ABOUT THIS TV

TCL 85C735 400x400 Image TCL 85C735

The 85C735 is a 85 inch 4K TV from TCL, launched in the year 2022. It features a 10-bit VA panel. It can achieve a max resolution of 3840 x 2160 @ 144 Hz with a pixel density of 52 ppi.

Picture Quality

After screen size and resolution, the next important specification of a display that will impact your viewing experience is Color Gamut.

TCL has not provided a color gamut rating for this TV. But don't worry, we have other means to guess that.

Now, since the TV features a 85 inch screen, it won't come with a cheap panel, so here we can assume its equivalent sRGB coverage to be 90-100% or above. Undoubtedly The color quality on this TV should be Lifelike! Meaning it is capable of producing accurate colors out of the box.

What Color Gamut means ?

Color gamut specification of a TV is the measurement of the range of colors that it can produce.

In other words, it determines the ability of a TV to produce accurate colors. A panel with low color gamut coverage will miss out on some colors (such as deep red), the result would be a "washed out" picture quality.

Different manufacturers use different measurement standards to specify color gamut. Viz — sRGB (standard RGB), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 to name a few.

But don't worry, below is a chart that will help you choosing a TV with good color accuracy.

Color Gamut Chart

Other than color accuracy, you should look at the static contrast specification as it impacts the picture quality the same way.

What is Static Contrast ratio ?

A TV with low static contrast ratio will not produce deep blacks and possibly can bleed backlight as shown in the images below:

Backlight bleed exampleThe image is an example of another display, it is not this one

The static contrast ratio of above TV is 800:1. So make sure you get a TV with a static contrast of >= 1000:1. More is better.

Also note, static contrast ratio and resolution go hand in hand when it comes to details. To put it into perspective, a TV with low contrast ratio will produce less shades of colors, so lesser detail overall.

This TV is rated with a static contrast ratio of 8000:1., well enough to produce deep blacks. For the record, it also comes with local dimming feature which is a plus.

HDR is also supported on this TV in form of HDR10, HDR10+, Dolby Vision, HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) and Dolby Vision IQ.

Coming to brightness, it is can produce a maximum brightness of 250 nits, which is powered by Direct LED backlight.

Gaming Performance

If you are not planning to game on this TV, you can ignore these specifications. But if you are also planning to use the TV for playing games or use it as a PC monitor, you would want to get a TV that features the lowest input lag and response time.

The input lag on the TCL 85C735 is 15 ms and its minimum response time is 8 ms. It is good enough for both casual and competitive/FPS games.

What is Input lag ?

This lag is the amount of time at which your device inputs changes the content of your TV. For casual Non-FPS games, input lag doesn't matter much.

For best of both worlds, look for a TV that has an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.

Dimensions and Ergonomics

The width of this TV is 75.18 inches while its height is 44.17 inches. In total, it weighs 22.5 kilograms. So plan your space accordingly.

Coming to ergonomics — There is no Swivel, Tilt or Pivot feature support in this TV.
