Our conclusion on the TCL 32DS520

With the intention of making a difference this new 32DS520 TCL intends to make a difference. Well thought out and well finished. This mid-range is a wise choice.
With a smart TV technology, you benefit from a relevant choice for a top-of-the-range model. Really interesting.
A Direct LED panel animates this television. The rendering is good, even very good.
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 But this standard will certainly be outdated in a few years’ time.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.

In short, many positive points that make this TV a very good product. The following 3 points should be remembered:
the sound power, the display frequency, the depth of the colours.
