TCL S425 series (2019 Roku TV) review: The smartest cheap TV delivers a good enough picture


The Good The TCL S425 series is one of the least expensive smart TVs you can buy. Roku TV delivers the best smart TV experience on the market, with a simple, responsive user interface, thousands of apps and constant feature upgrades.

The Bad It has worse picture than Vizio"s E series TVs. 4K resolution and HDR don"t deliver a substantial improvement in image quality.

The Bottom Line Although the image quality is just "good enough," the S425 series is still an excellent choice for budget buyers focused on streaming and simplicity.
