DESIGN & BUILT QUALITY:

Dimensions 38.2 x 22.3 x 3.3 inch with Stand
Style The TCL 4 Series has a very simple design that looks a bit dated. Its bezels are thicker than most premium TVs, but the TV still looks nice in most setups.
Back & Borders: Back Wall Mount VESA 300x300 & Borders 0.47
Thickness: Max Thickness 3.37
Build Quality: The build quality is okay. Most of the TV is made of plastic, but the back panel is made of cheap metal and it flexes easily, although this isn't likely to cause any issues. The plastic in the back and on the borders also feel flimsy,
Longevity: N/A
Stand: The stand is basic and doesn't support the screen all that well because there's wobble from front to back.
Included Components: Remote Control, Stand, Power Cord, Batteries

RATING SYSTEM:

TV Shows: 7.6
