It’s efficient and it will allow you with this 43EP660 to have a beautiful object in your living room.

TV screen presentation TCL 43EP660

The TCL has a correct and well-calibrated image quality, but you have to do with a limited native contrast that is suitable for daytime viewing; forget about home theater programs in the dark.
With this new 43EP660 TCL, the company makes an assumed technological choice. The quality of the LED gives an excellent rendering. 
With regard to the display, the company proposes a Ultra HD 4K resolution. This resolution is clearly better than what is generally done.
TCL presents this 43EP660 with a screen of 43 inches; this television is positioned in the range of models, in the average.At the same time, we are dealing with a nice display on the screen.
With a frequency of 60 Hz, this makes this TV set better positioned than its competitors. A perfectly synchronized image that will delight you for your home cinema.
Finally, TCL has chosen to put advanced technology on this TV, which makes it possible to have an Ultra HD 4K image quality .
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 43EP660

It is the custom to say that a good sound comes from a device with a lot of watts, however TCL has managed to combine average audio system power with very good sound quality.
The equipment consists of  two speakers and a power output of 8 W.

In short, the sound is enough to cover your everyday needs. The 43EP660 TCL is not designed for home cinema. That’s not what we are expecting.
