If you're looking for the most affordable option and occasionally watch cartoons and animation, the Vizio D-Series '22 would save you some money and perform slightly better in that content. However, both TVs have similar overall picture quality with fair performance, and both are budget models, so neither excels in bright rooms or with gaming content. The Vizio has an advantage with voice commands and a slightly more powerful speaker system, which might enhance the user experience. If these features align with your preferences and you're watching in less bright conditions, the Vizio could be preferable. But if you watch a lot of varied content and you're looking for slightly better sports viewing or you prefer the TCL brand, you might opt for the TCL S350R despite the slightly higher cost. Both models have their limitations, so consider what content you'll be viewing most and your desired features when making a decision. Give Feedback

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.

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.
