The Unique 55 inch TCL 6-Series 4K HDR TV is Going for $220 Off Right Now
Stephan Jukic – March 6, 2019
TCL’S 6-Series 4K HDR TVs were and remain some of the absolute best televisions available until even newer 2019 4K HDR editions start hitting the shelves in mid-Spring.
What exactly is it that makes the 6-Series so awesome? Simply enough, it combines both extremely good premium features with a price that is basically the lowest you can get this kind of quality at for the time being. It’s sort of a hybrid ultra-premium 4K TV with a budget price. Most importantly, the 55 inch model we’re describing here is pretty much the best possible 4K HDR TV it’s possible to buy at the price its selling for right now. This is how we ranked it in our annual ranking of the best 4K HDR TVs for all budgets too.
The 6-Series TV really comes packed with high quality technology. It’s one of the models that we reviewed in 2018 and its performance almost across all specs is excellent. The R617 delivers particularly fantastic performance at deep, rich color rendering for both HDR and SDR content. The 6-Series is also one truly excellent TV for console gaming in 4K, HDR or any other resolution. It’s responsiveness to consoles is among the best we’ve seen in any 2018 4K TVs and low input lag works for content in all formats.
Other remarkably strong, essentially premium features in this model include its full-array LED backlighting and multi-zone local dimming technology. These two ensure both spectacularly high peak brightness of almost 1000 nits and deep, rich black levels for high contrast HDR content, which this TV supports for both HDR10 and Dolby Vision mastering.
We should note that Few other 4K TV makers include Full-array backlighting and local dimming in any of their TVs for prices below $900 or $1000, but the 6-Series has it and at a way cheaper price tag.
That budget price is now around its lowest ever due to a $220 discount through Amazon.com. What you’d pay for the TV at this moment is just $579.99 and this includes free shipping for Prime members, meaning a bit more saving on top.
The TCL 6-Series R617 is an elegantly built and extremely powerful performer that will provide you with years of high-quality display performance for even the latest in 4K ultra HD content from any source. That it can do this while being sold at an extreme budget price is a huge bonus in this model’s favor.
