32S305 from TCL : Test and analysis

TCL 32S305 : the new HD

The firm TCL is deciding today to launch a new mid-range model with its 32S305.
Let’s have a look at the size. It’s a 32 inches.
Small but tough ; hopefully seeing its size , it will perhaps follow you (house move or holidays…). Good opportunities to test its reliability in the long run.
Beside, this television is equipped with a HD resolution.  Even if it is in a mid-range position, it offers interesting specifications, partly justifying its price.
Should we let ourselves be convinced by this 32S305 TCL ? All answer elements just after.

32S305 from TCL – Design

The TCL 32S305 with its simple design is an interesting alternative for anyone who wants an elegant television set in the mid-range segment.
No revolution concerning the aesthetics of this 32S305. We are in line with market standards. At least we know what we’re buying: a television set.
A product that is correct in view of its price. A sleek but effective design. It has the potential to compete with other TV sets on the market.
This new TCL 32S305 is simply flat.
With its screen surface of 32 inches, As far as the base is concerned, there are also things to say. Indeed it has a double base, in which we have a division where each part of the base has its place. With this, the TV is exactly the same on both sides, thus creating a very symmetrical and stylish TV that can be enjoyed in any room.
The charm of the 32S305 is undoubtedly its technology Slim design.
A mid-range television set that relies heavily on its design and the quality of its materials; arguments that TCL has been promoting for some time now on these products. All this for a price that stays contained.

TV screen presentation TCL 32S305

The display of this 32S305 is handled with care. This will allow connoisseurs to enjoy a quality rendering in home theater mode. The colours are faithful and deep black.
TCL remains anchored in its technological choices and decides to equip its new television set with it. The use of LEDs provides an excellent image. 
The TCL 32S305 is available in the HD resolution. In addition, with a screen of 32 inches, the 32S305 belongs to the series of small models in its range.Whatever the characteristics, it is still a beautiful screen. On this point, don’t worry.
TCL chooses a frequency of 60 Hz, we’re looking at a high-end TV. Perfect image and exceptional synchronization in game or movie mode.
In addition, TCL has decided to use its mastery of advanced technology on this device, which allows it to benefit from a high quality HD image resolution.
My opinion to conclude on the display part. It’s in the range, without flourish or excess. An additional choice in the mid-range.

TV sound presentation TCL 32S305

The sound quality is correct but nothing more. The typical low-medium and mid-range sounds are far from what the competition offers. The sound of the 32S305 still has the advantage of not being saturated. In any case, the installation as presented ex-factory is just sufficient for this television set
For the sound part, the television set is equipped with two speakers with 4 W at output.

In conclusion, the sound of this TV will give you the majority of the sound spectrum. It’s average, but not of poor quality.

The Intelligent aspect of the TCL 32S305

It has almost become a habit for TCL, this 32S305 has its operating system Roku TV. You have the opportunity to explore the world of entertainment.
This TV’s Internet access is possible either via Wi-Fi or via a LAN local network and you have the possibility to download a wide variety of applications and movies.

The connection system of the TCL 32S305

This television TCL 32S305 offers a rather classical connectivity : mixed inputs HDMI, the ports as well as the audio are available on this model.
You will have few choices regarding connections. This TV has less than most of its competitors.

It is with 6 possible connections that this 32S305 is presented. Not all of your devices will be able to be connected. A difficult choice is on the way.

In clear, the connections available on this model are:
1 USB port, 3 HDMI ports, 1 audio output, 1 component plug (Video)

32S305 from TCL – The conclusion

The overall feeling about the product is satisfactory, it is not the best on the market, but it still allows to have an efficient television set.
With a smart TV technology, you benefit from a relevant choice for a top-of-the-range model. Really interesting.
With its Direct LED panel, this TV is doing better than average. The lighting is uniform.
This TV has the correct resolution, nothing more. Producing and marketing TVs today in HD is often sufficient and well suited for ‘basic’ uses. But this standard will certainly be outdated in a few years’ time. It is therefore a temporary and/or occasional choice. You’ve been warned.

From this new TCL we can retain 3 positive points:
the sound power, the display frequency, the screen size.
