For those contemplating 2018 vs 2019 I have both. Just bought the QLED 2019 and have only watched one Blu-ray but initial impressions is that 2019 is less bright with better/more accurate and deeper color and blacks, also looks more natural. Less bright is better for me anyway because my 2018 is overly bright I feel like, is difficult to find a legit brightness/contrast setting without blowing you away in a dark room. The whites seem just right on 2019, no calibration. Both are great Tvs for the price.
Which one has better local dimming in your opinion? Which has more blooming?

I got in on the $500 deal for the 65R615 last month, and it should be within return policy. But currently the 615 is showing $700 online, is there a way to price match for the 15% off? Or they will only take 15% off current online price which is not as good as my $500 purchase. Any help is greatly appreciated?!!

Thanks for the information! Unfortunately by the time I went to pull the trigger, it showed out of stock. Bummer! Might have to wait or try one of the 65" from Costco. Would it be worth getting the 613 for $499?
Yes if you really need something badly right now and you are upgrading from something very old 5+ year's ago. But on the 2018 tcl, be prepared to adjust color settings a little bit out of the box since it runs the color red a little too saturated . I could never find the very best calibrated color settings since I didn't have a Google pixel phone or iPhone to use the tcl iPQ app. I still liked the image after cnet settings as long as you sit in front and not more than 20 degrees to the side. You could get it and think about returning if something better comes. But repacking tv takes about half hour or more.
---
As we get near Superbowl better tv models might show up but you will have to spend $200 -$400 more. Eg. Hisense h9F, Sony 900f, LG nanocell, etc.

***Bumping my previous comparison post for those on the fence about this tcl 2019 model.

So I bought this based on the deal and decent reviews and of course I had the luck for mine to become bricked out of the box. I got through the initial setup until it did a software update at which point it rebooted and has been stuck on the boot screen ever since. I already called support and they told me there's nothing they can do except send a repair person out. Best Buy is out of stock for 250 miles around me, and they're unable to order me another one since the main warehouse is out of stock. Pretty sh*t experience so far. I guess I'm going with the repair option for the TV that I haven't even taken the plastic off of yet...

You have a link? I'm following the original Amazon link and entering in the code during checkout and it says not valid.

All my bestbuys around me are now out of stock. Slept on this too long waiting to see if my LG could be repaired.

If possible, could someone who has one set up tell me the Roku Model number for this TV. These are the steps:
  1. Press on your remote to go to the Home screen
  2. Scroll up or down and select Settings
  3. Press the right arrow button and select System
  4. Press the right arrow button and select About
  5. This will bring you to the System Info page
I'm looking for what is under "Roku Model Number" which is 4 digits followed by a letter. This is to help troubleshoot my 65R625 that I just installed but I cant get that far.

Thanks!

I was about to post the exact same thing. Been checking stock and now it's back. But code has expired. Interesting timing for sure.

That was definitely the best Bestbuy TCL 6 deal of the year lasting one week (I was surprised it lasted that long) for both 6 series models 2019 ($595) & 2018 ($425). Congrats to anyone who scored a good one. Hopefully they all last a few years (atleast 5 years). Longevity and buggy issues with firmwares etc are the only things that threaten these TCL tvs. (Warranty is needed.)
--------
there will be other sales. maybe another one near Super Bowl and another clear away sale mid year in the Summer months (May thru Aug), when they are trying to make room for the 2020 models.

If you can live with any small blemishes in uniformity, then the tv is worth keeping.

Once on bootup I had a Grey Screen where I could see the uniformity banding that is commonly found on many 65" budget brand tvs (hicense, tcl etc)-it was throughout the middle of the screen.
But then after Roku screen comes up, nearly 100% of the time on all screens & content I never see any banding or spots.
It is interesting since the older TCL r615, I could usually see slight banding dse in bright scenes. So I found this TV hides nearly all of the uniformity issues (even though I know a little is there; --The bootup Grey screen only came once yesterday. But 99.9% times, I never notice any DSE on normal usage; on the hockey dse test, I could barely makeout some slight banding and vignetting on an Aug2019 build, but i did find a small grey dead pixel in the middle of screen
My 2019 model also had some yellowing on the outer edges of the screen only noticeable on bright white test screens, rarely on normal viewing content.

update 1 week later: The other issue I later noticed another week later out of return window, under hard critical viewing, the motion wasn't as good as older better brand TV sets on very fast moving frenetic shakey camera scenes. This could be due to the larger size screen noticing more motion problems, Roku interface, or 60hz panel. The settings I am using to live with any double imaging motion blur, is leave all Motion Settings off, or use Natural cinema setting on, and rarely Action smoothing modes for live events, (and very very rarely LCD smoothening mode may help with movies combined with natural cinema).
The motion is not a deal breaker since nearly 95% of normal viewing content looks fine. And other large 4k TVs might suffer a little bit of motion blur due to size eg. Samsung tvs comes with 10 scale judder reduction etc; maybe if this tv receives a firmware update like this, things will improve more, but its ok for some people.
--------
(My return window runs out today but I didn't feel like going thru the return process and playing the panel lottery so stayed with this.)..This TV is a keeper for me since it is 95% perfect for my needs (mainly movie watching in a average to dark lit room from 4k sources, night time tv shows & some sports, and netflix,disney+,amazon,& youtube 4k viewing apps & in the future after the firmware update in a few months, gaming consoles and maybe PC that will be able to take more advantage of VRR.).
