The LG UP8000 is often significantly less expensive than the Vizio M-Series. If your budget is tight, LG UP8000 may be the way to go. However, the Vizio M-Series offers superior picture quality overall, making it a better choice for watching movies or TV series. The Vizio M-Series also has better performance in dark rooms, which can enhance viewing experiences in low-light conditions. For gaming, the LG UP8000 has slightly better performance, so if that's a priority, you might lean towards the LG. When it comes to bright rooms, both TVs are quite close in performance, but the LG UP8000 is rated slightly higher, though the difference may not be significant based on your viewing conditions. If you're after more advanced features like HDR10+ and Dolby Vision, which can improve picture quality for compatible content, the Vizio M-Series supports them, while the LG UP8000 does not. Additionally, the Vizio comes with one more HDMI port, which can be convenient if you have multiple devices to connect. In summary, choose the LG UP8000 for a lower cost and slightly better gaming performance, or opt for the Vizio M-Series for better movie watching and advanced HDR features at a higher price point.

Stratos Kampourogiannis | July 2021
"What we liked on this one was the very sharp 4K images it could display, its good up-scaling capabilities, nice viewing angles and extremely low input lag. Lastly the new webOS 6.0 is great even if it needs some time to get your bearings while the redesigned Magic Remote feels fresh even if functionality remains the same."
