If you are on a tight budget and looking for a cost-effective option, the Vizio D-Series '22 could be the right choice. It performs adequately for watching cartoons and animations, and reflects light well, making it suitable if you plan to place it in a room with some ambient light. On the other hand, if you value a TV with slightly better color accuracy right out of the box and don't mind spending more, you might prefer the Hisense A4H. However, bear in mind that both TVs perform poorly for gaming and their overall picture quality is not impressive. Neither of these TVs are the best bet if you're looking for a great viewing experience in very bright rooms due to their low bright room scores. Give Feedback

About Hisense

Hisense, a Chinese TV manufacturer, entered the US market in approximately 2011 and has since acquired TV divisions from various companies such as Toshiba, Sharp, Hitachi, and NEC. Currently ranking as the fourth largest vendor in terms of sales volume, Hisense aims to capture a wide range of TV budget segments. They offer exceptional value with TVs that often outperform their competitors at similar price points, making them a compelling choice for consumers. In the US, they use Google TV as their smart TV software which provides the largest app selection and a very modern user interface, however it is not as user friendly as the software from other vendors.

About Vizio

Vizio is an American company. While they initially gained recognition for offering budget-friendly TVs, they have successfully expanded their product lineup to include high-end options as well. They manufacture TVs primarily in Mexico, China, and Vietnam. Similar to many Korean TV brands, Vizio developed its own smart TV software called SmartCast. In the past, SmartCast was not the best smart TV software, but it has evolved so that it is now good for using your TV and connecting to streaming services.
