TCL’s New Fire TV TVs Could Shake Up the Smart TV Market
With support for Dolby Vision, HDR10/10+, and HLG, the new TCL TVs deliver impressive visual quality. However, as these TVs utilize direct backlighting instead of full-array local dimming, their HDR performance may not match that of top-tier QLED TVs. Some blooming might be noticeable in darker rooms due to limited control over darker areas. For optimal audio experience, investing in one of the best soundbars is recommended, as the built-in Dolby Atmos audio system is typical of budget TVs.
Connectivity options on the new TCL TVs are decent, unless you require ultimate gaming performance. The HDMI ports are HDMI 2.0, and features like Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) and enhanced Audio Return Channel (eARC) are available. Additionally, apart from the Fire TV system integration, the TVs also support Apple’s AirPlay 2 but do not offer Google Cast functionality.
