The TCL 28D3000 with its simple design is an interesting alternative for anyone who wants an elegant television set in the mid-range segment.
The design of the TCL 28D3000 has nothing to do with that of the other models in the TCL D27 series.

The 28D3000 is simply flat.
With an interesting size of 28 inches, Another thing we can highlight in the design of this TV is the design of its support. Indeed it has a double base, in which we have a division where each part of the base has its place. With this, the TV is exactly the same on both sides, thus creating a very symmetrical and stylish TV that can be enjoyed in any room.In conclusion, TCL has worked seriously on the design of this TV set.

TV screen presentation TCL 28D3000

The TCL has a correct and well-calibrated image quality, but you have to do with a limited native contrast that is suitable for daytime viewing; forget about home theater programs in the dark.
With this new model, TCL confirms one of its technological choices. 
The TCL 28D3000 is available in the HD resolution. This resolution is clearly better than what is generally done.
In addition, with a screen of 28 inches, the 28D3000 belongs to the series of small models in its range.Beyond its size, we are still in front of a beautiful quality screen.
With a frequency of 60 Hz, we’re looking at a high-end TV. Perfect image and exceptional synchronization in game or movie mode.
Note that with advanced technology, this TV gives you a HD quality picture .
My opinion to conclude on the display part. It’s in the range, without flourish or excess. An additional choice in the mid-range.

The sound of the TCL 28D3000

It is the custom to say that a good sound comes from a device with a lot of watts, however TCL has managed to combine average audio system power with very good sound quality.
For the sound part, the television set is equipped with two loudspeakers and a power output of 8 W.

Finally, if we have to summarize the sound of the 28D3000 TCL, it is the word correct that comes out.
