The Vizio M-Series LCD TV is a more budget-friendly option that performs well in dark rooms and with cartoons and animation, making it suitable for movie nights or animated content. However, it has moderate performance in bright rooms and with fast-moving sports or gaming content. If you often watch TV in well-lit spaces or if gaming is a priority, you might want to consider other options. Keep in mind that while this TV supports various HDR formats, its local dimming and HDR brightness are not top-tier, which could affect the viewing experience of HDR content. It does well with upscaling and color accuracy right out of the box, and it has a low input lag that is good for casual gaming. The sound quality is average, so for better audio, an external sound system may enhance your experience. Give Feedback

Ratings by Category

Cartoons & Animaton:
4.5
The Vizio M-Series LCD provides a 'Very Good' performance for colors straight out of the box, meaning cartoons & animation will look vibrant and true to the creators' intent without the need for extensive adjustments. Additionally, the TV has a 'Very Good' color gamut, ensuring a wide range of colors are represented, which is crucial for animated content that often uses a variety of bright and vivid colors.
Overall Picture:
4.3
The Vizio M-Series (LCD) displays excellent contrast and black uniformity, which are fundamental to producing deep blacks and a crisp picture, while also having very good color accuracy straight out of the box, ensuring vibrant and true-to-life colors without the need for immediate calibration.
Movies & TV shows:
4.2
The Vizio M-Series boasts a high contrast ratio and effective local dimming which creates deep blacks and enhances the depth of scenes, essential for enjoying movies and cinematic content. Its ability to display colors accurately right out of the box without the need for additional calibration ensures that the picture looks natural from the start.
News, Talk & Reality TV:
4.2
The Vizio M-Series (LCD) excels in upscaling lower-resolution content, making it suitable for standard definition news broadcasts and TV programming. It also delivers very good colors right out of the box, ensuring that programs look vivid and accurate without the need for professional calibration.
Bright Room:
3.7
PerfectRec’s bright room score is a proprietary score of a television's performance in a bright environment, taking into account the following factors: screen brightness, reflections, and color volume. A higher score indicates better TV performance in bright conditions, minimizing glare and producing a more pleasant viewing experience. Brightness is crucial in how well the image displays in direct sunlight, and low reflections reduce glare. Color volume contributes to color vibrancy and depth, which are vital in a bright environment.
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.
Sports:
3.3
The Vizio M-Series is considered fair for watching sports because it has average response time, which might not be fast enough to eliminate motion blur during fast-moving scenes, and its reflections handling is only fair, meaning that it may struggle with glare in bright rooms.
