The Chinese multinational TCL has produced some excellent smart TVs in recent years and, in part, this is also the case with the model we will see today. “In part” because, in some ways, there are some aspects that should be improved, as many users have actually pointed out. However, overall, we think it’s a good value for money smart TV .

The design remains practically identical to the 32ES560 smart TV : somewhat thick panel, slim bezels and very sober feet. The substantial difference lies in the resolution, which in this case is Full HD . Of course, this is not the UHD 4K, and for this reason we cannot expect excellent content quality.

However, as the PPI index of 200 clearly shows , the visual quality is very good. In fact, image processing is based on the efficiency of some technologies (Full HD, HDR and Micro Dimming). The image parameters taken into account by the PPI are contrast, sharpness, color and resolution: this is how it manages to evaluate the quality of the content.

As for the sound, TCL has implemented two full range speakers for a total of 16 watts of total power, supported by the Dolby Digital Plus sound system . However, as in the model mentioned above, even here it will not be possible to expand the sound power with external speakers, since the Bluetooth connection is missing.

The smart section is well stocked with features that allow you to easily navigate the television. The Android 8 operating system has been very popular, although some apps cannot be downloaded from the Google Play Store. The integration with Google Assistant allows you to interact vocally with the TV, through the convenience of voice commands .

The transmission of multimedia contents from the devices to the television panel is also easy, fast and intuitive, also valid for Apple devices . Another function that enriches the smart section is the one dedicated to gaming , which allows you to play both on the TV and on your devices, thus avoiding having to start a game all over again.

The only two real flaws of this TCL smart TV are the slowness when switching on and all the steps to be taken to exit the apps and return to using the normal TV. For the rest, as most users point out, we believe that this model enjoys a very good quality-price ratio , so it’s hard not to be able to enjoy it.
