Well, after finally unpacking and hanging it on a stand, I think I pretty much lucked out compared to some folk. Yes, there's a little bit of the dark corner anomaly, and just a hair more of it in the lower right. But, so far, it looks like a keeper considering TCL doesn't seem to have the absolute greatest quality control on the planet and the flimsy case and frame seem to be part of the problem. I don't want to jinx it that the next one would have some other, larger problem.
Black levels and color depth are pretty darn good considering the price of the set. HDR could use a bit more oomph in the brightness department, but again, this isn't a mega-thousand dollar display and I didn't expect it was going to match a top end Dolby Vision capable panel.
TCL does need to adjust their local contrast dimming algorithm and, hopefully, they're actually coming out with a new firmware to address this.
Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!
