TCL 50S425 : a television of 50 inches

What is the new TCL 50S425 worth ?

Today we are going to analyse the TCL 50S425, a mid-range television from TCL. An review to check the capacities of this model.
A quick glimpse at the specification sheet : 50 inches.
Its size is quite a good representation of the average screen : we are face to a standard screen.
In addition this TCL displays a Ultra HD 4K resolution.  It could be said that this model gathers all the expected characteristics. Whether we consider its aesthetics or its size, the engineers of TCL have developed a television admittedly a middle-range one, but a quality one anyway.
Although placed in the middle of the range, the manufacturer has tried to offer the viewer an image quality that allows an immersion.
We will see in detail if their objective is reached.

50S425 from TCL – Design

Sober but in line with current trends. TCL has asked its design office to make a product that tends towards the top range, but remains affordable.
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 50S425 adopts a standard shape with a flat screen.
With its glass surface of 50 inches, Another thing we can highlight in the design of this TV is the design of its support. Equipped with a double base, TCL has chosen security. The TV holds well, nothing moves thanks to this system. And whatever the price of the 50S425, we prefer this kind of solution that guarantees that the television will not fall out of its place.
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!

The designers of TCL have made this new TV set 50S425. A new mid-range model with the characteristics of its time, a well calibrated image, and a high-performance processing.
With this new 50S425 TCL, the company makes an assumed technological choice. The quality of the LED gives an excellent rendering. 
The TCL 50S425 is available in the Ultra HD 4K resolution. In addition, with a screen of 50 inches, the 50S425 belongs to the series of standard models in its range.Whatever the characteristics, it is still a beautiful screen. On this point, don’t worry.
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.

50S425 from TCL – The sound

The sound quality is correct but nothing more. The typical low-medium and mid-range sounds are far from what the competition offers. The sound of the 50S425 still has the advantage of not being saturated. In any case, the installation as presented ex-factory is just sufficient for this television set
For the sound part, the television set is equipped with two baffles and a power output of 8 W.

The sound quality of this TV is average. Don’t push the volume too hard, you’d be disappointed.
