    I’ve had this TV for about one month now and the picture and sound quality I must say it’s really nice the black is like midnight and the colors just pops I’m really happy with the TV the only thing is when I got it I didn’t know how to turn the tuner on the Great thing about it is you play around with it and you’ll figure it out because it’s not hard so I finally turn my tuner on. I just love the TV

    I bought this TV to pair with my PlayStation 5, and so far I've been blown away! The 4K resolution and HDR 10 support are phenomenal. I'm very satisfied with my purchase and would recommend this TV to anyone looking to improve their gaming experience!

    Every year that goes by is another year where televisions have more and more in common with tablets, smart phones, and other computational devices. With that comes a newer set of features that we never had to give attention to when it comes to television sets. Issues such as online connectivity, screen freezes, UI, and App stores all play a significant role in deciding what smart TV to commit to, the two later ones come into play on this set. First off, the image quality on this set is great. Color reproduction and fidelity ring true. Sports, gaming, streaming, as well as through the antenna viewing quality are are all superb. Viewing angle distortion is a total non-issue on this TV and it comes with more than a decent amount of options for image tweaking. visual auto settings and enhancements such as Active Full Array, Motion Control, and Super Resolution put the 'smart' in smart TV. When it comes to visuals, this is a very capable set. Which brings me to a feature that I never knew were important until I used a smart TV with horrible one, UI, software, operating system. My old smart TV was plum dumb. It took a good 10-15 seconds to even connect to the internet. And i'm not taking a moderately fast count either. I'm taking full on, scientific, pro bull riding seconds. When it finally connected online the UI was sluggish and prone to freezing. Not great for any viewer, especially those wanting to quickly catch the last few moments of a sports game or news telecast. I'm very pleased to write that this set suffers from none of that. It's very quick to connect and the UI is very responsive to remote inputs. The only downside? There is no way to download any other Apps to the TV. While they do have the heavy hitters such as Netflix, Hulu, and Disney+, if you are a cord cutter you better be subscribed to YoutubeTV or FUBO otherwise you are out of luck. There are workarounds such as using a steaming device from the HDMI port or casting it from another device such as a phone or tablet. I, being a SlingTV user had to cast it from my smartphone to the TV in order to watch live TV. Its a bit disappointing and not too future proof to not have the ability to download Apps. And while the UI is zippy, it does bombard you with just a massive amount of ads and shows from apps you may not be wanting to use. I would say around 4/5ths of the home screen is ads. With a small row of app icons that you can customize the order of. So in the end while this model does offer superior image quality, the take it or leave it UI may turn off some that aren't willing to deal with additional streaming devices or casting workarounds.

    If like me, you prefer a viewing experience that is truly cinematic in nature as opposed to ultra realistic, this VIZIO smart TV would be a good option at an entry level price point for a big screen. We have also chosen to pair this TV with the VIZIO V-Series 5.1 surround sound and find the entire setup to be adequate, while creating a pleasurable viewing experience. Unlike a majority of TV consumers, I do not prefer an ultra realistic cinematic "quality" in a media display or TV. When viewing a program or movie, I dislike feeling like I am in the same room as the actors where it just feels too real & detracts from a truly cinematic experience. For example, when viewing shows such as Chicago Med / PD / Fire, etc. I prefer a good quality resolution as well as a distinguishable cinematic trait that reminds me that this is a film & not so much a sit in interview with the actors on set. I am just not into hyper realism. Prior to acquiring this VIZIO model, I had purchased a similarly priced & competitive offering from Samsung (7000 series Crystal UHD) and was immediately off-put by the picture. Even after toning down the sharpness & customizing the settings, 30 minutes later my whole family had the same reaction in regard to the Samsung's screen attributes. Eye strain! Contrarily with this VIZIO model, I spent roughly 15-20 minutes performing basic adjustments to the settings and we were promptly watching & enjoying the same programs with no eye strain. Call me old school, but in my opinion, the ever advancing technological picture "upgrades" in a lot of today's TV offerings simply take away from the Cinematic experience as a whole. In closing, if you prefer a picture that distinguishes film from reality, and at a reasonable cost, this just may be the right TV for your viewing pleasure. Cons: The TV remote is very basic / borderline featureless, and the sound quality of the TV speakers are fair at best. All of which is to be expected & well warranted at this price point.

    This was my first Vizio TV. I was hesitant to buy, but the price and the size is what I needed. It has been great. The remote took me a little bit to get use to, but it is a smart tv that is based on internet.

    I like the picture it is bright and sharp. Definitely a good value. I'm going to highlight the negatives. First, I've had to reboot it 3 times in the first month, as it doesn't play well with my AV receiver. The remote is so sensitive that it constantly goes past where i want to be. My old Vizio let me create custom video settings and save them instead of just changing the defaults. This is a huge minus. Also, as far as i can figure out, the only way to create a custom list of favorite apps on Smartcast is by using the app on my phone. You can't do it on the TV, which is annoying. Also, while watching a program on prime video, when I've tried to rewind or go forward, on occasion, it has locked up causing me to have to close the app and start over. All that being said, I'm enjoying the TV. Watching a hockey game the picture is so sharp and bright it is almost as good as being there. The definition on 4k movies is better than what you see at a theater.

    Good tv so far.

    I’ve had so far experienced the Vizio brand a few times; I had one previously but exchanged for a different brand. But regarding this model here, it’s sharp with the 4k resolution and is HDR and Dolby vision compatible ; HDR gaming on the PS5 and Dolby vision on the Apple TV. As I was first getting into noticing high definition televisions and such terminology such as frame rate and motion technologies and what have you, I still have much to learn and process. I happened to think that all or most TVs have that soap opera effect when watching movies or series that has a 24-30 default movie type frame rate. But I guess I was wrong as I’ve discovered the website of RTINGS.com that gives just about every ratings from video professionals and has a rating score. But I won’t go into detail in that in regards of this model. This tv doesn’t have that soap opera effect I may still need to do some to tinkering to do but I confirmed later after researching this M series, there’s definitely isn’t that option (or in technical terms there’s no motion interpolation and I’ll miss that feature. The “clear action 360” as found on the specs on the Best Buy page, well it doesn’t specify in detail of what it is but some may assume that it’s going to be having that soap opera effect anyway. When I turn on clear action, in my eyes and interpretation the picture just dims; that’s it - but I’m tinkering with it on Dolby vision with my Apple TV watching movies. Then forums, however says it should be turned off (clear action is pure cinema effect like if you’re in the theater, which I then realized when turning off the lights, and that’s cool), and that you’d have to “reduce judder”, that is if I can find a menu option (still exploring in the menus). Video gaming wise - it doesn’t matter as some games runs 60fps anyhow and I don’t think the soap opera effect benefits when your gaming sometimes (playing COD and there’s stutter or glitching/ghosting of the crosshairs). Asides from all that; build and quality is premium especially the stand. All the ports are on the sides and the power cable is on the back but the plug port is vertical that horizontal - and requires patience as it was HARD to plug in flush. But this would be an ideal wall mount tv no problem! And possibly almost flush against the wall .. or just half and inch clearance. The ports are on the right side so if you have like a cable box to the left, either longer cable or you’ll have to do some rearranging. Overall good tv - Im going to continue tinkering with the settings more.

    A good (but quirky) TV set

    I was debating between the 50" VIZIO M-Series QLED and the comparable Samsung QLED. I eventually went with the VIZIO because I had no problems with my previous smaller HD VIZIO TV over the last 8 years, the VIZIO was rated better for gaming, and the slightly lower price tag. It took me multiple weeks of constant obsessive tinkering to get the picture settings where I wanted them to be. The video looks great now on my custom setting (apart from surprisingly poor viewing angles), and the sound is nice and loud. Watching a 4K Blu Ray via my Xbox One X is a very good experience. I have grown to really enjoy and appreciate the set. Unfortunately, the TV will often default to other picture settings when rebooted, when switching between inputs, or sometimes when leaving apps and I have to manually switch it back to my custom setting. Also, the audio goes out of sync with the video at least once per day, forcing me to reboot the TV. At times, I have to unplug and re-plug the HDMI cable for the TV to detect my Xbox after such a reboot. Maybe some of these quirks can be addressed in a future firmware update (I hope). If I had to do it over again, I might have gone with the Samsung to avoid some of these annoyances. Sometimes you want a piece of technology that "just works."

    OLED to ULED..... Back to OLED

    This was suppose to be a secondary TV for the bedroom. I have a 65' Sony A80J, so I didn't think I would want another OLED. At the start this was fine, but I soon realized that once you got OLED, it's hard to go back to anything else. This Vizio isn't a bad TV at all, it's just not what I wanted in the long term.

    This TV is a great value for the price, paid $430 as part of a daily deal. Local dimming helps make darker blacks which is great for movies. Purchased for my in laws as an upgrade when their old tv broke. Interface is very user friendly and it paired great with their Vizio soundbar over HDMI. Tuner reception is far better than their previous TV with the same antenna. If I had to complain it doesn’t have anything other than HDMI, but it doesn’t seem that anything does these days, so we had to replace their DVD player as well.
