This is an absolutely great TV set, and the price only makes it better! Picture quality is on par with sets much more expensive than this. Black levels and contrast were surprisingly good. The panel inside the TV is actually made by Samsung, so although it's an off-name brand, it's still fairly legit. TCL uses Samsung panels with most of their TVs. One thing I can definitely recommend is setting yourself up with a good speaker system to go with this thing, because the built in speakers do NOT match the picture quality. Other than that, I've had no problems with it, and I highly recommend it

I used TCL 32" and 42" TV at my house in past. They are quite cheap in comparison with other name Brand. And, I did not see big difference with any other name Brand TV.
Aesthetics are very good for this TV.
But, Just to clarify I am also not very choosy about colors, brightness etc. If you want a simple Big Screen TV without investing heavy money then this is right match for you.

I bought 3 of these before they was listed less than 200. stupid me but i dont regret it i was gonna get the LED ones just because i was focusing more on the thin bezel but i compared the specs and its about a .2" difference the LED ones is .6 these are .8. Honestly its a good product but somethings that they didsnt list that they do come with VGA and component and 2 HDMI. I have been using them for just a bout a day or two and they react very well no bleed the bezel is nice and glossy. The stand is abit cheap looking but who cares its a stand(they dont rotate or anything like that).Also for those looking to run eyefinity these monitors are pretty good thin bezel that you could debezel if you want but its not neccessary. Also if you are using eyefinity I am currently using Guild wars 2 and running at 5780x1080p no lag and I am on medium settings FPS is about 20 to 28 good enough to play the game with no problems I dont know about those shooters or not but I am using a semi cheap card HD 6670 with a display port adapter to dvi and dvi to HDMI for the TV. I have been doing research for a while and there is barely any blackness with off angle viewing (i know its not an IPS) but it does do pretty good. I dont know about the speakers i havent used them i got a sound system for that. But this is a really good buy slim bezel 2x HDMI and USB port for video's i havent seen what formats it can play yet. I can post more info if anyone would like. I took a chance with TCL and i am very happy with my product.

It's kind of hard to rate this thing. I'd maybe give it 3 1/2 stars. I have to agree with another reviewer that it was a good deal at $180, but I wouldn't purchase it at the current price of $350.
-The plastic on this thing is really cheap. I'm afraid that something will snap or crack with minimal force. You can really feel how bad it is when mounting the stand with the equally bad screws.
-It's quite wobbly on the stand. I might worry about that if you have kids or pets running around.
-I'm a little worried about the quality of the internal components and how long they will last.
-The color is really difficult to get right. I was trying for quite a while to dial in a proper red and I don't think this set is capable.
-I can get a decent enough gamma on this thing, but the black levels could be better.
-The noise reduction isn't particularly good.
-For those that are experiencing graininess, turn off the noise reduction and turn the sharpness way down. The sharpness just enhances compression artifacts. You can get away with a higher sharpness setting with Blu-Ray, but streaming video services like Netflix or Amazon Prime will look really grainy. Not sure about antenna, cable or satellite since I don't have them, but I would imagine they are also too compressed for using much sharpness.

Despite all those bad things, the TV is quite watchable if you aren't all that picky or perhaps if you just don't use a TV that often.
-The lighting is quite even on my set.
-The thin bezel is just fantastic compared to other low budget sets out there.
-Sound, while not great, was better than I was expecting for a thin cheap TV.
-It's so light that if you need to move it, most anyone could do it by themselves.
-Two year warranty.

I bought this TV to replace my 32" TCL which was also a superb HDTV.

Let me start off by saying that TV looks GREAT! With it's slim bezel, it looks like a much more expensive TV that it actually is.
The picture quality right out of the box were nice but needed some tweaking. Blacks can look a little milky before tweaking settings. Bring the brightness down a bit and see your blacks REALLY get black! The default brightness is blinding at night anyway. The colors are rich too. I've heard some people complain about graininess, but if your source is a 720p TV channel scaled up on a 42" HDTV you are bound to see some grain. I put a Blu Ray on and it blew me away. Don't quote me on this, but I've heard that TCL still uses Samsung Panels in their TVs. That might explain the picture quality being so good. I like that it had a lot more slots for favorite channels (10 slots). It has a light sensor which is nice. It adjusts the backlight according to ambient light. The USB feature is nice I guess, but I've never once felt the need to look at pictures on my TV. But it's there.

Some of the things I did not like so much were the fact that it only has 2 HDMI inputs. My 32" TCL had 3. It's nice to have extra inputs sometimes, but by no means is this a dealbreaker. The second thing I am not in love with is the sound. It is perfectly fine for regular TV but when you watch a movie it's a little lacking. I can deal with it for the price though. It's a little better sounding than my old TCL anyway.

Some quick pros:
-BIG!
-Excellent picture.
-That bezel. So slim!
-No crazy ghosting.
-Well laid out remote.
-Did I mention this TV was REALLY light? It's lighter than my older 32" TCL.
