Cheap UHD, HDR Android TV
You're not going to enter 4k gaming with HDR much cheaper than this tv. The HDR takes fidling to get right, the Android works well. It has a bit of frame stutter and image tearing in 4k games, but it's budget enough to overlook. The tv is extremely light, very good for wall mounting. I'd strongly recommend this over a cheap Aldi Bauhn tv.
Update: I'm willing to bet a LOT of these TV's are available second hand now.
The HDR is atrocious, about 6 months into owning this and gaming on an Xbox Series X.. I upgraded to an OLED TV.
The HDR will "Bloom" and never turn off, remaining too bright and colour definition with be destroyed.
Terrible Black to black transition. Terrible frame response.
I have been trying to connect tcl for 12 months for a 6 month old tv with a black dot in the centre of the screen. They will not return my emails or phone calls.
Chinese band, Chinese quality
After 1 year and 2 months it died. And now I have to deal with TCL customer support, not that their seems to be any. Even when it worked it was the slowest booting tv I've ever seen. My pc boots faster!
Picture is decent but not amazing
No qualms as yet!
Fantastic quality picture. Very easy to setup and use. Not the worst volume but would probably recommend attaching to speakers for that crystal clear sound every tv buff desires. All in all a very good TV for its price.
Purchased in March 2019.
Great Smart FULLHD TV and value for money
Initially, I was bit reluctant to buy a TCL brand TV over a Samsung or a Sony. However, I think I have made a good decision by buying a TCL and saving approx. 300 dollars. I have been using it from past 1.5 years and could jot down the following pros n cons -
Value for money for the features you get
Looks great not cheap for the amount you pay for it
It's a 4K ultra HD smart TV with chrome cast and and gives the option to add Bluetooth devices as well.
Great picture quality though not the best like Samsung on the HDR experience.

2 & half stars. A nice TV spoiled by slow boot issue
This is a 2017 version TV but even 2018 models seem plagued with this 'bug' that causes TV to take 40-50 secs to boot through Android start up routine.
There is a setting to 'fast boot' so TV comes on in 2-3 secs which works for some and not for others. A very bloody annoying issue that TCL still haven't resolved after a year.
For me, the TV also failed to notify of new firmware updates which I had to ring TCL to get and manually install. Sadly the last update has created new issue of random turn ons. Hopefully a full rest will fix that?
Apart from that, TV is okay but not a brand I'd be praising for others to buy until they get 'bugs' sorted out.

Horrible service, will never buy any TCL product
I brought the TV 6 months back and its started lagging a lot and I reported on 16th September and today is 26 October still not resolved. they email me the details about the service provider and the phone number is not even valid. They don't even bother updating it.
don't even bother buying any TCL products. its not worth it.
Great TV for the price.
Easy setup and looks great. The only issue I have, is that it doesn't have all catch up TV Channels, only one they have is 7Plus. If you're not into catch up TV, not an issue but for me would be better to have them all, phoned TCL and they advised they are working on it.
Very Good Product ,second TCL TV since 2013 first unit L55V7300F3DE reason for change better inter
Purchased this TV on 2018.04.06 together with voice remote. Picture perfect,HDMI connections good.
Smart Functions very good however browser installing say GOOGLE .com does not allow you to add to apps Can use Voice Remote i believe),should be rectified and allow to update to models less than year old..(
Keyboard on back of remote would also work. Speaker quality not good, but it is a TV so space would be a problem. Sound bar the way to go.
Had to contact TCL for advise and spoke with MARIMAR CLEMENTE great service very helpfull and sorte...

A nice TV and performs well takes a while to start up but it's a Real Android Smart TV so a little patience helps. Picture is great sounds OK too. Plenty of apps and plenty of storage for the apps and for downloading videos, games etc I would recommend this and it's great value for money.
Great size tv
Great picture quality, especially when watch Netflix/Stan ect. Tv setup is great, easy to navigate through and select whatever feature you want. Perfect size for our lounge room not to big and not to small.
Only down side I have found to the tv is it takes a long time for it to turn on.... goes through the loading screen for close to a minute.
Lovely Picture Average Sound
Really amazed by the beautiful picture this produces. We get THE most alive colours and decent blacks. It is a huge improvement on the old Panasonic it replaces. I haven't figured out all the functions yet, the remote has a lot of options but watching movies is a beautiful experience. One this - the speakers are not that great so we have a sound bar set up. I think you really need this to get the most from it. Great TV.
Do NOT buy this!
We got this TV just before Christmas of last year. We were so excited as it looked absolutely amazing in store. The very first day we got it we had issues with it turning off by itself and not going onto Netflix. We have called TCL over 6 times since December and now have our 3RD TV FROM THEM! They replaced the tv twice with a new one and new 3 year warranty which we were happy with. But every single tv has had issues. The first one they told us the software was out of date. The second one they gave us had green marks all throughout the screen....This third one keeps updating itself and after it does the tv doesn’t work, it either doesn’t turn on or it keeps muting or turning off for no reason! The software is way out of date and this tv is not worth the $1600 we got it for!.. never going with this brand again, we have a samsung smart tv that we have had for over 2 years now and have had NO issues with it whatsoever.
Good Picture Bad Software
We were so excited getting this but that soon turned to confusion and I spent a lot of the first afternoon trying to sort out the menus and set up. Its not the best but we have a workable situation now. The picture however is great! I have been wanting a 4K TV for ages and it is so vibrant to watch movies on - I love that. The audio - I knew this would be average so we run it through a soundbar. The TV looks excellent in the lounge too. I hope there are updates at some point because the software needs work.
Bad tv nothing but trouble a mind of its own turns on and off by its self netflix comes on by itself. already had to replace remote and second one now not working properly doesn't update freezers all the time watching tv its has a very bad sound delay sleep timer activities by its self .contacted tcl and they do all they can not to help excuse after excuse .no after sales customer service at all rang atleast fifteen times without a solution .three months later still no solutions went back to goodguys and manager booked it in my local tv tec...hnician for the next day .i have had nothing but trouble with this tv and its only six months old .buyer beware stay away from this brand .can't get it fixed tcl wont give permission to go ahead wanting refund from seller .finally goodguys are giving me a replacement tv of my choice as tcl will not honour there warranty 12.6.2018.
Pc 4k gaming is brilliant on this screen
I bought this solely for pc gaming, specifically for my star citizen cockpit. This screen is magic. No noticeable input lag, great colour, and chroma 4:4:2 (according to support). Text is perfectly crisp and readable in windows 10, and 4k content and gaming just looks incredible. You won't be disappointed considering how cheap these are now!
Buggy mess, software updates lacking
Overall good value just don’t expect tcl’s android to be futureproof like it is on your smartphone, e.g don’t expect a single major update to android O, contact support for an update before you even hang it on your wall as the stock build is a buggy mess and the software update feature isn’t supported and never will be you have to load updates via USB
Picture quality good except whites are uneven due to the backlighting.
Speakers are average
Would prefer ports to be on the side on such a large tv,
Android tv with chromecast built in, do...

Good value for money with very minor flaws
With minor adjustments, picture quality can be as good as if not better than a Sony or Samsung.
Had to do away with external speakers since the internal ones are pretty good. DTS sound.
4 HDMI, 1 USB 2.0, 1 USB 3.0 ports along with the usual video ports; good enough to cover all your accessories.
Built-in chromecast is a boon.
Android 6.0.1 with Netflix, YouTube...
Very satisfied with the deal it offers at roughly 30% less price compared to the big names.
3 yrs warranty is a plus!
It's the first time I use this Poured out of TCL I did the expected able to know a performance really well but actually when I get home and turn on the TV is see the screen for four as I think I was really good I guess it's more than I expected
