The Vizio P-Series (LCD) TV is priced in the midrange and offers good overall picture quality, with particularly strong performance in dark rooms and very good performance in bright rooms. It's equipped with a full-array LED backlight and a VA panel, which typically delivers deep blacks and strong contrast—a desirable feature for movie watching. Gaming performance is also labeled as good, which means responsive gameplay and low input lag, but keep in mind this TV has fair response time that might not suit the most competitive gamers. Sports viewing is considered fair, indicating that while it should be enjoyable, it might not excel in fast-moving scenes. Its sound quality is rated as fair, so while it has built-in speakers, an external sound system could provide a significant improvement. With support for various HDR formats including Dolby Vision and HLG, but no HDR10+ support, it can render enhanced colors and contrasts of modern content well. Keep in mind, if you intend to use the TV as a PC monitor, it's just fine, which means it will work but might not be the best choice for someone who needs a dedicated monitor performance. With a total of 4 HDMI ports, you'll have ample connectivity for your devices. Give Feedback

Ratings by Category

Bright Room:
4.7
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.
Cartoons & Animaton:
4.5
The Vizio P-Series (LCD) is very good for watching cartoons and animation because it displays colors accurately right out of the box, meaning animations will look vibrant and true to the creators' intentions without the need for calibrations. Also, its color gamut and color volume are very good, ensuring a wide range of colors is displayed vividly, which is particularly important for the dynamic and colorful nature of animated content.
Overall Picture:
4.4
The Vizio P-Series (LCD) delivers good picture quality due to its high HDR brightness and impressive color volume, ensuring vibrant and detailed images in high dynamic range content. Additionally, it possesses solid black uniformity which enhances contrast for deeper blacks, further enriching the viewing experience.
Movies & TV shows:
4.3
The Vizio P-Series (LCD) delivers excellent contrast and black uniformity which are crucial for deep blacks and detailed dark scenes, making it ideal for watching movies and cinematic TV. It also has good local dimming that enhances these qualities further, although its viewing angles are not as wide, so the picture might not be as good when viewed from the side.
Gaming:
4.3
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.
News, Talk & Reality TV:
4.1
The Vizio P-Series excels in upscaling lower resolution content, which means it can make news and talk shows look sharp even if they're not broadcast in high definition. It also offers very good SDR brightness, ensuring that the picture remains clear and vibrant when watching during the day or in well-lit rooms.
Sports:
3.4
The Vizio P-Series may not deliver the smoothest experience for fast-paced sports due to its lower motion processing capabilities, leading to potential blurriness during quick movements. Additionally, its limited viewing angles can result in color and contrast changes when watched from the side, which isn't ideal for group viewings typical with sports events.

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."
