If saving money is a priority, the Vizio D-Series could be preferable, but keep in mind it performs poorly in bright rooms and for gaming. On the other hand, despite being more expensive, the TCL S450G offers better performance for gaming, and has more HDMI ports, which could be important if you plan to connect multiple devices. Also, the TCL supports higher resolutions, which improves its use as a monitor, and includes various HDR formats for better picture quality in compatible content. Neither option excels in bright environments, so if you frequently watch TV in a well-lit room, you might want to consider other models. Give Feedback

"TCL, though, has built much of its success on affordable sets, and the 2023 TCL S Class S4 with Google TV is a testament to just how good of a TV you can get for an affordable price tag"

"A Full HD TV that has the wits of most 4K TVs at a bottom-barrel price point. It has decent black levels thanks to its full array lighting and the above-par brightness will surprise you. Compared to the competition, the Vizio D-Series is probably the most affordable TV out there from a reputable manufacturer which makes it compelling."

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.
