The Vizio P-Series offers better overall picture quality, especially in dark rooms, and excels in gaming and sports content, making it a solid choice for movie enthusiasts and gamers. Its full-array local dimming enhances contrast and black levels, though it has a narrower viewing angle which is typical for VA panels. It's also more affordable than the TCL R745. On the other hand, the TCL R745 has a larger screen size at 85 inches, which might be appealing if you're looking for a more immersive experience and have a spacious viewing area. However, its picture quality is not as consistent, with weaker performance in dark rooms and less effective local dimming. The TCL does have an edge in sound quality with a 2.1 speaker setup, but it comes at a premium price compared to the Vizio. If price is a concern and you want a better gaming and movie-watching experience in a moderately-sized room, the Vizio P-Series is the way to go. If you prioritize a larger screen and better sound, and are willing to pay more, the TCL R745 could be considered, but be aware of its tradeoffs in picture quality. Give Feedback

Tom's guide

Brian Westover | October 2021
"We were even more pleased to see that performance had improved across the board, with the display offering better color, brightness, and shorter lag times than the already excellent Roku model. Color accuracy was great right out of the box. The TCL 5-Series Google TV becomes a great option for demanding gamers."

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.
