Did your Hisense have any issues with the yellow borders or any other DSE? I have the 533-CA and have the yellow borders. I cant unsee it now. I look for it whenever I’m watching TV. Was thinking if the Hisense doesnt have theses problems, I may return my TCL and get the Hisense. How do they compare colour wise, contrast, and brightness.My final thoughts; I agree Bb412's assessment on this TV that the colours and blacks are great however I didn't notice the decompression artefacts or stutter. Honestly, I'd still have this TV if it did not have this horrible yellow brown framed tinge that is noticeable in too much content. In the end, it doesn't meet my minimum standards for a Budget Bedroom TV, let alone a Main Living Room TV, and thus I returned it and picked up the Hisense 65H8G for about $90 more. The H8G picture isn't perfect and took some playing with settings out of the box, but it's what I expected from a budget buy. And it is rated verry similar or higher than the 5 series, only just being replaced as Best Budget due to slightly higher price. Either way, very close TVs.
Who knows, if I were to wait until later this year to see if they've fixed the issue, I'd likely grab the TCL again - but what's done is done. My parents 4 series last year did not have this issue.
Sorry TCL, but I'm now advising friends who are interested in the 5 or 6 models to be on the lookout for this issue, and demand better.
In chatting with our product development team, I'm told some behind-the-scenes stuff took place making is so we shouldn't see any issues with the iPQ Mobile Calibration App crashing. If you run into any issues, PM me your details (model, location, S/N etc) and I'll forward it.
Yeah, they could have spent another .50 cents, and put in a bit more memory for Roku stuff. I wish there was a microsd slot to add one, like on the Ultra.Got the 43" 5-series in the other day and just mounted it this morning in the bedrooms and spent a bunch of hours watching it. It's a big upgrade from the crappy 40" Vizio I had there before. It definitely doesn't get nearly as bright as my 65" TCL 2020 6-series but since I usually just watch stuff in the dark in the bedroom, it's totally fine. Definitely some DSE but the picture for $300 is quite pleasing. I am noticing the Roku OS is a bit slow with Netflix, which never happens on the 6 series. I may have to get a separate Roku stick for this TV which is annoying.
I was going to write that my iPad makes it look a little bit worse but thought there was no need for me to state it. Regular viewing/gaming etc has been pretty good though. When an all white screen comes on i go looking for the dse (i can’t help myself lol) but I’m beginning to accept it a little.I thought the DSE on my 6 series was totally acceptable. When I took photos with my pixel 5 it looked much worse. Might be hard to tell from photos. So YMMV or maybe that's just my phone camera, maybe others can chime in.
Anyways my replacement 43" 5 series arrived and this panel definitely looks better than my previous one overall. That includes DSE.
