55R615 / 617 Review
617 from Walmart, Amazon, PCRicardsandSon supposedly have better Remote that doesn’t require line of sight to the TV’s receiver and has mic for voice control.
55 inch model has sub-pixel-dimming / cross-hatching that might bother some for PC usage. Possibly a non-issue for the average joe.
The set gets very, very bright specially for the asking price. Brighter in general than Sony X900F, Samsung NU8000 and Vizio P for SDR and HDR according to RTINGS.
"There are some artifacts visible with 4k content due to the sub-pixel dimming. This performs similarly to the P607 (see here), but shouldn’t be an issue for most people and is mostly noticeable when used as a PC monitor.
This type of dithering is uncommon, and is only seen on some TCL TVs, including the S517 and R617. Most people won’t notice it much, but occasionally it causes artifacts when it interferes with spatial dithering in games such as this green or purple shadow. (Note: the images are from the S517, but we expect them to be the same on the 6 Series.)
Update 29/05/2018: We have received a report that the 49" S515/S517 has similar crosshatching to the S405, as seen here and we expect this to be the same in the R615/R617. This will bother some people especially when used as a PC Monitor."
