And you can thank europe for the absurd turn on times for TV's with their mandated power usage when in standby crap. Cant even use enough power to keep an ethernet link up so the only way to wake TVs is to use IR in most cases.


The slowness of my samsung to get into the youtube app is what made me just ignore it and use a android box instead on it. Can leave those on all the time so no slowness to get into it once turning the screen on.

4. how's the sound?



That shouldn't even be a question!




I've had low to mid to plasma-range TVs for the last 8 years (from LG, Samsung, Sony, Panasonic) and NONE have EVER been worth turning the sound up on.


Current Sony KD-X8500C (4K tv) included.




Would maybe try the "speaker" on the Sony A1 OLED, but that's because the panel is a speaker.




Just me tongue-out 




TCL must be special!







It's as though TV manufacturers cripple the sound just so you have to pay extra and buy a sound bar. What a brilliant idea!







Yeah sound really good, I will be looking at getting a soundbar though, or will use my Logitech Z906 speakers and go get a optical audio cable not sure as of yet.
