More than 10 TCL TVs in previous years have been tested by us. TCL TVs have shown to provide prominent value over the past few years. Despite being the newcomer in the space, they still entered with quite a powerful display by joining themselves with Roku for their advanced features. TCL is flourishing as a company and started launching models that can compete with other big companies such as Sony and Samsung. They are often available at cheaper prices as compared to their competitors, and many people should be happy with their high-ranking models.
TCL 6 Series/R635 2020 QLED
The perfect TCL TV which has been tested is the TCL 6 Series/R635 2020 QLED. It is a great improvement over 2019’s TCL 6 series/R625 2019, and it can match up with higher-ranked and more expensive models. The quantum dot technology enables it to show a very broad color gamut for HDR content and it gets bright enough to actually bring out highlights in HDR.
It is considerable for gaming as it contains a variable refresh rate(VRR) support, low input lag, and quick response time. Its VA panel offers deep blacks and the local dimming feature further strengthens them. The VA panel TV has narrow viewing angles and TCL still has to apply wide viewing angle technology found on the Samsung Q80/ Q80T QLED or the Sony X950H, so it is not recommended for wide seating arrangements.
Our unit also has some issues in uniformity and ordinary out of the box accuracy in color but this depends on the different units. Luckily, it can extract judder from any source, interpolates motion up to 12pfps, and scales up lower resolution content well. Overall, if you want to buy a high-valued model having the same price as other brands then this model of TCL TV is the best choice.
TCL 5 Series/S535 2020 QLED
TCL 5 Series/S535 2020 QLED is the topmost TCL TV that we have tested considering the budget. Similar to the high-ranked TCL 6 series/R635 2020 QLED, this one also had the QLED panel which resulted in a wide color gamut for HDR content. It’s a good option for watching movies in dark rooms and the reason is that it has a great contrast ratio and a decent local feature of dimming.
It scales up the lower resolution content well and it cuts out 24p judder from any source, which is not common for a 60Hz TV. It contains a 60Hz panel and there is no support for VRR. Yet, it has a really low input lag and a satisfactory response time, and a Black frame insertion feature that minimizes screen tearing.
The in-built speakers are common but fortunately, it offers support to eARC, which allows you to send good quality audio to a compatible receiver with the help of an HDMI connection. It is justly well -built and is available in a wide variety of sizes so you can select the one that is suitable for your needs. All in all, if you keep the budget in mind then this TV is right for you. It provides good value for the money in which you can buy it.
