If you're particularly conscious about budget and simply want the most affordable option, the TCL S450G could be suitable as it typically costs less. However, the TCL's performance in bright rooms is poor, so if the TV will be placed in a well-lit environment, you might find that the Toshiba C350LU, with a better viewing angle, could provide a slightly improved experience, albeit at a marginally higher price. For gaming, both TVs are not ideal due to poor gaming scores, and if you're a movie enthusiast, neither set offers a strong performance. Sound quality in both models is comparable, but if future compatibility is a concern, the Toshiba supports Dolby Vision while the TCL does not, which might make a difference in your HDR content viewing experience. Both TVs have limitations, but your final decision should align with the importance you place on cost versus the specific viewing conditions and content you prioritize. 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.
