TCL has unveiled its 6-series lineup of 4K TVs with some impressive tech at relatively low prices. To start with, the sets all use TCL’s QLED Mini-LED tech with up to 240 local dimming zones. That delivers higher brightness than OLED, but with better contrast control than regular QLED TVs. Together with Dolby Vision (along with HDR10 and HLG), that means you’ll see movies with extra pop and color but fewer weird lighting artifacts.

The 6-series TVs are also the first with THX’s Certified Gaming Mode. That feature guarantees high fidelity for color, tone and images, along with judder and smear reduction, and quick latency between light and dark transitions. THX and TCL also collaborated to tune the TVs’ gaming modes for maximum saturation, brightness and vibrancy. They also offer variable refresh rates (up to 120Hz) and auto game mode settings, meaning they should work well with the Xbox Series X and Playstation 5 consoles coming later in 2020.

Best of all, the prices are reasonable, considering that Mini-LED tech is still pretty bleeding edge. The 2020 6-series starts at $649 for the 55-inch model, while the 65-inch and 75-inch TVs cost $899 and $1,399, respectively.

TCL also unveiled the 5-series TVs with even lower prices. You still get QLED tech, albeit with fewer local dimming zones (up to 80), along with Dolby Vision and TCL’s bezel-free design. However, the 50-inch model starts at just $400. The company is also selling 55-, 65- and 75-inch models with for $450, $630 and $1,100 each, respectively.
