We’ve been here before.The TCL 6 series Roku TV, our Editors’ Choice as the TV with the best picture quality for the money, period, is back on sale.Best Buy has the lowest prices, charging $550 for the 55-inch model (a savings of $50) and $800 for the 65-inch version (a savings of $170). Affiliate disclosure: CNET may earn commissions from the services featured on this page.See the 55-inch 55R615 at Best BuySee the 65-inch 65R615 at Best BuyAssuming you’re not lucky enough to win one in our contest, that’s as low as we’ve seen for the 65-incher. But we’ve seen it many times, including on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Meanwhile the 55-inch version has gone as low as $500, but $550 is still a great deal. I gave this TV a 10 out of 10 for value, and that was at its original pricing. Note that the new 75-inch size has yet to see any discounts off its original — and still very reasonable — price of $1,800. 61 Photos 9 Now playing: Watch this: Best laptops for college students: We’ve got an affordable laptop for every student.

It lacks the enhanced voice remote found on the R617 versions available at places like Amazon and Walmart. The R617 costs $830 for the 65-inch size and $580 for the 55-inch size. In my book it’s worth the extra $30 for the convenience of the voice remote, which works great for searches in particular. Either way, you can’t go wrong.See the 55-inch 55R617 at AmazonSee the 65-inch 65R617 at Amazon25-tcl-6-series-65r617-roku-tvAn extra $30 gets you a version with this voice remote. Sarah Tew/CNET The 6 series came out in mid-2018, but it’s still a perfectly good TV. Yes, TCL will announce its successor soon, and from what I’m guessing it will have better image quality than the 6 series on sale now. But it will probably be a long time, November 2019 at least, before that successor reaches the same price as today’s model. Here’s my full thoughts on 2019 vs. 2018 TVs.last_img
