I also have to reset Netflix and log back in fairly often with my TCL.  Really annoying since it doesn't remember the user email or password.  

The model I mentioned (50P8) has an Android 9 OS. so I don't know whether that would eliminate that problem.

Not sure I'd want a big item that has been bouncing around in the back of a delivery pickup on the potholed roads around where I live.  How much in a proper shop?

When I checked with the salesman at the recent PowerBuy sale at Bitec Bang Na, he said the newer machines which have an android OS don't have this problem.

How do you think it got to the shop, still has to be delivered by a truck. Those TV's are packed pretty well, they have to be able to take a few bumps. How would you get it to where you live, carrier pigeon?

Not saying you can't buy cheaper, but you have to compare oranges with oranges. Like does the LG have an Android OS, does it have remote voice control, is it UHD and 4K etc, etc.

Giddyup -  an attractive price at Lazada for such a TV. We have bought other stuff from that seller through Lazada and find their good rating matches our experiences.

 

A year ago we bought the TCL 49 C6US which got Android OS as well. It works well and has our full satisfaction. One minus only - the small remote (one large and one small voice remote included) stopped working after less than 2 weeks. We contacted TCL Service and were told the warranty on the remotes are for one week only. Solved by using a Minix remote which I find works better any way.

I also have a TCL smart TV, but the "smart" part is not very smart so I use an Android TV box and that works fine.

I did use an android box as well in the beginning. It took me some time to understand how the OS in the TCL worked and how to sideload apps, apks etc. But now I find the TCL android OS works at least as well as a good android box. I do however use android boxes for other TV:s in our home as the OS on those are not android based.

so android 9, but is it a full android 9 or one cut down to TLC requirements, as other android tv's are. yes the lg was 4k, LG is a well known and in my house a trusted make. i wasn't knocking the TLC, just giving a comparison.

sounds good, let me know

I tested it a few times last night and it is now working fine. Touch wood. I will know for sure after a few more days. 

 

When they first updated it yesterday, apparently after a few minutes it kicked out of Netflix, so they did a second update and ran a few tests.

TCL Thailand working hours Mon-Fri 10.00-17.00. Contact no. 02-248-7506-08. I speak Thai so had no problems communicating with them. The call center will then coordinate with the technicians. Not sure how well they would be able to handle English. Nor am I sure whether they would be able to handle matters outside Bangkok.
