TCL ranks among the important actors on the television market, and proposes with this 43EP660, an interesting screen tested by our Laboratory.

Neither too small, neither too large. In short, an average unremarkable model.

The screen of the TCL 43EP660

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. It’s LED and that’s good because the image result is excellent. 
This model has a Ultra HD 4K display. This resolution is clearly better than what is generally done.

The sound of the TCL 43EP660

The sound quality is correct but nothing more. The typical low-medium and mid-range sounds are far from what the competition offers.
