TCL Owner's thread
« on: Nov 03, 2016 at 09:49 AM »
On Amazon the top 20 brands for LED TVs are TCL, Sony & Samsung.

The brand TCL is unfamiliar to me and the pricing is very attractive.

So owners how do you like your TCL?

Recently bought TCL 55E5900 inch. So far satisfied with the picture quality. With dedicated remote button for netflix and you tube. Need some adjusting if your previous TV is non smart. Digital TV ready so no need to buy digibox. 4K with 64 bit processing and with USB 3.0 slot and optical out. Cons is that no PC input for RGB, HDMI only.  Cost is 29k.

It's a pretty common brand in the Caribbean when I was there. They tend to crush blacks quite a bit out of the box and have very simple image controls (at least the ones that I've tinkered with). The image quality is generally quite decent though, especially given the price point.

They make TVs and sell them under better-known brands too (especially in the US market).

Mga sir/mam,

Urgent issue lang po..

I need help po about sa tv ko. Brand: Devant LED TV, Model: 50DE500, Size: 55"
I accidentally hit the TV screen with a hard object tapos nabasag yung screen nya.. My idea po ba kayo kung magkano aabutin kapag pina repair yung TV or kung parts lang yung bibilhin ko para ma replace yung screen, saan nman pwede umorder or makahanap ng parts? I badly need some options kung bibili nalang ako ng bago kung swak naman sa budget or ipagawa ko nalang kc sayang nman kung naka display lang pero sira nman at di na magamit..

salamat sa mga mag rereply..

need mo na sir bumili ng bago. 70% to 80% ang cost mo nyan sa orig price. para ka rin bumili ng bago. it happened to me when my son accidentally thrown his toy on my TV.. pag broken panel kalasin mo nalang ang TV at ibenta sa electronic shop ang pwede ibenta.

Looking forward to some feedback on TCL TVs as well. Out of all the budget brands, I'm most willing to give TCL a chance. Looking between LG's 49UH7700 and TCL's 50E5900 right now.
Never stop learning.

Got my 5 month old TCL tv replaced with new one. Good thing the box was still intact. There were a lot of replacement for TCL tv. The first batch has 4 units, the second batch 11 units. Good thing TCL replaced the defective units. The unit itself is okay. It is in the wifi that has a problem. According to the technician, motherboard problem. Need to input the password everytime I turn on the tv. Also reboots intermittently if using wifi.

Just got the TCL 49 P2US 4k TV for 26K ...not bad i think. I was intending to buy the Samsung 43 UHD at Abenson for the price of 24.5k and that the size i need but for the difference of only 1.5k i decided to get the TCL instead. I am enjoying testing the TCL with my regular 1080 files but I dont have a 4K file yet. To those who tested watching 4k files with the TV how do you find it in terms of picture quality?

For regular local tv broadcast, I always opt for the NORMAL view because its too big i think. Dapat talaga mas maliit maybe the 43 should have been better considering my viewing distance. Now may I ask, kung sa NORMAL view ba with black bars on both sides, mas matipid ba sa kuryente as compared to the full size which covers the entire 49"?

Just bought a TCL 49C2US the other day. Image quality is not bad compared to our Samsung JS7200. There's some noticeable clouding on the upper corners but not too bad if you dial down the backlight a bit. PS4 Pro 4k and HDR output are both working well on the TV. Stock speakers are better than the usual that come with flat panels. Manual sucks though; you have to figure everything out by yourself, which may not be easy if you're unfamiliar with the Android TV platform. Some bloatware is installed so you'll have to disable some apps if you want a vanilla Android TV experience but Android TV also means you get polished apps for major content platforms. I've used Netflix, Spotify, Fox+ and Kodi so far and I really prefer Android's interface versus Samsung's Tizen. Performance with Kodi is so-so; there's some stuttering with large movie files so the TV's chipset obviously isn't top end but I don't really mind since I run Kodi from our NAS anyway. Overall, not bad for 35k based on initial impressions.

heads up, para sa mga nagaakala na yung highly rated TCL p607 abroad is the same as p2 series sa pinas ay magkaiba pala, p607 is FALD (full array local dimming) and p2 is edge lit, nagtaka din ako yung chinek ko sa appliance center yung p2, its so dim, i checked tcl philippines, p2 pla is only rated below 300nits, as opposed to p607 na can reach 700nits according s reviews and in avg can sustain 450nits. bang for buck sana tong tcl if same lng sila. oh well

The C807 in the US is the same as the C2 here, except they have Roku TV and Dolby Vision support over there and we get Android TV and just HDR10 over here.
The P2 here is actually the S405 in the US. We don't get the equivalent of the P607, unfortunately.

Just purchased the 43P2US model. I haven't got the unit yet since manggagaling ang stock sa ibang branch dahil nagkaka ubusan yung model na to even sa SM sa location namin. Got it for only 23.3K cash promo. Hopefully to get it tomorrow or on Thursday. This is actually my only 2nd time i bought an LED tv since 2011 coming from a Sharp aquos basic TV. So I'm wondering about the quality and durability of TCL tv's since they offer good warranty. My sharp tv is still working. It's just that it had few horizontal lines on the screen. Hoping this TV will last even after warranty period for few years.

After auditioning the 65 p2, lg 6320 and samsung 6001, the tcl can actually beat these two squarely in terms of  video quality, using only ordinary movie files with a resolution lower than 480p via a direct usb connection. The artifacts on the lg and samsung are more obvious than in TCL despite continued tweaking done by the sales guy. The movie file inTCL is more watchable for me.

My media player nexbox connects easily with the TCL and lg, while the samsung simply dont see it.
