Vizio M-Series Quantum 4K UHD TV review: Same accurate color, now with upgraded ports

PCWorld

It didn't take long to confirm what I suspected during my Vizio V5-Series review--the slightly more expensive M-Series Quantum offers a far better picture. It's not perfect perfect by any means, but the color is more accurate, and the screen uniformity far outstrips that of the V-Series. If you're shopping mid-range Vizio, the M-Series Quantum is what you want. Skip a couple of lunches to save up the extra cash. The M-Series, including the 55-inch class model M55Q6 that I tested, are 60Hz, 3840 x 2160 (4K UHD), 10-bit TVs.


This affordable Vizio TV goes toe-to-toe with the best in its class

USATODAY - Tech Top Stories

The V-Series' affordability makes it a perfect choice for folks who want to lock down a gigantic, 65-inch (or bigger) TV without cracking $1,000. Its performance is just fair, but it packs some features that are relatively hard to come by in this price bracket. Of course, there's some fine print: Its limited viewing angles make it a less-than-ideal 70- or 75-inch option, its Dolby Vision HDR certification is undercut by a lack of brightness, and Vizio's smart platform isn't nearly as flexible as TVs with Roku baked in. Still, the V-Series packs a ton of value for the price, and it's worthy of consideration for non-fussy shoppers who are just looking to upgrade on a budget. Editor's note: Due to COVID-19 complications, this review leans heavily on test results in lieu of hands-on time with the TV.


Vizio vs. TCL: TVs for every budget

Mashable

Vizio and TCL sell budget-friendly TVs that don't compromise on quality -- perfect for gaming, virtual workouts, and binge-watching Cobra Kai. Reviewers love them because they're not as expensive as TVs from other top brands, but have many of the same features. But what brand should you choose? Both TCL and Vizio offer models with 4K resolution and advanced gaming features to use with the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. To help you decide, take a look at our TV breakdown. Sure, they don't have 4K or 8K displays.


Vizio's first OLED TVs are coming this fall, and they're priced to move

PCWorld

Vizio made a splash at CES back in January when it announced that it was jumping into the OLED market, and now the TV manufacturer says its first two OLED 4K TV models will arrive this fall with enticingly affordable price tags. Vizio is also teeing up the rest of its 2020 TV and soundbar lineup, including its new P-Series quantum-dot 4K LCD TVs powered by a revamped image processor, its new flagship Elevate soundbar with swiveling upfiring drivers, and its updated SmartCast 4.0 smart TV software. While Vizio first spilled the beans about its OLED plans back at CES, it's only now serving up more details about its upcoming OLED models. Cutting right to the chase, we're talking two models, both of which are slated for fall: a 65-inch OLED TV for $2,000, and a 55-inch version for $1,300. While a $2,000 TV might sound pricey for Vizio, a brand known for its moderately priced televisions, it's actually a bargain compared to LG's upcoming 65-inch CX-series OLED, which is slated to sell for $2,500.


Vizio SmartCast P-Series 4K UHD Display review: Great color and HDR overcome a few minor issues

PCWorld

If you want to escape the washed-out color of low- and mid-range LED TVs without breaking the bank, Vizio's SmartCast P-Series displays are the way to do it. That said, Vizio claims of "picture perfection" are overstated--the P-Series are not without flaws; at least not the $1700 65-inch version we tested. Regardless, the color and HDR are impressive. The P65-E1 we tested sports a relatively thin silver bezel, is about 2.5-inches deep, and weighs in at approximately 63 pounds including stands. We aren't sticklers about looks, at least once the game or movie starts, but the silver bezel is more noticeable than darker-colored bezels that tend to blend in with the display panel itself.
