TCL unveiled an array of new Roku TVs and home theater products at CES 2021, including an exciting 8K version of the 6-Series and a new wireless soundbar. What's not getting as much attention, however, is the announcement of TCL's XL Collection: a set of three 85-inch TVs, where each size represents a different performance tier. Of these three TVs, the 85-inch TCL 4-Series—the most affordable of the collection—is the one we're most excited about.

The TCL 4-Series has been around for a few years, but during that time, we've frequently recommended it to folks who are shopping for a no-frills, budget-friendly 4K TV that will look good regardless of content type. You can check out our review of the TCL 4-Series for the full picture, but essentially, the 4-Series is a fantastic TV for folks who need to upgrade to a 4K TV for the first time. It doesn't have much in the way of bells and whistles, but being a Roku TV, the 4-Series comes with our favorite smart platform in tow.

The 85-inch TCL 4-Series (85S435) is slated for release at the end of Q1 2021.

The 85-inch TCL 4-Series follows suit; according to TCL, it'll hit shelves later this quarter and retail for $1,599. That's a ridiculously low price for a room-dominating 85-inch TV. The extra-large 4-Series doesn't have quantum dots or TCL's mini-LED display technology, but if you're just trying to lock down the biggest TV you can find for the lowest price, the 85-inch 4-Series might end up being your best bet.
