The Vizio V-Series '22 is an LCD TV with a 65-inch screen, priced in the upper midrange category. It offers fair overall picture quality with particular strengths in upscaling content and color accuracy out of the box. However, it struggles in a few areas: its performance is poor for gaming, also in dark rooms, and bright rooms, which could affect your experience if you commonly play video games, watch movies in dark environments, or view TV in well-lit spaces. The TV supports popular HDR formats like HDR10+, Dolby Vision, and HLG, providing more vibrant colors and better contrast in supported content. It has a reasonable number of HDMI ports, but its speakers are not its strong suit, suggesting that an external sound system might be necessary for an immersive audio experience. For those who plan to use the TV as a computer monitor, it does a fair job, with good chroma 4:4:4 support which is important for clear text rendering. Give Feedback

Ratings by Category

Cartoons & Animaton:
3.8
The Vizio V-Series '22 (LCD) displays colors straight out of the box excellently, which means cartoons and animations will have vibrant and accurate colors when you first set up the TV. However, its color gamut is scored as poor, indicating a limited range of colors, which may result in some colors not appearing as rich or vivid as they should in animated content.
Overall Picture:
3.3
The Vizio V-Series '22 has fair picture quality because, despite having strong colors straight out of the box, it lacks a wide color gamut and volume, which impacts the richness and accuracy of colors displayed. Additionally, the TV's HDR brightness is considered poor, which means it may not bring out the best in high dynamic range content, causing some scenes to look duller than intended.
Sports:
3.1
The Vizio V-Series '22 is characterized by fair reflection handling which may pose challenges in bright rooms, and its response time is also fair, indicating that you may notice some motion blur during fast-moving scenes like sports. Additionally, the TV has limited viewing angles which means the picture quality may degrade if you're watching from the side rather than directly in front.
Bright Room:
3.0
The Vizio V-Series '22 is considered poor for watching TV in a bright room because its SDR brightness is only fair, making it less capable of countering ambient light, and its HDR brightness is poor, which means HDR content won't stand out as much as it should. Additionally, its fair reflection handling indicates that it struggles with managing reflections from light sources, further impairing its bright room performance.
