TCL's 8-Series entry into the premium market blew me away with the best black levels I've ever seen on a QLED/LCD display thanks to their 25,000 mini-LED backlight that lives up to the hype.
TCL brings their jam-packed feature set with the Roku TV interface, Dolby Vision, 4K HDR, and Dolby Atmos, an app that helps calibrate your television and so much more!
Thanks so much for watching! You can support my independent content at

How does it look for sports? I'm getting the 65 inch in 1 week and I hear they have a dirty screen effect which drives me nuts. Do you notice this on yours?

@5:21 Is it normal to see visible pixels when you're close to the screen?

Brian Tong 🧐🤨looks a little brighter. But yeah sure I’ll give you that mini-led is nice good to have good contrast and deep black levels but Folks don’t want to lose brightness . Samsung has fald and does not lose brightness. now microled will be a game changer And closer to oled. Sorry mr Apple byte just making sure your keeping it “real”can’t wait for an in-depth review👀.Mini led might not be worth 3000$ just saying

Nope, again I said it’s hard to see the difference through the camera but I can assure and see everyone else’s review that the mini-LeD back light is a game changer for LCD based displays

Overpriced series! It's not even worth $1000. You can get a 55" LG OLED for $1K now! Cheapass remote...WTF? Sorry TCL, BLACKS ARE not AS GUD AS OLED...still! Hundreds of zones, blah blah blah...ALL HYPE! Motion issues, blooming issues...65" OLED as low as $1500...
tigerbalm 8 aylar önce
@Brian Tong I know you didn't.. but all the reviewers seem to insinuate this as if it's a fact inherent of mini LED's and the hundreds of zones and blah blah. My point was, if it's more $$$ than an got to be better in everyway! I would NOT accept any excuses, ie toy remotes, eArc, bluetooth 5.0, USB 3.0, etc!

TLC's Mini LED TVs have zones just like any other LED-LCD based TV, it just has a very high number of zones which usually results in deeper blacks.

$2,999 for vertical banding, DSE, and quality control issues galore? No thanks. And, not sure what this reviewer's doing with his finger. Who taps the screen when they're watching it? Oh, and the ROKU interface sucks mooseballs. I had a TCL for exactly 24 hours before I returned it. The DSE was HORRIBLE.

@Super Sic-o Chur bro. If there's a Costco anywhere near you, that's a great place to pick up a set. You get a 90-day return policy with them so you can really decide if the set works for you or not. Good luck man.

I think I'm going to buy this tv insted of an oled. Because I game during the weekends but when I game I have 8+ hour sessions and if you know oleds then you've herd of burn in (Google it if you've never herd of this) so lcds have a much lower chance of this happening.

My 600hz 1080 plasma looks just as good. WiFi etc “4K” is only 2100ish vertical so no point in getting a 4K unless you use a disk with proper HDMI cord in the only 4K HDMI port.

Looking forward to a possible Samsung version, the motion and image processing of their QLEDs seems to be a generation ahead of anything TCL offers.

Notice TCL compares this set to the Samsung Q80r which has 96 dimming zones, and not to the Samsung Q90r which has 480 dimming zones.

@tigerbalm this is the TCL 8 serious not the 6 series in case some of you are unaware, close to close to or better than the top brands at a cheaper price I'll take that any day all day.

@C&B Lawn Care I've seen LG 65" OLED for $1500 and 55" for $1050! Sony A8G is a better OLED, but $500 more than LG.

The price is too damn high .. they should release a 55-inch for like $1,200 the 65-inch for like $1,600 and the 75-inch for like $2,200 if they want to beat other people's prices

55 inch between $1000 - $1200 .. 65 inch between $1400 - $1600 inch... 75 inch between $2000- $2200 .. if they can figure out them prices it would sell and they need to release the 55-inch cause ain't no one trying to pay the high prices when you can get an OLED for that price or Samsung qled

Put bias lighting behind it and the contrast would be pretty close to OLED.
