I'd bet it'll be under $1,000 next year Black Friday. By the way, I don't think it's native 120Hz refresh rate, but they don't tell you, so who knows. They list it as: "Natural Motion 480", which is usually a sign that it's a electronically processed refresh rate, verses true.

I had considered TCL since it has Roku built in but wasn’t sure if it’s long term reliability since I have never heard of them.

My 55" TCL is 3 years old and having ROKU is like having sliced bread! I have been very happy with picture quality too. I am looking to replace with their 6 series and hope the price comes down lower next month, at BB.

Txl likes playing a price changing game with best buy. Yesterday May 8 best buy had the series 8 tv advertised at 1799.00. I might buy it at that price. Today may 9 I checked best buy web site and they said You can buy it at best buy for $1799.00 and when the redirected me to best buy it is $2999.00 I tryrd to print that so I could show best buy what is advertised on txl website but it doesn,t show the drop down menu that displays 1799.00. Tryed to chat with best buy but no one got back to me. Well all I can say I am not going to buy at the over inflated price.

Isn't it safer to buy a monitor with no internet connectivity, add your own streaming devices.

It was only a 1 day deal. The 65 was the daily deal the day before for 999.

I had problem with audio on my present 67 inch samsung DLP tv and got the fever to buy a new tv. My 12 year old tv still has a very good picture with more imputs than a new tv has. So got one of those Roku soundbars with the built in Roku player. Very satisfied with the roku speakers. So after chating with best buy I decided I do not need a new tv for now but might buy one if the price is right. Silicon dust says that the new atsc 3.0 box will not work with roku. so will hold off for now.
