Adequate Enough but is Severely Lacking
The TV in itself is suitable for everything you would expect. You can watch local television programs, connect multiple devices via HDMI, browse media files on external devices and a fair few other cool things too. However, this TV is missing some extremely necessary features that make it easier for more experienced users to play around with. The TV is built on proprietary firmware running on Linux, containing the bare minimum for anyone wanting to experience owning a "smart" TV. The app store is absolutely substandard. It contains scarcely any...actual useful applications, and it is almost never updated. The user interface is slow, clunky and the design is average. The UI does not compete at all with some of the more genuine TV producers, like LG, Samsung and ect. Being run on a standard build software, the TV cannot install external programs that may enhance or customize the way the TV looks or feels. It is frustrating owning a TV that is extremely lacking in customization and usability. However, ultimately I must say that beggars can't be choosers, and that I will learn to go with the Android TV range in the future for a better experience.

Brought this tv due to my old one being to small for my needs and haven't regretted it. Love the clear picture and sound. Really like the ECO screen feature as it allows for a great pixel without using to much power. Would highly recommend this Tv if your looking for a energy efficient television
Nice little tv
i bought this TV from an online store during 2017 boxing day season, I really liked it. it is sleek, high definition, easy to operate and has lots of apps in built. i have 55 inch LG smart tv that stopped playing Youtube but this TV has no issues so far. it is small so i am using it in my bedroom wall, Putting it on a wall was no problem as the weight is less than 5 kilos. finally another happy customer for this 32 inch TV.

Decent small TV for a bedroom, nothing amazing
Decent TV for the size and price. I wouldn't go for this model in a larger size though. Black levels aren't too great and viewing angle is fairly limited. Sound is as expected, average. I use it with an Apple TV so don't use the smart features. Sometimes I accidentally open YouTube or Netflix and I can never figure out how to exit and return back to the HDMI input without turning it on and off.
Someone else mentioned the light at the bottom. This can be turned off in settings, though it should be default because it's super annoying.
The tv is ok for the price. The picture quality is ok. The audio is quite poor as expected. Not sure if mine is faulty but the headphone jack seems faulty with the sound going soft for no reason. The smart feature are quite good for watching internet content such as youtube, netflix etc.
Thinking of returning. Hardly any features and sometimes will just turn off for no real reason, doesn't always read files from a USB and internet functions are very poor. It's cheap, but still, not happy with it and regret buying it. Picture is fine though, so if you're looking for something for a spare room etc, go for it.
Not suitable for bedroom
Purchased this for our bedroom. It has a large (6cm x 4cm) bright white light on the front at the bottom which also shines up through te back of the TV and projected onto the wall. We didn't see the light in the showroom as the TV was on and the light is only on if it is off. For night 2 we taped over the light (still projected out the back though). But, it needs to be uncovered for the remote to work.Anyway, it is now in the garage.
Really wish someone else mentioned this in their reviews. So, please note, this is not suitable for bedroom!
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.
I have purchased this TV in Nov after I shifted to Melbourne. There was offer in Harvey Norman and I can say it's best choose I made between Heinse and TCL. No issues till now. This is smart TV and also has Netflix support through pre-installed app. Mobile cast also works excellent and is handy.
This TV is prefect. Has many apps installed already. Kids can use Toutube to watch any thing. It also has wifi which can connect internet easily. Big screen is prefect. Volume is good as well. Also we can use it to browse internet. So if you know some website, you can use TV to watch movie at home.
Fab little smart TV
A cheap price for an amazing TV. As good as any on the market. Great sound and picture. This was exactly the TV I was looking for to put in my bedroom. Love that its light weight and easy to move around if needed. Highly recommend. Well worth the price.
TCL Smart TV is the dumbest TV
The so called smart tv doesn't come with a smart remote, so it can't be used to access programs through the Internet like Stan. You can type in the URL and get to the internet page but that's as far as it goes because you can't "point" to what you want once you are on the page you want and the arrow keys are useless because you can't move the cursor to where you need, to be able to make selections. You can't even get catch up TV such as SBS on Demand or ABC Iview a really simple thing on most other Smart TVS (including my old one which is abo...ut 5 year old). The so called preloaded apps are crap and don't work and it is possibly the most complicated TV to operate I have ever had, it is also the most frustrating TV because it does absolutely nothing that is even remotely smart. Unless a smart tv comes with a smart remote it is just an ordinary tv.
Big improvement on TV this is replacing
This replacement TV looks superior to the older model i bought 2 years ago. It not only feels better quality but also has much better colour definition. I found setup to be easy and intuitive. So far I'm much happier with my replacement TV. (I received replacement TV 23/12/17)
The previous TV felt cheaply made and colour definition (especially skin tones) was very average.
Would like to thank the lady operater at TCL. She was very curtious, helpful and i appreciate TCL replacing my older model and inferior quality TV with new model.
Really like replacement new model TV.TYVM :)

TCL The Not So Smart Tv
I purchased a TCL 32S6000S Smart TV and a Concierge Extended Warranty from the Good Guys in Belconnen on 30th November 2017. Unfortunately, the so called “Smart TV” fell well short of the claims made by TCL and the sales assistants at the Good Guys.
Although I thoroughly researched the model prior to purchasing it, including discussing the features with two sales assistants, downloading and reading the “Operation Manual” and reading the published reviews, I ended up very disappointed with my purchase.
I had two main reasons for selecting ...this particular model but unfortunately it did not fulfill either of these. Firstly, according to the two sales assistants I spoke with, and the “Operation Manual”, I should have been able to connect the TV via Wi-Fi to my computer and gain direct access to videos and music stored on my computer. This was not the case. After purchasing the TV and spending four (4) full days trying to access this feature, I was eventually advised by TCL that direct access is only possible if the TV and computer are connected via a HDMI cable. Had I known that I would be required to run a 15 metre cumbersome HDMI cable through my house to perform this function I would not have purchased the TV. Secondly, according to the two sales assistants and the “Operations Manual”, the TV had an additional feature of a USB PVR with Timeshift. Despite four (4) calls to the TCL Electronics Customer Service Hotline and following their advice, which meant resetting once and reinstalling the TV twice, neither the Customer Service Officers nor myself could get this feature to work. Each time I tried to access the feature I was advised “Feature not available”.

Don't bother. Save yourself the time.
I bought this TCL 32S6000S Smart TV to replace a TCL L32D2700 (a non-Smart TV which was still in perfect working and reliable order but I needed the Smart TV connectivity). The price was extremely good from The Good Guys in Melbourne and my great experience with the previous model was so good and fuss-free that I thought I could not go wrong.
I was wrong. While unboxing and initial setup was easy and drama-free, once set up I noticed that the links on the HOME menu page, when clicked, brought up a black screen. I waited. And waited. Nothing.... The only way to fix was to turn the TV off and on. I tried again. Same issue. I called TCL (a total of 7 calls over 2 days). Eventually, they said I needed to upgrade the software to the latest version. OK, no worries I thought but why should a brand-new product out of the box require a software update immediately to work reliably? They emailed me a file to copy to a USB and instructions to install the update and also to do a hard reset. Note: TCL does not currently offer automatic download via wi-fi for software updates – unlike other companies. Unfortunately, the newly installed software would not give me the location option of Australia - and therefore the TV could not search and install Melbourne TV channels. Although the TV would switch on, the TV was unusable for watching regular free-to-air TV.
Questions & Answers
I have a black screen (no picture) with sound and I'm hoping to use the "pinhole" reset button on the back of my TV, but I'm unable to find it.
