TCL on Monday announced a massive, eye-catching and eye-wateringly expensive 115-inch mini-LED TV, in addition to some much more reasonably sized 2024 TVs you might actually be able to afford.  

The 115-inch QM89 promises not just a big picture but a bright one with up to 5,000 nits of brightness and 20,000 local dimming zones. You'd typically see screens that size with a projector, but the QM89 is brighter than any projector, and TCL says it's meant to upgrade your home theater setup without compromising image quality -- that is, if you're willing to shell out $20,000.

The company also announced pricing on the successor to our current best overall TV, the QM8.

That model earned high marks in our review for its excellent image quality for the money. It's powered by a mini-LEDs that deliver a brighter picture with better contrast, and more precise local dimming, than standard-sized LEDs. One notable drawback of the QM8 was its limited size offerings, with the smallest being 65 inches.

This year's QM851, first announced at CES 2024, similarly comes in only 65 inches or larger, but you can get a step down model in the Q Series -- like the QM65, QM68 or QM7 -- in smaller sizes. Keep in mind that the QM851 is the top of the line model in that Q series, so you'll compromise some image quality, starting with lower brightness for these smaller sizes. Notably, the QM751 and QM851 are the two models in the series with mini-LED technology. Below is a breakdown of the new sizes and prices in the Q Series.
