TCL 6-Series 65-inch 4K QLED mini TV for $599.99

HDMI 2.1 for 4K at 120Hz

The reason the TCL R646 is considerably cheaper than other similar spec TVs is that it is a 2021 model. There is a 2022 variant (the R655) but it is very hard to find and much more expensive. The TCL R646 has a Mini-LED (QLED) quantum dot panel with full LED backlighting and 240-zone local dimming, as well as a wide color gamut. That makes it a great HDR TV, especially since it supports Dolby Vision, HDR10, HDR10+ and HLG.

What’s good about “Mini LED”, “QLED” and “Local Dimming”?

The QLED panel allows this TV to maintain strong color accuracy and good dynamic range, even at peak brightness levels. The local dimming feature allows different areas to darken or lighten independently of each other, allowing the TV to skillfully handle scenes where the brightest whites and darkest blacks occur simultaneously. Mini LED panels allow even more precise local dimming because the controller zones are smaller and more numerous. While a normal LCD TV with local dimming can have up to 100 dimming zones, the TCL R66 has 240 zones.

Why is this a good gaming TV?

The TCL R646 has gamers covered. It has a native 120Hz panel and two HDMI 2.1 inputs. This means it can pass true 4K at 120Hz on PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles and RTX 30-series equipped gaming PCs. The TCL R646 also supports Variable Refresh Rate (VRR), which is this TV’s version of Adaptive Sync technology, as well as Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM), where the TV automatically switches to lower latency when it detects gameplay.

What smart interface does it use?

The 2021 TCL 6 series is also new enough to adopt Google TV for its smart TV experience. Google TV is a definite upgrade from the aging Android TV interface and works just as well as Fire TV or Apple TV, even more so if you’re using an Android phone or tablet.
