The screen of the TCL 65C715

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 quality of the LED gives an excellent rendering.
The TCL 65C715 is available in the Ultra HD 4K resolution. With a screen size of 64.5 inches, this 65C715 is positioned in the segment of large models. At the same time, we are dealing with a nice display on the screen.

My opinion to conclude on the display part. It’s in the range, without flourish or excess. An additional choice in the mid-range.
