The firm TCL is deciding today to launch a new mid-range model with its 50T8S TW.
In its 49.5 inches model , this television offers a definition dedicated to the pictures treatment.
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.
In addition this TCL displays a Ultra HD 4K resolution.  This television is part of the main group of current TVs. It doesn’t completely stands out among its competitors with this choice of Ultra HD 4K.
Through our review today, you will understand why the TCL 50T8S TW is ranked among the best TVs of the moment.

TV design presentation TCL 50T8S TW

Sober but in line with current trends. TCL has asked its design office to make a product that tends towards the top range, but remains affordable.
A good overall score for this TV; it corresponds to design in the spirit of the times. A quality of materials and a visual aspect that does not make you insensitive.
In short, the TCL has really succeeded the design aspect of this TV, which does not go unnoticed no matter where it is installed. If when turned off it has such an effect, the sensations take on a whole new dimension when the screen of the TCL 50T8S TW is revealed.

The screen of the TCL 50T8S TW

The TCL has a correct and well-calibrated image quality, but you have to do with a limited native contrast that is suitable for daytime viewing; forget about home theater programs in the dark.
With this new model, TCL confirms one of its technological choices. It’s LED and that’s good because the image result is excellent. 
The TCL television set displays a Ultra HD 4K resolution. And with his 49.5 inches, he’s in a series of TVs that is among the most models in its category.Whatever the characteristics, it is still a beautiful screen. On this point, don’t worry.
TCL chooses a frequency of 50 Hz, the television’s fluidity is at the top of its range.
In addition, TCL has decided to use its mastery of advanced technology on this device, which allows it to benefit from a high quality Ultra HD 4K 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.

The sound of the TCL 50T8S TW

A brief listening allows us to see that it does not work miracles. The sound is far from exceptional. That’s enough for TV shows, but not for home theater showings.
The equipment consists of  two loudspeakers with 8 W at output.

The sound quality of this TV is average. Don’t push the volume too hard, you’d be disappointed.

The Intelligent aspect of the TCL 50T8S TW

For the software part, the 50T8S TW TCL has an operating system Android 9.0 Pie installed; it allows you to explore a whole universe of entertainment.
This TV offers you the choice of connectivity: Whether through its Wifi function, or through the local network with other devices or computer devices (fixed or mobile computers, NAS synology for example), your TV 50T8S TW is communicating.
