If you think the TV is bad, try getting it fixed. **UPDATE**

Summary: TCL is a Chinese company that makes cheap products. Some might say you get what you pay for. I would say you don't even get close. But I am not really talking about inexpensive. Cheap - as in poorly made. It comes in a very nice box. Hang on to it - you will need it to return the junk.
Summary: I bought this TV as I needed a small set temporarily and inexpensively. It is a great buy (bought on sale). Picture is great. Some reviewers describe the sound as "tinny". Maybe so, but it is clear and undistorted, dialog is easily understood.
Versatile with multiple inputs, excellent quality and picture

Summary: I purchased this 24" HDTV for a gift for my mother for her birthday. Limited space in her bedroom (where the TV was to be placed) made me choose something smaller, and for less than $140 shipped I received a solid LED HDTV with a 2 year warranty.
Summary: We are very happy with the picture quality of this television. It fits well in our guest room where our cat hangs out. All of our guests love that we put a television in their room. The cat likes that the guests watch television and pet him. Therefore the cat is happy.
Summary: I replaced a one year old Philips LED/LCD set with this one, and I am pleasantly surprised by how much better this less expensive set works for my application, which is high mounted on a bookcase.
Summary: I can't help but wonder if the folks here that are complaining about the picture spent any time at all setting up this tv. Out of the box, it's pretty bad but selecting the custom settings and turning off all of the auto choices allows you to fine tune it to your liking.
Summary: I had some concerns regarding this TV (24 inch model), based on some of the reviews. I definitely had concerns about mounting the base plate, as it appears many people had some serious issues with that. Well, my base and screws was attached in no time, like 3 minutes tops.
Summary: This is a great little TV for the bedroom. Perfect size, lots of ports for various additions like my computer, mp3 player etc. Sound could be better, but all these smaller flat screens have substandard sound, a pair of speakers fixed that right up.
Summary: This TV Is everything they described plus more. Picture is fantastic very happy with set we ordered for our bedroom. Two year warranty on set. I would recommend it's a bargain for the price has feature of much higher priced set.
