I don't think I understand the enthusiasts comment: There's no way to discover if a set is of enthusiast-level interest without enthusiast input. Besides, even the most die-hard of us sometimes want the low-end lawnmower for the rocky lawn. (Think kids rooms).
As far as the Chinese thing goes---yeah I've read that it is a fully Chinese brand. But what that truly means is anyone's guess, because the various panel lotteries pull from manufacturers all over the place. I haven't been able to find any avsforum-quality reviews of the TCL stuff anywhere.
And I sort of like the display just for display purposes idea. Hundreds of dollars not wasted on WiFi and Apps that can be better handled externally perhaps.
Well vinnie97, one of the kindest and most helpful and respected members here, was banned for silly reasons. And now vinnie_RIP is banned as well. The mark of an inexperienced moderator is to forget that their role is one of resource, not one of petulant authority and further that the members are doing the forum organization a favor by being here, not the other way around. They know darn well they screwed up here.
