EISA PREMIUM LCD TV 2021-2022 TCL 65C825

By replacing a conventional LCD backlight with a multi-zone dimming array comprising thousands of mini LEDs, TCL’s flagship 65C825 4K TV ushers in a picture performance that belies its tempting price tag. Black levels and shadow detail are excellent, as is the precision of its HDR playback – Dolby Vision IQ and HDR10+ are both handled, while HDR10 is fine-tuned by Dynamic Tone Mapping. Beyond its cinematic visuals, this mini LED TV ticks plenty of other boxes, from a sound system designed in collaboration with Onkyo that provides largescale, full-range audio, to its Android smart platform and compatibility with next-generation games consoles. Approached from any angle, the 65C825 is a TV triumph.
