So maybe you could find a few seconds in a special fx movie where the 2022 single-pixel backlighting is better, but you'd have to be looking for it. I looked at the newest models in the stores before and after buying it, and unless you freeze frame and scrutinize a few isolated moments, you won't see any difference. And this 2020 model is plenty bright. I was so glad to be able to turn up the lights after watching a TCL in dim light for years and still be able to enjoy it. Sometimes I think I should turn the brightness down, but it doesn't hurt eyes to watch it. I find the default settings just fine, and the improvements from calibration are too tiny to matter compared to the normal variations in content coloring. Really it's almost disappointing, you just turn it on and it's just great. No tinkering required.
They have newer models that are brighter than they need, but they don't look so good from the side. Nothing looks as good from all angles as this set, Nothing, except old vacuum tubes. If you don't sit directly in front of it all the time, the side viewing quality of this set far outweighs all picture improvements in the last few years, even OLED and single-pixel backlighting control still can't do better in my opinion. I mean I was ready to plunk down more money, but it still doesn't buy any better movie quality than this for continuous, worry-free viewing.
The only downsides of this set are the weight and the anti-reflection coating. NEC actually has the best anti-reflection coating technology of anything I've ever seen, but they aren't in this market. This set's anti-reflection is better than others but it does spread the light over the screen. So if you like dark movies like 'the batman' or 'john wick' you will find yourself repositioning lights or turning them off, but it's only really visible when you have large areas of black. Unless the picture has large areas of black you won't notice. So Usually I watch news and normal movies with lights up high, and I don't see the fresnel effect at all. But for a few things like film noir and space operas, well they should be seen in the dark anyway if you ask me.
The weight is more of an issue. I would love a carbon fiber shell with this screen. I wouldn't want plastic on an 85" screen. The metal was the only alternative in 2020. Now they have carbon fiber shells but they discontinued this screen manufacturing technology. So I'm stuck with the weight. I live by myself so it's just about unmoveable. It's the only downside to me. I don't play games, and I really like the wide viewing angle. Honestly, I can see keeping this set for the rest of my life. I am 62. So younger people might find something better for games in newer sets, but by the time anything really outstanding shows up, I'll be too blind to tell, lol, so that's why I started by saying it was a bit of a disappointment how good this set was. I'll never see old Lucas films any better. Maybe new Star Treks will get to single-pixel stars some day, but unless they make something with the side-angle viewing of this set with single-pixel backlighting, most people just won't jump for paying for something better. So stars and firework sparks are about as small as they will ever be for at least a decade.
A pleasant surprise was how good the smarts were. In particular, the Internet browser. I have HTML5 with all the latest CSS3 effects on my blog, and it works perfectly on this set. This is a Chrome-quality Internet browser. They don't make much of it elsewhere, but with a 85" screen, I can use a remote keyboard and type emails from 20 feet away while cooking on a stove. That's far more smart technology than I thought I would ever appreciate in a kitchen lol.
And we mostly want other people in the room to be able to enjoy the same picture quality who aren't sitting right in front of the set. So even with a metal shell, zone backlighting, and fresnel flare on light spot reflections, this is still the best you can get. Without any real challenge from flagship models even two years later. That's my opinion.
1) The most GLARING issue (pun definitely intended) is the screen is shiny so you get huge glare streaks off of any light source hitting it that look like a giant smear across the screen. It also is a magnet for fingerprints. Why doesnt this screen have a matte finish?! For $4000 after tax and shipping this thing should be top of the line and have all the bells and whistles but it doesnt even have a basic feature that a $125 computer monitor would have. So disappointed.
2) Things like local dimming cannot be disabled (and theres a rumor that theres a bug where the entire screen will dim randomly even with ambient light detection off). I have my pc hooked up to this tv via hdmi and after I use a webpage that doesn't have dark mode (i.e. amazon) and then close out to desktop (which for me is just a black solid color) what was once a very bright screen is very dim. It's more than just my eyes adjusting, the actual mouse is grey in the middle of the screen and it doesn't turn white again until you move it over an icon or open another white webpage. So I guess the better way of explaining the issue would be the "smart" features are limiting the functionality of the device by trying to do things for you instead of letting you do them yourself.
3) The remote is complete garbage. I get that with the wheel you need less buttons but this thing is half empty!. They have what looks like a silver rocker button to go left or right in the middle but in fact its 2 different buttons that go up and down. One side is for volume and one side is for channels but without reading the manual its not intuitive how to push the button because all of the other buttons on the remote push downward and do one thing not two. These two look like they should be pushed down if they operate like any other button on the remote but instead to go up you push the button from the bottom physically towards the top of the remote... I though you had to push on one side or the other for up and down but nope! Why cant they just leave the rocker style button on here for things like this? There's plenty of room for it. And if you did then all the buttons would function identically. Speaking of design the physical design of its shape is also terrible. Its long and thin and had a rounded bottom so it wobbles anytime you even slightly move the surface its on. It has a nice piano black piece of plastic at the top where it sits so that instantly starts scuffing as soon as you put it on a hard surface due to its tendency to rock back and forth. There's no little foam rubber feet on it to keep it from sliding either so expect this thing to be falling off the coffee table several times a day. I don't mean to be so down on the remote but I'm not going to go up to the tv and fingerbang it to turn it on or change the channel on the "little man in the boat" (wink wink nudge nudge) in the middle at the bottom of the tv. So it really is the ONLY way I interact with the TV and its terrible. Don't get me wrong it works for what I need but ugh its a pain.
Now that the bad stuff is out of the way, let me tell you how much this TV rocks!
- At 75" and 8ft away the people on the screen are larger than life.
- It has a very thin bezel at only about 1/4" all the way around which is nice because there isn't a ton of extra hardware around the screen making the TV physically bigger than 75" but only having 75" viewable. That kind of thing adds weight to a tv and this thing already weighs enough as it is.
- The 4k resolution and 120hz refresh rate make sure that its definitely not the TV bottlenecking any component in your system. I have my pc hooked up to it along with 6 consoles (wii, ps3, xbox360, ps4 pro, xbox one X, and switch) while I did have to put a pretty beefy video card in my pc (rtx2080) to game at 4k it was so worth it.
- As long as all the lights are out in the room movies look amazing and with the sound bar I have hooked up via optical out from this TV they sound really good too.
- It has an ambiance button on the remote so you can turn your tv into either a background color to sort of match your wall or stand out with some design on it like a 75" piece of glowing art.
- Its very thin (still quite heavy though you will want 2 people to help you put it on the wall or even on the included stand) being only about an inch thick and its back is almost perfectly flat.
- The base is central and its a giant curve which means I can perfectly fit my sound bar (and wii sensor on top of that) under the TV and out of the way.... but the base alone does weigh about 30lbs so be ready for that if you're going to use it.
