Rated 1 out of 5 by grain190 skip this deal
I bought this yesterday and am returning it today directly after work. I figured I would give the brand a chance & the price was unbeatable for a flat screen LED of this size. But, indeed, it is too good to be true. The picture quality is NOT good. After hours of trying to adjust it, I just gave up. It is blurry and the colors are off. I even switched the picture mode a few times (to vibrant, and personal & reatail), and it switched itself back after about 10 minutes.
The sound is even worse. IDK if its the speakers or what, but the sound reverberates, especially the higher pitch voices/music & it is just awful. I read a few reviews on the brand and they were good so I figured I would try it. Maybe I just got a lemon, IDK, but I HATE this tv. I dont recomend it unless you dont care about the picture quality or sound. I guess if you want to put it in a kid's room or something like that, it is a good deal.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Emyhre Great Price, Good TV
I couldn't believe the price on this TV. There was one previous review that said it turned out to be a bad TV, but I read other reviews from other websites and people were happy. So, I took a chance figuring I could always return it if it was junk, and things turned out really well. I am using it for my wall-mounted kitchen TV when I am cooking or the kids are eating breakfast on the weekends, and it works for that. I am not a techie, so if you wanted me to rate picture and sound quality, I probably wouldn't be the best judge. But it works really well for what I am using it for. And for that price, it couldn't be beat. I would definitely buy it again and would recommend it. I did the site-to-store to avoid shipping costs, and it arrived two days later.
Rated 2 out of 5 by TCLoser TCL shows no TLC
I've had the TCL 39" LED TV for less than a month and last night, while watching the Olympics, I lost my HD/non HD signals from both of my HDMI ports! They just stopped working and are defective. Luckily I had component cables and plugged them in to regain my signal. I had high hopes on the TCL brand because Costco now carries the brand... Now I'll wait to see what Walmart.com will do on a replacement. Like several others, this TV is one of a few that fits the 36" cubby hole of my wall cabinet.
Rated 2 out of 5 by MNtechy I would avoid this TV
I purchased this at Walmart.com for in store pickup since they were not in stock locally. I read the reviews and knew it was a risk since they were mixed with the negatives slightly out weighing the positives. Just thought I'd give it a chance due to the low price and I liked the slim bezel that allowed my to put this 39" set in my armoire. Other units limited me to 37". After 4 days of trying to make it work, I am returning it for credit or exchange.
From the beginning the picture was questionable. After a great deal of tweaking all the available settings I got an acceptable picture/color setup. Howver, it is inconsistant and has to be changed with every different program, video or different source and for different lighting. Very annoying, over all. Then after two days the screen started having an occasional 'flash' in the center area and then the picture was distorted in the center of the screen.
Others commented on the sound. I also find this to be unacceptable. The volume is adequate and working with the EQ settings one can get a reasonably good sound. However, when the volume is turned up very loud the speakers buzz or rattle and there is an annoying squeal or high piched hum that is always present.
I would recommend you bypass this unit and spend a few more dollars on something better.
Rated 2 out of 5 by JeepVols Great value, but very poor sound quality. Side angle is un-sightly to look at (large, bulky, components in plain site, weird design) so be aware of this if it's going to be placed where a side angle is visible. Wasn't able to see this online when ordered, so returned due to this along with the very poor sound quality since I was not going to be using an additional sound bar in this room. Picture qualilty is good for the price, however not excellent. Would only recommend this for a room where sound & appearance is not an issue.
