first_imgTCL All the best Prime Day deals are at Amazon, right? Nope: For a limited time, Best Buy has the TCL 75S425 75-inch Roku TV for $799.99.

Update: This appears to be out of stock at Amazon, but Walmart still has inventory, at least for the moment. See it at AmazonAlthough the 4 Series has been around awhile, this 75-inch model appears to be an early-2019 addition. That’s why you won’t find it mentioned in David Katzmaier’s review of the TCL S425 series. Katz liked the overall value proposition of the 4 Series, though found the image quality a bit lacking — especially compared with the aforementioned 6 Series. The Amazon user reviews are more encouraging, with an average 4.3-star rating from over 900 buyers. Take note, however, that those apply to all the sizes in the lineup, not just the 75-inch. So it’s hard to say for sure what users thought of the 75S425. My take: If you’ve been thinking about a really big TV, this is one of the best deals I’ve seen. And in case you’re wondering, the 6 Series in this size is currently $1,400. It may be a while before it gets anywhere near this price. Your thoughts?
