The Vizio D-Series '22 LCD TV is offered at a budget price and is a decent choice for standard content like movies, news, and animation, with fair performance in both dark and bright rooms. However, it's not ideal for sports or gaming due to poor performance in those areas. This TV doesn't excel in areas with a lot of ambient light as it has a poor bright room score. The color quality is excellent out of the box, and the TV supports HDR formats, but the HDR experience may not be optimal due to its poor HDR brightness score. It does not support advanced HDR formats like HDR10+ or Dolby Vision. If sound is important to you, note that this model does not have great speakers and might require external audio solutions. For casual viewers and non-critical watching, it's a reasonable option, but if you're looking for a TV with a great gaming experience or superb picture quality in bright rooms, you might want to consider other models.

Ratings by Category

Cartoons & Animaton:
4.1
The Vizio D-Series '22 (LCD) delivers excellent colors straight out of the box, making cartoons and animations look vibrant and appealing without the need for calibration. Although its color gamut is less ideal, the set maintains a fair color volume, ensuring that bright and varied tones in animated content are displayed sufficiently well.
News, Talk & Reality TV:
3.7
The Vizio D-Series '22 is fair for watching news and TV programs partly because it has excellent colors out of the box, which is beneficial for those types of content. However, its upscaling capability is rated as only fair, meaning that lower-resolution content might not look as clear on this TV.
Overall Picture:
3.6
The Vizio D-Series '22 (LCD) displays fair picture quality due to poor color gamut and color volume, which restricts the range and depth of colors displayed, and it only has a modest contrast performance, limiting the richness of the viewing experience, particularly in HDR content.
Movies & TV shows:
3.2
The Vizio D-Series '22, while having a decent contrast ratio for movie watching, falls short with poor local dimming, which can affect the detail in darker scenes. Additionally, while colors appear pleasant out of the box, the TV's limited color volume may not fully convey the director's intent in vibrant cinematic pieces.
Sports:
3.2
The Vizio D-Series '22 has good reflection handling, which is beneficial for watching sports in well-lit rooms, but its limited viewing angles could reduce the clarity of the picture when seen from the side. Additionally, its fair response time might lead to some motion blur during fast-paced games.
