If there’s one thing the pandemic has taught us all, it’s that streaming is an essential service. It’s also taught us to wash hands better, but that’s more life advice and less relevant to why you’re probably reading Gear Diary. In any case, if you’ve been working your TV to the limit, check out the new TCL 5 and 6 Series 4K smart TVs with Roku!
TCL makes their 4K HDR experience unique by including their AiPQ Engine, which uses AI to combine Smart HDR, Smart 4k, and Smart Contrast, so the infinite reruns of House Hunters International you’re watching in place of an actual vacation will really, really pop. Plus, these come with Roku already built-in, which means you get all the benefits of Roku without having to hook up any extra devices. That means you have Easy Voice Control so you can have Alexa or Google Home control your TV, which is especially handy if you have small children who like to hide remotes. You’ll also be able to use the Roku remote app on your phone, so you can cut said children off from more Paw Patrol at a moment’s notice.
The TCL 6-Series starts at $649.99 for 55″ up to $1,399.99 for a 75″ model, and features THX Certified Game Mode, making the gaming experience smoother and sharper.
The TCL 5-Series starts at $399 for 50″ and tops off at $1,099.99 for 75″, giving you a slightly more budget-friendly but still shockingly good viewing experience with QLED color and a bezel-less design!
