I'm sure the bigger reviews for the New TV will include stuff on Movie/TV Watching side.
So once those consoles come out, maybe just maybe, they can't get back to make quality TV's with great picture quality and reliability. The majority of the TV buying public are not teenagers and young adults primarily interested in gaming. They really need to make more dedicated gaming monitors for the kids and more videophile quality to displays for the enthusiasts.

Already I'm seeing mixed reactions on the TV, it's one of those you love it or you hate it type products. Some are very impressed with the TV while others are disappointed with the TV and those who are disappointed often complained about the distracting blooming/clouding, the THX Game Mode being nothing but a useless gimmick almost as poor as Game Mode on Samsung TVs, etc.
I returned it. Super disappointed. I’ll wait for the TCL Vidrian model that comes out end of 2020 (8 series) and hope it’s better.

Black crush was a joke. Even in places you wouldn’t expect it. Somehow I had black crush AND blooming. I don’t play video games so I can’t speak on the THX game mode.

For reference I have currently 2 OLEDs, a Q90R, and a Nanocell 99. All are infinitely better.

Your nanocell 99 is better?

Much, much better. It has amazing colors, and surprisingly deep black levels without any loss of shadow detail. It's in my bar area, which is decently well lit and it handles reflections and viewing angles like a boss.

I don't recommend the TCL 6 series unless budget is your number one concern. Even then, I'd wait til it's on sale. It's all talk (on paper), no walk.

Isn't that what OLED TVs are - Videophile quality displays?

The appeal of TCL is that it's considered the the best TV in it's price range. Even from the limited reviews I've seen thus far, that looks like it will continue to be the case.

They have been pretty awful before this year.

I don't think anyone critiquing the 2020 models has seen them at home though, they might be basing it on past years. Then again, I've only seen the 90 and 99 series in home settings. The rest of the line might be garbage.

Per Rtings, The TCL scored quite a bit better than your LG.

I finally purchased the TCL R635 not too long ago this morning. Once it arrive, I will post my first impressions on the TV as long as of course it doesn't arrive broken.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS: Much earlier today I finally got my hands on the TCL R635, and since playing around with it I'm really enjoying this product so far. Also watched my first movie on this TV The Invisible Man, and it's a pretty neat overall experience. My panel has no DSE at all, and the blooming certainly exists, but it's nowhere near as bad nor distracting as some reviewers like Quantum TV (formerly Quantum Apotheosis) and Value Tech Cents made it out to be.
Looks like I'm good to go for the Xbox Series X. The only thing I'll miss out on is 4K 120fps support, but I don't think that's a big deal right now. I can live with 120fps at around 1440p resolution.


PS, I'm coming from the Vizio V436-G1 from last year.

That's good to hear. I'm considering the 6 series and the 5 series for tv's to watch football on. I have a 65 inch LG OLED in the living room and we are going to add a 55 inch tv to each side of it so that we can watch multiple games at the same time.

You must have a gigantic living room to be able to fit one 65" and two 55" big screen TVs. Some TVs have PiP (picture in picture), so you may not need three TVs after all. My 65" LG OLED, and the plasma that I have in my bedroom have PiP, but I've never used PiP because I don't like it. I watch one program or the other, not trying to watch two at one time! Trying to watch three games at one time is going to be difficult because surely you are going to miss something. Even with three TVs, you're still not going to see everything so you're may be fooling yourself. Nobody can watch three programs at once, it's impossible! It'll be like watching a tennis match in person with your head moving from side to side, and that's going to get extremely tiresome very quickly.

That may be true but I normally have a few friends over to watch also. We all have different teams we go for.

I've had good luck with TCL (we have two), and we're thinking of upgrading our 55" 55P605 from 2017 with the 75" 75R635. CNET gives it high marks. It'll be strictly for watching movies -- mostly 4K via my UHD player or Apple TV 4K. The Hisense H9G gets slightly better reviews, but I'm really wanting a larger TV in our basement family room and the Hisense only goes to 65". I'd love some more thoughts on the 75R635.

Here's my final thoughts on this TV since I've now had it for two weeks. Overall, the TCL R635 is a really good TV and I'm completely satisfied with it. I came from the Vizio V-Series V436-G1 from last year which while not bad, it wasn't anything to write home about neither, so I knew this TCL would blow that Vizio out of the water.
Pros:
-Brilliant picture quality overall
-Vibrant beautiful colors
-Deep rich contrast & black levels
-The Roku OS is executed pretty well
-Very good peak brightness
-HDR10, HLG, and Dolby Vision supported
-eARC, ALLM, and VRR supported
-Native 120hz panel
-Decent motion
-Nice build quality
-Acceptable internal TV speakers

Cons:
-Poor viewing angles
-No HDR10+ support, though it may not be a big deal to some people
-No 4K@120 support (because of the HDMI 2.0 standard)
-Roku doesn't have HBO Max
-Local dimming is fairly hit and miss, the blooming may annoy some people

Yup, for $650-700, it's hard to find anything better than the TCL 6 series. Maybe I suppose the Hisense H9G comes pretty close, but that one lacks any HDMI 2.1 features and I've heard horror stories about Hisense's QC/QA. I give the TCL R635 a solid 8.5/10. If the local dimming is something TCL can improve on via firmware update, I'll bump up the rating to either 9 or 10. But in the end of the day, I'm happy I went with the TCL 6 series over the competing Hisense H9G and Vizio M-Series Quantum. Oh and I haven't tested the THX Game Mode yet because I'm waiting for the Xbox Series X to get released & I get my hands on one, and I haven't tested the eARC neither because my current AVR doesn't have eARC support, only the regular ARC support.
