The Vizio MQ6 '23 is typically much less expensive and offers good overall picture quality, better for watching movies, series, and animation. It has a higher dark room score, which means it performs better in low-light environments. On the other hand, the Vizio Quantum Pro costs more but provides higher gaming performance and a brighter picture, which is advantageous for well-lit rooms. It also features a 120Hz panel, which can offer smoother motion for sports and gaming. However, it has a lower dark room performance than the MQ6. If you are on a budget and mainly watch movies and prefer darker viewing environments, the MQ6 '23 would be a suitable choice. If you can invest more and prioritize gaming or watching TV in bright rooms, the Quantum Pro would be the better option. Give Feedback
