One of this year’s most popular and affordable Mini LED TVs is going at a pretty decent price for Black Friday. Already reasonably priced, the TCL C845 is hundreds of dollars off at major retailers, presenting as an affordable gaming TV.
TCL has recently carved out a niche in making gaming-friendly displays, with features like high refresh rates and low-latency modes at a much cheaper price than competitors. The company even recently signed a partnership with the Call of Duty franchise as part of its gaming push. Looking specifically at the C845 model, it supports a 144Hz variable refresh rate, ideal for game consoles like the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
Launched earlier this year, it’s also a very bright TV. Thanks to its Mini LED technology, the display punches out peak HDR brightness of up to 2,000 nits. In other words, this TV would help mitigate glare if your living room lets in a lot of natural light during the day.
In terms of a direct competitor, the C845 shares plenty in common with the Hisense U8KAU, the brand’s mid-range Mini LED TV. Hisense’s U7KAU is also a decent Mini LED display, although it doesn’t have as many dimming zones, meaning less control over which parts of the screen illuminate. A Google TV, the TCL C845 supports both Apple AirPlay and Chromecast out of the box, making it easy to cast media from other devices.
