The Vizio MQ6 '23 LCD TV is a budget-friendly option and comes with a 65-inch screen. It delivers good general picture quality but shows its limits in a well-lit room due to a fair performance in handling reflections and a poor contrast in bright lighting. It offers good color accuracy and is suitable for a variety of content including movies and TV shows, although for fast-moving sports and gaming, the 60Hz refresh rate may not be ideal. The TV has good sound quality but might not be loud enough in large rooms. It also includes voice command features for easier control. If affordability is key and you primarily watch TV in a dim or moderately lit room, this could be a solid choice. However, if you're an avid sports fan, gamer, or intend to place the TV in a very bright room, you might consider other options. Give Feedback

Ratings by Category

Movies & TV shows:
4.2
The Vizio MQ6 '23 (LCD) is excellent for watching movies and cinematic TV due to its high contrast and superb black uniformity, which enhance dark scene performance. Its colors are good right out of the box, and while the color volume and gray uniformity also contribute positively to the viewing experience, its more limited viewing angles mean the picture quality is best when sitting directly in front of the TV.
Cartoons & Animaton:
4.2
The Vizio MQ6 '23 LCD TV displays cartoons and animation well due to its strong performance related to colors immediately after setup and an excellent range of colors it can display. These traits ensure that the colorful and vibrant nature of animated content is presented accurately and vividly.
Overall Picture:
4.2
PerfectRec developed this proprietary score designed to provide an overall assessment of a display's visual performance. It is a comprehensive metric that takes into account many quantitative measures of picture quality, including: contrast ratio, color gamut, color volume, color accuracy, local dimming, gray uniformity, black uniformity, viewing angle, reflections (glare) and color calibration. By combining multiple factors, this score offers a more nuanced and comprehensive evaluation of a display's capabilities than a single factor.
News, Talk & Reality TV:
4.0
The Vizio MQ6 '23 (LCD) is well-suited for news and TV programs due to its good upscaling of lower resolution content and pleasing colors straight out of the box, accommodating various types of media without requiring additional adjustments. Its adeptness at handling standard dynamic range (SDR) content with adequate brightness ensures that typical television programming is displayed clearly, which is crucial for these types of viewing scenarios.
Gaming:
3.5
PerfectRec’s gaming score measures a TV's performance when it comes to playing video games. It is based on several factors that can significantly impact the quality of the gaming experience, including screen response time, input lag, and refresh rate. Screen response time is a critical factor that determines how quickly the TV can transition from one color to the next, while input lag measures the delay between the gaming console output and the TV display. Refresh rate refers to the number of times per second that the TV displays a new frame, which can impact the smoothness of the gaming experience. The gaming score also takes into account two other features: local dimming in gaming mode, which can enhance contrast and picture quality, and black frame insertion, which can reduce screen brightness and create a smoother gaming experience.
Bright Room:
3.3
The Vizio MQ6 '23 (LCD) has a good SDR brightness but a poor HDR brightness, which means while it can display standard content fairly well in a bright room, it struggles to maintain visibility with HDR content that demands higher brightness.
Sports:
3.2
The Vizio MQ6 '23 is considered fair for watching sports because its motion processing capabilities are somewhat limited, which affects the smoothness of fast-moving scenes typically seen in sports. Additionally, the TV's fair performance in handling reflections could be a drawback in brightly lit environments where glare could interfere with viewing.
