Anything WRONG with this TV? I don't need the fancy OLED stuff.

I am not a gamer. We watch Treehouse/netflix/amazon prime/youtube.

I watch sports. I don't need to see how many molecules are inside a player's sweat.

Will I be disappointed if I buy this TV? For comparison, I currently have a 46" Sharp Aquos from 2009.

it's just not that bright.

I bought a 58inch insignia for 470 in early 2020 (firetv built in) and it seemed noticeably brighter.

I guess you'd have to compare the lowest price on the TCL 6 series to get an idea of how good this is. Wasn't the 65 inch 6 series like 599 at one point?

i got this TV in december. I am sure in a side by side comparison to other more expensive tv's it wouldn't be as "good", but man, if i compare this to a tv from 7 years ago that cost three times as much, its AMAZING. I'm guessing in 7 years, the 300$ tvs will blow todays' 1500$ tvs out of the water.

I just have to figure out how to price adjust costco.

I got the TCL 65" last year, wasn't very happy with it. Screen is very washed out and very dim even on highest brightness. Returned and got the Hisense, very happy with the Hisense.

I do not think you'll be disappointed at all. 11 years is a long time and some of the content you watch on those platforms will be noticeably better if possible (resolution, HDR, 4K, etc.)

Yeah the $450-$600 55 inch+ TVs aren't going to match up to those 1K devices but for the everyday user on a budget, these things are perfect.

Been using a Hisense 58" since Christmas and can't complain. Yeah Roku isn't everyone's cup of tea but it's working for me. Similar with gaming, it's SO much better than 1080p, I'll take it.

Looked at TLC model tv's in best buy they looked a bit dim

Nothing wrong. I have this and the 6 Series both. The difference is chalk and cheese. If you need a spare, this is perfectly fine.
To be precise, this TV isn't bright with HDR content as it should be. I find, I miss quite a few details in dark scenes.

You should be absolutely fine with Sports/News where there aren't too many dark scenes.

Good to know.

I grabbed the Hisense for $598 I think it was after Christmas after debating the TCL 4 series and 6 series.

It is a great price though to replace an older TV. The difference between my 8 year old lower end Sanyo (which was good enough for me until I bought the Hisense) and the Hisense is incredible, so I'm sure the TCL 4 series would look great compared to an older TV.

I'll wait to replace the Sanyo - time to not spend frivously or waste when the device is working perfectly fine (although I'm tempted to buy a new Chromecast to pair up to the Hisense - Roku just isn't doing it for me - I miss the ability to cast all the things I normally do!)

How well do you think this would perform as a computer monitor? I’m not a computer gamer so it would be used as a music studio monitor.

Semi related question. I have a $50 voucher to use at Costco online from the Gift of Membership but the TV I wanted (x900h) is out of stock and was out of stock at the $1,498 sale price. Code expires tomorrow.

I originally was going to get the 5 series but had concerns on brightness. If I buy the 4 or 5 series TCL and don't like them using my voucher, do I get the $50 back if I return them in the future? Hesitant to buy something I may have issues with and throw away the $50 if I return it.

Outside of doing that I either have to buy some random stuff on Costco totalling $250 to use the voucher or try and sell it on Craigslist and get at least $40 for it.

I bought the TCL 4 series 65 inch last year from Costco and I would not recommend it. Look up the TCL panel lottery. At first it was just a few splotches of faint purple in the corners of the screen when the screen should have been a uniform black. The screen panel has gotten progressively worse and after less than 6 months, a third of the screen has purple banding and backlight bleed around the edges.

This is now showing $499 online for me while it was $509 earlier in the morning when this thread was posted.

Even better now about the $499 online is that it qualifies for the $29.99 price for the extended 3-year warranty (total 5-year Costco warranty) whereas it was previously $59.99 when the price was $509 in the morning.
