When I got my Veon, the sound was initially OK because it was only voice on YouTube videos. As soon as I watched a movie or music video then I noticed how terrible it was. The sound was terrible even accounting for the lack of useful bass from the small speakers.

then the Veon has better sound than my TCL (note I'm not saying all models are like that) ... so just check the sound before you buy the TCL

I've mentioned the 42in Veon my parents got before. Out of the box, the overscan, brightness, contrast, enhancements and whack colour calibration made for an atrocious image. Running at 1:1 and using hardware calibration (it has decent enough individual RGB gain controls) pulled everything into line fine. Used as a PC monitor and with a Blu-ray drive. Never intended to use the speakers, and they are awful, but spending the difference on standalone audio hardware gets you much better performance than expecting it from what you can cram into a TV's form factor.

With how cheap TVs are becoming, it will be reasonable to use them as just wall coverings soon.

Yeah, the cost of just getting a large print, let alone framing it vs all the tech in a TV for the price of the OP's example is a pretty amazing contrast. The age of mass manufacture and cheap energy leads to amazing things being taken for granted.
