Rtings has the new TCL reviewed: https://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/tcl/6 ... -r625-2019

8.1 not 8.3, like I thought.
"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."

Think I'll stick with my 2018 6 series

Yep. Colour gamut is definitely improved. Banding and DSE is still a problem.

Good deals on the 2018 version, probably. I think it's $430 USD in the states right now.

This is what I find interesting. From what I read the motion wasn't the best already on the R617 especially for sports etc (like hockey). For it to be even worse is pretty crazy. I am still debating going for the R617 but I really would like a fourth HDMI spot.

A little off topic but I just saw the 8 series at a Best Buy US event and I can tell you that the picture, color, black levels were incredible. Almost OLED quality...at least to the naked eye at the event.

For what it’s worth:
MSRP
8 Series
75” @ $2999 USD
65” @ $2000 USD
