If you are looking for a TV and gaming is important to you, the Vizio P-Series generally offers better performance in gaming than the M-Series. It also has a higher quality picture in bright rooms. However, it is more expensive. The M-Series, while more affordable, does not perform as well in gaming or bright conditions but still offers good quality for movies and general content watching. Both are compatible with common HDR formats and have similar sound capabilities, but neither has particularly great built-in speakers. If budget is a concern and you mostly watch movies or stream series in moderate lighting, the M-Series might suffice. If you want a better all-around experience, especially in brighter rooms and for gaming, the P-Series would be a better choice, provided you're willing to spend more. Give Feedback

Tom's guide

Brian Westover | October 2021
"We were even more pleased to see that performance had improved across the board, with the display offering better color, brightness, and shorter lag times than the already excellent Roku model. Color accuracy was great right out of the box. The TCL 5-Series Google TV becomes a great option for demanding gamers."
