I’m waiting for my third 75-inch P Series. So my interest in the 75-inch 6 Series is increasing if I keep having to exchange the VIZIO.
That's an impossible standard. But I can give you my opinion based on having the TV for 3 days...
I am upgrading from my trusty old Panasonic P55ST50 plasma, which I loved. (from the last year they made plasmas) I never considered buying a 4k TV before because whenever I would go over to friend's houses and see their LCD TVs, I was totally turned off...mostly due to the black levels, soap opera effect and ****ty motion. I eventually realized that my TV was way too small, and OLED prices started dropping, so I decided to take the plunge. After some back-and-forth I decided, that with my room size, a 75" was necessary and wrote off OLED. (No way I was gonna spend $4K+ on a TV
So I went to Best Buy and saw the 6 series in person. Their demo setup for it was piss poor. But even based on the Samsung and higher-end demos, which looked very good, I wasn't expecting a HUGE step-up...and honestly, I was prepared for some trade-offs compared to my trusty old plasma. Well, once I got the TV home and started up The Umbrella Academy on Netflix in Dolby Vision, I was completely blown away!
I'm not an expert and I don't have tons to compare to, but the picture quality is excellent. Watching dark scenes is almost a completely different experience with HDR! And the experience of being in a dark room with a "fade-to-black" that actually plunges you into complete darkness...awesome!
So, first impressions are very good! I'm not a huge TV nerd, so haven't run a bunch of tests or done the whole OCD-thing that a lot of people here do with their new sets. But I am pretty sensitive to motion problems and various types of IQ issues. So far, there hasn't been anything that made me second guess my purchase. To be honest, the picture looks just as good as the OLEDs that I was previously shopping for. Perhaps you'd be able to tell in a side by side test...but it's definitely not enough to warrant an extra $2K+!
I know the smaller 6-Series are notorious for the "panel lottery". So one would hope that TCL has upped their QC game in the past year. And this thing is so ****ing huge and unwieldy that I dread having to waste a day of my life taking it down and exchanging it. So I'm avoiding digging too hard to see something I "can't unsee" and just enjoy my TV. I'll post an update if I do run across anything and will be curious to hear what other peoples experiences with this new model are.
