I’ve been following and reviewing TCL TVs for the past several years, and what I’ve discovered is the quality improvements with their displays – in particular, picture quality – has become much better over the years, while their pricing has remained very affordable. Lasts years 6-Series set a good example for this trend; this lineup was very popular with consumers and received good industry reviews while achieving very good performance.
Update: All models available now!
