Our review


The TCL 65EP680 - 65 inch (165 cm) version of the TCL 55EP680 that we tested - is a good Ultra HD television which delivers a very well calibrated image in SDR and HDR, as well as a very good native contrast allowing to display fairly deep blacks. It also stands out for its low display delay and reduced consumption. However, like all LCD TVs in this price range, its limited brightness peak has little interest in HDR and the afterglow results in a blurring effect, especially visible in games. It is a serious competitor for the Samsung UE65RU7475. It's up to you to see if you prefer the versatility of the TCL's Android TV at the cost of a few slowness to the fluidity of the Samsung Tizen system, but with a slightly more perfectable calibration.
