Nice price if you can find one. Getting tired of phantom stock with Walmart these days. Waiting for the Android TV OS TCL that are supposed to be out. Thanks...

Is it really phantom stock though? I live in a small town and get a lot of these ymmv walmart deals and it's never phantom stock... It's always the associates too lazy to go check the back or actually look. I've had employees tell me like 10 times stuff was out of stock and when i ask a person who i know will look, every single time they've found it in the back. I think most cases it's just lazy employees. My 350 dollar 75" hisense tvs were all "out of stock" until i made a manager actually go look

This isnt 120hz. Its a 60hz tv.
Price errors are the only real sales :)
I refused to be gouged by canadian retailers when purchases can be made in the U.S for a LOT less..

5 series is 60hz panel. If you prefer 120hz panel you’ll need TCL 6 series

A true 120Hz 4K under $500? ... hahaha, sorry, but never. It's 120hz CMI, or fake (60 Hz plus an inserted black frame).

Probably on the better looking end of 60hz tv's though and may be good value for you, just have to decide, but not true 120Hz.

I got this TV for $499 from Costco and it's picture quality is miles better than my LG TV which costed twice, local dimming zones (blacks are pitch black) and slim bezel sleek design are stand out features.

It isn't a native 120Hz panel but it has that true motion feature which I disable first thing on any TV. Other than watching sports or games, I absolutely hate this. By default it's on and makes everything look weird. I prefer to watch my content at native 24 or 30Hz.

My brothers tcl had handshake issues on xbox sometimes and they just sent him a cheque for the cost of the tv without even asking for proof or returning the tv or anything. Not sure customer service gets much better tbh

That seems pretty anecdotal. Maybe they've gotten better, but they definitely had a reputation of being hard to get in-touch with to deal with issues. I don't think that model of just sending cheques for problems is sustainable. No idea if they have long term plans or are just winging it.

One thing I noticed is that store track's title is for the 50 inch , and it directly leads to the 55 inch on the walmarts website.

I know walmart does not price match anymore. But will walmart accept other walmarts prices on this product ?

Was at my local a few days ago looking for the $49 Google camera. They could only find one that scanned at $129. The one that is supposed to be on clearance they thought might be the demo unit which they would not sell to me. I checked for TVs a couple weeks ago at another store that had them listed. Nope. Nothing on the floor and nothing in the back room. That being said, I had employees look for a monitor that was on sale at Staples a few weeks back without result. Came back the next day and had the manager look. He found it in under 5 minutes. The Sharp 50" $195 TVs we got last year were right on the sales floor, so I grabbed 2 and bought them. It's pretty hit or miss with stuff though and many times things say they are OOS but there is 1 unit still available. Going to go looking again today. Wish me luck...

$3 for a TCL 75" TV.

0.63 units left.

Walmart Supercentre Pluto.

I wish you folks the best, but I bow out of most Need for Speed Walmart race situations unless the stock and proximity are reasonable.

@seafish is still a mensch, but his apostles are sometimes a bit much.

God bless, gents.

Thanks OP, now there is only one left at Southdale for 399, I hit Regent first as Stock track showed they had 11 and Walmart .ca said they had some in stock, Regent had zero in stock. I also extended the warranty for an additional 3 years for $50 as walmart uses the the same warranty provider that Costco uses.
