The Vizio V-Series '22 is a budget-friendly option with a fair overall picture quality, making it suitable for general viewing in a controlled lighting environment. It's not ideal for gaming or sports due to its poor gaming performance and only fair sports content score. The Vizio struggles in bright rooms and has limited HDR capabilities, but it offers excellent upscaling and motion processing, which is great for watching movies or TV shows. Its sound quality is poor, so you might want to invest in external speakers. On the other hand, the TCL R745, while pricier, offers a better gaming experience with its good gaming score and has a larger screen size at 85 inches. It shares similar sports content and dark room performance with the Vizio but has a better contrast ratio, which enhances the movie-watching experience. The TCL also has superior color accuracy and volume, and although it has a similar poor viewing angle, it has a slightly better reflection handling, making it a bit more versatile in bright rooms. The sound quality is also poor, so external sound systems are recommended. In summary, if you're looking for a more affordable TV for casual viewing and don't mind the average picture quality and poor bright room performance, the Vizio V-Series '22 is a decent choice. However, if you're willing to spend more for a larger screen with better gaming capabilities, slightly improved bright room performance, and enhanced color reproduction, the TCL R745 is the way to go, but be prepared to pair it with a sound system for the best experience.

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.
