So what's the verdict on this tv? Was it a decent deal now that all the Black Friday and cyber Monday deals are over? I would've loved to buy a 65 inch and return this but was never able to find one in stock.

found this useful tip on rtings.com for BGR TVs used as a monitor, which this TCL is:

"HOW TO ENABLE AND TUNE CLEARTYPE
If you want to use ClearType to improve text clarity, type in 'Cleartype' in the Windows search bar and choose the option 'Adjust ClearType text.' You'll then be prompted to go through a five-step tuning guide where you have to choose the box that looks best to you. On the first test where there are only two options, although it isn't clearly stated, the left choice is for monitors with an RGB sub-pixel layout, while the right one is for a BGR layout. Afterward, complete the tuning as directed. As always, features like ClearType are a matter of taste and some people may find it bothersome on some monitors, so you should adjust it to your preference. If you don't get the desired result, the tuning can always be performed again or you can disable it completely."

when TCL tv's are used as pc monitor for 16 hours a day, they die quick.
because they use cheap led strips

consider yourself lucky if you get 12000 hours out of this

I already have dim spots in my 43s405, which is just under 2 years old.

These are disposable tv's.

my first 43s405 burned out one led which resulted in the whole half of the screen to shut off.


I was looking at my screen while an led went dim.

I wonder if other TV brands are more reliable when you use them for 16 hours a day.

this is what my white screen looks like with a big dim spot in the upper mid left area....

Anyone know how to control data usage on this TV? Streaming 7 hours a 7 at 4K is going to go beyond the permitted usage

Quote from nootnoot :
Hmm...I want a relatively big TV for my room. What's the chances of getting one under 100$ that's similar to this in size black friday?

Also, is it possible to use a dongle to enable bluetooth, so I can use bluetooth headphones on TVs like this? I know some are capable, but not all.
Ask you spouse/partner to not mind the noise or sleep in the next room, lol.

this tv has bluetooth built in. I use a Sony bluetooth headset with this. Enable it in the Android menu, not the TVs TCL menu

Quote from kwadguy :
Can anyone comment on this TV versus the 43-in Roku version that has been available for a few years when being used for a monitor?

The 43S425 or whatever it's called is an excellent inexpensive 43-in 4K monitor. That's what I would buy one of these for. But only if it's as good as the other one.
I tried the 39" TV as a monitor and my eyes hurt pretty bad trying to look at it. Don't understand how people are able to do that.

Quote from HuntG :
If you are going to use displays this size, you really need to be 3' or more away. I use 3 of these for monitors and love them, well 2 of this one and 1 of the ROKU. If you are getting it for a TV, then the ROKU is better and the image on the older Roku model is a little brighter.
If you dont mind please, can you please post a pic of your setup? I did like to see how you have 3 of these setup, how big the desk, distance between screens and keyboard mouse and finally the chair. I tried to use it as a monitor and It was pretty bad for me, I reverted back to actual monitor.

Quote from HanSoo417 :
Agreed! I don't know why so many people prefer roku over android.

The ability to watch youtube without ads alone is worth the switch to android for me.
Any idea on how to set data limit on this? The data saver doesnt work (looks like when it is on WIFI) and its burning through quite a bit at 4K.

I am trying to decide between this and the Insignia fire tv version, which has the data limit functionality...

Quote from Phrancis5 :
Like many folks here, I researched cheap 4K chroma 4.4.4 capable TV's to use as a huge PC monitor and decided on this TCL. I got this android version on sale and have been using it (and a secondary 34" LG monitor off to the side) for a few weeks now. I use it for light gaming and do graphics/multimedia work switching between a gaming laptop and work desktop. I just got a new Macbook Pro, but don't have a thunderbolt to hdmi cable to test it out yet.
Did you do anything special to get 4:4:4 chroma?

I have the Roku version that works fine, but I just got this Android version and the chroma is off. I've been looking all over settings to see if I can change something but nothing I do works. I know the cable and GPU card is good because the same computer/cables work with the Roku TCL version.
