TCL LE46FHDP21TA Review: 46” LED LCD HDTV

Up for review: TCL LE46FHDP21TA LED LCD TV. Within a very short span of time, TCL has released a number of LCD and LED TV models. With the increase in the demand for sets made using the latest technology, the company intends to gain market share by making a set of affordable LED TV sets. These sets come with some of the basic features present in almost all the advanced TVs available in the market, but still some of the more advanced features present in most of the other models is not included in the product made by TCL. LE46FHDP21TA is a similar model which comes with a set of features which make the normal TV viewing experience good.

The set provides better quality video with features like 1080p resolution and 450 cd/m² brightness. You can enjoy the fast moving actions and sports scenes with the 120 Hz refresh rate offered by the TV. Your kids will love this set when they can enjoy their favorite action shows on a 46-inch sized screen. Further, the model comes with support for both horizontal and angular viewing from 178 degrees. So you will not have to fight with your kids to occupy the front seats which are always in great demand. You simply sit at a corner of the room and enjoy the shows without any disturbance. But you will be disappointed with the sound as the model does not support advanced digital sound technologies like Dolby and DTS. So when you can enjoy the improved video quality, you will feel let down with the audio sound provided by the TV. The sound quality seems like ordinary and almost dated in comparison to other LED sets available in the market.

The experience will be more enjoyable with the high resolution video and picture quality. But the ordinary standard of audio will still affect your listening of various music and similar content which are a part of your existing library.

The TV viewing experience is further enriched with features like channel labeling option and sleep timer. Using the channel labeling option you can easily keep track of the channels while watching a show even while surfing through the channels. You will be satisfied with most of the features and quality of contents provided by the model from TCL.
