The 65-inch TCL 4 Series Roku TV drops to $448


Sarah Tew/The Techy Trends

TCL pretty much owns the value-TV market right now, and with good reason: The company’s 4-Series and 6-Series models offer incredible bang for the buck. (That’s according to The Techy Trends’s resident TV expert David Katzmaier, though he’d be the first to say you should spend extra on the 6 Series.)

So if you’re in the market for a big, big TV with an affordable price, look no further: Walmart has the 65-inch TCL 65S421 4 Series Roku TV for $448. That’s the lowest I’ve seen it; it normally runs at least $150 higher, and the last time I shared this deal, it was $498.

If you’re into model numbers, you’ll note that this is an S421, not the more commonly seen S425. (The latter is also what The Techy Trends reviewed.) What’s the difference between them?

I haven’t had much luck tracking down an answer. It might be a slight difference in the remote (no voice controls here, alas, unless you use the Roku app) or just a model number that’s exclusive to Walmart (where it has a 4.4-star review average, FYI).

Whatever the case, if you’re thinking you’d prefer the S425, that model is available from Best Buy for $500. (Review average there: 4.7 stars.) The bottom line is that the 65-inch TCL 4 Series frequently goes on sale these days, so don’t pay more than $500 for it.
