I feel like for the price it's a steal. I'm waiting for 120ha 4K TVs to become more wide spread and affordable for my next upgrade but I think thats still about two years away so I think now is a great time to get a quality HDR 4K TV for the price.
Careful with a cheap 4K tv. The motion handling could be worse. At least get to maybe $ 500 since that's the base line "common sales/deals" price for the TCL 6 series that gets you much better HDR and DV support or a better SDR TV.
55 inch tcl 6 has that weird cross-hatch pixels that looks a bit worse specially as a monitor. Vizio also has them. Get a 65 inch from both companies to get proper pixels.
Got cheap TCL 4 and there's an inherent low level of soap opera effect or quite some motion smearing that can't be turned off. Gamma shift and viewing angles quite took a hit. Our 8 year old IPS 1080p tv was superior other than size and deeper blacks.
Lower end Samsungs also have judder problems from 60hz if you're sensitive to that though I'm guessing you can force a PC to output 24p if needed.
That being said, check for deals now until new sets come in anywhere from march to july to possibly see clearance prices of 2018 tvs.
Be careful with Samsungs and check first if you can completely disable GLOBAL DIMMING. There's no consensus if fluctuating brightness depending on scene can truly be rid-off unless you start digging into service menus.
Google nu8000 and q6fn subtitle problems, see if that'll be an issue as well.
If one is anal retentive, maybe get a set with no local dimming or at least not a Samsung that can give you a hard time of completely turning of local and global dimming (2 different can of worms). Sony, Vizio, allows you to completely turn it off and no global dimming problems on their P series and X900F but best ask in av forums or check rtings to be sure.
RTINGS isn't perfect to do cross-references on owner forums and other reviews.
