The TCL S350R is a budget-friendly LCD TV suitable for those who want to save money without expecting premium features. It's a 43-inch screen with overall picture quality and gaming performance assessed as poor, suggesting it may not be the best choice for movie enthusiasts or gamers. Sports content viewing is fair, indicating it can handle some fast-paced action, but its performance in both dark and bright rooms is rated as poor, which implies it won't deliver the best viewing experience in either setting. Additionally, the TV supports HDR formats and is equipped with voice commands for accessibility, yet lacks the advanced technologies like HDR10+, Dolby Vision, and Dolby Atmos that are found on higher-end models.

Ratings by Category

Sports:
3.1
The TCL S350R is considered fair for watching sports because it has a fair response time, which is crucial for fast-moving content but not at the top of its class, and it handles reflections decently, which is important for maintaining a clear image during daytime viewing. However, its motion processing is rated poorly, which means that it might struggle to handle fast-paced action without blur or other artifacts.
