TCL Roku TV 4K HDR 2017 Lineup

 

TCL televisions aren’t as well known as some of the other major brands, but I assume this is beginning to change as TCL claims to be America’s fastest-growing television brand.

In my experience, TCL offers TVs with good picture quality and great value at low pricing. It is also one of my “go-to” brands of budget class television manufacturers if I’m looking for a secondary or additional room TV setup.

I also recommend TCL products as an inexpensive option to anyone looking for a TV with decent performance and usable/desired features without having to spend too much cash.

Okay, moving on to the topic of this article.

TCL’s current 4K Ultra HD lineup consists of three new series which include the C-Series, P-Series and S-Series.

The C-Series focuses on styling and appearance and is appropriately called the “Contemporary Design”, and features a super slim and elegant appearance to blend nicely with your room’s decor.

The P-Series is all about picture quality performance and features 72 zones of full-array LED backlighting with local dimming which boost picture contrast for better overall picture quality, especially while viewing images with dark content.

The S-Series (S4) is a value based series which offers 4K performance at the most affordable price point in TCL’s current lineup.

All series’ have the excellent Roku TV smart TV platform built-in to the TV and are powered by the Roku OS 7.5 operating system. This enables fast and easy access to more than 5000 streaming channels and more than 450,000 movies and TV episodes.

All models*are capable of displaying HDR content using TCL’s HDR Dynamic Contrast technology, and are compatible with both Dolby Vision and HDR10 High Dynamic Range formats. These latest technologies optimize brightness for each scene ensuring life-like reproduction of images from the brightest peak whites to the darkest darks.

*Note: The S-Series will only process HDR content using the HDR10 format.

The “C” and “P” series have wide color gamut capability powered by TCL’s NBP Photon technology to achieve greater color space coverage for a more vibrant color palette.
