Advice: unless you need this TV RIGHT NOW, don't take on a payment plan. Even interest-free. Wait til you have the money to pay then enjoy the TV debt-free. You don't want to risk missing a payment and paying late fees and it's a drag seeing those little chunks of payments go on for weeks after you already have the TV.

https://www.ramseysolutions.com/debt/di ... ment-plans

I appreciate the advice, but I'm not going to be missing a payment. It's only 5 months long and it's a lot more bearable to me than seeing 720 deducted right away.

I get it. You do you. When I heard you mention a payment plan, I just couldn't help but offer up some stuff I've learned from experience. Bookmark that Ramsey site. Never know when you might need it.

thanks dude

It'll be delivered in a week. I'm excited cause I haven't had a TV of this higher quality before. That TCL unexpectedly kinda sucked. I put too much stock in the "4K" and not enough in all the other variables. I think it was like 400 a few years ago

Did you find the HDR on the TCL super cloudy and dark? That was my experience when I bought one of their sets a few years ago, ended up returning it

Yeah it was pretty dark. I don't know the verbage you're supposed to use with TV talk but I couldn't get the brightness or colors right, especially in video games. I tried a lot of recommended calibrations and it only helped a little bit. Apparently the higher end TCLs aren't so bad, but this was a cheaper one. Pretty glad it crapped out on me so I could upgrade without the guilt.

Let us know how you like it in a few months. I know I'm going to want a new one sooner or later. I thought I had heard a lot of good things about TCL, so these posts are a disappointment.

there are higher quality TCLs apparently, but I'd rather go with another brand at this point

I'm not happy with my Samsung and it's smart tv capabilities. It's pretty old though and was probably among the very early smart tv's.

Welp. Screen went fuzzy. I unplugged it, changed the picture size, swapped out HDMI cables...nothing.

Somebody tell me what to buy. I have a small living room and anything above 50 inch is too much.

Too many to count.

I reset my Roku device and it's clear now. Something still seems just a little off, but it could just be my old, gay eyes.

It's possible that the Roku was blocking some of the P's.

Roku would never do that to me.
