[Zehrs] JVC 55"4K Select Series, 60Hz, 3 HDMI, $399, receive 105000 PC pts ($105) = $364 after tax and pts

At Zehrs in Barrie and saw a JVC 55"4K Select Series LT-55EC3512 (60Hz, 3 HDMI, 2 USB) on sale for $399 + $16 ER Fee + tax. Bonus 105,000 PC pts ($105), so factor that in = $364 after tax and pts. Recognizing it has basic specs and never bought a TV from Zehrs before, but seems like a pretty good deal for a 55". 30-day refund with receipt.

Front page of Zehrs flyer at bottom notes the points and there is a sample TV ad on last page.
No weblink to Zehrs but here is a similar unit at Visions

Any thoughts or suggestions of other better choices for the same size and price range?

How does 105000 PC points equal $140? I thought it would be $105?

Yes, it's $105, no idea how OP came up with $140. (399+16) plus tax is $468.95 -$105 = $363.95 not $328.

TVs and most other electronic items are not specifically listed in their return policy but there is an electronics section. The way I interpret the return policy is you have 30 days for a refund on unopened electronic items and 30 days to do an exchange if the item is defective. After 30 days it's final sale, no returns or exchanges.

Electronics:

Software, CD’s, DVD’s and video games are only refunded or exchanged when in its original sealed package. Exchange for same item is offered if product is opened and defective. All electronic sales final after 30 days.

If you are buying this for Garage or your basement rec room then its fine, otherwise please don't get this TV. Its horrible in terms of color & picture. I couldn't get it to pair with Firestick remote either. But if you only want to spend $300 like I did, then sure it fits the bill.

If you only use your points during bonus redemption events, they typically will give "redeem $140 for 100,000 points" at shoppers. This typically happens at least a couple times per year, and a lot of people will only use their points during these offers because it's basically an additional $40 in points you can use for free.

my bad, you guys are right. corrected the 105000 pts value and final pricing to $364... was never that good at math!
Thinking there are better choices out there, like maybe this Costco 55 Hisense with 120hz motion rate far a few more bucks plus 2yr warranty.

I would think you're better off with the Hisense at Costco compared to JVC tv. Yes you're paying more but you have a 2 year warranty and a 90 day return policy. I have a Hisense 43 inch tv with Roku and have zero complaints.

I bought one of these JVC a couple years back.
It was truly a horrible experience. You may get problems to return .

Happy hunting nonetheless.

I was thinking of getting the Hisense 43" from Costco to be used as a monitor / tv, the reviews are so so for a $367 tv.

I've had the 43 inch Hisense since the middle of last year. I use it as a bedroom TV and have been pleasantly surprised by it. The sound from the speaker is surprisingly decent and the picture suits me very well. My standards aren't that high and I'm just watching regular tv. I'd say try it out. You have 90 days to return it.

JVC licences its name to Shenzhen MTC. I would have no issue with that, but I know that this kind of thing may change one's buying decisions.

None of those brands actually make their own stuff anymore. Even sharp(a company you'd EXPECT to made their own panels) sold out its brand, at least in the western market.
Samsung, LG, and Sony are pretty much the only recognizable good brands now(which is funny cause LG was considered absolute trash in the 90's, when JVC or Hitachi had some brand value). Otherwise your best bet is the openly chinese brands like Hisense or TCL or Vizio, compared to the ones that hide their brand by buying the rights to recognizable brands from the last decade(Toshiba, JVC, RCA, Sharp).
Its such a weird waste of money to me, since all its done is made me even more suspicious of those brands now. But i guess most consumers dont pay as much attention to that stuff as the kind of person who would keep an eye on a RFD-type website.

That doesn't have 120Hz refresh rate, MR (motion rate) and refresh rate are different. That's a 60hz panel, 120Hz panels are significantly more expensive.

Well at least Sharp is made by Hisense, which is anywhere from decent to great...nowadays. However the problem is Hisense relegates the TVs it brands/sells as Sharp units to the lower-end TVs, so they are nothing special. Sharp tried to sue Hisense to get the name back (because earlier Hisense TVs were indeed crap and again they were using bottom of the barrel for Sharp), but I don't think that lawsuit went anywhere.

This JVC is clearly bottom rung, disposable stuff, but that should be clear with a 55" set both at this price and sold at a grocery store. As someone else said if this is for a garage or something...okay; otherwise stay away. Even then it may not get bright enough for even good garage use :lol:
