“For most shoppers looking for the best picture quality attainable under $1,000, the TCL 6-Series is the ticket. For video enthusiasts seeking the best picture quality for the money, we advise being prepared to accept a little vertical banding – only visible at certain times – and perhaps a little vignette effect at the edges, depending on the panel received.”
“You’re unlikely to find a 55-inch TV with better color or HDR performance in this price range, and the Roku OS is top-notch. Noticeable stutter in fast action sequences, on the other hand, moiré in high-detail panning shots, and backlighting issues remind that you’re paying a lot less.”
“The TCL 55R617 is hard to beat for the price. It has very good color accuracy, a game mode that makes input lag all but inconsequential, and its 4K HDR image is astounding. The functionality of Roku and the TV menu system makes using it a breeze. In order to get a TV with a significant increase in performance you’d have to pay two to three times as much.”
“The TCL 6-Series is the best TV under $1,000, period. Packing Wide Color Gamut, Dolby Vision and a full-array panel at just $650 for the 55-inch 55R617, this is the budget-friendly 4K TV that we’ll recommend to friends, family and readers for the rest of the year.”
“Like its 2017 predecessor, our early testing shows that this LCD/LED TV offers great image quality—comparable to that of TVs costing more than $1,000. It comes with an easy-to-use remote, and its built-in Roku OS supports every major streaming service with a user-friendly interface.”
