Size Name: 40-Inch
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 :-)

I bought this same tv a few months ago and love it! Nice picture and the sound quality is pretty good. We had a little bit of trouble putting the stand on it (lining up the screw holes), but managed to make it work. I've just purchased another one for the other room. Well worth the price!

Size Name: 40-Inch Verified Purchase
This is my first LCD TV so I have no previous experience to compare this set with. The TV I replaced was an standard CRT about half the size of this one. I first had this TV delivered to me a week ago but it had a crack in the screen. Thanks to Amazon's replacement policy I got a brand new one in two days at no extra cost.
The TV was packaged properly with all the necessary padding. It was boxed upside down for some reason though and I don't know if this is normal. The base was easy to screw on by myself (Just layed the set on it's back on a soft surface. Also, the base can only fit one way so don't force it). It's lighter than my old TV so putting it in place was easy enough.
My first impression after connecting and powering up was disappointment. There was a lot of ghosting and the overall brightness was poor. But this was with a regular coaxial connection from my cable box so I tried the VGA and noticed a significant improvement. The TV really shined when I connected my laptop through the PC input and ran a high quality sample video. I was instantly impressed. There were very bright colours, sharp edges and no blurring.
So I'm getting an HDMI cable ASAP. A few things to note: The USB media option apparently only works with MP3's and images so if your thinking about playing movies from a USB stick then you're going to be disappointed. You have to adjust the picture mode depending on what you're watching. For example, cable doesnt always show in letter-box so watching it in cinema mode may distort and blur the image. Finally, I haven't gotten my universal remote to work with it as yet so you might also have that problem. But it's a relatively unknown brand so I guess that's expected
I recommend this if your moving up from a CRT or if you need a cheap decent second TV.

***UPDATE: I got my cable remote to work with it. Just used the automatic search feature of the remote and now I can adjust the volume.

Size Name: 40-Inch
Just like the title says, there is virtually no input lag on this tv. I went from a tube tv in the bedroom (tube tv's having no input lag whatsoever just straight monitor) to this, and it's practically identical feeling only it's 1080p and it looks great! The game I tested it on is Modern Warfare 3 on my PS3 (the ultimate lag testing game-I can't think of anything faster paced) and I tested it with Halo Reach on my Xbox 360 when I first got it this afternoon to make sure it worked and it did great on that too. There was another review that mentioned he had tested it on a couple games and it didn't seem to have input lag, but he didn't mention WHAT games so I was still unsure as you wouldn't really notice as sharply on most games. I took a chance and I am here to tell you that I felt in control and no lag the whole time- super pleased! Got straight on here to let you guys know because I saw a few people asking about it in the comments on other reviews and its a major concern especially if that's the bulk of what you're going to be doing with it:)

I've had the input lag problem with several tv's including my Toshiba 46" 1080P 240hz in the living room that doesn't feel right totally. It even has game mode which basically cancels extra processing and speeds up the image response like .33hz or something to combat input lag. I believe the fact that this TCL TV is 60hz is a contributing factor to it's lack of input lag. No overprocessing which you don't need with a good hdmi signal from the source anyway, just a good solid 1080p responsive picture. Don't get me wrong, this tv has bells and whistles too, but I think the Toshibas problem (only concerning input lag) is the 240hz and the other processing it does to put out an amazing picture- takes more time to think.
