If you're on a tight budget, the Vizio D-Series '22 might be the better choice as it costs less. However, keep in mind that the TCL S455 has significantly better input lag performance, which is important if you're into gaming. Also, the TCL S455 supports High Dynamic Range (HDR) content, including HLG, which the Vizio does not, making the TCL a better option for watching HDR movies and TV shows. The TCL also has more HDMI ports, which could be a deciding factor if you need to connect multiple devices. Both TVs have similar overall picture quality but expect better reflections handling with the Vizio if you're placing it in a room with many light sources. Consider the TCL S455 if you can stretch your budget for better gaming performance and HDR support, but choose the Vizio if you want to save money and require a TV with fewer reflections.

USA Today

Lee Neikirk | January 2022
"A highly affordable but reliably kitted-out 4K Roku TV that, while far from perfect, still punches above its price and delivers a great user experience. If you want to soup up movie night for a bargain, the 4-Series won’t let you down. You may never need to plug in a set-top box or streaming device."

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.
