Best Buy just added the Hisense 65U6GR - 65" Class U6G Series Quantum ULED 4K UHD Smart Roku TV to their site for $499.99. You should notice this is the Roku model not the Android one which sales for $649.99

Costco also has this set also @ $500 today only and it is fairly new. I believe BB just started carrying it this week.
I was about to order one from Costco but it is not the same as the 65U6G ($650) that Rtings gives an overall 8.1.
Rtings has received the 65U6GR but has not tested it yet. Browsing some feedback on this set on other forums,etc. It seems to be not the same build as the 65U6G and has fewer custom settings to calibrate the picture. I'm going to wait until it gets some more reviews before buying. But I trust the reviews over how it looks in-store and would have no problem buying with Costco 90 day return policy. Even Walmart and Amazon have fairly good return policies not sure about other stores.


I'm looking at the VIZIO 65" Class - Mq7-Series ($600) at Costco that is rated fairly high for the price.
But when looking at TV sets over the weekend I was not impressed with this set picture compared to 4 or 5 other 65" sets they had on display and some owners complain about software updates. But it gets good reviews at a few sites plus most members on forums/Reddit say it is a good set for price.

I'll mostly buy again from Costco. I like their 90 day return policy + when u use your Costco CC you get an extended warranty plus cash back.
I still own 3 60" plasmas I bought from Costco years ago and they still work and look great.
But want to own a 4k , but doing research is a projected and PIA.

Well that price did not last long at BB. BB said this was just a Cyber Monday price.

Re: 4K TV Recommendations

What would you guys rather have? A 65” Oled or a 85” led. That would be my plan for next year’s BF. (And it would be a Sony).

OLED hands down. Save a bit more for a 77” OLED 🤟

So, it’s probably best to watch 1.78:1-1.85:1 aspect ratio type of movies for the first 100 hours or so with an OLED, right?

Rtings has their review out for insiders on the Hisense 65U6GR and will release it to everyone else next week.

The Costco I went by had the Hisense 65" Class - R7G5 in stock, hopefully they also get this one in store.
7.8 mixed use score vs 8.1 for the u6g.

"The U6G is definitely the better overall TV. Among other things, it has better uniformity, response times, out-of-the-box color accuracy, and can reproduce sound more clearly. Both TVs have similar contrast and SDR brightness though!"

BB dropped the price back down to $499.99 (DOTD). Unfortunately for me not available in my area or delivery from BB.

Re: 4K TV Recommendations

Wanted a TV that was nice but not too nice for an apartment that will likely be moved out of in the near-ish future so got a Samsung 55-Inch Class QLED Q70A Series ($849 AMZN). Looks good so far.
