If you are crazy about Netflix, Youtube, and an almost endless array of shows that you can watch till your eyes drop, then you would appreciate a really good-sized TV with crisp images in colors that pop and sound that sounds like the action was live in your living room. But for those who aren’t very techie, shopping for just the right smart TV is not just about selecting a brand – it’s also deciphering the nuances between LCD, LED, OLED, 4K, HDTV, Full HD etc. because of the huge markup with every upgrade. With cameras, I belong to the school of thought that it’s not the number of Megapixels that matter unless your output is large format. It’s also more prudent since the higher the megapixels, the more expensive the camera gets.  In a similar vein, if you get a lot of pleasure from buying more for less (without, the TCL 6 Series Roku TV will absolutely win over your bargain-hunter heart!

Most experts agree that 50″ or 55″ is a good size for the bedroom or living room in an average-sized home, apartment or condominium. Big enough for a comfortable watch without burning a hole in your pocket like theater homes in the past used to. The TCL 6 Series Roku 55″ TV, considered by experts and users alike as best in the budget class because of its high-end picture enhancements is priced at $649 – about half the price of a Samsung TV. Yet, it does not perform shabbily like other mid-priced generic brands do. With its outstanding picture quality, it’s true value for money with its 4K UHD picture and Dolby sound! What it means is you can say goodbye to lack of detail, humdrum colors or muddy black and whites because of its Contrast Control Zone technology and NBP Photon technology produces “produces a vibrant, rich color palette“. On top of that, Dolby Vision ensures “brighter and more accurate colors”.  And did we forget to mention – it’s great for gaming too!

TCL, once an obscure Chinese brand has now gained a foothold in North America because of its reliable performance and is now the 2nd top-selling brand in the U.S. market and 3rd globally. This growth echoes that of the Korean brand Samsung and if TCL continues this trend without hiccups, it might eventually overtake Samsung for the top spot. At its very competitive price, it is shaking up the smart TV market (and budget American competitor Vizio) for all the right reasons.

And if you’ve experienced the paradox of choice and grown impatient at finding the program you want, the Roku TV smart platform with its “simple intuitive interface” brings all your favorite programs at your fingertips.  With TCL’s simple and straightforward Roku software, you can watch thousands of streaming channels beaming all your favorite news, sports, tech, documentaries, lifestyle, fitness, music, kids, and family shows easily. No more wading through the gamut of 500,000 choices in utter frustration because features are well-arranged and streaming options are easy to find. It’s also cable and antenna-ready, just in case you want it that way. The great thing is that it’s voice-activated and can turn your smartphone into your very own remote control.

Perfect for Father’s Day? You betcha!
