    Excellent TV for the bedroom

    Posted
    RyanH

    This is a terrific 1080p TV for the bedroom. 4K is useless if your screen is under 60 inches and you plan to sit more than six feet away from it. It has very bright and detailed imagery with no light bleed on the sides of the screen, and no “soap opera” effect. The built-in Roku is snappy and easy to use, just like their stand-alone units. I also really appreciate that it has three HDMI inputs instead of just two, which is what most other manufacturers offer at this price range (looking at you, LG and Samsung). As someone who still watches over-the-air TV, I was hesitant to buy this TV at first since the remote does not have a number pad to key-in channels, but the channel guide is very slick and easy to navigate with just the directional pad. My favorite feature is the ability to pause and rewind over-the-air TV (which stand-alone Rokus cannot do). Just plug in a USB 2.0 memory stick (16GB or higher) and you can pause and rewind up to 90 minutes of the channel you are watching. You can’t save and record programs in advance like a full-fledged DVR, but for casual bedroom TV watching, this is a great feature. Early reviews of this TV said that it takes several seconds to “boot up” after powering it on, but thanks to updates that is no longer the case. Other people complained that the large LED stayed on all the time after powering down (which would be annoying), but you can now turn this off in the options. As for downsides, the built-in speakers are less than impressive (like most TVs in this price range), but it does have an optical output jack for adding a soundbar or bookshelf speakers. Also, viewing the screen from the side will result in a somewhat washed-out appearance. So I wouldn’t recommend this TV for a large living room, where people might be watching from the sides. But for a bedroom where you will be watching it straight-on all the time, it can’t be beat!

    Great for the price. I'm not super-techie so can't really get in to specs. But, picture quality is good & it's easy to use & set up. Only a couple downsides: First, not may options for picture - Only 5 pre-set options (light, lighter, normal, dark, darker), but no 'vivid', 'game', 'movie', or ability to customize picture color/tone at all. It has also shut itself down & restarted while using the Netflix app a couple times in the few months I've owned it. But overall, especially for the price, it's a pretty great tv. Love the 'live tv pause' function as well, when using a USB, since I don't have a DVR (cable tv is a racket...only 'tv' channels I use come from antenna/bunny ears) - But only works with a 3.0 drive, not the standard 2.0 so heads up. Hope this helps!

    I had been looking for an upgrade for my living room television - I was recommended to go to Best buy to look- glad I did I fell in love with the Roku Television and for the price I couldn't turn it down - only thing that im unhappy about with it is it has a tendency to turn itself off as your watching Tv- not sure why but it does it regularly - other than that the color is great and the sound I love it and its actually bigger than what the box looks like.

    Excellent picture/price, subpar sound/remote

    For the size, the price cannot be beat, especially with Roku's simple yet effective interface built right in. Sadly, the remote provided is Roku bare-bones, and pairing with even very intelligent remotes (i.e. Xfinity X1) yields very limited control. And as one would expect at this price point, sound is tinny and lacks any bass. However, for a bedroom or garage TV where sound quality isn't the focus, you can't beat the price for the size and capability!

    Exceeded Expectations

    To be quite honest, I was a little wary of purchasing this product at first mainly because of the low price I got it for, and because there was not Geek Squad protection available for purchase. But I've honestly been very satisfied with my television thus far. There have been no issues with it, and the quality has been just as good as a much more expensive TV. I'd definitely recommend this for a starter television :)

    I have this TV in my bedroom. I love the Roku feature and it has a great picture. The only downside for me (which may not apply to anyone else) is that there is no setting to have the TV turn off at a certain time and turn on at a certain time. I used my previous TV as my alarm clock. That is the only downside to this TCL.

    What a great price for 55in Smart tv! Slim, light weight and hang perfectly on my bedroom wall. I wasn't sure about this brand did some researching before purchasing and no problems reported, great sound and picture...I did not give it a 5 star because I don't like the remote.

    This is my first time purchasing a TCL TV. I have seen them in the market for a while but have always bought and LG or Samsung. So far I have no complaints. I hope this brand has staying power because they offer great value.

    This tv is an excellent value for the price, looks great, and has excellent performance with video games. Where it is lacking are some features, manual buttons on the tv itself, and the remote feels a little cheap.

    We have had our TV for about 1 month. We really like it for a cheap TV. The picture is nice and the Smart tv options are great. Very nice for those who want to “splurge” on a limited budget.

    The TV has a very nice picture and the Roku features of the TV are excellent. The smart features are great and I've enjoyed using the roku interface over the fire TV or Android TV alternatives.

    Bought this on Daily deal for less than $200 so it was worth it with roku. This was a gift for someone but heard good feedback from the person I gave it to. Worth the price

    This was a last minute buy once we saw the price. Great picture and easy to set up. I will say I broke my finger setting it up though (saved it from falling over), my only complaint.

    Searched for while, after comparing Picture and features I decided this was the TV to purchase. In addition it is a smart TV with lots of additional channels and features.

    Tv was a great value. Clear picture with adaquete sound. The only issue we having is that the remote lags and there is a pause when changing or attempting to do a command.

    This TV is not a 4K but that doesn't really matter most of the time. The picture is satisfactory especially when the price for a 49" Roku tv is just $200!

    I needed a TV quickly at a low price. This model had desired size at 49” and also included Roku streaming built in. Great deal, great picture.
