The Hisceme received an 8.3 vs the TCL 8.0 in their objective testing. DSE isn't enough for that great of a difference and their test units DSE grades are similar. I suspect those complaining about Ratings recommendation own TCLs.
Lets see, Hiscene has 2.6k better contrast, better dimming, a hair more brightness, better reflection handling, faster panel, less flicker from it's light source, 120hz panel and 120hz BFI while the TCL has 60hz. Sony has shown that 120hz BFI is best for motion on all content.
