If you're on a budget, the TCL S546 could be a better choice as it's typically much less expensive. However, the Vizio Quantum Pro offers slightly better performance in bright rooms and better gaming features, reflecting its upper midrange price. For watching sports, both are comparable, but if gaming is a priority and cost is not an issue, the Vizio Quantum Pro may be more suitable. Both struggle with viewing angles, so if you often watch TV with a large group spread around the room, neither will be perfect. Neither are standout options for watching movies or series in dark rooms. 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.
