Take Home One Of TCL’s 4K HDR TVs For Less Than $300 With This Amazon Deal
Stephan Jukic – November 19, 2018
TCL has made a big space for itself on the North American 4K TV market with the release of some very high quality 4K TVs at remarkably low normal retail prices. Most importantly though, the quality part is what counts with these televisions- they’ve shown themselves to be genuinely good even while they cost much less than most rival models from other major brands.
Now, in the last months of 2018, right before the giant Black Friday and Cyber Week shopping days kick off, some of TCL’s 2017 4K HDR television models are getting discounts so good that we just can’t see these prices getting lowered any further even on Black Friday itself. In other words, now is a great moment to buy them before any possible stock shortages end up happening.
The model we’re discussing here in particular is TCL’s mid-range S-Series 4K HDR LCD TV, also known as the S405. Right now it’s absolutely priced to sell and it offers some impressively robust specs for what you’d pay for it.
The S-Series is the second-tier TV from TCL’s 2017 lineup, right after the better known P-Series premium models, which we reviewed and really liked for last year. Unlike its premium cousin, the S-Series doesn’t offer the same sheer full-array LED backlighting or local dimming capabilities and it lacks some of the 6-Series TV’s very high display brightness, but the S-Series S405 still holds its own nicely, being a 4K HDR TV with full support for both HDR10 and Dolby Vision high dynamic range content formats, with plenty of superb color vibrancy. The S-Series is also one particularly excellent television for 4K and HDR console gaming simply because it offers some of the lowest input lag we’ve ever seen in a UHD TV from any brand, along with console gaming connectivity support for multiple color and resolution formats.
It’s really worth keeping in mind here that right now, the 49 inch edition is selling for just $279.99, while the 55 inch model is on offer for a ridiculously low price of $349.99. Again, bear in mind that these are prices for a fully HDR-capable 4K TV from one of the major brands on the market. Nobody else has yet beaten the value you’ll get at these prices for a television like this.
