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.
Purchased in November 2020 for A$9,995.00.

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.
Every dollar well spent on this smart tv couldn't fault it
Very user friendly so easy in fact a 2year old could use it within 5mins of setting it up would be good for old people aswell glad i actually picked this brand
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.
