OLED, QLED, LCD, LED and blah blah blah. Lots of acronyms that most consumers just skip right over.
But for those of us who are looking for quality, a good price, ease of use, and longevity when picking their next TV set, I look at the entire picture—no pun intended.
That’s why when my wife asked for a new TV for our bedroom I thought immediately it was TCL 8 series time! Yes, I finally get to try out all of those new tech goodies from China. I have a TCL 6 series from 2019 and love it—more than my OLED.
And then she saw the price. And then she found out that those TVs have some interesting connections to the Chinese government.
She also did not want a massive TV. We have a 65-inch 8 Series Samsung from 2017 as our main theatre TV. When I argued that we could oh so easily just move that into the bedroom and upgrade the big screen, she laughed at me.
But there is a more important reason she gets the pick on this TV. She suffers from stage four kidney failure and many days needs to rest in bed with our two dogs. She wanted a TV with a great picture, ease of use, something that will last a long time and that was easy to connect with a soundbar with a great selection of apps.
