[Best Buy] [Amazon] TCL 75" 2020 Series 6 (75R635) $1699.99

Bestbuy has the 75" TCL series 6 on sale as of today. Model number is 75R635-CA so it is the 2020 QLED version.

Decent price especially for those who wanted something brighter than the 5 Series that was on sale.

Thanks OP. I was checking every day during the Black Friday week for this to go on sale. However, I was really hoping for Costco to start carrying it for the warranty.

Now it's on sale and I can't decide :facepalm:

Nope. It is a 120hz native panel, but will not support 4K at 120hz. Think you get 1440p out of it at 120Hz over the HDMI 2.0 ports.

You realize neither console will actually push 4k120 right? It’s going to be like 1080p120 with dynamic scaling. The consoles just aren’t anywhere near that powerful.
Inflammable means flammable? What a country.

What is the return policy with best buy? Will they cover shipping? A 75 inch tv wouldn't fit in my car if I have to return it...

Still having trouble deciding between this and the X900H, anyone get a chance to see both side by side? Mostly for gaming purposes.

Noob here...can you explain what you mean by that?
Don't spend two dollars on drying clean a shirt. Donate it to the Salvation Army instead. They'll clean it and put it on a hanger. Next morning, buy it back for seventy-five cents.

I had the x900h and also but the r635. I ended up returning the x900h as the tcl had way better PQ. My decision was based solely on movie and TV watching though so gaming might make it a little more close in comparing the two.

It just means that consoles will most likely not be capable of outputting 4K content at 120hz. Likely 1080p content at 120hz at most, which would be fine on any TV that has a 120hz panel and an HDMI 2.0 input.

So not much point for the other RFDer to be holding out for HDMI 2.1 on a 120hz panel if the primary use is with a PS5 or XBox, since the console isn't powerful enough to warrant the need for HDMI 2.1 for the time being.

I think it may be a bit too early to say such a blanket statement as it will largely depend on what kind of graphics need to be rendered and how well the developers optimize their game with the console.

Games are already pushing 4K120, not upscaling or dynamic.
Star Wars Squadrons and Ori and the Will of the WIsps on Xbox Series X are 2 examples.

Great TV
I have the 65" 615.. My dad just got the 75" 635

MUCH MUCH MUCH Better PQ then mine, everything is a nice upgrade
I haven't been able to test to much HDR stuff on his, as every time I was over it was daytime

I will most likely upgrade to the 645 when it comes out, as I do want 4k120hz and more importantly VRR
Despite the naysayers "probably pc gamers"
Both PS5 and XSX will be able to target games at 4k/120hz, as they have already....

I know it's not a high paced game.. but Ori is currently running at 6k internally on XSX

definitely the best value 75" on the market, bar none! I've been considering the R635, the Sony X950H and the Samsung Q80/Q90 and there just isn't one future proofed TV that checks all the boxes.

R635 and X950H lack the HDM 2.1 , and the Samsung 4K sets no longer have 10 bit panels and are significantly pricier.

R635 will probably have the best picture/contrast in dark room - sony is in the middle for price and performance with a wide angle filter applied to screen....


anyone else waiting to see what 2021 brings?

PS if anyone has a BestBuy Canada contact i have heard BB can special order the 8 Series TCL which has significantly more dimming zones and increased brightness but again lacks the HDMI 2.1 capability.

If the console is outputting 4K120, native or not, then the TV will need HDMI 2.1 to accept it anyways as far as I can tell.

Damn, this seems like a great price, TCL 6 series seems to never go on sale. We're not even in the market for a TV and I'm still debating this. One more year though I think

HDMI 2.0 allows 4K resolution at 60 frames per second. HDMI 2.1 allows 4K at 120 FPS.

The primary target for the vast majority of next gen games is to have consistent frame rates. You have the choice of selecting "Performance" to target up to 120 FPS but the resolution will drop to less than 4K (and it's dynamic so the resolution will go up and down depending on the workload of each scene - sounds like a bad thing but it's actually a good system), or "Resolution" to to target 4K but a lower FPS, usually at 30 or 60.

Bear in mind to see 120FPS, you need a TV that can display it and most people do not as they have 60 hz native refresh panels.

I think his point is that it isn't outputting 4k120. It may be doing 120FPS but at a lower resolution, 1440p is probably best case scenario (and that can be done via HDMI 2.0 anyway). The implementation of HDMI 2.1 has also been such a mess that you probably should wait for the next models anyway.
