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. TCL does not stand behind their products. They subcontract to a pathetic company in Ontario, CA that will do nothing but: 1. Make you wait an eternity to speak to an agent who will: a.
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. For the size and money for this TV you want Radio City Music Hall? If so, hook-up some speakers - there are connections for anything you can imagine. The stand does not allow for adjustment but that is not a consideration for me.
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. A great buy and a purchase I would make again in a heartbeat.
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. This product was reasonably priced and also easy to assemble.
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. I had to tip the old set down quite a bit to keep the picture bright, and from the sides, it would dim out no matter what I did. I knew that plasma sets did not have that problem, but I was not aware that some LED sets don't have that problem either.
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. I have it set up in my kitchen with a DirecTV HD receiver and for the $138 price I have zero complaints.
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. Oh, and I didn't know there was a black plastic ring that needed to be attached prior to screwing the screws in, so I'm glad I looked very closely at the installation diagram.
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.
