I feel people need to adjust expectations. This TCL TV is not going to perform like a LG C9, but it's pretty close. At its price it's very good.

If you are just looking for a TV. Don't think there is much different for a $1K tv vs $3k one.

Yes the price is really attractive and honestly the TV looks pretty good

Tried playing 4k video on my TCL 65C6US. It display HDR10 and Dolby logo on screen.

Has anyone bought and tried the C8? Price is somewhat higher than the P8S/P8M so i'm wondering if it's worth the premium.

Side note, where to find the 55" P8S currently? Online is OOS afaik.

TIA!

55" P8S should be still available in the Giant stores. I saw last Thu night at Tampines, still a lot.

Based on published specs C8 difference is with dual band wifi, onkyo speakers, HDR+, dolby vision and dolby atmos; P8S is 2.4Ghz single band (although both models have LAN), normal speakers, HDR and dolby audio

Thanks for the info! I also noticed that there are 2 variants to the P8 series - P8S and P8M. Any notable difference that I should know?

Tested both at Tampines Giant. When I tested some HDR video from my thumbdrive, the P8S has problem playing properly the 1st time (picture was laggy). I had to remove and plug in again to another USB port to play properly. The C8 played properly 1st time.

Also it seems the C8 has deeper black in the shop. And the specs says Quantum Dot for C8, so that helps me to decide on that model.

I'm expecting delivery of the 65C8 tomorrow. Will test out after.

I'll be reusing the same mount from my very old 32" (spoilt a long time ago) for the 65". The same mount is holding my 55" now too. VESA 400mm can still fits on the old bracket, and 65" is less than 20kg, so should hold properly.

Just got my tcl p8s 65. But notice the screen is not as clear when watching free to air channel like ch5. Try adjusting the brightness and contrast but somehow still not so clear. Any idea what I need to set to get a clearer image?

it also depends on the original source. It may not be native HD (SD upscale to HD) then on your set, another upscale to UHD. one have to be realistic.

Best is zero upscale (native 4K)

There are various upscale 'engine' quality and it comes with price.

just my 2 cents.

The quality of free to air low resolution shows on a 4K TV is really bad even for TV with a good upscaler
