This 65-inch 4K TV plays nice with next-gen consoles — get it on sale for 27% off

SAVE $351.99: Normally $1,299.99, the 65-inch TCL 6-Series 4K QLED TV is on sale at Walmart for just $948 (plus $49.97 for freight delivery) as of April 2 — that’s a 27% savings.

It’s been almost five months since the release of the Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X, and the TV industry is still trying to play catch-up. Most displays on the market have yet to add support for the newfangled display methods those next-gen consoles brought to the table (see: 8K resolution, 120Hz refresh rates, and HDMI 2.1). And the few that have… well, let’s just say the average consumer will need several more stimmies to feel comfortable buying one.

But let’s say you’re in the market for a new gaming TV right this instant. You don’t feel like waiting around for those new features to go mainstream, no siree. If that’s the case, Mashable tech reporter Alex Perry recommends getting something like the TCL 6-Series, a premium-but-still-affordable 4K QLED display that ticks most of the “next-gen-friendly” boxes (HDR and 120Hz with Variable Refresh Rate, plus a game mode that can reduce controller latency).

Coincidentally, the 65-inch TCL 6-Series just went on sale at Walmart for a mere $948 — that’s just over $350 off its usual retail price of $1,299.99. (You’ll pay an additional $49.97 for freight delivery, but the big box store’s 27% discount makes that super easy to stomach.)

TCL categorizes this TV as a “mini LED” display, which means that its backlight is made up of extra-tiny light-emitting diodes that allow for ultra-specific control over its brightness and contrast. (This is the latest and greatest thing in TV design, according to Tom’s Guide.) Dolby Vision, meanwhile, helps out in the “color accuracy” department. In other words, it’s a real purdy display.

Its only true limitation is that it’s missing the aforementioned HDMI 2.1 port, which means it can’t run games in 4K and at 120FPS simultaneously. Fortunately, that isn’t a total dealbreaker (at least right now). Per Perry: “That might be a problem down the road, but the good news is the few games that support 120FPS right now (like Call of Duty) usually sacrifice resolution to get there. If a game runs at 4K/60FPS, the TCL 6-Series will work just fine with that.”
