I have the 65" from Costco. Paid 599 which was a great price. Great TV for the price and IMHO nothing comes close to it in value....in that price range.

Mine is the R6107 series, so I can't speak exactly for this model, but I am assuming the panel and backlight is the same. The only negative I have found is that the Full Array LED Backlight shows a 'light border' around perimeter of screen. If you watch white screens (ie hockey) it may bother you, but it never bothers me.

At 499, I think it's a no brainer for that price range.

How are the viewing angles for this? I have an older Hisense that is amazing for viewing angles, it truly has 170 degree horizontal. Bought a Sharp that claimed to have this but nowhere near the quality of the Hisense.

Thanks!

Will the built in Netflix app do 4K? Seriously considering this to replace an old 720p plasma. :)

Dunno when you bought your sharp, but it could have easily been made by Hisense as they have the license for it. Again, my model is slightly different but I would guess it's due to mine being thr Roku version. I am assuming the hardware is the same. Viewing angles on mine are awesome.

See above, that my version is slightly different, but in general Netflix 4k will play on 4k devices. It does on mine no problem as well. It also recognizes HDR and an onscreen display shows up whenever a program has it. This TV recognizes HDR and it might have a slight improvement in quality but it's missing a lot of things like local dimming and wide gamut that make HDR more significant.

For replacing a plasma, I think it's a good choice. The problem with a lot of older LCD and LED tvs was that their blacks were not very, and the colour was washed out, and the screen not too bright and refresh was bad. This TV is bright and I think would be a great replacement for a 720p plasma and you will save some on your electric bill

Anyways, again, my opinion is based on the R6107. I believe it's probably very close, but I will stop commenting on it as it may be different. Hopefully an owner of the H7608 can chime in.

Thanks. I bought the Sharp on Black Friday 2018, so it is pretty recent.

I hope tvs with HDMI 2.1 start to come out around this price around Christmas. Wishful thinking I know but still, would be great.

I was at the "Sufferin" Mall. Saw a couple buy the 65" above. Store rep said it was the last one in the province. He took like hundreds of calls asking for the 65" b/c it was the only store with availability on their website.

FYI... They actually have in store clearance on most of their tvs. Samsung, hisense, etc. Prices online do not reflect actual sale prices in store. (For example, the 55" Hisense is actually $399 in store, but there's still at $549 regular price online)

One difference between the model at the Source and Costco seems to be Roku
