I just purchased this TV at Sams Club for $278. I was skeptical about buying a no name product that I couldn't find reviews about but I figured with the return policy, what the heck?? $278 for a 40" TV?? I got it home and set it up. So far so good. Turned it on and went through the setup menu. Easy. Turned on a NFL game to see how it looked. It was ok. Went to a couple of different stations, news, drama, etc to see how the color looked. Again..just ok. Then I went to the settings menu and adjusted the picture. Then set the settings to 1080i. Wow!! What a difference!! The picture is great, clear and crisp. The colors are balanced and I couldnt be any happier with the picture. Sound was fine just the way it was.

This is a 2nd TV for use in a bedroom. It looks good. Works great. Great price. Not much to dislike. From what I have read these TVs use a Samsung display and the company is the biggest TV manufacturer in China. They are trying to break into the US market. If this TV is any indication of their lineup I think they will do just fine.

This TV is amazing for the price. This is my 2nd TCL LED TV and they are both great. My review would be 5 stars if it weren't for TCL customer service. The delivery process was awesome. I set up the reserved delivery time for 8am to 12pm on Wednesday. I had worked the night before until 4am but set the alarm for 8 am. The delivery guy rang the doorbell at 8:01 am!! He helped me carry it in, set it up, and made sure everything was working. I was so excited I hugged him. (He did not hug me back) It took all of 4 minutes to set this tv up.

I read the other reviews about the tint and tried to install the Firmware upgrade. The "Instructions" on the website are a very vague 3 step process. When I followe them as hey were written, it did not work. I called the TCL customer service number and talked to the most incompetent person I have ever dealt with. All she did was read the instructions to me. (Remember 3 steps) When that didn't work she said she would escalate the issue and someone would call me right back. I asked for her name and operator ID. She gave me the name Mayell and ID LMT-01.

I waited until late afternoon the next day and did not receive a call back so i called in again. I got the 2nd most incompetent person I have ever dealt with. This person again read the instructions to me and when it didn't work, said the supervisor would call me. I told him I had heard that before. He then put me on hold and came back and said, "oh yeah, we were going to call you later but you called us first". Anyway, the procedure did not work again so he wanted me to submit a warranty claim. He needed a copy of my receipt. He gave me his e-mail address and I asked for his name and operator ID. He said "my name is Mike. I am the only Mike in the department. We don't have operator Id's.

I did a lot of extensive research before purchasing this TV. I narrowed it down to TCL and VIZIO. I finally decided on this 58" TCL TV because my entertainment center was too small for a 60" and I wanted something bigger than a 55". I liked the reviews I read and the 2-year warranty was better than any other TV I was considering. Also, I was not interested in 3D or a smart TV (I have a network BluRay player) and so did not want to pay for those features. I recommend anyone considering this TV to check the internet for authorized service locations (google "TCL service center locations") since they are not in every city and you might be stuck paying shipping if you need warranty work. Also, be advised that TCL makes two models of 58" TV's. The 3000X model only comes with 2 HDMI inputs and is less a few other minor features and costs about the same as the 3010 series.

I'll say that I first purchased this same TV from Tiger Direct thru Amazon Marketplace. They used a carrier I never heard of (AIT Worldwide) and the TV arrived broken. There was corner of the box which was visibly pushed in and the foam inside the box was cracked. When I turned on the TV, the screen did not work and one could see visual internal cracks. Also, the AIT guys did not offer to help me unpack or check the TV. They just dropped it off and left. I called Tiger Direct and they would only offer a refund, not a replacement. I had the AIT guys pick it up and 2 weeks later I'm still waiting for my refund. My advice, order direct from Amazon and avoid Tiger Direct.

The TV I have now I ordered directly from Amazon and comes with free Enhanced Delivery. It arrived via CEVA shipping company and the driver brought it in the house and helped me set it up to confirm it worked properly.

I had this TV delivered today and attempted to calibrate it using the Disney WOW Blu-ray that I have used on other TVs in the past. After some adjusting I found the picture to be very good when watching something, but I was disappointed that tint settings were not adjustable. The tint on the picture is slightly off from being natural but unfortunately you cannot change tint. That said I will update this review when TCL calls me back with a solution.

Aside from the tint issue I have no complaints. There is the ability to turn 120hz mode on or off MEMC in the advanced picture settings. This lets you limit the amount of "soap opera effect" that is visible based on your preferences. HIGH has an extremely noticeable effect whereas low is noticeable but helped the flow of sports programming.

My current picture settings (with Tint being locked at 50) are:

Brightness - 43
Contrast - 58
Saturation - 40
Sharpness - 50
Tint - 50
Color Mode - Normal
Back Light - 20
Dynamic Backlight - Off
Dynamic Light Sensor - Off
MEMC - Low

Black levels are very good as was the brightness and contrast. There is little to no glare at all on the screen, which is a huge difference when compared to the Plasma I am replacing. There appears to be a slight blacklight bleed around the corners when the backlight is set too high, but it went away when we set it to 20 as we liked it.

I use a surround sound receiver so I cannot comment on the sound quality of the TV.

EDIT: 5/31/2013

I have been working with TCL Customer Service since posting my initial review and they have sent me a beta firmware that should be released sometime next week.
