[Costco] HOT deal - TCL 75-in. 4K HDR Roku Smart TV 75S533CA ($999.97) ($799.97 in store)

I think the regular price online is around 1300$

A good entry level 75" tv.

Yeah I literally just bought the 65in version of this for about the same price last weekend and it's a really great TV.

I don't exactly trust TCL/ any Smart TV firmware writer very much so I am not connecting it to the internet but I really like the Roku OS as a general TV OS. It's snappy, intuitive, and everything is where you'd expect in terms of brightness / picture and sound controls. HDMI ARC worked perfectly with my soundbar to synchronize sound between them (once I enabled CEC) and the CEC works flawlessly with my Series X. It even turns on game mode when a game starts and turns it off when Netflix starts, etc.

If you cant tolerate a 3" yellow strip around the sides of the screen its a great deal. Also be mindful of the blooming and poor quality control like not threading the screw holes for attaching the legs..... I went through two of these. At least Costco was very easy to deal with on returns.

This is a pretty good TV for the price, local dimming, qled, Dolby vision...etc. I have the 55" version and it's amazing and my cousin has the 65". People keep talking about yellow bands and what not but unless you like being nit picky 24/7 or watch all white content you really won't notice it, I mean I've had it for months now and haven't even noticed it once other then when I was doing an all white test.

Beware of panel lottery of this series of tcl TVs, for this price range, stick to hisense for bigger size and consistent quality

I've had mine for 2m and am failing to see this 3" yellow strip. You seem very salty about tcl based on your post.

I got a 65” 5 series. If you put on a white background (YouTube has some) you can see some uneven lighting around the sides. Mine looks yellowish from angles.

Pain. Bought this set for my parents last November. Paid $1489. It's a pretty nice TV, no complaints from them.

My Hisense broke after a year whereas my TCL series 6 has been going strong for 2 years. Imo the quality between the two brands is pretty similar, might even say TCL is slightly better

I have 65" 6 series TCL since black friday of last year, does everything I want. Hooked up to a Nvidia Shield TV, HDMI ARC works with a Samsung Soundbar. Pretty happy with the value.
I just bought a 75" 5 series on the weekend tho for $1299 on Amazon; these are good TVs

Can anyone please provide feedback on this Samsung model.
rtings has a comparison of these models.
https://www.rtings.com/tv/tools/compare ... shold=0.10
in short the TCL 5 series seems to score better on most categories.
and I think the Roku is a better OS than the Tizen in my limited experience.

What's the difference between the S533 and the S535 (the one that actually has good reviews)?

My understanding they're the same TV rebranded for Costco.
