Now's a better time than ever to upgrade to the TCL 55-inch 4K Smart Roku TV (65R615). It just dropped to $399.99 at Walmart, saving you $200 off its usual cost. That also marks one of the best prices ever reached on this model.


TCL 55-inch 6 Series 4K HDR Smart Roku TV (55R615)

This 55-inch 4K Smart TV features Dolby Vision, voice control with Alexa and Google Assistant, and the Roku OS smart TV platform that lets you download and use apps like Netflix, Disney+, and more.

The 65R615 is TCL's 2018 Roku TV model, though it has pretty much all you need in a 4K set right now. It features 4K resolution along with upscaling for current HD content. It also supports Dolby Vision HDR content, has precise colors and deep blacks, and has a 178-degree viewing angle so everyone in the room has a great view. There are dual 8W main channel speakers.

It also has Roku's built-in library filled with 4K and HDR content for you to watch. Roku has one of the best smart platform libraries around with access to all your favorite apps, like Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, and so many more. That means you won't need to have a device like the Amazon Fire Stick to stream; this TV can do it all on its own, though there are three HDMI inputs for hookng up any games consoles or set-top boxes you need to and a USB input for devices like camcorders.

We reviewed this TV on release and 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. Besides the size, the only difference between the 55R617 in that review and the 65R615 on sale at Walmart today is the voice-enabled remote. That's no big deal, though, as you can pick one of those up separately for under $20.

The TV works Google Assistant devices for voice control, which is handy considering the bundled Nest Mini utlizies Google's smart assistant. You can use it to turn on or off your TV, search for content, control playback, and more. Plus, it works as a smart home speaker for all of the other stuff you would expect like playing songs from Spotify, finding out about the weather or news, setting timers and alarms, and controlling your other compatible smart home devices.
