The 65 Inch Edition Of TCL’s Excellent 5-Series TV Is On Sale At 44% Off
Stephan Jukic – January 21, 2019
TCL has been refining its 4K UHD TV editions for years until in 2017 and 2018 they came out with a series of new TVs that truly gave even premium ultra HD offerings from rival brands a run for their money in terms of quality and specs. These included the 2018 TCL 5-Series, which was and remains the second-tier model after their flagship TV, the R617 in TCL’s lineup.
The thing about the 5-Series is that it’s one hell of a damn good 4K HDR TV that has always been priced very affordably. In exchange for this affordable pricing, buyers of the 5-Series could look forward to superbly deep black levels, excellent contrast ratio and some remarkably good HDR color performance specs. The 5-Series also delivers full high dynamic range support in multiple formats, including Dolby Vision and HDR10. Its motion handling is robust as well, making the TV perfectly fine for fast-paced 4K UHD movies, sportscasts and everything in between.
The Roku TV platform on all of TCL’s television editions is also second to none. We consider it to be the most user-friendly and content-rich smart media platform in existence right now.
All in all, what the 5-Series offered was an extremely affordable option for what amounts to one remarkably good home theater package for such a price.
Right now on Amazon in a new early-2019 deal, the 5-Series also happens to be on sale at a discount price that’s lower than it’s even before been, making the overall value of this model even more useful for home theater budgets than ever. Instead of spending 1,099 for the giant 65 inch edition of the S517 5-Series HDR 4K TV, you can grab a unit for just $611.40. That’s a huge 44% discount off previous retail price.
We honestly do consider this a worthwhile deal in terms of quality for your money and if we were to rank the best 65 inch 4K HDR TV deals available right now by both price and quality, we’d place this Amazon offer close to top spot.
