Terrible. Software bugs, outdated hardware, poor sound quality.....
Bought two weeks ago, huge mistake, had constant issues since plugged in, mostly due to what seems like a very poor android implementation and subpar hardware such as wireless n.......ac is current for three plus years now....guess it’s to keep them cheap, 1 USB port though advertised as having two, poor software prevents you using a USB stick to extend internal 8GB memory which you only get use of 4GB, the other 4 is hidden for TCL software. Picture is washed out, to much contrast even after adjusting and speaker sound is shocking, sounds like...an 80’s tv. TCL has a 14 day faulty return policy, just contact them for approval, luckily mine was in that window so now have known brand that is way better and 4K UHD. My lesson is you get what you pay for, pay the extra for a premium brand instead. FYI FFalcon brand is also TCL.
Purchased in September 2019 for $399.00.
GREAT PRICED TV
We purchased the 2018 model 6500 series in the 40 inch. We have been very happy with the quality. Got it at a great price. Picture is clear. The tuner works well. All stations including radio stations for free to air. Can connect to the internet via WI FI or Ethernet. Has Netflix pre installed and teletext. Am really satisfied with my purchase and the price.
Great Upgrade For My Mum
I bought this for my mum who has been using and ancient LG until now - she absolutely loves it. The screen is spectacular band that's all good but the main thing for her was the remote had to be easy to use and not too complicated. Well its easy to use now - I put little stickers on the buttons for her to use. She doesn't use or understand the apps so I cant comment there but as a traditional TV this is great!
Good value for the price
Purchased this tv 3 weeks ago. Great value for money. Although the apps are really no good. If you want apps don’t buy it. I use Netflix, SBS on Demand and ABC IView and these all work great. So perfect for me. I love that TCL give a standard 3 year warranty which to me means they believe in their product.
Good For The Price
OK is no Sony or Samsung but neither is the price! Its a darn good smart TV for the money and we are happy with it. The panel has lovely colours and contrast with decent black separation. Audio is a bit thin and the remote is OK. Apps seem to work well but I have only had time to have a basic play with them. I watched the footy on it and was completely happy (except for the audio)
Save your money
Purchased this TV 3 months ago. All good for first month or so but now TV won’t switch on unless we cycle the mains power on/off a few times. FreeView stopped working 2 months ago (FreeView works on another device). Dealer (Harvey Norman) says not their problem) TCL Australia won’t answer emails or answer phone. I have also placed a service request on TCL website all ignored. DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY.
i have purchased this tv 3 weeks before. youtube videos and other apps always interrupted. always have to turn off and turn on to work it again but not for long before videos get stuck again. I have another smart tv in my home which doesnt have these issues. remote doesnt work sometimes too. i have returned this product after a few days and seller has refund my money back.
Bought this TV for my loungeroom as my old TV wasn’t working. It’s a good size and the picture is good quality. It’s big enough for the room. Colour is good and speakers have a good sound. It has an easy to use remote, and was very easy to install.
The TV is amazing for the price! At the beginning I thought the quality of this TV may just so so, but when I used it, the quality surprised me, and the audio was amazing! Furthermore, I can connect it with my computer and smartphone, it is very convenient for me!
Questions & Answers
I noticed it was sold as an Android TV, I only saw that when I got the box, the salesman at Harvey Norman didn’t mention that
Does that mean many functions are useless because I only have all Apple devices?
Does anyone else have to turn on the sleep mode everyday?
How to you fix this so it stays on?
