TV design presentation TCL 43S425

The TCL 43S425 appears as a real masterstroke of the brand regarding both its interior and exterior design.
Nothing has changed in the design of this new model. TCL continues to ride the wave of its design to which we are now accustomed.
The shapes are balanced and the overall rendering is beautiful to look at. A successful mid-range model.
This TCL 43S425 is quite standard, flat.
With an interesting size of 43 inches, it has a typical piano black color.
Another thing we can highlight in the design of this TV is the design of its support. Indeed it has a double base, in which we have a division where each part of the base has its place. With this, the TV is exactly the same on both sides, thus creating a very symmetrical and stylish TV that can be enjoyed in any room.
A noteworthy innovation for this model is the use of the Slim design technology.
This TV could simply be one of the best in terms of design for mid-range. It has nothing to envy from its competitors. Even when it’s off, you won’t get tired of looking at it; only happiness!

And with his 43 inches, he’s in a series of TVs that is among the most models in its category.In the end, it is interesting to note that beyond the size, the screen is well made. A point to add when choosing between this model and other competitors.
By providing it with a frequency of 60 Hz, this TV has a better rendering compared to its competitors, in the same category.
Note that with advanced technology, this TV gives you a Ultra HD 4K quality picture .
My opinion to conclude on the display part. It’s in the range, without flourish or excess. An additional choice in the mid-range.

The sound of the TCL 43S425

The TCL 43S425 is not satisfied with displaying stunning image quality. Indeed, it also pleasantly surprised us with its well-made audio performance.
In terms of sound equipment, the TV is equipped with two speakers with 8 W at output.

In short, the sound is enough to cover your everyday needs. The 43S425 TCL is not designed for home cinema. That’s not what we are expecting.
