roku or fire stick. Plus this has built in chromecast.

I stand corrected. This TV runs Google TV platform, not Android platform. I didn’t realize that this was a BestBuy exclusive model which is a 2021 upgraded tinkering of series 4 model launched in 2020.

Costco has a 55" TCL (not Roku) for $299.99 in store. Not sure if it's the same model.

I only see Hisense, no TCL.

Both of my personal TVs are roku versions. Imo it's much more user friendly and easier to use than android/ google tv interface ones.

That's because they have them IN STORE, not online. Our store had a bunch of them on Wednesday, they don't seem to be moving.

This is a bad deal because TCS series 4 televisions were first launched in 2020 and this BestBuy exclusive model was launched in 2021. So you are buying bulk of code technologies (processor, picture engine etc) outdated by two years and the price of these televisions was much lower in 2020 holiday season. For example, Target sold TCS series 4 65" televisions for under $250 in 2020 Black Friday
