1 out of 5 eggsFlashing Screen

Pros: Great price, good picture.

Cons: Broke in less than a 6 months.

Other Thoughts: Screen started flashing 3 months after buying and eventually turned off. No picture. I unplugged it and changed outlets, but it still won't turn on. I can see the back light from behind the TV, but in front it just looks black. Thank goodness I got the 1 year warranty. Now I get my $250 back, but only in newegg store credit and when there are no good TVs for less than $300.

2 out of 5 eggsLuck of the Draw?

Pros: Great tv at a low price, I was hesitant to buy a refurbished one, but for the most part I was satisfied.

Cons: Everything appeared ok and the tv looks good plugged in, but one of the mounting nuts on the back of the set (for wall mounting) is just missing, there is just a hole in the plastic and no mounting nut under it.

I have mounted the TV with just the three nuts and hope for the best.

I won't purchase a refurbished item from NewEgg again.

Other Thoughts: Buyer beware with a refurbished item.

4 out of 5 eggsLow price with good quality

Pros: - Affordable
- Very bright
- Accurate colors
- No screen tearing or image burning

Cons: the TV developed a line across the screen in the middle with a couple months of use.

Other Thoughts: This is a great TV for the price, 40 inch TV's are great since the price goes up significantly for 40 inch + TV;s and doesn't make sense for how much more you get.
I cant say anything bad about the tv, its low cost, with really great colors and brightness, black is very black, and white is very white.

4 out of 5 eggsFlat Panel TV

Pros: Good Quality picture, good TV for the cost

Cons: Had to buy external Antenna to receive over the Air HD channels, other TVs receive over the air channels fine, this one requires an external antenna. Cable TV connections.

5 out of 5 eggsLight and Small Bezel

Pros: Very light, thought the box was empty or only had wiring inside. Could be just because I rock a kicking pair of guns, but still abnormally light. The bezel was a definate shock, I would consider going over board and hooking 3 of these mama-jama's up with a triple-head-2-go and surround game like never before. TV turns off when input is off for a while, thanks for that. Also auto finds the input, nice...

Cons: Doesn't turn on when input becomes available, not sure if there is a setting for that, kinda lazy... so in case its a setting, I didn't knock an Egg. Also the stand has NO adjustment, but thats common with TV's, sadly I'm using it as a monitor so... But at least the angle viewing dim is not bad at all or is so little I can't tell.

Other Thoughts: Newegg shipped fast as usual.

Also bought this refurbished and as I tell everyone 'Don't fear refurbished'. Something refurbished isn't' damaged, its actually tested. The guarantee isn't any less so why worry? Just know that someone not only fixed it back to factory, but they have their name on it now. So if it gets shipped broken, someone gets in trouble.

4 out of 5 eggsTook the leap with little regrets

Pros: - 3 HDMI inputs
- true 1080p
- "refurb" like an Apple product (looks brand new)
- twin speakers are LOUD and clear
- picture is very clean

Cons: - 60Hz which is fine for movies and regular viewing
- 90 day warranty is paltry
- picture is washed out on default Energy Star setting, just tweak it
- dynamic brightness needs a bit of work (or just turn it off)

Other Thoughts: Newegg's Black Friday special brought me to purchasing this 40" HDTV from a manufacturer where I've read overall positive reviews. I had also purchased a speaker bar for it because my LG 47" HDTV had rather pathetic sound from its internal speakers. Like I said in the Pros, the built-in speakers are loud and clear (no bass but that's not an issue).

Once you get the colors dialed in (I selected Natural), the HDTV looks pretty good. Otherwise, it looks oversaturated (color-bleed). My LG HDTV comes with a calibration mechanism that allows an easy method of dialing in the picture. TCL would be wise to implement a similar feature.

The 90 day warranty gives me pause but the availability of a 2 year extended warranty (which I purchased) gives me peace of mind. The warranty (a year longer than most new HDTVs) plus the price of the TV still ended up to be a good deal.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat bargain! Terrific TV!

Pros: Very light! Tons of features for lass than $250! It arrived yesterday in great shape. The set looks brand new and I can't find any visible defects in it. Picture quality is very good exceeded only by my 50" 120Hz big screen in my family room that cost much more.

Cons: None so far. Great value for the money!

Other Thoughts: I had ordered another TV with a competitor and they lost my item and wound up cancelling the order and issuing me a full refund. They did me a great favor as this TV is awesome. Using it in my master bedroom and so far I could not be happier.
