This Excellent 2018 TCL 4K HDR Starter TV Is Selling At almost 40% Off Right Now
Stephan Jukic – November 20, 2018
TCL’s S517 4K UHD HDR TV isn’t the brands best performing model of 2018 and it’s certainly no ultra-premium 4K UHD TV. But what it does offer delivers more than enough performance for one hell of a good starter 4K TV if you’re on a budget and for one damn fine studio/bedroom television for gaming and just lazing out on Netflix. Best of all , the 2018 S-Series is now on sale from Amazon for some of the best value per dollar spent you can find if you’re looking for something like this.
For starters, this model offers dull HDR support, not just for one HDR standard (HDR10, found in the majority of streaming high dynamic range movies) but also for the much more versatile and fine-tuned Dolby Vision format. This support is obviously coupled with some really great wide color vibrancy in the display and excellent contrast ratios. The S517 also comes with very, very good gaming connectivity. In fact, we’d argue that it’s one of the more outstanding console gaming-friendly 4K TVs out there and especially so at its current price.
On an added note -and we really like this about the TCL 4K TVs- the S-Series comes with the fantastic Roku TV smart platform for streaming media of all types. We consider Roku TV to be one of the best smart TV OS systems in existence today and have always highly recommended Roku streamers in our Devices section of 4K.com because of this. Not only does it come with all the usual top streaming 4K and HDR media apps like Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hulu, it also offers up several thousand other apps of all kinds right out of the box, for highly specialized niche entertainment channels, music and just about anything anyone could want for a weekend at home.
All of this is what you get with the TCL S-Series 4K HDR TVs and right now, for all three sizes available at a discount of this TV, you can get these at one seriously rock bottom price thanks to Amazon’s pre-Black Friday discount on this model. Like we said, in our honest analysis, the value you’ll get from this budget 4K television for each dollar you spend on it at the price it’s going for now is extremely high. It’s worth considering if you want to get a new and good TV that offers 4K and high dynamic range without breaking the bank.
