Glitchy, Glitchy, Glitchy
I bought a TCL 43P715 TV from JB Hi Fi in Brisbane in May 2021.
Likes: The picture, the features, the price and the sound. All are great.
Dislikes: The TV was glitchy from day one, time shift was something I needed, the shortcut never worked, it was a three or four press operation to get to it which wasn't great.
The TV tried to launch Chromecast twice by it's self, putting a blank screen on and taking us a while to get back to live TV.
Google assistant wasn't working most of the time so we turned it off, however it kept asking us to...

Good picture quality and apps but slooooow!
I purchased this TV from the Good Guys ebay store and picked up from my local store. That process was simple.
When I got the TV home it was easy to unbox and set up with 4 screws to get the footing mounts on.
Set up took a relatively short amount of time although I believe there was the option to speed things up by connecting your Google account which I didn't opt for at the time. Super light so easy to carry and move if necessary (10kg including stand).
I mainly chose this TV because it was an Android TV and had access to in particular to the ...

Overall good & ultimate user friendly
Light weight (only 10 kilograms unit and feet) yet sturdy. Nice design. There are two nice and slim remote control units. One of them is much longer with full controls while the other has partial controls. It is hassle free to set up even to a person with limited android system knowledge like me. Built-in TV tuner is something one can't find from almost all other brands (and series). Voice control is one of the major point I'm interest in. It is much more convenient than button clicks. It can also fix a lot of issues which can't be done by remo...te control buttons. Price is about 1/3 to 1/2 of a good brand like Sony or Samsung yet picture and sound are just a little shy of. It is the most comprehensive TV, in term of both hardware and software, I could find in the market regardless brands or price range. 3 Year warranty. Highly recommend to "perfect TV" hunters.

Terrible product. Terrible brand.
Bought a 75 inch tcl led TV in the black Friday sales.
Immediately after getting it home had major issues. Freezes constantly. TV interface lags badly. Slow to boot up. Apps crash. Audio sync is terrible and is different for each app, some apps cannot be watched at all due to the bad lag and mismatched audio and visual.
The panel itself has atrocious black bleeding around the edges.
I contacted JB hi Fi where I bought the TV and they told me to contact TVL customer support directly for trouble shooting. Rang them and they guided my through a...factory reset and made sure my software was up to date which it was. They told me to send evidence of my issues through to them and they would contact me WITHIN 2 BUSINESS DAYS to arrange a technician to come and see me. It has now been well over 2 months and no one has contacted me. The TV is still as terrible as ever. Apps freeze constantly. Audio not matching visuals. Black bleeding terrible.

Awesome 100 inch TV at a good price
I bought this two weeks ago at Harvey Norman on Black Friday to replace a 100 inch screen/projector in a dedicated home theatre. Saved $3,000 on RRP. Very happy with the brightness, sharpness and features. Picture quality comparable with a 65 inch Sony in an adjacent lounge room but soooo much bigger! The newer version Android TV operating system is also now much better to use, and has apps for all streaming services, not limited by proprietary restrictions found on some brands. The system is regularly updated by Google.
I used optical ca...ble to connect to an existing 6.1 surround sound system and it works faultlessly but multiple HDMI ports are available including ARC. The TV internal speakers reflect off the back wall and are quite loud and clear. Sounded adequate at installation, but I have them turned down and use a home theatre 6.1 audio system. One minor annoyance if you mute, then a small icon remains on screen, so just turn down to a setting of 1 and the indication disappears. I was able to connect Sony WX-1000 bluetooth headphones directly to using the menu bluetooth settings. (Have not been able to do so with a Sony using Android TV). Speakers mute when connected. The volume can be controlled from either the headset, or the remote control. What is nice is that when you turn off the headphones, the volume setting returns to that using the speakers/audio out. That is, you don't end up blasting at headphone volume from the speakers. Nice touch. That said, even Sony headphones are no comparison in sound quality and experience to full surround sound and sub-woofer in a theatre setting. But maybe handy if have to be quiet at night and want the great visual experience. I installed a USB extension cable and when plugging in a 128GB thumb drive there are no problems reading the directory and playing movies in .mkv or .mp4 format using the intrinsic media player. Also reads directories and plays files on a home network. I used ethernet connection but the WiFi is also easy to setup and fine. The processor on this TCL is much faster than our Sony in connecting to USBs and reading directories and movies of a couple of GB without any buffering. I haven't determined yet whether it will easily address a 500GB or 1TB SSD yet. The menu settings provide a variety of combinations of dynamic picture suitable for movies, games, sports or general viewing. I have turned down the brightness as it is so sharp and bright in a dim theatre. I find the 4K picture quality very good, especially panoramic views in movies like deserts, forests and snow are crisp and clear but realistic in tones.

Don’t even bother
I bought this TV 6 weeks ago from appliances online. Noticed really bad clouding and it gets so bad at night and can see it during movies. The streaming apps are really up and down and don’t even bother with the built in chromecast. I had to buy my own chromecast to stream anything half decent on the TV. Also the TV can hardly handle the new Xbox despite the specs. Appliances online want nothing to do with it and put me on to the TCL who tell me everything is normal, it is a complete joke and wish I never went through either of appliances online or TCL, never again!

3 yr Warranty is useless
I purchased a TCL 55P715 TV on the 27th July 2020 from the Good Guys in Bankstown NSW and had it delivered to my home. I unboxed the product to trial before moving house 23 days ago, Within 2 weeks the TV had a horizontal line and blotching down the left handside of the screen. I followed up with customer support and sent them all the documentation and photo evidence they requested. They have diagnosed the problem as a cracked screen, and refuse to fix or replace the product. It has been in use for 17 days before being reported! Unfortunately I...still have 2 other TCL TVs to unbox. Stick to the reputed brands because of customer service and reputation, TCL has a long way to go to catch up to Samsung, Sony or LG. If it is not replaced I plan to go to the ACCC.

Bang for your buck
My first venture into smart TV's, after reviewing all the brands around the 65" size TV's , the 65P715 came out on top with me with regards to functionality, accessibility and ease of use.
Happy wife happy life.

Excellent TV for the price
Purchased this at Harvey Norman being the 43inch Android TV for $695.00. I had a tech set this up for me as it was my first smart tv. Everything is perfect about the TV and I saved around $300.00 by choosing the TCL. Apps a little tricky to get used too but because I have a google account , I downloaded a lot of the apps from my google play.
