TCL 4 Series 2019 Roku Smart TV review: a decent TV overall


The TCL 4 Series 2019 Roku Smart TV is a decent TV overall. It delivers decent picture quality and displays deep blacks in a dark room thanks to its high native contrast ratio. It can't get very bright, and although it has good reflection handling it isn't suitable for a bright room. It lacks a wide color gamut, and due to its low HDR peak brightness, it can't deliver HDR content with vivid colors and bright highlights. The response time is fast and the TV displays fast-moving content with very little blur trail. It offers a responsive gaming performance thanks to the low input lag but unfortunately, it lacks any support for advanced gaming features like FreeSync.

The TCL 4 Series is a decent TV for mixed usage. It has a decent picture quality but can't get very bright, so it's more suitable for dim rooms. It has decent motion handling and a fast response time that leaves only a small blur trail behind fast-moving objects. It has a very low input lag, and it's very responsive, suitable for gaming or use as a PC monitor.

  • Very low input lag, great for games.
  • Great smart features.
  • Can't get bright enough.
  • Image degrades when viewed at an angle.
