I think what the guy was asking is if Costco's 4-year warranty deal, or whatever it is, covers burn-in. If it does not then Costco is not obligated and your quoted sentence does not apply.

What I've seen is that you're playing the panel lottery a bit with it. And having to return a huge TV sounds like an enormous pain in the ass.

Check out the amazon reviews: LINK

The first one with that text bleed and bright corners would be a deal breaker for me.

That doesn't make any sense. It has HDMI 2.0 full bandwidth and eARC.

You sound like you know what you are talking about. If you do will you please go comment on my "another tv thread?" I don't know jack shite about TVs other than the higher the refresh rate the better.

Just saw on YouTube it doesn’t have 4K hdmi input. It tops out at 1420. Deal breaker unfortunately.



Wait, are you saying that a 4k TV doesn't have the appropriate input to receive 4k content?

re: TCL announces mini-LED 6 series
I have the 55" from Amazon with no issues whatsoever. None of that bleeding.

I also ordered the 65" from BestBuy and read that the September releases should have even better panel lottery.

IDK, but I got geek squad protection, so if I have an issue perhaps they can just replace it.

re: TCL announces mini-LED 6 series
Is the TCL 6 series in the 65" pretty much the best I'm going to get in a ~$800 budget?

I've been meaning to get a new TV in that size for a while and I might jump on this model.

That's the sense I've been getting from my recent research.

You really only have 2 options for that, 60 and 120hz native refresh rate. There are plenty other important aspects to today’s TVs

re: TCL announces mini-LED 6 series
My mistake, only one of the hdmi inputs is 4K. According to a YouTube video I watched. Which I think is incorrect. But it is a roku tv, so it’s possible. I’ll look into it more

Rewatched the video 5 times and can’t find that scene. I think my statement may have been candidate for dumbest post of the year.

no he was implying costco farmed out their concierge service to squaretrade and so there's a bunch of caveats because squaretrade is in the business to make money from denying warranties. i know from firsthand experience costco does not do this and will bend over backwards to keep a customer happy so yes, burn-in would qualify.

re: TCL announces mini-LED 6 series
What about the 240 refresh rate I see on a couple of tv’s?

That's crafty marketing, and bull shite. They all have their trademarked catch terms for that kind of stuff, but you just want to know if they have 60hz or 120hz native refresh rate. Most of the review websites should note it clearly.

ETA: Here's an article on it, which helps support why my next TV will absolutely be 120 hz...for my sports watching LINK

quote:

Refresh rate is a number that specifies how many times per second the image on your TV changes. With most TVs it's 60, though it's rare you'll ever see a TV with that number listed. Instead, manufacturers use different technologies, such as the soap opera effect and black frame insertion, to claim a higher number. Sometimes those claims are justified, sometimes they aren't.

Higher refresh rate claims with numbers like 120, 240, and higher are common, but not always accurate. In fact, no matter what number you see listed with a 4K TV, no 4K TV has a native panel refresh rate higher than 120Hz. As we'll explain, though, a number higher than 120Hz doesn't necessarily mean the claim is false.

Here's the basics:

Refresh rate is the number time times per second (written in hertz, or Hz) a TV refreshes its image.
Movies are almost always filmed 24 frames per second, or 24Hz. Live TV shows at 30 or 60.
Most TVs refresh at 60, some higher-end models at 120. Some older 1080p LCD TVs refreshed at 240Hz.
The point of a higher refresh rate is to reduce the motion blur inherent in all current TV technologies.
Motion blur is the softening of the image when an object, or the entire screen, is in motion.
TV manufacturers use multiple technologies in addition to refresh rate to come up with an "effective refresh rate."
Effective refresh rate means the TV refreshes its image at a lower rate, but might appear to have similar motion resolution as a TV with an actual higher refresh rate.


quote:

For the most effective increase in motion resolution, you need a native 120Hz refresh television. That said, it is possible to have some improvement even with a 60Hz TV if it uses some other feature, like backlight scanning or black frame insertion, that improves motion resolution.

re: TCL announces mini-LED 6 series
Finally tracked down an article. None of the hdmi ports on the 6 series are hdmi 2.1. So not much future proofing. But still solid tv.

re: TCL announces mini-LED 6 series
A budget TV isn't going to have hdmi 2.1 just like every other budget TV.

Nor is it needed unless you're a serious gamer.

The refresh rate you see on the box or in marketing aspects is usually bs. Look for the native refresh rate. Anything called "Trumotion" "auto motion plus" etc is all a marketing ploy thats referring to the soap opera effect, not the actual refresh rate

ETA: the post right below yours explains it pretty well

I’m new to the TV game. I’m slowly piecing together a home theater and I have an old Samsung for now and 100% of my research has been going into audio. I didn’t even know what hdmi 2.1 was

Anybody picked up the new TCL mini-LED yet? I'd like to hear some reviews.

Mine is being delivered later this week.

re: TCL announces mini-LED 6 series
I got one last Friday from Amazon and I noticed 3 greyish pixels in a horizontal line about 20% of the way up from the bottom. Contacted Amazon and they shipped me a new one Monday. The new one is spectacular with the exception of EARC, which wasn't working with the new TCL 7 soundbar. We figured out a workaround, so all good.

Amazon didn't take the first one when they delivered the second. I called them to schedule a pickup and they said just keep it. So, I ended up getting a buy one get one free. Giving the other to my daughter and her fiance.

This new panel does actual black...my old Samsung LED couldn't.
