I bought this exact TV from Walmart.com last December , I've personally been very happy with it - there's a small amount of light bleed visible when the screen is completely black but otherwise the picture and sound quality have been surprisingly excellent.
IMO, TCL is the current king of the low end, but I've never needed to call them for support so I dunno how well that works. I've never had much luck with Chinese companies in that regard.
He didn't say that either. He pointed out that TCL is one of the OEM's of Samsung, which is true.
The key is, why did he point out that fact? To me, he was implying that TCL is a Samsung OEM, therefore also implying that TCL uses the same panels that are in Samsung TV's, which you stated.
While some Samsung TV's contain TCL panels, therefore these Samsung TV's contain the same panels of TCL TV's, it is worthwhile to note that:
1. Not ALL Samsung TV's use TCL panels
2. Not ALL TCL TV's contain panels found in Samsung TV's
3. Since TCL is not the sole OEM of Samsung, nor does TCL produce only Samsung TV's, it is likely that TCL TV's will not be of the same quality as Samsung TV's
Therefore, it should not be implied that TCL TV's use the same panels as Samsung TV's, vice versa.
Same reason that you cannot imply Foxconn and Apple both use the same motherboards, but based on the generally favorable reviews of TCL TV's, they seem to be a great value.
