Pros

Lightweight thin design

This specific model only weighs around 10.8 pounds which makes it easier to carry and move to any part of the house.

It also makes it easy to mount on any wall. You can be assured that it will be securely fixed on the wall as it doesn’t weigh down the bracket.

Easy user interface

This unit is designed intuitively which makes it easy for you to operate. It offers you the benefit of customizing your home screen according to your preference. This makes it easy for you to access your favorite streaming channels, game consoles, and other devices connected in your TV.

Searching for the title of a movie or TV show was also made easier by its Roku Search feature.

Affordable

This product comes at an affordable price which is a great choice if you are on a tight budget. Among all the Smart TVs available on the market right now, this model is one of the cheap models that you can easily afford.

Sufficient picture quality

Given its 720p resolution and 60Hz Refresh Rate, this model is capable of generating adequate picture quality that gives clearer pictures with less motion blurs, a good entry-level option.

Smart functionality

This is built with a Wi-Fi connection which enables you to operate the Roku Streaming Platform. This allows you to search for thousands of movies from different online streaming services, like Hulu and Netflix.

Cons

Subpar HD picture quality

A few customers are not satisfied with the 720p HD resolution provided by this product. This is due to the fact that pictures are not displayed as clearly as those TVs that have 1080p HD resolution.

If you are not content with this product’s resolution, you can always opt for a higher HD resolution, like the TCL 40FS3800 40-inch 1080p Roku Smart LED TV which offers 1080p resolution.

Low contrast picture display

This is a concern for some customers. According to them, the black hues seem to appear gray which illustrates a low contrast of pictures. If you’re not happy with this, you can opt for the LG Electronics 43LF5400 43-inch 1080p LED TV instead, which provides high contrast picture displays.

Fragile screen

A small number of customers have issues regarding the fragility of the TV screen which gets easily dented when poorly handled.

This is quite understandable given its slim design. The best way to avoid this issue is to handle the TV with extra care.

Comparison with other products

The TCL 32S3800 32-INCH 720p Roku Smart LED TV is superior to the LG Electronics 43LF5400 43-inch 1080p LED TV because it is built with Smart functionality.

However, this TCL model may be subpar compared to the LG model in terms of HD resolution and contrast. The LG model has 1080p resolution versus the TCL’s 720p.

The same applies when comparing it to the Vizio E32-C1 32-INCH 1080p Smart LED TV as the TCL falls short with its 720p resolution.

Moreover, the Refresh Rate of the Vizio model is double that of the TCL 32S3800 32-INCH 720p Roku Smart LED TV.

This clearly indicates that the Vizio is clearer, brighter, and has less motion blur than this TCL model. However, this TCL Model has more HDMI inputs than the Vizio model.

Verdict

The TCL 32-INCH 720p Roku Smart LED TV is an adequate entry-level HD television. It has sufficient picture HD quality and Smart functionality thanks to the Roku Streaming Platform. This is a perfect choice if you want a Smart TV with a good user interface.
