If you prioritize having more HDMI ports and better color performance out of the box, the Toshiba C350LU may be a better choice. However, the TCL S350R offers better upscaling for low-resolution content and performs slightly better in bright rooms due to its fair reflections score. For gaming and use as a monitor, the Toshiba has a good chroma subsampling score which can be important for clear text rendering. The Toshiba also supports a wider range of HDR formats including Dolby Vision, HDR10+, and HLG, providing more flexibility with content. Note that neither TV excels in overall picture quality, and both have poor scores for dark room viewing, meaning they may not be the best for movie watching in dimly lit environments. 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.
