TCL 65EP663 : the new Ultra HD 4K

Recently TCL has released information about its new model of television . It is the 65EP663.
Classified in the mid-range category. we thought we had to have a closer look at it in order to check whether the constructor had done a good job or not.
First, the size : 65 inches on this device.
We are dealing with a rather large model.
Regarding technology, we are facing a model with a Ultra HD 4K resolution.  Even if it is in a mid-range position, it offers interesting specifications, partly justifying its price.
Why can we consider this 65EP663 as convincing in spite of its mid-range position ? This is what we are going to discover in this article.

TV design presentation TCL 65EP663

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.
The design of the TCL 65EP663 has nothing to do with that of the other models in the TCL EP66 series.
The shapes are balanced and the overall rendering is beautiful to look at. A successful mid-range model.
The 65EP663 adopts a standard shape with a flat screen.
With a size of 65 inches, Another thing we can highlight in the design of this TV is the design of its support. 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.This TV could simply be one of the best in terms of design for mid-range. It has nothing to envy from its competitors. Even when it’s off, you won’t get tired of looking at it; only happiness!

The screen of the TCL 65EP663

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. The use of LEDs provides an excellent image. 
This model has a Ultra HD 4K display. TCL presents this 65EP663 with a screen of 65 inches; this television is among the greatest. Beyond its size, we are still in front of a beautiful quality screen.
With a frequency of 60 Hz, we’re looking at a high-end TV. Perfect image and exceptional synchronization in game or movie mode.
Even better, thanks to its advanced technology, the screen of this television provides a Ultra HD 4K quality 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.
