Vizio first made its reputation offering TVs at very affordable prices. In more recent years, though, they’ve risen to compete with other brands for their quality as well. The likes of Sony and Samsung might still make the best TVs on the market, but it’s hard to beat a Vizio in terms of value for the money. And while they still offer great cheap TVs, they now also make excellent OLED sets that cost less than those of their competitors. So if you are looking for a new TV (or to add a second TV), Vizio is a great brand to consider if you don’t want to break the bank.
The Best Vizio TVs
What to Consider
TVs come in many sizes and price points these days, with a slew of features to consider. But as we’re only talking about Vizio TVs here, that helps narrow the field considerably. All Vizio TV use the Smartcast streaming platform and come with the company’s WatchFree app that includes 150 free channels. And the company has grouped its offerings into five series: D, V, M, P, and OLED, with each being subsequently higher quality (and more expensive). So if you know your budget and what size you need, your choice is almost made for you. That said, there are a few things you’ll want to consider before making your purchase.
While you may be tempted to buy the biggest TV you can afford, there actually is a science to choosing the correct TV size. (And you may want to spend your dollars on picture quality rather than just screen real estate.) As a rule of thumb, your TV size should be half of the viewing distance. So if your sofa will be 10 feet (120 inches) from the TV, you should get a 60” TV. Too large a TV can overwhelm your room, while too small may not give you an optimal viewing experience.
With Vizio offering 4K TVs at exceptional prices, you probably won’t consider their D-series of 1080p televisions unless you want a smaller, inexpensive set as a second TV. But other features than resolution (like HDR) contribute to picture quality. You’ll generally get what you pay for, and if you have the budget, an OLED will offer dramatically better quality than an LED set.
If you plan to use your TV for gaming, you will want to be sure your TV is equipped to handle it. First, look for a refresh rate of 120Hz (as opposed to 60Hz), which will help reduce lag time. Many of the Vizio sets we’ve recommended also come with features geared toward gaming, like AMD FreeSync, which helps ensure smooth game play.
