32D3000 from TCL – Presentation of this HD
TCL is now an important television manufacturer, and proposes this basic model 32D3000, a possible choice tested by our Laboratory.
First, the size : 32 inches on this device.
Small but tough ; hopefully seeing its size , it will perhaps follow you (house move or holidays…). Good opportunities to test its reliability in the long run.
Regarding technology, we are facing a model with a HD resolution. Its characteristics are basic, but as we said it already some of them could even be considered as mid-range.and so we are left facing an interesting television set.
Is it worth buying it ? This is the question we are going to answer.
The design of the TCL 32D3000
With its design identical in every respect to the competition, this TCL 32D3000 could have difficulty distinguishing itself in a tense entry-level market.
Nothing has changed in the design of this new model. TCL continues to ride the wave of its design to which we are now accustomed.
Could do better. This could be the overall opinion about this television set. However, it is not necessary to criticize too much; remember the price at which it is offered for sale!
The 32D3000 is simply flat.
With its screen surface of 32 inches, it has a typical piano black color.
As far as the base is concerned, there are also things to say. Indeed it has a double base, in which we have a division where each part of the base has its place. With this, the TV is exactly the same on both sides, thus creating a very symmetrical and stylish TV that can be enjoyed in any room.In the end, we’re on an entry-level product. Even if at this level, when it comes to design, we could simplify it by saying that it is cheap. Materials of poorer quality and ergonomics identical to what was done 5 years ago, make this TCL 32D3000 a just acceptable television set.

Even on an entry-level model, the display restitution on this TCL works very well. The image is faithful and allows to benefit from a clear rendering, without distorting the original source.
With this new model, TCL confirms one of its technological choices. The quality of the LED gives an excellent rendering.
The TCL 32D3000 is available in the HD resolution. In addition, with a screen of 32 inches, the 32D3000 is positioned in the range of small models.At the same time, we are dealing with a nice display on the screen.
Designed with a frequency of 60 Hz, you can forget about using this TV in game or home theater mode. image shifts can be important and the accuracy (compared to the original source) is very average.
Even better, thanks to its advanced technology, the screen of this television provides a HD quality resolution.
To conclude the display part, we could say that it is average; but what more could be asked of a low-end device.
TV sound presentation TCL 32D3000
For those who are not too demanding in terms of quality or sound rendering, this model is interesting. Indeed, the audio system is a little short. Which is normal for this entry-level device.
For the sound part, the television set is equipped with two baffles for a sound power of 8 W.
In any case, you get an average rendering.
And for those who are always more demanding, adopt a few more speakers. The home cinema experience is yours with a sound that resonates right into your living room furniture.
The sound quality of this TV is in a word mediocre; you feel like you’re back in the past to the days of saturating speakers.
32D3000 from TCL – Embedded intelligence
A detail is to be taken into account in the decision to purchase this 32D3000 TCL: there is no smart TV. Good or bad news, I can’t say. Anyway, for those who would like this TV and this feature, you know what to do: buy a TV-Box in addition.
Presentation of the connection technology of TCL 32D3000
TCL has ignored the number of ports and inputs available for this model. Probably a choice related to its entry-level positioning.
Thanks to its above-average number of connections, this TV is very generous.
It is with 6 possible connections that this 32D3000 is presented. The TCL 32D3000 is thus at the very top of its range. The choices offered by its connections are simply enormous.

32D3000 from TCL – The conclusion
In conclusion, the TCL 32D3000 is correct for simple use. No home cinema; and to be placed in a room less than 15m².
The choice of TCL not to include a smart TV system in this 32D3000 seems a shame to us. In our opinion, many will choose another model among the competitors in this range, that will have an operating system.
With its Direct LED panel, this TV is doing better than average. The lighting is uniform.
The HD resolution has been chosen on this TV. A sufficient choice and well adapted to everyday use. But this standard will certainly be outdated in a few years’ time. By then Ultra 8k prices will have dropped.
In short, many positive points that make this TV a very good product. The following 3 points should be remembered:
the sound power, the screen size, the display frequency.
