Everyone saying the TCL is a good tv.. but reviews state the 4k is not much better then the standard mode. The features are awesome they say, but the actual picture quality is not that great.

Not sure what to think :/

What Costco did you see this at?

Also anyone know the difference between the S421 (Walmart), S423 (Costco) and S425 (Amazon)?

I know the difference between the 6 series is the remote... S615 (IR) vs S617 (RF)
I saw this tv at the Brampton Costco. There is no difference between the Costco, Walmart and Amazon one. The model numbers are slightly different as each model number is specific to a retailer.

It all depends on what you are planning to use this TV for. If it is being used for a bedroom and you are looking for basic quality, then the value is great, but if you want more out of the TV or planning to use this as your main TV, I would personally suggest something else.

I bought the four series a few months ago from Walmart for $468 and ended up returning the TV to get the Vizio M series from Costco instead which was going for $130 more at the time. The M series offered much better HDR, blacks looked better, offered local dimming, 4 HDMI ports instead of 3 and Dolby vision.

Again, the four series is a great value, but the quality isn't nearly as comparable to other brands.

I would recommend getting the 6 series or another TV instead. But if you are on a tight budget then this one could work for you.

I forgot to mention that the four series TV packaging was simply horrible. For some weird reason, they decided to stick plastic stickers all across the screen, and when you are peeling them off the TV, it literally feels like you are ripping the screen.

Still trying to figure out if I should invest the 130-150$ more to get the TCL series 6. Waiting for the Costco pricing, pretty sure, it'll be around 720-730, since that's the Bestbuy price actually,
Secured a M55 at 599$ yesterday while waiting...


Do you think it's worth the extra money, considering i'll running Netflix and HD and a few UHD movies on a Android box?

Was just @ Thorncliffe Costco and saw that they have the 4 series now from Costco.
Could you please put more information in the title when posting in the future.

Burlington (Brant/QEW) had 50" ($390) and 55" ($460). Might have had others, those were the only two I noticed.

Based off rtings, 6 series scored a rating of 8 overall, 7.8 for the M and 8.3 for the P. The p is the best tv out of the bunch, but the price is also the most expensive.

I don't think it is worth it as both TVs perform similarly.

The thing to consider is that even if TCL series are superior than the M series, the price of the M series are way lower, since they are in clearance.

TCL 6 series TVs still have 60Hz panels, correct?
Is TCL releasing 120Hz TVs this year?
Between the TCL 6 series and Vizio P series (120 Hz), which one would you choose? They are both about the same price.

I wouldn’t put Sony in the same category as Samsung. Sony has AndroidTV which I think is the best SmartTV OS.
Sure, but that's pretty recent and there are plenty of Sony TVs out there with that horrible Sony Internet TV junk, just as there are lots of LG sets with NetCast. Samsung is the worst because all their current TVs utilize Tizen, which is like rolling the dice every day to see which apps are still usable - their support department is manned by crackheads who literally can't afford to buy a clue.

Nice screens and hardware, but I really don't think anyone is even doing Tizen software development anymore - there is probably just a guy continually deleting apps as they become incompatible with the OS.

Thankfully, most of these moron companies (except Samsung and a few others) have moved to a better non-propriety standard, but I still like Roku or Fire TV myself as there are stable and you don't see major apps disappearing overnight.
