I’m in the market for a new tv. Saw in rtings that the tcl P6 was coming. The reviews were all awesome online. Got excited that the 65” P6 is releasing here on Wednesday.

I went to abensins today to check out the floor model. The picture quality was awful. No Dolby vision, roku os, Local dimming, etc. Turns out this ISNT the same as what is currently out in the US.

The viewing angles just plain awful.

It’s like my bubble burst. Tcl is being an ass. This is the 2018 models for south east Asia and Pakistan. Same model name na P6 but totally different specs between US and us poor countries. Pero same price.

some of the p6 series pinoy version (with PBA app, lol) is already available in the market since last week. The only one that has not been released is the 65" p6. According to dealers it will probably be released on Wednesday.

i'd stay away from it. Kahit ba it's so much cheaper than the LG's, Samsungs, and Sonys. It sucks

Suggest guys you check out the TCL 65x3...
I think may mark down price na ito.
Very good PQ din for its price and the built in "soundbar" is good too...
Specs says it has Micro Dimming, not sure if this is the same as Local Dimming.

Nope, micro dimming is not real local dimming, sadly. Even the C2 series has that feature.

yup. totally different. pag on palang ng unit makikita mo na difference. Hindi Roku yung OS. Tapos may advertisement ni Manny Pacquiao ka makikita. Sobrang jologs talaga.

guys, youre really better off spending more to get a better TV than this.

sayang hindi same sa US. Pero pansin ko yung itsura ng benta local same itsura ng sa US. Yung laman pala ang major difference. Ganda pa naman ng reviews nung nilabas nila sa US. Kainggit. hehe

Akala ko jackpot na tayo dito pinas.

yes I thought so too. I was floored by the reviews sa US tapos upon actual inspection sa ansons nakita ko yung difference. Buti hindi ko binili sa OLX sellers otherwise idedeliver nila without me even testing it.

ang daya nga e. Same price ng nasa US pero we get the crappy one. Pareho sha sa labas. You can't help but think na ginaidiot tayo ng TCL.

Naglabas na ng bago ang TCL.  P6 naman, looks more or less the same ng p2 natin with more online channels. Not sure kung HDMI 2.0a na, or 2.0 pa rin.

I have the TCL P6 for a week now and been using it mostly as a PC monitor.  I can confirm that this TV has 3 HDMI 2a ports and supports HDR on windows 10 and PS4 Pro.
To enable UHD resolutions, press Settings button on the remote, scroll down to System, then press down again until the Advanced Settings, press it and turn on HDMI 2.0. however make sure that your connected HDMI cable is High speed and Ethernet capable as indicated on its specs.

Haha napadaan ako sa ansons kanina. Inquired about the P6 na kamukha ng r6 sa states.

No roku. Not even android tv. And considered as midrange lang dito sa atin. Mas high end pa yung c2 series na 2017 model. Yun yung may harman kardon na speakers.

Check ko na lang if pwede sa states ko bilhin tc

the r6 sa states have had quite a few recalls due to screen issues. They're calling it the panel lottery. In case you import one and it has the panel issue then you're SOL. I wouldn't risk it

Naguguluhan ako sa mga P6US/P61US/P62US na binebenta dito. Kamukha nila yung R615/R617 pero P ang series. Ang akala ko nirepackage lang using yung 2018 na shell pero 2017 tech pa rin. Pero mas payat sya kaya nagdududa na baka edge-lit na lang sila instead na full-array.

I got the 65P6 for P48,500 from Anson through local distributor.  So far masaya naman po ako. :-)

I know I am not an expert but my family having a 4K Samsung 60" and 4k 50", and a Sony 4K 55" (x7007e) mas preferred ko yung TCL 65P6 especially when playing 4K movies with HDR na din. All those TVs were bought at an amount almost double of what I paid for with TCL in with respect to screen size.

Mukhang pareho nga niyan yung dito satin. Micro dimming ang nakalagay instead na local dimming. Sa payat nya ang hula ko edge-lit sya.

We recently got the TCL C49P3FS. ok naman siya, annoyed lang ako sa home screen, may quick links ng ilang youtube videos na ayaw ko naman panoorin. ang problema, walang option para tanggalin sila dun. Or baka may mga secret remote control keystrokes para magkaroon ng delete video option yung mga nasa home screen na yun. Pinaka annoying dun yung may caption na "goodbye duterte, hello robredo", once you click it you will be transfferred to a youtube video na halatang fan made. others on the home screen are links to some maymay entrata video and your face sounds familiar, and a vice ganda video too. nakakainis, sa dinami dami ng pwedeng ilagay ay mga pang jologs pa ginawang defaults.

The manual lacks info, and i cannot find any good info about this model online aside from product reviews.

Yung software niya is not roku and not android...aside from that annoying home screen shortcut videos, ok naman siya. Remote has a dedicated netflix button, and it can upscale videos too,

Just my opinion, but I think that the P6 here is a repackaged 2018 S517.

Hi tcl owners. How is the tcl brand? Many problems? I wanna get the 50 incher na 4k for my living room sana.

2 of my samsung conked out recently. 1 is around 8 years na. Screen daw. No picture but have sound. The other still ok naman. Around 10 years na, but screen is whitening and cracking na. I wont spend na over 100 thou sa tv hehe.

Now itong tcl baka naman wont last a year or two? Feedback naman. Ty.

After 2 of my tvs conked out. Ayaw ko na din gumastos. Parang disposable ito mga tvs. Very interested tuloy sa tcl hehe.

I forgot to mention that the 2sammy tvs we owned, 1 died and had to be revived (but in a not 100%quality anymore) while the other one is now showing burnouts. :) both are less than 3 years old if i am not mistaken. Kung tatagal tv ko ng mga ganung edad ok na siguro. Pero 2 years naman warranty and based naman dito responsive naman ang customer support. :)
