5. TCL P6

tcl-p6
 Honorable Mention
  • Elegant yet subtle design
  • Larger display with great visuals
  • True to life colours

TCL is a Chinese electronics manufacturer that recently came to the limelight after acquiring the rights for manufacturing Android smartphones for Blackberry.

The TCL P6 is a 43-inch full HD LED TV that has only one primary function – viewing content offline without any smart features inside.

Design and Build Quality

TCL followed a minimalistic design approach on this product. Nothing seems out of place and too much eye catchy.

The bezels, though not absolutely minimal doesn’t seem like too much mainly because of the larger size display compensating it.

The entire construction is of plastic which doesn’t feel premium but does just right for its price.

Display

The TCL P6 packs in a 43-inch 4K Ultra HD display with a refresh rate of 60Hz.

This 43-inch 3840 x 2160 pixel display features TCL’s signature direct LED backlight technology that enhances the colour gamut and contrast ratio to provide you with a better picture.

Being a true colour display, the accuracy of colours that are displayed on the screen is much better than most of the competitors in the same price segment

With the Dynamic Noise Reduction (DNR) technology built in, this LED TV reduces the signal interference with other electronic equipment in the vicinity and delivers detailed images and videos.

Overall, the TCL P6 packs in an excellent quality display panel which is worth every penny you spend on this product.

Audio

Budget LED TV’s usually neglect the sound department altogether. This may be due to the fear of overshooting the expected marketing price.

Same is the case with this LED TV as well. The TCL P6 comes with two speakers rated at 16W RMS output.

These speakers are sufficiently loud and while perfectly usable in small rooms, we’d suggest you buy an external Bluetooth speaker setup for much better quality sound output.

Miscellaneous

TCL P6 comes with an auto volume leveller feature. This will automatically adjust sudden volume fluctuations without blowing your ears off violently.

With the USB ports supporting a wide variety of multimedia formats, you can view movies and photos of different formats without converting.

And yes – the TCL P6 is a smart TV with Wi-Fi connectivity on board. Popular apps like Netflix and Youtube comes preloaded with the device and even has a dedicated shortcut for Netflix on the remote.

Verdict

The TCL P6 is definitely one of the best-LED TV under Rs.30,000 which delivers excellent picture quality with finer details, thanks to the 4K Ultra HD panel.

The only gripe we find with this product is the lack of a wider service centre network which we think might hinder the prospective buyers from making a decision.
