Vizio is clearly urging players with its new 4K TV collection, which is coming out, which presents all the essential elements necessary for new generation consoles, including HDMI 2.1, essential for TVs with high update frequencies, in addition to HDR and 4K. You will have to wait a long time for the company OLED units provided until a little later this year.
Generally, HDMI 2.1 is only included in super expensive Television. This could be a problem if, for example, you are going to buy the Xbox Series X later this year and would like to take advantage of the powerful performance expected of you, but there is not enough money left to buy an expensive TV. Vizio’s V-Series, however, supports the 2.1 inputs required for the next generation of consoles at a surprisingly decent price: starting at $ 230 for a 40-inch screen up to $ 800 for a 70-inch model. This could be one of the cheapest ways to get HDMI 2.1 and the new collection supports low input delay, 4K and HDR. (We contacted to find out how high the refresh rate will be.)
Vizio’s P-Series Quantum X, the most expensive of the lot, offers up to 3,000 nits of peak brightness and 800 nits of full screen brightness. Brightness is paramount if you want your HDR to really appear and you think it’s worth spending your money. The higher peak brightness is almost always better. P-series units are available in 65-inch, 75-inch and 85-inch models, starting at $ 1,500 and up to $ 2,300.
In the meantime, the P Quantum series: a Very good TV we love: it offers 240 local dimming zones and 1,200 nits of peak brightness and starts at $ 1,200 (up to $ 1,700) for its 65 and 75-inch screen sizes. The M series of the Quantum company, the middle person between Vizio’s premium P series and its inexpensive V series, will also support HDMI 2.1. Vizio’s rigged (but more expensive) MQ8 units come in 55 inches and 65 inches for $ 550- $ 750 and are sold exclusively through Amazon. MQ7 televisions will be available at other major retailers in 50, 55 and 65 inch screens between $ 400 and $ 700.

And, shit! An OLED! Vizio’s foray into OLED space will come with its SmartCast 4K HDR televisions in both the 55-inch and 65-inch versions. They will ship in the fall, starting at $ 1,300 (up to $ 2,000). This is a space currently dominated by Sony and LG, but Vizio has lower prices for both similar models. Vizio could become an OLED favorite, although the type of display can be difficult to make. There is also the question of whether Vizio is using its own panels or whether they are being supplied by Sony or LG. If the latter, this would mean that the difference in quality between its televisions and its competitors could be much smaller than you think.
Finally, Vizio is starting to launch its latest range of soundbars, with the V-Series 2.1 now available for $ 180. Its V-Series 5.1, which will cost $ 250, will be available from July 5th, while its M- soundbar Series All in One 2.1 will drop later on July 26 for $ 150. Its top-of-the-line unit, Elevate 5.1.4 with 18 speakers featuring Dolby Atmos and DTS: X, will begin shipping in the fall for $ 1,000.
If you are in the market for a new TV, Vizio is a good example for itself:particularly if you are a player on the market for a new unit that will absolutely not break the bank. Buying one now could take the sting out of a vacation madness.
