Sound Issue not good
The sound keeps making a pop from low sound then pops to a louder sound every 5 minutes or so. I wrote to TCL on the 16th June 20 and to this day I have not heard back. I’ve written to them again. Failing this next stop Fair Trading.

NON STOP PROBLEMS
TCL TV plagued by problems. TCL's service department kept insisting that nothing was wrong and I just needed to update the programs. This was done several times but problems kept occuring. After involving the retailer they agreed to send out a technician who replaced the board. We are not about to go onto our second board. Our concerns have been ignored by TCL. Would never again buy their product.

Good TV for price
Good TV for the price.The apps all work well.Picture quality on HD channels is superb, but on Standard Def channels picture quality is woeful, and virtually not worth watching, so that cuts out a lot of free to air channels.Sound quality is as expected a bit ordinary, but connected to Bose Home theatre sound is very good.Overall happy with it for over six months now, its just a shame about the standard definition quality.

Great Value of Money
With the money spent, definitely worth having it.
The screen is quite clear. The Android system is easy to use. All functions work well.
Would recommend this with a limited budget.

Good decision awesome TV
After doing many research on smart televisions I came across this and found it to be of a good price for the features that it has. I was glad that I purchased this TV. It has lots of features and has a good sound too.

The panel quality isn't good
I have just got this tv for a few hours. Found out a defect in the panel. There is a dark strike downward from the right edge near the bottom corner of the tv. It is more visible in person and very distracting. Unacceptable for a brand new TV. All banding and dirty corners are fine but not an inward strike from a point on on edge like this. The process of solving the problem is extremely frustrating. After emailing and calling The Good Guys for 11 times I could finally get a Home Repair Invoice. I then have to deal with TCL again from the begin...ning, having to submit a lot of photos and proofs for remote and initial assessment again. Now I am waiting for them to get back to me, possibly their assessment team, then their collection team, and then their technician team. They will make sure you give up before it's resolved. Call wait time is 35 to 45 mins before anyone attends. They promised to sort it out and call me back in 1-2 hours but they never do and I have to call them again. You should purchase something else, and with change of mind policy.

Fantastic TV for the price
We purchased this tv in a 55" version and our kids loved how easy it was to use and navigate arround apps. It featured great picture quality for their WiiU and blurays were very well impressive on graphics.
We loved it and went and bought the bigger vision for ourselves and now have it in our living room. We have had the smaller 1 for almost 6 months and the big 1 for 2 months. No problems, no complications.
Awesome Android TV for the price.

Bar none, the worst TV we have EVER purchased, VERY disappointed in TCL
Sorry in advance for the long review but it sums up our drawn out saga with TCL. We purchased our TCL P8S 65" TV in October 2019 after reading reasonable reviews on mainly US websites as there weren't any reviews on this TV at the time and the sales rep assured us that the TCL brand offered great quality & value (we have absolutely no issues with the sales rep). We ended up writing the very first review (which we have since asked the retailer to remove) after only one day of watching commercial TV (and not Apps) as we initially thought the TV w...as okay for the price paid, that was until we started using Netflix and other apps (after writing the review). The first issue's were that the picture quality would randomly go blurry then come good and the audio and visual display intermittently didn't sync on most apps which became very frustrating, very quickly. After speaking with a staff member at the retail shop, the suggestion was made that the syncing issue was more than likely to do with our internet server & or speed so we just hoped that it improved. After another couple of weeks, more issues developed so we contacted the store who referred us to TCL customer service. This is where our headache began. The first avenue was for us to do a factory reset which wipes all of the apps and other data we had spent quite some time loading. At first the TV seemed okay (again commercial TV) but after reloading several apps, we realised that the TV now had new issues. The audio/ visual sync and blurry picture issue was back but now the TV kept freezing up, Netflix kept stating messages that numerous programs were unavailable, other apps wouldn't work and the audio from one program played over an entirely different app or program. We again contacted TCL who asked us to email video proof of the issues. We had taken a few, so we sent them the same day. On recontacting TCL, we were again asked to reset the TV (and again wipe all of the apps and data to start over). Within a day of doing so and spending ages reloading the apps once again, we were right back at the start with the same issues only now with additional problems. The TV now would freeze up entirely which required turning off at the wall and starting again continually. The audio/ visual issue not syncing started occurring on commercial TV as did the blurry picture quality. In addition, the picture started freezing whilst the audio would continue when all of a sudden, the picture would commence with the audio totally out of sync. We again contacted TCL after losing total confidence in the brand asking to get our money back (considering that this had all started within a week of having a brand new TV) but they insisted that we again send them additional video and images of the issues. We recorded about a dozen video's of various issues and took several images most of which we emailed to TCL. On contacting TCL yet again, we were told that they now needed to send a TCL technician to verify that the TV had a fault!!! Despite arguing the point that we had sent numerous videos and images, they still insisted on sending a tech. By this stage, over two months had passed since first complaining which had resulted in two months of resorting to iPads or other devices to watch our programs.
