WOW! I have had my TCL 55P607 for 7 days now & overall this is the best set I have ever owned. I got my first HD television in 2003. It was a Sony 42 inch Direct view LcOS, 3-chip 720p (which Sony marketed as SXRD). I got it at Best Buy on Black Friday for approx 2400 bucks & I was so pleased with myself for haggling such a great bargain. If only I could have seen the future.
As many others have noted, this set at this price point is nothing short of amazing. The only real fault is the grid pattern & the quality control can be a little iffy but as this thread ages, that seems to be getting better. My set was manufactured in Aug of this year. The 4k (especially in the Dolby version of HDR) is quite frankly, astounding. Watching Vudu titles with DV is simply a joy to behold. I have a Toshiba 8500 & a Oppo BDP-203 (although I have not connected the OPPO to this TCL set yet) & even the plain 4k goodies are great. Alas I do not have a 4k gaming device so I have not evaluated gaming in HDR, but I'm slowly talking myself into picking up a XBOX 1 X for some 4k Forza 7 thrills. Right, onto it then.
Below are my settings as calibrated by Calman Enthusiasts 2016 & a x-rite i1 | Display Pro (which has never been profiled so YMMV). Enjoy
This calibration was performed in 1080p using a iPhone 8 casting to a Apple TV 2. These settings, IMHO, produced a very natural picture with little to no black crush & high contrast & good color fidelity. Now again, this calibration was performed entirely in SDR/1080p. Hopefully somebody soon will produce an affordable HDR source.

& just for fun, here are some screenshots from CalMan.
Just could not get that blue push out at 100% Thirty percent is perfect, however.
This set did not achieve the set Gamma of 2.4, but I was able to get CIE almost perfect.
So the real test here was to get overall DeltaE below
3 which I was able to do, that DeltaE @ 90 notwithstanding. Also very good on
the RGB balance. I think I read, earlier, in this thread that there was a issue of blue push. If anybody has come across this I would be interested in what the solution is.
