A TCL 55 Inch 4K HDR Roku TV With Dolby Vision For $200 Off Right Now
Stephan Jukic – January 7, 2018
TCL Unveiled their newest model, the Roku C807 55 inch 4K HDR Roku TV this past summer at a starting price tag of $899 and even at that cost it offered some very decent overall value. Now however, this high dynamic range TV with the excellent smart content platform of Roku TV baked right into it is selling on Amazon for a much better discount price of just $699.99, which amounts to a $200 savings. This makes the C807 one hell of a better deal than before and an excellent piece of home entertainment value per dollar spent.
No, the C807 isn’t quite as good as TCL’s truly fantastic P-Series HDR television, which we reviewed here earlier, mainly because it lacks the local dimming and full-array LED backlighting of the other model, but we can safely and sincerely say that, this is a full blown HDR TV in terms of color support and compatibility with HDR10 and Dolby Vision HDR content sources. It also offers an excellent contrast ratio with some very decent brightness and black levels, both of which are crucial in combination with high color vibrancy for your favorite high dynamic range movies, shows and other programs along with ordinary content that you might view from the C807’s huge selection of streaming media apps inside its Roku TV smart platform. We should also not that the Roku TV system in the C807 is one of our favorites of 2017 and early 2018 so far in any streaming device that uses it, as we explained in our guide to streaming devices, here
In any case, this deal is still on and this TV is not only a solid piece of mid-range 4K TV technology, it’s also a great looking television, with a sleek design and one very light, thin display panel with nearly bezel-free edges.
Here are some more features from the Amazon page itself:
- Dimensions (W x H x D): TV without stand: 48.5″ x 29.6″ x 2.3″, TV with stand: 48.5″ x 31.2″ x 9.6″
- Roku TV smart functionality offers access to over 4,000 streaming channels featuring more than 450,000 movies and TV episodes
- Pairs 4K Ultra HD picture clarity with the contrast, color, and detail of Dolby Vision HDR (High Dynamic Range) for the most lifelike picture
- Edge LED backlighting with Dynamic Contrast produces deep blacks and excellent picture quality
- 120Hz refresh rate allows fast moving action scenes to be seen with virtually no motion blur
- Inputs: 3 HDMI 2.0 with HDCP 2.2 (one with HDMI ARC), 1 USB (media player), RF, Composite, Headphone Jack, Optical Audio Out, Ethernet
We don’t think the C807 will stun anyone who owns something truly premium and extremely expensive like a Samsung QLED TV, or an LG OLED HDR television, but it still does impress for its price and we can honestly recommend this as a high value 4K TV offer at this price point, especially if you’re looking for HDR technology and solid specs while on a budget.
