If you're on a tight budget, the TCL S450F might be the more suitable choice, keeping in mind that it delivers fair picture quality across different content and environments but struggles with local dimming and HDR brightness, which could affect your experience when watching movies in dark rooms. Alternatively, the Vizio V-Series costs more, but it has better response time and higher HDR10+ and Dolby Vision support, enhancing your experience with more immersive and dynamic visuals during movie sessions. Both have comparable sound, overall picture quality, and feature lower performance for gaming, meaning neither will excel if you're a serious gamer. If you prioritize enhanced HDR content and latest format support and can spend a bit more, Vizio could be the better option. However, if cost savings are paramount and you mostly watch TV shows or news in a moderately lit room, the TCL should serve you well. 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.

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.
