If you want a 55-inch TV and don’t want to pay $1,500 for an OLED, the TCL P series is the one to get. Simply put, no other TV offers this level of picture quality for this cheap a price. The TCL 55P607 costs hundreds less than the 55-inch Sony XBR-X900E, for example, but its picture is just as good – and in many ways, it’s better. It also earned a higher picture-quality score than the much more expensive Samsung Q7 QLED TV.

Local dimming TVs always perform better than TVs that don’t have this feature. Local dimming is the basis of high contrast, which in combination with HDR, represents the single best enhancement in television picture quality since high definition. It’s the main reason why OLED TVs look so good and this TV has it in spades.
