If you're looking for an affordable option and don't mind compromising on picture quality and performance across various content like gaming and sports, the Vizio D-Series '22 might suit your needs, though it won't perform as well in bright rooms. On the other hand, if you can spend more for better overall picture quality, the ability to view HDR content, and enhanced sound with Dolby Atmos, the Vizio MQ6 '23 is a stronger choice. The MQ6 '23 also supports more advanced HDR formats like Dolby Vision, HDR10+, and HLG, which could improve your movie and series watching experience. However, for gaming, both TVs have limitations, and if you frequently watch TV in a bright room, the MQ6 '23 might not perform as well as desired. Give Feedback
