Easy question for imagic. I assume you've assembled it. Does it appear as though you could reverse the feet to angle in instead of out like on the 900f? I've got a bout 45" to work with and that would likely make difference without buying mount stand or wall mount. Am excited about this review. I'm sure the picture is great. Things like motion for sports, reflections and scaling will be the decision makers for me. Thanks for being a great resource.
Just did it for ya. The "stance" is 36" with the feet reversed.
Looks pretty nice. I'm wondering about the trim/finish. Is it actually metallic, or is it just plastic that is finished to make it look metallic? I guess I'll be fine either way, just wondering. My old Sony had an actual metallic trim and that was one of my favorite things about it (it otherwise died a slow, ignominious death before finally just giving out on me).
Went and updated my Amazon order and paid the extra $30 for Saturday delivery. I wouldn't have been able to sit around all weekend just thinking about it lol. Cant wait to see God of War running on this...

Looks/feels like it's metal, but it doesn't appear to be conductive so maybe it's just a really good imitation finish. It's good enough that I had to bust out the multimeter and check.
I think they called it metal at CES. If it's anodized, the finish may be insulating. By the way, that static image at that angle is rather impressive for a VA. Reflection rejection seems kinda meh.
It is metal, viewing angles are good, but the anti-reflective coating is only modestly effective. On the other hand, my room is basically a torture test for window reflections and such by day, and it's very sunny out today.
So's mine but there's always blackout curtains, LOL. This set really interests me as something I can use until led becomes common. My old plasma's contrast and brightness is shot. Lots of hours per day for 18 years. It's 768p but that was never an issue for me with cable program at 50" and 13' away but it's lost all its pop. Bought it instead of the 1080P available at the time for the nice matte screen and frankly, the 1st 1080 pana looked a little soft to me when it came out.
Sorry that I edited this after your like. Some may find the later portion controversial. I'm a techie by nature but I don't allow it to override my common sense or actual experience.
Anyone who knows some deep specs help me out with finding out If this year's 5 series comparable to last years p6507?
I'm trying to decide between these 3 for a few people. Just not seeing enough info between those 2.
2018 5 series 450
2017 6 series 600
2018 6 series 650.
Can you hook up your Xbox One X and go to that 4k/HDR screen where it goes through all the check marks? I'm curious if it hits everything. If there's anything else you can check with the Xbox One X that would be appreciated as well. I'm curious about whether all of the HDMI ports support HDR or is it only one? Anything weird with the process of activating HDR on the One X?
Again, thanks for the review.
I was just about to order on amazon and the 55" is sold out already
OK - I've sort of been debating between the Vizio P and this - but at 999 - I just don't think I need to wait.
Anyone know anything about the 3 and 4 year policies on Amazon? I normally pass on this stuff, but at 45/66 it seems worth it.
Motion is a consideration here. I believe the P has BFI and we still don't have certainty on whether the TCL is a 60 or 120hz panel. To me, it's more important in how it looks under motion conditions than how they address it but those can affect the overall result. If TCL flash a 120hz backlight every other cycle it would work like BFI at 60hz, even with a 60hz panel but lose brightness. I doubt they will do it like that but they may have something else up their sleeve. Simply flashing at 120hz instead of being continuous, along with the panel characteristics may get it done. Folks are way too spec conscious. It should all be about performance in use.
The TV itself supports Dolby Vision but as far as I am aware Roku does not currently on any models, as such does Dolby Vision content on Netflix only support HDR10 via the built in Roku thus requiring an external source for Dolby Vision? How is the performance of the built in Roku relative to stand alone units such as the Premier + and Ultra? Can the TV be cast to similar to how stand alone Roku units can be cast to?
