2 cheap tv's from Costco Canada, which one?

Looking to move my old 43" plasma to the bedroom and pick up a cheap 55" 4K. Costco Canada has 2 on sale but the model numbers are confusing and panel lottery/reliability could be an issue. Choice is between the TCL 6 55R613CA and the Hisense 55Q8809. I assume the TCL is a made for Costco but is it the 615 or 617 in disguse? Not much info on the hisense, zero reviews but read somewhere it's a budget H9 model.. who knows?

TCL all the way in my opinion. Just better overall in every way.

New owner of a TCL 75R615 here in the States from BestBuy. Great tv for the price so far, love it. From what I gather, 615 is the non-voice remote and 617 is the voice activated remote. Not sure of the 613 thing. Can't comment on the Hisense for never owning one, but the TCL seems to be well worth the price.

Boxing Day she'sa coming, and good things come to those who wait. I'd shoot for the big three, but that's me.

The 613 is the 2019 Costco version of the 615/617.
