It's 10000% worth the upgrade. I have the 6 Series and love it; especially the Dolby Vision. People will complain about the panel lottery, but take that with a grain of salt because it's not as big of an issue as the internet makes it.

Same dilemma, but from what I hear they are very similar in quality. The hisense has one extra HDMI port if that's of interest to you, it also has Android TV which might sway my decision, think I'll wait till mid August when I can renew my membership and get the 60 off 100 coupon for Costco friends and family and buy the tv with that. Maybe we'll see another price drop on the hisense lol

Really a personal decision. It depends on how you plan to use the TV, and your personal standards.
The 6 Series has a lot of premium features that can make a big difference in picture quality. The question is do you need those features and will you see that difference. In the budget TV category, I think the TCL 4 Series and the Hisense R6 are the two best choices, if you decide to go that way. They are both decent TV's and give good performance for the dollar, unlike many other budget choices.
If you are a videophile or are highly critical of PQ then spending the extra $200 might be the prudent choice.

Don't want to start a debate but define what is quality for you.. I have seen so many people buying Samsung that regrets (tv died within less than 3 years)
Each their own experience but so far so good on my side.. I own both type of tv (expensive brand and cheaper brand) but I wouldn't worry for getting this tv as my main unit for the price.

Tv are just getting cheaper and cheaper.

Don't buy one unless you actually need or want one.. This is good price if you need one at this moment in time.

The price was the same last year, great TV for the price...can't be beat.

If you are on the fence, probably a good idea to wait for the newer version coming out but I'm sure it will be over $1000.

I feel like this was even a bit cheaper at some point. Was hoping to see Costco liquidation these off but people keep buying them :):)

I bought this for the same price in March of this year. Absolutely love this TV, no complaints so far!

I'm currently watching this tv and the image quality is great! I paid over 1200$ for it back in August and it was a deal. This tv is such a good deal at that price that I'm almost tempted to get another one for the basement... Hahaha
Can you elaborate on how to connect a bluetooth headphone to this tv? I bought the Bose headphones that are currently on sale, and I haven't decided yet how to connect it to the TV. This might be the best option.

Nothing wrong with LG or Samsung TVs, I have friends who love their LG and I had a Samsung plasma for many years that is still working well for friends, but that being said, buying TV's solely by name recognition, is a dangerous strategy these days. You can often spend hundreds more for a name brand that performs worse than the well rated secondary brand TV and likely won't last longer either. If said name brand is even actually made by that company. There is a lot of rebranding and name licensing these days.

Except when you pay a little more for Samsung you are getting a little less this year. Seems all of their models have downgraded one model level. Meaning this year's 8000 series has the specs of last year's 7000 series. Many of the specs have degraded. LG seems to be doing the same. Check out Rtings reviews and they mention it too.

Probably. Supply and demand and popularity.

Side note, BestBuy Canada sells 65R615-CA whereas BestBuy USA sells 65R625

What are the differences between the 3 if anyone knows?

I would go with the Hisense for Android.

Rtings has an identical mixed usage rating, but this is cheaper.
