Input Handling (480p and 720p): The TCL 4 Series displays 480p content, like from DVDs, well. & 720p content, like from a cable box, is upscaled well without any obvious artifacts.
Input Handling (1080p): 1080p content, like Blu-rays or game consoles, looks almost as good as native 4k content.
Input Handling (4k): We retested the 4k input to see if there's any spatial dithering because there's some crosshatching in the shadows.
