Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I purchased this tv on 15 May 2016. After mounting the tv, the top of the screen is actually separating from the frame. It looks like a white light streak across the top of the tv. I have noticed that others on amazon have commented and are in the same situation with the screen separation (read other reviews on this product on amazon). I contacted TCL support. I currently have a case #83602. They requested that I send photos of this problem. I emailed them today with 2 photos of the screen separating. For now, this is definitely a 1 star review. TCL has a serious issue with these televisions. They are well priced, but not a quality product. I was so looking forward to enjoying this tv. I will post back to amazon on the how TCL resolved this issue.
Update 11 Aug 2016: A TCL rep called on 10 Aug 2016 to let me know that another TV was being shipped to my local area and that I would be contacted by ITI (a installation service) for an installation date. I upgraded...
Took a gamble on this as a pre-order from Amazon with no reviews when we pulled the trigger. On paper, it's checks all of the boxes... 55", 4K, Roku, and relatively cheap. We have a smaller non-4K TV from TCL that has worked very well, so extrapolating that experience gave us confidence.
36 hours in, we are very pleased. I've included a couple things below that were concerns while ordering but have proven false.
Picture quality? Very sharp, colors appear normal, and 4K content is beautiful. Baseball on mlb.tv is beautifully clear.
Roku fast? I was worried that they might skimp on the roku processor or memory to result in slow menu changes and streaming issues. Not the case at all. It's as fast or faster than our Roku 2.
Motion blur with sports? None that I can see. They quote 120 refresh rate but I read that it's actually 60 with some sort of up-conversion. Either way, there is no motion blur.
I would not buy this TV. I bought this TV three and a half months ago and it is having hardware issues. I have gone back and forth with TCL support for a few weeks and about 15 emails and they are requiring a recording of the problem I am having. But the problem is sporadic. While streaming Netflix 4K I get occasional artifacts on the screen. Either a big white block appears on one of the bottom quarters of the screen really fast, or the right hand side of the screen kind of stretches into the left hand side for a split second. It is very noticeable and annoying. Yet TCL support apparently thinks I'm making this up. I've tried getting a recording of the problem for them, but i can't just make it happen. It is a sporadic issue that seems to not want to manifest itself when I'm holding up the camera on my phone trying to catch it in action.
So this TV is cheap and 4K, but you get what you pay for. I also have a 70" Vizio 4K that I am much happier with. I bought this one...
