Why We Like It – TCL 75R617 4K

The TCL Roku TV comes at a fantastic price and has excellent picture quality. This smart TV has 4K Ultra HD resolution, contrast control zones, Dolby Vision, and a voice remote.

Pros
  • 4K Ultra HD
  • Fast refresh rate
  • HDR compatible
Cons
  • Viewing angle not the widest
  • No Bluetooth
  • No headphone jack on remote

Performance

All the TVs ranging between the 55-inch model, up to the 75-inch model have great performance. They all have 4K Ultra HD resolution and feature Dolby Vision for clear HDR images. They also use Contrast Control Zone Technology to control the local dimming. Gamers will be impressed with the 120Hz refresh rate which reduces motion blur. The Roku operating system ensures you can watch all your favorite shows, and it also has voice control compatibility. The TCL range compares well against the Toshiba 43LF711U20.

Design

TCL TV’s come with the same black design as most new TVs, but they have stylish metallic strips running along the front to give them a more upmarket look. The legs are aggressively styled and need a wide stand. You can also do without stands and use a wall mount if you like. They come with all the usual ports you’d expect including three HDMI ports, a composite video port, and ethernet ports, a headphone jack, and an optical audio output port. If you’d prefer a Fire TV, check out the Insignia NS-50DF710NA19.

Value

The TCL Roku range comes at an affordable price and offers 4K Ultra HD picture quality, and also supports Dolby Vision HDR. Compared to similarly-priced TVs, they also offer a quick refresh rate of 120Hz. Of course, the main reason to get a Roku TV is to access your streaming services. These TVs allow easy access to Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, and more at the touch of a button and also have voice control. The TCL range offers exceptional value like the TCL 32s327 Roku and represents the best buy in its class.

TCL 75R617 4K Wrap Up

TCL Roku TVs make it easy to switch between your favorite streaming services and offer excellent picture and sound quality. 4K Ultra HD resolution comes as standard, and they also have Dolby Vision compatibility. The 120Hz refresh rate is also better than many competitors. Unfortunately, there’s no Bluetooth, but you should be able to use the remote control and app for most features.
