TCL's 65-inch 6 Series 4K TV drops to $700 at Best Buy

That's a lot of TV for little money, if you're willing to accept quirks.

TV deals are everywhere during the Cyber Monday period, but this is one you might want to consider. Best Buy is selling a 65-inch version of TCL's latest 6 Series TV (the R625) for $700 during the Cyber Monday period, or about $200 less than the usual sticker. That gets you a 4K set with very good picture quality for the money, a Roku smart interface and, of course, a giant screen that should do justice to your high-res content. Just be aware of the quirks -- it might not be suitable for everyone.

Most notably, the TV's built-in audio processing can introduce significant delays if you're passing content through the set to a speaker system. Beta software has improved that somewhat, but you're probably best off connecting game consoles and other lag-sensitive gear directly to those speakers. The TV's legs are placed at the very edges of the set, making this a difficult fit unless you have a truly wide stand. We've also noticed image quality hiccups switching from a Dolby Vision picture to HDR10, although that's not a major problem for most viewers.

At $700, though, you might be willing to forgive these limitations. This is a set that punches above its weight at its regular price, let alone at a $200 discount. The money you save on buying a pricier TV could be rolled into a slew of accessories, whether it's a soundbar or a streaming media player.
