The TCL 8 Series 75Q825 debuted late last year to glowing praise — not just from CNET’s David Katzmaier, but from reviewers far and wide. Ironically, TCL has long been known as a budget brand, but there was nothing low-end about this model — especially the $2,600 price tag.
Just a few days ago, the 75Q825 was back on sale for $1,800, tying its all-time low. Today, however, and while supplies last, you can get the TCL 8 Series 75-inch 4K Roku TV for $1,500, a new low by a pretty hefty margin. It’s still expensive compared with some other 75-inch TVs, but it’s also one of the best TVs you can buy, period.
That’s according to Katzmaier, whose TCL 8 Series review you’ll want to read straight away. A tidbit: “The 8-Series is a beast. Inky-deep black levels and brilliant highlights, created by TCL’s industry-first Mini LED technology, deliver the kind of contrast that makes every image pop, especially HDR. In my side-by-side comparisons it came closer to the standards set by [an] OLED TV than any other I’ve tested this year.”

It’s no surprise, then, that the 75Q825 made CNET’s list of the best TVs of 2020. Meanwhile, it scored a 4.6-star average rating from over 60 Best Buy customers.
And if you’re splurging on that, you might as well splurge on an audio system as well. For a limited time, and while supplies last, Amazon has the Sonos Playbase for $529.98. That’s an all-time low as well; it normally sells for $699. This is a “home run” product, according to Ty Pendlebury in his Sonos Playbase review.
So, yeah, this is pretty much a dream setup. Huge screen, great sound and the biggest discounts ever on both. And because I’m a serious TV junkie, I’m obligated to share some viewing recommendations:
- Hamilton (Disney Plus)
- Knives Out (Amazon Prime)
- Mrs. America (Hulu)
- Palm Springs (Hulu)
- The Umbrella Academy (Netflix)
- Travelers (Netflix)
