The TV industry is always looking for the next big thing. In 2013, it became a "real" 3-D, an idea that quickly died the chaotic death it deserved. Since then, we've had 4K and HDR won, but sets that combine these features with a screen that looks really good cost way north of $ 1,000.
But in 2018, it looks like the new killer feature is something that everyone can come after: low prices.
TCL, a low-budget TV brand known by its partnership with Roku, has announced pricing for the 6-series TVs at CES 2018 at a very affordable $ 600 for the 55-inch Version with a basic remote control. All sets feature the key new features for best picture quality: 4K resolution, Dolby Vision High Dynamic Range, and contrast control zones that allow the TV to darken the picture in selected zones of the TV. This is important to get real blacks while the other colors pop and the key to HDR technology really pays off.
The 55-inch sets have 96 dimming zones and the 65-inch 1
TCL technically sells four TV models, but there are only two models, a 55-inch and a 65-inch. Best Buy's 615 models have only a base voice remote and are $ 50 cheaper, while Amazon's 617 models have a voice remote control.
