TCL R617 75" Is it as good as some say?
I am back in the TV search for the first time since 2012. Things have changed quite a bit and the choices are extremely difficult. I was budgeting for about 2k for a 75" tv. After a bit of research and with help from this forum I landed a little bit higher than I had planned. I recently stumbled across a TCL R617 75" at a local Best Buy and was impressed. The salesperson steered me away and towards the more expensive Sony, LG, Samsung, and even Vizio. Then I did some research on the TCL and was impressed from the reviews that I saw as most were very positive. I even saw a video from Digital Trends where it was compared side by side to a Sony XBR 950g. The Sony naturally won but by only a small margin. The reviewer went on to state that you would be getting 95% of the performance of the Sony at less than half the price which made a lot of sense to me.
I feel that if I go for the TCL it should carry me over until the next generation of TV's. In the meantime it will be a huge improvement in my living room going from a 2012 60" Plasma, that still drives me nuts with all of the daytime reflections.
