Received my 55P8M 2 days ago. Tweaked with these settings:
Colour temp: Warm
Tint 47
Bright: 49
Contrast: 77
Colour Sat: 49
Black Level: 47
Gamma: 0

CLARITY (menu)
Sharpness; 50
Digital Noise Reduction OFF
Noise Reduction OFF

Motion: LED motion clear: Off
Micro dimming, Dynamic contrast, dynamic backlight all set to OFF


It was stunning. Initially it works with my google home for voice commands like turning tv off/on, search youtube etc(somehow netflix cant work via voice command idk why), but after i updated the all the apps at playstore, it stopped working. Like Google Home cant detect my TV, even though casting from my phone manually onto the TV still works.
I can use the remote control (Google Assistant voice command) to search for movies in Netflix app. It understand when I speak Chinese words too.

On my phone Google home app just link to Netflix account.

I say it's very good PQ.
The best way is you go to Giant look at their 4k demo video or bring ur own videos and test on all the brands you like for accurate comparison.

Yes. Giant Tampines, IMM and sembawang all display the TCL you can play ur own 4K videos there. If have promotor ask him to try ur videos. If don't promotor you self service lah or ask Giant staff to pass you the remote control.

Alphavisions supply TCL to Giant. You can call them too.

Anyone has problem with TCL TV digital output? I connected the cable to sound system and set TV sound setting to PCM, it works for day 1, from day 2 onwards I can't get sound thru the sound system, cable is new and looks ok as I can see red light after connected to the TV, what could be the problem? I am using LG BlueRay payer with 5.1. Thanks
