hmmm thinking about upgrading my 37 inch aquos with this but there's not a whole lot of reviews. 100 dollars cheaper than anywhere else though. Repped!

Good Price. This TV hasn't been $399 since like March. Sucks you have to pay tax though.

This is a really nice model at $399. Normally when the deals come up on TV's, they're usually on the 60Hz models, not the 120Hz, which this TCL is. And, this TCL model has the slim bezel so it doesn't look outdated right out of the box. Tax sucks, but free shipping. I'm in for one. Maybe two.

I bought this TV on the pre-Christmas deal. I have to admit, I wasn't expecting much - but I've been pleasently surprised.

The only con I'd give it - is when we go to bed at night -- the TV makes popping noises as it cools down. Not constantly or anything, but maybe once every 5 or 10 minutes for 30-45 minutes.

I purchased a 43" TCL last year from Amazon for $425, so I just bought this one. I have been very pleased with the 43" which is a 60 hz. I have not had any of the popping sounds that Gommer had. This one is going in a den. Thanks OP, and repped. This is a good deal.

CR's Take

This 55-inch 1080p LCD TV, the largest set we've tested from TCL (which previously sold TVs under the RCA brand) offers very good high-definition picture quality at a fairly low price for a set this size. This model has an LED backlight and a claimed 240Hz refresh rate, but not a lot of other features. It also has only two HDMI inputs, fewer than most sets this size.

• Excellent HD image detail

• Edge detail is slightly overenhanced
• Color accuracy falls short
• Color temperature is visibly on the cool side
• Black levels lack depth
• Slight backlight non-uniformity
• Limited viewing angle
• Visible blurring on our motion tests
• This model has fewer useful features than most

Detailed test results

PICTURE QUALITY. This model had very good high-definition picture quality. It did a top-notch job displaying the finest detail. Edges of objects in the image stood out too much because of over-enhancement. Color accuracy was acceptable, but below that of most sets. Color temperature was moderately on the cool side, lending images a bluish tone. Contrast--the difference between the darkest blacks and brightest whites--was good, so images showed some depth and dimension. In this respect, the TV was similar to most of the models we test. The brightness level was good, making it a suitable choice for most rooms. Black levels were only fair -- black areas of the image were too bright, and darker scenes looked unnaturally illuminated. Dark scenes, in particular, were lacking in contrast. In scenes with subtly shaded light-to-dark areas, such as a sky during sunset, the TV did an excellent job producing a smooth transition without distinct, coarse bands. Slight uneven brightness effect created cloudy areas most noticeable on very dark scenes, but wasn't distracting. We routinely see this type of issue with many brands of LCD TVs, regardless of the type of backlight used (CCFL or LED). Though it's generally not a significant problem, it can vary in degree from TV to TV. Film mode operation for HD film-based content was excellent, with no visible jaggies along the edges of objects during motion scenes. Deinterlacing on the other hand was only good, with some jaggies visible when converting 1080i content to the display's native resolution.

SCREEN REFLECTIVITY. Though not as mirror-like as on some LCDs, this screen surface is glossy and therefore susceptible to reflections from a nearby lamp or window. The screen is dark so it does a good job reducing glare from ambient light and maintains contrast even in a bright room.

VIEWING ANGLE. This TCL has a moderate viewing angle overall, decent, but not quite as good as the better-performing LCD sets we've tested. If your family watches the TV from chairs off to the side of the room, they'll see decent but somewhat compromised image quality.

When we moved off to the sides, we saw a reduction of color saturation, particularly noticeable on flesh tones, while the picture lost some contrast mainly due to a rise in black level. While horizontal viewing angle was fair, vertical was good. When we moved from a standing position to a floor-seated position, the picture showed some change in color, contrast, and black level. Note that plasma TVs are currently the only flat-panel technology on the market that provides unlimited viewing angle, with no change in image quality regardless of where the viewer sits.

MOTION BLUR. This TCL TV has only fair motion performance, with significant blurring on our motion tests. Though it claims to have a higher frame rate than 60Hz, a feature designed to reduce motion blur, it could not be found in the menu, and performance was worse than on models with an effective similar feature. On typical program content, the blurring effect is often fleeting and may not bother most people. However, keen-eyed viewers may detect the loss of texture and detail on scenes with movement, especially in high-quality video such as a Blu-ray movie.

INTERNET FEATURES. This TV does not have access to the Internet.

SOUND QUALITY. Sound was good, fine for typical TV programming, but won't reproduce the full range of movie soundtracks and music. This TV has a good volume range with no apparent distortion at the highest volume settings. While the sound has a decent tonal range, it is not as smooth as better-performing sets and deep bass is lacking.

CONTROLS AND CONNECTIVITY. Overall, we found the set easy to use. Setting up the TV for the first time was very easy, as was access to features and controls you'll probably adjust only once. Ease of access to features you typically use more often was very good. Also, the remote is satisfactory, and the on-screen menu is very easy to navigate.

Mounting the TV to the included support stand is easy, though the stand requires the assembly of two parts before mounting. The cable connections on the rear panel are recessed with side or bottom-facing ports, so wires don't protrude beyond the display's depth. Does not accept 1080p/60 via VGA.

INCLUDED IN THE BOX. The TV comes with: a printed user manual, a quick start guide, a remote with batteries.

OPTIMIZED PICTURE SETTINGS. Our expert TV testers recommend the following settings for the TCL LE55FHDF3300Z to get your image looking like the rated picture quality we saw in our lab.

Accessing the picture controls is simple; press the menu button on your remote and navigate to the picture settings menu where you'll see most of the controls. To find some other controls you may additionally have to enter the "advanced settings" or the "picture options" sub menus (name may vary depending on model). Don't worry about making any "mistakes," you can always reset the picture settings to factory default if necessary. Consult your user manual for additional guidance.

Picture Mode: Personal
Contrast (Picture): 80
Brightness: 58
Color: 42
Tint: 0
Sharpness: 10
Color Temperature: 2
Backlight: 45
Miscellaneous: Noise Reduction = Low (no off position), all else off

fwiw, we got a 40" TCL a couple years ago, looks spectacular, supposedly a Samsung panel. Liked it so much we got a 46" from the same generation - it's OK, but the viewing angle is noticeably less than the 40".

Point being they source panels from all over the place, and I wouldn't necessarily count on reviews from one size being applicable to another in the same lineup.
