If you're on a tight budget and need a smaller screen, the Vizio D-Series could be a good choice for basic viewing, but keep in mind that its overall picture quality, performance in bright rooms, and gaming experience are lesser. Conversely, the Vizio M-Series offers better picture quality and performance in darker rooms, which is preferable for movies and series, with improved speakers and more HDMI ports for connecting devices. However, it comes at a higher price. Both have poor local dimming and HDR brightness, limiting their HDR performance. Neither is optimal for wide seating due to limited viewing angles, but the M-Series supports more advanced HDR formats, offering a potentially better future-proof option if you plan to use HDR content.

"A Full HD TV that has the wits of most 4K TVs at a bottom-barrel price point. It has decent black levels thanks to its full array lighting and the above-par brightness will surprise you. Compared to the competition, the Vizio D-Series is probably the most affordable TV out there from a reputable manufacturer which makes it compelling."
