Purchased in May 2020 for A$800.00.
A Big TV
Covid Home Cinema during Lockdown.
Choice said it was ok so I bought it from Harvey Norman without going into the store and they delivered it promptly. It was very heavy and took me a month of bin cycles to get rid of all the packaging. It has been trouble free and gives a good picture on FHD but lacks scaling skills and shows how bad most of our broadcast SD TV is where it lacks impact and is probably worse than my old Hisense 4k tv. Its android operating system is snappy and full featured with every app you would want or the ability to acce...ss a play store and download it. It works well as a computer monitor with crisp 4:4:4 text at 4k/60Hz and a PC color mode that makes photo editing professional. It is a very functional product and shows how tvs have evolved to be more like computers. To be better, I think I need to find some magic picture settings to improve the picture a smidgin, or use the nbn for viewing at 4k all the time. This size tv would look sexer in a wide screen format if that occurs and the broadcasters definitly need to lift their game and do higher quality free-to-air broadcasts. Update: I improved the colours considerably with white balance settings I found online: Gain R- 0 G- -1 B- -30, Offset R-2 G-0 B-0 My model is 75p8mr and I updated the firmware to the latest but did not notice any changes. I contacted TCL and asked "how do you delete a pvr file" and they said we are working on it but currently just take your memory card to a computer for that. Currently the ABC are annoying me on this TV by often broadcasting substandard FHD and with experimental extra audio, on some programs, for the visually impaired, which I can not turn off on the TV or a connected receiver.

Great until it breaks down
Good sound and picture. Quick response to the remote. Ive had mine for 7 weeks. 2 weeks ago the glitches started. Slower to start up, Slower to respond to the remote, longer waits for apps to load, periodic cutting out and returning to menu, until now where it wont load anything. Its gone haywire...

Great picture:price ratio
All the apps work well and it connects to the internet very easily. The in-built Chromecast works seamlessly. It took a bit of fiddling within the settings, but eventually connected up the ARC return with my LG soundbar and can control it using the TV remote. Having connected the soundbar up immediately, I can't speak to the quality of the in-built TV speakers. The base is sturdy enough. I wouldn't say the picture quality is amazing, with the blacks certainly not great, but that's to be expected from a non-OLED tv. It works well with both TV and gaming through my PS4.
Overall, an excellent value 4K TV.
Not sure what the point of the extra small remote is.

Great value for money
We upgraded by first buying a Big W TV. we returned it pronto and researched affordable TVs in our budget. Hubby bought this on clearance so even better. The sound is way better than we expected and its easy to use and the phone app remote actually works!
Good TV , but can be better
First of all, my model is 75P8MR, not 75P8M. I am quite happy with this TV for the price I paid. This TV runs Android TV and speed is ok
SDR content doesn't have any issue. But I have to say HDR is not ideal. Colour looks washed out for some dark scenes and it lacks of brightness
I purchased this TV after looking at many similar but this was the best in all configuration, excellent.the pictures are extremely beautiful, sound great, l would recommend this TV brand to all.
Good clear tv with better app options
Sharp image, good sound and I like its android so you have more app options like kayo you can put on there. The only negative is it does take sometime to start up and turn on and sometimes a few cliches now and then but over all value for money.

Value for Money
I got the TV a month ago and I am mainly using it for Netflix and Prime. The 4k resolution looks great on streaming. The only downside is that if you are playing a movie from external hard srive, the USB port can only read FAT32 format where you can only transfer files less than 4gb. Most 4k movies are 4GB+. Other than that, you can't get something better than this at only $350. I will recommend this product for those who mainly use their tv for netflix / prime. Its definitely value for money.
Middle of the range
Very clear picture with anything that streams 4K. Not so good with channels that doesn’t support 4K yet. Great sound quality. Nice big screen, looks great.
Sometimes the tv lags when a person is speaking. Not all the time though. You barely notice it. If and when it does happen it’s on Netflix and Stan.
I would put that down to perhaps internet connection. I feel you do need a strong internet connection to get the most out of this tv. Or any 4K tv for that matter.
No issues with the start up menu. It’s fast and of course there is the plus of ...it being android. No Disney plus but you get everything else. Gaming, as my sons are gamers, it runs perfect picture quality. No lagging or interruptions. My kids find it amazing to play on. Overall in general regarding the tv, it’s ok. I’m not completely unhappy with it. I’ve looked at other tv reviews and in all honesty there is always negative and positive. I will give an update in 12 months or in-between if anything drastic happens that buyers may need to be aware of. Ok for the worst part........
Better than expected
Really surprised how good the picture quality is and loving the voice control remote. Would buy again.
We mostly have Samsung’s but needed a cheaper tv and it’s just as good.
For the price .. amazing. But with things that could be better.
I paid $1200 for the 75inch version. I love TVs, home theater and all things associated. I'll start with the good
Motion - The 75inch comes with a 200hz panel ( lower inches come with 100hz panels ) the motion is on pare with my LG B7, it is amazing for the price.
Interface - I'm a large fan of android operating system due to the vast amount of apps you can download.
Size - 1-3 years ago it was unheard of to get a 75inch tv with Dolby vision, 4k and 200hz panel.
And now the bad,
Color - Sometimes when a scene has a person in a dark room and...

Excellent TV - very happy
We bought this TV to replace a projector screen in the media room.
The smart TV functionality is great. Kids love the voice activated remote, and the price was great for the size of TV.
Would highly recommend
Very good overall
Things I like:
1) Price. $463 for a 4K HDR TV is just awesome!
2) Built in chrome cast. A chrome cast ultra would easily set you back $99. It’s very nice to have it built in.
3) YouTube works and loads pretty quickly.
4) very light. Only 10 kg and easy on my swivel wall mount.
Things I don’t like:
1) My living room is very bright during the day and the reflection on the screen makes the screen not viewable even at maximum brightness. My old samsung tv did not have this problem.
2) the second day I could not turn on the tv using the remote. I had to turn the power off and on and it worked.
3) the built in speakers hurts my ears. You will definitely need a sound bar or 5.1 home theatre ...
Great tv but....
I had this tv for a few days. All looks well from start but as the days go i find things that are lacking. First no disney+ or amazon prime support. This is software related and can be easily fixed. Second the unit seems to struggle processing some 4k hdr10 contents. I think this is hardware related and cant be fixed. But overall good sound and good cheap unit that will suffice for not so demanding users. Techie users would be better investing into more expensive ones

Great value for the price
We changed our TV and in the JB Hi-Fi shop, we decided to try a new brand.
We bought a TCL 50P8M QUHD 4K HDR Android TV.
Good range of apps and great sound for standard TV.
Very good picture quality above all for movies on Netflix or Prime Video.
It comes with a 3-year warranty.
I recommend this TV as it is great value for the price.
Fantastic TV and not just for the price
Great TV that out performs many Higher end Tv's, I have even owned LG Oled, I have been looking for tv that has the motion compatibility of a plasma tv, none have ever really been close, this thing has a perfect motion rate with no sign of motion blur or juicer, unbelievable for the money, maybe tv makers have finally worked out how to build a proper tv, I also bought a 55 Samsung a few weeks ago and the motion on this TCL is even better, one gripe is the brightness could be a bit stronger but works fine if you set the brightness to brightness...+ not eco you will find the option. I have only tried the 50" but cant see why the others wouldn't be the same, this tv has 100hz motion blah blah blah where as the 75" inch has 200hz so that should in theory be good. Anyway great Tv that surpasses my expectations and cheap as chips with 3 yr warranty.

Great TV for the price
I bought this TV (50p8m) to downsize from my 55" TCL LCD LED 1080p. The purchase was $595 from JBHIFI, excl. Delivery price.
I'm very satisfied, the home menu is easy to navigate and the picture quality is amazing. The only downside is the occasional judder.
The pictures were taken while playing 4kHDR content: Our Planet, The Witcher and The Lion King.
For anyone wondering, these are the settings I've found to be best:
Black level: 50
Dynamic contrast: Off...
Good TV with many features & apps etc.
2 complaints are that you are reliant upon the remote (there's no darn buttons on the thing) sometimes you just want to hit the off button without finding the remote (it comes with a 2nd limited remote).
Second point, it needs more USB ports, 1 means you can use a mouse or keyboard or media stick but not all 3. Using the remote to go through searches is a pain but the auto-fill works reasonably well to improve this process.
Great tv! No problems so far
1.) it works well when connected to the internet and the buttons on the remote gives easy access to these apps.
2.) very satisfied
3.) very satisfied
4.) yes it does
Questions & Answers
How do I turn of the remote clicks on the 50P8M?
Which hdmi port is 2.0? Got 3 hdmi ports but idk which one is 2.0
My dog ate both of my remotes. Will a generic universal remote work?
