TCL 6-Series QLED TV Unboxing and Basic Setup | 65R625

by birtanpublished on May 24, 2021

Good grief I swear these boxes are getting bigger every year even though the TVs are getting smaller and this is nothing wait till you see the TCL 8 series that thing is a monster dwarfs this sucker what's up everybody I'm Caleb Denison and you know exactly what this is because you've all been waiting for it just like I have it is the TCL six series cue LED TV it replaces one of the best TVs the TCL made last year it's supposed to be even better but there's no way we can find out until we unbox it and get looking so no delays let's do this important please read grab from the bottom don't smash

The screen do stuff smart and don't break the TV yeah sure sounds good let's take a look at this thing I'm excited because I anticipate based on the picture alone some pretty trim bezels even though it's not particularly thin and oh yeah that's definitely what we have here got some protective foam on the side to get rid of but already we're looking pretty nice look at this now this is what I like to see simple not a whole lot to it couple of real metal stands those are substantial and I like this weird more it kind of reminds me of old

Overhead projectors do you remember those kids of course you don't Roku remote no surprises there we've got the mute button volume control for this on the other side a little microphone button you guys know what that's like breakout cable battery these are VESA mount screws we've got the power cable here but where's my screws you know what I just realized you actually have to unscrew before you get screwing so here's what I'm talking about this is really unconventional the stands gonna come in from the side this decorative plate is going to go and get

Replaced by the same sort of piece on the on the leg but if you were wall mounting you'd want that there because it would look better so anyway first we start unscrewing okay and now we're just gonna pop this guy out then we'll pop this guy back in just like so and rescrew and we do the same thing on the other side looking pretty good so far I mean I'm like a kid when it comes to glossy things but at the end of the day it's just plastic it's a fingerprint

Magnet producer Dan doesn't much care for it but then again he's just a grump other than that it's what you expect from the back of the TV except for this toad in look on the stand I'm not sure how that's gonna look when we flip this guy around and that all of your ports are right here you get Ethernet for HDMI ports antenna USB optical there's even an audio out jack normally this is the spot where I would show you how to set up a Roku TV but it's so stinkin easy and I've done it so many times before felt like it's not really worth it this time suffice it to

Say that you follow the on-screen prompts grab your phone your tablet your PC log into your Roku account if you don't have one get one and then tell it a bunch of information about what apps you want you can even sign in to Netflix and Hulu and Amazon and other services from the app so that by the time it is done with this crazy update and this takes a while you're just gonna have to sit through it it'll have all your apps where you want them and already signed you in so that you don't have to hunt and peck your passwords and usernames in with a remote you can actually use the

Keyboard on your phone so that's pretty slick once that's done we get to watch the TV alright so once your TV set up and we're actually watching TV straight away you're gonna want to go into the picture settings and it doesn't matter whether you're on your cable input or blu-ray input or here Netflix or whatever streaming app just get into it and then press the star key you're gonna have to do this for all your different inputs right but go in and change the picture mode to movie it comes in low power and it looks really terrible super bright low power mode does not look at

It all get it over to movie in my opinion that's the preferred picture preset you can check the others out and see what you like but movies gonna have the warmest look to it which again I prefer and then you can go into advanced picture settings and take a few other boxes if you want to local contrast either at medium or high that's the effectiveness of the backlight system but I'm gonna leave the backlight brightness contrast sharpness color tint all as the default they're color temperature warm action smoothing is turned off by nature of the mode but you

Also want to make sure that LD motion LED motion clarity is turned off because that soap-opera effect in a setting right there okay so that's where we're gonna start off with and then we'll tweak things as we go into our full review but I just wanted to point that out out of the box it is not in a great picture mode and you're gonna want to adjust it again for each setting then once you want to check out something that looks really good try this Dolby there's a Dolby content channel available on here and it's going to leave Netflix yes that's

Fine it's gonna pop up with our good friend Thomas Dolby as the number one hit grab the Dolby Act access channel and and go do it there's some content here in Dolby vision and dolby atmos that you can check out right away to get a feel for what the TV can do now normally I don't do this when we're doing an unboxing and a full set up but something's not right here I don't know like the last time I saw a TCL 6 series I was like dang for the money I'm not getting that right now there's a lot for me yet to do on this TV so my decision is far from made but

If ever there was a teaser for the full picture quality review video this is it I'm really hoping this goes in good directions for me as we progress with it folks thanks so much for watching what do you think of the TV so far leave me a comment down below and also you're still excited to see it against the Vizio P series quantum because I am here's a couple more videos we think you might like like subscribe hit that notification bell and as always visit Digital Trends calm for the latest tech news and reviews
