Thread Details

Been waiting for this TV for a while and it's finally here. Can't find it in any stores only at vizio.com

The price is so low at retail that I feel it strongly competes with all other deals being posted especially with full array technology

Not a bad entry level TV but it does have some issues as posted here and this is list price so I can't say this is anything special other than an everyday low price -- the annoyances listed is why I skip Vizio personally.

I think they are playing games calling this TV a full array

from what I see this is a back lit LED

a few years ago similar sized full array Vizios had 10x the amount of dimming zones

its full array and it shows...its on display at my local Target...even the 40" model has an awesome picture on it...but early reviews report a ticking noise when the tv is powered down...believed to be caused by a faulty PSU in the tvs, so YMMV on these new 2014 Vizios

ok?


a full array with only 16 zones in a 60in size
that does not give me high expectations

they had a well reviewed XVT a few years ago that had 120 zones in a 55 " size

interesting...the M series has 32 active zones and the 4k models have 384...wow, they skimped on the E series and the M this go around...maybe there's a new technology that doesnt require as many zones to achieve the same results? doubt it, but its worth a look

All new Vizio models are going to be Full Array LED, E-series included.

120 zones does not equal 10x more than 16 zones.

And yes Vizio did have the XVT series a few years back, but it also cost a lot more. You can get one now for $699 on ebay as a refurb.

This TV was meant to fill a price point, and it does nicely. It is a good TV for the price.

There is a 4K P series that is suppose to have 64 zones and reasonably priced, around $2,300 for the 65". The 4K with over 300 zones is the reference series and has not been priced yet or even confirmed if we will even see it this year. That would be the unaffordable model for many.

Can you post a link to where you found the P series pricing?

sorry...what I should have said is the 55" version has only 12 zones where the XVT had 120, in a 55" size

hence the 10x

Sure the XVT cost a lot more and no doubt will have a lot better performance than this one...as the early reports I see

I get it was meant to fill a price point...entry level

I just think that full array is thrown out a marketing gimmick to make people this Tv will have the performance of the older Vizio full arrays with local dimming
and quite frankly..it most likely wont be even close

That $699 refurb could be a very good deal if you are critical TV watcher

Vizio's 65" P series will MSRP @ $2,199 and it will be able to display 4K content.

That is MSRP, so it may even be a bit cheaper yet.

Full Array LED is not a marketing gimmick. It is much better than Edge lit LED, and for better than CCFL TV's.

I really do not think that anyone will be comparing these new TV's with TV's from a few years back. Plus you get the different updated technologies and case.
