Excellent value for the money.
on July 3, 2012
We've had this television for nearly two years now, and have been very pleased. TCL was a new and unknown brand when we bought it, but the 2 year warranty mitigated the risk a bit.
The unit is neither too heavy nor too light. Setup is easy despite the comically translated user guide. Closed-captioning is unusually complicated but a quick Google search will give you the steps. Everything else is very straightforward.
I'm sure that hard-core technophiles will complain about too few HDMI plugs (it has three) but I think it's perfectly adequate for a typical family who are connecting a DVR, a Roku, and a DVD/Blu-ray player.
If you're wanting to connect 4+ devices, then you probably won't be interested in this modestly priced television. On the other hand, if you're average folks like us and are looking for a bargain - you'll likely enjoy this TV as much as we have.
(UPDATE: I've received several questions about connectors - it has jacks/plugs for coax/USB/VGA/SPDIF/RGB-composite(4 sets)/external speaker and headphones. Also, many universal remotes will not work with TCL TVs but we've discovered that HARMONY brand remotes work very well, and "used" ones are really inexpensive.)
Keep the questions coming :-)
