I just replaced a 32in VIZIO Smart TV that lasted 4.5 years with a 40in VIZIO Smart TV (going to pick it up after work). For all I know the TCL will crap out in 18 months. No, I'm going to let them get more of a track record.

I can live with the shortcomings. I use an external soundbar anyway and I prefer watching TV in the dark anyway.

TCL TVs seem to be a really good deal, I would definitely get one to upgrade to 4K from my cheap-ish Sony 1080p "dumb" set. The only thing I am a bit salty about is that in parts of the world other than the US TLC has been putting Android TV in as their smart TV OS which would make it the complate package for me, but they keep pushing Roku OS on their US and Canada-bound sets and I don't know why :( I'm sure Roku OS is a fine TV OS but I'm specifically accustomed to Android TV and love it's Play Store integration to download apps, sometimes the same ones as my phone where data transfers over, and Google cast, Etc. Long story short if they had Android TV in their set I could eliminate my MI Box and cut down on the complexity of my setup and save an HDMI port for something else. Oh well, maybe someday.

Hmm, he touted that 100% Chinese was a good thing... But the Chinese don't invent anything, they just reproduce (get it >.<) We should be more worried that it's all Chinese made...

I have a 55" in my living room and it's exactly as he says.... its excellent for the price. Screen sucks in bright rooms and speakers suck at high volume..... Also check out the Element 55"... its the same exact TV (I have one of these in my bedroom cus walmart sold out of the TCL's :P)

I bought a 55" TCL 4k TV as an upgrade over my old Sony 1080p. It's fine... I think for the price point I can't complain at all and it will tide me over until newer tech comes cheaper.

Have one of these. The first one had a blue line running down it after 9 months. Emailed support. They asked for a series of pictures. Verified it was bad and sent someone out a few days later with a replacement. Had it died it been the only display in the house, I might have been pissed. It wasn't, and I wasn't. Was a super easy process with little hassle. It just wasn't next day service which they never tell you it is anyway. The technician told me, however, if the TV dies it off warranty, don't bother contacting anyone. Given the price of the TV and lack of available parts, the solution is throw away and but a new TV. At $350 I'm mostly ok with that.

I bought the 32" Roku tv. Most times it's junk. At least twice a day, it restarts while I'm trying to acquire a station on Sling TV. Just shuts down. Granted, I'm a gamer and I have my PS4 set up where when I power up my console, it automatically turns my tv on and goes straight to the HDMI port my game is using.

What do you want for few hundred dollars awesome 65 4 k 599 and 99 dollars for 5 year bumper to bumper

I bought this TV at Walmart and i can say that he's right BUT!!!.... TCL at the time which is this time last year dont have AUTO SOUND MANAGEMENT! so your volume goes up and down when watching tv. The customer service for TCL is also crap! So i returned it after 30 days and ended up spending $200 more and bought a samsung which is amazing.

It’s a great tv. But it doesn’t give you the full requirement for Xbox one x. Since they haven’t updated their Dolby vision. So it’s not enable for Xbox one x.

Ok the upscaling engine is disturbingly bad though, it makes 1080p games look like a mix between 480p and 720p don't get this tv I made a huge mistake and returned that shit
T8PolestarCyan (10 days ago)
If anyone bitches bezels on any TVs should check out the first generation Philips Pixel Plus LCD Full HD TVs. They have one of the largest bezels known in history! To further add insult (to pple who hate bezels) Philips deliberately added those ultra thick black bezel frame to make the TV look larger when it's NOT turned on!

I’m looking into getting a budget 55” 4K tv and it’s now November of 2018, and the price on this tv is higher than another one on amazon that looks the exact same, the only difference being, the last couple numbers, (this one is 55S405, and the lower priced one is 55S425,). Can anyone help?

Xintong Zhou (11 days ago)
Raising my question again, why TV markets are mainly shared by Korean, Chinese and Japanese brands in not Asian regions? (I'm Chinese) I'm surprised by how TCL and especially Skyworth takes up the shares because when I was a teenager, these brands were definitely among the last choices for me.

I've always had good luck with Toshiba. My laptop must be closing in on 10 year old now, has taken some bumps during it's life as well but is still kicking. My current TV is also a 1080p 32" display, it's been great for gaming and the TV has fantastic bright and colorful... um colors. Comparing my Toshiba to a 32" Sony or RCA and the difference is almost night and day. So if I'm gonna look for a TV first and foremost I'm going to see if Toshiba is still around. If not then I'll consider something else. Sound quality don't really matter to me as well as I use headphones most of the time. So TCL sounds like a good fit on my end.

I have 2 of them. I love this tv. I can't see the 4k though.
Louis P. (12 days ago)
The answer is simple. No one IS buying this TV, which is precisely why you are grasping at straws with this fake ass video ad

You get what you pay for, I’ve seen a $500 4K next to $1500 4K it’s a huge difference

Literally watching this on the same fuckin TV xD
Why is everyone buying this? I actually don’t know anyone with TCL. Does it stand for “The Cheap Life”. You can find a nice Samsung 4K for $499. You must be out of your mind to buy this.
