Can anybody help to advise TCL 55" P8M selling at Giant at $599 is IPS panel or what kind of panel?

Thank you!

Panel information is in there under specifications. The brightness is only 270nits...

@Vulpix, the link you sent is interesting as its the first time it shows even the Panel manufacturer

C8: AUO (I think it's a TCL and AUO tie-up, may very well be in-house)
P8S: Samsung (we can seek out which Samsung has the same display output?)


But I went to IMM Giant to see, the P8S i really think it suffered from poor settings, do have a chance to go down see see. The C8 really looked slightly more vibrant. I'm wondering is it micro-dimming is turned off from the P8S....
Electric store usually set tv colour to over saturated and brightness to max?

I thought quantum dot is just a buzzword? But yeah I missed out the nits rating, C8 is better than P8. Just be aware of the difference between ELED and DLED. The C8 might not have very even lighting since it's ELED.

Quantum dot is a proven technology...though not nearly quite as good as OLED.

ELED is a compromise for the thin sleek panel.

Do post your results when you test out the C8.

Need so much brightness for what.. It is going to be indoor anyway. Even more if you put it inside your bedroom..

Usually brighter means more accurate colours. That's why HDR10 requires a certain level of brightness.

Anyone has the same problem as me? TCL 55p8m cannot detect 5ghz Wifi, can only use 2.4ghz which can be laggy.

Please share your solution if any. thanks in advance

P8M series does not support 5GHz wifi if you were to refer to the specs.

Oh.. *disappointed*
2.4 ghz can be laggy at times even though connection is good..
Thanks for clarifying.

I think TCL is using VA panel if not wrong.
