If you're on a budget and price is your main concern, the Insignia F30 2024 might be a better choice as it is less expensive. However, when it comes to overall performance, both TVs have their limitations, especially in terms of picture quality where they score poorly. For gaming, sports, and use in darker rooms, neither TV is ideal. If you're looking to watch HDR content, the TCL S450G supports more HDR formats like HDR10+ and Dolby Vision, which can make a difference in picture quality for that specific content, whereas the Insignia does not support these features. The TCL also has better accessibility features like voice commands, which might enhance the ease of use. Keep in mind that neither TV is likely to deliver a premium viewing experience, but if having a broader range of HDR support and slightly better functionality is important to you, the TCL might justify the extra cost.

About Insignia

Insignia is an in-house brand from BestBuy. It offers a range of TV sets that are lower-end and smaller size. They are manufactured in China by Hisense, which is another TV brand. Insignia TVs use Amazon's Fire OS as the smart TV software, providing users with a highly user-friendly experience.

About TCL

TCL, the highly recognizable TV brand from China, has firmly established itself as the second-largest manufacturer in terms of sales volume. Renowned for striking an impressive balance between affordability, picture quality, and design, TCL TVs deliver a compelling overall package. While they have traditionally excelled in the low-end and midrange TV segments, TCL has recently made remarkable strides in the realm of high-end televisions, introducing impressive models that rival top competitors. Most TCL TVs use Roku software which is very user friendly and easy to use, but they have a few other models that use Google TV which has the largest app selection, but is not as user friendly as Roku.
