Summary: Strongly suggest never buying a TCL brand television. The television was purchased new, used five times then broke. TCL's customer service seems to be a one man show and was not helpful. Their warranty is limited so beware. TCL basically said that even though their product stopped turning on, the warranty would not cover a replacement or repair.
Summary: Works great and for the price you cannot beat it. Shipping was a little iffy, however, once that was figured out, I was very happy. Colors are great and the sound is ok. Update - the sound went out and I cannot seem to get. Anyone at. Tcl to answer the phone.
Summary: May 4th, 2013 I don't write many reviews, maybe I should start because I use them all the time to decide on purchases. Case in point, this TLC 46" LED TV. I own 2 of these; one in my office and an identical model in the bedroom. Hey they were cheap and the picture WAS pretty amazing. The TV in my office stopped working this morning 35 days after purchase..UGH! Well, it works but half the screen is darker like a light bulb is out?
Broken During Manufacturing / Replacement also bad

Summary: I was very excited to get this TV. I did my research on the TV itself as well as the brand, and felt comfortable with both. UPS showed up today with a clean, unopened, undamaged box. I took down my old (Olevia 32") TV, routed the cables, put on the plate for the wall mount, and connected the power. It's a beautiful TV. Very thin bezel, small logo, simple red LED around the on switch indicating power is connected. Until I turned it on.
Summary: This tv did not work and I had to send it back. I don't know what was wrong with it; but during the setup it would not scan for channels. It would scan up to 50% and then freeze. I could not get it to scan past 50% after trying it numerous times.
Motion blur, faulty HDMI ports, poor sound, and flawed aesthetics

Summary: I am a fan of TCL TVs. I purchased a 32" TCL LED two years ago for my bedroom, and I love it. Based on that experience, I was happy to purchase this 46" LED, but it has unfortunately failed my expectations in almost every possible way. First of all, this LED is resulting in motion blur, particularly when streaming Netflix and watching cable TV.
Summary: Plugged in TV, didn't work, at all. I was williing to maybe give them another shot so I called "customer service." I was on eternal hold with TCL, then finally gave up, returned TV, bought an LG.
