Description

TCL's 6 Series combines stunning 4K HDR picture performance and the award winning Roku TV smart platform in a bold, brushed metal design for a superior TV experience. Dolby Vision delivers greater brightness and contrast, as well as a fuller palette of rich colors. TCL?s Contrast Control Zone technology individually optimizes the image across up to 120 zones to yield striking contrast between light and dark areas. The 6 Series models? iPQ Engine provides precise color replication while HDR Pro Gamma significantly improves HDR performance in any setting. Powerful picture performance is complemented by the Roku OS, providing seamless access your cable box, Blu ray player, gaming console, and other devices without flipping through inputs or complicated menus. An enhanced remote makes it easy to find movie titles, launch or change channels, and even switch inputs, all with your voice. The minimum bandwidth requirements to stream 4K content vary by content provider. For example, Netflix and Youtube state their recommended minimum speed is 25Mbps. Vudu states its minimum is 11Mbps, Amazon recommends a minimum speed of 15Mbps. We recommend that you check with your preferred 4K content provider to see what their requirements are, as they may change from time to time. HDMI Ports: 3 HDMI 2.0 w/HDCP 2.2 (1 ARC); Resolution: 3840 x 2160; USB Ports: 1 USB 2.0. Display Resolution UHD

abunda_amazon_reviews This TV is beautiful, looks high end, and has a great picture. I bought it based on CNET's review that it is the best TV you can get for the money. CNET is right in their assessment. I bought it over an OLED because I watch a lot of CNBC and was worried about burn in. For 4k, looks and price this is the perfect purchase on paper. Unfortunately their QA department is ineffective and lots of poor quality panels are shipped. I lost the panel lottery and have a defective panel with what appears to be the banding issue many talk about in these reviews. Please see pics, it happens on solid whites, light blues, greys and I noticed it occasionally on reds and even on grass during football games. What is even more frustrating is during a movie, without a solid light background, the picture is just phenomenal. But I can't keep a defective panel as football is like most of my viewing time and these vertical rows of circles annoy the heck out of me. TO THE MANUFACTURER: STOP SHIPPING DEFECTIVE PANELS! GET YOUR QA HOUSE IN ORDER AND TEST EVERY PANEL BEFORE IT SHIPS! TO OTHERS considering this TV- I would wait for them to perfect manufacturing and QA. Luckily I kept the box based on other reviews, which is a hassle in a small city apartment. It is also a pain to take the stand off or detach from the wall bracket if you need to return it. It is 65 inches, cumbersome and too heavy for one so if you live alone, it makes preparing it to return a hassle. If you buy it now and get a good panel, you can't beat the value. But realize you are taking a big risk as it seems many are being shipped defective This is all unfortunate since TCL did a great job with the design and the picture truly is great for the money. I feel bad for AMZN , as an AMZN shareholder, as I have no choice but to return this. I hope the manufacturer has to eat the shipping both ways for delivering poor quality product. I truly want to keep this but I just can't keep a defective product that cost $1000. As always, when I called AMZN they were great, and scheduled the return no problem. I will return, wait 6 months and try again.

TCL requested photos to review the problem and went back and forth with me until they ultimately decided the banding issue was "normal" and refused to help. By the time they made this decision, I was just outside of the 30-day Amazon return window. I feel duped by TCL. I really wish I had purchased a different brand TV rather than taking the risk on this.

1.0 out of 5 stars

Obvious defect
Vertical banding noted, like all the other reviews. Messaged TCL about it with no answer. Will return. Sucks because I was waiting for a while for this TV to come out. Sad day.
