In this TCL 55R617 Review, we found that the TCL 55R617 is part of the 6-series (new for 2018 the successor to the P-series), represented by a class of affordable, large-screen 4K televisions. It improves upon the aesthetics of last year’s model, resulting in a more attractive TV while maintaining the excellent contrast and brilliant colors of previous iterations.
Even with a few quirks like the lack of an HDMI port and a headphone jack in the remote, it compensates with notable contrasts that justify the HDR label.
In this TCL 55R617 Review, we conclude that the TCL 55R617 specs are primed by the Roku TV platform that offers a wide array of connected apps and services, which is one of my favorite features among high-end Roku media streamers. For a 55-inch HDR screen, there’s a lot going for it, and it’s arguably the best budget TV deal you’ll find on the market this year. For all of these reasons, it earns our Editor’s Choice for a budget TV.
