After a TV for around 500-600,will be in the bedroom used for gaming and netflix.

Not looking to spend a fortune.

What is the best TV in this price range?

For viewing in front either the Panasonic JX800, Samsung AU series (VA models only, see here: Lost in confusion....) or a TCL.

The problem with cheaper TVs is that they don't represent good value for money. There's an argument just to buy as cheap as you can since what you buy is not going to be fantastic anyway.

Buying last year's Hisense U7Q if you can still find one should be quite a bit better, but still has very basic local dimming.

Is the 65U8GQTUK worth it over the 7q? Is it much better? 550 for the 7q and 750 for the 8q.
Be careful with model numbers.

U8Q is a recommended model from last year. 2020-21 model.
U8G is not the same TV, and generally is unrecommend this year. 2021-22 model.

Same goes for the U7Q (2020-21) and U7G (2021-22).

If you're on a tight budget I suggest looking at last year's U8Q or U7Q (2020-21 models). Not this year's U7G or U8Q (2021-22 models).

Are the later models actually worse than the older models?

Yes, for most people they are. They moved from VA type panels to IPS.
Does the 60hz screen make a huge difference?

65U7QFTUK - 60hz - 600£ - Costco​

65U8GQTUK - 120 hz - £750 - Costco​

65U8QFTUK - 120hz? - £650 - Ebay - 3 month warranty.

60hz usually means you get more motion blur but less stutter. There may be judder with some content. U7Q is probably sitll a better TV than the U8G overall unless you need wide viewing angles.
The IPS panel on the U8G really spoils it in Europe.

Do you think its worth getting a used 65u8qftuk for £600 over a old 7q from costco?
