First Look: TCL's big-screen TV bargain

1:13 /

If you want a really big TV and don't want to pay very much, the 58-inch TCL LE58FHDE3010 is an acceptable choice.

Hi. I'm Ty Pendlebury and this is a review of the TCL LE58FHDE3010. What you get here is a 58-inch LED backlit TV for the same price as the 50-inch plasma. This television doesn't have any features to speak of apart from 3 HDMI ports with HML. So what you're really paying for is the screen. The design of this mobile is a lot more attractive than previous TCL TVs with a very slim black bezel. The end device is also being improved. What hasn't changed though is the picture and this is a mixed blessing. For more color performance has improved, blacks and even mid-level shadows can still crash on most content. While this makes it look like you're getting a pun to your picture, you're actually losing detail. Some quality though is pretty decent if you're not adding a stereo system so this would be good for holiday house or secondary TV. While it predict the TCL will become a force in the coming years, this is the decent television but no challenger to a budget Panasonic Plasma or Sharp television. If what you need is size for [unk] though, the TCL is worth a lot. This has been Ty Pendlebury for CNET.
