    What I want to compare:
    TCL 55” CLASS S-SERIES 4K UHD HDR ROKU SMART TV- 55S401
    Hisense 55"class H6 series 4K UHD HDR Smart TV (2017 model)
    Why I want to compare:
    I'm trying to decide which one to buy.
    I like the Roku feature that the TCL 55S401 has to offer. The Hisense's streaming options are said to be limited. However the TCL has CPU: Dual- core / GPU: Dual-core processor, while the Hisense has Octa-core (4-core CPU + FRC 4 | core GPU) processor.

    This will be my first smart TV. How much of a difference do you think this would make?

    The TCL has Power Consumption of 130W compared to 180W on the Hisense. How much of a difference do you think that would make?

    The TCL has Audio Power of 2 Channel x 8W compared to 10W x 10W on the Hisense. How much of a difference do you think that would make? (Maybe either one would need to be supplemented, I don't know. I want the sound to have a long reach.)

    I know these aren't the best brands, but I want to buy a TV locally and quickly, and I don't have the budget for a better one now.
