75" (Sale $2498, Reg $2998)
https://www.costco.ca/sony-75-in.-4k-hd ... 78310.html

Features:
  • 4K HDR, HLG, Dolby Vision
  • Google TV
  • Compatible with AirPlay 2, Google Assistant
  • TRILUMINOS™ Pro
  • 4 × HDMI
I can't tell for the other TVs but when I bought my 75" last month, regular price was $3298 but now show $2998. Depending on how you look at it, it range from 17% savings to 25% :)

Available at Best Buy, Costco, Brick, etc. I choose Costco because it has the best warranty and cheap ($99).

I think it might drop a bit more for BF but there's less and less stock so maybe a good price point for a non OLED TV.

I heard that next week Costco is doing one of those spend $XXX get $XXX Costco cash card events.

I am not sure what the exact numbers of next weeks deal are. I think the threshold is $3k and the amount GC amount is $450 but don’t quote me on that.

Wondering if a cash card would apply since Sony (like Apple) controls pricing to within a few dollars between vendors which is why the other stores also have it discounted. Adding a cash card would provide Costco an unfair advantage.

Technically, Costco is a wholesale vendor, so they could get away from some restrictions I believe

I was debating the same thing, spec wise, the TCL is a no brainer with VRR, wider gamut, better local dimming, etc.

If BF will drop these pricings further, will def go with TCL.

I bought the X90J a few weeks ago, the image quality is stunning but the screen is like a mirror! I can even see my ps4 remote light in the screen when I’m gaming…

Where is the TCL R646 for sale in Canada, I cant seem to find it? It seems to be $900 USD at Best Buy which would land it around the $1200~ Canadian mark or higher (companies seem to be overstating the exchange like Apple recently). Not bad value at all! but I have to say the QC on the TCL alone scared me away with all the past threads of dud panels and I picked up the X900H(X90H) for $1100 from Visions in February so I am happy enough. I am still without the promised VRR still but the PQ is phenomenal. I would definitely recommend the X90J if its anything like the X90H has been for me, I love it.

The TCL really seems like a great TV. Gets brighter, has better contrast, better color gamut, and has a lot more features out of the box. Actual picture quality but not be as good as the Sony, especially without calibration, but you can adjust that. HDR 10+ is not widely distributed but it's nice the TCL supports it. All of the features that Sony has promised WRT to HDMI 2.1 like ALLM and VRR are ready out of the box. The X90J (and X900H) have this weird limitation that only allows it to either do 4K120 or Dolby Vision, and not both, which fine from a practicality POV because you can't use Dolby Vision at 120hz anyway, but it looks like the TCL allows you to have both Dolby Vision and 4K120hz enabled at the same time, meaning you don't have to manually go into the settings to switch the input mode.

One possible concern is that this TV may not fully render 4K120 at full resolution. It's the same issue the X900H and other TVs based on this chip has, the Mediatek SoC just can't do it.

Amazon.ca selling them sporadically. 55" I got for $930, 65" is around $1200 I think. I am also worried about reliability but from what I read TCL is better than Hisense and Vizio.

As far as I know, the TCL does have this limitation. Does the X90J also have this limitation? Isn't it the same SoC as X900H.

Woah... If Amazon were selling the new R646 for $31 CDN more than the USD$ price that would be a blazing hot deal!!

I'd recommend those interested in these TV's to go check in-store at Visions Electronics - show them the Costco price, and they'll beat it. Also comes with 2 year warranty.

Sony X90J or Samsung Q80A, if at exact same price?
Bright room, don't want reflections, no gaming.

You may want to think about the smart portion of those TVs, Google TV vs Samsung's

Thanks but I don't really need the smart portion of the TV. I plan to connect it with IPTV/Android streaming box, which has all the apps I need.
Just for curiosity, what's the major difference between them though?

That's exactly the thing, the Google TV in my case, will be replacing my Android streaming box. One less box near the tv.
As I can install android apps on it. So it'll be able to play Disney+ (thanks Saleforce), CloudTV, and put in MX Player and MiXplorer to play videos off my NAS.

That's why to me it is quite a considering point.

I don't know much about the Samsung one, but at least I know I can't install android app on it (sideload apk).
