I placed an order for this tv this morning. But when I get an email with the order details, model of the tv is showing me as 50r6109. Which is different model than this one. I’m not sure which model I’ll get but if I get 50r6109 I’ll just return it. Because that’s 2019 model and this one is 2020

Yeah just ordered one as well. Showing the correct item number (#8696350), but shows model number of 50R6109 instead of 50R61G. So we shall see what comes Smiling Face With Open Mouth

Thank OP. I was looking at this very TV the other night in the Oshawa store. They only had the display unit but checked for me and 12 on order. In store price is $324.99. Grabbed one online instead of taking my chances as no timeline to get stock.

Just a word of caution...many of these cheap Chinese "smart" tv's don't allow you to change the picture settings for any of the built in apps...so you're stuck with the "default" picture settings when using the built in apps. The defaults on these cheap Chinese tv's are usually just about the absolute worst settings available...I've owned about a half a dozen different ones, and it has been this way with every one. The picture using the built in apps is SO BAD, they're unusable, IMHO. On the other hand....when paired with something that allows fine control over the signal, AND being able to apply any changes to picture settings in the set, they can look very nice. I have an AppleTV 4K, and combined with a cheap Haier 4K tv, I can get very good images, just not with any built in apps...

If I plan to use it mostly with a cable box (Rogers), how is the picture?

Isn't it better to buy it online for 3$ more?

This tv uses Roku. Haier use their own shitty OS. Hisense tvs that use proprietary OS (VIDAA) are also terrible. You want to find ones that use third party platforms like Roku or Android TV or whatever

I can't speak to other operating systems, but Roku based TVs have full control of the picture settings for the Roku App (channels). I agree though one more reason to stay away from 2nd tier TVs with unknown, unsupported, smart features. I'd stick with Roku or Android.

In 2019/2020, this is a Good Bedroom TV.
In 2017/2018, this is a Reasonable Family Room TV.

If you're pinching pennies, this is better than fine, but going one up to the Q7G/Q8G rewards the eyes.

Both market demographics have valid reasons to like their respective TVs.

Canadian and US model numbers are different, but you can look for current reviews/comments for R6 models to compare. H is Android based, R is Roku based, for Hisense, and the first number generally specifies the series, even between countries, but it is not always comparable 100% of the time.

Yep it was a 2019 R6 model. There was an R6209 in some sizes at Costco in between.
