Summary: I purchased this TV in Feb 2012 because it had the largest screen for the price. It worked fine for 3 months. Then it suddenly refused to recognize any of the inputs - so no DVD player could be hooked up to it.
Summary: I purchased this TV on the 5th of March, 3 months later, to the exact day, it decided to stop working. I was watching TV in the afternoon when it just decided to shut off. Tried to turn it back on with no luck, plugged it into three other outlets and did a hard reset to no avail.
Summary: I had bought a T.V as a gift for my sister for her first house, and when she opened and install the T.V.,it didn't work at all, the buttons on the T.V. frame didn't work as well, there was no picture or sound. She called the technician, they couldn't help as well.
Summary: The Good "I purchase from AMAZON" The Bad "TCL 40 Inch Television" The Ugly "TCL Service Dept." TCL L40FHDF12TA 40-Inch 1080p 60 Hz LCD HDTV with 2-Year Warranty Like everyone else I was sold by the positive reviews. Amazon shipped fast and it was hanging on the wall in a couple of days.
Summary: I'm 64 years old and have set up many TV's in my lifetime. This one by far was the easiest ever. It has undoubtedly the clearest, most understandable instructions ever and is a virtual breeze to set up. Even with Super Saver Shipping Amazon delivered the well packaged television very fast.
Summary: bought this to replace a dead old 18in lcd computer monoitor for playing games watching streaming video it works better than i had hoped for. for the price ( $320 ish when i purchased it ) there was nothing even close to this. i can't comment on the audio ..
Summary: I now understand why this TV is averaging 4.5 stars. I'll admit I had my reservations about buying the TCL brand TV but all I can say is that I am incredibly happy with the TV and all of its features.
Summary: With some reluctance I purchased this "off-brand" TV. Was originally going to get a Samsung or LG. Turns out to be a fantastic TV! Paid $299 with free shipping. Still can't get over how vivid and clear the picture is. TV was easy to set up and has plenty of HDMI inputs.
Summary: I was skeptical about this $320 TV. So I did research. There is a reason that this is the #1 selling TV on Amazon.com. First, one of the user photos shows that the panel is made by Samsung. In my research I found that TCL is the parent company of RCA.
