If you're on a budget and looking for a more cost-effective option, the Vizio V-Series (LCD) is often less expensive than the Vizio V-Series '22 (LCD). The original V-Series may have a slight edge in overall picture quality, especially for movies and series as well as animated content. However, if you're interested in gaming, the V-Series '22 offers a better gaming experience. Both TVs may struggle in bright rooms, but the V-Series '22 has a marginal improvement in handling reflections and maintaining picture quality in well-lit environments. Neither TV is exceptional in a dark room, with both having subpar black uniformity, which is important for watching content with dark scenes. If you are keen on sound quality, the V-Series '22 has a slight advantage despite both having similar speaker setups. In summary, for a lower price and better movie watching experience, go with the original V-Series. If gaming performance and sound are more important to you, and you don't mind spending a bit more, consider the V-Series '22. Give Feedback

CNET

Geoffrey Morrison | June 2021
"Vizio's cheapest 4K HDR TV packs in a lot for a low price. The voice control via the remote works well, about as well as Roku's version on devices that have it. So if you know your way around a TV menu, or want to be able to dial in the picture even on an inexpensive TV, the Vizio is the better choice"
