If you're seeking a budget-friendly option, the Vizio D-Series '22 is less expensive and offers good performance for cartoons and animations. However, its picture quality isn't as bright and it has fewer HDMI ports which could limit connectivity with other devices. The TCL Q6, on the other hand, provides better brightness for high dynamic range content and a wider color gamut, which can enhance your movie-watching experience, especially in brighter rooms. It also supports more HDR formats, including HDR10+ and Dolby Vision, which could make a noticeable difference when viewing compatible content. If you often play video games, both TVs have their limitations, but the TCL has a lower input lag, which is beneficial for gaming. The Vizio’s strengths lie in its good performance with reflections and upscaling of lower resolution content, making it suitable for watching standard TV shows and general viewing in a room with some light control. Consider what you'll mostly use the TV for; if you can invest more for brighter picture quality and better HDR support, the TCL Q6 might be the better choice, while the Vizio D-Series '22 is suitable for those on a tighter budget who mainly watch cartoons, news, or reality TV in darker environments.

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.
