How does this compare with the Hisense Q7G in the other Costco thread? Aside from the 3” size difference?

I can't find reviews on this anywhere. I'll be going in to see it tomorrow. HDR, UHD, 60Hz.....seems almost too good to be true.

Saw this tonight. I’m looking for a cheap tv to use outside (with the hopes of sports coming back). Think this might fit the bill.

I have this one. It's not bad, I think I paid a similar price for it during boxing day. I probably need to get a soundbar to maximize my viewing experience. Only wish that it had chromecast capabilities and one more HDMI port.

Why does everyone like smart TV now?
I like dumb TV with a good TV box more.
And what happen to the Audio output? Most TV do not have audio output these days.
How are you suppose to connect to speakers?
If I buy something that is not in deep discounted, my father will punish me; everyone will laugh at me. I will be the strange kid who doesn't fit in.

Is the technology significantly older than what TV's are like now? I have no clue the release date on this model.

Audio out from HDMI and Optical, you need external DAC if your speakers only take analog in.

It’s not “cutting-edge”, but it is 4K and HDR. HDR’s probably not gonna rate too high by AV diehards but it’s pretty standard for today I think. It’s good if you want 4K but don’t want to spend too much. Picture is pretty good, wifi’s not bad - but Roku doesn’t have a Crave app or Chromecast.

I have 3 nvidia sheilds in my home. I recently bought a TCL 6 series thinking i would hook up the nvidia shield to it. After playing with the build it roku, i decided to repurpose the nvidia sheild elsewhere. Roku is extremely capable, very clean, decent. Not as snappy as nvidia shield but for a TV for the den, its clean and has access to Plex/livetv amazon/disney+/netflix

I had a spare denon 4520ci receiver circa 2012 (pre atmos days) that i used to drive surround sound for that tv. There are 2 options to hook it up. the first is using the optical cable, but i recommend giving HDMI ARC (audio return channel) a shot. You need to enable HDMI CEC on both the tv and the receiver. Some have issues with CEC, but it works flawlessly for me. It allows 2 way data transfer across a single HDMI cable. I can use it from the Receiver outputting to the TV, but it also will push audio from the TV to the receiver. HDMI arc supports higher bandwitdth than optical (allowing you for higher quality sound formats like dolby trueHD/DTS MA) In addition, I thought i would need a harmony remote. I was pleasantly surprised when the little TCL tv remote automagically turns the receiver on/off and controls the volume on the receiver via HDMI-cec negating the need for a smart remote.
