Good deal @ $850
https://www.amazon.com/TCL-65R617-65-Inch-Ultra-Smart/dp/B079NJMFL8TCL’s cult-favorite 4K TV, the 65-inch R617, is on sale for its lowest price ever at both Amazon and Walmart. After a disappointing Black Friday offering — it was only $30 off during the biggest shopping season of the year — the 6-Series got a surprisingly good discount in a Super Bowl sale. This new deal makes it $20 cheaper than it was for the big game. That’s perfect timing for those of us who treat the Oscars like our Super Bowl.
The 65R617 is on sale at Amazon and Walmart for $829.99, or $470 off MSRP. That’s $30 lower than the previous all-time-low price we saw on this display.
Best Buy’s exclusive version of the TCL 6-Series, the R615, is also on sale, though we’ve seen it at this price before. It’s down to $799.99, which matches both Black Friday and Super Bowl pricing. It’s the exact same TV; the R617 just has a snazzier voice control remote, while the R615 comes with a simple IR remote. Voice control comes in handy, especially when searching for movies, and the line of sight required by the IR remote can get annoying, so we’d recommend sticking with the R617.
