VA Direct LED Panel with QLED Technology
The 65C735 TV from TCL has one of its strong points on the screen. Its VA Direct LED panel has as its main advantage a remarkable improvement in contrast, which brings it close to the performance of an OLED TV in the treatment of blacks. Details in the shadows are perceived surprisingly, and when watching movies, the viewer enjoys an image very close to the filmmaker’s idea. The use of these VA panels instead of IPS panels by TCL makes the Chinese brand an alternative to take into account if you are a movie or sports lover. Of course, you should keep in mind that VA panels have a smaller viewing angle than IPS, although it is usual to see the TV from the front (if for example, you are meeting with friends to play a few games if one is very close to a corner you can see it worse).
This model achieves 93% of the DCI P3 color spectrum, which means that it displays more than a billion colors and tones, providing a level of detail and depth quite accurate, another of the virtues of Direct LED panels, which are also characterized by the energy consumption does not soar. The 65C735 incorporates the Calman color calibration system, one of the most widely used by professionals in the Hollywood film industry.
Another highlight of this panel is the 144Hz refresh rate. Thanks to this, smoother moving images are achieved. This function is very oriented to the use of this TV with last-generation video games since the rate adapts to what the game demands and avoids the problems of jerks in titles that have a lot of action or movement, such as racing games or shooters.
The TCL 65C735 TV supports all video formats: HDR10, HDR10+, Dolby Vision, and Dolby Vision I This model automatically adapts to the best format on any type of platform: Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV+, etc. It also features a high level of compatibility with all types of video, audio, and image formats.

Onkyo 2.0 Sound System and Google TV Built In
The 65C735 model comes equipped with an Onkyo 2.0 speaker system, which provides the user with a Dolby Atmos quality sound experience. This system creates an immersive audio experience, which creates the sensation that the objects in the picture are moving through the physical space. Of course, don’t expect wonders either. If we are looking for an immersive experience, it is recommended that we get a soundbar to complement this TV like the TCL X937U.
In addition to offering picture and sound quality, TCL also incorporates Google TV in this TV. Through the collection of data on the use of different platforms, Google TV shows the user on the main screen the content it considers most interesting for the user, who gains in comfort by having much closer to their favorite movies, series, or games, in addition to having at their disposal the Google Assistant.
A TV Suitable for Gamers
Gaming is another facet that TCL has not wanted to neglect in the 65C735, which brings together several of the features most demanded by video game lovers. With its HDMI 2.1 ports, video games can be played at higher frame rates (up to 144 frames per second in 4K). These ports are compatible with the latest generation consoles, good news for owners of a PlayStation 5 or Xbox X Series.
In addition, this model features Game Master PRO mode, which includes some crucial features to enjoy games, such as ALLM (automatic low latency mode) or VRR (variable refresh rate). The VRR is 144 Hz, the highest level that TVs reach today, making it ideal for enjoying any video game smoothly without losing quality in the most action-packed scenes.
The TCL Game Bar and the AMD FreeSync Premium standard are other dedicated gaming features included in the TCL 65C735 that make it a highly valued choice for gamers.
Borderless Design with Central Stand
The TCL 65C735 also pays attention to design, with a TV in which the bezels are virtually unnoticeable and feature a metallic finish that gives it a distinguished touch. This model incorporates a central stand that allows it to be installed anywhere in the room.
All these factors, together with an internal memory of 32 GB higher than that of its competitors, make the TCL 65C735 TV a very interesting option for various user profiles. This model is available in stores for €900.
