I was also disappointed after reading the very thorough review of the TCL 8-Series 75 inches model.
With over 25.000 mini LEDs and 900 zones in a 30x30 arrangement i was expecting stellar, one-of-a-kind minimum black level but while its measured amount of 0.001 nits with FALD engaged on "high" is certainly excellent, that amount is matched (and even slightly bested according to a review i read of another set) by myriad other LCD sets.
Perhaps foolishly i was expecting an amount at least as low as 0.0005 nits or even lower, but considering all the unique technology used shouldn't we expect it to be so ?
That figure plus its poor performance during low-level detail scenes at near black as well as its EOTF function curve and the fact that by using FALD leads to dimmer and dimmer brightness highlights the higher the amount of FALD used, gave me pause.
