      Visio Goes High End

      Located in Irvine California, Visio entered the flat panel TV market by contracting various established TV manufacturers to build TVs to their specifications. With this relatively low up-front investment they were able to enter the market with TVs that got everyone’s attention with their reasonable performance, but amazingly affordable prices. This has obviously been very successful for Visio over the years, but operating at the lower margin end of the business is not where they wanted to stay. The new P series from Visio is their first push into the higher feature and performance levels previously occupied by only the top manufacturers like Sony and Samsung. The P series TVs occupy a higher price point than earlier Visio models, but they are still very affordable compared to the big names. Before moving my Visio 65” Model P to its permanent location I temporarily set it on the floor in front of a 6 month old Sony 75” Model 900E that was mounted on the wall. I have included a picture of that setup but it is important to know that the lower screen in the picture is 4’ closer than the upper screen. Both TVs are hooked up to the same roof-mounted antenna via a splitter. The Over the Air (OTA) signal is coming from a farm of 4 Transmitter Towers 35 miles away. Unlike a store display room where every screen is running from a different source to make direct comparison difficult, this setup allows skin tones, color saturation and picture details to be studied. Out of the box the Visio P was much brighter and a bit too vivid even on the “Normal” setting. However, the Visio offers many different automatic screen modes as well as a manual setup mode that lets every aspect of color, contrast and saturation to be individually adjusted. It’s not a good as the human eye actually being there, but you can see in the attached picture that the Visio picture was every bit a pleasing as the much more expensive Sony picture. Nothing is perfect however so here are some Pros and Cons; PROS: - The Price. If you masked off everything but the picture screen, I personally would not have been able to tell which of my TVs was almost twice as expensive (mainly due to screen size). If you’re not influenced by brand prestige, the Visio is the obvious choice. - The Visio P series has almost every high end 4K feature available. From Full Active Array Backlighting, to HDR10 Dolby Vision, to Smart (Chrome) Cast, to built in Apps like YouTube, Netflix and Amazon, to Ultra Bright 1000 Nit peak brightness, the Visio P series is up there with the best LCD displays. - The narrow bezels and overall thin depth of the Visio P series makes these TVs an attractive addition to any Home Theater or Living Room. CONS: - Although it has an Over-the-Air tuner, that tuner is not a sensitive as others. When hooked up to the same antenna, the Visio received fewer channels than my other TV. However, this is only an issue when receiving signals through an antenna from a distant transmitter. If the Visio is hooked up to a good antenna and the transmitter is 10 miles away or closer, the signal will always be so strong that tuner sensitivity is not an issue. If you are using a cable company’s box, then you would be feeding the Visio via one of its 5 HDMI inlet connections instead of the TV’s coaxial antenna connection, thus bypassing the internal tuner altogether. - The stereo speakers on the Visio P series TV are fair, but not equal to the quality of the picture. A TV of this caliber deserves a real 7.2 Surround Sound receiver and speaker array, so the low power and quality of speakers imbedded in the narrow bezels of this TV are best left switched off. CONCLUSION: - The Visio P series shows Visio’s plan for the future. Stage one was getting themselves noticed with competent TV models and amazing prices. Now that their brand is established, they are going after the big boys and the P series is just the beginning.

      I am going to cut to the chase on this TV. If you’re in the market for a TV this size and price, buy it. Brief history on the TV’s I have owned in the past few years. I started in the flat screen world with a Panasonic Plasma 42” and loved it, then in 2014 I bought a Sony LED 55” and was never really happy with the color or viewing angles coming from that Panasonic. Then I got this Vizio….holy smokes what a great TV! Let’s start with the unboxing, they packed the tv to protect the screen and inserted it into a high strength plastic bag with handles that allows you to slide it out easily. They recommend you do this with another person but I’m a grown man and I did it by myself. Leaving it on the Styrofoam inserts also allowed me to put the legs on it. Easy peasy. The TV itself is extremely thin and light for its size. All of your connections are on one side besides the power cable. Nothing that would get in the way of a wall mount, good thinking. Vizio also removed ¾ of the bezel on this tv, leaving only the bottom with a brushed aluminum strip and vizio label in the bottom right corner. T When I first turned the tv on and set it up it was literally like looking at my iPhone X on full brightness in the middle of the night…almost blinding. This TV is bright and extremely colorful. Once I got everything fired up I went in and played with calibrations and within minutes I got the TV exactly where I wanted it to be…for now. I know I’ll be playing with the calibrations for a few weeks till I finally get it perfect but honestly the “Calibrated” setting is pretty close to where I want to be. The picture on this tv is downright beautiful. The only downside I noticed was a slight darkness in all 4 corners..only really noticeable when there are lighter scenes on. Not a huge issue for me, but I know there are those that would skip the Vizio for that reason. From what I can tell, the viewing angles are actually really good...at least compared to what I was used to. The sound on this tv is as you would expect from a flat screen…not so good but I think most of us are rocking a soundbar right? If not you’ll probably end up buying one, this one is nothing to write home about. The TV has built in support for Google Assistant and Alexa. Sweet! This TV also features a tuner, which I understand was missing from a few previous models. The apps on this tv are, unlike my Sony, actually apps that I will want to use. You’ve got VUDU, Netflix, Amazon, Kumo, Crackle and Iheart Radio built into the remote and some more cool ones on the actual tv itself. The apps are really snappy to react when clicking and do not take forever to open (Glaring at you Sony). Vizio has said that they will have an app that, with an internet connection, you’ll be able to stream TV and local channels to your tv, great for cord cutters! The Netflix and Youtube app on this tv is much faster than the app on my cable box, which was pretty fast as is. Loading up took no time at all. Streamed Planet Earth II on Netflix and my jaw just about dropped. The brightness and clarity of the picture is pretty mind boggling. I’m really impressed with this part of the TV and I can’t wait to see how much support the apps get in the future. I won’t get deep into the specs on this tv because there are videos and reviews online for that purpose alone. Go to Best Buy and check this TV out in person, it’s worth your time if you’re in the market for one. I have to honestly say, I’m sad I never gave Vizio a fair shake in my former TV searches…but this 2018 version P series has changed my mind and outlook on the Vizio line as a whole. The picture is incredibly clear and the colors are pretty insane. I’m still trying to delve into all the settings but I am already in love with this TV. After years with my Sony that I liked but didn’t love, this vizio fits the bill perfectly. Great TV for a great price and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a 65” smart tv.

      This is the first Vizio product that I have ever owned and it sure won't be the last from this experience with the 2018 P-Series line... Coming from an avid LG customer, I am very impressed at the level of quality and features packed into this latest Vizio offering. The very first thing I noticed is how elegant the P-Series is (This thing is a looker!) and how slim the bezel(s) are... It's very similar to the Infinity displays that Dell is offering in it's XPS lineup. The initial setup was a bit longer than I had expected. What I mean by that is that after selecting the typical setup options, I had to wait a good 20 minutes for it to download and update itself before being able to use it, while it's not a big deal since it is a Smart TV, it's good for future buyers to know... After the initial setup and updating, I had my very first experience with the SmartCast OS. From being used to dealing with the WebOS from LG, The SmartCast is about up to par with the apps department. The main apps (i.e. Netflix, Hulu, Prime Video, Plex, Crackle and Youtube) are available naively within SmartCast, but like most current TV that has built-in Chromecast. It is heavily dependent on the casting. So in order to use an app that's not available on SmartCast, you can just cast it off the app via mobile device(s). While it's a perk and expands the TV to more devices... I find not being able to re-arrange or remove unused apps a bit annoying... it's the little things. Visually, this TV shines! It is clear and bright at the vivid setting. I can visually see the brightness difference from my 4K LG to this one. Dolby Vision paired with a Dolby Atmos soundbar is amazing! With 5 HDMI inputs available, I currently have my Playstation 4 Pro, Xbox One S, Alienware Alpha and Apple TV 4K connected to the TV with an LG Dolby Atmos enabled soundbar via optical cable. While my gaming looks amazing, the PC connection did not as it was way too bright. This is a minor issue as switching over to the PC settings helped with the issue. I kinda wish there was an preset I can set so when I switch inputs it would change the setting with it. Maybe in a future update? Maybe... Overall, for the retail of $1300, this thing is a steal! While I know the TCL has a comparable model as well for cheaper, I find that as the years goes by Vizio is upping their game in the competitive TV market. You gotta ask yourself if you think buying from a bigger brand (i.e. Sony, Samsung, LG) is worth more for the name only. I'm a logical guy who looks into specs and compares them to other brands... at the end of the day, OLED are super nice, but since I wear glasses... I see the world through filtered lens. I hope this helps... Thanks.

      The quick and easy reviews is that the Vizio P65-F1 is hands down the best TV Ive ever had. Design wise the minimal bezels makes the front all screen. And the silver trim and legs add a nice touch of class. I love the Vizio gives you 5 HDMI ports. No more need for HDMI splitters. The remote is very nice and simple. Easy to learn without having too many buttons. You can also use your phone with the smartcast mobile app. Set up is very simple. Choose language, country, enter wireless info or plug in an Ethernet cable. Name your set, scan for channels, and youre done. The picture is the best Ive seen from any non OLED TV. The colors, black levels, contrast, brightness, etc. are amazing. This is my first TV with true local dimming, and until Ive seen it I didnt know what I was missing. Gone are the light bleed and blooming you get with bright objects on a black background. With the local dimming it produces perfect blacks without losing any of the clarity and brightness of other objects in scenes. With up to 1000 nits of brightness you get amazing bright scenes that dont overdo things despite how bright it can get. HDR on Netflix is awesome. The 240hz refresh rate keeps objects moving in full detail with almost no blur at all. And the picture settings can be simple, or detailed if you want. Either choose on of the presets if you like the look. Or tweak to your hearts consent. There are a lot of adjustments you can make to get the picture calibrated to your liking. I prefer standard mode. The audio is what you would expect from standard speakers. I use headphones for all my audio, but a nice soundbar or surround sound system works as well. My preferred set up is using wireless headphones connected to the optical audio out that connects to my headphones transmitter. Of course the TV comes with all the standard apps you would expect like Netflix, Google Play, Hulu, etc. It will also has access to over 100 free channels with “Vizio Watch Free” coming soon. And yes this has a tuner, so it is a “TV”. Apps and the UI are fluid, fast responding and just work. You can also control your set with Alexa or Google home. It also has USB media playback for your own videos you have on a thumb or external drive. Even though I said this in the first sentence its worth saying again. The Vizio P65-F1 is the best TV Ive ever had. And Ive had quite a few 4K sets over the years. The picture quality, features, build quality, and performance make this my new #1 all time. To get this kind of quality from another brand you will easily be dropping $2000 at the least. Vizio has come a long way and should be on your list while shopping for your next TV.

      To start with, the P65 F1 is easy to unpack and the stand, which consists of 2 legs is very easy to install. Each leg will only fit one way and only on the correct side. You simply use 2 screws in each leg and your done. At 2.7" deep, this is not the thinnest tv on the market, but neither is it too thick From the front, this is a beautiful tv.with a bezel-less design around the top and sides. There is a very attractive 1/2" silver bezel along the bottom. Vizio put their name all the way to the right and the power indicator all the way to the left, so that neither are noticeable when watching tv. When you turn the tv on it will walk you through the setup which is quick and simple. After you attach your soundbar, Bluray etc. and you are ready to go. Vizio has pre-calibrated settings: Calibrated, Calibrated Dark, Vivid, Game, Computer and Standard. And of course these settings can be further customized by you. For the most part I have watched in Calibrated mode. And what a great picture.My first reaction was "Wow this picture is bright!" And for those of you interested in black levels, with this tv blacks are black. No purples or other distortions of black. Watching sports and been great with no blur when a baseball is thrown or a golf ball is in flight. If you want a quick look at what the tv is capable of you can go to the Youtube app and watch 4k videos. They are really impressive. Watching a Bluray movie, whether in 4K or not, is also dramatically better than anything I have seen on a tv. Casting is quick with 6 preset app buttons on the remote as well as a dedicatied Vizio Cast button. The remote is small and not backlit, however, it is well laid out and very intuitive so that backlighting is not neccessary.It is also very comfortable in the hand. I have Google Home speakers and with this tv I can ask Google to turn on the tv. When the tv turns on, my soundbar automatically turns on. The same goes when turning it off. Of course you can also ask Google to turn on a particular show on a specific app, and play, pause, etc. It is nice to not have to attach streaming devices to your tv. The quality of picture you see is very source dependent. Streaming and Bluray are terrific. Cable box is very good though not quite as impressive since the signal source is 1080i. The only negative to this tv is off angle viewing which is inherent in a VA panel. The tradeoff being that you get much better contrast. However, the only time I noticed this was when I had my computer connected and the screen was all white. During regular programming it was not noticeable at all. I won't go into specs as they are clearly listed on the BestBuy website. Overall, this is a great tv that i think will meet or exceed your expectations. Vizio has done a great job providing a user interface which is logical, simple to follow and won't overwhelm anyone who may not be comfortable with technology. I would buy it agian and would highly recommend it.

      A good display that isn't so *smart*

      Posted

      Vizio has a reputation of being a 'cheap' TV brand but fortunately with the P65-F1, it doesn't look cheap at all. The back is made of hard plastic but out of sight, out of mind. The front display looks beautiful and unassuming. The bezels are thin and the Vizio logo on the bottom right is very discrete... almost hidden as it's silver on silver. The display itself looks good, and it's Dolby Vision and HDR capable. Unfortunately I found the brightness on my display uneven in that all 4 corners are dimmer than the rest of the display. It's like the opposite of light bleed. So while the Dolby Vision content looks great on it, the dark corners were still there. With my untrained eye, I found it difficult to tell the difference between HDR10 content and Dolby Vision, but that could also be the fault of the way the content was produced. The Dolby Vision content I was watching may not be using it to its full potential. But on paper, Dolby Vision is supposed to be a better version of HDR, so in that regard it's got some "future-proof" to it. The speakers on the set are average. Not spectacular, but not bad either. Where the TV really falters is in its smart features. Smartcast is largely a rebranded Chromecast that just peddles bloatware. First off, loading the Smartcast screen is slow. Then it places the apps on the bottom-most row, right below the main featured content and a "Discover" row. I read a review for this TV stating it doesn't have ads and while that's true, it's only true on a clever technicality. Those 2 rows above the "Apps" row are probably worse than ads because they occupy so much space and the cursor selection defaults to them when you first open Smartcast, instead of defaulting to the Apps row. About the Smartcast apps- What you see is what you get built-in. There's no store to download more. There's no option to remove what you won't use. There's no option to rearrange the order the apps are presented in. This could change with firmware releases, but don't hold your breath. Fortunately Vizio had the good sense to make Netflix the first app in the Apps row. Could you imagine if it were the last? You'd have to scroll over to it EACH time you wanted to use it. In fact, that's what you need to do if you want to view USB content, since the USB app is second to last on the row. The last spot in the Apps row directs you to a page that tells you to download more apps on your phone to cast them to your TV for more content. That's their answer to other TV's app store. And that's so lame and lazy since again Smartcast is like a rebranded Chromecast. You can buy Chromecast separately for a cheaper TV and achieve nearly the same results. The main feature you'll lose is the built-in Google Assistant-compatibility feature, which itself is kind of flaky. First off, to be able to even take advantage of this, it's an additional cost of purchasing a Google Home device. Power on and off voice commands work fine. The volume up and down commands, however, are horrendous. It's way too slow and the change in volume is way too minuscule. You'll find yourself either repeating the command over and over or waiting a LONG time for it to change the volume. Consider this: Your volume is set to 60%. You tell Google to set your living room TV volume to 25%. The TV doesn't immediately change the volume to 25%. Instead the volume incrementally goes down in slow fashion. I don't even use that command because it's just way too slow, and erratic. Sometimes the volume decrease or increase goes past the level you asked for. I just stick with the remote. The remote itself is also the typical Vizio cheapness. It's not backlit, nor does it have those buttons that absorb light and glow in the dark. It has dedicated buttons for Vudu, Netflix, Amazon, Xumo, Crackle, and iHeart Radio. If any of these companies ever stop supporting these apps on Vizio TVs (look at Skype with Samsung TVs) you'll have a button that won't do anything. Those aren't even all the built-in apps that the TV actually offers. Surely Plex is more popular than frickin Xumo. If you can get it on sale and don't care about smart features, this would be a TV to consider if you're looking for a Dolby Vision capable TV. I would not buy this TV for anything over $1000. Otherwise, look elsewhere or wait for OLED to become cheaper.

      A good 4K TV picture

      This probably won't be a really long review. Bottom line, this TV offers a pretty good 4K HDR picture for it's price range. Let's talk about setup! Popping the TV out of the box is a 2 person job just because of how large it is. You can probably manage it alone if you're just going to pop the stands on and sit it on an entertainment center but if you want to hang it on the wall, bring a friend as lifting 50+ lbs to hang on a wall mount would not be pleasant alone. That said, there were no surprises here. It was kind of neat that there were 4 screws in the holes for mounting so you don't just have gaping holes in the back of your TV if you don't want to mount it. Plugging in the TV, we begin the actual setup process. A couple of standard (and not so standard, should "store mode" really be part of the consumer facing setup process?) questions and we got to setting up wifi. Entering my rather long WiFi password was tedious. Input on the remote feels delayed and not very smooth when "typing" and the keyboard layout is the ridiculous ABCDE layout instead of QWERTY. Finally getting my password in, the TV checked for updates and applied them. That's where the breezy setup process ended. After updating, it seems like my network was forgotten. Nothing would connect to the internet. I reentered my password. Still nothing. Turned off the TV and turned it back on. Still nothing. It wasn't until I unplugged the TV for a minute and plugged it back in that it actually connected to my network and the built in apps like Netflix started to work. The built in apps are nice to have but I'll be using my AppleTV 4K instead. All of the built in apps just feel sluggish with a lot of loading indicators and slow input from the remote.They're usable but far from a good experience. That said, there are some cool things. The "SmartCast" thing that starts up with a bunch of free streams you can watch is pretty cool. I don't have cable so I'm all for any type of service that helps out cord cutters like myself. I logged in to Netflix and started up an episode of Altered Carbon to check out the Dolby Vision 4K. Using the built in Netflix app seemed to take half a minute or so to finally hit 4K quality but it got there and it looks fantastic! There are 2 picture settings called Calibrated and Calibrated Dark which are pretty much setup for you (the Dark profile for if you're in a darker room). The picture quality on these settings is really good and doesn't require any fiddling at all. I was impressed. Audio quality from the TV is OK. Actually decent for coming from the TV which usually sounds like crap. Volume can be good and the sound filled my room pretty well. Hooked up my AppleTV 4K and had no issues with it just working. It detected the Dolby Vision and adjusted my settings accordingly. Picture quality looks great still. So, bottom line, this TV has a great picture in 4K HDR/Dolby Vision. It sounds pretty decent for a TV (but obviously, get a receiver or sound bar or something). The apps that are included are not very great to use but there are a lot of cool things that are just included so if you don't mind the clunky user experience, they'll probably do you pretty well. I can recommend this TV if it's in your budget and you want a nice picture.

      I received this TV two days ago and all I can say is wow! This is Vizio's first attempt at the high scale TV market and they started out right. First of all, the packaging hints at how well this unit is crafted. The TV is well packed and protected. The unpacking instructions are simple and well thought out. Once you lay the box flat the TV pulls out easily with the built in handles in the bag surrounding the screen. The two small stands slide in easily and attach with two screws each. The connection ports are easy to get to and you will be up and running in no time. Setup is step by step and you will be connected online and the unit updated in between 15 to 30 minutes, depending on your internet speed. Once the initial setup is complete the true magic begins. The preset calibrated settings look great. The colors from deep black to bright whites are super life-like. I have it hooked to my Xbox X and it allows to experience the best 4K experience available. The only item I had an issue with was HDR not showing available for movies and games. I spent some time reviewing documentation and could not figure out how to enable. I finally called Customer Service and my call was answered on the first ring. The agent was very friendly and my question answered in a matter of minutes. I was connected to HDMI port 5 and only ports 2 through 4 support HDR. The excellent picture got much better with HDR enabled. The connected features are amazing. Casting from your mobile device is simple with any applications that work with Chromecast. the Vizio Cast application allows your mobile device to act as a full function remote control. in addition you can connect it to Google Home and control with voice commands. The TV housing is beautiful and of high quality material. The P series is a good option to consider if you are looking for a high quality, budget friendly TV. The advanced features will keep this device up to date with technology for years to come.

      I would recommend this to a friend
