The TCL S435 is often slightly less expensive than the Vizio V-Series. In a dark room, both TVs do not excel, but the Vizio V-Series is a bit better suited. Both TVs have limited viewing angles, which is typical for VA panels, but the Vizio V-Series is slightly better in this regard. The Vizio V-Series supports Dolby Vision and HLG, and it is HGiG compatible, which benefits HDR gaming, while the TCL S435 does not support these features. If you're sensitive to price and need just basic features, the TCL S435 should suffice. But if you’re willing to pay slightly more for better overall performance, particularly for gaming, watching in brighter rooms, and enhanced audio-visual standards for movies and gaming, the Vizio V-Series may be the better option.

"The TCL 4-Series is so inexpensive and capable you might start to question why there are any multithousand-dollar TVs at all. The 4-Series setup is intuitive and easy. If you're just looking for an easy-to-use TV with decent picture, this is an excellent place to start."

"Vizio's cheapest 4K HDR TV packs in a lot for a low price. The voice control via the remote works well, about as well as Roku's version on devices that have it. So if you know your way around a TV menu, or want to be able to dial in the picture even on an inexpensive TV, the Vizio is the better choice"

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.
