" ...  For starters, the picture quality is excellent. ... The picture is really crisp and when you're watching HDR movies or TV shows, you'll really notice the difference! ... Not only does it have premium picture quality, but its got the looks to match.  ...  "

comment
" ...  It seems like TCL stepped up their game this year on the budget TVs because these new models have much better picture quality than last year and the all black body design looks great. ... I mostly upgraded to get the 65” for my living room replacing a 55” but the Dolby vision, improved picture quality and edge lighting really makes this years model a much better competitor to name brands.  ...  "

" ...  With 1080, you can still tell you're watching television. ... It also does a decent job of upscaling other non-4K media. ... It doesn't upscale to true 4K media, but it's somewhere between the original format and 4K.  ...  "

" ...  This review is for the TCL 55S517 55-Inch 4K Ultra HD Roku Smart LED. ... This is a great entry level TV in to the 4k world and I highly recommend.  ...  "
comment
" ...  It's been a great update from our previous HD TV. ... The picture is great and we definitely enjoy the Roku TV being built in ... The 4K looks great with using my XBox One X to stream, but when using the Netflix app w/Roku I had to adjust the picture to get it right b/c it was pretty dark. ... We'll definitely continue to enjoy this TV and recommend to anyone look for a great 4K TV that doesn't bust the budget.  ...  "

comment
" ...  I am not a TV expert but I do know what looks good to me and this TV picture looks excellent as far as I can tell. ... I have not searched for any 4K content to watch I just watch regular TV and streaming content and this is my first 4K TV but 98% of the content you will watch is not going to be broadcast in 4K but maybe someday it will so I figured why not get a "future proof" TV and at this price why not.  ...  "

I don't think you'd start seeing a better TV without spending hundreds more than this one, so if you've got to work in a budget, and want a really good, easy to use, crisp, clear, 4K TV, you'll be really happy here.  ...  "
