I haven't been looking at TVs for a while now but this looks like a pretty good deal to me.

I was in the Grandview Vancouver store and they seemed willing to price match but I opted to order it online instead. Looking at the reviews with all the cracked displays I'm regretting that a bit but oh well.

Who makes RCA these days?

Or do they just outsource their name to whoever now?

Not a smart TV nor hdr (HDR in this price range isn't real HDR, but still). I'll pass. Thanks OP

Curtis international currently own the licence to the RCA brand in North America, and not sure where they exactly OEM them from, but odds are you're going to get the same TV that get pumped out of the factory that make Sylvania and Proscans

I know RCA can be hit or miss, but are usually alright. I just bought this TV a short time ago on sale for $298 (plus taxes, electronic disposal fee, etc.) and after tweaking the settings am very happy with the picture quality. As far as sound goes that was never an issue as i connected a soundbar right away, also didn't want/need a smart TV, i have Shield TV tube. This is my second RCA, my bedroom one is 2 year old "40 that's still rocking (also good pic and sound).

I understand where you're coming from. And exactly what I used to think. Although I don't understand the guilt part. But then I realised how much better the interface was, to be switching from tv to apps, and back, rather than the extra steps turning inputs on and off, and different remotes for a non-smart TV. Along with teaching the family all those procedures. Peace for a few dollars more.

I've never heard such a bad sound on any TV before. Trust me. My cellphone has a better sound quality than that.

In for 2. I managed to get 2 65” RCA from last Walmart clearance, and while I have no issues with the picture, it’s true the sound is awful!

This is the same turd SDM / Frills tries to unload regularly. Review are pretty bad on amazon so I'd stay away.

The TCL at costco for about 450 seems to be the go to on RFD. Get that. Can be delivered with extra warranty too.

You bring up a good point. I want to make the experience easy for the less tech savvy people in the house. Fortunately, we only have media served through an internet connected device (Nvidia Shield) so no need to switch between inputs. So for us, turn on the tv and use the Shield remote the rest of the time. Since I have a Shield, there is no need for a smart TV for us. I keep using my parent's Samsung smart TV as a baseline where the UI of that thing is really bad. I try to use YouTube on it and get frustrated by the speed and bad UI. Its an older TV so hopefully things have gotten better. But for me, I have no need for a smart TV and prefer it that way.
I have a 48" RCA TV from Can Tire that was on clearance (sitting on the top shelf for over a year). I recall checking the service screen for the panel maker and it was a company I had not heard of. Looks fine to me but I'm not picky.

I bought an RCA TV for 50% off (37in 1080p for $100) from walmart and I haven't had any issues with it.

I didn't go Advanced (or not yet anyway), i just went with Picture Mode Vivid, Brightness 50, Contrast 60, Color 60, Tint 0, Sharpness 60, Color Temperature Standard. I may up the Brightness a bit more, but it's not bad now.

If someone wants to go with RCA that will be a better choice.

Thanks for the heads up! I placed an order. Definitely seems like the most affordable 4K QLED, though I guess I'll have to wait and see if the panel quality is any good.
