[Costco] Hisense 58 in. 4K Roku Smart Television 58R63G $597 Shipped, $60 5 Year Warranty Ext.

Image

Costco has the brand new 58" model 58R63G online for $547, shipped, with 2 Year Warranty. 3 Year extension is $60, For 5 Years total.
Return shipping is typically covered up to the 90 day return point, if you don't like it, or you need to exchange for better screen uniformity, which is common with most LED's. Price protection is 30 days, often up to 90 days, and if there is a later drop sub $500, you can get the difference back and also reduce the extended warranty price by half to $30 and get that back too.
Not sure if they are available In Store yet.

This is the basic Roku R6 model, so generally good for standard non-videophile use, but no high peak brightness, wide color gamut, or local dimming. As with all TV's in this price range, HDR performance will not be stellar without these features. VA panels, so black levels will usually be reasonable straight on, but viewing angles will be typically narrow. Best used in low to moderate lighting conditions.
I have a couple of older Hisense R6 models that are 2-3 years old, and I really like them. Simple, functional, PQ is decent, WIFi works and sound is actually reasonable for a flat screen. The jump from a 55" to a 58" is actually quite noticeable, so this might be a worthwhile option, if you are looking for a decent sized, budget TV.

10/15
So the 58R63G is magically back in stock with 120 units, at $597 online now.
Personally if I was intent on getting one right away, I would call CS and complain to them that you were going to buy one Thursday when the offer expiry date was still 10/14, when the price/expiry date changed suddenly.
Then they went OOS while there were still 140 in stock. Make them honor their pricing. $50 might not be worth the bother though.

Depends on the user too, I guess.
If someone buys a TV like this expecting mind blowing HDR or wants to use it in a sunroom, they have, shall we say, unreasonable expectations.
Take a look at the only other R63G review in the 50". It's like night and day.
(It is $457 shipped with $30 5 year Warranty extension, BTW)

The downside of a newer model. Lack of data and reviews.

Also the issue noted of "too dark" is very common even in sony tv's with dolby vision, it's default brightness is quite low on many tv's.

True, so many of them ship with Energy Saving as their default pic mode, and lots of people don't even notice or adjust it. Unmodified factory Picture Presets also often don't cover the best balance point on a "cheap" TV.
Aside from the narrow limits most budget TV's have in finding a reasonable settings tradeoff, when adjusted. Too bright, blooming and poorer black levels crop up, too dark, reduced ability to overcome ambient light, washed out appearance. The cheaper it is it seems the finer the line is to get decent PQ. Ultimately you do get what you pay for, I guess.

They also have 65U68G for 997.99. It is a larger size and way better quality. I wonder which is a better deal.

I wish I could find more information on this TV. The costco specs says it has 3 HDMI 2.1 ports. That seems unlikely to me. Can't find anything on this TV at all.
That's 30 minutes away, I'll be there in 10.

Try this. If you are looking for reviews/ user comments you might have to hunt for the equivalent Hisense US/Intl. models, if there are some. They often don't have similar model numbers, but starting at the newest R6 models is a good start, if you can find some. Note that certain sizes of R63G may have IPS panels instead of VA panels.

Great basement TV for the kids to play Xbox.

We have a 55" 4K Hisense from Costco, it's been fantastic, zero issues other than the remote sucks.

No easy answer, I have heard good things about the U68G's, though. Lots of personal factors there. Viewing standards, intended usage, budget, Android vs. Roku.
Limited online avail. for the 65U68G's at Costco though, if you are leaning that way. 17 only

does it matter?
good price. my 7 year old LG55 is acting strange so I don't mind it. I have same brand 43 inch fro bestbuy and happy with it.
I have seen most LED TVs last may be 7-10 years only as compared to my old CRT which is almost 30 year old.
Tried new coffee and doughnut. Found same old stale thing. expected bill of six bucks but it was 600 million. Big mistake so the guy said don't worry it is on the house. going back to McD.

What did they add to the new model? I bought the previous version 58R62G from Costco about the same time last year and it was only $386, extended warranty $29.99.
The only complaint I have so far is that the connection to Roku app on cell fails 70% of the time.
