TCL P series Roku TV (2017)

The Good The affordable TCL P series has excellent overall image quality, with deep black levels, rich contrast and accurate color. Its Roku smart TV platform is the best available, with a simple interface and extensive streaming app support. The TV handles both HDR10 and Dolby Vision high dynamic range sources.

The Bad It's only available in the 55-inch size.

The Bottom Line With excellent picture quality and all the latest features for a rock-bottom price, the TCL P series is the TV to get at 55 inches.

Roku smarts, robust picture, ridiculously good 55-inch TV

Late 2017 update

If you want a 55-inch TV and don't want to pay $1,500 for an OLED, the TCL P series is the one to get.

Simply put, no other TV offers this level of picture quality for this cheap a price. At just $650, or $600 for the Best Buy variant (see below), the TCL P costs hundreds less than the 55-inch Sony XBR-X900E, for example, but its picture is just as good -- and in many ways, it's better. It also earned a higher picture-quality score than the much more expensive Samsung Q7 QLED TV.

You read that right. I reviewed the TCL 55P607 when it came out in June, and have compared it to numerous televisions since. It's better than just about all of them, no matter how well known their brand names.
