I picked up the P605 (same as P607 minus headphone jack on the remote) from Best Buy for $599 USD + MI tax (~$40 USD) + Tax/Duty (~$120 CAD) driving it across the boarder.
And? How do you like it? Tell us everything...

I'm a noob with HDR and haven't tested this yet... When watching TV/Movies I love the blacks. and you can see the dimming in action which is pretty cool.

I have yet to play any 4K content but from what I have used it for so far I am very happy with my purchase.

I received my TCL TV from Target USA, now they ship to Canada. There're several thing you need to pay attention to:
1. Sometimes, you can add a TV from the search page, when you have a lot of models on a screen but if you open that particular one's page you get "in store only". That happened to me and they shipped a TV.
2. Setup an account with BorderFree, login when checkout with target, you get 50% off on a borderfree's services ($40 off in my case).
3. For Canadians they have an offer right now, so you can get extra $20 off shipping cost.

Warranty is a pain, so it's on your own risk

Sorry to necro but I *just* got my P607 from Amazon.com. Living in Vancouver has it's perks since it's so close to the border. I shipped it free to a parcel pickup service that is literally steps from the border crossing. Took it home and watched some 4K HDR content via netflix. The difference between this and my Haier (which I returned) is day and night. The brights are brighter, the darks are darker. The Roku TV application is great to use, never laggy like those LG and Samsung TVs. Tons of offerings for streaming . Gonna use the Amazon Prime Video workaround tomorrow to check out some Grand Tour in HDR. paid $649 + $50 WA tax, and $92 CAD at the border when coming back. Total after conversion is just under $1000 CAD. Totally worth it. This TV blows many TVs priced higher than it out of the water. Highly recommended. i did run into some problems where it wouldn't play some files of my DLNA server but I'll try and fix that tomorrow.

At that point isn't it better to just skip the hassle and get a 55" M Series Vizio which is $950CAD? That Vizio is by most accounts a better TV anyway, I believe.

Local dimming and Roku TV were big points of contention for me. Lower input lag and less colour banding, advanced remote, all metal construction

What's the prime video workaround? I can't get Amazon Video to install on my TCL.
