Our conclusion on the TCL 32DS520

In conclusion, the TCL 32DS520 is a mid-range television set of good quality. Average in most areas, it is nevertheless a wise choice for consumers who want to have a well-made product.
The least we can say is that this jewel incorporating smart TV technology offers you the TCL know-how . An element that is a very good option in the high-end segment.
This model uses Direct LED technology for its display. The result is good: the lighting is uniform and the contrast is pleasant.
This TV has the correct resolution, nothing more. Producing and marketing TVs today in HD is often sufficient and well suited for ‘basic’ uses. But this standard will certainly be outdated in a few years’ time. It is therefore a temporary and/or occasional choice. You’ve been warned.

In short, many positive points that make this TV a very good product. The following 3 points should be remembered:
the sound power, the display frequency, the depth of the colours.
