This TV is the smaller version of the TCL 55S405 posted several times over the last couple months.
We own that model, an amazing value for the price.
Brights are brighter, and blacks are almost entirely black.
No gray tint when the TV is powered on, like most 1080p TVs have.
Even if you have no 4K (2160p) content, the HDR will produce a sharper image than a 1080p TV.
Here's an HDR explanation.
Built-in Roku with 4K support, lots of Roku apps available directly on the TV.
Also, the TV can be controlled entirely through the Roku app, including power on/off and TV settings.
Very thin design, with sleek edges.
Bad things about the TV:
The plastic edges feel flimsy.
Feels like the TV could break if bent during unboxing or moving.
So, keep the original box and packaging if you plan on moving sometime.
The HDR will not bad as good as $600+ TVs, but it's still quite impressive and is one of the only 55-inch TVs in the sub-$400 price range with HDR.
Roku built-in to the TV (full 4K and HDR support).
Run Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, HBO, Vudu, and any Roku app directly on your TV.
With HDR, brights look brighter and darks look darker for a more realistic look.
This video demonstrates the upgrade from 1080p to 4K, with HDR being the real difference maker.
