Budget TV Update

The new rating is in and the TCL S Series tv is easily the best budget tv on the market right now. It’s only faults are that it doesn’t get bright and won’t play HDR content well but it’s superb otherwise, especially considering the price point of a 55″ tv 450 bucks! This is even more impressive because the next best tv this size is a couple hundred dollars more for similar performance. If you’re looking for a great cheaply priced set, look no further.
