    Reviewers from rtings have found the following***:
    The TCL 5 Series is a good TV for most uses. It's great for gaming because it has VRR support, a quick response time, and low input lag for responsive gaming. It has a VA panel with a high native contrast ratio for deep blacks and excellent black uniformity. The TCL S546 is very good for watching movies in dark rooms.
