Costco has the TCL 65R613 65-inch 4K Roku TV temporarily available for $499.99. This price matches recent savings we've seen on the R625 series and is one of the best we've ever seen for the 6 Series from TCL. Through Costco you can pick your delivery date, get Threshold Delivery so your TV isn't sitting outside waiting for a thief all day, or even pay a little extra for White Glove Delivery, which means Costco will set up your TV and remove the box and packing materials. The earliest delivery date will depend on your location, but it looked like at least a week for me.

This is the 2018 version of one of TCL's best TVs. Includes 4K resolutions, support for HDR through Dolby Vision and others, full array local dimming, and the full Roku smart platform. Connect more with the three HDMI ports. Remote has voice control.

The R613 is the warehouse version of the TCL 6 series. Other retailers sold the same TV but the model numbers were slightly different and they had a minimal difference in features. For example, Amazon sold the 65R617 (opens in new tab), and Best Buy has the R615. Best Buy has it for $730, and it has never dropped lower than $630 on Amazon.

Each variant is a little bit different just in the features they have available. For example, Best Buy's R615 has a simple infrared remote without voice control. The R617 sold at Amazon has voice control on the remote and private listening. The R613 sold by Costco and on sale today includes the voice remote but no private listening.

This 6 Series lineup is from 2018. The TCL TVs have since been updated with the R625 versions, but the R617 lineup is still great value for the money. Android Central gave it 4.5 stars and a Recommended award. The review said this TV "is one of those products that hits that sweet spot between performance and price." It's not that this is the greatest quality television or has the most advanced features. It's that what this TV says it does - it does very well.

The Roku TV has 4K image quality, Dolby Vision HDR and other HDR support, LED backlighting with contrast control, and more. The smart functionality includes built-in Wi-Fi and access to Roku TV's entire content library, which includes 4K and HDR content plus all your favorite streaming apps. The inputs include three HDMI ports, one USB, an audio jack, Ethernet for more stable internet, and more.
